Dolly Parton - Dolly Parton Needs High Heels At Home

Dolly Parton wears high heels at home because she can't reach her kitchen cabinets without them.

The diminutive 4' 11'' singer is famous for her heavily made up appearance and although the 65-year-old star favours a more casual look at home, she can't survive without her stilettos.

She explained: "If you saw me at home you'd recognise me but I don't have all the gaud, though I usually wear high heels because I'm so short I can't even reach the kitchen cabinets without them."

However, Dolly would never consider leaving her home in Tennessee without her trademark heavy make-up or one of her famous wigs.

She said: "I always put on my make-up, my hair and my clothes to go shopping."

While Dolly has previously admitted to taking style tips from a prostitute, she is still shocked by the provocative clothing worn by younger pop stars.

She added in an interview with Radio Times magazine: "I'm amazed at some of the things they get away with but I was outrageous before they were even born. I understand where they're coming from. You feel more on the inside than you look on the outside so if you're not a natural beauty you're going to have to make yourself look the way you think."
