Will L. Lo age gracefully?

You see a lot of ads with pretty, post-menopausal ladies talking about aging gracefully. There's Sally Field telling you how to keep your bones strong, Andie McDowell telling you how to keep your hair from going grey, and Diane Keaton telling you to buy some other old lady product.

This got me thinking...

What will these ads be like in 50 years, when today's budding starlets have aged gracefully.

I'm afraid that in 2056, we'll see Pamela Anderson-Lee-Rock-Hasselhoff-Swayze-Trump schilling for discount tattoo removal, Britney Spears in absinthe ads, and my honey of honeys Lindsay Lohan selling OTC hepatitis-C medication.

Be still my heart.

But why is it that only the schlock lands the big endorsement deals?

Imagine Jimi Hendrix as the frontman for iTunes, instead of Bono the Gaelic Goober. Or Joey Ramone plugging his axe into a new VW, instead of the empty vessel known as Slash.

How cool would it be to see an 80-year-old James Dean behind the wheel of a Boxster??

At least we're spared the sight of a twiggy Karen Carpenter selling liquid meal replacements.

Thanks to the wonders that are Botox and lipo they'll all probably still look the same, although it's doubtful they'll be able to move their mouths or eyebrows. Except poor Tara Reid who paid thousands of dollars for a stomach she just could have gotten with more beer.

I am wondering who's going to be the big, commercial, Super-Bowl playing band once the Rolling Stones, U2, et al retire/die.

Coldplay is the only replacement I can think og.
