I am rather undignified and excited that our December issue is finally here, clutched in my paws, in all it’s lovely Planters-punchy summery deliciousness.
Putting it together has been ….a ride.
Readers can choose to buy one of two covers of local stars, two COSMO favourites, now stars of this year’s most – eagerly anticipated film, Spud – Tanit Phoenix and Charlbi Dean Kriek.
We’ve got a seriously sexy Rihanna on the cover of COSMORocks, our 42-page music extra of which we are especially proud.
This year the 42 page supplement was ably and enthusiastically guest-edited by the nicest woman in SA music, Zolani Mohala of Freshly Ground.
We’ve got Jack Parow being Jack Parow.
The Locnville twins! (Eeeeeeekahsweetetc)
Just an embarrassment of talent.
We’ve got Zolani interviewing Yolandi from Die Antwoord and Yolandi and her oil-covered Ninja and their merry band of rats.*
We’ve got our 2010 roll call of inspirational honour: COSMO’s FUN, FEARLESS, FEMALES.
I have always been careful NOT to turn this blog into a hard-sell of the marvellousness that is COSMO, but you know, I am a little biased.
I think it’s quite good.
Hope you’re inspired to buy it and if not, that you beg, borrow or steal it from someone lying next to you on the beach.
If she’ll give it up.
I suspect she won’t.
Charlbi’s equally delicious cover after the jump.
* Nope. For that very attractive picture, you’ll have to buy the magazine.
But it’s a classic. It’s worth the R31.95, all by itself.
