A Look At April Cover Stars

So, I had such a good time putting together the last magazine cover post, I thought I’d give it another go for spring!  This is my favorite time for covers because there’s so much color and skin after the dark winter months.  Here’s a gander at some of my favorites -and some that made me say, “What?!  WHY?!”

Zooey Deschanel on Lucky:

I love this!  Zooey Deschanel is, like, the perfect indie ingenue here (and everywhere), and I’m living for her dress.  I wish I could pull off cutie-pie looks like this.

Kate Winslet on UK Vogue:

She is channeling Brigitte Nielsen with that platinum cropped ‘do.  The newly single mom looks better than ever.

Gucci Mane on The Source:

I saw this at the store and was like, “Is that an ice cream cone on his face?”  I’m still not sure (I found out the other day that I need glasses).  Amazing!

Britney Spears and Madonna on Out:

Rumor has it that the folks over at Out Magazine didn’t trust Brit Brit to sell enough magazines, so they brought out The Queen to ensure a hot issue.  I’m not sure that’s true, but I’m happy that we get these two ferosh covers.  I forgot how beautiful young Madonna was.  Le Sigh.

Rihanna on Vogue:

Art History 101:  I’m not a fan of RiRi’s “Bobo the Clown” orange locks, but this photo is gorge McGeorge.  Anyone else seeing Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” up in here?  Get that woman a big ass seashell, STAT.

Edward Cull- er, I mean Robert Pattinson on Vanity Fair:

Why, Rob, why?  Ugh.  Is that a belt in your jeans?  What are you, 50?!  Why are your fingernails so long?  Don’t tell me it’s for the guitar.  They make picks for that.  And isn’t your movie, Water for Elephants, about an . . . elephant?  Wtf’s up with the ‘gator?  An elephant is probably too literal.  Whatever.  I’ll just look into your eyes and block it all out. . .

Join me, won’t you, in snagging some of these bad boys before they leave newsstands?  We can discuss what in the world is on Gucci Mane’s face.  Hope you’re all having a great “Hump Day!”  xx


The Stars Align For December Covers

I’ve often said that magazines are like little books.  So, when people ask me what I’m reading, I usually say, “Vogue,” with a straight face.  But, honestly, now that I’m actively working on my reading list, I haven’t paid much attention to my ‘zines.  Until this month.  Have you noticed that there are some gorgeous covers on newsstands lately?  Gasp.  Here’s a look at some of my favorites.

Rihanna on Interview:

That hair is really growing on me.  The flowers, that one big earrring. . . loves it.

Ke$ha on Complex:

I like this because she doesn’t look a complete hot mess (like she’s prone to), and the roller skates are hot.  I’m gonna need those under my tree this month!  And I don’t even roller skate. . . it’s a long, embarrassing story.

Kerry Washington on LA Times Magazine:

Um, Kerry?  The year 2050 called.  They want their FEROCITY back!  I die for this.

Ryan Gosling on New York Magazine:

I have no idea what’s going on here, but I’m OK with it.  I mean, it kind of looks like he got in a fight.  I’m going to pretend that fight was for my affections.  Yup.

Music With a Message: Eminem feat. Rihanna

Happy Monday, friends!

Sunday morning I was watching the news and there was a report about Eminem’s new video for “Love the Way You Lie,” his duet with Rihanna.  It was basically saying that “some people” are not fans of the vid because of all the violence.  And that is terrible, but it got me thinking:

Does anyone still watch music videos?

I mean, MTV never shows them anymore.  I don’t know a lot of other channels that show them.  Maybe CMT?  I don’t know.  I don’t watch it.  Anyway, just for your reference, here’s the video in question:

What do you think?  Is it too violent for TV?  Is Rihanna singing to Chris Brown? Is there any way Dominic Monaghan could get with Megan Fox in real life? Why don’t I look like Rihanna in hotpants?  I have serious questions, people!

Note:  Obviously, all jokes aside, I don’t condone domestic violence.  If you or someone you know is a victim of domestic violence, please call the Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233.
