    The newsstand cover shot is beautiful. Nice amount of text and I'm used to the FAEA cover line now. Thanks for posting tarsha!

    The second (b&w) shot is good, but the other cover is not my cup of tea. Too much smile...

    I always have a have a hard time imagining Janet on the cover of fashion magazines. She just seems so out of place in the whole world of high fashion and glossy editorials (imo). Both covers are just good enough to publish, but they're nothing special.

    Harper's is in a weird place right now. They seem to be trying to do what sells, but when I read the magazine I get a sense the staff isn't comfortable with this. Thus you get half assed editorials and articles and you get cover subjects thrown down your throat that we have seen 100 times before. (I mean really, would Janet have gotten the cover if Micheal hadn't just died?)

    I know Harpers has to sell but it really isn't that hard to appeal to the masses and be creative.

    Lousy cover choice. Her career is beyond finished. Bazaar is making some very strange cover choices this year. This would be a classic example.

    definitely not. and i don't think it was very smart of the magazine to put her smiling like that on the cover when her brother has just died, especially if she's going to talk about that. it's rather inappropriate imo.

    A #1 album and a sold out tour are real signs of a finished career for any musician....

    Once again subscribers get a better cover...
