4 Reasons Why Vibe Disappeared (NSFW)


As a former reader, I realised that Vibe was starting to jarr me when…

1. They continued their decline into sleaze and unsexy sex with this:

Note to Christina: why oh WHY is your man covering your titties on the cover of a national magazine? I used to have so much respect for Christina Milian but what has happened? What’s going on here? And why does the Dream have his hand down her pussycatdoll??? What the fuck? Charcoal stan points for anyone who has a good explanation. Vibe went out with a whimper with this final issue.

2. More nonsense covers like this popped up in Vibe’s past as well:

Note the coverline on the cover that says ‘the 51 best MySpace rappers’. Note to Danyel, MySpace rappers — cover them on the website first, before putting them on the magazine. Nothing against Keyshia but I don’t want to see her covering up her tatas/tits/boobs/etc on the cover of a music magazine. A little sex here and there is great, but when dick, boobs and pussy are in full display, it makes the whole magazine look like a one minute man.

3. Vibe as a magazine didn’t know who it was. Was it a magazine for black music fans or a magazine that simply that was under the so-called urban umbrella?

4. No original features. And SHOCKING cover lines. Does anyone remember the Rihanna issue I posted a while ago? Here’s a reminder below:

It’s sad to see people losing their jobs, but I have to say, I would be devastated if Black Enterprise, ESSENCE and especially if Ebony folded because they have more of a legacy to me because at least their messages were consist.

  1. Goodbye and Good Riddance- My thoughts exactly.

    I thought I would buy the last issue for old times’ sake and maybe keep it for the babies…TILL I saw that mess.

    😦

  2. If that’s the case, hopefully Quincy will turn it around 180 degrees. That magazine the way it is now – wretched. 😐
