“I just know if I have to pee, I’m going to pee. I don’t care where it’s going to be,” says the country music star.

In a recent interview with CNN Money, Dolly Parton offered her own assessment of North Carolina’s anti-LGBTQ “Bathroom Bill.”

"I think everybody should be treated with respect,” the country music star noted. “I don’t judge people, and I try not to get too caught up in the controversy of things. I hope that everybody gets a chance to be who and what they are.

“I just know if I have to pee, I’m going to pee,” she continued. “I don’t care where it’s going to be.” 

Parton recently started the Pure & Simple Tour — her biggest tour in years — which touched down Friday in Greensboro, N.C. Later this year, she plans to release a new album.
