AARP The Magazine August/September 2022

Tyler Perry talks parenthood, Kelly Ripa celebrates her 50th birthday, and ‘Rolling Stone’ editor Jann Wenner shares backstage gossip


The August/September 2022 issue of AARP The Magazine (ATM) takes on healthy habits that (can) turn toxic, beating the odds to live a healthy and happy life and, as always, the art of aging gracefully with tips from influencers and real people.

Award-winning producer, author and actor Tyler Perry opens up about who he really is and what he values now more than his amazing success. Talk show host Kelly Ripa celebrates her 50th by busting her diet (occasionally) and tells us why she makes her children work. In his new memoir, Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner shares backstage gossip about rock icons Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen, Bono and David Bowie. And best-selling author Judy Blume (Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret) talks about trusting your gut, finding motivation in your 80s and how anyone can look good on Zoom. 

Plus, a special tech section with a guide to getting the right gear for everyone’s needs.
