ZackTaylor.ca reports that Justin Bieber's mom, 34-year-old Pattie Lynn Mallette, got an offer to pose for Playboy Magazine! What?!
Playboy offered her $50,000 for the photos.Â She was only 18 when her now-famous son was born and the young mom still looks pretty fantastic, if her appearances on the red carpet are any indication.
Still, would you wanna see your favorite celebrity's mother naked on the pages of a magazine? Maybe I just don't get the appeal. It's a MILF thing, isn't it?
To be clear, the mag only proposed that she pose topless, nothing more. But she still turned the deal down. Zack Taylor reports that Pattie Lynn took to her Twitter after stories of the offer broke and said,Â "PLAYBOY!? Heavens No, HELL NO! Heavens AND Hell NO! Thx but no thx!"
Ha! So she's not into it. For one thing, I imagine the family doesn't need the extra $50K. Also, as much as I respect a woman's right to make her own choices about her career (and if that includes posing topless for Playboy, go get it, girl!), I love that Bieber's mom turned this offer down. Her 15-year-old son is a megastar. Can you imagine how many conflicted emotions he might feel - today and for the rest of his life - if he caught a glimpse of his naked mom in a magazine?
Seems like Pattie feels she's a mom first and she wants to keep it that way. I like that.
What would you do? Do you think posing for Playboy as a mom-in-the-spotlight is a smart career move or a desperate attention-seeking tactic? Would you accept an offer like this if you were in her position?
