Yoko Ono won't retire from music

Yoko Ono will "never" retire from music.

The 83-year-old musician-and-artist's only interest in life is for her art to be "something beautiful" and she's not about to give up her passion even though she's in her mid-eighties.

Asked if she'll ever stop making music, she told the Guardian newspaper: "I won't stop. No, I never think that. Artists are obsessive, they want to keep doing it. And I'm an artist. My sole interest is in creating something beautiful. When I say beautiful .... well, the maximum beauty can be ugly to some people."

Yoko - who is the widow of the late Beatle legend John Lennon - recently picked up the NME Inspiration Award and said she hopes her work continues to influence other artists.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I want to keep on making music and art and keep on inspiring people. But I don't know what my fans take from what I do with my work and my website, I just keep dishing out things and I hope for the best, but I never know how people will react to what I do."

The 'Give Peace a Chance' hitmaker has just released her new collaborative LP featuring the likes of Moby, Death Cab For Cutie and Sparks called 'Yes, I'm A Witch Too'.
