Parton recently received plenty of well-deserved attention, but not for her music. The 75-year-old shared a video of her getting her COVID-19 vaccine, urging others to do the same.
“We all want to get back to normal, whatever that is, and that would be a great shot in the arm, wouldn’t it, to get back to that,” she said. “I just wanted to encourage everybody, because the sooner we get to feeling better, the sooner we are gong to get back to being normal. I just want to say to all of you cowards out there, don’t be such a chicken squat. Get out there and get your shot.”
Parton has already accomplished more in her life and career than almost any other artist, but she isn’t even close to considering retirement yet.
“Well I plan to be around a lot longer,” Parton said (via WKRN). “I have no plans of slowing down because the number says I should. I don’t pay attention to that. I wake up with new dreams every day. I try to make the most of every year that I’ve lived. I’ve been doing that since I was little. I’ll be doing it until I keel over. Hopefully that won’t be anytime soon.”
