Well yea, R1 EVERY photo that is published is photoshoped to some degree.
Her hands are so...supple.
What did Madonna do that was so wrong?
Debbie's carried extra weight since 1982, which kept her hands plumped.
Heroin also pickles you, like formaldehyde.
You know you're old when they ink you up with heavy black eyeliner, lashes... then shine a prison searchlight on your face. Everything gets whited out, like an Andy Warhol silk screen.
r5, Barbara Cartland used to carry a flashlight to shine on her own face during interview to do just that.
She looks great! I have seen her a few times over the years. In the '90's, she let herself go. She was a great beauty in her day. Why not have a wonderful face-lift>? I love her!
R7 The first time I saw her face to face was in the 90s and yea, she looked like hell then. And she was fat. She actually looks better now than she did then.
I saw her in concert in the Twenty Os and she looked good but in a plastic surgery/botoxed enhanced type of way.Debby was adopted, I have always wondered what her "birth" ethnicity is. Whatever it is,she was fucking hot.
She has to change her face because Madonna stole her original face.
She and Kate Pierson have the 65+ botox market cornered.
She's looking a little "Morgan Fairchild" but that's fine.
She didn't go full-cryptkeeper.
Debs has already admitted to having a face lift, so most posting here must not be longtime fans, otherwise you would have know this fact has been known for many years.
She says she was not against plastic surgery and other procedures. Debbie also looks good because she never had children to stress her out!
Debbie mentioned in a print interview many years ago, that she thought she might have been Marilyn Monroe's daughter, she thought Marilyn might have secretly given birth and given up a baby. I guess that was because Debbie knew she was adopted and the fact that so many people kept telling her she looked so much like Marilyn.
You want to see what 70 looks like? Joni Mitchell looks ALL of her 70 years. Of course her nasty smoking habit hasn't helped matters.
Ooh, good story R13. Debbie must be Scandinavian in some way. The cheekbones Madonna now mimics with implants. Where was Deb born?
Joni Mitchell looks like she could star in "Driving Miss Daisy II".
R15, IIRC, Debbie was born in New Jersey or at least that's where she grew up, she could have been adopted from another state.
Oh my god - Joni!
I'm much older than I think I am. I think I need a nap.
Deborah mentioned Stephen Sprouse- oh i am feeling so old.
Debbie was born in Miami.
When we saw Joni Mitchell on The National, my husband asked if she was made up for the role of Frau Blucher in the Young Frankenstein musical.
My dad's a sound tech and has worked with her a bunch of times. R17 she was born in Florida but was raised in NJ. Last dad heard she was living in a very secluded house on the river in Red Bank. My dad tells this funny story about how one time she was doing a show at the Stone Pony and some guy who she must have gone to high school with was there and passed their school year book up to the stage with a note asking her to sign it. She didnt see the note, smiled said thank you then passed it off to a roadie to put in the bin they had for when people would pass gifts and flowers up to the stage. After the show this guy is out at her bus having a melt down. He wanted his yearbook back! (at this point in the story my dad hesitantly admits the guy was obviously gay...which I kind of think makes it funnier) Anyway, he got the yearbook back, signed once the misunderstanding was cleared up.
I think she looks great in these pics. Yea, she's had work done, but at least she still looks like Debbie Harry. Im glad to see she didnt go the way Dolly Parton or Marlo Thomas did. Those two dont even look like the same women anymore.
It's a picture for an article; of course it's going to be photoshopped.
She looks good for her age but not THAT good. And yes, she's obviously had work done.
Joni Mitchell doesn't need to look sexy. She was never a sex symbol; she's admired for her songwriting, not her looks. It was never about looks for Joni Mitchell.
Debbie WAS a sex symbol, a truly beautiful woman. I never thought she was a major talent, but Blondie did put out some good music back in the day.
