USA TodayQueens recognize queens. Country music legend Dolly Parton took to social media Monday to wish pop icon Cher a happy birthday. The 40-second video shows Parton teasing about her and Cher’s age — each star turned 73 this year — before sincerely singing a line of “I Will Always Love You.” “I think we’re holdin’ up pretty good for our age. What’re we now, 37?” Parton joked. “Anyway, I just want you to know I’m proud of you; I think you’re great. I hope you’ll be around for 100 more years – to hang out with me, if nothin’ else.” Watch the video below. Happy Birthday @cher!
