Looks like Taylor Swift is even getting into all the Eminem hype recently and decided to do a cover of one of his best songs, “Lose Yourself”. Check it out below and let us know what you think!
The other day we reported Kendrick covering GQ magazine and this time we’ve got Justin Timberlake on the cover as one of the “Men of the Year”. He obviously had a crazy year releasing two albums and going platinum with both of them. Or one album with two parts, however you want to look at it.
“Medusa head on me like I’m Luminatti!” Rihanna takes that bar and turns it into her cover for British GQ. Looking good as always. Issue hits stands October 31st.
After last night’s performances and cyphers, it’s no surprise that these guys are on the cover of XXL. Definitely some of the best lyricists in the game right now. From left to right we’ve got Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q, Kendrick Lamar, and Jay Rock.
Robin Thicke has been on a tare recently so it’s no surprise that we’ll be seeing him on a lot more covers. Here’s one of the most recent ones that just surfaced today. Him and Janelle Monae on the cover of VIBE. This is also VIBE’s 20th anniversary issue.
The headline on this magazine is definitely going to stir up a lot of “Throne” talk. On newsstands August 20th.
ON THE NEW ALBUM: I remember coming into this year thinking, “How am I going to cut through all these people and shine?” I’ve never been part of a year when so many legends are dropping projects. How am I going to be seen? I’m going to be like the kid waving in the background in the photo with all of his tall relatives. And, I guess, those were my initial thoughts, and not to say that I haven’t enjoyed some of the stuff that has come out this year, but it didn’t pan out the way I thought it was going to. I think I am going for it, to really establish what are murmurs or things being said quietly, “Um, I think that Drake might actually…” On September 17th I want people to be like, “Oh, we were right.”
ON HIS IMAGE: Do I think that if I didn’t have, for lack of a better term, a unique look about me, if I was from somewhere in America and if I hadn’t been on a kids TV show [Degrassi: The Next Generation], would I be as famous? I don’t know, man. Honestly, I don’t think so. I was just some young kid on a TV show. And I haven’t become anything else while I’ve been in this position. It’s not like I got here and was like, “Oh, got to switch up my image.” I don’t wake up nervous. I feel like maybe a lot of these guys do. How old are you, really? What is your background, really? What have you really done in the drug game, in the thug game?
ON THE COMPETITION: It’s tough for me. That’s a guy I can’t pretend not to like. He’s the guy to me, in a lot of ways. That’s Kanye West. But I’m also here to be the best. I’m here to surpass. I’m here to outdo. I’m ready for whatever with anybody.
ON HIS SUCCESS: I get Jewish people coming up to me proud like, “Mazel Tov, bro. Come to my house for Shabbat dinner.”
This issue won’t be on newsstands until the 25th of this month but you can read the entire article HERE.
Once I saw this video, I got up and knew that it had to be shared with our audience. This soldier covers Rihanna’s “Stay” and almost sounds exactly like her, if not better. Well maybe not better, but he definitely kills it. Check out the footage below.
There you have it, as basic as it gets. When the music is great, there’s no need for over the top bullshit. Yeezus drops a month from now.
Kate Upton gets another magazine cover and this time she’s on the front of Vogue. This issue goes on sale May 21st.
