Dolly Parton was on "TalkShop Live" with Nancy O'Dell to promote her new book and album when the conversation turned to whether or not she ever gets angry - which is kind of hard to envision for most of us. But Dolly is human, so of course she gets mad on occasion - and when she gets pushed to that point, the country queen does not hold back.
"Like I’ve always said, I’ll tell ya where to put it if I don’t like where you got it. I think anybody’s like that. You can’t just go through life just floating around getting anything done. 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," she said. "Because if they don’t know, especially as a shock, for somebody like me to raise my voice to people, that’s not what they’re used to."
Parton explained that while she doesn't tend to raise her voice, "Sometime it is for an effect because some people just won’t listen otherwise. But, yeah, you gotta push me pretty far to get me stirred up — but then I become my daddy."
