MAD Magazine is delightful on the iPad


MAD Magazine is now available on an iPad near you. The iPad app will allow users to interact with the standard magazine content, as well as access to exclusive stuff specific to the app. The app is free to download, and has free teaser content from the current issue.

MAD Editor John Ficarra jokingly stated, “We’re delighted to bring MAD to the iPad. We think the MAD app may be just the thing to turn the struggling iPad around and make it successful –though most experts think it may be just the thing that kills it altogether.”

The MAD app will feature interactive and animated versions of all currently issues, along with a library of back issues and books. Prices of the content will range from $1.99 for back issues to $4.99 for the current issue--however, if you subscribe to the magazine, the price drops to $1.99 per issue, or $9.99 for a full year (six issues.) Aside from the actual magazine, the app will allow users to access MAD’s blog “Idiotical.”

Crystal Renn Lands Her First Vogue Cover

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Editorials, Health & Beauty, Models,

Crystal Renn on Vogue MexicoThe year 2011 has thus far been a promising one for Crystal Renn, who landed her first Vogue cover for Vogue Mexico's April issue.

Photographed by David Roemer and styled by Sarah Gore-Reeves, Renn brings out the fun, excitement of fashion with her poses and lights up the magazine's pages while also welcoming spring with bold, bright lips, eyeshadow, nails, and clothes.

Admittedly, the coveted Vogue cover gig was long overdue for Renn, who has previously starred in several Vogue editorials, including a food-centric one shot by Terry Richardson under the former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld.

Turned away from a Vogue Italia cover for not being able to fit into the dress the magazine desired, Renn now has been vindicated with a cover that has received an overwhelming amount of praise, prompting many to believe she may appear on the American edition soon.

Check out the rest of the story after the jump for more photos and a behind-the-scenes video!

Items Du Jour: Katy Perry Covers Elle, Lea Michelle Covers Cosmo

Katy Perry on Elle Magazine-- Mother of Johnny Depp's kids and muse to Karl Lagerfeld, Vanessa Paradis, makes eye patches sexy by sporting a black rose one on the cover of i-D Magazine. Is this her hint at wanting a role in Pirates of the Caribbean?

-- Katy Perry tones down her costume look for Elle magazine, where she instead sports a colorful Gucci suit. Looking a bit like Emily Blunt on the cover, Perry's business attire works well for her.

-- Of course, Perry can't always keep to tame pants suits. The 26 year-old appeared at the Mexico City launch of her new fragrance -- Purr by Katy Perry -- in a purple dress that left little to the imagination.

-- Continuing on her unspoken path to rid the cosmetic world of chemicals, supermodel Gisele Bundchen has just proclaimed her detestment of sunscreen, calling it poison. Of course, those who are fighting tirelessly for the prevention of skin cancer are outraged.

-- Speaking of outrage, Glee actress Lea Michele landed the cover of Cosmopolitan wearing a v-cut top that -- gasp -- almost reveals her navel! Naturally, Glee parents who have no concept of the difference between television characters and the people who portray them, are upset.

Justin Bieber's new hair

Behind the scenes at his Rolling Stone shoot, Bieber offered up this updo to his Twitter fans. What do you think of his Robert Pattinson hair?

Victoria Beckham Confesses to Therapy Sessions

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Rants, Rumors,

Victoria Beckham on VogueVictoria Beckham has undergone therapy. The fashion designer - whose 11-year-marriage to soccer player David Beckham has been marred by unsubstantiated claims of infidelity - trusts her spouse completely but feels she needs some help turning her anger into something positive.

"Haven't most people at some time or other? I don't know if I'm balanced or deluded. I don't mean about David - him, I trust completely because we're both such talkers - but I'm quite spiritual. I'd rather turn anger into energy," she said when asked whether she has ever turned to therapy.

However, the 36-year-old star - who has sons Brooklyn,11, Romeo, eight, and five-year-old Cruz with 35-year-old David - admitted she tries not to care about what people say about her, otherwise she would have been driven to suicide "years ago."

"It's never nice when people write hurtful things and as much as I say I don't see it, I'm not stupid. But I've seen both sides of fame and I realize that it's brought me a lot of opportunities. I suppose if I really cared what people say I'd have topped myself years ago."

Justin Bieber Covers February’s Vanity Fair

Justin Bieber on Vanity Fair

Teenage heartthrob Justin Bieber has graduated from Tiger Beat! The 16 year-old singer covers February's issue of Vanity Fair, appropriately covered in a sea of lipstick kisses. If you're an adolescent girl, what's Valentine's Day without a wall-worthy Justin Bieber photo, anyway?

Judging by the magazine's choice in font sizes, Bieber sadly ranks higher in importance than the Kennedys. With that said, I'm hoping that I can't trust the headline beneath his name -- I'd rather trade him in for more Lindsay Lohan coverage.

As far as magazine sales go, here's to hoping that Bieber's bloodthirsty fans are distracted long enough to give Selena some breathing room.

Naked Kim Kardashian Covers W Magazine

Kim Kardashian on W Magazine

First was Harper’s Bazaar. Now W Magazine is cashing in on Kim Kardashian’s willingness to pose nude for their cover.

The most famous of the Kardashian sisters, Kim is making it clear in W‘s art issue that she’s proud of her curves. While the cover utilizes print to hide Kim’s privates, the NSFW inside pages contain photos of her wearing nothing but silver paint. Classy!

I can’t figure out what she craves more: the exhibitionism or the media attention.

James Franco Covers Candy Magazine in Drag

James Franco

I don’t think that James Franco was joking on Saturday Night Live when he claimed to pick his career moves based on randomly selected “idea slips.” As it were, he chose to cover Candy Magazine in drag.

Shot by fashion photographer Terry Richardson, Franco looks virtually unrecognizable in his painted lips and blue eyeshadow.

One has to wonder whether he’s truly that comfortable with his sexuality or if he’s revealing a little something about himself… (for the sake of women everywhere, I’m banking on the former).

Lady Gaga Trades Bubbles in For Gun Bra

Lady Gaga on the cover of Rolling Stone



artist has come a long way since her bubbly, fresh Rolling Stone cover. To prove it, she has ditched the pink lipstick and blonde afro for assault rifles and slick bob.

Still barely clothed for her second Rolling Stones cover, Gaga displays a current habit of reusing her music video wardrobe (i.e. “Telephone” studded bra and panties at a recent Mets game), as it’s obvious these are the same guns from her Alejandro video. Economical or tiresome?

Robsten Goes Noir For Harper’s Bazaar

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on the cover of Harper's BazaarIn a sad but much needed effort to boost magazine sales, Harper’s Bazaar placed Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on their December cover.

While their pose on the cover comes off rather awkward (where is her neck? why do his fingers don’t seem to want to touch her? why does she look like Ashley Greene?), the photos coinciding with their interviews (seen after the jump) seem too natural to be an act, piling more evidence to their questionable real-life romance.

Shot by Mark Seliger, the photo shoot is very noir-inspired—the goal was to make Kristen look “vampish and sexy.” The tomboy traded in her Converses and Rock & Republic frocks for a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown, as well as Valentino and Yves St. Laurent pieces. While anything and everything looks good on Pattinson, he wears Dior Homme (in case you wanted to note that somewhere in your homemade shrine).

I’m beginning to think that the two stay tight-lipped about their relationship just so we crave these magazine features and interviews—would we really be that interested in all of this Twilight hoopla if we weren’t trying to figure out if they were together in real life?
