Dolly Parton�s breasts derail upcoming tour

LOS ANGELES — Dolly Parton fans in America will have to wait a few more months to see the legendary country diva perform tracks from her new album live on tour.
Parton had been scheduled to kick off a 13-show tour on Feb. 28 in Minneapolis to support her soon to be released CD Backwoods Barbie. However an unspecified back problem related to her famous breasts has forced the singer to postpone her North American tour.
"Hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don't have back problems," the down home country superstar said in a statement.
According to an Associated Press report, doctors have advised Parton to take up to eight weeks off to recover.
"I know I have been breaking my neck and bending over backwards trying to get my new 'Backwoods Barbie' CD and world tour together, but I didn't mean to hurt myself doing it," Parton added in the statement.
Ever cheerful, Parton also said doctors told her she will be "good as new in a few weeks, and I can't wait to get back out there."
The tour will be rescheduled for late April through May and tickets will be honored for the new dates. Gay Link Content
