Maye Musk Elon’s mom becomes CoverGirl at 69
Maye Musk—a.k.a. Elon’s mom—has just become a CoverGirl at the age of 69.
Makeup brand CoverGirl announced that the fashion and beauty model—who’s been in the biz for over five decades—is their newest addition to their “lineup of fierce women leading the charge in breaking boundaries in beauty.”
Musk joins the stunning lineup which features 24-year-old Nura Afia, the brand’s first hijabi ambassador, and 17-year-old James Charles, the first male CoverGirl. Not only that, Musk’ll be joining the ranks of Zendaya, Ellen DeGeneres, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift.
In an Instagram post, Musk said she’s “so excited” to announce she’s officially a CoverGirl.
“My three kids, ten grandchildren and I have had the hardest time trying to keep it a secret until today’s big announcement,” she wrote.
“Who knew, after many years of admiring the gorgeous COVERGIRL models, that I would be one at 69 years of age? It just shows, never give up,” she added.
Musk also thanked the makeup brand for including her in its “tribe of diversity.” “Beauty truly is for women of all ages, and I can’t wait to take you all along this amazing journey with me,” she continued.
Elon Musk—who’s probs relieved that the secret’s finally out—expressed his pride for his mum in a touching tweet. Awwwww.
Congrats Mom! I love you.
