Interview Magazine Has Folded

Журнал Interview объявил о своем закрытии

Interview, the celebrity interview magazine co-founded in 1969 by gay pop-artist Andy Warhol, officially shut down today after facing two unresolved lawsuits from former executives who claimed the magazine stiffed them for huge sums.

Interview's offices are reported to be closed effective immediately and it is unclear if any issues already in the pipeline will be published. Staff of the publication, which has filed for chapter seven bankruptcy, were informed of the decision in a meeting today.

Founded by Warhol, Village Voice co-founder John Wilcock, and poet/photographer Gerard Malanga in 1969, the fame-focused monthly was best known for its intimate celebrity-on-celebrity interviews accompanied by original portrait photography.

Interview magazine has ceased publishing with immediate effect and closed their NY office. Templer was previously accused by an anonymous woman in the Spotlight investigation of overstepping professional boundaries, a charge he vehemently denied the claims, saying: "I deny these vague and anonymous allegations".

Fabien Baron, who left interview as editorial director in April due to lack of payment after a decade as editorial director, said he's "saddened and surprised by the news that Brant Publications has chosen to shutter the cultural icon that Interview has been since its founding". A source told WWD that Interview "owes everybody money".

In addition, Jane Katz, a former associate publisher, claims Interview owes her $230,000 in unpaid fees and that she was also unjustly fired, and the former president of the magazine Dan Ragone also stated that Interview owes him $170,000.

“Interview” Magazine, Founded By Andy Warhol, Is Shutting Down After 50 Years

What do you think of the closure of Interview magazine?

Still, the initial Interview mission and aesthetic inspired many other publications and strands of pop culture, putting Warhol's Factory muses and the Studio 54 crowd into a publication reflective of the New York City art and club scene the rest of the world was dying to get a glimpse of.

People took to Twitter to mourn the end of an era.

Recent examples of this include Seth Rogen's conversation with rapper 21 Savage, Janet Mock's freewheeling interview with Kim Kardashian and a chat with the choreographer of Childish Gambin's This Is America.

Interview also always stuck to its guns.
