We support any celebrity willing to publicly question the norm, but it might be easier to shake up the establishment if Katy Perry’s Rolling Stone cover didn’t happen to have her sporting brand-name milk chocolate boobs.Ã‚Â “When I was a kid, I asked questions about my faith. Now I’m asking questions about the world,” Perry explains her cover article. “I think we are largely in desperate need of revolutionary change in the way our mindset is. Our priority is fame, and people’s wellness is way low. I saw this knowing full well that I’m a part of the problem.” Perry’s new consciousness seemingly does not prevent her from getting hosed down in a leopard bikini for her photos by Terry Richardson, but we’ve clearly come a long way since the whip cream bazooka bra. Philosophically-speaking, that is. Wardrobe-wise, we’re pretty much in the same novelty bra store.

The picture on the right is Blake Lively for Madison Magazine’s upcoming July issue. The picture on the left is Blake covering Vogue Magazine in June last year. Madison mag basically lifted the same hair, the same expression and the same outfit except the color of the top and a few little changes here and there.
Since the Vogue cover was last year, we’re guessing they thought that nobody would notice the difference. Guess again! We were looking at the picture and couldn’t help thinking we had seen it somewhere else. And since Blake is Anna Wintour‘s pet, we guessed correctly that it was on Vogue. Madison is a magazine for Australia, FYI, and all we can say to them is — BUSTED! What do you guys have to say about this?

Now this is a cover. Trust the Italians to get it right! Beyonce on the L’Uomo Vogue July cover looks more sexy than we’ve ever seen her. We’re particular fans of androgyny when it’s done well and we can’t fault the lighting, making or wardrobe in this shot. Her jacket, shirt and bowtie are all by Dior Homme and the shoes are Tom Ford who put the ‘mmm‘ in menswear. July’s issue is a dual cover so Beyonce’s on with Novak Djokovic (the tennis player). Unfortunately he doesn’t stand a chance against this picture of Bey’s.
We’d like to see the singer channel such a strong look more often. Not that she doesn’t already, but most of her looks now seem to involve very little clothing or most of her sternum exposed. She doesn’t need to — all she’s showing off here is some leg and that’s more than enough.

Adele is adorable and awesome; all you need to do is watch her interview with VH1 in which she calls fellow Brit Robert Pattinson a “national treasure” to know that. Our girl crush on her extended itself when we saw Adele on Glamour‘s July cover talking about one of our top three dream men — Prince Harry! (Ian Somerhalder and Jackson Rathbone round of the top three, in case you’re wondering.) Echoing our statements, she told the magazine, “I’m after Prince Harry. I know I said I wouldn’t go out with a ginger, but it’s Prince Harry! I’d be a real duchess then. I’d love a night out with him, he seems like a right laugh.” A “right laugh” being the tip of the iceberg, of course.
She also spoke about dating within the celebrity circuit and her opinion is now a part of our quotable quotes collection! We giggled when we saw what she said — “I’ve been on a few dates with celebrities but I don’t like it. You go out and everyone looks at you both. I’m not going to say who. We go to really established places that know how to keep their f—king mouths shut. But then, everyone wants to f—k a celebrity so I wouldn’t trust them.” In case you’re wondering who she would date, the field’s wide open, but she does have a couple of clauses. She explained, “I don’t have a type. Never have. Older, but not as in 50…Not younger than me. I’m pretty young so it would be like f—ing Justin Bieber! Any color. Any shape. But they’ve got to be funny.” Got that? Selena Gomez, rest easy! Having a potty-mouth would help too, we reckon.

Our other favorite vampire, Alexander Skarsgard covers Interview Magazine’s June issue. And not just anyone is interviewing him — Arcade Fire‘s lead singer Win Butler plays journalist for the day and asks the questions. Which is all well and good but holy s—t, Skarsgard looks just devastating on the cover! Team Eric all the way!
A lot of the conversation centers about his role on True Blood and he talks about not wanting to play the same stock character all the time. He explained, “I do get a lot of scripts sent to me where they basically want me to play Eric from ‘True Blood,’ but just a different name in a different movie. That’s not interesting to me. I don’t want to play a character that I’ve played for four years on a television show, change the name, and make him a zombie instead of a vampire.” We don’t care what he plays. As he long as he looks like that, and acts like that, we’re sold.

