There are a number of entertainment blogs, TV programs, and show business-related news outlets. Many of them follow a familiar formula. Every story or feature is part gossip, part industry development, and part opinion, and often, any “facts” that cannot be proven, are passed off as distinct possibilities. Rarely do these various media outlets address the art in the music or fashion projects they are chronicling or reviewing. An interview may reference past works, but for the most part, entertainment journalists seem more interested in the artist’s personal life, rather than their artistic process.
For some people, this level of entertainment reporting is enough. For others, periodicals that delve further into the creative process are far more interesting. Publications like Cliché Magazine focus on the art within the entertainment and fashion fields, and are, consequently, able to deliver a considerably more wide-reaching and engaging analysis of the work they cover. By approaching the artists, films, fashion trends, and music developments from the standpoint of the innovator rather than the businessman, the articles present a fresher, edgier perspective on current creative innovation and new works on the horizon.
