I don't have anything against Beyonce. In fact, I like the cover. SI swimsuit edition covers have been too gimmicky recently and somewhat boring.

I just think that the Swimsuit edition cover should be a model b/c the SI cover is HUGE for a model. It's all over the press and can really help their careers, i.e. Tyra, Heidi and Rebecca Romijn. And it's only once a year. A Molly Sims, Jessica Miller or Jessica White (love her!) should have been on the cover. They have curves and have paid their dues in this magazine (and I know paying your dues shouldn't matter).

And yes they'll sell a lot of covers with a Beyonce, but a banging cover of any of the above models would sell well too. Guys love Beyonce, but they love Jessica Miller, et al too!

Damn Beyonce...God.

So glad to see Jessica White though. I've never heard her speak until the video on the site. So cute.

I didn't know Selita was allowed for SI. The girls look absolutely amazing. Gorgeous curves. Give me any of them on the cover anyday, except Beyonce overrated ***.

I don't see why any of you are suprised... I mean, tFsers and fashion insiders are the only ones who care about models these days. It's the era of the celebrity now, and dudes know and love Beyonce.

i thin kits because someone like beyonce doesn't appeal to women. i thin kits too overt for us and she takes on the role of competitor. models are these far-away concepts. we never would expect to look like them, and they have their niches. beyonce is a regular girl that happens to be hotter than all the other regular girls.

the whole issue looks hilarious, I dont mind Beyonce at all, in fact, I couldnt care less. :p
...but the inside photos! ...they look like an old catalogue from the 80s, whoever shot them. and the bikinis are HUGE ..it's boring but the fact that it's supposed to be a sexy issue makes it hilarious.. they should flip through Número or something.

I stopped reading the thread after your post. I couldn't agree more. I am so mad that they put Beyonce on the cover One of the last covers that featured models and they chose her?!?! Marissa is the best SI model, she deserves a cover. Sorry for my rant

I'm sorry to disagree, I don't think Beyonce is necessarily a big seller. Men would buy the issue regardless. But I think they'd be even further enticed with a hot BIKINI MODEL on the cover. Sorry, but I respectfully disagree.

I couldn't disagree with you more. So you are saying Giselle, Karina, whoever, would sell more than Beyonce, on the cover? WOW! I understand that you all want models on these covers, but you have to remember politics. It doesnt make sense to think a model will sell more than a A-list celebrity like Beyonce.

Really? I think Gisele or even Karolina to a lesser extent could sell just as much if not more copies of SI then say Beyonce. Normally I would say it's because Gisele and Karolina not only appeal to men but also to women and that's why they can sell more (I mean, that's why VS picked them up right?), but I just think that if men want to look at T&A, it doesn't matter who's on the cover as long as she's smokin' hot.

Regardless of everything, I just don't like Beyonce on the cover. Not because it should go to a model or anything, I just don't happen to like her on the cover.

ur forgetting that compared to beyonce gisele has no t&a. she is built like a surfboard with breasts. karolina is just managing to get as many curves as the avg woman, but nothing spectacular, and her face is an aquired taste. while they get female draws, why is it tragic that for once a woman who is sexy outright gets the job vs some "edgier" model? (remember these girls got made of in school for a reason)
