Dolly Parton Accused of Miming at Glastonbury

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Fans of country singer Dolly Parton are divided over claims she was miming during her Glastonbury debut at the weekend.

The 68-year-old legend drew a bigger crowd to her set than headliners Metallica and Arcade Fire but her performance soon caused a Twitter show-down over her apparent lip-syncing.

British news presenter Kay Burley was one of the first to speak up, tweeting: “Oh, Dolly’s miming. How disappointing.”

This kicked off a war of words between fans of the singer on social media…with fellow celebs leaping to Dolly’s defence!

Singer Boy George snapped back at newsreader Kay by tweeting: “Well I hear you wear false eyelashes?” Erm, right.

“That’s not miming. If it appears not always to lip-sync that’s an HD live processor issue. You see it with reporters,” comedian Stephen Fry tweeted.

A spokesperson for Dolly slammed the lip-sync rumours, saying: “No, she sings live. Some people don’t know an amazing singer when they hear one.”
