"I feel great," the star declared. "I've never been defined by a number or my age. And I've never felt better."
"This whole year is going to be about 50," she added. "My Instagram is going to be blown up with what 50 looks like, feels like, thinks like. It's going to be a '50 year' for me and I cannot wait."
