[ICYMI]- To retire or not to retire? That is the question on the Kaya Central #Awesome4some
They came, they sang, they conquered, they retired & returned to conquer again! Back in 2003, Jay Z put on a retirement concert at Madison Square Garden. The show was the subject of the documentary “Fade to Black,” but as we all know, it didn’t last. Jay Z’s retirement was short-lived and he returned with the album “Kingdom Come” in 2006.
Understandably there comes a point in one’s professional musical career where one should spare fans the torture and retire their spandex one pieces (*cough cough* Beyonce) because on-stage midlife crisis’s should not be forced on any music fan! It is undoubtedly difficult to watch your favourite artists hanging up the towel but there’s also only so much of lip-syncing to “work,work,work,work,work,work!” one can do so retirement is a welcome relief. The artists featured on this afternoon’s #Awesome4some however pulled a David Copperfield on their retirement plans & escaped to provide us with many more years of spandex hip-swinging.
Money, fame and fortune may just be the route of all evil but these celebs can’t seem to get enough:
