Dolly Parton, who wowed the crowds at the Glastonbury Festival on Sunday has hit back at claims that she was miming during her performance.
She told The Sun: "My boobs are fake, my hair's fake but what is real is my voice and my heart."
The 68-year-old drew the biggest crowd of the festival when around 100,000 people flocked to the Pyramid Stage on Sunday to see her sing hits including Jolene and Blue Smoke.
Parton's spokesman told The Sun: "It's ridiculous to suggest Dolly was miming. She's been performing for more than 60 years - she doesn't need to.
"This should not overshadow what was truly a great gig and accomplished performance. Dolly adored every single moment."

The organiser of Glastonbury has hailed this year's festival as a "great success" and said he already has next year's headliners sorted.
Farmer Michael Eavis said: "Myself, I think I can run another six years, which would take me up to about 50 years.. and then see what happens after that."
Mr Eavis said he remained hopeful that Prince would one day play. "We're always having a go at Prince, but you know it's up to him whether he wants to do it or not.
"Most of the people in the world want to play here so I did ask him to hop on the train and come down to Castle Cary station and I'll show him around the farm some time.
"It hasn't been taken up yet though."
He went on: "We've got three headliners for next year already. And that's without Prince.
