Newsstand: The Latest Magazine Covers

I am a lover of magazines. I always take a good minute to look through the covers on offer before buying. The cover star definitely has to speak to me but the headlines and stories also have to speak to me. Anyway here are the latest magazine covers that managed to grab my attention.

Taylor Swift covers US Cosmopolitan. Her look doesn’t suit the immature nature of her music but it is beautiful nonetheless.

Russel Simmons covers Destiny Man magazine. He recently visited South Africa to talk about success and self-mastery at the Mazda Destiny Forum. There is also an interview with South African musical legend Ray Phiri.

Britney covers Lucky magazine. I for one, am excited for some new music from Britney. She is currently judging American idol so hopefully she won’t let such a great platform go to waste.

Cheryl Cole covers UK Glamour. I didn’t know much about Cheryl till recently and I must say, I quite like her.

The 29-year-old singer shares with the magazine how it was like to go through a public divorce, from soccer star Ashley Cole.

“You go through something like a divorce and nothing else matters in the world except that. At the time I just thought ‘I can’t carry on’ I couldn’t understand why I had to go through all that public pressure when I was already going through the hardest thing in the world. To have the added stress of being scrutinised and criticised made it insanely hard”, Cheryl explains to Glamour.

Destiny magazine celebrates its 5th anniversary with editor Khanyi Dhlomo and two lucky readers on the cover.

Last, but not least, the one that everyone has been talking about, Solange Knowles covers SA Elle magazine. She shot the cover in Cape Town and also used the opportunity to shoot her music video for ‘Losing You’.

These are the magazines that have managed to grab my fancy at this point in time.

Peace and love!

      Thank you. Yes. She mentioned it in her cosmo interview as well. I think we just make too much of an irrelevant issue. Thanks for reading :-)
