I'll get to the mind-blowing possibility of Lady Gaga collaborating with Dolly Parton in a sec, but first Gaga does India!

Lady Gaga is expanding her domination of the world with today's release of a Bollywood-inspired remix of "Born This Way." The high-energy Indian take on the song features a sitar intro and was produced by brother duo Salim-Sulaiman along with media company Desi Hits.

As for Gaga's recently released country version of the hit single, ya gotta read what Dolly told me just last night about the track...

"I think it's great," Parton exclusively told me backstage at the GLAAD Media Awards presented by Rokk Vodka, where she presented the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to our NBC Universal boss Robert Greenblatt. "It's just wonderful. I love her.

"Maybe we should do something together—GooGoo and Gaga!" she continued. "You know those GooGoo candy bars in Nashville? I could be Lady GooGoo."

And the good news doesn't stop there.

Parton said the movie that she and Queen Latifah made called Joyful Noise about a national choir competition should be in theaters after the new year. And yes, they sing together. "I wrote four of the numbers," the country legend said. "There are a couple we got to do together. There's a lot of great music in the movie."

Parton jetted into L.A. just for Greenblatt , who produced the Broadway musical adaptation of 9 to 5, before heading to Europe. "He's never been afraid to push the envelope or stand behind things that can make a difference in this world," Parton said. "And of course I know a little something about what it means to march to the beat of your own drum.

"I really do think that I stand for being proud of who you are and not worrying a lick about what other people think, really," she added. "I feel fortunate that I've never had to be anything other than myself and I know Bob has lived his life in exactly the very same way."
