Mumz the Werd T's + Lebron Sells Vogue Short

*Want to see the July issue of Vogue before it hits newsstands?
Here's a video:

Music is a bit strange, but...you get the point.
*Despite the controversy surrounding the Lebron/Giselle/King-Kong cover, the issue did not prove to be a winner...
Portfolio says, "The issue sold 350,000 copies on the newsstand, according to ABC Rapid Report, well below last year's first-half average of 452,207. It's Vogue's worst-selling April issue since 2001; the month is usually an above-average one for sales thanks to the annual "Shape Issue."" Interesting. Though the issue failed to attract readers, it wasn't the worst selling cover. That honor belongs to Gwyneth Paltrow...
...whose May cover sold a mere 310,000 copies. So the blond ice queen cover sold the worst??? Really?? Still, I bet you money Vogue will use the Lebron 'poor selling' cover as reason to leave African-American men out the spotlight for the next century...but Gwyneth will be on there next year. Bet you money!!! [Portfolio]
*If you love t-shirts, check out the new ultra indie underground clothing line Mumz The Werd...
...it's made by two young California guys: Arthur, a designer, and Jordan, an independent filmmaker and visual effects artist. The cool cartoon inspired t's (they use 3D ink and glow in the dark!) sell for $45 a pop. Check 'em at their website, www.mumzthewerd.com or on myspace at www.myspace.com/mumzthewerdclothing.

Maybe the Gwenyth cover didn't sell so well due to the lebron fiasco right before it.(I don't think Sex and the City SJP Should count...LOL) Up until that cover I was all about getting heavy into my fashion and ready to get a subscription. After seeing the last two covers of people who looked like me looking a hot mess with their mouths open.....I was done...(atleast until some changes are made.) I will pay the extra bucks to get the Italian Vogue. ;-)
