Cover Battle: GQ or Time

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. This round pits GQ against Time. GQ, for its “Sexiest Women of The 21st Century” feature, put Beyonce on its cover. There is probably nothing we can say about this photograph that won’t sound 100 percent pervy, but here’s what we came up with: Are those pockets on her shorts? Hmm… Still seems pervy.

Matt Donnelly Exits LAT’s Ministry of Gossip

The beat will remain pretty much the same for entertainment journalist Matt Donnelly. But the Web traffic will be much larger, the reader comments harsher and there will now be, with any story, the walk-down-the-hall option of a synergistic TV appearance.

The Ministry of Gossip celebrity blogger got the official sendoff last night from boss Christie D’Zurilla and other LA Times colleagues, who all wished him the best of luck with new employers Yahoo! omg! and omg! Insider. The re-branded, cross-platform version of syndicated entertainment TV news magazine The Insider officially debuts January 7.

In Touch Weekly Names New Executive Editor

People senior staff writer Alexis Chiu–the author of the mag’s recent Beyonce “Most Beautiful” cover story–has a new gig. She’s just been named the new executive editor of In Touch Weekly.

Chiu will be reporting to Dan Wakeford, the editor-in-chief of Life & Style who was also just named EIC of In Touch by parent company Bauer Publishing.

People Names Beyoncé ‘Most Beautiful Woman in The World’

According to People, Beyoncé is the most beautiful woman in the world. The magazine crowned her in its upcoming double issue, which hits newsstands Friday. Beyoncé told People that her daughter, Blue Ivy, has changed her life for the better.

“I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth,” she explained. “I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this Earth.”

We have three questions:

  1. How long until Beyoncé plasters this honor all over her Tumblr?
  2. Will Jay-Z include this in a rap?
  3. How does Beanie Sigel feel about this?

The Highs and Shiloh’s of Brangelina Photo Economics

If and when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie sell their south-of-France wedding pictures to the highest bidder (and then presumably donate the proceeds to charity), it will likely fall short of the haul generated by their biological daughter Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. That’s just one of the intriguing tidbits contained in today’s Daily piece by Michelle Ruiz about the celeb shots currently most coveted by Hollywood paparazzi.

The first photos of Shiloh were sold to People magazine for a staggering $6 million, while pictures taken in Africa that confirmed the couple-status of Jolie and Pitt went for around $1 million. Ruiz estimates that Brangelina wedding day pics will net approximately $2 million:

“That’s going to be the wedding of the century,” Gary Morgan, CEO of Splash photo agency, told Flash of the nuptials. He bets the shots will be closely guarded and sold to the highest bidders in the U.S. and abroad. “They’ll revive the industry — for that week, anyway.”

Pics of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Daughter Expected to Fetch $2 Million

Not much is known about Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce and Jay-Z’s newborn baby. There are rumors swirling that she already has beef with Willow Smith and she’s prepared to release a diss track as soon as she can figure out what her toes are for, but beyond that? Nothing.

That’s why insiders are telling the New York Post that gossip rags are expected to toss about $2 million at the power couple for the chance to publish the first pictures of Blue. While that might seem like a lot, it’s actually a down time for the celebrity infant picture market.

When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had twins, they were offered about $11 million by People, and Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony got a cool $6 million for pictures of their twins.

Maybe that’s why Beyonce and Jay were stiffed: Mo babies, mo millions.

Kinder, Gentler Perez Hilton Launches Perezitos.com

As Perez Hilton approaches the one-year anniversary of a redemptive journalistic makeover, he is adding in kind to a web empire that already includes spinoffs CocoPerez.com and PerezFit.com.

The newest cog in the Perez portfolio is Perezitos.com, focused on celebrity parents and their kids, with advice from pediatricians thrown in for good measure. The man born Mario Lavandeira tells Reuters LA he’s thrilled with his new M.O.:

“I’ve had some people say they miss the old Perez but thankfully, the majority of the comments are people embracing this change and direction, and at the end of the day, the reason I made the shift was for myself,” he said. “I can still be critical, and I am, and I can still talk about celebrities, but I can do it in a way that’s not mean and hurtful and nasty. My new motto is ‘be sassy…’”
