Because there’s no more NEVER BEFORE SEEN naked pictures of Marilyn Monroe to publish and Rolling Stone stole their Boston Bomber idea, Vanity Fair put the late Princess Diana on the cover of their September issue.
The title of Vanity Fair’s Princess Di piece is, “The Grandmother Prince George Never Knew,” and surprisingly it’s not a fictional story about what kind of memaw she would’ve been. (Newsweek is probably going to do that as a follow-up to their Zombie Princess Diana cover.) VF’s cover story is all about how surgeon Hasnat Khan was the true love of her life and blah blah blah blah blah… VF is covering Princess Di’s relationship with Hasnat Khan, because that movie, starring Naomi Watts, about her life with him comes out in the UK next month.
Some think this is tacky, but I’d rather have a Princess Di cover than a GOOP cover. Lainey says that Vanity Fair wanted to do a cover story about Goopy Paltrow, but she refused to speak to them and pose for them. Nothing is more perfect than a picture of Goopy’s face under the word VANITY, but she doesn’t agree. Apparently, she thinks the magazine is “off-brand” for her now. Goopy is right. I once saw a woman in Tory Burch loafers reading Vanity Fair while sitting in coach (NOT EVEN COACH PLUS!) on a JetBlue flight to Long Beach. Us regulars don’t deserve to read the platinum-covered words of GOOPY! So congrats to us for not getting another cover with Goopy’s face on it and congrats to Vanity Fair for not fitting with Goopy’s brand! (“Michael, you dumb bitch, if Goopy was on the cover of VF, you would’ve gotten a minimum of 18 posts out of it.” – you “I hate the truth.” – me)
