AARP Just Put Your '90s Boyfriend on the Cover of Its Magazine
Yes, we're all getting old.
Luke Perry, '90s heartthrob and star of Beverly Hills, 90210 among other things, recently celebrated his milestone 50th birthday. AARP, or the American Association of Retired Persons, thought it would be fun to pluck at the heartstrings of the internet and celebrate his big 5-0 by giving him the cover of their magazine. "Welcome to the 902-5-OH," the mag cleverly asserted:
Oh, AARP, you should know better than to remind the internet about their age and mortality. It doesn't make people feel very good.
Sigh. It's okay, guys. As they say, 50 is the new 30, or something like that. Plus, who said getting old was a bad thing, right?
Happy birthday, Luke. Whether it's 1995 or 2035, you'll always be our #1.
