Blondie star reveals fear of death

Blondie star reveals fear of death

Debbie Harry is scared of dying.

The 65-year-old Blondie frontwoman does not think she will ever retire because she wants to cram as much into her life as she can.

She said: "I don't know if there's anything I'm really scared of other than mortality. I feel that I've achieved a lot but I don't want to stop.

"I want to keep doing things. I don't want to retire. I know that I can't front a pop or rock band forever but I would certainly like to keep writing or maybe start a clothing business."

The 'Rapture' singer does not believe in life after death so she thinks it is important to live the life you have been given to the full.

She added to Attitude magazine: "Unfortunately, I don't think anything happens when we die. I know that there's energy involved and that the energy comes out of you.

"As far as it being personified or being a personality, I couldn't really say. I couldn't say what happens to that energy.

"How does that make me feel about this life? Make it as good as possible."
