At 73, Dolly Parton is making more headlines than ever. This time, she shocked fans by revealing she has several hidden tattoos on her body.

During a recent interview with Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts, the iconic entertainer shared that she has multiple flower and butterfly tattoos.

“I got them to cover scars or things,” Parton explained. “If I have to get a scar for any reason, I never can kind of get rid of that purple look. So I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to kind of decorate these with some flowers or little butterflies or whatever.’”

Parton’s interview was part of the ABC News special, Dolly Parton: Here She Comes Again!, which aired last week prior to The 53rd Annual CMA Awards where she was a special guest host alongside Reba McEntire and Carrie Underwood.

Soon, Parton’s fans can tune into Heartstrings, eight-episode Netflix series based on her music. The much-anticipated anthology debuts November 22.
