Maye Musk, the mother of billionaire Elon Musk, who is 74 years old and a model by trade, just made history by appearing in a swimsuit on the cover of Sports Illustrated. Maye is 74 years old and she is the oldest person to appear on the cover of the famous magazine.
With this opportunity she also delivers a message for women everywhere: ” When women go to the beach we have some reservations about our body, but when men go they have no problems. Even if they look awful they simply don’t care” Maye Musk told People Magazine. ” I think we shouldn’t care so much” she added.
Elon Musk is a billionaire and very well known in the world but Maye was also in the spotlight back in the day. She started working as a model when she was 15 years old while she was living in South Africa and she was a finalist of the Miss South Africa beauty pageant in 1969.
However her popularity grew in the last few years after she posed nude in 2011 for Time’s magazine Health section. At the age of 65 she made an appearance in Beyonce’s “Haunted” video.
“I never believed age will be a problem. As a dietician and scientist I think age is not a problem” Maye Musk told Sports Illustrated. ” I am happy that people challenge me to talk about age and about how you feel about yourself at any age. I am also very proud that I can send a message to women everywhere to be happy, to do the things they like and to surround themselves with good people, to be kind to everybody, because you never know where you might end up. I am living the best time of my life and I never expected this” Maye Musk said.
