Magazine Cover of the Week: Diversity on American Horror Story.


This edition of Entertainment Weekly came out while I was in the U.S., but with less than three American dollars to my name when I hit LAX on Tuesday night, I was sadly unable to pick up a copy. (I thought a measly $2.50 cheeseburger from Burger King to sustain me was a tad more important.) But I did get to flick through it at my hotel’s gym that morning, and it looks like a corker. Did we expect anything less from American Horror Story, which just keeps getting better with each season?

You’d be hard pressed to beat last year’s Asylum, however the diverse cast, consisting of two women over the age of sixty, several cast members of colour, body diversity and Jamie Brewer, an actress with Down syndrome, and scintillating subject matter make Coven a riot to watch. The fact that Entertainment Weekly chose to put three older women, one of which is a WOC, on their cover make for yet another AHS talking point.

Magazines: Cover of the Week—Mike Works His Magic…

Is it bad to drool over the combination of Channing Tatum and Joe Manganiello with their shirts off? Sorry, let me rephrase that: seeing as Tatum and Manganiello, who’s been quoted as saying he “could care less” about being typecast, are shirtless in just about everything they do (and Magic Mike‘s Matthew McConaughey, for that matter), it’s par for the course, isn’t it? Or should we be ashamed of oggling them as men often do to women? Is it role reversal at its best? Does this mean feminism’s over?! Put your shirt back on Joe, I can’t think straight!
