At the intersection of my interests ...

Fan art or false advertising?  Photoshopped Marie Claire cover calls itself fan art.  (It's not legally false advertising, since the cover isn't conventional advertising and because there actually is relevant content.  I can see a Cher-type right of publicity claim in the US, but the disclosures are probably enough there too.  I also wouldn't call it fan art, in the sense of noncommercially produced artwork, though obviously we're in the middle of a definitional struggle.)
