Lionel Richie recently revealed his secret to looking young in reply to online trolls who claimed he got cosmetic treatments to look younger.
Netizens criticised the Stuck On You singer after he performed at King Charles III’s coronation. Twitter users slammed the musician, calling him “odd and fake” and accusing him of having plastic surgery to look younger.
“WTF was his plastic surgeon doing?” one person tweeted. “Training or trying out new things?”
Richie reacted to rumors that he had plastic surgery with the Daily Mail, explaining that he would never choose cosmetic procedure because it may go tragically wrong. “Plastic surgery locks you in for a year [to heal], and after that, you can’t go naturally; you’re stuck there… You try to go back and reset, but you can’t.”
The Hello singer revealed the key to his age-defying appearance, stating that he prioritizes cardio, water intake, and adequate sleep. He also stated that he avoids red meat.
Richie is believed to be close to King Charles III, having worked for the erstwhile Prince’s Trust with him. The singer then revealed their joke regarding his youthful appearance. He claims that the King has often asked him about the secret to aging properly, and Richie proposes that he join Hollywood.
