Beyonce’s new album, Cowboy Carter, was released recently on March 29th, and there has been much conversation surrounding the album and, of course, Beyonce’s attempt to move into the country music genre. With it, as we know, Willie Nelson was featured on the record. She did a version of Dolly Parton’s Jolene.

And the focal point of much of the conversation now stems from comments made from The View host Joy Behar, because Behar, who recently appeared on the Behind the Table podcast, made comments that she prefers Beyonce’s version of Jolene over Dolly Parton’s. Now, before we dive into what Joy Behar had to say about Beyonce’s record and what Reba had to say, let’s take a look at the difference in the two songs. First, we’ll take a look at Beyonce’s version of Jolene.

For anyone who has not heard this song yet, here are some of the lyrics for it. I’m not going to go into the whole song, but I’m going to read some of it off so it’ll show the difference in her version and Dolly’s. So, Beyonce’s lyrics are, And now we’ll move into Dolly’s version of the song, which we are all familiar with, or at least I would hope we are all familiar with.

In her lyrics, it says, Now, again, I wanted to share those lyrics with you guys to show the difference in the songs. You have one song where the woman is simply saying, And then Dolly’s version, she’s basically pleading and begging for someone who is more beautiful than her to not take her man, as if it was easy to do because of her beauty. And well, because of Dolly’s lyrics, this is where Joy Behar had her remarks, claiming that Dolly’s version to her was anti-feminist.

Here’s what she had to say during her appearance on Behind the Table podcast. What you see here up on your screen is the article from Entertainment Weekly, who pulled what Joy Behar had to say into this article right here. And as you can see, Joy Behar from The View said, Joy Behar went on to say that because of Beyoncé’s more aggressive take of going toe-to-toe with someone taking her man, then Parton’s version of sort of backing off is what really gravitated her more towards the Beyoncé version.

She concluded and said, Now, I would imagine this would go without saying, but knocking Dolly Parton, especially her signature song, Jolene, is not going to sit well with very many people. And I’m not just talking fans. I’m also talking artists within the industry as well, because TMZ, like I said earlier, was able to catch up with another icon in country music, Reba McEntire, where they asked her about her thoughts on Joy Behar’s comments about Dolly Parton’s Jolene, as well as what it meant to her or what she felt for Beyoncé coming into country music.

Reba was asked, The interviewer for TMZ immediately followed up and asked Reba about her thoughts on Joy Behar’s comments on Dolly Parton’s Jolene, about it being anti-feminist to her. Reba simply laughed off her question and responded with, Isn’t it? And lastly, Reba was asked, As we have seen in the past, this is not the first time that View host Joy Behar has had some controversial comment about someone in the entertainment industry, music industry. But of course, when you start talking about Dolly Parton and you’re pretty much just mimicking or mocking or even putting down a signature song of a woman like Dolly, there’s gonna be a lot of people who have a different opinion than you and they’re not gonna be happy about it. And that’s definitely a hot take from Joy Behar.
