Look, I was willing to give you the benefit of the doubt with the NME cover. Your heart was probably in the right place. But this? Perez Hilton? This has to be a gag, a sloppy Photoshop job on a slow news day from those jokers at Urb, slapping the logo on something they filched from Last Night’s Party and then passing it off as a “contest” to choose the cover for the magazine’s next issue. Right? Just look at the washed-out digi-cam quality of the photographs and the crude cut-and-paste job (especially noticeable around your noggin’). Totally a joke. Right? Please? The other photo is after the jump, along with some choice quotes from the contest’s comments section:

Perez and Beth are great. You are all just jealous because you aren’t on a magazine cover.

Incredible that one of those things will make a cover! don´t forget to put your magazine backward in the stands. What a awful pair of fatsos!
Now Lindsay, that’s not very nice.
Like I said, it’s probably Urb‘s editorial department having a little LOL OMG WTF at our expense. In which case, kudos. Caught me with my righteous indignation around my ankles. But Beth, what are you doing hanging with this smug, leathery, frosted goiter of a human being in the first place? I’m worried about you, but more than that, I’m worried about the type of people you are choosing to associate yourself with now that you’re a minor indie rock celebrity. I mean, this isn’t the healthy, brassy Beth Ditto I used to see buying bagels at the hippie coffee shop in downtown Olympia:
Dr. Harvell proscribes a good week’s worth of sleep and plenty of orange juice. Oh, and also to stop hanging around with bloated ticks like Perez Hilton.
And now back to my hobbit hole until next Wednesday.
Help choose URB’s next cover! [Urb Blogs]
