Usher Covers VIBE’s Oct/Nov Issue

VIBE’s October/November issue (on newsstands October 12th) features R&B triple threat Usher on the cover and in a candid interview as well as a Q&A with Orlando Magic superstar Dwight Howard, an exclusive Soulja Boy feature and an expose on being a cross dresser at a prestigious black college.

Usher comes clean in “A Man on Fire,” speaking candidly about his definition of the difference between fidelity and monogamy, his public persona as a cheater, his drama-filled divorce and life as a single dad rebounding from a midlife career crisis.

“VIBE is excited to feature Usher once again on the cover,” said VIBE Lifestyle Network Co-CEO and Chief Creative Officer Brett Wright. “Usher continues to grow as an artist and as a man. Having known him since he was 14, I am proud of all his accomplishments.”

The new issue of Vibe also features the first digital cover of Soulja Boy, available only via a QR code on the cover of the issue. The code directs you to a Soulja Boy landing page that unlocks exclusive content from Vibe and his label.

“VIBE as a brand will continue to push the digital needle in our space,” said Jermaine Hall, VIBE’s Editor-in-Chief. “Social media maven Soulja Boy was a fitting artist to roll out a digital cover.”

The issue also features “Nice Guys Don’t Finish Last,” a Q&A with Orlando Magic’s self proclaimed nice guy Dwight Howard and “Mean Girls of Morehouse,” a feature about the discriminatory dress code targeting collegiate cross dressers.
