Dolly Parton has joked that she has plastic surgery to please her fans.

But the singer, 63, admits she’s frightened of going under the knife.

‘I’m a proud person, I’m not vain,’ says Dolly.

‘I look at it like it is – if you’ve got the money and you’re going to be out there, you owe it to people not to look like a dog if you can help it.’

Dolly, famed for her big bust, insists her image gives her star quality.

‘I dress this way for the same reasons I did when I first started doing it,’ she tells New York Magazine.

‘It still comes from a serious place inside of me. I want to shine, I want to glitter.

‘I’m just doing it to look like Dolly – the Dolly that I know and the Dolly that you know.’
