After celebrating her 70th birthday, Grammy winner Patti LaBelle tells Closer Weekly in an exclusive interview she is feeling more fabulous than ever!
“Age has no number,” Patti says in the new issue. “I mean, what does 70 feel like? I just know that I feel great! I have this wonderful feeling that 70 is going to be even better than 20 and 30!”
Still, Patti admits life could be even more fun if she had a special someone to share her success with. “Would I be open to dating again? Of course!” she says. “I’m not dead!”
When asked if friends, like Oprah Winfrey, have set her up on any dates, Patti tells Closer, “No! But they might do it in the future. Whoever he is, I know he’ll find me. I can really handle myself now that I’m 70!”
And as for online dating? “No way! I don’t even have a cellphone!” Patti tells the mag with a laugh. “I’m not looking, honey. If it’s in the air and it feels right I’ll know it.”
Right now, the "If Only You Knew" singer has her hands full wrapping up her guest turn in Broadway's After Midnight.
“I sing, I dance, there’s some choreography — I’m kicking my legs…at 70!” she boasts.
