Dolly Parton wants to recreate her iconic Playboy cover for her 75th birthday next year.

The country music singer famously posed on the cover of Playboy magazine back in 1978, when she was aged 32, dressed as a Playboy bunny. 

And she’s not ready to hang up her bunny ears just yet.

Speaking to 60 Minutes Australia the 74-year-old revealed she hopes to recreate the Playboy cover 42 years on in celebration of her 75th birthday in January 2021.

“I don’t plan to retire. I just turned 74 and I plan to be on the cover of Playboy Magazine again,” she said.

“See I did Playboy magazine years ago and I thought it’d be such a hoot if they’ll go for it - I don’t know if they will - if I could be on the cover again when I’m 75.”

When the interviewer asked if she would recreate the original cover wearing the same black leotard and bunny ears, the ‘Jolene’ singer replied: “Maybe!”

“I could probably use it,” she continued before jokingly adding: “Boobs are still the same.”

Parton appeared on the magazine’s October 1978 cover when she was 32 years old becoming the first country star to grace the cover of the magazine.

Later in the 60 Minutes Australia interview, Parton discussed the cosmetic surgery she’s had done and why she doesn’t expect her look to change much as she gets older.

“I’ve had about all the nips and tucks I can have,” she said. “The good part with me though, I have my own look. I look kind of cartoonish and cartoons don’t really age that much.”

“Even when I’m 90, I’ll still probably look about the same way. Just thicker make-up and bigger hair,” she added.

The legendary singer is currently promoting the release of her new documentary, The Library That Dolly Built.

The feature-length documentary original music from Dolly and is narrated by actress and author Danica McKellar, and is due for release in April.

If Parton does go on to recreate her original Playboy cover, she wouldn’t be the first former playboy bunny to get back into character.

Back in 2017 the pin-up magazine asked seven former Playmates to recreate their iconic covers in a bid to celebrate ageing and remind people that beauty is timeless.

Memorable faces from the 80s joined those from the early 90s in a series of eye-catching covers that surprisingly preserve each of the models’ dignities.

“Once a Playmate, always a Playmate,” as Hugh Hefner once said.
