“Little ditty about Jack and Diane
Two American kids growin’ up in the heartland
Jackie gonna be a football star
Diane debutante backseat of Jackie’s car”

We all know it and love it!  Could John Mellencamp and Christie Brinkley at 64 and 61 be finding their own Jack and Diane moment – at the other end of the cycle from this song?  Will Mellencamp create a new set of music to reflect the later love of his life? Will Brinkley settled down with another musician for another phase of her life?

The pair have been caught out on a date again, this time in New York’s west village.  Ripped jeans and leather was Brinkley’s attire of choice, and Mellencamp chose to wear glasses on his head, in an odd looking way, keeping his rockstar cool in a simple sweater and jeans according to press reports.

They’ve been a watching brief for the media since they started dating in what seems to be mid September.  There’s been numerous sightings and press moments in public.  Both have had decades in the public eye and significant relationships that have ended long ago.  Christie Brinkley is famously Billy Joel’s Uptown Girl.  Mellencamp meanwhile is said to have been in a 3 year relationship with Meg Ryan as recently as a year ago.

  1. A bit silly really – she may be 60 , but there’s no way she looks anywhere near it – unlike the rest of us unresourced mere mortals

    • I don’t think it’s silly, I think it’s nice they enjoy each others company & perhaps romance, never to old.

  2. I think she’s aging, but I ‘d love some of whatever she’s using to get that youthful face. Elle McPherson is the same. Whoever invented it is clearly making a fortune.

  3. Not gonna work. She has 4 failed marriages and he has 3. They are poster kids for people who should never marry again. She is obsessed with how she looks, he is obsessed with himself.
