X Factor Magazine

I find it sad that the magazine was once everywhere and now they shove it on some cardboard contraption which only holds about 5 copies.
 
They seriously need to redesign this.
The editorial content is very good, exactly like a music magazine should be, but the overcrowded cover makes it look cheap.

I am traveling to London tomorrow and I am one of the reasons I am hyped is that I will buy this as soon as I arrive to read on the train!

There's no Tesco at the airport?


I hadn't thought of that, BUT there were many copies at the WHSmiths you see as soon as you leave passport check. Am about to read it, Attitude Fantastic Man got all my time yesteday.
 
I really enjoyed the interview with Dannii in last weeks issue, she's always interesting it's just a shame it wasn't longer. The only thing this magazine is missing is more of a heat torso of the week type thing - we all like shirtless celebs! Please let this magazine run and run it's a treat every Wednesday.
 
Popjustice founder Peter Robinson is leaving his role of senior editor at X Factor spin off magazine X at Christmas.

The weekly magazine launched in September to coincide with the new series of the X Factor. Issue 11 recently hit the newsstands, featuring an interview with contestant Paije Richardson and a look inside the X Factor house.

Robinson says helping to launch the magazine was great “but with the show ending [at Christmas] it feels like the right time to go”.

So what does that mean for the magazine? Will it stop at Christmas? Might it only continue when the X Factor is on? I for one will really miss it if it goes and I think Peter and team have done a fantastic job with it.

When the US version starts they could re...well as I type we don't know if stateside if the show would be a success yet, but if it was, would it be released over there too?

Suppose it raises a point, whats the point when the show isn't on air?
 
I can understand why he'd want to leave. I do like the magazine but it's "HOORAY WE LOVE EVERYTHING!" attitude is slightly misaligned with the Popjustice ethos.

I agree with Numerology. A magazine like the front page would be great, in the sense that there would be quirky critiquing as well as the normal stuff... but I don't think there would be an audience for that.
 
Hi, has anyone still got a copy of issue 10 please? Am interested in the forthcoming Christmas single review they did on Gamu, Steve Brookstein etc. THINK it was issue 10! (Page 24 if I'm right!) Thanks.

When it started, I heard that it was weekly (when the X Factor is on) and monthly (after it finishes!)
 
Oh monthly when X Factor isn't on makes sense actually. And in response to the completely positive angle it puts on everything well I really don't agree I think that there is more of a realistic element to this. Yes it doesn't say this is shit but it isn't popjustice magazine we have the website for that.
 
I bought this weeks issue today after not getting it for a few weeks, I hope it continues but monthly when the shows finished is a good idea or even fortnightly!
 
So tomorrow's issue is officially the last one! Gutted, it's really, really good.

I had a feeling it would finish after X Factor, I've found it extremely hard to get in the last couple of weeks and I live in central London.

Is it? Ah well, it's a shame, have to admit, I haven't bought the last 3 weeks. I hope it comes back next year so its a counterpart to the show
 
Where has it been said that it's the last issue? A real shame that it's not coming back - I could handle if it was not in shops until the X Factor returns because without regular news on the show it would be quite hard to sell but it really needs to return.
