There was a time when you could just bung Angelina Jolie or Jennifer Aniston on the cover of almost any women’s magazine and sit back and wait for the sales to flood in.
No longer. while any cover featuring “JenAn” might seem like a safe choice, no magazine editor would jump up and down at the thought. They’re not, poor things, as “fresh and new” or “interesting” as they once were.
So who’s next?
In England … it seems mag editors still put their money on The KKV Show, (Anyone called “Kate” and Victoria Beckham.)
In America, we mag peeps are told, the “next thing” wrt to cover choice, is the Three T’s: That would be Twilight, Twentysomethings and television
But, thanks to that “Trampire” Kristen Stewart, and the fact that a question mark hangs over her “likeability” after she broke poor RPatz’s heart, * perhaps there’s a gap for another cover category.
Women who sing irritating songs?
Here’s Carly Rae Jepson whose “Call Me Maybe” was the ear worm of the late summer, on the cover of Canada’s Fashion Magazine.
What do you think?
I think, she’s throwing the kind of side-eye that any magazine editor would give you, if you suggested that there was such a thing as “sure things” on covers any more.
* I, by the way, would put a picture of K Stewart on a cover, without a second thought, were there a suitable one, around. Her heartless, slutty, husband-stealing behaviour has made her marginally more interesting, and powerful, I fear.
Her professional future, playing evil witches, (Brenda is the 15th remake of Beverley Hills 90210?) is, no doubt secured.
It’s poor RPatz, I fear for.
Hard to imagine him as a heart breaker, for e.g. after this public humiliation.
Think of him cast as 50 Shames of Grey’s Christian Grey for e.g….?
It doesn’t work, does is?
