Shirley Bassey to announce shock retirement from music?

Bassey created a stir on Saturday when rumors have surfaced that her career was over.

Sad news for Bassey fans. Speculation had been rife that the Welsh singer best known for recording the theme song to Diamonds Are Forever or Goldfinger, will announce her retirement from music, at age 84, with immediate effect.

UPDATE 11/04/2021 : This story seems to be false. (read more)

Being a singer isn't fun anymore

“As we get older, there are phases of life that we enter into, and being a singer just isn't fun anymore,” she might have said, says a source who remained anonymous. Other reports hinted that she may branch out into other creative fields she is better at (and more interested in), though they didn't provide any details.


For a little while on Saturday evening, #ThankYouShirley was a trending hashtag on Twitter. As many fans reminisce and look back on all the unforgettable memories, some may wonder what about now made her make the decision.

“You’ve accomplished everything I ever dreamed of #ThankYouShirley.”
