So news of the vanilla persuasion like the wedding between Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel wouldn’t usually fall under our Madame Noire radar, but this People magazine cover above forced our hand. We just couldn’t with this _____ cover. Questions were flying about the decision behind these poses. First off, did J.T. not learn anything from the Tom Cruise “jumping on the couch” fiasco (in case you didn’t notice, Cruise is divorced from the source of his jump-couching stunt)? Secondly, why such a corny pose for their exclusive cover? I mean, couldn’t they have thunk of something more creative? Instead of me weighing in on the symbolism of JT looking like a clown, contrasting with the image of Jessica playing the demure bride, I’d like to ask you (our very spirited readers) to chime in and let me know your thoughts.
Sidenote: Why is seemingly unrelated news of Britney Spears peaking out on the right hand side of the cover? Mighty sneaky, “People” – LOL.
