Dolly Parton plans to die on stage.

The 65-year-old country music legend has no desire to retire in the near future and thinks that she will only stop performing when she passes away.

She said: "I plan on falling dead on stage someday, but not yet."

The '9 to 5' hitmaker also expressed a desire to duet with Lady Gaga, admitting she can "relate" to the eccentric pop superstar.

She said: "I'd love to sing on one of her records - wouldn't that be cool? I was outrageous long before she was. I dressed crazy before she was even born. I can definitely relate to what she's doing."

Despite her many achievements, Dolly insists she didn't deliberately set out to be a trailblazer for other female artists.

She told Elle magazine: "I didn't do this with the idea of pushing boundaries. It just so happened that I was a woman. I felt I had a lot of talent and as much right to use it as any man.

"I had confidence in myself as a woman as well as a writer and a singer so I thought, 'Well, I can use all of my goods.' "
