WHAT IS IT?
A celebrity magazine that is published every week.
WHAT'S INSIDE THE MAGAZINE?
Closer is mainly photographs of celebrities with a bit of text by each one and some short articles that are nearly all about celebrities. There is diet advice that is healthy eating mainly and recipe plans also, at the back of the magazine there is a short television section that tells you what is on and what Closer suggest that you should watch.
WHAT I THINK
I do not like this magazine very much and it repeats itself a lot over the weeks. A lot of the magazine is filled with how fat or thin celebrities are and I think that is promoting poor body image because this magazine is aimed at girls and young women. A recent article was about a popular American singer who had been photographed bending over in her bikini and Closer were critical of some rolls in her stomach that we all would have if we bend over, I felt a shame for this lady who is young herself and should not have to suffer abuse like that when she has got a beautiful figure.
Closer is nearly all about reality stars now and there is a programme called The Only Way Is Essex, I have not seen this programme but know all about it because sometimes one of the stars is on every page in Closer. It is very boring when they just have a few minor celebrities but my husband says that is because people like that want to be famous so they let magazines print what they want to, if they wrote about big celebrities like Madonna they would risk being sued.
I think that sums it up very well, this is a very trash magazine that likes to be horrible to people. The real life stories are not any nicer because they print articles that are going to make ordinary people look bad, I think some of these people have told their story and they do not realise that the magazine is going to change things to make it look like it is their fault and they sometimes use unflattering photographs also.
The best thing about Closer are the letters pages because they are very funny to read, I do not think they are supposed to be funny but most of them sound like they are made up and the experts who answer the letters give out very bad advice. I would not write to a magazine like this for advice because I think they just want letters that will shock people who are reading and do not care.
I have not bought Closer for about 2 months because I buy magazines for my clients to read and I saw that non of my ladies were reading this one so it is no point me buying it because I do not read it myself anymore. It is not popular now but it used to be so I think they must have changed it.
Closer magazine costs £1.20 and it is printed every week.

Summary: This is a very bad magazine and I do not recommend it to you
