the covers of entertainment weekly in 1993 were just weird

I was trying to come up with the perfect word to describe this collection of magazine covers, but I just don't know that I can. As much as I always read about the 90s and remember them and love them, these all seem to come from a different planet now.

Marky Mark Wahlberg, shirtless, carefree, and rapping. As much as I know it happened, I still can't imagine it anymore.

CAN YOU BELIEVE MICHAEL JACKSON?! Well, yeah... but do we get it?! Still no.

So what you're saying is... it's just a cult hit, it'll never go anywhere, and it's got nothing to offer to pop culture? Oh.

Here's the thing... I feel like nowadays, people go from good-bad, not bad-good. All those Disney girls? They wanna be as much anti-Disney as possible now. Were good girls actually sexy back then?!

Sex and family shows sharing the spotlight... well, maybe that's not so weird nowadays.

OMGOMGOMG CONEHEADS! IT'S GOING TO BE SO GOOD! [Side note: At least all these movies were original! Aren't we just getting remakes and sequels in the summer these days?]

You rock that all denim and plaid, Tom! ...Wait.... he's a leading man NOW?! [Makes me wonder who will end up becoming a legend like him in another 20 years. Any bets?]

WHY IS EVERYTHING ABOUT REINVENTION?! Did everyone hate themselves? Was there a depression or something I'm unaware of?! 

Quite simple why this one's weird: Radio people never make the headlines of this level for something they did themselves these days. Everyone's too afraid of getting fired or getting fined. It's sad, huh? Trust me, I know.

Considering I don't know who he is, I guess it never really worked out for him. I'm sure he appreciates the effort though, EW. 

BTW These are the past 6 covers.... I don't think I need to prove the lack of originality anymore.... but props to Dexter.
