Susanna Hoffs - what's her beauty secret?

She was 51 when this video was recorded. Plastic surgery? Botox?

by Anonymousreply 9203/31/2017

Can she afford plastic surgery?

Good genes and a healthy lifestyle, I guess. She is gorgeous!

by Anonymousreply 712/24/2011

Knew Susanna as a young woman. Has always taken care of herself and always looked good. Has had work done, but the right kind of work -- discreet and smart.

by Anonymousreply 812/24/2011

This may come as a shock to the young uns here but looking good at 51 is not all that hard. Good genes and having foregone a life of hard drugs and alcohol obviously can help.

A well known "secret" is that for men age 54 is a particularly pleasant time in life especially for sex.

by Anonymousreply 912/24/2011

Her husband is Jay Roach. Even though she's a has-been, she still has access to the mega bucks required to pay the best plastic surgeons.

LOL!!!!!!!!!! Susanna HOFFS, dear.

by Anonymousreply 1112/24/2011

I don't know about Hoffs' life, dear, but I just looked at the video and she looks like a 51 year old woman. She could even pass for older. I can see lines and a moveable face. She smartly has her hair framing that face as well.

What do you exect to see in a woman this age? Ms. Haversham? I think some of you are not living in the real world.

by Anonymousreply 1212/24/2011

Susanna has a few lines, but she looks much younger than 51. I'd say that she looks like an attractive woman in her late 30s.

Not in this day and age when women dress and style themselves unlike their counterparts of the 1950s and before - even the 1960s and 1970s.

by Anonymousreply 1412/24/2011

She looks younger than many actresses in their 30s (Kate W for one).

by Anonymousreply 1512/24/2011

It's all in the genes. She is baby-faced, so naturally looks youthful.

Unlike the harder faced/look their age or older likes of Madonna and Kate Winslet who looked like Leo's mum in Titanic.

by Anonymousreply 1612/24/2011

She looks like she's in her 40's. A rough, hard living 40's, I might add.

OP, she looks her age, but is very attractive.

I'm with r23. She looks great, obviously has had some good work done, but the voice is beyond horrible.

by Anonymousreply 2412/24/2011

She looks gorgeous. Not a huge fan of her adenoidal voice, but in response to the earlier poster - yeah, she was always considered to be 'a beauty.' People attributed a lot of the success of the Bangles to her looks, iirc.

by Anonymousreply 2512/25/2011

She's lived a clean living life pretty much.

Vicki & Debbie look pretty good too.

But who's the new bass player? I loves me some Michael.

Am I the only one here who likes her voice? I think her music with Matthew Sweet is great.

What happened with Michael Steel? Did she quit the group for good?

R29, Michael quit awhile ago.

I like Susanna's voice. It reminds me a little of Stevie Nicks'. I'd like to see SH and MS record some of Stevie's material.

I always liked this one.

by Anonymousreply 3101/15/2012

I have a friend who is 52 and looks this good.

She really could pass for 35.

And all she does is keep her weight low and walk for 30 minutes to an hour every morning the weather is nice.

And she is truly the nicest person I know. Kind and polite and friendly to everyone.

Some people just have good genes.

by Anonymousreply 3201/15/2012

I don't think she looks her age at all, definitely looks 10 years younger. Her beauty secret is probably a really good, really expensive cosmetic surgeon.

by Anonymousreply 3301/15/2012

Beautiful--looks mid forties with really good genes.

by Anonymousreply 3401/15/2012

She looks unusually great for her age.

