Dolly Parton: 'since I had no kids' I had freedom, I was free to work'
Dolly Parton recently turned 75. It feels like we?ve been getting a lot of Dolly-themed retrospectives over the past year, but I don?t think it?s just about the big milestone birthday. I think Dolly has just been open to looking back on her decades-long career in film and music and she?s always looking to stay relevant with the next generation. That?s probably why she?s signed up for the Netflix deal a few years ago, and why she?s been more open lately. I mean, Dolly is a national/international treasure. Surely, she?s one of the few people everyone can agree on: Dolly is the best. Well, Dolly decided to sit down with Oprah for AppleTV?s The Oprah Conversation, which is just one long-form interview. They discussed being childfree and plastic surgery and a lot of other stuff:

Her freedom without kids: Since I had no kids, and my husband was pretty independent, I had freedom. So I think a big part of my whole success is the fact that I was free to work. I didnt have children because I believed that God didnt mean for me to have kids so everybodys kids could be mine, so I could do things like Imagination Library because if I hadnt had the freedom to work, I wouldnt have done all the things Ive done. I wouldnt be in a position to do all of the things Im doing now.

Whether she believes there were more sacrifices than rewards in her career: Ive made sacrifices, but I think, like I said, I believe what I know Im supposed to do.

Her approach to aging. I dont think about my life in terms of numbers. First of all, I aint never gonna be old because I aint got time to be old. I cant stop long enough to grow old, she shared with a laugh. Parton went on to say that shes going to be the best I can be at whatever age. I bet you I wont look much different when Im 95, if I live that long, because Im like the Gabor sisters. Im gonna look like a cartoon. Ill have on the makeup. Ill look as young as my plastic surgeons will allow me and [with] all the makeup and lighting and all that. But I think more than anything, its about what comes from inside you. Its an attitude, and you gotta shine from within. Sometimes, that can make you feel young and make you seem young to other people.?

It?s interesting to me that Oprah would ask Dolly about being childfree, since Oprah is also childfree. Two of (arguably) the most famous, powerful and beloved women in the world, and both of them chose not to be mothers. I always wondered if Dolly always knew that she wouldn?t have kids though I mean, consider her generation, consider the pressure to have a certain kind of life and branding within country music and all of that. She must have gotten the ?are you going to have kids? questions for years and years.

As for all of the plastic surgery talk? Dolly gets away with so much because she?ll always be the first person to admit it, to talk about what she?s gotten done and now the plastic surgery is part of her brand too.
