To start of my music research I decided to research the covers of music magazines first. To begin with I simply searched "Music magazine covers" on google images. I emmidiately noticed a trend, most of the popular looking magazines seemed to have celebrites headlining them. Looking through some of the results from google images I started to notice that 'Vibe' and 'Blender' magazines seem to stand out most. Both magazines have celebrities headlining them. I looked through previous magazines issues and celebrities headlining these magazine seem a regular occurance for these two magazines. The celebrity overlapping the title shows that these two magazines are established.
