Here’s The Final Cut Of “Gotta Be You” From “80 For Brady” Feat. Dolly Parton, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan And Their Kid Sister Belinda Carlisle
Dolly Parton famously wrote I Will Always Love You and Jolene on the same night, so it should be no surprise that she was able to squirt out a dribbly little ditty as a favor to a couple of old friends in less time than it takes her to remove her false eyelashes at the end of the day. When Dolly’s homegirls Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin found themselves in a bind, having agreed to go against God’s Plan by signing up for starring roles in Tom Brady’s mid-post-post-career vanity project, 80 for Brady, alongside Sally Field and Rita Moreno, and needed help, Dolly was right there to lend a hand. And Dolly’s no Rose from Titanic! Her door is as wide as it is strong, and it’s always open to a friend in need. Dolly secured her rings and baubles and such before reaching her hand down into the frigid, inky-black depths of Tom’s ego and pulled her girls to safety. She then got her little orange emergency whistle out and started looking for other innocent souls at risk of drowning in Tom’s insatiable abyss. As dawn arose on that fateful night, Dolly’s door was teeming with refugees from the floating wreckage of Tom’s post-divorce career.
I just knew Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda were gonna try to pull Dolly Parton into this mess! And here we are. Consequences of Sound reports that Dolly’s going to contribute to a song on the soundtrack for 80 for Brady, that CTE inducing movie produced by Tom Brady, starring Dolly’s old 9 to 5 crew of working stiffs plus Rita Moreno and Sally Field pretending they’ve never seen an Oscars podium before. But if anybody’s going to save that drek from complete and utter dreckitude, it’s Dolly. Shit, she saved the Mexican Pizza AND New Year’s Eve. So she should have no problem saving her girls from making absolute fools of themselves. But Harry Hamlin’s on his own!
Most people who are lucky enough to perform during the Super Bowl Halftime Show look back at it with fond memories. Jennifer Lopez, however, is not like most people. Even though she put on a killer set with Shakira, JLo initially thought that co-headlining the Halftime Show was the “worst idea in the world.” Apparently, she didn’t think there was enough time for each performer. And well, JLo may have gotten even less stage time if Miami icon Gloria Estefan took the offer to make an appearance. But Gloria said no and wonders what JLo would’ve said if she had to share the stage with not one, but TWO more performers.
The Estefan family is full of talent. There’s consummate performer Gloria Estefan and her husband Emilio (he’s a producer who was in Miami Sound Machine with her), their daughter Emily Estefan is a singer-songwriter, and now there’s a new Estefan-related, white-hot hip-hop talent emerging from the underground to slay us with her lyrical flow.
