If you’re planning to pick up Kenny Rogers’ new memoir, don’t expect to be reading about all the plastic surgery the star has undergone; all mention of cosmetic surgery has been dropped from the book.
However, this is not an overly vain decision from Rogers himself. Indeed, the 74-year-old country legend told Fox News that he was more than happy to publicly discuss the surgery yet was advised by his publishers to leave out a section of his experiences beneath the surgeon’s knife.
The singer, who had plastic surgery on numerous occasions, has previously admitted to being regretful about the results. Speaking to Fox, he revealed:
“Yeah I regret the results of the eye job but quite honestly I don’t know what I’d look like if I hadn’t done it and it may have been way worse. I actually had written a whole segment on it but the publishers said, ‘Let’s not do that, that’s all people will talk about,’ and this book is about my journey and my musical connections. It was a phase I went through. I improved myself. I didn’t like the way he did my eyes but I see all these other guys who have had it done and theirs are worse than mine. I’m not going to complain anymore.”
Elsewhere in the a wide-ranging interview, Rogers talks about his first love, sex scandals, blowing through his fortune, and his 46-year-old wife Wanda. There’s no denying that the man has stories to tell.
Rogers’ memoir, Luck or Something Like It, was released on October 2. Think you’ll be picking it up?
