Interview is an American magazine which has the nickname "The Crystal Ball of Pop". It was founded in late 1969 by artist Andy Warhol. The magazine features intimate conversations between some of the world's biggest celebrities, artists, musicians, and creative thinkers. Interviews are usually unedited or edited in the eccentric fashion of Warhol's books and The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again.

History

Andy Warhol

In the early days, complimentary copies of Interview were often given away to the "in-crowd"; this was the start of the magazine's circulation, which hovers around 230,000. Toward the end of his life, as Warhol withdrew from everyday oversight of his magazine, a more conventional editorial style was introduced under editor Bob Colacello). However, Warhol continued to act as ambassador for the magazine, distributing issues in the street to passersby and creating ad hoc signing events on the streets of Manhattan, New York City.

Brant Publications

The magazine's format has remained consistent at 60% features and 40% glossy advertising. It has been published by Brant Publications, Inc since shortly after Warhol's death in 1987. It was helmed for 18 years by Ingrid Sischy, until she and Peter Brant's ex-wife Sandra became lovers and left the magazine, selling Ms. Brant's half-ownership stake in the parent company Brant Publications.[1] For a year and a half the magazine was in flux, edited by Christopher Bollen.[2]

Present day

Interview "relaunched" under Co-Editorial Directors Fabien Baron and Glenn O'Brien in September 2008, with an iconic cover featuring Kate Moss. Stephen Mooallem and Christopher Bollen serve as the working editor-in-chief and editor-at-large, respectively. The publication's content can be found online and via an app, Other Edition, available on iTunes.

In other media

The magazine is featured in The CW's television series The Carrie Diaries, a prequel to HBO's Sex and the City. The protagonist, played by actress AnnaSophia Robb, vicariously explores New York City through the glamorous fashion editor of Interview, played by Freema Agyeman.
