Mimi Talks Covers...

Vibe always seems to have problems when it comes to their magazine covers. Mary J. Blige wasn't happy with her cover, Bow Wow was disappointed with his magazine spread, yada yada yada. I'm sure by now you've all seen the typo on the cover of the latest issue of "Vibe" magazine (they misspelled 'villains'). Well in an interview with AllHipHop, "Vibe" editor Mimi Valdes discusses that cover as well as Mariah Carey's cover absence, the worst selling cover last year (Kanye West) and the misconceptions about magazine covers. You can read a lil snippet of the interview below. Click the link to read the full interview...
AllHipHop.com: Ok, on the current issue, which features Lil' Wayne, there is a typo. I personally want to know, what are the ramifications behind something like that? I know AllHipHop.com has typos and they always bother me.

Mimi Valdes: Yes, there is a spelling mistake on the Lil' Wayne cover, one of those unfortunate things that got caught too late. Definitely heartbreaking.

AllHipHop.com: Are heads gonna roll?

Mimi Valdes: Out of respect for my staff, I don’t want to discuss personnel matters, but it is clearly somethin...some things are certainly unacceptable. It's something that's never going to happen again.

Mimi stinks as an editor. Why does she still have the job anyway? She had nothing constructive to say in that interview.

Lil Wayne is not ugly, i seen him in person he is a cute dude. The dreads just make him look kind of grimy though.

Yeah, and females strictly need to stay barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen. Sounds stupid just like your dumb ass comment.
