I remember once when I was working on a magazine, and one of the male editors was going on a field trip with one of his sons.

I’m not trying to live a social media life or a life to just be in a magazine.

I get home from work at six or seven. When I’m busy, I set my alarm for three, get out of bed at quarter past three. I have a cup of tea and read a magazine and take the dogs for a walk up the lane.

I grew up with ‘Life’ magazine on the coffee table, Life cereal on the breakfast table, and the game of Life on the card table. People were just so happy to be alive, I guess.

I’ll never forget the day when a woman came up to me and said, ‘No, you could never be on a magazine cover. Your face features don’t work; your eyes are small, you have a small face but a big nose.’ I was only 14 and I had never noticed any of that stuff, you know?

I studied journalism at university, and I started a little bit of work on a woman’s magazine called Minx that was aimed at 18- to 24-year-olds.

You don’t create a magazine for your readers. You don’t take a poll, you know, like the politicians do, and find out what they’re thinking and what they want… You’re supposed to be telling people what the hell you think is exciting and dynamic and thought-provoking, and do it – and do it your way.
I never really endeavored to hide anything. But there were times I chose not to relegate my history to the back page of a magazine, which to me is sort of akin to putting your biography on a bathroom wall.
A friend told me about the casting notice for ‘Queer Eye.’ I was in Chicago and I had a contract with ‘Esquire’ magazine, so had been coming to New York City regularly and thought I’d catch a cheap flight, crash on a friend’s sofa and do this hilarious audition that I had no chance of winning.
When I’m 80 and sagging all over, I can tell my grandkids, ‘Look, when I was a lad, ‘People’ magazine thought I was sexy!’
Twitter is the new rock magazine of the modern age. When I was a kid, we had magazines and journalists and interviews and articles and pinups and posters to follow our favourite artists. Nowadays? Twitter is actually the new rock magazine.
As a former music magazine editor, I still pine for the days when I used to know about all the best jams and new bands.
I love trade magazines – any trade’s magazine: by entering into what is taken for granted in a world not your own, you better recognize the vastness of the social universe – for there are so, so many worlds that are not your own.

‘The Paris Review’s mandate has been the same for fifty years. First and foremost, this magazine is for writers; the editors’ task is to support and celebrate them, especially at the beginning of their careers, but also as they move forward, venturing stories that are creative, risky, new.
Right now I’m reading every fashion magazine I can find. As a shoe designer, I feel it’s my responsibility to learn as much as I can about the business, past and present.

I told my mom, ‘I’m not buying another magazine until I can get past this thought of looking like the girl on the cover’. She said, “Miley, you are the girl on the cover,’ and I was, like, ‘I know, but I don’t feel like that girl every day.’ You can’t always feel perfect.
I respect newspapers, but the reality is that magazine ‘photojournalism’ is finished. They want illustrations, Photoshopped pictures of movie stars.

Before I ever heard about ’60 Minutes,’ I had been a writer, a columnist for ‘Life’ magazine and for ‘Newsweek’ – that was about as high as you could get in column writing. I care about my writing. I’m not a quack-quack TV journalist.
The ultimate goal for me is to be the world champion – it’s all I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid – so when the money that comes with it is life-changing, yes, that’s nice, but get The Ring magazine belt, being considered the world champion, is something money can’t buy.
So people ask, ‘But how can you work for a friend?’ I say it’s because I know that the magazine is called ‘O.’ The bottom line is somebody has to have the final word. Oprah’s not right all the time, but her record is pretty damn good. That’s not to say you can’t disagree.
The pieces I’ve written for ‘Outside’ magazine are definitely my best work, and they’re virtually all about the outdoors.
I think in the ’80s, we certainly wrestled with what was the role of ‘Playboy Magazine’ in a post-sexual revolution, post-feminist world.

In the late ’90s, the magazine formerly known as ‘The Wizard’ came after me strong and hard. I was the brunt of jokes for an entire staff of angry fanboys; as much as can be poured on was poured on. But I kept focus, as anyone in that situation should.
