The guy just wants tall grass and frail shoulders. Nothing too kinky about that.

I will say that he owes her an electric frying pan though. I blame him for that.

I get that facing mortality is difficult. But she has had a LIFE. A lot of people are seriously affected by the pandemic. Losing homes, family members, lives. She’s all like “I might miss out on my 5th decade of touring in my final “young years.” It’s just so fantastically tone deaf.
Funny that you mention Lucille Ball, because Lucille was famous for wearing scarfs in her later years, to hide her sagging neck.

In other words, I agree she should USE extensions if she isn't already because the current look, if it's her natural hair, isn't cutting it anymore.[/Q] If it IS extensions, her hair stylist needs to be fired ASAP.

She makes it sound like LB NEVER attempted any outside jobs. He did. He talked back in the day about having worked a telemarketing job for a short time. It was basically a scam and he didn't do it very long, but then Miss Thang worked a *single day* as a dental assistant (which she always calls "dental hygienist") and complained she couldn't take all the bending forward.
The "cleaning lady" was a joke, per Keith Olsen. Let's be real, she has never been good at much other than singing so one could easily ask the question "What else COULD she do??" Doing something for 6 months doesn't mean you could have done it as a career.

Christine talked about the men in the band *occasionally* carrying her (Christine's) suitcase, and road crew talked about Chris setting up her own keyboards and gear. I would bet anything Stevie never carried a suitcase once upon joining FM. Christine finally caved and got a second adjoining hotel room for her clothes and getting ready for shows or whatever AFTER she rejoined the band a few years ago. Stevie's been demanding Presidential suites forever and had an entourage dialing the phone, filling her bath, ordering her dinner, and wiping her nose for decades. Hell, Chrissie Hynde described touring with her as like touring with Elizabeth Taylor, and found the gaps between shows with Stevie unacceptably long to where she booked smaller gigs for herself in between.

This woman whining that life is hard for her is beyond the pale.
She has had extensions at least since 1988. The hairdresser for the 1988 tour told me that her hair wouldn't grow beyond her jaw line. The rest of it was fake.

She'll be down to a one note range by then.

Bah, bah black sheep, have you any wool?
That's what she's doing right now.

Oh, it’s a great trick. I think it would look really flattering on Stevie in a softer color. I am 48 so my scarf years are definitely beginning soon.

And I suspect most people are just like me in those respects.
You’re right, and she is very good about sprinkling in a bit or two of “new” information every time she needs to promote something new, that she talks about in every sinterview. I remember when she revealed that Joe Walsh was the love of her life and that was her talking point for a while. Or the year she said it was all a stage act between her and Lindsey. It’s all part of the fun, for me at least, to pick out the new talking points.

Wow. That’s pretty early on in her life. Trying to imagine a world in which extensions didn’t exist. A short-haired Stevie (or high-quality wigs, more likely.)

I dunno, the whole "uuhhhh...bark like a dog" , and the "come and keep your daddy warm" (any 'daddy' references in a sexual context are gross no matter if it's him or Chris making them) and all the moaning and groaning..."Here I come baby"....Think of me, sweet darlin', every time you don't come.

Even though he moaned at the end of it in shows, I just don’t see Holiday Road as having sexual connotations.

But yes. This is the guy who wrote Tusk. Real savage like.
