this is what i had to ask the newsagent person for a paper bag, in which to carry this out of the store so the children wouldn't see it...

i love my NW magazine. i know, it's trash. it's worse than trash, it's the same trash each week, just some different frocks and a small variety of rotating cover stories:

1. stars without makeup
2. celebrity plastic surgery horrors
3. stars who are skinny
4. celebrities who are fat

that's it. i swear.

i know i am a fairly clever person. i am pretty street smart, i am bookish, i am old enough to raise a child, as well as a golden retriever.

i also love this magazine. i know. i know. it's all wrong.

but even i question it, when i am too self-conscious to be seen carrying this:














i don't know if you can see it properly, nor do you, but the centre pic is of alicia duvall (who is she?) who has big fake boobs. they have photoshopped the nipples out (whether to comply with the anti-rude legislation or so they wouldn't interfere with the headline)

inside, in the feature section, they have yellow stars over the nipples.

that's all i've got today. i'll be working on the meme for bevis.

Just saw it in the milkbar. It scared the bjezus outta me.
Why is she showing them to a camera? Why does she look so happy about it? Who the hell is she?

I was looking at it at lunchtime and wondering WHERE THE HELL HER NIPPLES WERE?? and thinking it was obviously a side effect of the hideous surgery... they photoshopped them out?? they look obsecenely painful..
also i was thinking who the hell is she anyway? and why is she so proud of and showing off those monstrosities when they look so diseased and scary.

Wait, did i say i was reading the mag earlier.... err... carry on...

MG & Dxxxx... never be ashamed to admit you read NW. It means that you may well be able to answer the following question (which has been bugging me all day):

Is Jennifer Aniston really pregnant to Vince Vaughan?

Darcy said...

Oh, I'm so out of this club.

Sorry.

Dxxxx said...

Sure Darcy....

As for JA & VV.. I'm not sure. So the rumour goes...

Fat star has baby after plastic surgery disaster, is dumped by boyfriend who has run off with another a-list actress.

...would be a cover story made in NW heaven.

(never been a one, but was once quoted for expert comment in NW!)

Nipples being blurred or covered in stars. You have to love that. Of course if it is was a picture of somebody being decapitated that would be fine.

What does it say about our society when networks are afraid to show male and female genitalia, but hundreds of people getting slaightered in a crappy action film is perfectly acceptable?

I was not aware of that.

debs said...

just flicking through it at the checkout without actually paying for it is ok, right?..... right?

Dxxxx said...

Can i just say I didn't buy it. My workmate bought it and I was reading it at lunch time.
That is all.

I reckon NW have outdone themselves with this one. And I'm afraid to say I was drawn to this issue in the newsagent like a moth to a flame. Absolutely. fucking. horrifying. tits.
