Dolly Parton has revealed she plans to celebrate turning 75 in style, saying she is in talks to pose for Playboy magazine.

The music legend, who will celebrate her birthday in January, previously appeared on the cover of the publication at the height of her fame in 1978.

Parton said in a recent interview on the Scott Mills & Chris Stark Show on Radio 5 Live the shoot would have to be “in good taste”.

Asked if it was true she might appear on the magazine’s cover again for her birthday, she said: "Yeah, I just might do it. If I can do it in good taste and we'll do it along with a really good interview inside. So, yeah, we've talked about it."

It’s not the first time the Jolene singer has spoken of the possibility.

She told 60 Minutes Australia earlier this year: "I don’t plan to retire. I just turned 74 and I plan to be on the cover of Playboy magazine again.

“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.”

She famously wore a black outfit with the famous bunny ears on the magazine’s cover in the late 70s, at the age of 32.

Asked if she'd wear the same outfit on the new cover, she responded: "Maybe! I could probably use it. Boobs are still the same.”
