What’s Age Got To Do With It

23 05 2008

There is no doubt in my mind that many ‘forgotten’ old artists are still full of it. Nowadays, when the media is being saturated with Amy Winehouse, Rihanna, Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe, American Idols and the celebrity wannabes, you rarely remember the great stars of yesteryears. It seems there is call-for-action among the living-dead artists to resurrect and paraphrase Tina Turner’s greatest hit “What’s age got to do with it.” Donna Summer just dropped a chart climbing hit after 17 years, Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones staged a come back after 19 years, and ‘leggy’ Tina Turner hit the road for concert tours after 9 years. What do these ‘old bags’ have in common? There are mega-stars of 70s – 80s who refused to be forgotten or be put into the back burner. And above up they all still look superb.


I suppose the recent Tina Turner’s performance with Beyonce at the Grammy must have given the old lady needed tonic that bounced her back to life. She really did great on that live performance [but I miss her famous legs, I’m tired of Beyonce’s]. As for Harrison Ford, he had series of other movies in the 90s but none was as stellar as the Indiana Jones series which made him an household name. So, it is a very wise decision to continue the Indiana Jones saga. In the past few years, the disco diva, Donna Summer, released some ‘clubland tracks’ which never hit off into the main stream. This time, she appears to be coming out strong and she is so gorgeous too [in above pic], isn’t she? That could be the transcending factor.


Now, I am just wondering about my girl, Diana Ross; what is she up to lately? Unfortunately, the last time she made major headlines was about getting arrested for ‘drunk driving’. What about Michael Douglass? He had made many good movies but none of them is as spectacular as “Romancing the Stone.” I hope he’s been staying out of trouble. I’m not too thrill about recent comment he made in reference to the World Ambassador of Goodwill, Angelina Jolie, and her adopted kids – Although he later apologized.


Michael Douglass, Diana Ross, Harrison Ford, Donna Summer, and Tina Turner had once reached their heydays in the same era. Seeing their peers pulling it off big in this 21st century should inspire Diana Ross and Mike Douglass to follow suite; except the two have been sentenced to self-prophesied prison-of-no-return. Let’s pray for them and wish them luck.
