People Celebrity Magzine
This is a random rant. I’m a subscriber to People magazine (reevaluating that now). I get this socially irrelevant “magazine” every Friday, and now I am wondering why the hell do I get this magazine.
For starters, why is this magazine called People when 99.9% of the contents are about celebrities? The contents pretty much display journalists and photographers who are snooping into celebrity’s lives that I don’t really give a damn about.
They may feature one to three pages featuring “everyday” people.
I’m sure in the beginning the focus was ordinary people (I hope)? Why not just revamp the name and call it what it is. PEOPLE WHO WANT TO LIVE THE LIFE OF CELEBERTIES (okay maybe too long) or maybe CELEBERTIY STALKER
They’re not concern about people like you and me (after all we have nothing to talk about or that is buzz worthy). When was the last time you saw an everyday person on the cover? I would actually be impressed with a magazine that didn’t need a familiar face on the cover to sale an issue (as it pertains to pop culture). Or perhaps, we’re not considered PEOPLE?
But as long as we (including me) continue to patronize these dumb ass publications, why would they change?
