It ain’t easy being in print media these days!
The magazine biz is seeing less and less sales every year! New reports show that celebrity mag rags sold 12% FEWER copies last year!
And drastic times call for drastic measures!
Many of them now plan to increase their prices! Like People magazine, which starting today will sell for $4.99, up from only $1!!
Woah Nelly! That’s one huge increase!
Their ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ and other special issues have been selling at the nearly 5 dollar price for awhile but now ALL of their weekly issues will cost customers nearly 5 times more!
They’re not the only ones though!
OK!, Star, and the National Enquirer have also upped their cost from $3.99 to $4.99!
Never fear though, loyal Perezcious readers!
Because Perez Hilton is still 100% free to read!
