Glamour Editor’s Job Interview Edge: Trend Boards

TheFashionSpotLogoFun little Q&A over at The Fashion Spot by editor-at-large Julie Bensman. It’s with her friend and former LA Confidential co-worker, Becky Malinsky.

Bensman opens the conversation with a general question. Malinsky, now the fashion market editor at Glamour, responds with a great anecdote:

“The funny thing about New York is that you have to be here to find a job. Since my days as a journalism major, I knew I wanted to work at a fashion magazine, but putting out resumes in Madison, Wisconsin wasn’t cutting it. After graduation, I moved to NYC, took meetings with anyone who would see me and after a few odd PR jobs, landed at Lucky magazine as a market assistant.

Rating the Media’s Super Bowl Parties

Several media companies are going to throw Super Bowl parties this weekend. While we appreciate the tradition, it always presents a problem: How do you choose which one to attend? Or, more specifically, how do you choose which one to imagine yourself attending when in reality you’re at home eating Doritos? Luckily for you, we’ve rated several parties.

The FishbowlNY Five Star Rating System™ is extremely technical, so read this carefully — one star means the party sucks, five means you should definitely pretend that you’re rich and cool enough to go. Below are the ratings, via The New York Post’s breakdown.

ESPN ★ ★ ★

Pros: Magic Johnson and Victor Cruz are attending. Performances from Kendrick Lamar and Robin Thicke.
Cons: Joe Flacco will be there. No one likes the Ravens.

Men’s Titles Ad Pages Surge in 2013

magazine stack GThough print ad pages for magazines were down four percent in 2013 compared to 2012, that’s actually good news. PIB’s data showed that the loss was less of one than in 2012, when ad pages declined by eight percent. Not only that, but most men’s titles showed strong numbers for the year.

Men’s Fitness led the way with a 27 percent jump in ad pages compared to 2012, followed closely by Men’s Health, which increased its pages by 25 percent. Esquire (up 17 percent), Details (+15 percent) and GQ (+10 percent) also did well. The outlier was Maxim, which saw ad pages plummet by 16 percent.

A few other magazines that had good print ad page showings for 2012 are below.

Gearing Up for the GQ Barbershop

GQChris Mitchell, GQ vice president and publisher, calls it “the ideal intersection of style and entertainment.” Not to mention a cool place for NYC Super Bowl visitors to get that pre-VIP party trim.

GLAAD Takes Issue with Duck Dynasty Star’s GQ Remarks

PhilRobertsonThe PR blitz for A&E’s reality TV juggernaut continues. While things went swimmingly for this week’s Hollywood Reporter cover story, such is not the case with a GQ feature.

Per Ad Age‘s Jeanine Poggi, GLAAD is already on the case, asking A&E if it stands by Phil Robertson‘s comments in the January GQ article. Robertson damns homosexuals and other groups with a quote from Corinthians. He later makes some reprehensible remarks that bring to mind Toronto mayor Rob Ford‘s “plenty at home” statement:

“It seems like, to me, a vagina – as a man – would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

Cover Battle: ESPN The Magazine or GQ

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This time around we have ESPN The Magazine taking on GQ. For its NBA Preview issue, ESPN featured LeBron James. As Knicks fans, anytime we see James we have to fight the urge to rant about him leaving us with the ultra-selfish Melo and Amar’e “No Knees” Stoudemire. You’ll just have to trust us that we’re not yelling at the top of our lungs right now.

Anthony Weiner Remains Unlikeable

It’s almost impossible to like Anthony Weiner. He’s pompous, egocentric and — though there is plenty of evidence that he’s not the brightest bulb in the pack  — he continues to act as if he’s a brilliant, gifted man. In a new GQ profile, Weiner remains extremely unlikeable. Here are some quotes:

On the theory that he’s his own worst enemy:

I’ve heard that. Thought about it quite a bit. No doubt the obstacles in my way were obstacles I created. But I don’t think so. I just didn’t think of it all as a capital offense. And I rationalized it. I thought, ‘This person’s my friend. Why would they turn on me?’ But it isn’t about harm I’ve done to the world — it’s about harm I’ve done to my wife. So rationalizing it is asinine.

Even when he admits to doing something wrong he finds a way to say it wasn’t really that wrong.

On failing to become mayor:
