Anastacia: 'I went Botox crazy'

ANASTACIA went "crazy for Botox" in her younger years.

The 47-year-old singer has admitted she overused the cosmetic treatment during her 30s, but realised she needed to stop shortly after her divorce from former bodyguard Wayne Newton in 2010.

She shared: "I went crazy for Botox in my 30s.

"I would get it done every three months. But right after my divorce, I realised I needed to stop.

"Now I love seeing my face move. I did it all too early and it was too much. Now I love a ponytail. When the hair is pulled back, I feel like Young-a-stacia."

Despite this, the 'I'm Outta Love' singer has refused to rule out having more work done in the future.

She told MailOnline: "I don't think I have to do anything now, but I don't think I would be scared of it. This area [her forehead] is still looked at by a maintenance programme."

What's more, the sexy singer also opened up about her decision to claim she was 22 when she was in fact 30, at the start of her career.

She confessed: "I went on a television show and you had to be under 29.

"Sony didn't ever make me do it. I went along with it for years, but I told the truth when I went to another label. I felt so guilty.

"Journalists would be asking me when I was born and how old my sister was and I would panic. But everyone [in the industry] does it.

"I thought that was what you were supposed to do. I thought it meant that I had made it. But I really don't know how people can keep up with the lie."
