She’s a registered dietitian with two Master’s degrees.
Maye has a Master’s degree in dietetics and nutritional science. She works as a dietitian through speaking, consulting, counseling, writing and media work. She said of her own diet, “Science and common sense. I don’t do crazy stuff. I don’t do a lot of fad diets or supplements.”
She’s also got some very strong feelings about about diet trends, for instance almond milk, which she calls “plant-based water.” Of the juicing fad she weighed in, “Yeah, I don’t juice.” Um, hold on. *Immediately throws away all almond milk and juice in fridge to be just like her.*
And NBD but she was in a Beyoncé video.
Yup. You can catch a very quick glimpse of Maye in Beyoncé video for her song Haunted. And, duh, she looks amazing in a white cape, long black gloves, and an array of cross necklaces.
Oh, and did we mention her son is Elon Musk?
It’s not a coincident Maye has the same last name as entrepreneur and inventor Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX and CEO of Tesla, because she’s his mom!
Maye has three children: Elon, Kimbal, restaurant entrepreneur, and Tosca a film director. Are they the most ambitious family on the planet? Nobody can say for sure but, yeah, probably.
She has a no-nonsense attitude.
Maye worked hard to be where she is, and she doesn’t take it for granted. Even after over 50 years of modeling, she often hashtags Instagram posts featuring her modeling successes #JustGettingStarted.
Age is just a number for Maye.
Maye has said that after she stopped dyeing her hair a few years ago and let it grow in its natural gray she started getting more bookings than ever. The thing that so many women try to cover up became Maye’s most sought-after feature.
Maye told The New York Times, “Aging has been good for me. You develop confidence, you’re able to handle the knocks a little easier. I model for my age. I’m not trying to hide it and say I’m 50. I’m so proud that I’m going be 70.”
Seriously could not be more obsessed with this confident, hard-working woman who doesn’t let any standards of beauty define her. If this is her just getting started, please never let her finish.
