Five Badass Women to Replace Miley on the Vogue Cover
5. Demi Lovato
If Vogue is hell-bent on profiling a former tween actress, then why not put Lovato on the cover instead? She's been plagued by negative press in the past, but she's somehow managed to emerge from it with more street cred and respect than when she went in. Oh, and that's respect from folks who aren't still part of the under-21 crowd -- you know, the folks who might actually pick up a Vogue here and there.
Not only that, but Lovato is actually doing a damn fine job of handling the press around her upcoming role on Glee, where she plays the lesbian love interest of co-star Naya Rivera. It's actually quite brave for her to take on that role, given that we are stuck in caveman times when it comes to depicting gay relationships on prime-time television, so I'm not going to make too many jokes about it cause it's cool. At least she's not making out with a floating doll head while advocating foam-finger abuse. Won't somebody think of the foam fingers?
4. Angel Haze
Hell yeah to the idea of putting Angel Haze on the cover. She's a rad chick rapper to start with, and even moreso for rallying against this ridiculous Washington Post article, where the writer linked Miley's VMA antics with the Steubenville rape case. Angel Haze is just as outspoken as Miley, and didn't mince words when speaking out about that garbage. Here's how Ms. Haze put it via Twitter:
Recently been asked about @MileyCyrus way too much. Was particularly perturbed by the whole washington post thing. Let me just vocalize how utterly fucking stupid I think it is for a national news publication to post that her dancing is why things like Steubenville happen.
That is terrible journalism. Slut shaming and complete and total idiocy all at once. If @MileyCyrus wants to dance, let her. A female dancing doesn't mean she's 'asking to be raped.' Quite frankly, if she is not doing it on you, it is not for you. Women are allowed to not feel enslaved by any opinion that suggests that the display of any sort of sexuality is wrong. Die, you are what's wrong with the world, it's 2013.
You should know by now that the word 'no' does not have various meanings and is not to be taken as anything but no. I just don't get it.
She kinda deserves the Vogue cover just for putting those fools in their places.
3. Lana Del Rey
I mean, if we're going solely off of the idea that we should replace Miley with a pop-starlet doppleganger, then we need one that has Miley's "unique" sense of fashion (and by unique I mean terrible) and her "meh" kind of voice. This pop starlet should also be quite adept at taking over the radio with her earworm songs, and for those reasons I'd like to nominate Lana Del Rey. She's quite interchangeable for Miley, and if she starts prancing around with a foam finger and those terrible hipster grandma shorts, well, gross.
