Teen Vogue Will Be Missed

by Victor Wardell 

On Thurs., November 2, 2017 Condé Nast announced that the print component of Teen Vogue will be discontinued.

This brings up questions like why? And, could it have been saved?

Many speculate the cancellation could have resulted from how controversial the magazine has become. Many parents have yet to forgive when Condé Nast published, “A Guide To Anal Sex.”

Teen Vogue has featured some of the biggest teen stars including Justin BieberZendaya, One Direction, Kendall and Kylie JennerDemi Lovato, Rowan Blanchard and Yara Shahid.

Readers don’t fret because you can still catch the new editions online.

We live in a millennial world of technology and Teen Vogue realizes that Generation Z is no longer plastering their tearsheets on their bedroom walls.

Aly Ryan

Aly Ryan was born September 25, 1995 to German parents who at the time were war correspondents in Moscow, Russia.

Traveling from one place to another at a very young age she learned several languages and eventually moved back to Germany where she developed a love for the music her father would play for her. Inspired by songwriters like Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Pink Floyd, she soon started writing her own music. At the age of 16, shortly after her handicapped brother passed away, she packed her bags and made the move all the way to Los Angeles on her own.

She has since been working with her favorite producers including legends like Babyface, Red One and Toby Gad, recently releasing her debut single ‘No Parachute’ which has been charting on the Soundcloud top 50 pop chart worldwide since its release with currently over 1 million streams.

VEVO HALLOWEEN EVENT

VEVO HALLOWEEN EVENT TO FEATURE PERFORMANCES FROM KHALID, JULIA MICHAELS, AMINÈ, JESSIE REYEZ

Craneway Pavillion, Bay Area, San Francisco

Saturday, October 28th

 

Event to be Presented by Honda Stage

 

After four hugely successful years in the UK, Vevo announced it will bring its flagship Halloween event to the US in 2017, featuring an incredible line up of this year’s most talked about emerging artists. For the first time, the event will happen simultaneously at the Craneway Pavillion in the Bay Area, San Francisco and Victoria Warehouse in Manchester on Saturday, October 28th. Presented by Honda Stage, the US show will host full live sets from 2017 Vevo LIFT artists Khalid, Julia Michaels, Aminé and Jessie Reyez for 4,000 music fans. A fifth artist will be announced before the show in October.

 

In addition to a night jam packed with new music, Vevo Halloween guests can expect to take a journey into the Other World, a parallel universe where nothing is quite what it seems, a place where reality and nightmares collide.There are sounds coming from the darkness. There are objects moving in the shadows. Something is watching and following your every step.

 

Presale tickets will be available at 9am PST Friday September 14th priced at $5 (including booking fees) from http://www.vevo.com/halloween (Guests have to be aged 18 and over). VOD content from the show will be made available on Vevo October 31st at Noon ET/9am PT.

 

Vevo LIFT is a six-week concentrated campaign in which Vevo gives fans a first-hand look into each artist’s journey – from intimate performances, video premieres, to behind-the-scenes content. Throughout the cycle, Vevo releases a series of compelling footage including “Becoming,” a short film which allows artists to tell their story in a unique way. Vevo also releases original programming titled “Stripped,” which features an intimate performance by the selected artist.

 

Previous LIFT artists include Halsey, Shawn Mendes, Tori Kelly, Aminé, Alessia Cara, Sam Smith, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, One Direction and more.

 

Khalid released “Location” before his high school graduation and it garnered over 1.52 million plays in less than two months, which led to his major label deal with Right Hand Music Group/RCA Records. Khalid’s debut album, American Teen, has received mass critical acclaim with praise from The New York Times, TIME Magazine, Billboard, NYLON, and many more. Billboard stated, “…effortlessly excellent…the kid is still so young, but this body of work is beyond his years”. Khalid has also performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Good Morning America, The Late Late Show With James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and at this year’s SXSW where he won MTV’s Woodie To Watch Award. Additionally, Khalid embarked on his first-ever headlining tour in both the U.S. and select European cities where he sold-out every single date before the album was even released. Khalid has over one billion streams worldwide across all partners, and he is one of two solo teenagers to reach the top 10 on the Billboard 200 in the last 12 months. This summer, Khalid was the face of Forever 21’s Summer Digital Campaign, #F21xMusic, Men’s Line, and was named MTV Push: Artist to Watch for the month of July. He was nominated for a 2017 BET Award for Best New Artist, a Teen Choice Award for Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song for “Location”, and he recently won Best New Artist at the MTV Video Music Awards. “Location” is certified double platinum in the US and Canada and platinum in Australia, and New Zealand. American Teen is also certified Gold in the U.S and Canada.

  

Julia Michaels is quickly cementing herself as the biggest global breakthrough artist of 2017 with the release of her multi-platinum selling debut single, “Issues.” With worldwide consumption approaching 5 million, “Issues” is the best-selling song by a new artist released in 2017, according to Nielsen Music. It is also the highest on-demand audio streaming song by a new artist released this year. The song has also become the ninth Top 40 hit Julia has co-written on the Billboard Hot 100, and marks her first as a solo artist.

Aminé’s 2017 full-length debut, Good For [Republic Records] immediately made an indelible impact upon arrival. XXL chose him for a coveted spot as one of its 2017 “Freshman Class” cover stars. In his first major profile,The New York Times described the record as “amiable, inventive and idiosyncratic, one of the year’s most intriguing hip-hop albums and also a bold statement of left-field pop,” while Pitchfork appropriately called it “the soundtrack for an almost sober drive home.” Between explosive sets at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and beyond, he delivered show-stopping performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and more, solidifying himself as a force of nature on stage.

 

Jessie Reyez released the first song, “Figures,” off her debut EP “Kiddo” in late 2016. A violent heartbreak anthem, the song spoke intimately to people around the world – earning itself a lot of attention from multiple labels and millions of plays across multiple channels and platforms. Inspired by some of her most emotional experiences, the EP is a soundscape of Jessie’s life. Whether sad, angry or triumphant, “Kiddo” gracefully crosses lines and callously ignores boundaries.
