Thanks for explaining that. I was worried she'd had some problems otherwise.
I have noticed she's getting up there. As you age, your bones, it seems to me, shrink. I read that that's why your ears and nose look bigger when you're old (God have mercy). The fat under your skin (unfortunately your face shows it mainly) disappears, causing the skin to sag and drop.
It must be really difficult to keep up that image when you're such a famous person. I saw an online interview, though, where she says she'll "never retire", but I do hope she will finally ditch all that facelifting. Poor dear.
Here's a link to a site I found with several clips of her:
