Good Genes or Good Docs?

Sade is a smooth operator!

Here's the 25-year-old soul singer back in 1984 (left) -- and 25 years later, the 50 year-old version at some event in NYC this week (right).

The sweetest taboo, indeed.

Who cares about this bs? People should age gracefully, and learn what matters in life. For a good blog, go to:

Wow ! She's alive ! Finally some news about her. She's one of the sexiest women in the world. Can't wait to hear the new music and hope for a tour. Been a long time since "Lover's Rock". But I'm sure the new CD will be worth the wait. Best concert I ever saw was her "Lover's Rock" tour with India Arie at the Arts Center in NJ.

My wife and I became big fans of hers back in 1984 while first dating and always look forward to her new releases and eventual concert tours. The last Lovers Rock concert in 2001, in Irvine under the stars was very special and memorable to us. I hope she schedules for the same venue around the same time in the summer. Sade is one of the classiest woman singers that is blessed with a unique sultry voice. Her dance moves match her personality and singing style that look oh so real and natural. Her looks match the inside of this special talented person, and will hold for many decades.

T, sade has a 13 year old daughter. Credit to her for holding it down, she hasn't had any plastic surgery. It is a true fact black dosen't crack. I'm black and 47, no one believe's me, everyone thinks i'm 30, i have 2 children 19 and 13 and have kept my size 4 figure, and u don't have to be a celebrity to maintain.

Darker skin is protected from sun damage. Light-skinned people who aren't sun-worshippers or who routinely have used protection (sunscreen), especially since childhood, probably age just as gracefully... and are at much less risk for skin cancer. But definitely having more of the protective skin pigment melanin from a lucky choice of ancestors is quite helpful (we all have it except albinos, it's just a matter of quantity).

She probably gets botox'd but I doubt she's had anything else done. By the way, it's not so unusual for a 50 year old woman to be relatively free of wrinkles. It's even possible for white women, all you need to do is stay out of the sun.

I was lucky enough to see her up close in person and truly photos don't do her justice. She is amazingly beautiful and other-worldly looking.
You can tell if someone has work done by looking at their necks typically (think Susan Lucci). The neck and hands are areas where it is extremely difficult to hide age. Her neck looks pretty much the same as the 25 year old photo.
