Not that Barry Manilow's getting old or anything, but he's going to have a double hip operation.

It seems he's got a labrum tear; his people are very keen to stress this is the sort of thing that dogs professional sports people and not in any way like a hip replacement.

"I'm anxious to make it through the Emmy Awards and then right to the hospital," Manilow said. "The Doctors have promised me that I'll come back even better than before. And I can't wait to hit the stage again."

Although, presumably, he'll be less likely to suffer from falls if his hips get fixed.
