Pop star admits she's actually about to turn 40

Anastacia has revealed that she has lied to her fans for the past 10 years.

The singer shaved 5 years off her real age when she first found fame – and has only just dropped the pretence.

‘I’m turning 40 and I’m happy to [admit it] because I’ve always lied about my age,’ admits.

Record execs encouraged Anastacia to fib because they thought it would help her image in the youth-obsessed pop business.

‘Every interview I did I had to rethink when I was born, how old my brothers and sisters needed to be,’ she tells Fabulous. ‘I’m thrilled I can finally turn 40.’
