Dolly, Saint Dolly,...
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Parton donated $1 million towards research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She said "I'm a very proud girl today to know I had anything at all to do with something that's going to help us through this crazy pandemic." Her donation funded the critical early stages of development of the Moderna vaccine. Parton strongly encouraged everyone to get vaccinated including penning a song with the lines "Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine/I'm begging of you please don't hesitate/Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine/'Cos once you're dead, then that's a bit too late."
Parton is known for having undergone considerable plastic surgery and imperative in keeping with her famous image. Parton has repeatedly joked about her physical image and surgeries, saying, "It takes a lot of money to look this cheap."
When asked about future plastic surgeries, she famously said, "If I see something sagging, bagging or dragging, I'll get it nipped, tucked or sucked." Parton's feminine escapism is acknowledged in her words, "Womanhood was a difficult thing to get a grip on in those hills, unless you were a man."
She has founded a number of charitable and philanthropic organizations, the chief among which is the Dollywood Foundation including Chasing Rainbows Museum, & Dolly Parton's Imagination Library.
She has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.
