53-Year-Old Prince's Anti-Aging Secrets Include Sugar Cubes, Candles, And Not Celebrating Birthdays

A recent Guardian interview with Prince is flush with soundbites. But scattered among his opinions on music ("I am music.") and burqas ("It's fun being in Islamic countries, to know there's only one religion. You wear a burqa."), we couldn't help noticing the 53-year-old rocker's very interesting take on finding the fountain of youth. When asked about his seemingly ageless look, "Prince embark[ed] on a baroque explanation that takes in an illustration of celestial mechanics involving a candle (the sun) and a sugar cube (the Earth); DNA research; his late father's Alzheimer's disease; the reason he doesn't celebrate his birthday ('If you look in the Bible there's no birthdays'); the importance of study; God's concept of time; and the Purple Rain tour. 'Time is a mind construct,' he finally concludes, setting his candle and sugarcube aside. 'It's not real.'" We'll stick with our bottle of anti-aging moisturizer, thanks. (The Guardian)
