Dolly Parton’s done it all, releasing award-winning albums, built an empire that includes the theme park, Dollywood, plus even starring in her own Christmas specials. Now the 75-year-old’s wish of posing for Playboy a second time could be coming true.
Dolly Parton spoke her dream into existence. TMZ reports that in March of this year, the country music legend told “60 Minutes Australia” that “she hopes to grace the cover again when she turned 75.” Parton even joked about wearing the same costume as before because her “assets” are the same. She admits that she’s not sure if the iconic magazine would go for it.
Parton has her sights set on posing for Playboy’s January 2021 issue. As a matter of fact, she and the magazine will both turn 75 next year. The higherups at Playboy have heard her wish, and are now granting it.
“The magazine would love to shoot Dolly again, and she knows all she has to do is say the word, and it’s on!” Playboy tells TMZ.
Parton first graced the cover of the entertainment magazine back in October 1978. The country music legend was 32 years old, and even donned the famous Playboy bunny costume that showed off her curvy figure.
Fun fact, Parton would not be the oldest woman at 75 to pose for the magazine. That record’s still held by Victori Valentino who posed for Playboy at 77 years old.
Now that we know Playboy’s fully on board, were just waiting for Parton to officially accept the invitation.
Dolly Parton Also Makes Coronavirus Vaccine Headlines
Just today (Nov. 17), Parton’s pledge of $1 million to COVID-19 vaccine research has come to light. The star made the donation in April to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. VUMC has played a critical part in the development of the vaccine for the virus.
That’s not all Parton’s done this year. She also releases her first Christmas album in 30-years, “A Holly Dolly Christmas”. Parton’s also starring in the Netflix Christmas special “Dolly Parton’s Christmas on The Square.”
Additionally she’s set to release her new book Dolly Parton, Songteller: My Life in Lyrics.
