Dolly Parton’s still got it: Watch her on the ‘Today’ show (Video)

Dolly Parton has still got it.

The 65-year-old country diva appeared on the “Today” show this morning to promote “Joyful Noise,” her new movie about a gospel choir from a struggling Georgia town that, okay, fine, has not been getting the best reviews ahead of its release Friday.

But who cares about reviews when Dolly is rapping with her on-screen rival, real-life buddy Queen Latifah, on morning television. And joking in her honey-sweet tone about how she can’t be down to Earth because she’s an “artificial-looking thing.” And belting out a gospel tune with her angelic twang. Never change, Dolly.

Watch the “Joyful Noise” stars rap and sing below. Dolly’s interview with Queen Latifah and Ann Curry, which featured a shocking amount of swear words for pre-noon TV, can be viewed here.
