What would it look like if Alex Morgan was transformed into Katy Perry on the cover of her One of the Boys album? ESPN the Magazine’s February 8th edition is the music issue. Athletes were asked to help recreate album covers from their favorite acts. That meant getting Morgan into a red top and giant hat.
Photographers and set designers went the extra mile to make sure the photos were as exact as humanly possible. Other athletes in the issue: Jimmie Johnson as Bob Dylan; Josh Freeman as Michael Jackson; Ryan Lochte as the naked Nevermind baby; James Stewart as Rick James.
Will this lead to magazine sales? Probably not. The SI Swimsuit issue hits newsstands on February 12.
