I have heard people say that about Janet Jackson a million times and poor Mariah, as she inches closer and closer to 40, more and more people are starting to say the same thing about her. Sadly, ageism against women is alive and well- but I find Stacy Dash seems to be spared those types of comments even though she is 42 years old- the exact same age as Janet Jackson. And though I love me some Stacy, she stay butt nekkid up in men’s magazines and no one ever questions her motives or mentions her age- except to praise her of course. So why does Stacy get spared the nasty comments about dressing and posing scantily clad in magazines, while Mariah, and Janet in particular, are scolded? Well my belief is that she’s just not as big a star as Janet and Mariah. When you are at the top folks like to see you fall and fall big. So while Janet and Mariah are told to get dressed, grow up or flat out retire- Stacy gets a pass basically because she is a d-list Black actress who doesn’t have much else to offer but her good looks. Still, I am all for Stacy flaunting what she has- if that’s what makes her feel good. Women do not shrivel up and die at 40 and they definitely don’t stop being sexy or sexual beings- as Stacy so clearly demonstrates in the pic to your right.
