Just when we thought Kylie Jenner’s Instagram literally couldn’t get more insane, she proves us all wrong. On Tuesday morning, while I was minding my own business at work, she posted a naked photo of her and Travis Scott that literally made my jaw drop. Apparently they’re doing Playboy, and I need every single detail right now.
In the photo, Kylie appears to be fully nude, hugging a Travis who’s just wearing jeans. They’re up against some kind of leafy backdrop, and honestly they look so f*cking good. I’m not going to try to guess what kind of retouching and/or Photoshopping went into this, but I’m not mad at the end result.
According to Playboy, Kylie and Travis will be featured on the cover of their upcoming “Pleasure” issue, in a photoshoot that was creative directed by Travis Scott himself. It’s unclear exactly when the full issue will be released, but Playboy also teased the couple’s cover appearance on their Instagram with a grid of three sensual close-up shots. I don’t know what’s come over me, but I’m like, extremely into these photos so far.
Remember in Avengers: Endgame, when Captain America said “that’s America’s ass”? Well call me crazy, but those are America’s lips. I don’t care how many fillers are in there, they look amazing.
As you might recall, Kylie isn’t the first member of the Kardashian-Jenner family to grace the cover of Playboy. Way back in 2007, Kim Kardashian covered the magazine, and it was huge point of contention on an early episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Caitlyn Jenner was judgmental of Kim choosing to go nude again after the sex tape scandal, while Kris Jenner was (not surprisingly) more supportive. In fact, that’s when the iconic “You’re doing amazing sweetie” line was born. I miss 2007.
At that time, Kylie was barely even a tween, but now she’s all grown up and with her own Playboy cover to match. Famously, Playboy has struggled in recent years, along with much of the magazine industry. In 2017, they cut back from publishing each month to bimonthly, and last year they moved to a quarterly schedule. They also announced in 2016 that they would no longer feature nudity in the magazine, but then reversed that decision just a year later. Just let people be naked if they want!!
Basically, it’s been a weird last few years for Playboy, but maybe Kylie and Travis will be the boost they need. Despite the cutbacks, it’s still a big deal for someone as famous as Kylie Jenner to do the cover, and I’m excited to see the whole thing.

We felt like this day might never come, but no one lives forever. Yesterday, Hugh Hefner died at the age of 91, after a lifetime of wearing smoking jackets and partying with hot blondes. The news of his death sent shockwaves across social media, with people in seeming disbelief that someone who was literally born in the 1920s could…die?
But it happened. Hef, who helped out so many careers, from Marilyn Monroe to Carmen Electra to the Girls Next Door to Paris Hilton, is gone. He leaves behind four children (who probably have a lot of issues), and his wife, Crystal, who just turned 31 this spring and will no doubt marry at least four more men in her lifetime.
Since founding Playboy in 1953, Hugh stuck with the magazine through many changes, including a brief period last year when they decided to stop doing nudity. Like, we’re not experts on Playboy magazine, but isn’t that kind of the point? We’re pretty sure high school boys don’t secretly buy Playboy so they can read hard-hitting interviews. Luckily, Hugh got to see the magazine bring back nudity, which tbh might have been his final wish before he died.
Hef will be buried next in LA next to Marilyn Monroe, who was featured in the first-ever issue of Playboy. Let’s hope they at least position him so he can look up her skirt; he would want it that way.
