Dolly Parton plans film or musical

Dolly Parton has revealed that she might turn her life story into a musical.

The country singer is currently working on charting her journey through life for a new film - and it may take on a musical flavour.

"I haven't decided if it's going to be for stage or film," she said.

"I'm still working on both, and at some point, I may decide to do the whole story of my life as a musical in a movie!"

But she admits while songwriting comes naturally to her, she's finding the parts in between more tricky.

"I didn't enjoy writing my life story. It's too tricky. I can tell the truth in a song and nobody knows what part's true and what part's not. I can skirt around the truth and make it more acceptable, by finding the humour in it and all. It's fun writing the music about myself," she said.
