1960s pop star Sandie Shaw undergoes ‘foot lift’ surgery


Yesteryear’s pop star Sandie Shaw recently went under the knife in a bid to have beautiful feet. According to the Daily Mail, the singer, who rose to fame after her barefoot performances in the 1960s, opted to give having a facelift a miss, instead choosing to have a ‘foot lift’. The star who calls her new feet divine explains that it was an endeavor to get rid of her ugly feet.

She said, “I had my bunions taken away, I had one toe shortened, one toe straightened. It was a full foot lift – they are divine!” she goes on to say that removing bunions is a growing trend among US women who need to give certain footwear a miss due to discomfort and bleeding problems.

As reported by Metro, Sandie Shaw, who in 1967 was the first contestant from the UK to win the Eurovision Song Contest, revealed that her “misshapen” feet were not the result of her barefoot performances but rather that they were inherited. The former singer, who trained to be a psychotherapist in the 1990s, swears by the bunion surgery. She went on to say, “Bunion surgery is very common, with one in three people developing one at some time in their lives. It is more common in women than men. She added that she had “swollen, misshapen, yellow and bruised appendages on the ends of my legs”.

Other celebrities who have had surgery include include Tara Reid, Demi Moore, Dita von Teese and Pamela Anderson.
