Jessica Simpson covers the April 2012 issue of Elle Magazine. More specifically, she has two covers; one clothed, one n00d, the former of which one would assume would make the logical newsstand version while the other would make a better subscriber issue since she’s covered but completely unclothed in the passe, gratuitous pose aping a 21-year-old Vanity Fair cover with Demi Moore.
However, a tipster tells Jezebel.com, Simpson’s preggo curves are too much for some grocery store shelves with the more explicit cover displayed in public. One store had a handmade (as opposed to corporate-issue) modesty shield at a grocery store in Tucson, Arizona comparable to the “Family Shield” used to protect homophobes from Elton John’s cover with husband David Furnish.
An alert tipster spotted this homemade device at a grocery store in Tucson, Arizona. It’s blocking what was apparently determined to be a scandalous Elle cover featuring the very pregnant body of Jessica Simpson. The tipster reports that it’s been there for a week; so it is certainly intentional, as the charming scrawl indicates. – via Jezebel.
