@Klossfilms for British Vogue

American singer Lizzo graces the December 2019 cover of British Vogue magazine. But not all of her fans are excited for her first ever Vogue cover.

Lizzo was styled in a black Versace frock with a feather boa in B&W photographs shot by @Klossfilms. A cheap photo filter effect makes Lizzo appear 3 sizes smaller - which doesn't suit her fans who complained about the unnecessary filter effect.

One fan tweeted: "I love Lizzo so much and am so happy she's on the Vogue UK cover BUT why did they put that ugly filter on her portrait ???"

Another user tweeted: "This cheap glitch / acid blur effect is homophobic".

Lizzo told British Vogue that she felt worthless growing up because thick women like her weren't represented in fashion magazines.

"When you don't see yourself, you start to think something's wrong with you. Then you want to look like those things and when you realize it's a physical impossibility, you start to think, 'What the fuck is wrong with me?' I think that took a greater toll on me, psychologically, growing up than what anyone could have said to me."

GQ magazine

Effeminate musician Pharrell Williams is featured on the cover of GQ magazine's 'New Masculinity' issue.

In GQ's November issue Pharrell Williams apologizes for his masculinity and says he was "embarrassed" for perpetuating rape culture in his 2013 hit "Blurred Lines".

"Some of my old songs, I would never write or sing today. I get embarrassed by some of that stuff," the 46-year-old Aries said.

"It just took a lot of time and growth to get to that place... I think 'Blurred Lines' opened me up. I didn't get it at first. Because there were older white women who, when that song came on, they would behave in some of the most surprising ways ever. And I would be like, wow. They would have me blushing. So when there started to be an issue with it, lyrically, I was like, What are you talking about? There are women who really like the song and connect to the energy that just gets you up. And I know you want it - women sing those kinds of lyrics all the time. So it's like, What's rapey about that?"

The father of four said he realized that men use the same sort of language when taking advantage of biological women.

"...and it doesn't matter that that's not my behavior. Or the way I think about things. It just matters how it affects women. And I was like, Got it. I get it. Cool. My mind opened up to what was actually being said in the song and how it could make someone feel."

Rihanna isn't fazed by people speculating if she's pregnant because she "dreams" of becoming a mom one day. At 31, the Barbadian pop star still has time to become a mom in the foreseeable future.

The "Work" singer has been at the center of pregnancy rumors over the past couple of months. The rumors intensified when she was spotted with what appeared to be a baby bump that turned out to be a FUPA (fat in upper pubic area).

The U.S. Vogue cover girl addressed the speculation with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Winter in the November 2019 issue of the magazine.

While Rihanna acknowledged that "a lot of woman get very defensive" about pregnancy talk, she insisted she's fine with it - because she secretly wishes the rumors were true.

"It's personal, it's our bodies, and of course it's our time," she told TV show Extra. "It's not necessarily everyone's dream to be a mom... but it's mine, so I'm fine. Anna just wants to know what the people want to know," she said.

The Vogue cover - Rihanna's sixth for the fashion publication - is also her favorite cover of them all, because she's showcasing her own Fenty fashion line.

"To see her (Anna) be so supportive — it's great to see us supporting each other, and it's always an honor," the star continued. "This is unlike any cover I have done with Vogue (because) I am wearing my own stuff."
