While I agree that Irina Shayk’s 2011 S.I. cover was a little hotter than Kate Upton’s, but I can’t bring myself to hate on Kate’s obvious hotness or question whether she deserves the cover at such a young age. All I gotta say is more power to Kate for the major career-changing homerun and w/ regards to S.I. editors running w/ Kate, that’s very simple: Magazine sales! Kate & her bangin’ body are undoubtedly very bankable, especially judging by all the online buzz she generates. Needless to say, it was a very calculated gamble on behalf of Sports Illustrated to run w/ Kate as the cover girl! I give them major props & feel like the layout, albeit blatantly airbrushed (what isn’t airbrushed these days?), looks downright hot! OWWW!!
While we’re on the topic of career-changing homeruns, did you guys see this Kate Upton/MLB2K ad? Girl’s already raking it in!
