I have long been a fan of Essence magazine, even after it was bought by Time Warner and was no longer a Black-owned magazine. I’m aware that print media is losing its popularity and I think I’m one of the few people that will still buy a magazine. I’ve always been a subscriber to magazines that I can relate to like Honey, Suede, Vibe Vixen, etc. because I love the glossy covers, high fashion spreads and the celeb interviews. What I have been noticing whenever I hit up a local drugstore and browse through the mags is that EVERY cover features the same people over and over again.
