Popular Turkish singer who shot to fame in Turkey in the 1970s after appearing in films, has finally revealed the secrets behind her glamorous looks
Ajda Pekkan has credited her diet for her incredible looks at the age of 71
A stunning 71-year-old Turkish singer, Ajda Pekkan, who shot to fame in Turkey in the 1970s, says she looks half her age thanks to her diet – of kebabs.
The pretty grand-mother who revealed the secrets behind her glamorous looks in an interview with local media, told reporters that in addition to regular workouts, a boob job and anti-ageing spas in Switzerland, her “healthy diet” kept her in shape.
Ajda said: “I am always very careful about what I am eating. I can't say I limit my choice in food. I like kebab and fish.”
“I'm walking, drinking a lot of water. I cannot think of life without water. Every morning I drink ginger-lemon-honey mixture in a glass of water.
“I never wanted to be a beautiful woman figure. But I always protect my body. Genetics and sport are very important to stay in shape.”
According to The Sun UK, last year, Ajda was one of four of Turkey’s “most powerful women” to be invited to the US for “The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Power 100” event.
She appeared alongside women from other countries such as A-listers Susan Sarandon, Emma Stone and Jessica Lange. But despite her advancing years, Ajda says she is also now thinking about having a baby.
She told local media she had already consulted with US and Indian doctors about artificial fertilisation.
