image for Barbie is 53 Years Old, Takes Up Zumba
Her hair and her body have needed a little work!

To show the world that she's still in great shape, the famous Mattel doll has taken up Zumba, the Latin dance fitness craze that's sweeping the U.S.

Dressed in sexy, curve-fitting exercise togs, her blonde locks in a perky ponytail, she was spotted taking a Zumba class at a Manhattan dance studio. Observers report that she was jiving to the Latin music as well as kicking faster, higher, and with more enthusiasm than classmates half her age. At the end of class she signed autographs for a crowd of admirers and scoffed at rumors that she was too old to cut the mustard anymore. She said she agrees with Mark Twain who once commented: "Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."

But those in the know say that behind the scenes, it's another story. Barbie has had cosmetic surgery on her eyelids, a tummy tuck, and numerous botox treatments. In addition, she will probably need knee replacement surgery within the next year or two. Her medicine chest looks like an ad for the cosmetics industry. It's packed with items such as: anti-wrinkle creams, hair dye, skin softeners, etc. You get the picture.

Barbie's favorite book at the moment? How Not To Look Old by Charla Krupp.

The ever-young doll has told friends that what Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote comforts her: "The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles."

You go, girl!
