It turns out Dolly Parton is just like the rest of us ...

The cherished country queen got "so excited" about running into Duran Duran on the red carpet at the 37th Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony that she couldn't resist crashing their interview.

Before the festivities kicked off inside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Simon Le Bon, John Taylor, Roger Taylor and Nick Rhodes stopped for an interview with Access, but they hardly had a chance to speak before Parton crashed the scene to show her love for her fellow inductees.

"I’m so excited to be here with all (of you)," she told the '80s synth-pop band. Then, realising she'd just unintentionally interrupted, she added: "Go ahead! I didn’t mean to horn in on you."

But bassist John Taylor enthusiastically urged her to stay, saying: "You horn on in!"

Parton originally didn’t think she belonged in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and asked to be removed from consideration, but the Hall denied the request. 

Along with Parton and Duran Duran, the 2022 inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included Eminen, Lionel Richie, Pat Benatar, Eurythmics, and Carly Simon.
