Cover Battle: New York Times Magazine or V

unnamed

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features The New York Times Magazine taking on V.

For its Innovations issue, the Times Mag went with a crumpled piece of paper with “In praise of Failure” written on it. It appears failing is a good tactic. High school would’ve been a lot easier if our teachers had known that.

V magazine, meanwhile, features Nicki Minaj in a valiant attempt to make the beret cool. Please, no one tell Carmelo Anthony.

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