How old is Robert Plant?
On VH1 Fresh Start this morning I watched the video of Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. I love them both and this is a great duet and a fun video. But, it got me thinking about the way men have no problem, no matter how old they get, wearing what ever they want and no one makes any remarks. I mean can you see a women in her sixties wearing tight jeans, pointy cowboy boots, total rocker hair and her shirt unbuttoned dancing to a music video? Ok, Tina Turner is the exception.
But Robert Plant looked just as cool as ever. I don’t get it.
I find myself in my forties asking…Can I wear that skirt? Is it too short? Should I cut my hair, is it too young looking? Maybe I should tone down my personality a bit, I am someone’s mother.
I don’t think that Robert Plant, David Bowie, Steven Tyler or Prince ask themselves these questions.
What is the deal???
