Dolly Parton is a trendsetter, not only in the music world but on social media. The country icon has sparked one of 2020’s first viral challenges among the stars.
It all started Tuesday when Parton shared an Instagram post of four contrasting pictures of herself that would be appropriate profile photos for different social media platforms: LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.
For example, the Grammy winner labeled a picture of herself in a buttoned-up blazer as “LinkedIn,” tailor-made for the business networking service. On the other side of the spectrum, she labeled a picture herself dressed as a Playboy bunny as “Tinder,” a popular dating app notorious for riskier business.
“Get you a woman who can do it all,” Parton playfully captioned the meme with a wink emoji.

Celebrities are known for taking on numerous characters, so it was only a matter of time before they jumped on board and offered up their own hilarious versions.
Will Smith took the meme challenge a step further by selecting four different videos that correspond to social media platforms, including a shirtless clip of himself showering for Tinder.
“I’d swipe right,” he captioned the collage.
“Leave it to @dollyparton to be a #trendsetter! I can’t be left off the wagon,” Reba wrote. Parton responded, “Always beautiful.”
Janet Jackson joined in on the fun.
“Where @dollyparton leads, I follow,” Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote on Instagram.
Miley Cyrus took on her godmother’s challenge in character as Hannah Montana, the Disney Channel pop star she portrayed from 2006 to 2011.
“Wow. So versatile,” the Jonas Brothers wrote.
“I’d like to think I’m a well rounded guy,” Sterling K. Brown tweeted.
Mark Ruffalo tweeted, “Get a guy who will play them all.”
Ellen DeGeneres added, “When my agent asks if I can play different roles.”
For Instagram, the photo-sharing app, DeGeneres opted for an aesthetically pleasing picture with Michelle Obama, Jennifer Aniston, Jimmy Kimmel, Chance The Rapper and Sofía Vergara. And for Tinder, she picked a Halloween picture of herself dressed as “Cardi E,” complete with provocative pasties.

Here are more celebrities joining in on the fun:
“Yes ma’am, @dollyparton, whatever you say,” Jennifer Garner wrote, leading Parton to comment, “Perfect.”
When user @jean.simon commented he “would have switched the instagram and tinder pics,” Garner joked her dating profile may need some help.
“Shoot, is THAT why no one swipes?” she replied in a comment.
Garner’s choice of Tinder pic still seemed to catch the eye of “Bachelorette” alum Tyler Cameron, who let the actress know in a comment he’s “still swiping right.”
Kerry Washington added, “Inspired by @dollyparton, of course!”
Conan O’Brien asked, “Which Conan are you?”
Kristin Chenoweth asked “Which one are YOU today?”
“Shark Tank” star Barbara Corcoran added, “You can have it all, just not all at once!”
Bravo host Andy Cohen also participated, via a post to the Instagram page for his show “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
“Get you a guy who can do it all,” read the caption.
Terry Crews suggested he’ll show off his body on any social networking platform.
“Hey @dollyparton, I’m WORKIN’ out NINE TO FIVE!!!” he wrote, captioning four shirtless photos.
“Inspired by the iconic @dollyparton,” Julie Chen Moonves, longtime host of CBS’ “Big Brother,” also got in on the fun.
