Stella Parton, the younger sister of renowned singer Dolly Parton, took to Twitter to vehemently defend Dolly’s halftime show during the Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving game. Stella personally praised Dolly’s appearance in a Dallas Cowboys cheerleading costume, describing her as “cute as hell.” She didn’t mince words when addressing critics, expressing strong disapproval for those who found fault with a 77-year-old artist embracing such a performance. Stella went on to assert that the shame lay with the critics rather than Dolly and bluntly told them to “fuck yourself.”
The impassioned tweet served as a robust defense of Dolly’s halftime performance, during which she entertained the audience with renditions of classics like “Jolene” and “9 to 5.” Dolly also showcased her versatility with covers of Queen’s anthems “We Are the Champions” and “We Will Rock You.” Notably, she adorned herself in a low-cut crop top, hot pants, a fringe jacket, and bedazzled pantyhose.
Stella’s tweet echoed a deep sisterly support for Dolly, countering any negative commentary surrounding the spirited and age-defying performance. Dolly Parton, an enduring figure in the entertainment industry, has maintained her popularity across generations, and Stella’s tweet underscored the sisters’ united front against detractors.

I personally thought my big sister Dolly was cute as hell in her Dallas Cowboys cheerleading costume at the half time show on Thanksgiving. To those of you being so critical of a 77 year old kicking up her heels, I say fuck yourself. Shame on you not her.
