Fab­u­lous reads

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - ENTERTAINMENT -

IN the en­ter­tain­ment busi­ness, im­age plays a lead­ing role. But are looks ev­ery­thing? In the cur­rent is­sue, avail­able now at news­stands ev­ery­where, Galaxie pon­ders this ques­tion.

Scratch­ing be­neath the sur­face, Galaxie makes some tough calls, for­mu­lates an opin­ion and de­cides who among the hand­picked bevy of beau­ties and hand­some hunks fea­tured in the Oct 1 cover story have got­ten by on their tal­ent and who have merely made it big on their ap­peal­ing vis­ages.

Among the top stars in the spot­light are its cover girl Tay­lor Swift, Trans­form­ers hot­tie Megan Fox, diva Bey­once and High School Mu­si­cal cutie Zac Efron.

It is a no-holds-barred rat­ing sys­tem, where even pop­u­lar favourites like Swift and Fox come un­der heavy scru­tiny. Black Crowes front­man Chris Robin­son sug­gested that Swift’s in­cred­i­ble suc­cess is man­u­fac­tured, and that she lacks in­di­vid­u­al­ity while Fox her­self has ad­mit­ted, that she’s “no Meryl Streep” and doesn’t ex­pect to win an Os­car any­time soon.

So check out this riv­et­ing read and de­cide for your­self if these stars got the part be­cause they look the part, or are they true con­tenders for knock­out tal­ent?

Galaxie also gives read­ers a chance to get up­close and per­sonal with singer Ke$ha, whose rags to riches tale un­folds. While you’re at it, you can also ac­quaint your­self with the mu­sic that made Ke$ha a star, and cor­rectly sing the lyrics to her lat­est hit Take It Off in Galaxie’s Song­words sec­tion.

For those who love juicy gos­sip, the mag­a­zine has loads of that too. There’s the lat­est buzz from Hollywood to Bol­ly­wood and across the globe. Ex­posed this is­sue are Glee’s Lea Michele whose diva an­tics aren’t earn­ing her any gold stars, Robert Pat­tin­son’s near death ex­pe­ri­ence and Adrian Brody’s big apol­ogy for call­ing on Kris­ten Ste­wart to quit act­ing if all she can do is moan about it.

There are also loads of pretty pic­tures to glance at in Snap­shots and posters of Tokio Ho­tel, 2PM and Chace Craw­ford to stare ador­ingly at, and of course, con­tests to score cool mer­chan­dise and Adam Lam­bert con­cert tick­ets.

The Oct 1 is­sue has some­thing for ev­ery­one. Most im­por­tantly it is en­ter­tain­ment at its most page-turn­ing.
