Dolly Parton to Launch Makeup Line

Beauty Byte: Dolly Parton Makes a Makeup Plan

Country superstar Dolly Parton has a busy 2008 planned. Not only is she writing the score for a Broadway rendition of her 1980 movie 9 to 5, but she's also working on a television show for children and an autobiographical musical. Now she's hoping to launch a cosmetics line of her own.

Dolly told Billboard Magazine:

I want my own cosmetics line. When I first came [to Nashville] I really was the backwoods Barbie. Too much makeup, too much hair, the big boobs, country girl straight out of the mountains. It’s hard to take somebody looking like that serious, I guess, so I had to work double hard to prove myself.

Dolly has famously said, "It takes a lot of money to look this cheap." I kinda love her for poking fun at her over-the-top appearance, and because she's so sweet (and a philanthropist!) I could imagine checking out one of her lipsticks for fun. Would you?
