Two Of These Entertainers Sold The Most Magazines In 2010 And One Sold The Least

The world is so fixated on what Lady Gaga will do and wear next that she was the newsstand hit in 2010. She can sell a magazine as well as she sells out her concerts. According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations, Gaga graced the covers of the best-selling Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, and Elle issues in 2010. Rihanna also did well on the newsstands. Her GQ cover was the second-best seller for the men’s mag. But she also had appeal with young women, as her Seventeen cover also sold like hotcakes. Surprisingly, Taylor Swift was an under-performer at the newsstands. Her April Elle cover was the worst-selling issue of the year. Likewise, Taylor’s November Glamour cover was the mag’s second-worst seller, and her July Marie Claire was the third-worst selling issue for the monthly. So what does this say about our culture now? We’re more interested in celebs with a sexy edge as opposed to a wholesome image. [WWD] Keep reading »

Because That’s What Ladies Be Talking About

The Onion magazine satire of “10 Most Powerful Women” articles might be a joke, but frankly this cover speaks for many profiles about Hillary Clinton or Condoleezza Rice. The article in Vogue about Hillary’s makeup regimen comes to mind. Ugh, I’d forgotten about that. [The Onion via Feministing] Keep reading »

Tavi And Jane Pratt To Start “Sassy”-Esque Teen Mag (And You Can Be A Part Of It!)

The media lords hath heard our prayers! If you aren’t already freaking out, you will when you hear this: Fashion blogging sensation Tavi and Jane Pratt (founder and editor of Sassy and Jane mags) are teaming up to create a new teen magazine. Tavi made the announcement on her blog, saying, “You guys may know how I feel about Sassy. You also may know that I’ve been babbling about how I think our generation should get one, too. Jane Pratt, founding editor and then EIC of Sassy, also became aware, and emailed me, and we’ve met a couple times, and it looks like we’re going to start a magazine for an audience of wallflowerly teenage girls.”

People like us have been clamoring for ages for a Sassy revival, and we could see the potential for that to happen with Tavi, but as she wisely points out, “[this magazine] won’t be Sassy (or the rebirth of Sassy, or Sassy 2.0) and nor do we want it to be.” Rather, the publication will “use Sassy as a point of reference for the whole teen-magazine-that-doesn’t-suck thing …” We love how Tavi wants to create something new but still retain the nostalgia for an era that feels creative to us now … Keep reading »

Feminists Say Lad Mags Should Be On The Top Shelf Next To Porn

Wondering what happened to your Maxim magazine? An activist group in the U.K. — that calls itself Object — storms into stores and magazine stands throughout London once a month on “Feminist Fridays,” stuffing lad mags into paper bags scribbled with phrases like “This magazine dehumanizes women! Don’t buy it! and “Love women, hate sexism!” Object say lad mags like Maxim (former employer of our dear Amelia, as well as John DeVore) and the U.K.’s Zoo are just watered-down versions of porn magazines like Hustler and even if they aren’t as, um, gynecologically educational as pornographic magazines, they’re just as raunchy and disrespectful in their depictions of women.

Jane Lynch Surrounded By Beefcakes

OK, so these images of Jane Lynch aren’t going to incite the same uproar as the Terry Richardson images of Gleeks Lea Michele and Dianna Agron in the November GQ. But still, we like that they took Sue Sylvester out of the track suit and gave her a glam moment. Oh, and surrounded her with scantily clad dudes. [People]

Another image after the jump. Keep reading »

Come To Glamour Magazine’s “Love Your Life” Conference, Pretty Please?

Wouldn’t you just about die to be in the same room as Brooke Shields, Padma Lakshmi, and Crystal Renn all in the same day? Then take a day off of work and make it to New York City for Glamour magazine’s 20th annual “Love Your Life” conference on Monday, November 1.

Playgirl Wants The Men Of “Glee”

glee's mark and chord

It’s time to play another round of “How much would Playgirl pay famous dudes to take their clothes off?” Last time we talked, Vinny of “Jersey Shore” got an offer for $30K, which doesn’t stack up to the $100K that Levi Johnston supposedly netted from the mag. Now, Playgirl is after the men of “Glee.” But not just any “Glee” stud—they want Chord Overstreet (Sam) or Mark Salling (Puck). They’d pass on Cory Monteith (Finn) or Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schuester). A rep for the mag said they would offer Chord and Mark $100K each for a shoot, and assured them it wouldn’t even have to be X-rated. Keep reading »
