Barry Manilow now looks like a middle-aged lesbian

Why do men do this to themselves?

He looks like Clay Aiken NOW.

by Anonymousreply 106/12/2010

Why do people, men OR women, get plastic surgery like this? It just makes them look WORSE! Manilow looks embalmed, it just makes him look foolish, not younger.

Hello? Is this Madame Tussaud's? One of your mannequins has been located.

He's a hot Ellen.

He really does look like a lesbian!

by Anonymousreply 506/12/2010

Why? Why? Why?

If he had paid enough, he could have gotten a decent surgeon to make him look good.

by Anonymousreply 606/12/2010

NSFW warning would have helped, OP.

R7 Barry Manilow is NSFW??

Where do you work?? A seminary where secular music is considered the work of satan?

I Just saw Manilow on TV. The only thing that move on his face are his eyelids and his lower lip. His face looks like molded plastic. So sad.%0D

OMG the eyes!

Awww, c'mon, he never WAS a real looker. I think he looks pretty good there.

by Anonymousreply 1206/15/2011

Well it's the plastic surgery and the airbrushing that makes him so pretty.

It's playin' all those years at the baths, Mary!

Love his over the top Vegas-y, Elvis-y arrangements. The theme from "Foul Play" "Ready to Take A Chance Again", "Looks Like We Made It", "Daybreak", yes he has some classic great vocals and records. "Somewhere in the Night", love that one as well.

by Anonymousreply 1506/15/2011

He was never a drop dead good looking guy even in his best years. What I saw on TV was pethetic: Looks like he went to Kenny Roger's plastic surgeon when both of them were high!! Poor guy looks like suntanned plastic; he has no facial expression now; still talented and quite a show man in his Vegas show - but not worth the price they want.%0D %0D Too bad their ego will not let entertainment celebrities and sports stars just fade away as they used to in the past.

by Anonymousreply 1606/15/2011

I never noticed his nose surgery before. Other than that, it's fucking imazining he claims, "no surgery." Numerous facelifts, nose job(s), check's not just "wrinkle free."

Isn't it just an overly air-brushed photo?

The "After" shot at R18 looks like Bradley Cooper in 30 years.

by Anonymousreply 2206/16/2011

Why do any people continually disfigure themselves with plastic surgery? I am not talking about minor or subtle procedures like eyelid droop, or pinning back ears. I see women all the time on the Upper East Side- they look alike- they think they look better, younger. Neither is the case. When I misjudge someones age, (they are older than they look) it is NEVER due to plastic surgery, ever. It is due to being fit, and having he right kind of face and skin that tends not to wrinkle, crease, and sag... luck.%0D %0D Staying fit perhaps does more to keep someone looking good than any single thing one can to.

by Anonymousreply 2306/16/2011

Actually, my friends and I are all much better looking than he is.

I vote R8 for the "Rose Nylund" post of the day.

Manilow looks all "puffy" like he has plastic injected under the skin. Which, of course, he does. He looks scary in that second pic, like someone who is all blown up from steroid treatments.

by Anonymousreply 2606/16/2011

He had the nerve in a recent USA Today interview to say he still has his hair.

by Anonymousreply 2706/16/2011

Yeah, I've seen him interviewed recently and the mouth movements make Thunderbirds puppets look like Louis Armstrong.

God knows what happens if or when he really finds something laugh-out-loud funny.

by Anonymousreply 2806/16/2011

He always rather looked like a tom-boy. I think Tori Spelling will eventually look the same way.

by Anonymousreply 2906/16/2011

No one has even mentioned the ridiculous frosted shag hairdo on a 68-year-old man. I sat behind him at Chita Rivera's quasi-one-woman show a few years ago -- the only celeb I've ever seen who came to a Bway theatre with full entourage -- and the spiky highlights were something to behold up close. He made Chita look age-appropriate in comparison.

by Anonymousreply 3006/16/2011

No, R21, that is not an air-brushed photo.%0D %0D I've seen him on TV numerous times lately and his face is an immobile mask.%0D %0D He has also been doing nothing but lip-syncing for about the last 10 years in appearances.%0D %0D I still like him though and appreciate quite a few of the songs he has recorded and written.

by Anonymousreply 3106/16/2011

Maybe I'm crazy, but is there even a small chance, like even one percent chance, that Barry Manilow is actually not gay? I always assumed he was gay and I even thought he wsa out, but now I'm wondering. His Wikipedea entry doesn't mention anything, not even that there may be "rumors" he is gay, and apparently he was married to his high school girlfriend (Susan Deixler). And I've never seen pictures of him with any young male studs. In his business and with his image, wouldn't he be totally out if he was gay? Is it possible he's just a shy, nerdy, maybe asexual, straight guy? I'm still 99% certain he is gay, but.... maybe....

He's gay. His partner is a very hot Latin guy

It's the motionless cheeks that are so strange.

