AGING HAPPENS TO EVERYONE . . . EXCEPT CHER

REMEMBER MY HIT SONG 
'IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME'? 
That was irony. There was no "if." 
Paul Smith/Featureflash
Bearing no resemblance whatsoever to a 66-year-old woman, the one and only Cher is back and poised to sweep the charts with a new dance-ready single.

The inimitable diva, who is two-parts Cherokee, two-parts Armenian and two-parts wax, has had to push up the release date of "Woman's World" thanks to this new-fangled thingamajiggie called the Interweb. Or something. 

Anyway, a version of the song was leaked and Cher said, "Oh what the hell, you silly bitches," and went ahead and released it early. It's an infectious, eclectic, bumping dance beat that just screams Club Anthem. Have a listen here at Woman's World. Yep. She looks 40, she sounds 30 and she acts 20. God, I love this woman.

On the flipside of the Incredible Older Women coin, we have Goldie Hawn, who does look her age. Click on Before sunscreen was invented.

Yes, her skin looks a bit lizardy, but what I love about that is that THIS IS WHAT 67-YEAR-OLDS ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE! Her face is literally flipping Hollywood a giant freckled bird: "Eff you, plastic mongers! This is my face! Deal with it!"
Goldie celebrated her birthday on Wednesday, and rather than mark it with a trip to the cosmetic surgeon's office, she instead hit the streets for a run, fit and curvy in her gym gear and without a drop of spackle. She looks 60, she acts 40 and she thinks 20. God, I love this woman. Happy birthday, sunshine.
