Is there anything wrong with this magazine cover?

    Not really.
    It accurately sums up the artificiality of Hollywood - all glitz, glamour, show, and false values.
    No ethical, emotional or social depth or substance.

    Does it matter to you that the woman on the cover is NOT a black woman?

    To be honest, I can't tell whether she's black or not.
    I don't know who she is.
    I don't know what ethic mix her genes are.
    I have no idea how much plastic surgery she's had, nor where the cosmetics end and the computerised air-brushing begins.
    I only know that there's not one pixel that displays a human being as she would be in real life.

    There's also a massive amount of sexism in the image -
    the age-old representation of a nubile woman in a sexually inviting posture, setting her up to be treated as a sex object.
    I don't like that - but it's typically Hollywood.

    I did not recognize her either. I just heard about the blowback she is getting for "cultural appropriation".  It is her magazine so she is has control over all including the pose.

    Not my idea of beauty at all: everything is fake down to the color of her skin.  She might be pretty and look younger underneath all that false facade.  I remember the first time I saw Christine Agularia
    without makeup:  she is naturally beautiful and looked 20 years younger.   This type of glamour is old-fashioned, from the 70's.

  • I think she looks good. I don’t see anything wrong with the picture.

    I agree. She is even covered more than normal. 
    People are screaming "cultural appropriation" and "black face"

  • People need to get a grip. She’s Arminian, so that is her skin colour. They way I see it is she’s going for a throw back look. I think she’s going for the  Liz Taylor..that’s what I saw when first looked at the pic. It’s much better that that cover a couple years ago that was breaking the internet lol.....I was going to post the pic then realized you’d just have to delete it :)

    Yes. People just look for stuff to be offended over. 
    (Thank you not posting that) 

    We were watching Frosty (cartoon) last night. And my oldest son (19) is like "Mom, why are all the kids white?"  I told him to just stop. This post was edited by my2cents at December 20, 2019 5:36 PM MST

  • I don’t think that klan can be killed. They’re taking over THE WORLD one photo shoot at a time.

    She married to an Uncle Tom bi-polar mess who believes slavery is a choice.  She's a Kardashian. Who really cares? Why is she famous? Is she even a woman?
     I could not give two hoots in hell if the entire klan drown in the ocean

    This is why I was trying to avoid her name. 

    She is being criticized for "cultural appropriation" and "black face".

    Nothing to do with her husband or who she is other than not being a black woman.

    She is a Kardashian. 
    Their claim to fame is invalid
    It makes no difference who she is married to
