Lulu: Retirement is a dirty word

Lulu takes care of herself and has no plans to retire

Singer Lulu has said she has no intention of retiring any time soon.

The star, 64, now a grandmother, has been in the spotlight for five decades.

"I have a singing coach, go to throat specialists regularly to get checked over, so that I can keep going," Lulu said.

"To me, retire is a dirty word. Music really makes me happy, it's who I am, and I don't know what I'd do if I didn't do it.

"Of course, when I'm 95 I might have to be dignified and go, 'Oh, stop, this is ridiculous', but for now I'm keeping going."

The Shout! singer admitted that "ageing is tough".

"In my head, I think I'm 30, so it shocks me when there's an ache or a pain... But I'm 100 per cent healthy and I look after myself now. I haven't had surgery, I just make sure I care for my skin. I do pilates and dance classes so I keep moving, that's so important."

Lulu, who is currently single, said she's "not bothered" about the possibility of another relationship.

"If I was really looking for someone, I think I'd find them. Of course, sometimes I feel lonely, but who doesn't?" she said
