• Dolly Parton was on the ballot to receive a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Award
  • She originally asked to be removed because she didn't feel she was a rockstar
  • She's now backtracking and thinking of doing a new genre of music!

Dolly Parton has a message for her fans! While most of the world would agree that she's an absolute icon very deserving of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Award, she wasn't so sure! Now, after some deliberation, the "Jolene" singer is changing her tune.

Dolly Parton apologizes for "stirring up controversy"

Speaking with Billboard, Dolly Parton apologized for the dilemma of wanting to be removed from the ballot that offered a spot in the prestigious museum. 

"I appreciate the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame people for staying there with me," she told the outlet. "I never meant to cause trouble or stir up any controversy."

"I've been working so hard on so many things and I've got to overcome this so-called controversy, which I never meant it to be that," she continued. " So now I'm in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame."

So what does this mean for her future in music? Well, the iconic country star said this has just inspired her to switch up her genre! If this means more music from Dolly, I'm sure the public won't even remember this controversy!

"I was trying to be nice and good about not trying to take something away from somebody that had truly earned it," she told the outlet when asked why she wanted her name removed from the ballot. A true Queen!

The indication ceremony will take place in November in Los Angeles, and Parton said that she's not totally sure if she'll attend. If she decides to, she will make sure to give one unforgettable performance!

"If I do, I'm going to sing the hardest style rock 'n' roll song I could ever muster up just to show that I can do it," she said.

And what better way to switch up a genre than to include some already iconic rockstars! Parton said that she might just ask Mick Jagger for some help!

"I've always wanted to do the song 'Satisfaction'," she said. "That's one of my husband's favourite songs. And I may have to drag Mick's guys up there to help me sing it."

Could you imagine! She continued, "I'm hoping we're both around long enough when I get to doing this record that he'll come sing with me, and I may have to use The Rolling Stones to play behind me."

This isn't the first time the humble star rejected recognition. Last year following much social change, Dolly Parton was petitioned by the public to have a statue in Tennessee. But in true Parton fashion, she politely asked to back out. You can read the full story of it here
