Dolly Parton Gets Green Light To Grace Cover Of Playboy, Credited With Helping Cure COVID


It looks like Dolly Parton's goal of being on the cover of Playboy magazine to mark her 75th birthday in January might be happening. The icon has talked about doing this for a while, and now Playboy is on board, according to TMZ. Dolly previously graced the magazine's cover back in October of 1978 at the age of 32.

In other Dolly news, you may recall that she donated $1 million to Vanderbilt University back in March to help with finding a cure for COVID-19. Well, her investment has paid off because the University was involved in Biotech firm Moderna's vaccine trials and as of this week, the company has announced its vaccine has shown nearly 95% efficacy. In fact, Dolly has been listed in the acknowledgements of the New England Journal of Medicine report about Moderna’s new therapy.

One fan commented on Twitter, “Dolly Parton donated $1 million to Vanderbilt for vaccine research. Vanderbilt researchers were involved in the Moderna trials. Ergo, Dolly Parton helped cure Covid."
