Cover Juicy Stories on Black Hollywood

Unlike People or Us Weekly, Juicy covers a segment of Hollywood that doesn’t always get mainstream attention: black celebrities. And with the majority of its content written out of house, this glossy is looking for new writers who understand its passion for African-American pop culture.

“We love freelancers,” said editor-in-chief Paula T. Renfroe. “But can I give some advice? Familiarize yourself with the publication. I know everybody says that, but I’ll get spiritual advice columns, relationship advice columns, financial advice columns, and that’s just not what Juicy is about. Celeb news, beauty, hair, style — yes. Advice on how to start a business — no.”
