Jamie Lee Curtis: People lost their minds that I went topless at 50

At the AARP awards over the weekend, Jamie Lee Curtis was acknowledged with the Career Achievement Award. The awards show is called Movies for Grownups Awards, btw, which I just love. I love everything about AARP and how they cheekily play with their over 50 image these days. Their marketing team deserves a medal.

Back to Jamie, right before the awards, Jamie reflected on the topless cover she shot for the AARP 2008 May/June issue. Jamie was 50 at the time and according to La Curtis, “people lost their MINDS.” Since Jamie had famously appeared topless in Trading Places when she was 24 years old, what was the big deal? Apparently that a 50-year-old woman dared to present herself as a sexual being.

On Saturday night, actress Jamie Lee Curtis was honored with the Career Achievement Award from AARP The Magazine. But it’s not the first time the publication — which shines a spotlight on people aged 50 and older — has shown the star some love.

In an Instagram post shared ahead of the magazine’s annual Movies for Grownups Awards, Curtis, 64, reflected on appearing topless on the cover of its May/June 2008 issue. Then 50, the Halloween star posed naked in a swimming pool for the Andrew Eccles-lensed shoot, causing quite a stir.

“People lost their MINDS that I was TOPLESS!” Curtis, who just scored for her first Oscar nomination for her supporting turn in Everything Everywhere All at Once, shared. “A perfect statement about how weird people are about older people having any sexuality whatsoever.”

I don’t think Jamie is creating a controversy here. I think her age and the magazine being AARP are exactly why people had such a problem with her being topless on it. This may be a US thing, but there really does seem to be an expected expiration date on sexuality in this country. We simply aren’t supposed to acknowledge that side of us past a point. With the freedoms that come with age and finally getting a handle on our hormones and bodies? Screw that.

I don’t know if I agree with Jamie about people being weird with all older people having sexuality. If a fit, older male appeared topless on AARP I suspect he’d be praised because we don’t censor shirtless men at any age. Maybe people wouldn’t openly lust after him like they would a 25-year-old man, but they wouldn’t lose their minds like they did when Jamie did it.

Chloe Bailey sexy

Chloe Bailey: Being sexy is just being confident

It is difficult to see an amazing musical duo go their separate ways. It is equally hard to watch young artists grow up. This is how I feel about Chloe x Halle. Halle is starring in the live action Little Mermaid movie coming out next year and Chloe will co-star in the thriller Jane. Chloe has also launched a solo music career along with a more sexually expressive image. As usual, there have been equal amounts of praise and backlash for Chloe. Folks have a hard time when a woman has a firm grasp on their sexuality. In a conversation with Elaine Welteroth for Yahoo’s! In the Know’s January cover, Chloe stated that Beyonce has helped her celebrate her body and sexuality. Chloe also said that being sexy is connected to being confident. Here are a few highlights:

“I can honestly and genuinely say it was Beyoncé who made me look at my body and say maybe it is okay to have my body. Maybe it is okay to have a plump butt. Maybe it is okay to have to shake and jump to fit in my jeans,” Chloe shared with In The Know. “During the ‘Bootylicious’ era, I would go and see her flaunting her curves and be like, ‘She looks damn good!’”

In her cover interview for In The Know’s January 2022 digital cover, Chloe opens up about her insecurities as she steps into the spotlight solo while learning to celebrate both her body and sexuality — no matter what anyone has to say about it.

Elaine: Whether you intend to or not, you’re challenging why it makes us uncomfortable for a woman to be overtly sexual. So, I wanna ask you, what is it like to embody that mirror in a sexually repressed society?

Chlöe: Well, one, that’s incredible that you think that’s what I’m doing, but there are so many incredible women I have looked up to that have done that long before me. Donna Summer, Kelis, Beyoncè, Nina Simone. There has never been a point in time that a society has ever been comfortable with the woman being powerful in the skin that she’s in. So I just have to give kudos to every woman who’s inspired me, every one of my peers right now who’s saying, “I love my body. I feel sexy.”

When I hear the word “sexy,” when I want to be sexy, when I want to feel sexy, I don’t really think of that as a bad thing. I don’t think of it as being promiscuous. That’s just being confident. A man can sit up there with his shirt off, ripped, and, like, flex his pecs and all that shit. That’s sexy. But he doesn’t get ridiculed for doing that. It’s when a woman pokes her ass out, when she poses a certain way so her hip curves more, or when she puckers her lips and has her boobs perched up in her bra, that’s when it’s a problem. You know?

