Dolly Parton says give starlets a break – Tabloid Hell

Country singer sticks up for Britney and Lindsay

Dolly Parton has jumped to the defense of Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, and reckons the pair deserve a break from the constant media coverage.

The star spoke out last night (August 4) at her concert at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre.

Parton said: “Poor little Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. Ain’t it awful? If those little girls slept with as many men as they say in the tabloids, why their little butts would have more fingerprints than the FBI!”

According to, Parton continued: “I kinda feel sorry for them. We should give those two a break.”

Meanwhile, Parton is preparing for the Broadway version of her hit 1980 movie ‘Nine To Five’. The country superstar wrote the music and lyrics and music for the production herself, and its Broadway run is due to begin in April 2009.
