Cover Battle: Cosmopolitan or Vibe

Welcome back to FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. Today we have Cosmopolitan versus Vibe. Cosmo went with a photo of Miley Cyrus flashing enough sideboob (inner sideboob?) to make The Huffington Post’s celeb writers jump for joy.

Vibe decided to go a different route and published a head shot of the queen of hip-hop, Mary J. Blige. Is there anything more fierce than her? Honestly, Webster’s dictionary just needs to go ahead and update the definittion of fierce to simply read “Mary J.”

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
