Veteran Music icon; Dolly Parton sent the world of social media into an encouraging spiral on Tuesday when the country superstar dressed up like a basic playboy bunny (ears, bow tie, and all) to wish her husband a happy birthday.
“It’s always #HotGirlSummer for my husband, Karl, happy birthday my love!” Wearing a sexy black bustier, black gloves, a white and pink bow tie, and bunny ears, the 75-year-old icon tweeted.
“You’re probably wondering why I’m dressed this way… well, it’s for my husband’s birthday,” Parton said in the video. “Remember a while back I said I was going to pose for Playboy magazine when I was 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have any magazines anymore.”
