Love you Lionel! Absolute legend!!

I love Lionel Ritchie. Ppl need to leave Prince alone abt We Are The World. Damn. Shut up already. Seriously. He did things his way--thank God. He contributed to the project with Tears in Your Eyes.. Not everyone needs to be in a room with 100 artists. He was his own person. He was a genius. Let it be.

I went to his concert last year and he sounded, GREAT!! He sounded just like he does on the radio. He will be back here July 2019...I will be there, again!!!

Botox shots work on the face. Pity it's too risky to inject the neck.

Damn ! no wrinkles at 70 ? He must have gone  vaginal rejuvenation on his face to get rid of the wrinkles.

70 is the new 50 for some like Lionel who look great and have energy. I met senator Romney of Utah last Friday and he is 72 and he looks amazing !! Aging can be great if you take care of yourself. Johnny Mathis is 83 and l went to his concert in NYC, and not only does he sound great but he looks much younger than his years. Bless you all because you inspire.

If surgery and botox made Lionel look this good then who cares, more power to him! He chose not to become a druggie and a alcoholic as so many musicians do over the course of their careers,so his appearance is understably younger surgery or not! I guess his voice had surgery too because he does"nt sing or talk like a 70 year old man either!

Oh stop making excuses Lionel. We all know Prince and MJ didn't liked each other. The part that MJ-Huey Lewis sang was meant for MJ and Prince showing that their fued has ended but Prince had other plans...

I know I'm in the minority with this but 'Love Will Find A Way' is my fave Lionel Richie track... I just like the feel of that song for some reason
Sally Hu (1 month ago)
He looks great for any age. Truthfully, he looks better now than in the 70s. He had his jaws/chin and teeth worked on ... excellent work. He used to have serious overbite, which detracts from his looks. He looks to be a good human being regardless.

He's had some work done. More than one procedure on his eyes for instance. Probably a forehead lift. All his hair is dyed of course and he's had some dental work done. It's not all natty kids.

You're not allowed to age in Hollywood. You have to act and look at least 10yrs younger. It pays well. He's in the 300 million bracket. Go head Lionel.

He has SO many stories to tell. I'd could sit and listen to him tell them forever. And, on a side note, how come Madonna wasn't in We are the World, either? I've always wondered that.

This is the result of never doing drugs, smoking or drinking. His mind and reflexes are still sharp like he's still in his 20's. He obviously had facial surgery but looks great for 70

@Daren Sky Baby Damn, I guess I should have been more specific. Now I'm wondering if Simbalina thought I was talking about the Royal family. Just to clarify, I was talking about Prince the artist.
