Chrissie Hynde’s fearless ageing

Chrissie Hynde has no concerns about getting older.

The 57-year-old singer accepts the fact she is going through the ageing process but insists it doesn’t worry her because it happens to everyone.

The Pretenders frontwoman said: “I don’t mind getting older; I mind getting uglier. You know – knees, disease, old age, death. I’m a wreck. Frankly, who else cares? No one else does. No one else in the world is out there saying, ‘It’s a tragedy she’s getting older.’ So why bring yourself down?”

Chrissie also believes her career has lasted a long time because it has never been solely based on her looks.

She told Britain’s Stella magazine: “I can’t believe it every day when I wake up and think, ‘It’s still happening.’ The world around changes all the time – the industry, clearly everything is changing – but I just stay the same. I’m on my own little path and I’m still doing it.”
