Vogue’s Kamala Harris Cover Shoot Draws Unsavory Reviews On Social Media

On January 10, 2021, Vogue Magazine announced Vice president-elect Kamala Harris will be on the cover for the February issue.

What We Know:

  • Fans of both harris and the magazine were very disappointed with photographs taken and highlighted a pattern that the magazine constantly lacks effort when the cover features a woman of color. One Twitter user wrote, “Anyone shocked by the poor quality of Kamala’s Vogue cover hasn’t paid attention to Anna Wintour’s bullshit w/people of color. It spans decades. Team Kamala should’ve known better…” 
  • Many felt the images did not live up to the expectations of the magazine that have captured beautifully showcased celebrities and politicians before. Fans were upset with the color contrasts and fashion choices made for Harris calling it “poor quality” and a “washed-out mess.”
  • Washington Post critic Robin Givhan wrote, “The cover did not give Kamala D. Harris due respect. It was overly familiar. It was a cover image that, in effect, called Harris by her first name without invitation…. In using the more informal image for the print edition of the magazine, Vogue robbed Harris of her roses.”
  • Yashar Ali, a writer for New York Magazine, wrote a tweet saying the pictures shown will not be the real cover.

Vogue did release a statement, ” “The team at Vogue loved the images Tyler Mitchell shot and felt the more informal image captured Vice President-elect Harris’s authentic, approachable nature — which we feel is one of the hallmarks of the Biden/Harris administration.” Harris’s team has not commented on what happened.

Former NFL Champ Nate Burleson joins CBS Mornings

Published

on

Former NFL player Nate Burleson has officially made his hosting debut on the newly branded morning talk show, CBS Mornings.

What We Know:

  • It was announced earlier this month that Burleson would replace Anthony Mason. Previously Mason joined Gayle King and Tony Doukoupil as host of the former CBS This Morning.  The show was rebranded in tandem to the relocation of their set to Times Square and Burleson joining the cast.
  • Since 2017, former NFL player Burleson has been the host of Good Morning Football on the NFL Network and has served as an analyst on The NFL Today on CBS. Burleson will continue his role on The NFL Today.

  • Burleson is the second former NFL player to join a network morning TV show, with Michael Strahan playing a major role as a co-host on ABC‘s Good Morning America.

Burleson credits Michael Strahan as the ‘blueprint’ for his career path, explaining, “He’s one of those individuals that I took a liking to once I retired because he rewrote the blueprint. I don’t want to say that he is the blueprint, because there has been plenty of players that have transitioned out of the game into TV. There have been African American men and women before him that have done the same thing, but he is a guy that has shown me the lay of the land, especially being a transplant from the West Coast to now New York.”
