1. Martha Stewart, 81, becomes oldest Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model

Is 81 the new 71? Martha Stewart has posed for the cover of Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue, becoming the magazine's oldest cover model ever at age 81. "Usually, I'm motivated by pay," Stewart told Sports Illustrated. "But this time, I was motivated by showing people that a woman my age can still look good, feel good, be good, blah blah blah." Her photos were taken in the Dominican Republic, and she joined this year's other cover models, Megan Fox, Kim Petras, and Brooks Nader. On the "Today" show, Stewart declared "the whole aging thing is so boring," as she's more focused on "good living." Still, she told Sports Illustrated that while she doesn't "think about age very much," she figured she "better look really good" in the photoshoot, as a woman of her age being a cover model is "kind of historic." Take that, Don Lemon.