Where are the idiots that defend the pictures of women who are 35 and look 55 and tell you it's natural aging?

by Anonymousreply 3501/15/2012

She looks her age, and she also looks attractive. The two aren't mutually exclusive. I don't know what some of you think 51-year-olds are supposed to look like, but that is what women look like when they take care of themselves.

by Anonymousreply 3601/15/2012

Just leave her alone seems there is a lot of envy out there. So judgemental truth is she still looks hot and youthful

by Anonymousreply 3706/11/2012

So you bump a 6 month old thread to tell posters to 'leave her alone'? Yeah, that's helping the situation.

by Anonymousreply 3806/11/2012

I knew her before the Bangles hit big with videos. Hoffs had the worst acne I'd ever seen, even wore than Bryan Adams. Dermabrasion and heavy makeup are her best friends.

by Anonymousreply 3906/11/2012

She hasn't had a hit in 25 years. That way when you mention her name people go online and the most recent picture they see of her was taken 25 years ago, so they think she is young.

by Anonymousreply 4006/11/2012

I've seen her in concert only a couple years ago - She looks much younger than 50 still. There are also plenty of YouTube videos of SH from recent years, both with the Bangles and with Sweet.

by Anonymousreply 4106/11/2012

She's not very good live, I saw her first solo concert tour and we left before it was over. Her voice ain't all that.

by Anonymousreply 4206/11/2012

R42 - her voice is raspy, but it's a good raspy, and Susanna has good stage presence.

by Anonymousreply 4306/11/2012

It may be raspy but it's not strong. She sounded horrible as a solo and not any good songs either. No spark or presence. She's lucky to have a music career. The Bangles always had prerecorded trax and an offstage keyboardist.

by Anonymousreply 4406/11/2012

I've never seen her live, but there are a lot of her live shows posted on You Tube. I really like her voice, it's very distinctive. I can see where not everyone would like it; it is raspy. She and Sweet do a great job as Sid and Susie.

And yes, she looks like she's 15-20 years younger than she is.

by Anonymousreply 4506/12/2012

all of The Bangles' big hits were written by male songwriters, just sayin'.

Susanna co-wrote Eternal Flame, R46. Each of the women wrote some excellent songs that never made it as hits.

She sounds fantastic in acoustic performances. Here she is performing "Raining" with Andrew Brassell, a song they wrote for her recent solo disc "Someday".

And yes, she looks damn good.

And a pretty cool stripped down version of "If She Knew What She Wants" from her Philly show last year. The audience loved it.

by Anonymousreply 5007/27/2013

Thanks R50

by Anonymousreply 5107/27/2013

Her solo album was a huge disappointment and her ego seemed out of control at that time too. There was a lot of bitterness between her and the other girls. Michael Steele was meant to have solo album too but it never happened. For me she was always the most talented and interesting Bangle. I've seem them live a few times (without Michael) and they've all aged well. Can those that knew Susanna give us some goss? What was she like?

by Anonymousreply 5207/28/2013

I think they were a little jealous over the attention Susanna got, but they got over that. Not sure why Michael left.

Here's a 2012 interview of SH and the Peterson sisters.

by Anonymousreply 5307/29/2013

[quote]The Bangles always had prerecorded trax and an offstage keyboardist.

Maybe they did later on, but I saw them in a small club circa All Over The Place and they rocked, sans keyboards or backing tracks. They wrote most of their own tunes then, too. They were really good in the early days.

by Anonymousreply 5407/29/2013

They had a guy, who they nicknamed Harpo, do their keyboard for most of the time they were touring.

by Anonymousreply 5909/14/2013

The Bangles never would have made it without Susanna's looks.

The rest of them chicks were dogs. You'd think she would have slipped them her plastic surgeon's number before those reunions.

Compare Susanna to where Ann Wilson and Linda Ronstadt were/are at her age, and the bitch deserves a spot in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame on a technicality.

by Anonymousreply 6009/14/2013

Thanks R57. Eternal Flame is one of the songs that SH (co) wrote, and it's based on the Bangles visit to Graceland.

R60 - Really? The Peterson sisters and Michael were attractive in the 80s. They didn't have Susanna's looks, but they were far from hideous. SH does not deserve to be in the HoF. Linda does.

by Anonymousreply 6109/14/2013

She's not a cunt like Bitchlinda Carlisle, or a crazy bitch like Jane "Let Me Sell You My Panties!" Wiedlin.