I have NEVER understood why Madonna was ever considered an attractive or sexually desirable human being. I've seen early pictures of her; she was nothing in the looks department. I will say this for her; her drive to create herself as a sex symbol was second to none. Not only that, she was nothing as a dancer, nothing as a singer, nothing as a musician. But she made herself into a star. That is her great achievement: despite having no looks or talent she made herself into a star. Of course she did it in the most hackneyed way possible: making everything she did all about sex. But due to her inhuman determination she managed to pull it off. She's still hanging on to that, even though she's in her fiftes and looks like a retard with her tits and ass hanging out in public. Someone should tell it's over and she's not "sexy" anymore, just pathetic.
She looks tremendous.
But she has to wear a wig now; she bleached all her hair off.
What are you talking about r25. Madonna is a great dancer.
I think Joni looks great and natural for 70. She's SEVENTY for heaven's sake. What/who should you look like -- Jane "Formaldehyde" Fonda, Goldie "Samson" Hawn, Sophia "What's Plastic Surgery" Loren? Joni hung out with the guys and is/was respected. And she's cute!
As far as her ethnicity, with her facial bone structure, I always assumed she might be of Ukrainian or Russian descent.
Debbie (first) had a face lift yeeeears ago after she lost all the weight and did comeback attempt # What?
Saw her a few years ago. Kind of a sad, desperate attempt to look younger and hide aged hands with gloves and something not unlike hose on her old arms
Memo to Madge: Debbie Harry a cautionary tale
"It was never about looks for Joni Mitchell."
BULLSHIT! She was a former model and she never shut up about it. I'm not questioning her talent or accomplishments, but she was not "above it all" when it came to her appearance.
Having said that, she does look a bit like Livia Soprano via the Ivy League. But it is actually interesting to see a woman look her age. Although, her hair would be completely white by now.
I remember Deb Harry, fat and drugged up in the French Quarter of New Orleans. She was the New Years Eve act for the OZ disco, back in the 80s. She looked like hell.
Debbie embarked on her hand-beautifying regimen (a.k.a. porking out) in 1982:
Didn't/doesn't Joni smoke a huge amount? That would do it.
And lots of sun, like the good little flowerchild she was.
Who are you referring to r26? I've heard that Madge has hair issues but not Debbie.
I think Debbie looks better now than she has looked over the last 15 years. This most recent face work is good. She still retains the features that make her 'Debbie'. Madge fucked her face in late 2009/10 - her eyes, cheeks, chin and hairline. It's not her face anymore. Debbie's got a good few years on Madonna and she looks better than her now.
who is debbie Harry's surgeon? really does anyone know?
I saw Blondie a few months ago near the end of their small theater tour. It was a great show, and Debbie was amazing.
Joni Mitchell's face always had something lon-chaney-as-the-phantom about it. Those nostrils.
Debbie Harry might be Polish. Lots of good-looking older blonde Polish women about, like Martha Stewart.
Is Joni still trying to pass herself off as Sami? First she claimed First Nation heritage, then later claimed Sami heritage. A Norwegian journalist tracked her ancestry and found there is no Sami blood in the family.
Supposedly Debbie's surgeon is Sherrell Aston, best in the biz.
Debbie ballooned after 'Koo Koo' and 'The Hunter', then pulled herself together for 1989's 'Def, Dumb and Blonde', but it was temporary.
Seems like she hit the ice cream hard after each failed album.
Debbie does look very 'shopped in the first photo, but the second one is much better/more authentic.
Speaking of that..No threads on Cher's performance and wig last night?
Considering the drugs and the kind of rock and roll life she's lived I'd say she looks miraculously wonderful. She has good genes but she's also been very open about her plastic surgery.
The poster above is right that she looks like one of those beautiful older Polish ladies.

I have a friend who is Hungarian and she could pass for Debbie Harry's much younger clone. Wide jaw, kind of flat face, tiny nose, sensuous lips. She is (as Debbie was in her youth) a total stunner. Ive actually seen guys fall over themselves looking at her.

She obviously needs to added to the stars who are psychotic thread.
Debbie thought she might have been MM daughter when she was a child. Its not uncommon for adopted children to fantasize about who their real parents could be. That doesnt make her psychotic R49. That makes her normal.
