Jessica Gets the Vanity Fair Cover — What's the Big Deal?

Jessica Gets the Vanity Fair Cover — What's the Big Deal?

Jessica Simpson scored big as Vanity Fair's June cover girl. Her image is next to the tag line, "You Call This Fat?" which is a reference to the unflattering photos taken of her earlier this year. The article and the cover are making waves already. While she looks great in the pictures, some people are raising the question of why the magazine is featuring her in the first place. So, tell us what you think — what's the big deal with Jessica's cover?

Why do so many people care that Jessica Simpson was on the cover of Vanity Fair? Does this directly affect you...your life..your family? Even if you don't care for Jessica Simpson and think she's "talentless" does she affect you. If you're tired of hearing about her "talentless, pathetic life"... don't listen to it. Saying hurtful things about someone you have never met is WRONG and sad. Jessica Simpson has her own life and obviously some people are interested in her....and if you say you aren't....why are you taking the time to read this blog or even post a comment?

She should not have landed that cover. She is boring, unattractive, talentless and suffers from amnesia (hum hum, forgetting lines anyone?) so why????why??? why??? why does someone like THAT land a VANITY FAIR magazine COVER! if she was featured in the magazine, ok, whatever. BUT ON THE COVER? JEEEZ HOW DESPERATE ARE THESE PEOPLE??

Hmmmm, I think POPSUGAR is the one who is trying to raise the question of why she is on the cover. Controversy stirrer upper much?

Those photos are nice but obviously photoshopped to death. So to use a line like "you call this fat?" with it is just stupid.

the sad thing is that Jessica IS talented but because of Newlyweds she has become a girl how is recognized more for what she's wearing, who she's with, and what silly things she's saying... and Jessica Simpson herself is bought into the whole thing.

How embarrassing for VF to have this talent-free, irrelevant pseudo-celebrity on the cover. Oh, and Oscar-baby is 100% right. Lets all celebrate the power of starvation diets (because Jess looked nothing like that a couple of months ago) and photoshop (because she ain't looking like this now either).

because she's "young, gorgeous and recession proof" ..and would you rather see Madoff's lying face on the cover? or a hot chick?

I used to respect the mag, and though I get it trying to keep in touch with the young folks who will buy a stupid OK weekly with J-Chimp on the cover, they figure they'll buy this too, but there's staying relevant and then there's just plain selling out. They might as well have put Nicole or Paris or Miley on the cover...wait they did that last one.

She's STILL going on about her weight, nothing unusual happened to it so why should anything about it be on the cover of Vanity Fair, or any other magazine? :oy:

JS is not talented (or talented enough, IMHO) to deserve a VF cover. And, they aren't using pics taken when she was supposedly a little heavier (the famous muffin top and bad jeans, at a concert) If they use a pic taken after she's shed 10 pounds, then the cover story loses credibility. What they SHOULD do is a story in general on the media's unfair scrutiny of any female's 10 pound weight gain. The double standard of men's appearance vs women's is appalling.

Beautiful picture! The "You call this fat" tagline was obviously added on to sell issues though - the article didn't strike me as being particularly sympathetic. You haters might want to give the article a read before you whine about all the attention this girl gets. ;)

1. Is Vanity Fair really that desperate..I mean I know the economy is bad, but really? 2. If you are trying to prove Jessica Simpson isn't fat, then why not use un-photoshopped pictures of her? ...Oh wait because she HAS gotten chubby, and her pictures HAVE to be photoshopped! LAME! ..I'm tired of hearing about her failed marriage with Nick Lachey, Her creepy relationship with her Dad, her relationship with Tono Romo and the Cowboys Fans, and of course the classic "body image" topic. And when the article comes out, and if even ONE of these topics isn't discussed I will be beyond surprised!!!

How should the world and when everyone is just like , "YOU ARE TOO FAT" if of every celebritie, there would be romours about that.The whole world specialy the teens would get thinner and thinner or fatter and fatter (because they're sad about they arent that thin) because they arent perfect :(

Well, I think she looks good on the cover. It's a good photo. With that said, I think there was a considerable amount of photoshopping that was done, but that's practically considered normal these days. :)
