YBF Women Ignored By Vanity Fair's "Young Hollywood" Issue?

No men, no people of color, no different sizes, no different looks, etc. Many are saying Vanity Fair is doing nothing but pushing the stereotype that Young Hollywood should only be female, white, and thin. Odd since a few of the biggest stars this year are of color--like Zoe Saldana and Academy Award nominee Gabourey Sidibe--have been completely left out.

Jill Scott for X-Men voice

Here's a snippet from her press release:
Scott’s next film project, Lifetime’s Sins Of The Mother which bows February 7th, revolves around a grad student who returns home to face her abusive, alcoholic mother –played by Scott—only to discover that her mom is sober and has a 3-year- old daughter and new life. Directed by Paul Kaufman and Executive produced by Damon Lee, the telepic is based on the novel Orange, Mint & Honey and adapted for television by Elizabeth Hunter. Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too? releases April 2nd and returns Scott to the widely successful movie alongside Janet Jackson, Michael Jai White & Tyler Perry. Having their annual one-week reunion, four close couples gather together for a group vacation at the Bahamas to share news about their lives and relationships. Their intimate week in paradise is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Sheila’s (Scott) ex-husband, Mike, who looks forward to breaking up her marriage with Troy. While Sheila deals with her problem, the others realize they too are not immune to the challenges of commitment and fidelity. Marvel Animation and BET Networks have teamed up to create the epic animated mini-series Black Panther out mid 2010. Scott voices X-men Heroine Storm alongside Golden Globe nominated actor Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), Kerry Washington (Last King of Scotland) & Golden Globe winning actress Alfre Woodard (American Violet).
