Go To
I'm outta love set me free and let me out this misery,
Just show me the way to get my life again,
'Cause you can't handle me,
Said I'm outta love can't you see,
Baby that you gotta set me free, I'm outta love.
"I'm Outta Love"

Anastacia Lyn Newkirk (born September 17, 1968) is an American recording artist and singer who first made it big in 1999 with her global smash hit "I'm Outta Love", the second single off of her debut album Not that Kind. Afterwards she went on to become a global super star with two other smash albums 2001's Freak of Nature and 2004's Anastacia. Her international success was immense as she was said to have sold 20 million records by 2005 with just her first three albums alone. However, despite her global success she was never successful in her home country, in fact only one of her songs has even managed to chart on the Hot 100. She then went on to release a greatest hits album, Pieces of A Dream, in 2005 which was met with moderate success. Unfortunately, her career began to slow down after 2008's Heavy Rotation which failed to meet the performance of her previous three albums. In 2012 she released a cover album titled It's a Man's World and followed it up with two further studio albums, Resurrection in 2014 and Evolution in 2017.

  • Bathing Beauty. In the mid-section of the video for "One Day in Your Life", she is relaxing on a lounger by a pool, but does not join the other characters who are diving and playing in the pool. An elderly neighbour sees the people and tries to spoil their fun by aiming his green hose at the singer, but she simply basks in the improptu hose shower.
  • Bare Midriffs Are Feminine: A common clothing choice, as seen in the page image. She also sported the look in the covers to some of her albums, in her shows and in the video clips for her songs:
    • In the video for her single "Outta Love", she walks on stage with a bright orange ensemble of pants and a crop top that bares her abdomen.
    • In the music video for "One Day in Your Life", she wears a belly-revealing blouse both at the start and at the end of the song; in the middle of the video, she is relaxing on a lounger while in a bikini top and a skirt.
  • Body Paint: She has some tattoes on her back.
  • Cover Version: It's A Mans World was a cover album.
  • The Disease That Shall Not Be Named: She had her first flop album after having breast cancer.
  • Extreme Sports Plot: In the last third of the music video for "One Day in Your Life", Anastacia sings and dances, with interspersed scenes set at sunset: some men running on the beach with their surfboards, people playing volleyball, and people riding bikes and skating on a ramp just behind the singer.
  • Foreshadowing: The music video for "One Day in Your Life" begins by panning from a watercolour-like sunny beach with a sports ramp, then pans to a green yard with a pool nearby, then goes through the window to enter the kitchen area of a house. The sequence then shows the watercolour images are from Anastacia's cereal box. However, the singer is having her meal in the same kitchen area depicted in the cereal box, then goes to relax in the yard by the pool, and ends the video in the outdoor beach area with people riding bikes and skating on the same ramp.
  • Pool Scene: In the second part of the video for "One Day in Your Life", Anastacia is wearing a bikini top and a skirt, while sunbathing on a lounger; nearby, people are coming and going, a woman is playing mini golf, and others are playing basketball in the pool.
  • Smart People Play Chess: In the music video for "One Day in Your Life", at the start of the video, Anastacia is leaning against a pillar, while people are playing chess with stylized acrylic chess pieces.
