Dolly Parton wants to see herself on the cover of Playboy — again!

In a recent interview with 60 Minutes Australia, the legendary entertainer, 74, revealed she has no plans to slow anytime soon and that she has her sights set on appearing in Playboy magazine next year.

“I don’t plan to retire. I just turned 74 and I plan to be on the cover of Playboy Magazine again,” she shared. “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 asked if she would like to create her original cover, which was released in October 1978, Parton said, “Maybe!”

“I could probably use it,” she said of the original outfit, adding, “Boobs are still the same.”

The “9 to 5” singer made history as the first country artist to appear in the iconic magazine.

Parton went on to chat about the plastic surgery she has had done over the years and explain why she doesn’t think she’ll look any different she she continues to age.

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

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

The superstar has been making media rounds in support of her new biography coming to A&E in April. Biography: Dolly premieres Sunday, April 12 at 8pm ET/PT.
