That white background and disposable camera snapshot shadow only means one thing kids...

It's Terry time! With Barack Obama (yes, please)!

Two things:
1. I have a love/hate relationship with Terry Richardson. On one hand it's so refreshing to see his raw look among a sea of Annie Lebowitz portraits but on the other hand, i really don't need to see photos of random chicks blowing him. But, y'know, that's just me. That's my journey.

2. The combo of Vibe, Terry and Barack is a like a little care package to remind other candidates of how cool they aren't. John Edwards is doing his best Bubba impression on the latest issue of Esquire and while I like him overall, it's really not quite as effective. Maybe he should recruit Terry for a GQ cover involving Jessica Alba, American Apparel rompers and a pot of jam. For good measure.

I am so hating Vibe latley. I think I have one issue(this one) left in my subscription. I just don't like the direction that it has taken.

chic noir and mag hag -- what has happened to vibe? did anyone see that ridiculous piece on dizzee rascal. it mistakes grime as a mixture of american rap and other genres. grime is British dammit!

this cover looks good cos of barack and his cool kenyan self. i may pick it up.

Jammy Jay... update your fucking blog!

Also: what exactly IS "juice"? And is it worth of an entire issue?

Aulelia: actually, I think what Vibe meant was that grime is mainly influened by American rap, as well as loads of other genres (electro, two-step, house, etc). Dizzee himself is the first to point out that all he ever did was rip off Jay Z and put some crazy accent on it.
