Dolly Parton To Star In TikTok Musical About Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza And We’re As Confused As You Are

There are so many words that seemingly don’t belong together in a headline just above this bit of writing.. , but it’s happening!

Dolly Parton is set to star in a TikTok musical about Taco Bell’s Mexican pizza in the U.S, which will premiere later this month.

The musical will be released a week after Mexican pizza returns to Taco Bell's menu.

It  is set to be a satirical take on the “internet losing its mind” after Taco Bell removed the “Mexican pizza” menu item back in 2020.

Parton announced the news via an Instagram post, which contained a photo of the screenplay.

"I'm making #MexicanPizzaTheMusical with @TacoBell," Parton wrote in an Instagram post.

Parton may seem like an unlikely addition to the cast. However, Parton has been vocal about her love of Taco Bell and is also a fan of the Mexican pizza. In January, she said in an interview that she thinks it should be brought back to menus.

“They used to make a little ... Mexican Pizza,” Parton said of Taco Bell, “which is also good. I love that.”

Taco Bell’s musical is written by Hannah Friedman with music by Grammy award-winning songwriting duo Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear.

Taco Bell’s musical will be released at 8 p.m. ET on May 26, a week after Mexican pizza returns to its menu.

“#MexicanPizzaTheMusical is really happening. Let’s do this!” Taco Bell tweeted with a photo of its Playbill
