Dolly has no plans to hang up the mic.


SINGER Dolly Parton has insisted she will never retire - unless she or her husband falls ill.

The American star said she hopes to still be in the music business well into her old age.

The 68-year-old, who performed at Glastonbury this year, said: "I hope to continue to go, unless my health should fail me or my husband should fall sick.

"I intend to work till I fall over. I would love to be able to be like Bob Hope and Betty White and a lot of those folks that work till they're 90 or 100 years old.

"I have no intention of retiring.'' Dolly also revealed she loves to hear her friends butcher her songs at karaoke.

She said: "I have seen my songs slaughtered pretty good by some of my friends. But it's always fun. It's always good fun.''
