Apparently, sweatpants aren’t fit for Country queens.

Dolly Parton recently told WSJ although she likes to be “comfortable like everybody else,” she does not “wear sweat clothes.” Pretty incredible if you ask us, especially after a year of quarantine where we admit, we lived in our “sweat clothes” (sorry, Dolly!)

So what does “comfy” mean to Dolly? Surely she isn’t wearing her rhinestoned, fringe dresses around her home, or is she?

"I have my own little house clothes, like a little dress-type teddy, a long teddy, then I have a little jacket or shirt to match if I get cold,” she shared. “I call them my baby clothes because they’re soft like a baby.”

Sophisticated house clothes aren’t the only thing “next level” about Dolly - she also wears make-up to bed.

"I usually try to keep my makeup on at night," she said. "Because I never know if there’s going to be an earthquake or a tornado or a storm and I’m going to have to go out in the middle of the night!"

Also a very convenient strategy for someone who says she normally wakes up at 3am.

"Even when I'm working late on shows and concerts, I can wake up early," she explained. "I just don't require a lot of sleep!"

So where does she get all her fun-loving energy from? Must be her breakfast of champions (err, excuse us, QUEENS), which Dolly shared is usually egg salad and tomato on toast or a bagel and cream cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes (if she’s feeling extra special).

Oh, and don’t forget that cup of ambition… or two ;)
