Ever wonder how Blondie‘s Debbie Harry stays so foxy even at 67 years of age? It’s simple. Mechanics. Instead of having children and putting mileage on her body, the fit frontwoman has gone childless with her life partner Chris Stein and says she doesn’t “need children” for fulfillment.

“I’m certainly not the only woman in the world who never had children,” said Harry to The Edit via Music-News.com. “There are many reasons why Chris and I didn’t. We were working very hard, we were happy and we didn’t feel a need. And I always thought: there are a lot of children in the world. I didn’t need to add to that, you know?”

Aging hasn’t gotten her down. Harry recognizes the roller-coaster that is life and says that sometimes she wins and sometimes she loses but she just has to “deal with it.”

“What else can I do?,” laughed Harry. “I’ve had an incredible life so far. I can’t complain at all.”

In a not very punk rock move, Harry recently expressed flattery when British boy band One Direction covered Blondie’s song “One Way Or Another.”
