She looks beautiful. I loved everything she did for Fame and Flashdance. She's an ICON.

All things considered, she's aged well.

I used to have such a crush on her.

I'd still ask her for her autograph.

She'll always be a star to me.

Irene is a super nice lady! I met her once a couple of years ago at a Jazz bar. She was very nice and even hung out with me for a glass of wine. I wish her well.

True story,
I worked for an assisted living facility in Florida 10 yrs ago and this old woman had her walls papered with pics of this Irene Cara chick. Turns out it was her niece and she followed her career really closely. The girl never visited her old assed aunt though.

"Looking Famous"? Who writes this crap? She looks great for 49. But Looks Famous? What is that?
Someone needs rehab.

#1 how is this chick an Icon? She sang one song for a movie and never had another hit. She looks older than 49. If she was 65-70 I'd say she aged well.

Hey Ashana, at least do some background checking before you start spewing your useless garbage. Irene Cara had 6 top 40 hits, 3 of them top 10, and 1 #1 song - which also got her an Academy Award. Let's see a picture of you so I can dump all over it. Irene probably looks 10X better than you no matter what age you are.
