This might be the best cover of Glamour’s newest iteration? It still does NOT look like Glamour to me, but it DOES look less like a weird pricey zine they stick out on coffee tables in the lobby of the Ace Hotel and more like a proper glossy magazine I might read on the plane. Some of that is up to Tiffany, who looks so bright and engaged in this shot, and some of it is because they wisely took themselves outside and have stopped snapping people in front of a lifeless (but presumably cheap!) white backdrop.
The interview is pretty good, too; it’s quite wide-ranging, covering everything from what kind of sex ed teacher Tiffany would be (excellent, she says), and the infamous Who Bit Beyonce question, to more serious issues, such as her rape and the way it’s impacted her, and her personal career ambitions:
Recently Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been her inspiration. “I’ve been studying him a lot on YouTube and stuff. I’m like, If he can make $65 million, I can make $65 million too,” she says. “I want to get on that Forbes magazine, not for the money, but to be an example to other foster youths that it don’t matter how low from the bottom you are, you can always rise to the top if you believe in yourself.”
It’s, frankly, always just a pleasure for me to spend time with Tiffany. I also really enjoyed her book, The Last Black Unicorn — I read it, because I don’t really listen to audiobooks, but I suspect that it would be great to listen to her read it, which I think is generally the case for books by comedians (like Tina Fey’s book). Just a quick reading recommendation while we’re here!
