Why we’re fulla love for Anastacia – plus a quiz about her specs appeal

Just a few days ago Anastacia announced a 2017 UK tour and we couldn’t be happier!

The Ultimate Collection Tour supporting her second greatest hits compilation, 2015’s Ultimate Collection, will see her perform 14 dates across the UK beginning on 24 May in Basingstoke and ending on 11 June in Brighton.

“I am really looking forward to getting back on the road again,” said Anastacia. “I love performing and can’t wait to see all my fans’ beautiful faces!”

And we’re crushing on the pop star too.

Of course, we admire her musical talent. Since Anastacia’s debut back in 2000, she’s sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Her voice and songs like I’m Outta Love and Left Outside Alone have become timeless.

We’ve also enjoyed watching Anastacia on this season of Strictly Come Dancing – especially her Halloween-themed jive to Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell. Although she was eliminated earlier this week, she’ll always have a top spot on our leaderboard.

More than a hitmaker, Anastacia is woman with a genuine heart. She’s fought breast cancer twice and now does everything she can to raise awareness and funds for research. While Anastacia was on Strictly Come Dancing, she announced a partnership with Cancer Research UK and made a personal donation to the charity.

Last but not least, we love Anastacia’s style. Whatever she wears she rocks it! What’s more, Anastacia is a specs goddess. Thanks to laser eye surgery she no longer needs to wear her trademark tinted glasses, but she frequently still does. Check out her bright red shades in the photo above.

And this brings us to our quiz… 

Can you identify which music video each bespectacled Anastacia below appears in?
