Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. This week we have Details taking on Billboard.
Details features a photo of Brad Pitt wearing an outfit that only he could pull off. Somehow, we view this cover and don’t think, “Why is this guy dressed like an eccentric and perhaps intoxicated 1920s airline baron?” Instead, we think “Silk yellow shirts with giant collars are great looking.” Behold the power of Pitt.
Billboard’s cover, meanwhile, has Usher sporting a crown. We have to admit, Usher is definitely the king of Getting College Kids to Dance and Make Other Regrettable Choices.
So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
