That has to be the funniest story I have ever heard or is it Lionel Richie knows how to tell great stories about Stevie Wonder driving his car in reverse. So obviously Stevie knew knew his driveway very well and how far he could actually go in reverse.

LR is turning 70 years old in a couple months. Probably had some plastic surgery but whatever, he looks good for his age.

I agree that he probably had a face lift as he looks a little different now and not in a natural way.

Klara Stern (3 months ago)
there might also be some plastic surgery.. and no.. no judgement.. I don't think that's easy... so if someone wants to go that route: as for everything: as long as you don't hurt another being and it makes you happy -> go for it

Lionel look great!!!!
Boono (3 months ago)
is this person a transgender?
Silver P (2 months ago)
This "person" is the living legend and talent, Lionel Ritchie. He is a man and a father. Either you do bad jokes and are transphobic or you actually believe every famous person is transgender. Lionel is a talented musician/singer-song writer look up his hits and stop your stupidity. 😒

Bedroom Beethovens (3 months ago)
I miss Simon Cowell. There are no more negative comments from the judges and it makes it less special when 'everyone is brilliant'. Lionel needs to be replaced.
Brian Y (2 months ago)
Apparently American Idol is going to be cancelled again as the ratings are so low
Swann (3 months ago)
Bedroom Beethovens I feel like up to America’s vote, Katy and Luke are honest about what needs work, and they say it constructively. Especially Katy. I remember thinking about a contestant « Damn, it’s American Idol, not American Psycho », and sure enough 5 minutes later the girl was cut, Katy telling her it wasn’t American Clown lol I also think they have to find the right balance between honesty and not shitting on a kid’s dream. The Voice is much, much worse. They literally tell kids they have an amazing voice and are the best they’ve ever seen, that their performance was amazing, when it was the worst we’ve ever seen on the show. The Voice is so fake and dripping with congratulations Jimmy Fallon should host it.

I'd love to see someone convince Stevie he was white the whole time.
Anyrson Pierre (2 months ago)
Let's say you convince him that He is white, What would that change?? I am just curious. Being who you are is much great than the body your energy lives in, And he is one of the best examples.

@BenSCR No that's not a question for his family. You know as well as I do that no baby would be aware at such a young age of whether or not they are Black or White, don't try to sidestep the question by playing dumb!
BenSCR (3 months ago)
@Genevieve Marie That's a question you would have to ask him or his family.
Genevieve Marie (3 months ago)
@BenSCR So if he was blind as a baby, how could he possibly have a sense of whether he was Black or White?

Don't you Love it how celebrities call it a WORLD tour and then conveniently leave out half the countries in Asia 😂 Call it your 'idea of the world' tour instead 😂😂😂
Frankie McGill (3 months ago)
Taytay Queen You have a bizarre way of expressing what you supposedly don’t care about. I’d hate to see how you freak out if you do care.
Taytay Queen (3 months ago)
Frankie McGill You should use your talent to write dialogue for Game of Thrones, and I mean that as a compliment. Since it's clear you won't change my mind and I won't change yours, let's just move on 😂 like I said, thrice already, its not that deep.
Frankie McGill (3 months ago)
Taytay Queen This is a strange way to be done with a conversation. Weren’t you so offended by me that you mercifully threatened to stop talking? You can try to white wash your idiotic “observations” all you want. Your comments are fuelled by jealousy and resentment, you reek of it. You are as transparent as that soggy tissue you’re crying into.
Taytay Queen (3 months ago)
Frankie McGill Must be nice to live with a mindset that concludes a lighthearted observation stems from a jealousy of the west. Says more about your interpretation of the world than it does about me. Honestly. When I said the ' world isn't just the West ' I meant it in literal sense, that's all. :)
Frankie McGill (3 months ago)
Taytay Queen “The world isn’t just the west” ring a bell? Save your passive aggressive jealousy for someone who cares. The issue here is that I told you it’s a marketing strategy and you want to talk about the logic behind it like it’s important somehow. It’s not. Unless you want to take it personally.
