‘You guys keep me young ’

Gla­dys Knight de­nies ru­mours of cos­metic surgery

Standard-Freeholder (Cornwall) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Soul le­gend Gla­dys Knight has dis­missed on­line gos­sip about her age­less looks after beauty ex­perts sug­gested she had un­der­gone a facelift be­fore the Gram­mys.

The Mid­night Train to Ge­or­gia singer wowed the me­dia and celebri­ties alike when she showed up at mu­sic mogul Clive Davis’ an­nual Grammy Awards eve party last month look­ing 20 years younger than 73.

Ru­mours sug­gest­ing she’d had some work done be­gan spread­ing on­line, and now Knight has taken to so­cial me­dia to in­sist she just looks after her­self.

“I feel like I won a medal with all the com­pli­ments,” she cap­tioned an In­sta­gram shot of her­self look­ing flawless. “You guys keep me young.

“Thank­ful for these God given genes and clean liv­ing. My ac­tiv­ity of choices has been ten­nis (sic). (I’m) work­ing my way up to be as good as Ser­ena Williams and Venus Williams.”

Knight has al­ways been ac­tive and ath­letic — in high school she was a top run­ner who al­most passed on a chance to fol­low her mu­sic dreams with her back­ing band The Pips in favour of at­tend­ing a track meet.

She also raved about her fourth hus­band, Wil­liam McDow­ell, in the In­sta­gram post, in­sist­ing he has “an eye for fashion” and per­haps missed his call­ing as a stylist, adding, “Of course I can’t do this alone, I have the best glam squad and team that keeps me look­ing fresh and on point. My hus­band Wil­liam @for­tune­and­mind has an eye for fashion and helps me with the ma­jor­ity of my looks.”
