Lionel Richie says səx is responsible for his good looks at 73, not plastic surgery
Grammy award-winning American singer, Lionel Richie, has revealed the secret behind his ‘ageless’ look at the age of 73.
He made the revelation in response to the negative comments about his appearance following his performance at King Charles III’s coronation on Saturday, May 6.
Rather than commenting on his outstanding perfomance, netizens took to social media to accuse him of undergoing plastic surgery to maintain his youthful look.
A tweep wrote, “Lionel Richie’s face looks more fake than the clay fan the blind woman was sculpting in his ‘Hello’ video!”
“Lionel Richie has really messed up his face …. why do these people do that to themselves? They never look any younger they just look odd,” another added.
A third person tweeted alongside a photo of Richie performing on stage, “WTF was his plastic surgeon doing? Training or experimenting with new stuff? I would hope Lionel Richie didn’t pay for that new face.”
In an apparent reaction to the critics, the 73-year-old musician debunked reports of going under the knife to enhance his physical appearance, stating that “that s—t goes wrong!”
He further credited his youthful appearance to sleep, sweat, sex, and not eating too much red meat.
“I know it’s real boring. [Sex] will work also and it’s good for your heart,” the iconic singer, who has been dating 33-year-old model Lisa Parigi for more than a decade, added.
