@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."

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."

Chaka Khan

Music legend Chaka Khan is best known for her timely hit songs such as "Tell Me Something Good" (1975) and "I'm every Woman" (1978), but she is concerned about today's women's obsession with Trans Glam makeup.

At 64, Chaka is wary of today's makeup artists -- mostly feminine men who are heavy handed with their makeup brushes, so she chooses to apply her own makeup these days.

Kim Kardashian covers Vogue Brazil

Socialite Kim Kardashian wishes she was a superstar on the level of Marilyn Monroe -- who is deceased. Even in death, Marilyn Monroe is a bigger star than Kim will ever be.

When Kim is dead and gone, no one will remember her. But Marilyn Monroe's star will continue to shine brightly.

Maybe that's why Kim is channeling Marilyn on the cover of Vogue Brazil magazine?

Kim Kardashian Kanye West cover Vogue Beyonce covers Vogue

Those early sales estimates for Kanye West's and Kim Kardashian's controversial Vogue cover were a bit premature.

Early estimates called for the Kim/Kanye cover to outsell the Vogue covers featuring Beyonce and first lady Michelle Obama. But while Kim and Kanye did outsell Rihanna's Vogue cover, they don't come close to touching Beyonce's cover sales.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover Vogue

Vogue Editor-for-life Anna Wintour was adamant that socialite Kim Kardashian would NEVER grace the cover of Vogue magazine. But Kim's baby daddy Kanye West and Anna are good friends. So it was inevitable that Kanye would put pressure to bear on Wintour to put Kim on the cover. Wintour and West reached a compromise and put both Kim and Kanye on the cover of the April issue of Vogue. This will very likely be the lowest selling issue in the magazine's history. Vogue is not the fashion Bible that it once was. And putting Kim and Kanye on the cover is the magazine world's equivalent of slumming.

    Music producer Kanye West claims his future wife, Kim Kardashian, is more "intriguing" and "influential" than first lady Michelle Obama.

    West, 36, made the controversial statements in a new interview with On Air with Ryan Seacrest, this week. West is still insulted that Vogue magazine cut Kim out of a photo featuring him at the MET Costume Gala earlier this year. He is also peeved that Vogue Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour passed Kim over for a coveted cover.

    "There’s no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be on the cover of Vogue,” he whined. “She’s like the most intriguing woman right now. She’s got Barbara Walters calling her like everyday.”

Wintour was angry at Kim for wearing a simply horrid dress to her MEt Gala. It was the first (and last) time Wintour invited Kim to attend.

    Anna Wintour is not playing with Kim Kardashian.

    Kardashian's sperm donor, rapper Kanye West, 35, reportedly begged Vogue's 63-year-old Editor-in-chief to give Kim a chance to attend the ultra swanky 2013 Met Gala earlier this week.

    But Kim, 32, decided to show up to Wintour's respectable gala wearing a floral sofa slip cover. The disrespect was too much for the fashion maven who once compared Kim to a pair of socks.

    Beyonce covers Vogue

    Oops, my bad. It isn't Vogue's world domination issue, it's their "Power 2013' issue. But they might as well have named it World Domination, because that's what Beyonce is struggling to accomplish. If you're like me and you prayed that there would no more sightings of Beyonce after the Super Bowl, you will be sadly disappointed. Mrs. Carter simply will not sit her azz down somewhere.

    The video of Beyonce's behind-the-scenes Power shoot is posted after the break.
