Lionel Richie recently trended on social media when a snap of himself and his 30-year-old girlfriend surfaced on social media.

The legendary US singer has a daughter who is older than Lisa. Nicole Richie is 39 years of age while her young sis, Sofia Richie, is 22.
Lisa is originally from Switzerland but now lives in the US with her bae. Twitter users have shared mixed reactions to Lionel Richie's romantic relationship with Lisa. Check out some of their comments below:
"Whaatttt!!! Lionel Richie with his new Bae, he's 71 and she's 30, yaani Lionel was 40 when this beautiful woman was born. Brothers don't be in a hurry to marry, maybe your soul mate isn't born yet."
"Lionel Richie inspires me to never give up on love, that I can find true love from granddaughter's friend."
"Lionel Richie, 71, and his Bae, Lisa Parigi, 30, I call it love."
"For two seconds let’s ignore the fact that she was probably conceived to a Lionel Richie song and concentrate on how great this man looks at 71."
"Personally I don't have an issue with age but Lionel Richie is dating someone younger than his daughter, that to me is problematic."
"Of all of the sugar daddies in the world, Lionel Richie is a top tier choice."
The Daily Show took to Twitter on 21 February to wish the host of the show a happy birthday. The show posted a clip of the superstar roasting the traditional birthday song. The Daily Show captioned the post:
"Happy Birthday @trevornoah, who would like you to take a moment to consider the happy birthday song."
In the clip, Trevor revealed that he never grew up singing the traditional birthday song. He said his mom used to sing Stevie Wonder's Happy Birthday and later sang him Donald Duck's birthday song. The TV personality said Disney made their own version of the song in the 80s to celebrate Donald's birthday.
Trevor expressed that the traditional birthday song is like a "death song". He said the song is depressing and is one of the saddest songs he has ever heard.
"It doesn't seem like fun at all."
