I love this!!!!!

It's meant to look cute and superficial - I think it's so fun and quirky.

Can't wait for this to come out!

It's like they're bringing Britney back to her roots

i always found the japanese fascination with lolitas creepy and this cover pretty much solidifies that. Brit isn't cute or 17 anymore. she just looks crazy on the cover

Are you @#$%*! kidding me? Well trust me I wont be buying this issue of POP it has Britney on the cover and it looks like a Japanese magazine's font got mixed in with this mags normal front type. I can't even possible fathom how anyone would walk past it in a book shop and want to buy the magazine since it looks like a little kid magazine.

One of the tackiest cover of the year for my taste... looks like a japanese teenager magazine, LOL.

I gasped when I saw Britney written on the title of the thread, she's one of the rare celebrities I've always appreciated and supported (for some reasons ). Although she has never struck me as relevant fashion-wise, I'd rather see her over any other "style icon" who has countlessly had her face plastered over the cover of a fashion magazine.

As for the covers in themselves, I'm literally appalled at so much tackiness involved for the sake of making them eye-catchy. Seeing this actually prompts me to revise my opinion as to US Vogue and its generic covers... at least they're not as off-putting as those two.

Looks like some trashy Japanese magazine.

But haven't something like 40 models shot for this issue?

I really don't understand some of the comments. Isn't the whole point that it's tacky, poppy, overloaded and resembles an Asian teenage magazine...? I'm pretty sure that's the exact thing they're aiming for, especially by featuring Britney..

I actually like the tackiness about it, they didnt dilute that exaggerated Japanese aspect

I think this is so utterly genius! The idea of stylizing the cover to look like an Japanese fan-zine sort of magazine is great. Murakami might not be the most original choice, but the weight of his work in that "world" is undeniable. I love this!

Oh my, there are no words to describe in this cover. It's perfectly brilliant in its kitschness and yet a bit revolting to look at.
