I agree she looks like CLove and very manga, but isn't that the point of it? To take someone who is so instantly recognizable and put them in this setting, and as someone else said, I think the cheapness is part of the charm (and the intention). I think it's cute

Jessica Hart tweeted a month ago that she shot for Pop, hopefully it is for this issue

Hmm...I don't really like it, but it does feel quite POP

What in the world? Well, at least this sets POP far apart from the rest of the fashion publications...

^^ JJ took the scan from here, and just cropped the cover out, its the same as on the first page. If he had any decency he would have credited honeycombchild and tfs in the first place!

I think she really was the perfect choice for this, but i just cant like it.

When I saw the thread title, it got me excited 'cause of the fact that it's Britney. But after seeing what the cover looks like, ugh, please, enough! I'm always wondering why Katie left this publication that used to be great and unique.

Looking forward to the content though.

Annoying. I really hate it when they take things without crediting... really frustrating, but never mind.

Grazia had the exclusive on this, they had the same on the previous two issues as well. They've clearly got a little pairing going on..

I did not think of the Courtney Love when I saw the cover and preview, but of the Cicciolina and her art series with Jeff Coons: the same mix of cutesy sweetness and vulgarity, same misty lighting and humourous faux-innocence.

Imo the cover is quite a triumph.
It's actually arresting and interesting. At first I was like 'WTF is this?!' but at least I paid attention which is more that can be say of most September covers so far. And it's the most intelligent use of Britney I've seen since that Rolling Stone cover of her posing in skimpy clothes in her childhood bedroom.

It's because they're published by the same people, Bauer Media Group.

There is another cover. I think Abbey Lee had two?

Quote:
For her upcoming issue of Pop, Dasha Zhukova scored a big get: Twitter queen (and occasional singer) Britney Spears, who appears on multiple covers of the magazine. Todd Cole shot Brit-Brit for the glossy, and Takashi Murakami gave her the full kawaii Japanimation treatment. (We hear cartoon stickers will also appear throughout the mag.) Why Spears? “She’s feminine, sassy, strong-willed, determined: all the things a great Pop icon should be,” Zhukova told us from Moscow. “Couple that with some Japanese swimsuits and a Rodarte wedding gown and I think she is pretty much Pop personified!” Apparently the idea arose when Zhukova was discussing the idea of manga characters with Murakami—and voila, a cover star is born. The mag will be out September 1—it also includes a collaboration with Cindy Sherman, who reinterprets the Chanel woman, an interview with Hillary Clinton by Barbara Bush (!), and stories on Barbara Kruger, MNDR, and Martha Stewart (!!)—and we’ve got your exclusive first look at two of the covers, above.
