Vogue editor Anna Wintour makes an unflattering digital cameo in Drake’s new show

Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour seemingly makes a cameo appearance – albeit in digital form – during the show Drake and 21 Savage recently started touring around the US. And given the recent legal battle between the musicians and the fashion magazine, it’s perhaps unsurprising to know that Wintour’s digital representation is not particularly flattering.

Drake and 21 Savage were sued by publisher Condé Nast after they distributed and promoted a fake edition of Vogue – with the musicians as cover stars – as part of the marketing for their joint album ‘Her Loss’. The magazine owner accused the musicians and their marketing agency of trademark infringement, unfair competition and false advertising. The lawsuit was ultimately settled back in February.

According to TMZ, a face that seems very much designed to look like Wintour pops up on screens while Drake and 21 Savage perform ‘Jimmy Crooks’ on their current ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour. And that Wintour-esque character then “opens her mouth to reveal some pretty gnarly teeth”.

Neither Drake nor 21 Savage have commented on the somewhat petty addition to the visuals for their new show, though Drake did apparently share a photo of it on Instagram last week. Fun times.
