The End of Vibe?: Part Three — Vibe Magazine Folded

What have I been saying about Vibe Magazine?

I said it here and here.

The end has come. I can’t wait to see what The Reaper at Magazine Death Pool has to say about this. I really used to read Vibe a lot.

Whenever I would go to Borders, I would always look for Vibe but the content literally just evaporated. I had said it before that top 30 lists of who is hot in music, no one is going to pay for that!

As a magazine fiend, I hate seeing magazines fold but to be square and linear here, Vibe is gone because it didn’t know who it was. It didn’t know if it was a magazine for black people or a multicultural magazine wannabee like Trace.

I will write a more detailed analysis in a few days time.

  1. I think in the beginning Vibe was an important urban culture magazine. I remember my siblings and I in the mid to late 1990s read Vibe a lot. The reason Vibe was important was because it gave a platform to black youth 18 to 34. Unfortunately, Vibe magazine became more desperate and the quality of the magazine went down the tubes.

  2. Did you see the hot mess that is on the last cover, a practically naked blonde trashy looking christina millian with the dream clutching her boobies…… tasteless!!!

  3. Aulelia,

    Vibe needed to be put out of its misery. But atleast I still have several vintage Vibes from the early 90’s to look through. Back then Vibe was great!
