SKY magazine

SKY magazine

started in the late 1980s which ceased publication in 2001.

It was an entertainment magazine dealing mainly in celebrities featured in film, tv and music. It should not be confused with the SKY magazine which publicized the SKY television network. There were also occasionally sections on childhood nostalgia. The magazine was aimed at young people of both sexes, a fairly unique stance by the mid 1990s. Cover stars were both male and female and were photographed and commented from a sexually interested viewpoint regardless of their sex. In the later years there also featured a number of 'Sex Issues', asking for responses from straight and gay people of both sexes.

Another frequent feature for a number of years was the back page advice column column from Karen Krizanovich, an American journalist who would generally belittle advice seekers.

From the mid 90's cover stars were in the great majority female, and of a more scantily clad appearance than previously. In later years, the magazine was frequently found alongside Loaded, FHM and Maxim on the newsagent's shelves.

Famous, often nude or scantily clad, cover stars included Madonna (most frequently featured), Louise Nurding, Kylie Minogue, Mark Wahlberg, Brad Pitt, Nick Kamen and Ewan McGregor.
