EXCLUSIVE: Classic Teen Mag BOP Ceases Monthly Publication Comments (0)

Bop

Devon-on-bop-magazine-coverBop Magazine, founded in 1983, has ceased monthly publication, becoming an occasional special. Those in the teen world recognize Bop as a staple of the scene, a go-to for whatever makes tweens squeal. The publication was initially black-and-white with color pinups, but had, over time, become all-color.

The company that owns Bop, Laufer Media, also owns a slew of other '80s and '90s teen titles that have changed hands over the years, such as 16, but its only regular publication at the moment is the ultimate teen mag: Tiger Beat, born in 1965, which is as of the first quarter of 2014 the #1-selling teen-entertainment magazine. Still!

BOP-MAGAZINE_AUG-14How many of these people do you recognize???

Perhaps if there is another teen invasion, Bop and other titles from the past will see re-inventions. You may think there is a current teen invasion, with big stars like Justin Bieber and One Direction in the news on a daily basis, but most of the big-time teen stars of today are old news. New blood is needed—stat.

Good luck to Tiger Beat—it's a keeper!

Tasty Chris Pratt covers Entertainment Weekly (July 18, 2014) in shots to publicize Guardians of the Galaxy.

Inside, he remembers a humbling audition for Avatar:

“They said they want sombody that has 'that thing,' that 'It factor.' I walked into that room knowing that I did not have that thing, and I walked out thinking I would never have that thing, probably.”

By George, I think he's (now) got It.

A Single Man: Joe Manganiello For PEOPLE Comments (0)

People (July 14, 2014) really knows how to get me to buy it—their cover is devoted to “Hollywood's Hottest Bachelors!”, some of which might actually be heterosexual, ladies.

One of whom I'd bet my bottom (dollar) is straight is coverboy Joe Manganiello. Joe says any woman looking to forge a relationship with him has to put up with a lot:

“I am part Sicilian. I am passionate. I am a hot-blooded person. If you don't like spicy, then maybe I'm not for you. I like hugs and kisses and snuggling. I'm a physical person. If you're not, then it ain't gonna work.”

Gee, that really sounds like some heavy baggage to deal with.

After the jump, three more cute dudes from the same issue...

The Heroine Of The Story Comments (0)

Madonna

I'm working on a rather complete Madonna magazine-cover post and just ran across a brand-new one: As Is #21 uses a 1985 candid (a lovely one) to illustrate a sordid, poorly written (“Peter Shue was an American dream to the average impressionable mind,” it begins!) cover story about a drug dealer whose story sounds like something out of Goodfellas.

The Madonna angle? She allegedly met him in the '90s and tried to get him out of the (heroin) game, starting with an appearance in her “Secret” video...which never came to pass, as he stood her up in favor of his girlfriend. Arlyne Brickman, a mobbed up moll and prostitute, was a federal informant who wound up helping get this guy locked up, and apparently Madonna was being courted to turn her life story into a movie. Madonna herself was not called to testify because she sent word that it wouldn't help his case.

It's messy story, one in which he casually says he “hit that” and wasn't impressed with Madonna's stardom. One of the tackier Madonna cover stories ever, which makes it, of course, a must-have.

Race To Re-Invent: Hunter McIntyre For MEN'S JOURNAL Comments (0)

Mens-Journal-1

HunterHunter McIntyre (shot by Ture Lillegraven) tells Men's Journal (July 2014) that he starting participating in the new sport of Spartan Racing after feeling empty about his life:

“In 2011, Hunter McIntyre was a 22-year-old washed-up male model. His dreams of joining an elite military training program were crushed when he was rejected by the Navy SEALs. He was living in Malibu at a buddy's 'bro mansion,' plotting a new career as a celebrity personal trainer, but mostly taking too much acid and Ecstasy. 'I was burned out,' he says.”

Hunter-1

This whole Spartan Race thing sounds pretty crazy, but it's probably where he gets the body, more of which is on display after the jump...

Virgin Territory With Todd Sanfield Comments (0)

DNA-Todd Sanfield

Todd Sanfield Speedo shirtless pubes pecs musclesModel and underwear designer Todd Sanfield covers DNA #173, featured in images shot in the U.S. Virgin Islands by Kevin McDermott. McDermott shot Sanfield for a book, Virgin Island.

Of packing for the trip, Sanfield says:

“I knew the entire time I was going to be either in swimwear or naked, so I didn't need to pack much. However, I did bring a few sample pieces from my new collection that had not been shot yet, along with a snorkel and a set of fins.”

The resulting images are paradisiacal, for sure.
