Not the girl with the most cake


Dude, Scarlett, you are not Courtney Love. Not even a little. I am also pretty sure that you did not play guitar on your record, which makes this cover even more preposterous. So let's not do this again, ok? It's sort of embarrassing (for you, that is).


On a lighter note, this issue of Nylon is actually really, really, good. It's the Myspace issue (which I guess is the new music issue), and the bands featured are totally rad: Kim Gordon & Free Kitten, The Breeders, Portishead, a super cute shoot with The Like and of course, Miss Courtney Love herself. It's almost like reading Nylon when I was in high school. Almost.

I haven't received this issue yet but I agree with you on the cover.

I love Scar Jo. . . but I didn't like this cover either. The composition is strange, the styling . . . nope. The facial expression says "I just farted. You wanna make something of it?" It just doesn't work.

yes!! fucking scarlett johansson thinks that just becuase she was in ghost world in the 90's she can, like, do a tom waits cover ablum and pose for the cover of nylon doing a like mary-kate esque ripp-off of courtney love with a guitar and just looking like a full house girl gone sour....
