Barry Manilow

Good Genes or Good Docs?

2/21/2010 2:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like Barry Manilow has made it.

Barry Manilow
Here's the 30-year-old back in 1973 (left) -- and 36 years later, the 66-year-old version at an event in Hollywood late last year (right).

Could it be magic?

You really need a third option on these things. My vote is for bad docs or medical malpractice.

huh    

Let's do the math:

TMZ: "Here's the 30 year old back in 1973"

and...

"26 years later, the 66 year old version."

30+26=56, not 66.

So... which is it?

You're slipping, in a big way.

Good docs? How about money hungry docs? The man can no longer smile and he is missing his upper lip. Such a shame. Barry ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!

Poor Barry. His docs made him look like Madame. I bet Wayland Flowers is nearby (and yes, I know he's dead...)

Q    

Dude looks like he will melt at any moment---lost his smile, and the ability to show feeling with his face and mouth...poor thing, you never know when he's happy anymore, unless you just watch his eyes try to light up. He's starting to look really ethnic, like when his real name was Manilowski or was it Pincus?

ah, who cares, dude looks really eastern european like he just got here, and the only English he knows is McDonalds English, walking the streets of NYC saying outloud "fries, coke, big mac" "fries, coke, big mac".

Agreed with above post - you need a 3rd option of "Bad Docs"

Barry Manilow is a great humanitarian. I live in the Coachella Valley where he has a home and he's been incredibly generous with money and time to various local charities.

He looks like a bobble head doll. Met him three years ago and he was as nice as could be. Signed an autograph for my piano playin' nephew and spoke to us as if he were just a normal person. I've never been a big fan of his type of music, (I rock out), but I do respect what he has done musically throughout the years. He still looks like a bobble head doll.

He looks like an Elderly Jewish Woman. Or better yet, a retired lesbian gym teacher. He's a bitter queen and it shows all over his plastic face

Thanks Barry! Btw, all the 'gay bathhouse' stories are nonsense. Leave him be.

"Manilow had this to say about the death of Michael Jackson: "It doesn't seem possible. How could Michael Jackson not be with us? This experience is surreal. He was one of the most gifted and original talents the world has ever known. He inspired a generation of young people and amazed the rest of the world. There has never been anyone like him. There will never be another Michael Jackson. I can't wrap my mind around this terrible news."
