LaLa Covers PYNK Magazine’s Premiere Issue

Mommy, NBA wife and rising mogul LaLa Anthony covers the premiere issue of PYNK Magazine. Inside she discusses an offer from hit show, Basketball Wives and her being referred to as ‘the first lady of New York’.

On Basketball Wives
“I was offered a spot on the show. I turned it down. I have absolutely nothing against basketball wives, the show Basketball Wives, or anything like that. But I pride myself in being more than just a basketball wife. I understand that’s something that I am, but that’s not a title that I want to define me. I’d rather be known as a mom, a businesswoman, a producer, an actress, a TV host. I just felt like that didn’t fit who I was and where my career was trying to go.”

On Being Referred To As The First Lady Of New York
“I kind of laugh when people say it. It’s an honor to be called [The First Lady Of New York.] For people to even put us in the same category as Jay-Z and Beyonce — that’s just an honor in itself, but I don’t deal well with titles. To me, actions speak more than anything. It’s about being in New York now and being active, as New Yorker’s get active in the community. And getting out there and showing people what we are about outside of our businesses, with philanthropy and different things like that. That’s how you prove who you really are. You can be given a label and a title but what does that mean when there is nothing behind it? So for us, it’s about really embracing the city of New York. We kind of rushed and got here quickly, but now that we are settling in we’re starting to get out there and do some charity work and let people really see what we’re about as individuals, and as a couple.”

Covergirl Mag Coverage!

The self-proclaimed Barbie and most talked about female rap artist, Nicki Minaj, is no stranger to a magazine cover. This time she is fierce yet a bit spaced on the cover of OUT magazine. For those of you new to OUT, it is a very popular LGBT ( Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) magazine. Pics of the Nicki shoot below and read the article at OUT.com

Known to mix patterns beautifully, Solange Knowles, graces the cover of FASHIZBLACK magazine. Inside she talks about her style and more.

I was standing by a news stand on Wall st. in NYC just the other day. I was conversing on my cell phone but was immediately put off when I saw two girls point and laugh at the magazine cover above. The above cover is very controversial due to these reasons listed all over the net: race, weight and possible retouching of actual skin color.

Shine from Yahoo had this to say:

In the world of American fashion magazines, women of color have notoriously been underrepresented, pretty much since the birth of print. Ditto the plus-size population, who go almost entirely absent from the pages of big-name publications, as if they don’t exist.

So it is safe to say that actress, Gabourey Sidibe is breaking down barriers and I couldn’t be prouder or happier. It makes me feel like I could be on a magazine cover one day but I will stick to blogging. Just knowing that myself as well as other African-American plus size women have that opportunity is an amazing feeling. It is no long a dream for my fellow thick and curvy sistahs. It is now achievable. I commend Gabourey for being a brave and beautiful trendsetter.
