Like the Rubik’s cube, swing-dance-revival revivals, and the swimsuit portion of the presidential debates, celebrity news can provide hours of entertainment for average Americans. Keep up with Hollywood's finest with today's Groupon: for $30, you get 52 issues of Us Weekly (a $67 value).
Since 1977, Us Weekly has reported on the most glamorous aspects of celebrity culture and Hollywood lifestyles, enticing readers with exclusive photos and insight into the lives of movie, music, and television stars. After taking a vow of silence for four to six weeks before the first issue to arrive, readers can gasp, comment, and pore over the magazine's long-standing features such as Just Like Us, which documents celebrities performing everyday tasks in their natural habitat. Catch up on the latest parties and premiers with the glossy photos in The Red Carpet section. Hot Stuff relays riveting Hollywood news, and Who Wore It Best? encourages readers to vote on which stars can most successfully don modern fashion. With cheerfully absorbing articles on Hollywood starlets and up-and-coming musicians, Us Weekly delivers the ideal gift for everyone from budding pop-culture fans to veteran celebrity trackers.
Since its inaugural issue in 1967—which featured revolutionary musician John Lennon on the cover—Rolling Stone magazine has succeeded in doing the seemingly impossible: it captured the thriving, tumultuous, and amorphous culture of American youth during a time of historical change. Thrown into the spotlight by such prolific writers as gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, the magazine’s contributors have since gained a transgenerational audience with their comprehensive coverage of music, politics, and entertainment. Today, it’s arguably one of the most iconic pop-culture publications, slinging up irreverent album reviews and articles that teem with the sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll that made it notorious. Perhaps even more famous than the stories themselves is the who’s who of celebrated artists and infamous particle physicists that grace its covers.
