Dolly Parton gave an interview to 60 Minutes Australia this weekend, and during the sit-down shared a goal that might surprise fans of the 74-year-old country music star.

“I don’t plan to retire, I just turned 74,” Parton told reporter Tom Steinfort. “And I plan to be on the cover of Playboy magazine again. I did Playboy magazine years ago, I thought it would 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 wear the same outfit she replied, “Maybe. I could probably use it. Boobs are still the same.”

The “Jolene” singer first did Playboy in 1978 but did not appear nude in the magazine — though she did bare all in a more PG sense.

“I always wanted to wear makeup,” she told the magazine at the time. “I’d paint my lips and see there wasn’t nothing Daddy could do. He couldn’t rub that off. It stained your lips and those little bitty bottles [were] just perfect to go around your lip line. Then I would do that and I would blot it off and Daddy, he’d say, ‘Come here get that lipstick off you!’ I’d say, real calm, ‘It’s my natural color, Daddy.’ It’s so bull. When we wanted eyebrows, we’d get burnt matches ... you could wet them and make your little eyebrows and whatever.”

Now, 42 years later, Parton is still famous for her looks, telling 60 Minutes Australia that it’s all about, “good lighting, good makeup and good doctors. And a good attitude don’t hurt any either.”

She added, “The good part about me though, I have my own look. I’m kind of cartoonish and cartoons don’t really age that much. Even when I’m 90 I’ll still probably look about the same way, just a little thicker makeup, bigger hair.

“I have young boys still whistling at me,” she said elsewhere in the interview of how she’s treated differently now. “I say I’m married but I ain’t dead and I ain’t blind.”

When Steinfort asked her if she’d ever consider running for president, the quick-witted songwriter said with a laugh, “I think we’ve had enough boobs in the White House.”
