Barry Manilow’s New Look Causes a Stir at Tree Lighting Event

Barry Manilow Is Totally Unrecognizable At Tree Lighting

‘Tis the season for joy and celebration, but singer-songwriter Barry Manilow managed to steal the show at the 2023 Rockefeller Christmas tree lighting for a different reason. It wasn’t just his festive performances that had everyone talking, but rather his drastically transformed appearance that left people in shock.

Social media users couldn’t help but comment on Manilow’s unrecognizable face. Some speculated about the work of a talented surgeon, while others made comparisons to Dolly Parton’s well-known cosmetic procedures. However, let’s not forget that it’s important to respect each person’s choices when it comes to their appearance.

While Manilow has denied undergoing cosmetic surgery, his evolving looks have been a topic of discussion for years. In a 2014 interview, he confidently stated that his appearance reflects his age and dismissed any rumors of going under the knife. However, he did admit to having a nose repair after an accident and having his “jowls” removed during surgery to remove facial cysts.

Manilow also shared that his face’s fullness is a result of steroid shots to alleviate hip problems. He even dabbled with Botox but wasn’t satisfied with the outcome, opting not to continue the treatment.

Despite his denials, some doctors and experts have challenged Manilow’s claims. Plastic surgeon Alex Karidis believes that celebrities often come up with elaborate stories to hide their cosmetic procedures. Another expert, Dr. Rita Rakus, noted the substantial changes in Manilow’s face, including volumization in his cheeks and the use of Botox.

Ultimately, it’s essential to remember that celebrities, like everyone else, have the right to make choices about their appearance. Let’s focus on spreading holiday cheer and appreciating the talents and music that have made Barry Manilow a beloved artist for decades. As the saying goes, “If you mind your own business, you’ll stay busy all the time.” Merry Christmas, Barry Manilow!
