Sade

Good Genes or Good Docs?

1/3/2010 9:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sade is a smooth operator!

Sade
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.

I agree with most of the posters here. I am a white woman who is totally envious of how well black women age. They NEVER look as old as we do!

She's beautiful. She's older than Courtney Love and yet looks a lot younger. I guess Courtney being a crackhead and rough house pill popping drunk aged her faster. As far as Madonna, forget about it. I love her but she looks plastic and testosterone he-manly. Only thing she's missing is a mustache and beard. Madonna could benchpress all four of her kids with one arm. Like Curlie from the 3 Stooges would say; rrrruff, rrrrruff.

If you don't smoke, or drink and stay out of the sun you will age gracefully, whether you are white or black.

True, but white women still age faster. Madonna is proof of that. She's white as Casper, doesn't drink and I'm sure she doesn't smoke. She looks great physically but her face looks every day of its 50+ years. Melanie Griffith and Sharon Stone are the same way. Women of colour just age differently. They don't get the deep wrinkles, crow's feet and smile lines white women get. Not saying white women over age 50 aren't beautiful too, because some are. However, they usually look their age. Sade is 50 and she still looks 30.

6. Sade is a beautiful woman. She has stayed the same size like Madonna, but unlike Madonna, she doesn't look severe. Can't wait for the new CD and concert.

Fibb you Idiot, what they're saying is that people with darker skin does'nt age as rapidly as people with lighter skin. And if you don't believe it just look at hollywood and compare celebs with dark complexions to celebs with light complwexions and you will see the difference. or just look at Lindsay Lohan, Amy whinehouse just to name a few.

By the way, Sade's mother is/was white.
We may be resistant to sun damage but certainly not immune. A lot of Scandinavian older women look good for their age, conversely a lot of African women who have been overly exposed look weathered.
I met a 45 y/o white woman in a karaoke bar a few weeks ago... she thought I was 30 and I thought she was 35 tops.

She looks very good...She has taken care of herself...And for those who want to make note that she has aged?? Of course she has aged but very slowly, that's the point...

And yes, it has a lot to do with her black genes and again taking care of herself..There is no point in comparing her to Madonna...Madonna has on so much make up until we really dont know what she really looks like...

sade is otherworldly,and she's an artist at heart.she's not at all apart of the frivolous tabloid trash machine many seek to be apart of to keep their names "on top".she looks like an african queen unscathed by time,and the perceptions of what beauty is, she's a vision of a true goddess.she's comfortable with herself and she's not superficial,nor is she starving for the lime light,like most of these self righteous,plastic,run of the mill"entertainers" do,she has discernible talent that speaks for itself.when you are grounded and true to yourself,you don't carry a world of other people's bull**** on your shoulders,it's obvious sade adu is not worried about keeping up with the kardashians,jones,smiths,jenkins or who ever else think the world revolves around them.she's on a level that only a few have reached,a level of realism and honesty with ones self that comes from being wise,it's obvious that TMZ would insinuate that she had cosmetic surgery,so what if she did? she's not gloating about it on reality shows and news magazine shows or prancing around on TMZ dodging asinine questions,an if she had cosmetic adjusments,her doctor's name must be GOD or NATURE,to say she looks like how sade has always look,like herself.
