Dolly Parton Is ‘GooGoo’ For Lady Gaga

Our Country

Last month's reaction from the country community to Lady Gaga's much-hyped "country road version" of "Born This Way" was, well, mixed (to say the least)--with the meter unfortunately dipping toward "negative." However, here's one true-blue country gal who is a fan of Gaga's heartland outreach...and with her on your side, who needs anyone else?

Yup, none other than the legendary Dolly Parton has admitted she loves Gaga's attempt at country. "I think it's great," she told E! entertainment reporter Marc Malkin backstage at the 2011 GLAAD Media Awards, which were held Sunday night. "It's just wonderful. I love her."

Parton, who was presenting an award that evening, went on to confide to Malkin that she wouldn't be averse at all to actually collaborating with Gaga. "Maybe we should do something together--GooGoo and Gaga!" she kidded. "I could be Lady GooGoo."

Don't get the joke? GooGoo Clusters are a candy bar sold in Nashville since 1912. Apparently Parton is as fond of the confection as she is Gaga's music. (Don't worry--not having a big sweet tooth myself, I didn't know what she was talking about either at first.)

All this confided--I think Dolly and Gaga would make a terrific combination. Aside from the fact that they are both prodigiously talented, there's their hair...their outfits...their glitz...let's just say they both are good at grabbing the spotlight!

Would you like to hear the two women duet together? Be sure to let me know what you think!
