    Annie Lennox spoke to Bobbi Brown of Yahoo on why she decided not to have her face retouched on the cover of her new album Nostalgia, saying, "I find it disturbing. If I were going to do some work, which I mean, again, I haven't done it yet, I might. But if I did, I wouldn’t want to end up with this frozen mask, which is Botox, which is surgery. I think, the day they get it right will be the day that you can't really tell."

    "For a while, actually, when my children were very young, I grew my hair out. I didn't dye it any color," she said about her look a few years back. "I wore glasses and a T-shirt and jeans, and I just became a frumpish kind of mother, because I just couldn't bear the scrutiny. I don’' want it. I don’' ask for it. When I perform, that's what I do as a performer, but I don't want to be under the limelight."

    She also spoke about her activism, saying, "I felt that I couldn't just stand back and do nothing, so I became a very committed HIV/AIDS campaigner, particularly as it affects women and children. I didn't see evidence of an amplified voice in the global press."
