Dolly Parton’s upcoming album, Rockstar, features a who’s who of rock legends and other LGBTQ allies.
The list includes Paul McCartney, Lizzo, Ringo Starr, Pat Benatar, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow, Debbie Harry, plus queer artists Melissa Etheridge, Miley Cyrus, Elton John…. and also, inexplicably, Kid Rock?
The Kid’s latest hateful and dangerous stunt shows him shooting up Bud Light beer cans with a rifle, in protest of Anheuser-Busch’s decision to send trans activist Dylan Mulvaney personalized Bud Light cans in celebration of her one-year anniversary of her transition.
Dolly has spoken out about people who criticize and judge LGBTQ people saying,
[Dollywood is] a place for entertainment, a place for all families, period.
It’s for all that. But as far as the Christians, if people want to pass judgment, they’re already sinning. The sin of judging is just as bad as any other sin they might say somebody else is committing. I try to love everybody.”
A recent article in EW was sort of critical of Rock’s presence on her the new album,
Still, the presence of Kid Rock might raise a few eyebrows and scratch a few heads since he’s known more for being the Worst than a rock singer these days, but even cowgirls get the blues and even Dollys make ill-advised decisions from time to time.”
Ill-advised decisions? You might say that, yes.
So, NOW what’s Dolly going to do? And what’s the LGBTQ community supposed to do..?
