The legendary country singer was recently photographed with what looked to be a rose tattoo in between her breasts while attending the premiere of her latest movie Joyful Noise.
However, she told talk show host Anderson Cooper that the tattoo was not real, and that she found it "obscene".
"Was that not the ugliest picture you've ever seen?" she told Cooper. "That looks like something obscene. Do you see that? Do you see it?"
Cooper asked: "Do you have tattoos?" She replied: "I might. But I'm not going to show them until they catch me at it."
Dolly Parton is currently working on a Broadway musical based upon her life.
