Surely, you know many celebrities, who tell about their plastic surgeries from morning till night. They share all the details of the beauty procedures they take and even exchange the names of talented plastic surgeons. But the renowned singer Lionel Richie, who has already passed the 70-year-age mark, keeps extremely silent about plastic operations he repeatedly did (as it is rumored). So, what do we know about this man, who refuses to change?
He was born in the family of Lionel Brockman Richie Sr, an army systems analyst, and Alberta Foster, the elementary school principal. He grew up in Tuskegee, Alabama. Lionel was a Tuskegee Institute student when he formed his first R&B band. That was a base for the future super popular soul music group “Commodores”, formed in 1968, where he became the lead singer. In 1982 Lionel left the band to start performing solo. He achieved great success in this area, too. He sold more than 100 million copies of his albums and recorded numerous songs, including the charity single “We Are the World”, featuring Michael Jackson, which became a massive hit.
Richie, who has been judging on “American Idol” since 2018, looks much younger than his biological age. It seems that he hasn’t been changing at all since he turned 30. The fans remember young and flexible Richie from the music video “All Night Long”. The singer had a perfect body shape and was extremely slim and toned. Besides, he had an open wide smile and thick black hair, which reached his shoulders.
It’s unbelievable, but Richie looks young and fresh till now. That’s why his followers suspect him of making lots of plastic surgeries. The singer is rumored to undergo a facelift, botox injections, and even a hair transplant. Lionel, whose hairstyle became much shorter, but still remains lush, black, and wavy, is accused of having his hair transplant done.
The singer neither confirmed nor denied those rumors. He keeps silent about his workout plan as well. But Richie opened up, that he has a Heal app on his phone to consult a doctor every minute he needs.
The singer seems to know the youth’s resurrection secret. He remains active and good-looking at any age.
