SKY Magazine was a British magazine that was published between 1987 and 2001. It was an entertainment magazine dealing mainly in celebrities featured in film, television and music.[1]

It should not be confused with the Sky magazine sent free to subscribers to British Sky Broadcasting. There were also occasionally sections on childhood nostalgia.

Originally produced by News International's magazine division as a fortnightly, the title struggled and was sold to EMAP, who relaunched it as a monthly.[2]

The magazine was aimed at young people of both sexes, a fairly unique stance by the mid-1990s. Cover stars were both male and female and were photographed and commented from a sexually interested viewpoint regardless of their sex. In the later years there also featured a number of 'Sex Issues', asking for responses from hetero and gay people of both sexes.

Another frequent feature for a number of years was the back page advice column column from Karen Krizanovich, an American journalist who would generally belittle advice seekers, helping them to solve their own problems.[3]

From the mid-1990s, cover stars were in the great majority female, and of a more scantily clad appearance than previously. In later years, the magazine was frequently found alongside Loaded, FHM and Maxim on the newsagents shelves.[4][5]

Famous, often nude or scantily clad, cover stars included Madonna (most frequently featured), Louise Nurding, Anna Friel, Kylie Minogue, Mark Wahlberg, Brad Pitt, Nick Kamen and Ewan McGregor.
