    Watch now: Netflix offers drag queen “Jolene” to promote “Dumplin'”

In it, a troupe of female impersonators from RuPaul’s Drag Race lip sync to a new amped-up version of “Jolene,” all while riding a mechanical bull and bashing a banjo, among other things. The music video starts as one queen comes face-to-face with the iconic Dolly statue on the town square in Sevierville, Tennessee. Along the way, you also catch […]
