Barry Manilow is now 90% fillers, veneers and badly lifted skin

The shake-and-go wig is even more horrifying.

OMG I heard him sing All I want for Chirstmas on the NYC tree lighting?? He was Terrible.

The lip synching was the worst I've ever seen. Every crack head drag queen in the worst skid row bar has done a better job. Is this the level of entertainment that the major networks are satisfied with now? Millions of dollars in technology and rehearsal and tech crews and this is the result? Shame.

On the bright side, no matter who he runs into he always looks surprised and happy to see them!

I have nothing against Barry don't get me wrong. He's a major talent and created the power ballad. I'm also glad he's still with us and making music. It's the way they presented him that bothers me.

Surely he could find a more natural looking wig. Maybe he's half-blind and doesn't realise how bad it looks.

by Anonymousreply 23December 1, 2023 5:59 AM

For 80 I think he looks fine. Whether he had work done or didn't, he was gonna look like shit at 80. We all will. Just be glad you made it, Barry! Mwah!!

I’d fuck him……

I am not an ageist but DAMN. She needs to go away.

Nothing about that “performance” was good. Nothing.

I understand nostalgia, but Jesus fuck, she looks like a villain from a Sid & Marty Kroft show. That wig.

That skin.


Can you imagine his lover’s horror when he wakes up next to a Barry without the three hours of beauty preparation?!

That’s what you call narcissism to the extreme.

Exactly. I admire more the performers who recognize that it's time to turn a page and so something else and/or step out of the realm of performance. Going out in a high note is admirable, performing when you look and sound like a fucking ghoul is pure ego.

With age should come some right to doing what you please and doing it for your own enjoyment, not to please others. But goddamn, when you step in a stage in front of thousands or millions, have a shred of respect for people who knew you at your best. Sing a few lines of one song for sentimentality's sake if you must, but sing it yourself, there's no shame in that, there's even a poignance if not beauty to showing how an old voice sounds and doesn't sound like it's younger self. But FFS, do it without a huge orchestra of musicians and technicians and wig stylists and surgeons and mortuary science majors.

Recognize what you can and can't do, don't ask old fans and people who've ni fucking idea who you are to indulge you in some ghoulish, garish display.

It's hard to age and be famous. This anecdote from the new Elizabeth Taylor biography made me think a lot of him:

Taylor was shocked that so many of her famous friends and acquaintances were reluctant to help Aids sufferers [in the 1980s], even if all she asked was that they attend a fundraiser. When Barry Manilow agreed to perform at one, she burst into tears because he was the only musician who had said yes.
