Dolly Parton used to stop business meetings ''for a minute'' so that the men could stare at her boobs.The '9 To 5' hitmaker understands that ''everyone'' wants to look at her bulging bosoms and, in a bid to stop potential clients from spending her whole pitch gazing at her chest, she would kick off the meetings by giving them 60 seconds to get their fix before they had to give her their full attention.
Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper's Event magazine, Dolly Parton said: ''Everybody wants to look. I always understood guys would want to look at my boobs.
''I would say in a business meeting: 'I'll give you a minute to look at these but then I want you to listen to what I have to say because I'm here to make money for all of us.' ''
And the 72-year-old country singer is not afraid to go under the knife to keep her perky assets and youthful looks because she believes her appearance is what keeps her famous.
Dolly Parton explained: ''If I see something saggin', baggin' or draggin', I'm gonna have it nipped, tucked or sucked. I have my standards!''
Meanwhile, although Dolly Parton's had a highly successful career over the years, the blonde bombshell recently admitted that she used to sleep in a car with her uncle when she first started singing.
She said: ''We'd sleep in the car, that was our room ... my bedroom was the backseat and Bill's was the front seat. I'd wash my hair in the filling station bathrooms and put makeup on in the side mirror of the car, and that was just how you did it.''
The country legend grew up with 11 siblings in East Tennessee and times were so tough for them that they were forced to get by without any running water.
Despite their difficulties, Dolly's mother Avie always encouraged her to follow her dreams - even though her dad Robert wasn't as keen as his little girl being a singer.
She explained: ''Daddy didn't want me getting out in the world. He didn't even want me to go to school - but that wasn't in a bad way he was just afraid something bad was gonna happen to his girls.
''But Momma knew that I had a strength. She knew I knew what I wanted and who I was so she would fight for me a lot when I'd wanted to go places Daddy didn't want me to go to sing, like to Nashville with my Uncle Bill", Dolly parton added.
