'I'm always in glam!': Dolly Parton, 74, is not distancing herself from makeup amid coronavirus lockdown
“I always say that the only way I'd be caught without makeup is if a radio fell into the bathtub and electrocuted me"
Like most of us, Dolly Parton is also following social distancing measures while staying at home, but it seems she is not distancing herself from her trademark makeup amid the coronavirus lockdown. The 74-year-old recently opened up with PEOPLE and shared how she is quarantining at her Nashville mansion.
During the interview, Parton revealed that she is "always glam" even during self-isolation. “I'm always in glam! I always say that the only way I'd be caught without makeup is if a radio fell into the bathtub and electrocuted me,” the ‘I Will Always Love You’ singer told the magazine on Thursday, April 23.
According to reports, the nine-time Grammy winner does her makeup on her own, while her hair and costume supplies are taken care of by Cheryl Riddle and Steve Summer respectively.
Parton also urged people to "keep the faith" in these testing times as she is also doing the same. “[I’m] following all the social distancing rules, living on faith. I’m still working like always, trying to bring some light anywhere that I can.
“God is looking out for us. We will come out on the other side of this, and we’re all going to be better people for it. Take care of each other from afar and continue to send love to your friends, family, and everyone suffering,” she added.
The ‘Islands in the Stream’ singer has curated an 'At Home Together' playlist on Spotify, which features 46 songs - 16 of which are her own, to cheer up the people feeling low during the COVID-19 pandemic. ‘At Home Together’ is a part of the music streaming platform’s newly released hub called ‘Listening Together’, which includes two new guest-curated shelves, ‘Together’ and ‘In Case You Missed It’.
This comes soon after A&E documentary on the music legend, 'Biography: Dolly', released on April 12, and showed her fans a behind-the-scenes look at the music diva's image and legacy. Many fans were inspired by her rags-to-riches story, and plenty more were surprised by her enduring contributions to the entertainment industry that had slipped between the cracks of music history.
The documentary left her fans with a lot of praise for the country icon as one said, “Can this woman get any sweeter than she already is? Apparently, she can!" Another person commented: “I had no idea Dolly freaking Parton did the song that I have loved Whitney Houston for all my life. Oh, my days!" while the third one chimed, “Wow, I never realized the song 'Jolene' came from such a heartbreaking place."
Last month, Parton also appeared on '60 Minutes Australia' and said that she doesn’t plan on ever retiring from music. During her appearance on the show, she also expressed her desire to pose again for Playboy for her 75th birthday.
The ‘9 to 5’ singer first appeared on the magazine’s cover in 1978 when she was 32-year-old. “I don’t plan to retire. I just turned 74 and I plan to be on the cover of Playboy Magazine again,” she said, adding that recreating the Playboy look would be such a hoot.