Here's an even better version of "Different Drum," where she's backed by Matthew Sweet, an early indie god who did not suffer fools. It is fucking good.

by Anonymousreply 6309/14/2013

Matthew Sweet was SO hot, and he's turned into a bloated David Crosby look alike. Sadz.

by Anonymousreply 6409/15/2013

I kind of put her in the category of Diana Ross (not that she was as big as Diana Ross). She had a distinctive voice that was well suited for their hits. She also had a presence on their videos -- and this was when MTV played videos. She was not only the best looking Bangle, but had very expressive eyes and came off more than just some mannequin. Someone mentioned earlier they thought she never looked good, but being in high school at that time, a lot of guys wanted her -- largely due to her face etc., but a lot of it was the eyes and the vibe she gave off.

by Anonymousreply 6509/15/2013

meant to say - not strong, but distinctive and well suited for their hits.

by Anonymousreply 6609/15/2013

I tipped her off on dumpster diving behind abortion clinics and eating the discarded fetuses. Nothing keeps you younger looking.

by Anonymousreply 6709/15/2013

Looking at her recent pictures, she looks like she's had a lot of skin treatments - lasers, chemical peels, definitely botox in the forehead and around the eyes, possibly a mini facelift because her cheeks look tighter than a normal aging woman in her 50s...she also looks like she had an upper eye job and a lower eye job, and chin & cheek implants, and at least one nose job. Whoever did the work did really nice work though, because she looks amazing.

I like that song at r69 too. I think the songs Susanna writes have a California 60's vibe.

Susanna looks incredible as always. And Rosanna looks great too. I always wondered why she didn't have a bigger career, I loved her in Desperately Seeking Susan.

She didn't have the drive, r72. She takes what comes to her - never went out to get it.

by Anonymousreply 7603/30/2014

Ok, I had to look just to see what everyone was talking about. She does look really, really good for her age. If I had never seen/met her before, I would have thought she was early 40s. Having said that, she is unrecognizable from how she looked in the 80s/90s. She looks kind of mixed Asian to me.

by Anonymousreply 7703/30/2014

Thanks r77 - she lists all her beauty secrets at that link you gave. Walking an hour and a half a day is probably the best advice she dispenses.

The eyebrows are wrong in r77's picture. Perhaps she's acting again and playing a Vulcan.

by Anonymousreply 8104/01/2014

She always has been a very pretty Jewish girl. Even at 55, she's still a looker. She's either a vegan or vegetarian (I forget which)) and those people usually have good skin as they age.

Susanna was always obsessed with the 60s despite coming of age in the 70s and being a star in the 80s/early 90s. Thank goodness she didn't ruin herself with drugs like a lot of her idols did.

I'll also never forget how a few years ago she blamed the success of Vadge for the rise of trash like Paris Hilton.

Love Susanna! She should have had a bigger career. She didn't have a big voice but she could carry a tune and didn't need auto-tune.

by Anonymousreply 8204/02/2014

R82 - The Bangles as a whole were much into 60s music. Their biggest hits (Manic Monday and Walk like an Egyptian) are not all that representative of the rest of their material.

"Compare Susanna to where Ann Wilson and Linda Ronstadt were/are at her age, and the bitch deserves a spot in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame on a technicality."

What do you mean by this? Ann & Linda had huge strong voices that carried over the drums & electric guitars. People like Susanna & ONJ have to tone the instruments down onstage so their weak voices can be heard. I think Susanna is talented and beautiful, but not as much as Linda Ronstadt who was incredible in concert. Her voice was so loud and expressive and versatile. That said, Jay Roach is hot and looks like he could throw a mean fuck.

by Anonymousreply 8603/31/2017

I agree with R65 , not the strongest voice, but distinctive and worked well for their songs. I was in high school at the time, and a lot of guys did think she was hot. I think the other lead of the big 80's girl group was somewhat similar. Belinda's voice was not necessarily the best voice technically, but it was distinctive and fit the songs. I still enjoy hearing the Bangles or the Go Gos from time to time.

by Anonymousreply 8703/31/2017

R86 Why did you bump a 6 yr old thread to discuss this nobody?
