Musk spoke about being asked to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated during an interview with People, where she noted that she did not believe that the magazine’s executives were serious about their offer at first.

‘My first reaction was, I could never dream up something like that because why would anyone have a 74-year-old on their cover, especially in a swimsuit,’ she said.

She then noted that she took on the assignment in an effort to normalize modeling for women of older ages.

‘I do think it’s going to make women feel more comfortable in their seventies when they swim, as well as women in their twenties and thirties,’ she stated.

‘I went through different stages of my life where I was rejected, insulted, disappointed and it just takes away your confidence. Then you just have to get over it,’ she stated.

Musk reached agreement by expressing that she had a point in her life where she felt as if she was treated with a certain level of respect from the public.

‘I’m the happiest I’ve ever been, and I don’t care, and nobody’s insulting me because — you don’t want to insult a grandmother. The point is, people are really good to me at this stage,’ she stated.
