Can you believe Gloria Estefan is just a couple months shy of turning 55!?

She certainly doesn't look like it on the August issue of Latina magazine! Seriously, Gloria looks better than most of the starlets that are half her age. It's incredible.

While we may not know Estefan's secret to the fountain of youth, we DO know what she talked about with the magazine.

Inside the pages of the music issue, the icon that is Gloria opens up on being a role model to fellow Latinas, her 30+ year marriage to Emilio Estefan, fame and recovering from that horrific bus crash in 1990.

Here are some HIGHlights:

On being a role model to Latinas:

"Inspiring Latinas is the most beautiful side product of my career. It’s a beautiful thing to inspire somebody in some way and make them feel, 'I can do this.'"

On how to have a successful marriage:

"We are partners in everything. Emilio has been there for me and I’ve been there for him and his growth. It’s been a great balance."

On the trappings of fame and stardom:

"Forget the money and the notoriety, because you don’t take that home and put it to bed with you. What difference does it make if you have all this fame and people are clamoring for you and you’re off that stage and you’re home alone?"

Her love advice to college-bound daughter, Emily:

"It’s really important that you know the person. Emilio and I were together for two years before we got married. He was my love."

On overcoming the grueling recovery from a devastating car crash:

"Maybe this is the whole point, to show people that you can rise above, and you can be strong and that you can get past the things that life throws your way."

Such an inspiration! Always have and always will be in our eyes!

Besos!

    So funny just talking to my mom about doing a song in the next few month with a "Gloria Estefan" feel. Growing up in SFL her music and the Latin beat is a big influence in music. Really it MAKES you want to dance and sing! She does look amazing on the cover! PS Enjoy London..one of my dream places to do a concert!

    WOW!!! it's been a while since I've seen so much airbrushing done to one face!! If you watched Glee recently you would know this is NOT how she looks in real life… Love her though!!

    "Gloria, Please return to your room; you have to get ready for BINGO, and you know what comes after BINGO…Tapioca Night…you like Tapioca, don't you? Gloria, Please return to your room…""

    Now that is truly amazing, Perez! Especially when comparing Teresita with Gloria, since they are less than 3-4 years apart in age! Or is that picture heavily Photoshopped?

    If the words Gloria Stefan weren't present, I seriously would have trouble recognising her.
    Honestly, I think this just gives an irrealistic image for women to achieve.
    Most of the "gorgeous" celebrities are really normal people who have extremely competent make up artists and a little bit of natural beauty.

    She must go to the same Plastic Surgeon Joan Rives & Barry Manilow goes to; they could be triplets…
