The internet has enabled much of the world to both consume and share at an incredible rate, sometimes completely overwhelming the websites we use. And when it comes to hilarious, scandalous, and downright ridiculous celebrity news, people’s fingers move at a superhuman speed.
The term “breaking the internet” is used when something goes beyond viral, consuming every outlet and platform, almost instantly cementing the person or trend in history.
The most recent meltdown was caused by Dolly Parton's recreation of her 1978 Playboy cover! The 75-year-old icon got back into the bunny costume and did a new photo shoot. She said it was a surprise for her husband's 79ths birthday, as he had loved the original cover. Parton joked about how she's changed since 1978: "I was kind of a little butterball in that one, well I'm string cheese now. But he'll probably think I'm cream cheese - I hope!"