Elaine: Do you feel like you are under a different level of scrutiny because of your curvy build as a young Black woman?

Chlöe: Well, it’s not just me. It’s any Black, beautiful woman. Any woman, period. It’s something all of us go through in our life in any field. It’s just more multiplied because of the platform that I’m given on social media. No matter what women do, no matter how talented we are, no matter how screwed on our head is, someone will always have a problem because we choose to celebrate our body and the skin that we’re in. No matter if you have a slim figure or if you have a more curvy figure, you shouldn’t dim your light, period. We shouldn’t form ourselves and do certain things just because of what we think the world will say. It’s not fair to ourselves to do that because it’s more work thinking that way. It’s easier to just be yourself and have fun and be free. It’s more stifling and more suffocating when you’re calculating what you can and can’t do just because other people can’t.

[From In The Know]

It has been such an honor to watch Chloe and Halle grow into the formidable women that they have become. I have also enjoyed watching Chloe really embrace her body and sexuality. Chloe is going through the natural progression of maturation. She is 23, which is around the age that most of us begin to experiment with our image and sexual expression. I agree that being sexy is connected to being confident. It is difficult to be sexy without confidence. As for the people who were shaming Chloe for embracing her body openly and pushed her to tears during an Instagram live last year, they can kick rocks. They were the main people talking about how fine she was.

The more women fully embrace their power, the less control the patriarchy and by extension society will have over them. I also agree with Chloe that the backlash is attached to her being a Black woman. America loves to attack women who demonstrate body autonomy. They seem to have it out for Black women who openly embrace their sexuality (hello Janet Jackson, Cardi B, Megan Thee Stallion, and Lizzo). I am happy that Chloe is not dimming her light for anyone and I am looking forward to her solo album. Have Mercy is on heavy rotation on my Spotify and if it is a preview of the album, then Chloe’s solo album is gonna be lit!

Gigi Hadid on Her Runway Walk: “Obviously I’m not the best”


Gigi Hadid has transformed herself in the past years from a bubbly and more athletic-looking model that mostly did sexy photo-shoots to a high-fashion, much skinnier model. And this week, the blonde beauty opened up about her runway walk and how it definitely needs work.

On her career as a runway model:

Before I started modeling, I was more into photographers. I studied a lot how models made pictures in the sense that you have to be a positive part of a picture and make it better. And that’s what is really important for me on set. There’s some people that are bad at looking at monitors and some people that are good looking at monitors. And monitors really help me because I’m able to look at a picture and see where I fit into it, see what I can add to the picture instead of just being a person that’s on the page.

“But the runway thing, it’s funny because obviously I’m not the best on the runway. But what do you do? When you’re the face of a brand you show up to the show. My first show people were already expecting a lot more from me than I [was capable of at the time]. I never was taught how to walk on the runway. And maybe that’s because it moved really quickly for me, that people just assumed that that was something I knew. So, you know, a year and a half later, I’m still learning. I got some compliments on my Tom Ford show, so I’m getting better. I’m working on it, but I’m human. I still get insecure on the runway, but it’s really exciting for me because I want to get better. I love being on the runway.

… says Gigi.

Kylie Jenner Talks Cheek and Jaw Surgery


Kylie Jenner is one of those celebs who loves to talk about beauty-related topics, as well as answer her fans’ plastic surgeries questions and inquiries (although occasionally denying her own procedures at first). Recently, the reality star opened up about dealing with yet another rumor: that she got jaw and cheek surgery.

On whether she considers Kim the hottest sister:

I don’t try to compete with Kim to be the hottest sister. I mean I think all my sisters are hot, but Kim’s got the crown, Kim’s so cute and sexy. I never compete with my sisters.

On the rumors that she had jaw and cheek surgery:

No I didn’t [have cheek surgery]. People started saying that when I was 16. You really think Kris Jenner would let a 16 year old me have cheek and jaw reconstructive surgery? No!

On whether the haters got to her:

I always used to love my jaw. I was never self-conscious about my jaw, but before I got my lips done, my lips were very tiny and more like sunken into my chin. Someone made a meme of me on the internet of me that I was the Crimson Chin. And me and [my friend] Stas have been laughing about it for about six years. But now that I have big-ass lips, it looks normal.

… says Kylie.
