Dolly Parton has joined TikTok.

The 75-year-old country legend shared a motivational message for her fans when she made her debut on the video-sharing app on Sunday (26.09.21).

Wearing a bright yellow top with matching blue and yellow flared trousers, the ‘9 to 5’ singer said in her first clip: "Why hello, I guess I'm on TikTok! I just dropped in to say that it will be OK."

Dolly then began singing to her fans, telling them: "If I can do it, so can you ... I believe in you."

Dolly’s account, @itsdollyparton, already has over 680,000 followers and one million likes, and fans were thrilled to see her join the platform.

One proclaimed: "This cured my acne, paid off my debt, healed my psoriasis and fed my soul.”


Meanwhile, the ‘Jolene’ singer recently claimed she doesn’t splurge her fortune on unnecessary luxuries.

She said: "I really like to earn money, and I love to spend it too. But I spend it on things that I feel that's needed.

"I'm not the kind of person that will go out and spend, like, three or four thousand dollars on a coat or one outfit."

Dolly noted when she does decide to spend her hard-earned money, it usually goes on her stage costumes and beloved wigs.

She pondered: "I don't even know how many wigs I have - I wear one almost every day, so I must have at least 365."

And while her public appearance might sometimes suggest otherwise, the veteran singer was keen to point out she doesn't feel like a "material girl".

She explained: "I know I look like a material girl, but I'm really not. I've got clothes that I've worn for years.

"I always think of my daddy or my mama... they could have fed a family of 12 on what I would pay for a coat."