Hmmm, is it us or is the new Lady Gaga Rolling Stone cover starting to recycle some of Baby Born This Way‘s biggest fashion hits/atrocities? Hair bow? Check. No eyebrows? Double check. Bra exposed? Definitely a check, but to be fair, that’s basically a fashion staple for Gaga, like how most people wear pants or shoes with heels. The bleeding red-to-blond hair effect is nice though; very Carrie-at-a-medieval-prom. Gaga’s new interview drops this Friday in the June issue of the magazine, and we’re sure she will continue to bring the freshness. It’s only when she busts out the hideous zebra-striped shirt-dress from “Just Dance” that we have to worry.

There’s no doubt the new Glee Marie Claire covers look banging. Dianna Agron, Lea Michele and Amber Riley have amazing hair, clothes that make our Target dresses look like rags, and glowing skin that bares only the mildest kiss of Photoshop (for the most part). We really hate to point out the flaws in such fabulousness, but what is up with Riley’s cover headline being different than everyone else’s?
On their solo covers, Agron and Michele offer written promise that they’ll discuss “the rumors! gossip! drama!” of their hit show. Yet on Riley’s cover, the actress is quoted saying, “I show girls how to be comfortable with their bodies.” Of all four covers, Amber’s is the only one highlighting the actress’s body, rather than the insanity that must come with working on one of the hottest shows on TV. Riley is definitely a gorgeous woman, but it’d be nice of Marie Claire could single her out for more than just her pants’ size. Like, for example, how she clearly needs to be given a major story line when Glee‘s Lady Gaga episode drops April 26. If it wasn’t for that one glaring difference, the four covers would make for a near-flawless gallerGlee.

We’ve got royal fever these days because of William and Kate Middleton‘s upcoming wedding, but it’s the ginger prince who really makes us swoon. Check out the special edition Prince Harry GQ UK‘s May cover shot by David Bailey, and tell us if we’re wrong! The magazine has bagged an exclusive with the shot and story on the Walking with the Wounded team, which the prince is patron of. They’re going on a massive four week trek to the North Pole to try and raise 2 million pounds for charities that help rehabilitate wounded servicemen. Super noble, and super hot. Don’t you agree?

We still can’t figure out why Men’s Fitness put Scott Disick on their cover for May’s issue. We know him as only three things — the angry dude, Mason’s daddy and Kourtney Kardashian‘s boyfriend. That’s it, period. Is that enough for someone to get mag’s selling? Seriously? As you can tell we’re not fans so don’t start with us. But his girlfriend clearly is. Koutney tweeted about the cover, gushing, “I love @scottdisick’s Men’s Fitness cover!! He looks like James Dean!” We’re just going to say it. No, he does not, Kourtney. R.I.P Dean. We do not want him turning in his grave. And this is just a guess, but looking at the cover, Disick’s bronzed chiseled Zoolander face and bod looks like someone did a little something that rhymes with Photoshop.
Surprisingly, someone other than Kourtney also thinks Scott’s perfect for the cover. That would be Scott himself, duh. The shoot was aired on an episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York where he said, “When you think of a debonair ridiculously good looking guy, you think of me”. We’re going to scream this as loud as we can, just to make our point — NO, WE DON’T. Remove three letters of your name, and that’ll tell you what we think of you. Think we’re being way harsh? The dude got his poor assistant Dale to buy him underwear at the shoot. And settling in as the grossest thing we heard all day, he yelled at Dale saying, “You know what Dale, give me your boxers.” Guess what, Dale quit. After calling Scott, “an egotistical, pompous a—hole.” Word.

Rolling Stone sure got a winner of a cover story out of Justin Bieber. The teen star gave up some bold quotes about the U.S. health care system (“Canada’s the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don’t need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you’re broke because of medical bills,”) abortion (“It’s like killing a baby?”) and premarital sex (“I think you should just wait for the person you’re…in love with”). The writer even noticed that Bieber had a photo with Selena Gomez as his computer’s desktop image. How did all this get past the handlers?
And yet the most surprising aspect might be the cover (shot by supercreep shutterbug Terry Richardson), on which Bieber’s hair helmet is replaced with a spiky do more appropriate for his leather jacket and white undershirt (too bad they’ve already cast the 21 Jump Street movie). Is he getting ready to say goodbye to his trademark cut once and for all? With puberty already forcing some changes on him (“[He] doesn’t sound like what his fans think he sounds like,” admits his vocal coach), maybe he’s looking to make a few more.