His face looks like the masques of comedy AND tragedy.

by Anonymousreply 4106/23/2011

Is he just seems so clearly, irrefutibly gay, that he just might be straight?%0D %0D Could it be that, unlike most celebrities, he prefers to keep his private life private, and does not feel the need to jump on sofas proclaiming his love of women?

by Anonymousreply 4206/23/2011

I really don't think he smokes much, if at all.%0D %0D I know that photo has a cigarette in his hand - it might be photoshopped.%0D %0D But if it is not photoshopped, I still don't think he regularly smokes.%0D %0D R33, how do you know he has a hot latino boyfriend? How could you possibly know?%0D %0D I think Barry and his manager, Garry Kief, have been live-in lovers for many decades.

by Anonymousreply 4306/23/2011

r43, why on earth would anyone photoshop a cigarette into Barry Manilow's hand? What a bizarre thing to say.

by Anonymousreply 4406/24/2011

R44, you are obviously unaware that there are photos on the internet where a cigarette has been photoshopped into the famous person's hand.

by Anonymousreply 4506/24/2011

Um, yes, r45... On smoking fetish sites. So if this were a photo of, say, Megan Fox or Bradley Cooper, well, maybe... But do you honestly believe anyone wants to jerk off to photos of Barry Manilow smoking-- or doing anything, for that matter? And why is it so important to you to prove that Barry Manilow doesn't smoke? %0D %0D The photo is not photoshopped. He's smoking. Deal.

He was on Gayle King and she was showing a clip package and he turned to the side to watch it and then saw his profile in the camera monitor and practically shrieked "My nose is horrible!"

by Anonymousreply 5106/24/2011

Gayle also tried to get him to come out. She asked him if he had a significant other and really pestered him about it using all gender neutral pronouns. Finally he told her that if she and he were friends he would invite her over to his house and she would know everything she wanted to know.

by Anonymousreply 5206/24/2011

You guys are MEAN. This guy looks great for his age - imagine how he would look if he hadn't had the work! His fans adore him and he puts on a great show. More power to him, I say!

R53, take it elsewhere, honey.%0D %0D It's kind of sad Barry Manilow has never come out of the closet. He doesn't just look like a lesbian, he acts like one too!

I've seen him on a good number of tv shows this week and last week promoting his new album called '15 Minutes'.%0D %0D The way his upper lip will not move at all...%0D %0D along with the way his cheeks, mouth, and strip above the upper lip will not move at all..%0D %0D is very distracting.%0D %0D He also can barely open his mouth to talk and to sing. His mouth is a very narrow slit.%0D %0D I really appreciate Barry's music and love a lot of his ballads, and find the immobility of his face and cheeks rather heartbreaking.

Is that a full wig he's wearing? He looks quite sickly. I know he has a bum ticker.

by Anonymousreply 6806/24/2011

I saw him at the Cher show in Vegas, he sat 3 rows behind me. He looks much older w/o stage lighting. He had one of those Gilligan hats on, pulled all the way down over his eyes. He looked so familiar but it took me a few minutes to figure out who he was. He was with 1 female, no entourage.

R68, Barry does NOT have a bum ticker.%0D %0D I cannot believe the lies and misinformation and fabrications which posters print on Datalounge.%0D %0D And he is not emaciated.

He had a lifestyle lift but they pulled him too tight...another older star who looks like a burn victim. I guess they think that's attractive. I love a face that looks natural. Why do some get good work and some, look awful?

I doubt that Barry Manilow had the very cheap 'lifestyle lift'.%0D %0D 'Lifestyle lifts' have many drawbacks and are inexpensive.

Barry and Bette have had major work done on them. Look at Steve Martin and Robin Williams. Steve looks great but his face doesn't move either. If you like a star you'll put up with these things; if you already hate them, well then you have something to criticize.

R71, I have NEVER thought of Barry Manilow as a closet case! Just like Rock Hudson, Charles Nelson Reilly and Rip Taylor, I Assumed he Was Gay. He started out with Bette Midler at the Continental Baths in NYC. You are off base.

by Anonymousreply 8706/26/2011

gotta disagree folks Have been a fan since 1974 Just saw him privately for 10 minutes and had a pic with him. He looks great and yes there are wrinkles around the eyes and about the mouth and on the forehead. His face does move and he is able to smile and show emotions. He is kind and I was far from disappointed. His eyes are his best feature and his hands are long and slender and beautiful after all the years of piano playing. And as to masculinity, he oozes it. This took place on Dec 15,2012 Had to give my input to this conversation amongst people that are looking at mass produced photo ops bjw

I know Barry's a gay treasure and music can be enjoyed on many levels, but I think his music is horrible. And, I like pop schmaltz at times. I can't even enjoy it in a camp way. Ugh.

I think u r all losers for talking shit about Barry Manilow. Steve Sausen.

by Anonymousreply 9401/27/2013

Until the day any of you can say Barry told you HIMSELF personally, that he is gay,you are SORELY wrong. This has been a rumor and nothing more. He, has never ONCE, uttered those words to ANYONE. And I DARE anyone to try and PROVE otherwise. Ya can't plain and simple. So shut the 'f' up because you are believing nothing but a RUMOR, and as the saying goes, 'if you believe everything, you hear or read you ARE automatically a gullible idiot, period.'

My partner worked in the law office that represented Manilow years ago. He met him a number of times and socialized with him in the context of his work. The law firm was pretty much gay, obviously my partner is. Barry Manilow is gay. I can't believe anyone would wonder about his sexual orientation.

by Anonymousreply 9606/13/2013

R95- Mary Banilow is GAY. Many years ago in the clus Hurrah in NYC which was the predecessor to Studio 54, Mary tried mighty hard to pick up my friend Tom and me too. We were in our early 20s and not interested. Tom was particularly funny about it.

He is as gay as we were then and are now.

Didn't he date Bette Midler and Suzanne Somers? I doubt he's gay.
