This Go-Go is in her 50’s but still goin’ strong. As lead singer of The Go-Go’s, Belinda Carlisle helped the band sell more than 7 million albums in just 3 years. Not only were they successful, but The Go-Go’s were the first all-female group whose members wrote their own songs and played all the instruments. Belinda went on to a prosperous solo career featuring hits like “Mad About You” and “Heaven is a Place on Earth.” She released her autobiography in 2010 entitled Lips Unsealed. Today (8/17) is Belinda’s birthday. She shares her special day with actor Sean Penn. He went from playing a stoner in Fast Times at Ridgemont High to winning Oscars for his work in Mystic River and Milk. Sean married Madonna in 1985 and instantly became a prime target of paparazzi. He spent some time in jail for assaulting a photo-bug who got too close. Penn and the Material Girl divorced in 1989.
Both Belinda and Sean are in their 50’s. Who’s older?
