I still don't think I believe it.

My friends Cari and JJ have been watching Simon Cowell's latest singing contest show, The X Factor.  Because I spend so much time at their house, I inevitably caught some clips of the performers.  I had all the typical reactions: he's amazing, they're annoying, she's another Mariah Carey wannabe, blah blah blah.  But then I saw this guy:


I can't even pay attention to his voice, because I'm too busy being shocked by the fact that he is sixty years old.  60.  WHAAAAAAT?  How is that possible?  Is there really such thing as a fountain of youth?  What is his secret???  He says that if he reaches 100,000 twitter followers that he'll post his birth certificate as proof.  But even then, I don't know that I could really believe it--I mean look at this guy:




I mean, 60.  Seriously??

Simple. He was never married to or had the good fortune to interact with my second wife.

To bring you back to Georgia for a bit...

"you lie."

He most certainly is not 60.

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Yeah I watched like two episodes of this show and I was shocked when I'd heard that. But it could be true. According to one of my black friends "black don't crack!" Lol she says that's why they look so much younger than they are :)

Christianna said...

Hahahahaha Leeann's comment just made me laugh so hard!

Dang snap he's looking good for 60...

sheba said...

Woah he looks good! I kinda agree w Leann's friend.

Micaela said...

i couldn't believe it either!!!

i tried to watch X Factor when it came out but stopped after the live shows... i do remember that he was good though :) and i do remember being floored when he shared his age.

BAHAHA i'm laughing at leann's comment too. Asians age well too... so maybe there's hope for a half of me! ;)

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

WHAT? Did he find the fountain of youth or something?

Gracie said...

Wow! No way! I would not peg him for that age at all. He could totally bag a woman less than half his age.

Leesh said...

I remember catching a few of the earlier episodes and was shocked that he was 60. I hope I look that good when I am 60.

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

WOW! He does not like 60 at all! I mean really, he looks like MAYBE 30's! That's crazy!
