When you’re facing a sea of glossies with the same old celebrities on the cover, pictured next to lines you’ve seen a gazillion times before (like “37 Ways To Get Amazing Abs!”), it’s hard to get inspired to plunk down $4 bucks for a mag. But there’s one new cover that did motivate me to reach into my wallet. Its…
…the December issue of Essence featuring Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas. I was obsessed, I mean OBSESSED, with her during the London games. How adorable does she look here? That smile! It’s like I can feel her happiness beaming at me through the cover. You got, me Gabby, you got me.
I have a shelf in my apartment where I display mags that I think are really special. You know, historical stuff like Michelle Obama on the cover of Vogue. Guess I better make a little room for Miss All-Around Champion and her million-dollar grin.
Have you been moved to buy any magazines lately? Don’t leave me in suspense!
