chart-topping songstress don five new outfits created by long-time costume designer Bob Mackie.
The legendary performer will be wearing a newly-created opening costume on the tour's return but went on social networking site Twitter yesterday to express her worry that - even for her - it may be too revealing: "Finished at Bob's. I'm really nervous regarding the opening costume. It's so bare in a place that I'm not used to.
"Need to rethink it. If I was only 58, maybe I wouldn't be so frightened! It was all going swimmingly until it was finished - ahh... No front."
The fitness icon then asked fans, whom she affectionately calls "Crew": "One thing before I go, Crew, could you find it in your hearts to give up any amount of meat every week? If not, I totally understand but meat hurts the environment."
The concerned star returned to the site today to add, "Meat's really bad for you - causes strokes, cancer and heart attacks. Two servings of red meat a day raises death risk by 13%. 51% of greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture."
"I'm not telling you what to do but please read results about eating red meat - full of hormones and antibiotics! I've seen the look in the eyes of slaughtered animals. No food in the world can erase that look. I can't eat meat - it makes me sick. Just think about it - that's all. I don't gain anything by warning you."
