Bette Midler Back 2 Broadway

January 8th, 2013

Even though she just turned 67,  old enough  to “retire,” ask yourself, which would you rather do:  star on Broadway, or be “retired?

She’ll play legendary agent Sue Mengers in “I’ll Eat You Last,”  which opens in April.

And her new movie, “Parental Guidance, ” with Billy Crystal ,  is taking in significant box office.

Age?  Smage!

On The (Boomer) Red Carpet

October 15th, 2012

What the hell happened to Reba McEntire’s face?  Plastic surgery run amok!

On the other hand, Cicely Tyson is stunning at 78, and if she’s had surgery, she got the right kind.

Wanda Jackson Redux: Confidence Trumps Age

October 5th, 2012

@20 Wanda Jackson sang w/  Elvis.  @ 74 she’s dueting w/ Chris Isaak.

Tight  pants, high heels, teased up hair. Her confidence trumps a weakend voice.

24 or 74, no difference.

 

Happy Birthday, Susan Sarandon

October 4th, 2012

 

Happy birthday, Susan Sarandon, 66 today, and she looks great enough for The Huffington Post to feature the  “Sarandon Style Evolutions” with pics from 1975 (when she was 29) to today.

 

Compare that to People mags Sept. 24th “Double Special Issue” which featured “Chic at Every Age”–four pages with a woman of every age, starting with 20 (Selena Gomez) thru the 30’s (Jessica Biel) to 45 ((Nicole Kidman) all the way up to 58, (Christie Brinkley) and 59 (Kathie Lee Gifford,) and then, and then… it stops.

 

To People, 60 is so old that you can’t even be chic, yet Huff-Po thinks 66 is chic enough to give you star billing in the “Style” section, documenting your entire adult fashion life in 45 photos.

 

If an  editor is really young, 66 is ancient.  If the editor is 45, 66 is in the middle, and if the editor is 66 (the age of the oldest baby boomer) 66 is “normal.”

So there.

Just Say No…To Retirement
