Evil.

But while we're at it, she looks a bit like a Kylie/Bea Arthur cross-bred hybrid here...

The folks on the Velvet Rope live for stuff like this.

I know people get old, but this is just sad. What happened to her fabulousness? She was untouchable in the 80's--nobody came close with the different looks, personas, and musical styles (maybe Madonna, but not nearly as edgy until the 90's). Check Eurythmics SAVAGE video album or her solo DIVA video album, both directed by the ever-present Sophie Muller from 1988, and you'll see what I mean.

Unfortunately, she hasn't excited me with her music in 1 1/2 decades, DIVA (her first solo effort-1991!) being the last truly great thing she's done. MEDUSA=uninspiring covers, PEACE=sleepy, and BARE=bland. Weirdly, I was standing in a K-Mart (of all places) last year, and heard some new song of hers that didn't sound half bad. Must have been from that upcoming album that's been promised for nearly a year now.

Certainly her kids are getting old enough to babysit themselves.

I'm so mean. It's just a lousy pic. Really, she is still fucking gawjus! I will post plenty of beeyooteefull pics of her when her album comes out (or sooner).

Chris, I started this blog because I wrote so much on Velvet Rope that I felt I was wasting the writing and need to capture it. (Sounds bit vain, eh?!) But I am a Velvet Vet!

Count, we are for once not on the same page re Annie. I have never tired of her, though I too thought Peace was somewhat weak. I love Medusa, and Bare has some transcendent moments mixed with some meh moments.

Guess I should clarify that those albums are not ALL bad, just a bit adult contemporary, and at times she sounds very uncomfortable when trying to remain hip. Even Dave Stewart couldn't make Peace more enjoyable after all that time apart.
