Elle magazine is in trouble over Gabourey Sidibe

By brendon September 14, 2010 @ 4:49 PM


The 25th Anniversary issue of Elle magazine has 4 different covers, each one showing someone on their list of 25 notable women under 25. The covers show Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Gabourey Sidibe, and Lauren Conrad. Sidibe is actually 27, but that’s the least of Elle’s problems.

As you can see, the covers for Fox, Conrad and Seyfried show body shots, while Sidibes is more of a close up. And some, like this blog, are also saying Elle lightened her skin.

In Elles defense, it’s easy to find pictures of Sidibe at different events where she looks lighter or darker, for whatever reason. They also put Alek Wek on their cover, twice, and that chick is black as night.

As far as not showing Sidibes body, are you god damn kidding me. Of course they didn’t. If they had to have a black girl they should have gotten Zoe Saldana. Or Meagan Good. K.D. Aubert is absolutely awesome, put her on there and everybody wins. Sidibe shouldn’t be anywhere near Elle. It’s a fashion magazine celebrating beauty, and if that lump gets any fatter they’re gonna start listing her on maps.

    Who cares? The one broad look like she ate an entire Wafle House. This is really good. Serve them up come and get them 7 & 7′s for everyone but Watt. He makes enough money to buy his own drinks.

    Just imagine the stench that must be coming from all those folds.

    If ELLE had shown a full body photograph of Gabourey, the U.S. Surgeon General would have forced them to affix a warning label to the magazine. Either that or a plain brown wrapper.

    They tried showing her body but cameras just don’t pan out that far yet with todays technology.

    She’d feed a tribe of Ethiopian cannibals for a month.

    The sympathy cover…dammit. The next cover needs to be a live-cam of Megan Fox”s taint to redeem themselves.

    Whatinthefuck is a brown sofa doing on the cover of Elle?

    She made a movie about a screwed up fat kid. Unless that becomes a series or they make “Blind Side II: The Transvestite Years” I doubt she has a future in acting.

    Last time I checked “black hole” was not a color available in the Pantone library for Photoshop. That’s why the colors are off…
