Dolly Parton says the Trump administration offered her the Presidential Medal of Freedom, not once but twice — and she turned it down both times. https://t.co/HTZ1L1EX9H— NPR Music (@nprmusic) February 2, 2021
In an interview on the Today show, Dolly Parton says she turned down the chance to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom twice during Trump's time in office. Her reasons for doing so are that her husband was ill for the first offer and the second came during the pierogi so she didn't want to travel. She says that she's not sure if she would accept the honor from Biden because it could look like she's "doing politics."
In other Dolly news, she recorded a version of her hit "9 to 5" called "5 to 9" for a Super Bowl ad for Squarespace that encourages people to make their "5 to 9 full time."
