In Touch magazine

Tori Spelling’s daughter Stella accessorized with some Magic Marker stains, while Halle Berry’s daughter Nahla toted a stuffed animal for a fab fall look. Did they match their Pull-Ups, too? Like, OMG, who do you think their stylist is?!

Bret Michaels Didn’t Eat To Prepare For His Nakey Billboard Cover

“I didn’t eat for a day and I did about 2,000 sit-ups … I said, ‘Listen, I have two requests—good lighting and a warm room. That’s all I’m asking for.’ If I’m walking out with it all f**king hanging out there for the world to see then, well, I need good lighting and a warm room.”

Don’t Read Your Magazine, Smell It

Personally, I loathe perfume ads in magazines. It’s impossible to tell what the scent actually smells like, because after languishing on the glossy page between a hundred other fragrances, the original essence is gone. But the magazine mono.kultur #23 decided that I’m wrong, and chose to create their latest issue entirely out of smells, as an homage to their feature subject, the Norwegian scientist and artist Sissel Tolaas. You see, her entire life has been devoted to the art of sniffing. No career counselor could have thought this up, but Sissel found a love for scents and went with it. So for the inventive issue, a total of 12 scents were infused onto the pages using microencapsulation, and release their aroma into the world once rubbed. Now, I’m all for innovation, and as we’re all well aware, glossies need to create new and different forms of communication to stay alive in these trying times. But reading a magazine through odors? That’s like asking for a headache. [PSFK] Keep reading »

Meet John Paul Thurlow, Magazine Cover Lover

OMFG, Finally—Lonny Launches Today!

So we warned you it was coming, but after four months (it feels like way longer than that!) of waiting, the digital mag, Lonny, headed up by Rubie Green founder Michelle Adams and photographer Patrick Cline, is finally here—sweet Jesus, thank the Lord! (Can you tell I’ve been reading and re-reading and re-re-reading my old collection of Dominos every day since its demise?) You must check it out here.

It’s complete eye candy yumminess! [Lonny] Keep reading »

Jennifer Aniston Talks About Being Single In The Next Issue Of Elle

Jennifer Aniston lets it all hang out in the September issue of Elle. The actress graces the cover of the mag in a fierce leather dress, looking as confident as ever. And she sounds that way, too. After being dubbed “the lonely girl” by pretty much every tabloid magazine and gossip show ever, Jen seems nothing but awesome as she speaks out about her single status, her childhood, and how she’d loved to have worked in microsurgery if you know, that whole acting thing hadn’t work out for her. The full interview with Jen will hit newsstands soon, but here are the best bits to tide you over. [Elle] Keep reading »

Magazine Aims To Sex Up The Bible

Be honest, when was the last time you cracked open a Bible? I read it for the first time in college and only because my professor made me. But peeps from a publishing company called Illuminated World want to make God’s diary more…enticing to the unsaved. These publishers have created Bible Illuminated: The Book. This glossy, magazine-style book (which retails for $35) has given the Bible a major facelift. With big photographs and pop culture references galore, this sexy page turner is meant to appeal to more than just religious folk. Recognizable characters have been replaced with celebs like Angelina Jolie, Bono, and Muhammed Ali and concepts like pain and suffering are illustrated by recent photos of sickness in Africa instead of Jesus on a cross. What do you think? Is turning the Bible into a glossy magazine blasphemy or brilliant? [Bible Illuminated] Keep reading »

9 Things I Learned About Women From Editing Maxim

I edited Maxim for four years, and let me tell you, we knew everything there was to know about guys. Like this: All guys really care about is girls. Our sex and relationship pieces tried to break down the great female mystery, and they were consistently the highest-rated articles in the magazine aside from, well, the pictorials. And we learned a lot ourselves. Here are nine interesting nuggets of wisdom I gleaned from my job presenting women to men. Keep reading »

Playboy Hits Wall Street Harder Than The Recession

Playboy is looking for the lovely ladies of Wall Street! The mag has already hit up the hotties at the Olive Garden and Home Depot, but now they want women who aren’t even making minimum wage thanks to the economic crisis. While the market is down, Playboy thinks they can get financial analysts to take it all off! So, if you went to business school, now is you chance to really cash in, sorta. Photo editor Gary Cole claims the payola will be based on the number of applicants, but he doesn’t suspect he’ll have to offer more than 2G’s because, “The reason they [the models] do this is because they want the attention, the opportunity, the experience of doing it. It’s not really for the money.” Ha, we think they underestimate the shrewd negotiators they’re dealing with here. [Reuters UK]
