Mindy Kaling Elle Cover Stirs Controversy, Comedian Responds

Mindy-Kaling-Elle-Cover-Controversy

After Elle magazine released four covers of their “The Women in TV Issue” issues, on Monday, critics were quick to point out the difference between Mindy Kaling,, an Indian-American actress of ‘The Mindy Project’, and that of three other women actresses, including Amy Poehler, Zooey Deschanel and Allison Williams.

While Mindy’s cover was presented as a black-and-white close up, the other three ladies (all white actresses by the way), were all featured on the cover in full-length spreads and in color. Critics speculated Mindy’s cover was purposely done in the way it had been because of her fuller figure — hiding her curvy frame.

The controversy sparked so much debate, it was the topic of discussion for much of the day.

Now, Kaling is finally addressing the controversy and sharing her own thoughts on the matter.

On her duet with Rihanna…
“[W]orking with her was utopia. She’s the sexiest woman on the planet. And at the end of the day, we’re both just basically Caribbean girls. The chemistry was so good and so real. She taught me dance moves. She was a sweet teacher.”

The bad gal herself also shared an excerpt of the full interview with fans, on Instagram, of what Shakira had to say. She added, “Shakira Shakira #iheartShak.”

Does this look like actress Kerry Washington to you? That’s the question many is asking after getting a glance of the November 2013 Lucky magazine cover.

A photo shop job gone wrong, to say the least.

Although the ‘Scandal’ actress herself unveiled the magazine cover to fans on Twitter, she did not share her own thoughts of the magazine spread. But her fans had lots to say? Thousands of messages were fueled with confusion and disappointment.

Washington graces the cover, visibly, a shade or two darker than her natural complexion, a layered and wispy bob, and altered features. Even her famous pout and smile seemed to have undergone some sort of configuration. A major difference from Washington’s Glamour magazine cover just one month earlier.
