Lady Gaga has a fan in Dolly Parton -- and more in India -- with 'Born This Way' remixes

April 13, 2011 |  2:18 pm

Lady Gaga's country version of "Born This Way" has sparked the interest of country legend Dolly Parton, who said she's up for a collaboration.

"Maybe we should do something together -- GooGoo and Gaga!" Parton told E News. "You know those GooGoo candy bars in Nashville? I could be Lady GooGoo."

GooGoo or Gaga, we'd love to see what Mother Monster could birth if she's working 9 to 5.

"I think it's great. It's just wonderful. I love her," Parton said of the "Born This Way" remix.

Dolly Parton is open to collaborating with Lady Gaga"I think she's great," the 65-year-old singer told the Associated Press. "I've always been very gaudy myself, ever since I started in the business, but I always get a kick out of the crazy stuff she does. But she's very musical, she's very talented actually."

Parton is set to star with Queen Latifah in the film "Joyful Noise," which tells the story of a national choir competition. Her album "Better Day" will be released this summer.

As for Lady Gaga, who is hopefully recovering from that nasty fall off a piano during a performance in Houston, she's also debuted the Bollywood-inspired version of the same single with a sitar introduction produced by Salim-Sulaiman and the media company Desi Hits. Perhaps she should consider titling the song "Born Many Ways."

"I worked with some Indian Producers on 'BORN THIS WAY' to show all the little monsters in India that I appreciate you!" she tweeted.  Listen to the remix here.

Gaga, 24, is finishing up her Monster Ball tour in May and will release her highly anticipated "Born This Way" album May 23.
