Country-singer Dolly Parton has postponed an upcoming US tour due to a back injury -- and she reckons her legendary bust size might have something to do with it.
Parton, 62, said in a statement on her website Monday that doctors had advised her to take six to eight weeks off to recover, forcing her to shelve the start of a tour due to get underway on February 28.
AdvertisementThe tour was due to coincide with the release of Parton's new album "Backwoods Barbie" later this month.
"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 said in the statement.
"But hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don't have back problems," she quipped.
"Seriously though, the doctors said I will be good as new in a few weeks, and I can't wait to get back out there. See you soon, Dolly."
