perhaps their taking a leson from Impact, who tried to relaunch their magazine
with a "fashion feature"... The first edition had Roberta from Wild Strawberries
in doing a spy-thing... really weird... It seemed to have little to do with either

it's like a tell-all rag for prepubescent lolapalooza kids...
