VIBE-ing Out...

Another magazine in the dust, say it ain't so! VIBE Magazine has folded. Personally, it is my favorite magazine, the first magazine I ever surscribed to LOL! They covered everything from fashion, video vixens, R&B, Hip-Hop, the whole nine. Then they always closed out with their classic 20 Questions. Ahhh man, this mag will be missed by me! This is what The New York Times said:

"Vibe, one of the nation’s leading popular music magazines, is closing immediately, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Word leaked to music and media news Web sites early this afternoon, and the spokeswoman, Tracy Nguyen, said the Vibe staff would be formally notified in a meeting at 2 p.m. She said she did not know how many people would be laid off as a result of the closure.

Vibe’s closure leaves just one large-circulation magazine, The Source, focusing on hip-hop and R&B. The Source has had its own troubles, going through a bankruptcy and emerging under new ownership last year. A rock-focused magazine, Blender, folded last year..."

The final cover will be topless Christina Milian and her fiance, The-Dream. They sucha mix-match couple to me, and I was hoping for a better cover but hey, just as long as the final issue is bomb. Below is some of my favorite covers.
