Dolly Parton admits she looks "cheap".

The '9 to 5' singer - who is famed for her bleached blonde hair and big breasts - says she loves it when fans dress up as her and knows her look is easy to emulate.

She said: "We have a lot of people that dress up like me. I'm easy to do. Cheap wig, cheap bra, push up bra... And lots of make-up."

Dolly has made no secret she has previously gone under the surgeon's knife and says she would have been tempted to have 10 procedures done in one day like reality TV star Heidi Montag.

She said: "Oh, I would have probably done it when I was that age if I could have afforded it and thought I needed it.

"I'm open about surgery because people want to know. If you ask me about it, I'd rather tell you... I'd rather you think I had plastic surgery than to think I was a liar."

The 64-year-old star also spoke out in defence of Jessica Simpson, who has previously been criticised for looking curvy.

She told TV show 'Access Hollywood': "It hurts me. In fact, I have defended Jessica so many times 'cause I get so mad. I think, 'You don't even know her!'... and who has such a right to be so cruel and so mean? They just seem to want to hurt her for whatever their reasons are. I've had been made fun of enough in my lifetime especially when I was a child... It hurts and I know it hurts anybody."
