Because bigger projects keep popping up. And she’s not talking about her boobs!
Dolly says she’s been working on an album geared towards the LGBT community since 2014, but fans will have to wait even longer for the gay-centric record. Why’s that? She’s hitting the road with her first major North American tour in over 25 years to promote her new album, Pure & Simple.
“Every time I start to work on that, something else comes up, like this big tour,” she recently told reports. “I’ll have to put that dance album on the shelf again. But one day I promise you I will get that out. One of the songs is I’m a Wee Bit Gay. It’s a fun, tongue-in-cheek type of song. I promise I’ll get it out.”
The country legend is well aware of the amount of fans she’ll be disappointing in the LGBT community, who she identifies with strongly.
“I’ve fought for the right to be myself, so that is one of the reasons that the gays and lesbians relate to me. They know that I appreciate everybody for who they are. We are who we are, so why can’t we be allowed to be that? I ain’t out to preach no sermons, I’m just out to do my work, sing my songs and write them, and love people and share them.”
See why we love her so much?
