    Default Has Barry Manilow had help holding back the years?

    Perhaps the startled look on Barry Manilow's remarkably smooth features came after he caught sight of himself in a mirror.



    The slightly scary-looking version of the 64-year-old singer amazed guests at an Aids charity gala in New York when he appeared with a wrinkle-free complexion that you could almost hear squeak.

    While his hair may be less bouffant and his permatan a shade less orange, the impeccably-groomed Manilow nevertheless managed to look more like a man half his age. Scroll down for more...
    Holding back the years: Barry Manilow, at a gala in New York last night, appears to have FEWER wrinkles than in 2003


    Smooth operator: Barry's youthful appearance prompted speculation he may have gone under the knife

    Airbrushed: Barry now resembles a heavily retouched promotional image released in 2006




    Inevitably, the taut skin and wide-eyed look prompted speculation he may have had a helping hand in turning back the clock.
    It was a striking contrast to his appearance five years ago when the Copacabana singer had crows' feet around his eyes and a touch of grey at the temples.
    Four years ago Manilow - who still draws in the crowds with weekly concerts at the Las Vegas Hilton - was thought to have undergone a complete facelift.
    He was spotted leaving a Beverly Hills clinic in a disguise which included a woman's wig, oversized sunglasses and a baseball cap.
    Manilow became a star during the 1970s, selling more than 75million records, and recording hits such as Mandy and Weekend in New England.
    At one stage he had five albums in the charts simultaneously and his boyish good looks beamed out from the covers. His more recent albums have struggled in comparison but Manilow's youthful appearance at Thursday night's gala dinner shows the singer has little intention of accepting an inevitable decline.

    Oh yes. He's been done to death. And it's not doing him
    any favors imo. He looks very scary.

    Hell yes, he's had PLENTY done, but I couldn't care less. The man gave us Copacabana, for crying out loud.

    *hums*

    Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
    With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
    She would merengue and do the cha-cha
    And while she tried to be a star, Tony always tended bar
    Across a crowded floor, they worked from 8 till 4
    They were young and they had each other
    Who could ask for more?

    At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
    The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
    At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
    Music and passion were always the fashion
    At the Copa....they fell in love

    (Copa Copacabana)

    His name was Rico, he wore a diamond
    He was escorted to his chair, he saw Lola dancin' there
    And when she finished, he called her over
    But Rico went a bit too far, Tony sailed across the bar
    And then the punches flew and chairs were smashed in two
    There was blood and a single gun shot
    But just who shot who?

    At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
    The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
    At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
    Music and passion were always the fashion
    At the Copa....she lost her love

    (Copa. . Copacabana)
    (Copa Copacabana) (Copacabana, ahh ahh ahh ahh)
    (Ahh ahh ahh ahh Copa Copacabana)
    (Talking Havana have a banana)
    (Music and passion...always the fash--shun)

    Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl
    But that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show
    Now it's a disco, but not for Lola
    Still in the dress she used to wear, faded feathers in her hair
    She sits there so refined, and drinks herself half-blind
    She lost her youth and she lost her Tony
    Now she's lost her mind!

    At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana (Copacabana)
    The hottest spot north of Havana (here)
    At the Copa (CO!), Copacabana
    Music and passion were always the fashion
    At the Copa....don't fall in love

    (Copa) don't fall in love

    It's just so hard looking at him lately.
    He looks so stretched out.
    BTW, he has never publicly come out
    has he? He is gay right? Lol!

    Bazza seems to be channelling the equally heterosexual Clay Aiken and it totally works for me.
