Why Dolly Parton always sleeps with her makeup on. Nothing gets between Dolly Parton and her glam – not even sleep.
The country music legend has recently admitted that she doesn’t wash her makeup off before going to bed.
She told the New York Times: “I clean my face in the morning. You never know if you’re going to wreck the [tour] bus, you never know if you’re going to be somewhere in a hotel and there’s going to be a fire. So I leave my makeup on at night and clean my face in the morning.”
Dolly also revealed that she never goes on rides at Dollywood, her famous theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, as she fears ruining her hair or outfit.
“With all my hair I got so much to lose, like my wig or my shoes. I don’t like to get messed up. I’m gonna have some handsome man mess it up, I don’t want some ride doing it.”
Keeping up appearances seems to be more than a ‘9 to 5’ job for Parton.
The ‘Jolene’ singer opened up about how her family holidays influenced how she survives on the road, saying: “I used to take my family on trips and vacations. We would go all over the world. We’d stop in and have food, but we’d take a lot of our own food. You’d take your own good pillows and your little things, which I still do to this day. Even when I travel overseas, I take my pillows, I take a few snack foods and other things that you might not be able to get.
“[My favourite snacks include] Potted meat. Or weird things like Vienna sausage. That and a bottle of Tabasco: If I can’t eat whatever they’re cooking, I can always have that.”
