Jim Crow Celeb Mags

The NY Post asks if the celebrity media is racist. We wonder, how can they pose a question to such an obvious fact?:

A top tabloid [says] that Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s wedding was played down by the weeklies because “African-Americans don’t sell covers.”

Of the big five celebrity glossies out midweek, only Us Weekly gave Beyoncé the top spot on the cover. Other magazines gave her second billing to the likes of Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Aniston.

Even wedding photos make less money for black stars, says another source. “Eva Longoria can get $1 million for wedding photos, but without the expectation of cover sales, Beyoncé might have gotten as little as $250,000 if she had sold hers,” says a top editor.

We are sick of their racist bullsh*t. The fact that Beyonce and Jay-Z’s nuptials played second fiddle to that hapless stank heffah Britney Spears is ridiculous, but to get secong billing to that “Witch Hagar” looking washed up has-been Jennifer Aniston is just offensive.

We advise Jay-Z and Bey not sell one wedding pic to any of those racist-ass trash trailing mags unless it’s for top dollar – maybe they shouldn’t even sell them at all. Discuss

    This should be filed under “who cares” because meanwhile, education disparity is at an all-time high and we are getting ready to graduate a group of african american high school seniors where low SATs and GPAs and skills are at an all time high.

    Oh Jigga is already all over the racist media…I was actually reading his last interview with XXL and he touched on the topic of racism in the media.

    I hope they sell their photos to Essence mag…that would be a goodlook.

  • lil latte

    what does it mean when some one writes *dead* in their comment?

  • donovan

    Please! If black celebs don’t sell then they don’t sell. That’s not racist that’s just good business. When’s the last time you bought something because Beyonce was on the cover… I’ll wait. Beyonce doesn’t garner any interest into her personal life because she is a press bot, very beauty queen in her approach to the media, not a real person we care about and want to know every detail about. Britney Spears on the other hand let’s it all hang out people are addicted to her private life, so yes she does sell covers, and no beyonce does not.

  • bree

    Besides they are boring Jay Z is interesting Bey has been the same since 8 years ago. Nothing new to report there

    Peope are getting bored

  • Kompton's Kutie

    Who don’t care about Black folks News?! The media hypes everything up in the first place, so when they do follow Black folks that’s when people will care.

    *But at the same time I’m glad they don’t follow Black celebs every single moment, because this way all the White people will continue to look bad.

    They don’t realize it but it’s keeping the White people down. And when they mess up for every little thing people lose respect.

    Look at Paris, Brittany, Hillary, etc.

  • Lady Architect


    I agree with you. IF you think about it how long has Jay and Bee been together..6years. The mainstream media can care less about their marriage because they basically lived as if they were married for years and honestly Bey is very overexposed. Not that I agree with Britt being on the cover, but it sells and mags are gonna put out what readers buy so they can make money. Besides that, if they put out the same covers about Bey that they do about Britt than black ppl would be mad saying that they use us for negativity. I say let them make the fools of their own, it doesn’t bother me. These black celebrities need to sell to mags like S2S, jet, essence, ebony, black enterprise, today’s black women, etc. to uplift our own instead of shooting for people because they put in the highest bid just to be on pg 15.

    At Southern Belle they were on the cover of US Weekly. Normally white stars are on the cover of all them.. When something big happens. But I dont want to see bey or jay either I rather read about it online because in mags when Bey was on the cover in all the mags she always says the samething.. I’d rather read about Alicia, Jurnee and Halle etc

  • jogger

    Isn’t Eva Longoria Mexican and her husband black? Didn’t they have a big castle wedding that they had talked about in interviews months prior and invited other celebs to… Didn’t Jay and B do some undercover small ‘don’t ask don’t tell wedding’?

  • Don't mind me

    Exactly theres only show much of that gurl you can see before you have seen it all before and lets face it she doesn’t interest you with her mentality or points of view because she doesn’t pocess such things.

    Make her drop on her face though and that will be on the news lol

  • Kompton's Kutie


    True. But even when “the Others” do private, hush hush ceremonies, the media stalk them to try to get a pic.

  • Don't mind me

    If you put someone on the cover you have to atleast fill two pages of something interesting about them

    I don’t enjoy the sound that comes out of rhi or beys mouths and thats my opinion.

  • http://@yahoo demita

    jay-bey may have put it all an video cam to keep for the chilluns when they come
