Kenny Rogers Ordered To Drop Plastic Surgery Chapter From Memoir

Kenny Rogers Plastic Surgery Chapter Dropped From Memoir

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?

    Creep….You wouldkn't have the good music today if it weren't for Kenny Rogers and the musicians of his time.
    A lot of people care…

    That's the problem with marrying a 31 year old. Fifteen years later she's 46.

    Kenny Rogers was a big star, had some great songs. "You picked a fine time to leave me, Lucille" always made me sing along as many of his songs did. So thank you Kenny, for having brought so much enjoyment to so many.

    Kenny was a handsome, older, distinguished gentleman. The plastic surgery was horrible. The first time I saw him after he had it done, I was only able to recognize his voice to know who it was. :=(

    Kenny is a Sugar Daddy celebrity country swooner with an apetite for young women…….really young women. His next big hit "Why wont you sign the prenupt Lucille?" Pervert.

    you care enough to not only read the article, but take the time to comment as well.

  7. Ray Workman

    Since Plastic Surgery is a part of Kenny Rogers life story, it would be a falsehood, not to include it, in his book. Look at Phyllis Diller and Joan Rivers. They talk freely of their experiences, and did well after.

    I thought this was an article about Kenny Rogers? I don't know who that dude is in the picture, but it can't be Kenny Rogers.

    Kenny Rogers, is a classic! I agree, with him..about the eyes…seems the plastic surgeon got carried away…and pulled the sutures too tight..or remove too much skin from the upper lids. Kenny has made some great music in his life…love the duet with Dolly…"Islands in the Steam" ( I believe it was written by Lionel Ritchie) Also, he had some good duets with Dottie West… Best wishes..Kenny

    Lucy Belle ; have you checked to see what condition your condition is in?

    On behalf of Kenny Rogers I understand why he had his eyes done. His eyes were very deep set. When they correct the problem with excess fat on the eye lid it just looks different. If you'd never seen him before his current look wouldn't seem bad at all. It looks way better than it did at first, when it was pulled very tight.

    COULDN'T care less. Nobody says it right. COULD care less means there's room to care.

    I always wait and get these books at the library. Paying for a book is silly to me. I do like memoirs like this – particularly more on the songwriting process, how songs were created and written. Not so much the sex, drugs, etc., as it's old hat and those stories are all the same. Was kinda let down with Glen Campbell's old memoir, as it was little on songwriting, more on cocaine. That gets tiresome. I like the behind the scenes of the career, getting bandmembers together, playing clubs, audience reaction, coming up with songs, etc. As a musician, these are all difficult things.

    He was one of my very favorites. Lady. I Believe In You. Now there were some real love songs!

    Amazing he would let the sex scandals be publicized yet hide the cosmetic surgery! I don't get it!
