While you still can’t convince us he’s not some real-life Lex Luthor or James Bond villain, Jeff Bezos just did something pretty great. The former Amazon CEO just awarded American treasure and recent Rock Hall inductee Dolly Parton $100 million.
In a tweet, Bezos revealed Parton is the newest recipient of the Courage and Civility award, garnering the hefty sum. She’s in good company with this, too. Van Jones and Chef José Andrés are previous awardees for their tireless work across numerous charities.
We can’t think of anyone better.
The 2022 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will stream November 19th on HBO Max.
