THE 'VOGUE' ISSUE



Sometimes the blogosphere can trigger some bull discussions on what is politically correct and what isn't and sadly since the 24-hours news stations are so desperate for content they decide to engage.

I was astonished to see how much news coverage the recent Vogue magazine cover featuring LeBron James and Gisele is getting.

Some ESPN black anchor described the cover as derogratory to black athletes and something about making these altheles look like "animals". WTFuss? Others have drawn comparisons to King Kong and Fray Wray - What?

I don't care what anyone thinks about the "Beauty and the Beast" esque shoot (Oooooh...I think I'm going to stir up some controversy), did anyone actually look at what the theme for the month's issue was?

This desperate need to draw correlations to the race issue will continue to ruin America yet they all claim to be ready for CHANGE. What-f*****-ever!

Absoultely ridiculous considering the theme of the issue. surely the argument should be about the idea of alpha male and perfect female physiques...but man we just want shit to be contovesial cause everthing is so old hat.

Yeah I'm totally with you two on this one. I saw an article about it all and clearly people have way too much time on their hands if they are going to be bothered by this and call it a race issue. If it was naomi and not gisele then what..... she would prob kick his ass and be the beast. We all heard about the terminal 5 incident right. G.H.E.T.T.O

I definitely agree with all of you. Much ado about nothing. I didn't bat an eyelid when I saw it. Its about buff bodies, and they both have buff bodies...so what's the problem?

King friggin Kong? Oh lord, give me strength.
