the state of being obsessed with someone or something
• an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes
on a person’s mind
BELLO mag’s first ever OBSESSION issue takes our fashion, entertainment, and lifestyle mantra to a whole new level. Having been positively obsessed with so many things over the years, we decided to compile these obsessions into one exciting issue. Featuring Jenna Dewan Tatum
(American Horror Story and 10 Years) as our main cover (with a bonus Video feature of Jenna behind the scenes dancing on the BELLO mag set), talking about dance, her own personal style, and other things that she is obsessed with.
Our Fashion cover brings an amazing interview with AMC’s The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus (inaugurating our NYC editorial team led by our executive editor Leslie Alejandro and photographer Karl Simone). We also talk about Military fashion trend and feature fashion
editorials from around the world.
The Entertainment section opens with an interview of The Nerdist, Chris Hardwick (host of Talking Dead) with a very intimate look at who he is and how a simple blog idea has turned into a multimedia empire. NYC’s “Most Fashionable Actor”, Vincent Piazza from HBO’s hit show,
Boardwalk Empire, dishes out from his wide range of roles to his long lashes. Who else would ask Brian White about the reasons why Tyler PErry gets him in his movies, about his favorite fashion brands, and his philanthropic project, Black Carpenter, in a single interview? Also, you have seen him in the latest Resident Evil, but his chiseled abs and bulging arms had to be wrapped in the latest fashion for this sexy photo shoot and interview “Shawn of The Dead” starring actor, Shawn Roberts.
The Olympic games are over, but we can not stop obsessing over the gold medalists around the world that inspire us and have successfully turned that obsessions into a huge success. “Front Row With Alex Gregory” is a close up look into this amazing man’s life, and the inspiration that got him to where every Olympian dreams of being; at the top of the highest spot at the Olympic Stadium.
“Ebony Glamore” is our first ever full spread editorial about makeup and products that make African-American women’s beauty our Beauty Obsession of the Month. Also, feature a special edition of our Beauty Bar that is dedicated to the National Breast Cancer Awareness
There was no better way to close this issue than The Voice’s Christina Milian. She is a talented, beautiful, fun singer/actress/mother of one and probably one of the sexiest women on earth. Before this Social Siren taught us how to “Dip It Low” in 2004, she won us over
with the ultra -catchy “AM to PM” at the turn of the 21st century. Today, she is a social media correspondent on The Voice and is getting ready to release her newest album to the masses.
Stay positively OBSESSED, and let us know what you think about our new issue on Twitter @BELLOmag
