PHOTO “Taylor Lautner Out & Proud” People magazine cover is fake

Taylor Lautner Out and Proud People magazine cover January 2012

Nature abhors a vacuum and the internet abhors a slow news day. Thus we have a photo making the rounds online of a People magazine cover featuring Twilight hottie Taylor Lautner officially announcing that he is, in fact, gay. The full headline reads, “EXCLUSIVE: TAYLOR LAUTNER OUT & PROUD Tired of rumors, the Twilight star opens up about his decision to finally come out. ‘I’m more liberated, and happier than I’ve ever been.'”

But all you Team Jacob gals can relax, the cover is “absolutely fake” according to a rep for People.

Having created my own fair share of spoof tabloid covers it’s always entertaining to me to look at what other stories were created to go along with the attention-grabbing main cover story. This particular issue gets a FAIL due to lack of creativity because all they could come up with (for this “double issue” mind you!) was photos of Brad and Angelina in Africa and Carnie Wilson revealing she has issues with food and alcohol. Meh.

Here’s a more entertaining version of a “Twilight star is gay” People magazine cover as an example… *DISCLAIMER! THIS PEOPLE COVER IS ALSO FAKE!*

People magazine cover story announcing Kristen Stewart is gay and in love with Dakota Fanning

Can you say “Vampire Leztat?” (Are Anne Rice/Twilight crossover jokes allowed?)

By the way, I LOOOVE Kristen Stewart’s safety pin dress from the MTV Awards! CLICK HERE for the photos and see if you don’t agree.

  • That is not even funny , this is a classic example of how far a tabloid will go to make money. I always enjoyed ready people magazine because they only reported true stories… I’m discussted.

      People Magazine didn’t create the fake cover, someone else did. People Magazine still has a very good reputation!

      Um…yah…Apparently not only can you not spell….but reading is a challenge for you as well. I mean…the HEADLINE says the cover is fake….yet all you look at are the pictures. Almost as funny as “Ted Haggard: I’m still not gay.”

      Mandy, you are clearly not a very bright person and I suspect you need special care. This article uses simple words and refers to the fabricated nature of the cover enough times so that even a simpleton could grasp the concept. Keep looking at pictures Mandy and enjoy things that are shiny and bright.

    This is hilarious! I’ll admit before I read the article I thought maybe it was real!
