Appearing Monday on Jimmy Kimmel, singer Dolly Parton said that she's proud of her gay fans.

Parton, 70, is promoting her latest studio album, Pure and Simple.

“There's a lot of people that dress up like you and come to the concert. Is that weird to look out into the audience?” Kimmel asked.

“It's fun,” Parton answered. “I'm used to it. I have a huge gay following and I'm proud of it.”

“I see so many drag queens out there – I see so many girls that look more like me than I do. So when I see them, instead of 'Jolene' I do 'Drag queen, drag queen, drag queen, I'm beggin' of you, don't take my man,'” she sang.

Imitating her, Parton said, was easy: “Just a stuffed bra and a cheap wig. That's how I've done it all these years.”
