GloRilla Jokes About Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ Following Beyoncé Cover

GloRilla seems to have hopped on the country train as she has now shared her thoughts on one of the genre’s most famous fictional characters.

On Sunday (March 31), the Memphis native shared a succinct tweet about the central figure of Dolly Parton’s 1973 hit “Jolene,” which Beyoncé notably covered on her latest album Cowboy Carter.

“I woulda shot Jolene,” the 24-year-old joked about the song, which was written from the perspective of a woman who is insecure about someone more beautiful than her stealing her husband.

Check out the unhinged social media post below.

Parton recently shared her love and appreciation for Beyoncé after she became the first Black woman to top Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with “Texas Hold ‘Em.”

“I’m a big fan of Beyoncé and very excited that she’s done a country album,” Parton wrote on social media. “So congratulations on your Billboard Hot Country number one single. Can’t wait to hear the full album. Love, Dolly Parton.”

Likewise, Magic Johnson left no doubts about where he stands in terms of his favorites in music, singling out Bey as his pick for the greatest entertainer ever among women.

In late March, soon after the release of Cowboy Carter, the NBA legend shared a photograph he took with Queen B a few years back along with a heartfelt note about her excellence and legacy.

The Lakers legend concluded: “You are women’s history! Just like I say Michael Jackson is the greatest male entertainer of all time, you are the greatest female entertainer of all time. I’m looking forward to seeing how you bring more representation into the country genre and continue to use your platform to uplift and amplify the Black voice.”
