I used to be a big fan, but lately not so much. I'm still intrigued by her. I think she's still interesting. But I am so sick of hearing about the Kaballah, and I'm so sick of how seriously she takes herself. Also, even though she looks great for 50 -- the fact remains that she is still indeed 50! I think it's a little sad to see someone her age trying to act like they are still 25. I'm torn. I think she's a very good entertainer overall. But I guess I had thought that by the time she reached 50 she would have gained some perspective or something. But her ego only seems to have gotten bigger and she seems to have only gotten more annoying or something. But then it is impossible to imagine what it is like to be her; compared to the only other two superstars of her era to share her stature -- Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston -- I suppose she has turned out pretty well. She isn't a drug addict and she hasn't been accused of child molestation. I suppose I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for her because she was such an icon of my youth and so important to my generation, but I just don't find her that interesting anymore. I think I grew up. Sometimes I wish she would too.
