I must admit that I don’t like this magazine at all (I only buy the January issues in order to post the lists). In this #87 there’s a repugnant illustrated report with photographs of two models dressed as Pete Doherty and Kate Moss with nonsense titles like “Pete’s going to a clinic: This time’s for real, he promises to Kate” and with captions like “the model of Pete is wearing a shirt by Converse, shoes by Diesel, etc., etc.”. Absolutely ridiculous… And offensive. They glorify and trivialize the “dangerous” way of life, turning a boy with problems into a teen hero and then making it a bigger problem. And the most absurd is that they are copying the worst of the English musical press.
