Dolly Parton Doesn’t Lose Her Temper, She Uses It


Dolly Parton recently told Nancy O’Dell that she seems sweet and bubbly because she doesn’t lose her temper, she uses it.

She said on TalkShopLive, "I’m just a regular person. I’m not one where I’m one person out here and another [in private]. I’m a businessperson. Sometimes you’ve just kind of gotta pitch a fit to get it done or get it done right."

The 77-year-old “Jolene” singer added, “I don’t lose my temper, but I use my temper. Of course, I’ve lost it a few times but it’s not that I’m losing my temper, I’m trying to use it because sometimes there are just some people you have to speak up to."
