Osaka Lands On SI Swimsuit Issue Cover

While tennis champion Naomi Osaka is resting and receiving medical help to cope with her mental health and depression suffering, she has been quite busy making moves for her career.

Her latest Public Relations exploit was becoming the latest Sports Illustrated magazine cover model for the famous “Swimsuit” cover.

Such high profile honors are rarely given out randomly or by chance, they are negotiated behind the scenes by PR teams and business managers and handlers. Osaka will gain tremendous exposure and brand value via this media campaign which will help her transcend to new audiences, increasing her fame, popularity and profits.

Hopefully Osaka is getting through her mental health and depression problems and this added exposure will not have any negative side effects on her mental state and her tennis performance.

“I’m so proud to be the first Japanese and Haitian woman to grace one of the covers. I feel like that multi-cultural background is present in all of the things that I do. I try to incorporate it in everything, so hopefully, you see that,” Osaka told SI Swimsuit. “My memories [of the magazine] kind of involves the people that I grew up admiring, so I remember Tyra Banks’s issue, I remember Beyonce’s. Just growing up and watching so many incredible women grace this cover, for me, it feels like a dream.”

    Are Osaka’s handlers pimping her, using sex appeal to sell her political agendas?

    Meghan Kelly suggested on twitter Osaka is faking anxiety card to avoid media pointing out Osake being on the cover of Vogue and SI. Kelly also said Mavratilova asserting Martina also believed Osaka was using the anxiety card for self protection then changed her stance when the woke mob pressured Martina.

    Osaka says she shot the covers last year. Kelly points out that was before she announced publicly her supposed media anxieties. Osaka then blocked Kelly on twitter.

    Not a fan of Megyn Kelly in general, but she did an excellent interview with Tara Reade.

    I think Kelly is basically right. Yes, it’s possible that Osaka has some mental-health issues, but so do a lot of other players! It seems that she’s basically just using her “issues” for self-protection and sympathy. In other words, she’s a classic drama queen. 👸 And Navratilova is a classic wimp.

    Oh, well—at least she’s losing a lot of fans! 🤣

    Sam, Kelly knows she has to follow the leftist agendas or she’s out of a job. She has to attack conservative traditions and conservative figures. If she does not bark and bite like her media masters wish, she’s done. Now Hannity is ordering the public to get the vaccine. That is what his masters want. Kelly may gain back some respect and cred by exposing Osaka but one isolated incident can’t be trusted.

    Scoop, it’s funny that the mainstream media call both Megyn Kelly and Meagan McCain “conservatives.” In fact, at the supermarket, one tabloid referred to the latter as “far-right.” 🤣

    These days, it’s not really possible to work for a large media corporation and still be a “conservative.” So we all know that Hannity is a fraud. At least Kelly has stated that the reaction to the events on January 6 was overblown. So, every now and then, she comes up with something sensible. 😉 But as you said, isolated incidents don’t really count for much. 😛

    The same media can scream Hitler if you merely want a border wall to keep out illegals. Dealing with looney tunes Sam you Am.
