Here is the recap: Country Music legend Kenny Rogers appeared on The Bobby Bones Show last week to talk about his new album, his new duet with Dolly Parton and more. He also expressed how he thinks Miley Cyrus' latest headline grabbing moves are 'a sad mistake' and advises caution for those in the public eye.
We were sent over the following excerpts. On handling fame
I look at Lindsay Lohan out there
what happens is, the big fear in this business is not being recognized
look at Miley Cyrus and what she's doing now. Is it going to work? It's going to get her some press. In LA, any press is good press. They're talking about it. Not for me. I don't need that kind of stuff and I think it's a sad mistake. And I think people have to be careful. You have to live with it, more so now than ever before. Anything you do now is going to be around forever. It's just dangerous."
On whether he was ever in love with Dolly
Rogers: "I've always been in love with Dolly, in a very safe place
it's hard to really know her and not love her because she's the most unpretentious person I've ever met. I've said it before, and I'm not sure she likes it when I say this, she has no filter. If it goes through her mind, it comes out her mouth. And she can say things to people no one else can say and somehow it's a compliment
She's just always been that way. She's always been very straightforward. People say 'is Dolly as sweet in person as she is?' and I always tell them 'if you like her on TV, you will love her in person because she's that and more.'"
On competing in the Country music landscape
Rogers: "There's only two ways I can compete. I can do what everybody else is doing and do it better. And I don't like my chances of doing that. Or I can do something nobody else is doing and you don't invite comparison
So I've always kinda been outside the box cause I can't do the things Keith Urban does or Taylor Swift or those guys, so I just have to do what I do." - Stream the full interview here.
