When all else fails, put groupies on the cover of your magazine and call them role models.

It’s clear that reality television stars aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. So eventually they become magazine cover worthy for most publications still trying to stay heavy in the business. Vibe magazine knows these interesting young women aren’t necessarily your role models, but they make you angry enough to sell just enough magazines to keep them relevant in a time when magazines are being killed off by blogs.
It’s a scary time for the magazine publishing business, but do you think we’ve gotten to the point where these reality stars are role models to somebody else, may be a lot younger than you?
Does it make you angry that Evelyn Lozada can throw a bottle of wine at a person and get her on television show out of the deal and magazine cover just to spite you?
In a time where classy and educated women are outnumbered by video vixens and professional athlete chasing groupies, where do we go from here?
