A couple of days back, Playboy magazine released its first-ever digital cover, but the real shocker was the person who appeared on the main page front-and-center. It was none other than Puerto Rican trap-star extraordinaire, Bad Bunny. This information is vital because the musician is the first male, aside from the publication’s late founder, Hugh Hefner, to appear solo on the cover.
The article carries the headline “Bad Bunny Is Not Playing God,” Flipping through the magazine pages, fans will learn his status as a queer ally in reggaeton, more about his album YHLQMDLG amongst other things like his personal and career life. He even gets a little personal by unveiling his opinion on love-making: “I think that sex is a giant world, and everyone is free to see it as they want and do it with whoever they want.” Bad Bunny said, “However, they want, with infinite possibilities. In the end, we are human beings. Everybody feels everybody falls in love with whoever they’re meant to.”
The digital version of the popular eye-gazing magazine decided to ditch their hard copies back in March. Playboy announced it would stray away from print copies for the rest of the year, citing “disruption” in production and supply chains caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
