This can't be good: this week's edition of Newsweek magazine features an illustration of U.S. President Barack Obama on the cover as "Shiva the Destroyer" doing the "dance of death." By the way, Shiva is considered to be a major Hindu deity, or a God.
Mr. Obama has gone to great lengths to convince Americans that he is a Christian and not a Muslim as polls have shown. So this cover won't help the situation much.
I had my doubts that this was a real cover, so I called my contact over at Newsweek to confirm. This issue hits newsstands on November 22nd.
In happier news, Khloe Odom and her husband Lamar get into the holiday spirit on the cover of People Extra magazine.
Khloe wrote on her blog:
“Hi dolls! I’m so excited to share with you part of Lamar’s and my feature in People Magazine’s Holiday Issue!! This is going to be our first Christmas at our new house so it’s a really big deal for us. Last year we tried to go all out in our temporary home at the SLS Hotel, but even with the decorations, it still just wasn’t the same. This year we’ve taken holiday spirit to a whole new level.”

I wouldn't be a loyal British subject if I didn't include at least one of the hundreds of covers featuring royal couple Prince Williams and Kate Middleton, who announced their engagement this week. I hear the British tabloids are roasting Kate over there, calling her a 'commoner' which means not royal. Normally, the royals marry other blue blood royals.
And finally, Ryan Reynolds is People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2010. I don't see it, but then again, I'm not supposed to.
