Dolly Parton Denies Lip-Synching Claims

Dolly Parton is responding directly to allegations that she was lip-syncing during her performance at the UK Glastonbury festival. 

The country legend denies the claims to Britain's Sun newspaper, saying, "My boobs are fake, my hair's fake but what is real is my voice and my heart." 

Dolly's performance Sunday was aired on TV, and the lip-synching allegations come from people who saw the broadcast.  British TV personality Stephen Fry came to Dolly's defense at the time, blaming the less-than-live look to her performance on HD technology. 

Parton's rep also denied the claims immediately, telling the UK media "some people don't know an amazing singer when they hear one." 

Festival organizer Emily Eavis has said Dolly had one of the largest crowds ever at Glastonbury.  Her audience, estimated at 100,000 people, was bigger than the headliners, which included Metallica and Arcade Fire. 

HollywoodReporter.com says Dolly's performance also drew the largest TV audience.  Two-point-six-million people tuned in to the BBC broadcast, which was 13-point-four-percent of all TV viewers at the time.
