Tyler Perry got buff and wants you to see

Add this share

Tyler Perry, who likely spent his holiday in a place nicer than you, is getting buff. Like trimming down, toning up and doing what gay men do: post a shirtless selfie so you can desire him as much as he does. 

Not that the Atlanta entertainment mogul is gay. Just gay fabulous in his new beach selfie. Perry, 46, posted the pic on Facebook, arms curled, biceps fluffed and board shorts slung so low they're only held up by well, you know what.

I'm 18 lbs away from my goal. I hope I don't blow it this holiday season. Gonna try to stay on it. It's hard as heck to lose weight after 40, but it's so worth it. It keeps the doctor away. Don't let anything keep you from being healthy and strong. I wish my mother had fought back. She turned diabetic at 40 and died at 64. Don't let that be you!! Fight back!!

And really, if this Atlanta power top can find time to focus on fitness, so can you. It's an inspiring message as we face down weeks of holiday food, booze and parties. And shirtless Perry is also likely to inspire his male fans, like this sexy model stalker who sued for sexual harassment after barricading himself in Perry's offices, and feed those persistent gay rumors.
