There's an interview with Ita in todays' Daily Telegraph.
Hop over and have a quick look. It won't take long.
Ita says that womens' magazines are boring. I agree.
I don't buy any 'womens' magazines' any more. I sometimes pick up a copy of one of the cooking mags, if there's a dish on the cover that grabs my attention.
But the likes of No Idea and the rest have no appeal at all for me, being full of gossip and light-weight fluff. Cleo and Cosmo are too aggressively sexual, and aimed at a demographic I have no desire to be part of.
And craft magazines -- no, thanks.
I want to read about real issues. Real women. And MEN, dammit! Not some 20 year old singer who looks like a girl. (and sings like one)
Why aren't there magazines for women like me, who are interested in something beyond that latest hyped up non-story about Kates' baby, how to give great oral sex, or knit a cardigan, or some fakery palm-reading fortune teller garbage?
What do you think? Do you buy magazines? do you enjoy them? would you like to see something different?
(my husband is politely requested NOT to buy the magazines with articles about how to give great oral sex. Thankyou)
