• My magazine is a Mainstream music magazine that’s
aimed at teenagers and some middle aged people.
Mainstream music includes R&B, Pop, Hip Hop etc.
• In this presentation I will discuss how I have represented
different social groups in my magazine.
Chloe is represented as a big mainstream R&B star (Cassie), the facial
expressions on the photos I used shows a bit of attitude but also
approachable. She seems rich and young.
Eye makeup and lipstick is used to give her a touch of glamour.
The costume chosen is a black crop top helps bring out the genre she’s
representing. I based this on the R&B star Tulisa. Black also seems
The crop top adds to the sex appeal for the model.
In summery Chloe is represented as a glamorous, modern R&B star with
a bit of an attitude. Makeup, clothing and facial expressions are used to
bring about this effect.
• I was able to build on the
initial representation of her on
the front cover by using
language in the double page
• The language used was
informal and I made her
sound very energetic and
poppy by using explanation
marks and sentences that
showed excitement. e.g. “Hell
• This will make her seem more
approachable and not too
• Kat represents a typical girl next door
that has made it to the top
(Claire), she is wearing a pink top
which represents the pop genre that
she is a part of. The makeup is not
excessive for a 18 year old girl and
she facial expression is smiley and
friendly, which shows her as a
youthful poppy girl that is not very
• Troy is represented as a typical
youth rapper. The facial expression
is intense and serious. The body
language shows he’s confident. He
also represents the black ethnic
group, the hair and clothing helps
bring out this. The DUFFER hoodie
used to show him in fashion or
what he would call “swag”.
• Phil is represented as a typical
teenager who produces songs.
The clothing chosen is a urban
and in with the times. Most 18
year boys wear snapbacks
these days, therefor he follows
the trend. The lack of facial
expression also adds to the
serious effect of the character.
Females - Females are not over sexualised in
my magazine as all of the females featured
wear fairly modest clothing, but not clothing
that will take away from their sex appeal.
E.g. Chloe on my double page
Males - Males are represented popular but not
over the top, for example rapper and producer
troy is not wearing excessive bling, Phil
doesn’t have too many tattoos.
Ethnic Groups – inTune is multicultural and
therefore represents many different groups
Classes – Both rich and fairly middle class are
represented in my magazine, Cassie is rich
and very popular while Claire is middle class
• In the main
industry is shown in
a positive light, for
act, Beyonce being
like a mentor etc.
This is different to
where the industry
• My magazine is a mainstream
magazine like the billboard magazine
and therefore has a young RnB
singer on the cover. The facial
expressions, clothing represents this
genre as more mature that for
example a pure pop magazine but not
as hard-core as a rock magazine.
• My magazine for example wouldn’t
have rock singers who are usually
middle aged and is very distinct in
their clothing, this is a social group
my magazine wouldn’t represent.
• The housestyle, fonts and layout also
affects how the genre is
represented, for example on
mainstream music maagazines the
layout is fairly clean and non cluttered
in comparison to a rock magazine.
