"In entertainment people either represent youth, power, or sexuality. Then there's me, carrying normalcy.” – Tina Fey in the new Vogue.

Word.

Anna Wintour finally picked a winner, following the selection of Jessica Biel last month. It’s one of the best example of women in showbiz. Not Valentine’s Day. Not tits. Not ass. Not famewhoring. Smart, sassy, accomplished, and CAPABLE.

But where the f-ck is her scar? The scar is sexy. It’s sexy because of what it represents. She was the first female head writer on Saturday Night Live. She created her own show. She produces it. She stars in it. She represents it. She manages her family. She stays who she is. THAT is Tina Fey. And this is the issue that should sell a record number of copies. With a scar on it.

There’s a quote in the article from a source who declared: "Her existence is such a relief."

And it’s true. Here’s how Tina explains it:

"I am a post-baby boomer who has been handed a sort of Spice Girls' version of feminism. We're supposed to be wearing half-shirts and jumping around. And, you know, maybe that's not panning out."

What’s encouraging re: the photos is that while there are the requisite glamour shots, she does also pose in a bodysuit with more hips that we normally see on Vogue AND mouse ears. Adorable. As is the video.

When they grow up, they should want to be Tina Fey.
