Hermione Who? Emma Watson Looks Magical On The Cover Of T Magazine

Embarrassingly enough, I was a very serious “Harry Potter” fan back in the day, cloak and wand at the book releases and all. (I probably shouldn’t be outing myself on the Internet, but there it is.) I always thought Hermione was just the coolest, so my adoration of Emma Watson is really just a natural…

Azealia Banks’s Banned “Dazed & Confused” Cover Isn’t Half As Bad As It Could Be

When I heard that Harlem-born rapper and lyricist Azealia Banks’s cover of art and fashion mag Dazed & Confused had been banned in seven countries before the issue even hit stands, I anticipated something infinitely more vulgar than her flipping off the camera as she inflates/fellates a condom. I mean, that’s practically some Taylor Swift

In Case You Were Wondering, I Still Hate Lady Gaga

I couldn’t feasibly be any less interested in Lady Gaga’s Vogue cover. Frankly, I’m shocked that Anna Wintour would even go for it, considering that Gaga is so appallingly uninteresting at this point to everybody except her harem of zealots. I would rather see literally anybody, even Lea Michele, on the September issue. Okay, so maybe…

Keira Knightley Goes Goth And Gorgeous For The Cover Of “Harper’s Bazaar” UK

Confession: I haven’t seen a Keira Knightley movie since “Love Actually,” but I’ll gladly own up to my weakness for the actress any day. How could I not, what with her impeccable bone structure? It also helps that, for all of Keira’s delicate features and compelling roles (but also not really), she manages to come…

Beauty Cues: Get Rachel Weisz’s Look On The Cover Of Marie Claire UK

Rachel Weisz is so beautiful it’s stupid, and I think much of her allure has to do with the fact that she lacks the eerily perfect symmetry of most Hollywood faces — she has a really unique, almost strange look to her that is beyond compelling. After all, Daniel Craig put a ring on it,…

The Numbers Are In: Who Holds The Highest Rank For The September Issue?

The September issue is a huge deal for fashion publications, so much so that an eponymous documentary chronicled its creation at Vogue headquarters. The total count of advertisement pages is indicative of the success of each title in the past year, and foretells what may come in the next. We’ve yet to even enter August…

Emma Stone Snags One Seriously Pretty Vogue Cover

Keep this on the down low: Vogue’s July cover hasn’t yet hit most media outlets, but someone, somewhere, let it slip, and it is gorgeous! Vogue is notoriously heavy-handed with the airbrushing, especially when it comes to the front of the mag, but it’s a good sign that Emma Stone(cold fox) still looks like herself.

Celine Dion Covers Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”

One of my favorite parts of the Celine Dion concert this weekend (besides ALL THE PARTS) was when Celine deviated from her usual song lineup and sang her own powerhouse version of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” Apparently one of my fellow concertgoers was secretly recording it — click on the video to listen for…

Karmin Muppet Scats “Pumped Up Kicks”

Skip directly to 2:19 for the “Muppet scatting” portion of Karmin covering “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster The People. Thank you, Amelia, for the term “Muppet scatting”, by the way. There’s no more accurate way to describe Amy Heidemann’s sounds/facial expressions. I think can we all agree that this is absolutely the worst “Pumped U…

The Best-Selling Mag Cover Stars Of 2011? It’s Not Who You Think

Mila Kunis had a very good year. Besides starring opposite Justin Timberlake in “Friends With Benefits,” Kunis was the top-selling cover girl for GQ magazine this year. Other super successful cover ladies? Sarah Jessica Parker, Heidi Klum and Jennifer Aniston. The triumvirate of blonds were top sellers for ElleVogue, and Marie Claire. In fact, Aniston had…

It’s Time To Cry: Katy Perry’s Cover Of Adele’s “Someone Like You”

Damn you, Katy Perry! You’re dressed like a candy cane and standing between two ladies who look like lifesize anime characters and still your cover of Adele’s heartbreaking “Someone Like You” brought tears to my eyes. [NYMag.com]…

Quickies: Miley Cyrus Covers “Smells Like Teen Spirit” & Adele Snubbed The Royal Wedding

OH HELL NO. Miley Cyrus covered Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” at a concert in Ecuador and possibly had a seizure onstage before she started singing. Oh, that’s her dancing? Kurt Cobain is rolling over in his grave. No wonder Courtney Love does so many drugs. [BuzzFeed]
Donald Trump uses golf as an analogy…

This Cee-Lo/Xtina/Adam Levine/Blake Shelton Cover Of “Crazy” Isn’t Half Bad

Pop song covers that become group projects have so much potential for failure and douche-itude. (See: Bret Michaels and Miley Cyrus duet, “Every Rose Has Is Thorn.”) But this “Crazy” cover by Cee-Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on NBC’s new show, “The Voice,” is pretty damn hot. (But I’ll…

If The Beatles Covered Lady Gaga

Usually when someone messes with The Beatles, I throw a fit. But this Beatles “cover” of Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” — played by a Beatles cover band, I assume? — is so kickass that I wanna download it on my iPod. I’m pretty sure those green pants mean George Harrison gets to be Beyoncé. [YouTube]…

We Are So Over Kim Kardashian Bikini Magazine Covers

I couldn’t help but notice that of the six major tabloid magazines, three this week went with covers featuring a prominently placed Kim Kardashian in a bikini. That’s half. Life & Style is particularly into Kim bikini covers—I searched for less than three minutes and came up with four. Yes, Kim has an amazing body…

Alexa Chung, Translated

Sure, we’re happy to see Alexa Chung strike a pose on the cover of Nylon’s Korean edition, but what we’re more interested in is this—Nylon has a Korean edition?! Cool! [NylonMag.com]…
