Susan Boyle On Bazaar’s September Issue Cover? Say It Ain’t So

susan-boyle-at-home-pic-sm-473686870UPDATE (7/21- 3pm): This rumor is FALSE, according to Laura Brown, Features & Special Projects Editor at Bazaar.

Rumor has it that Susan Boyle of Britain’s Got Talent and every worst dressed list in the past six months may have snagged the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. So I’m going to put this out there right now: if Susan Buyle does, in fact, wind up on the cover of Bazaar this September (or any other month, for that matter), I will throw a massive fit in protest. It won’t actually change anything, but the thought of sitting by and doing nothing in the face of such a travesty is too terrible to consider. I used to work there and now they’re doing photo shoots with Susan Boyle, the wirey eyebrowed wonder?

But before you lower that blade to your wrist and start running the bath water, please keep in mind that this rumor is brought to your courtesy of The Mirror, a British tabloid, meaning that it’s probably not true. I’ll be interviewing Laura Brown, editor of Features and Special Projects over at Bazaar later this week, hopefully she’ll put the rumor to rest once and for all. Or maybe she’ll just continue lapping up all the press Bazaar is getting for this odd little publicity tid bit.

    You would be fortunate to have even half the class, courage and heart of Susan Boyle. Your energies would be better directed at acquiring some of the above as opposed to demeaning and belittling someone who obviously has more attention, credibility and possibly raw talent. Hopefully you will choose to make some changes in attitude and even career choices from yellow journalism to quality writing that would be worthhile reading.

    Susan Boyle’s talent and “class” have nothing to do with whether or not she should be on the cover of a high fashion magazine. Even if she is courageous and full of heart, she’d make more sense of the cover of People or some such thing, not a magazine that exists to sell and discuss fashion, a topic she has acknowledged having little to no interest in or knowledge of.

    About Me

    Lily Q lives and obsesses about clothes in New York's West Village, where a myriad of tempting stores and pretty dresses threaten to leave her living in a box much like a hobo. When not crying silently about how little time and how many shoes there are, Lily is writing about it.

    You can also check her out on TheFrisky.com, The Local blog (Brooklyn version) at The New York Times and her own blog, Lily Q Talks Clothes. She could easily have written this bio in the first person but prefers that special variety of douchiness that comes with writing in the third person.
