Rihanna‘s Nightmare” is the tag line to a haunting image of the R&B/Pop singer on the cover of People magazine’s latest issue.

The tabloid of record takes readers inside the “arguments, jealousy and hotel-room trashing” between Rihanna and Chris Brown that “led to the violence”!

While Star magazine wins the sensation headline contest (“I Still Love Him!”), Blindie can’t help but to believe People‘s credibility on the leak-proof case!

Color on the Cover: ‘Bang’-ing Jessica Alba Appears on Elle‘s March 2009 Issue

Posted on February 9, 2009 with No Comments

Latina beauty and new mommy Jessica Alba appears on the spring fashion issue of Elle.

Besides talking about her new life as a mom to daughter Honor, Alba discusses being dubbed exotic in Hollywood’s diluted pool of blondes.

“Anyone who’s part of pop culture is going to be sensationalized and spun into something, some one-liner,” she tells the magazine. “Also, there aren’t many other stars, besides Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez, who most people in the world can related to.”

But Blindie applauds Alba for this line: “We look like people of the world – I can kind of mix in with girls in Asia, South America, Europe.”

Posted on November 6, 2008 with No Comments

Adding another major magazine cover to his historic pile, President-Elect Barack Obama graces the cover of Time magazine, with the tag line: “Change Has Come to America.”

In a cover story titled, “How Obama Rewrote the Book,” writer Nancy Gibbs says:

Some princes are born in palaces. Some are born in mangers. But a few are born in the imagination, out of scraps of history and hope. Barack Obama never talks about how people see him: I’m not the one making history, he said every chance he got. You are.

Color on the Cover: Eva Mendes’ Hot Interview

Posted on July 15, 2008 with 1 Comment

The recently-rehabbed actress Eva Mendes appears on the August cover of Interview magazine. Mendes, who is also the newest face for Calvin Klein Underwear, not only looks stunning in her steamy covershot, she also talks about some serious issues in the pop culture magazine.

Mendes, who made history with Will Smith in 2005′s Hitch, says of racism in Hollywood:

“What makes it frustrating is when a director or a studio head doesn’t see me for the same part that they’ll see, let’s say, Drew Barrymore for. Drew’s a great friend of mine. But it’s like, ‘No, we want more of an American type of girl.’ And it’s like, America has opened up. I’m an American girl, born and raised.”

And being Latina in Hollywood isn’t necessarily easy, but she doesn’t call it a challenge:

“I would never call it a challenge. I think being a woman in Hollywood is a big enough challenge. It really is, man. I don’t want to be one of those people who complain. But the lack of roles out there–it’s unbelievable. I read a lot of scripts….But there are many times that being Latin has actually helped me, being a Cuban-American has helped me.”
