Annie Lennox Helps Charity Break Record

Filed under: InspirationCharity

Annie Lennox Charity

Yeah! Go Annie!

Annie Lennox just helped a children's charity break a fundraising record by raising $563,000 at a special concert!

The former Eurythmics star entertained guests at the Clyde 1 & Clyde 2 Cash for Kids ball in Glasgow, Scotland, in aid of vulnerable children in the country. The event smashed its own record by raising more than half a million dollars - and organisers thanked Lennox for helping to bring in the huge donations.

Such a good outcome to such a good cause!

How wonderful of Annie to help out!

Annie Lennox Reveals Foot Drop Syndrome

Filed under: FacebookHealthInjury

Annie Lennox

Oh no! We're so sorry to hear this!

Annie Lennox has revealed that she has been battling a painful foot condition called foot drop syndrome since 2008.

As a result, her left foot is permanently numb "with constant pins and needles". She shared the handicap with her fans on Facebook, writing:

"Three years ago I found myself in the most extreme pain I've ever experienced. It turned out that I had a dropped foot, caused by my spinal column being impinged by a bulged disk. For the first time in my life, I was facing a real physical handicap, and had no idea whether I'd ever be able to walk normally again. It took months of physiotherapy to get movement back in my left foot, but gradually…painstakingly…my toes began to move again, to the point where I don't even have a perceivable limp. Now, the only drawback is that I have a permanently numb left foot, which feels as if it's stuck in a bucket of ice, with constant pins and needles. It's very strange, but somehow I've managed to adapt, and I find that I'm less aware of it than I was before."

Ugh! We couldn't imagine experiencing that, but are so happy to hear Annie is adapting.

Despite the sudden physical disability, the 56-year-old was at least grateful her feet lasted as long as they have, continuing:

"The reason I'm blogging about my feet is that I'm so grateful for the 53 years of great service they've given me. And if this hadn't happened, I would be coasting along, not realizing what a gift it is to have something I'd taken for granted all my life. Thanks to my neurosurgeon, the nurses, and my physiotherapists, I can walk quite decently."

We love the optimism! It's always a good idea to look at the bright side!

Annie Lennox Addresses Talk Of Lady GaGa Copying Her Style

Filed under: Fashion SmashionAdeleLady GaGa

annie-lennox-talks-lagy-gaga.jpg

Lady GaGa has recently been accused of copying Annie Lennox’s style with her stage persona of male Jo Calderone at the VMAs.

And during a recent interview with Stylist, Annie reveals her thoughts:

Recently, Lady Gaga was accused of copying your look with her stage persona, Jo Calderone.
Gaga makes incredible art. She’s exceptional. The parallel was obvious, but whether she was copying me or somebody else doesn’t make any difference. Women have been wearing men’s clothes for centuries. It’s a powerful thing when a woman wears something less feminine. It’s saying; you must look at me slightly differently, I’m not just going to be a sexual object for you. The only thing with Gaga is, she doesn’t move me. I see a lot of commerce in people’s lives; a lot of drive and ambition, but what I often feel is lacking is emotion. That’s what I love about Adele.

So when Adele wears a very paired down look of just black…
It’s so refreshing. People are reminded what it’s about. We want to be touched. We don’t need all the fripperies and excesses. We just want her voice. The problem with Gaga is, the burnout possibilities are very high. It’s like how hard do you have to work to flog that? How hard is it to be different every single day? I wouldn’t want that kind of burden.

Do U agree with Annie??? Share your thoughts with us below.

What a gorgeous girl! We’re going to be seeing so much more of her for sure.

Annie Lennox’s talent and grace has been passed down to her daughter, Tali Lennox, who you can see here, modeling Julien Macdonald's latest line for Debenhams.

The 17-year-old is just starting out, but already she’s walked the catwalk for Prada, Burberry and Missoni. For Julien, Tali will be the face of his High Street line, Diamond, which features primarily evening wear.

What fantastic looks! We love the 80s hair and this one dress with the oversized corsage! Chic!

Rumor has it Tali’s next big endorsement will be Burberry, following in the steps of Emma Watson, Kate Moss and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Check out more of her looks below!

Filed under: Inspiration

wenn2768218al.jpg

Excellent!

Singer Annie Lennox was named a UN AIDS goodwill ambassador today, pledging to address the "daily brutality faced by millions of women and girls" who suffer from the disease.

No stranger to advocacy for AIDS research, her "SING" campaign raises awareness for AIDS-infected women in southern Africa. She says:

“If we are to end the cycle of human devastation triggered by the AIDS epidemic, we must address the rights of women and girls and challenge their second class citizen status, which puts them at greater risk of HIV.”

YES!

Good for Annie!

Meow! Annie Lennox vs Simon Cowell

Filed under: American IdolSimon Cowell

wenn5438897al.jpg

This is a little dramatic don't you think?

Annie Lennox has come forth to criticize Simon Cowell's TV talent shows such as American Idol and The X Factor. She says:

"I think those types of shows are dangerous and cruel - they'll have a long-lasting effect on how people look at music. I understand their appeal, but there's no chance I'd ever be a judge. You have a panel of people basically giving you the thumbs up or down, and there's so much more to music than that."

That's show business, lady!

Especially when it comes to making music for the masses like those shows!
