Cilla Black Quotes
, 1943 -
I've had a blessed life. I've pulled back from trying to control my destiny and gone back to accepting whatever fate has in store for me. I live for today because I don't know what'll happen tomorrow.
The nicest thing about coming of age is that I can do whatever I like.
It's true what they say: 'You don't appreciate what you've got until it's gone.' I miss love. I miss being looked after.
I've got a bike in the lounge that I watch Coronation Street on. I never had to watch my weight until I had the children, but with the bike, I'm fine.
It's hard to watch your life unfold, and sad. Life changes.
I don't like the selfie because it's too close. There ain't no people with arms long enough to do a selfie of me.
I love books and the latest autobiographies. I'm a Gemini and love being with people, but then again, I love my own company, which is when I read most.
I loved everything about show business, meeting the stars, the whole ambience. I was living every young kid's dream. I was told a pop singer's life was three years, but I was still making money seven years later.
If I can't eat the meal in a restaurant, and the waiter asks, 'Is everything all right, Madam?', I tell them that I'm on a diet.
'Blind Date' was my lifeline. It was 90 minutes when I could forget about everything, forget about the world.
I helped make the Sixties swing, and I'm very proud of that.
I never did acid, I am just so high anyway.
Back when I was helping put the swing into the swinging '60s, I used to hang out with Cathy McGowan. We'd be doing 'Ready Steady Go!' on T.V., and Biba used to make our dresses. We'd be in the flat in Cromwell Road on Friday night, just before the live show, and they'd still be sewing.
I've had days when I go in my bedroom for 24 hours at a time. I call them my Cilla Black days, and they're literally black days. It's like the old Boomtown Rats song 'I Don't Like Mondays.' You just want to shut the whole day down.
The best advice he gave me was to carry on. It would have been difficult to set foot back inside a TV studio if I hadn't carried on - I don't know if I would have ever gone back in.
Well it has been very exciting and very changing as well. Celebrating the 40th year and having the album out and the Channel 4 documentary and I resigned from Blind Date.
Nothing is a career move. Everything I've done this year has so not been a career move.
I had to do the book because there was an unauthorised biography which didn't tell it like it was.
I humbly apologise for reality Television.
But reality television is here to stay.
I did smoke a joint once but I did not enjoy it.
The difference with me is that I did inhale.
It was an unknown thing, a lot of people had very bad trips and I like to be in control.
I don't want to see older people on T.V. I want to see young, pretty people on T.V.
'Blind Date' was based on an Australian show called 'Perfect Match', which I first saw when I was on tour there. And I couldn't understand why it wasn't on British T.V.
I never thought I'd be on T.V. For me as a kid in Liverpool, it was a more realistic option to be a singer.
