We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks. Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.
The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks. The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton. The third is that counterfeiting is illegal.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to correct the confusion.

Mmm-hmm, Jesus be the whiteboys that STAY lawyered up.
But seriously? What kinda shitshow are they running over there? Never in my nine years of journalism have I heard of someone wearing bootleg name brands on a freaking COVER. I mean sure, you can try and sneak it in a video but on a magazine cover? One that's gonna sit on a newsstand for 5 weeks? And worse, people can take with them into the store? (Cause you know that's how they got caught, right? Pookie and all his boys bumrushed their local LV store with cover in hand talkin' bout, "We want dis right 'ere."
And as further proof XXL's situation is 1-800-over, the mag's website won't allow folks to leave comments about or ping the post. DAYUM.
Unless... and you know this is just my conspiracy mind at work here but bear with me... What if the editors put him on the cover with the Canal Street special on purpose??? Uh-huh, yeah. You know, as a subliminal way of calling him a fraud?? Almost to say, if this fat fool really knew anything about the LV lines, he'd have known that he wasn't rocking the real stuff??
No? Not so much? What you say? I'm over thinking it? Oh well, can't say I ain't try to help our folks out... NEXT.

With that said, I'm now on the hunt for shoes. Which in theory should be simple because the dress is black... yeah, not so much.
For whatever reason, I can' seem to find a pair of black strappy, sparkly sandals with a four inch heel that 1) match the black in the dress (cause don't you hate blatantly mismatched blacks) and 2) fit my feet comfortably.
And no, I can't just "go get a pair from 9 West or Aldo," dammit. Why? Because 9 West/ Aldo+Mitzi's wide ass feet= severe pain. And after all the money I'm spending on this mess, I have no intention of spending half the night in my seat or worse being the girl that has to do the hot foot dance all the way home after the reception. (And you know exactly what I mean by hot foot- foot all twisted out, limping like someone smashed your toes with a sledgehammer and then pushed you unto a bed of hot coals.) No thank you.
So if you see any cute black sandals please let a sister know ASAP. I've only got 19 days to pull it together...
