Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton Talk Joyful Noise

I loved meeting Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, it was a blessing witnessing the chemistry of both icons in person! The two saved “Joyful Noise” with their funny banter and over-the-top screaming matches. But in person, both were sweet…to each other.

In this interview, we talked about:

*** Their chemistry
*** How the movie came about (to Latifah, who also executive produced the movie)
*** What attracted Dolly to her character G.G., short for Gorgeous Grandma
*** They’re the Yin and the Yang in the movie
*** Shooting their infamous diner scene
*** Popping for God
