The Crystal Ball Of Pop!

What happens when the celebrity darlings are not the interviewee but instead are the interviewer? This is the case with abc Interview xyz magazine. Hot names like Reese Witherspoon and Orlando Bloom turn the tables and become the journalist. Whether it is behind the camera lens or with a magazine writers quick eye and ear for what is happening, actors know exactly what questions to ask and how to get the most out of their subject.

Although not as glossy as Vogue or Harpers, abc Interview xyz is worthy of creating more of a stir in the entertainment and lifestyle circles. Curious fashion spreads with actors as the main subject and inventive uses of camera angles are the norm here. Consider a large black housecat enlarged and superimposed alongside a pip-squeak fashion model peeking out from an itty bitty mouse hole in a fashion piece titled “Squeak if You Love Fashion”, abc Interview xyz keeps up with the MTV generation by never having a dull moment. Wide pages and straightforward writing make it accessible to young adults and those needing a quick magazine buzz.

The brainchild of Andy Warhol, this magazine remains cooler than the other side of the pillow. abc Interview xyz strikes a cord with the millennial generation. A sweet and edgy flavored magazine without the fuss or muss of ultra-glam fashion spreads, abc Interview xyz will satisfy the Hollywood artist in us all without the velvet rope or VIP pass.
