Just had to mention Madonna's 50th . . . seems like the world keeps aging . . . what's that about? Eventually we'll all catch up with each other, believe it or not.

And, yes, friends out there, you, too, will turn 50 someday. And hopefully you'll still feel fabulous and live a fabulous life. The picture of me on my default icon was taken a couple days after my 50th. And there's never a day I get up and think "I'm old"; in fact, I'm shocked when I hear a reference to it.

I still remember having one of the princesses refer to Madonna as "old" in a newspaper interview some 16 or 17 years ago. I remember giving her hell about it. And just think, now that girl is older than Madonna was then, and I bet she doesn't look or feel near as good as Madge does at 50.

Age really is a state of mind. And if you can keep your body healthy, there's nothing to fear.

Wow, it's great to hear from someone who feels like I do!

My life got even better after 40. Actually, I think I look and feel much better now than when I was a teenager. I'm definitely fitter, even if I weigh a bit more.

It's funny . . . the world is aging demographically, but we're still obsessed in the media with youth. It's great to see these pop icons aging, too, because that forces the world to take note that age is just a state of mind.
