Happy birthday to the ever-honest Tracey Emin, 50 years old today and still speaking about love as sensitively and openly as always. “I think as you get older, love is a very different emotional feeling to when you were 15, or when you were 30,” she has said. “When you’re 50, and a woman as well ... you feel very differently about love and about sex and about lust. What I want now is that warmth, that coziness, affection, trust, all of those kinds of things. I start off with them first, and then work my way, eh, down.”
