It must be annoying to watch blogs, websites and magazines report that you’re on your deathbed. Loretta Lynn had something to say about it, in a recent Instagram post.

After a number of gossip-based blogs reported that Lynn is dying, Lynn responed. In a video posted to Instagram this weekend, Loretta Lynn said, “Hey, this says I’m in a nursing home and I’m on my deathbed? You’re kiddin’ me! I ain’t dead, and neither is Willie!”

The post reads, “Well, through the years they’ve said I’m broke, homeless, cheating, drinking, gone crazy, terminally ill, and even dead! Poor things can’t ever get it right. I guess if those old pesky tabloids are harassing me then they’re giving someone else a break……but I’m about an inch from taking ’em to Fist City!”

“Fist City,” of course, is Loretta Lynn’s 1968 hit, in which she threatens other women who might be interested in her husband.
