People Magazine Is Trash!

People Magazine faces backlash for the Most Beautiful in the World cover.

People Magazine announced the most beautiful in the world again.

Julia Roberts was once again nominated by People Magazine as the Most Beautiful Woman in The World for the fifth time. The 49-year old actress who starred in the Smurfs: Lost Village gracing the tabloid has sparked controversy.

Why is People still nominating actresses who already graced the cover?

When will People Magazine recognize beauty isn't purely based on White actors and actresses?

Yeah, they nominated Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as the Most Sexist Man Alive in 2016. This came after nearly 20 years of nominating Denzel Washington and a backlash. This Most Beautiful People of last year was Jennifer Aniston. The last women of color were Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Lupita Nyong'o and Beyonce.

Clearly we got a problem with this magazine. I have names of women who could be the Most Beautiful in The World.

White women, women of color, entertainers in television and movies.

Individuals who are beautiful but never given the prestige of gracing People Magazine front covers.

Priyanka Chopra, Yasmine Al Massri, Taraji P. Henson, Kaley Cuoco, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sofia Vergara, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and so many others could have graced that damn cover.

But People wanted to stay safe by picking an actress who is best known for playing Vivian, the loveable prostitute who charmed Richard Gere's character in Pretty Woman.

People Magazine's Most Beautiful In The World Covers. Is There A Need For Change?

Yes. I am starting to notice the covers are showing more White entertainers. I am noticing that People hasn't picked a person of color in years.
No. There's no real issue with the covers. You are making too much of an issue about it. This has nothing to do with race.
I believe People is being bias to everyone by releasing these Most Beautiful in The World covers. Individuals with self-esteem issues are often shunned because of a lack of beauty.
I believe People has a right to nominate whoever they want as the Most Beautiful in The World. There are other magazines you can read if you don't like People.

Me and S.B have talked about this for years. I am getting tired of talking, blogging and reminding you about it. Maybe it's time for action. Maybe its time for People to hear our voices.

Thank you for discussing this issue that annoys me to no end. People magazine has a habit of nominating the same, washed up celebrities as being the most beautiful or the sexiest. When are they going to consider other Women of Color(Asian, Latina, Middle Eastern, American Indian, Pacific Islander, Multiracials) as well as other celebrity Black women besides Halle Berry and Beyonce the most beautiful title?

I'll never buying another issue of People magazine because they recycle the same tired people as being the most beautiful while shunning newcomers and ingenues.

Even the March 2017 issue of Vogue magazine, a magazine long criticized for not being diverse, had on its cover a diverse group of up and coming women of all colors. The April issue of Allure magazine had three women of Color on its cover. People is reactionary when it comes to diversity and demographics of this nation. Instead of showing those up and coming women like Vogue did, the magazine recycled washed-up actress Julia Roberts.
