Poll: Do Celebrities Make Good Magazine Editors?

Celebrities are taking the helm as section editors at several magazines. But is this really a good idea?



Published:

As if their their movie star salaries weren't enough, celebrities are now acting as guest editors, columnists, and bloggers. From Gwyneth Paltrow's goop blog to Rachel Bilson writing an advice column for InStyle magazine (and acting as the "Style Director" at Sunglass Hut) celebrities aren't just the subject matter of beauty mags and blogs, they're actively producing the content.

The latest celeb to enter the online content world is Courteney Cox, who has started doling out beauty tips for Jane Pratt's website, xojane.com (though just one, so far). Even Jon Favreau has signed on to guest edit the Comic-Con edition of The Hollywood Reporter (where, coincidentally, he will be premiering his film Cowboys and Aliens).

What do you think of this trend? Do celebrities make good magazine editors and content writers, or should they just stick with what they know best?
