Dolly Parton lived up to her "Iron Butterfly" nickname when she rocked up to The Tonight Show this week in a sequined midi dress and strong legs for days.
The singer, now 76, isn't a huge fan of the gym, but she likes to do "rejoicing exercises."
While Dolly has done lots of different diets in the past, these days, she says she sticks to quick, healthy meals with a focus on moderation.
Dolly Parton knows the power of some serious sparkle, and she doesn’t shy away from shining bright like a diamond on the regular. Well, she just went on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and, naturally, the 76-year-old cranked up the wattage.
The country star donned a rainbow, sequined midi dress for the event, showing off some seriously strong legs in the process. Dolly paired her look with bright red, sequined open-toed pumps, because she's Dolly Parton. Here's a look at the iconic singer and those toned legs:
Of course, Dolly is all about bringing it in the fashion department—especially over the last few months. There was this all-leather catsuit she wore when she was being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame:
And this “casual” jeans and black shirt combo:
While Dolly is definitely super healthy and strong, she’s been more than clear that she’s not into going to the gym. She told WSJ Magazine last year that exercising isn’t really her thing. “I’m not big on going to the gym…and I’m particular about who I sweat with,” she shared.
She does get her heart rate up, though. “I create my own rejoicing exercises,” Dolly told WSJ. If you're confused, don't worry, because Dolly explained what that means: “I grew up in the Pentecostal church where we used to do a lot of shouting and jumping around. I keep my motor running in the mornings when I just shout through the house praising the Lord.”
Oh, BTW: Dolly is far from lazy. She told WSJ that she gets up around 3 a.m., noting, “I just love the wee hours.”
“I pray every day that God will put all the right things, all the right people in my life, and take all the wrong things, all the wrong people out, and guide me,” she continued. “Then I figure out what I want to wear and what I want to accomplish…and I have my cup of ambition.”
Dolly revealed in her documentary, Dolly Parton: The Queen of Country, that she didn't always have the healthiest practices when it came to food. Dolly says she would do all kinds of diets that would work temporarily before having to "start all over again," per The Express. Now, she tries to focus on “quick and easy” meals at home. “I usually try to keep some homemade egg salad around,” she told WSJ. “Through the week I’ll eat things like egg salad on toast with tomato, and sometimes I’ll have a bagel with cream cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes.”
She also tends to follow a low-carb diet during the week and “eat anything I want on the weekends,” while focusing on moderation.
Keep on doing you, Dolly!
