during an AOL chatroom conversation, when I mentioned that I'd met a
particular celebrity recently, someone accused me of name-dropping. I
tried to blow it off, saying it was simply one of the wonderful
benefits of my job--but it was to no avail. I had been branded as
surely as YourMVP has been branded "porn."
instead of denying it, I have opted instead to embrace the
accusation--feel giddy for a minute--and admit something that almost
makes me feel ashamed: Being the Editor-in-Chief of an online men's
magazine definitely has its perks.
launching YourMVP in early September, and even before
that--during the planning stages in August and July--I have found
myself in some highly enviable positions. Not a week has gone by when
I've not been in touch with (no, sadly not THAT kind of
"touch") a Playboy Playmate, an internationally known
singing celebrity, or a professional wrestling star. Why do I feel
guilty about this? Because, readers, I'm no different than any of
you! I'm a regular guy, doing a job that I happen to dig, and I'm
getting to meet some incredibly friggin' cool people in doing it.
then there are the OTHER perks! We're attempting to expand our
presence and public awareness of our site off-line. In the past week, YourMVP
has had representatives at both the VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards and the
Los Angeles premiere of the Broadway smash "The Lion King."
so the bigwigs in New York City just stared at our webmaster Jim
Jarrell blankly when he said he was representing "YourMVP
Magazine, the hottest new men's online destination." I, however,
faired a bit better and was given the red-carpet treatment at the
black-tie Disney gala, which placed me next to celebrities such as
Camyrn Manheim, Jamie Foxx and Robert Guillome. (Give it up for
all will allow us to better target you, our audience. We're
searching high and low, on- and off-line, for subjects and
celebrities of interest to you. (If you have an idea, send it to us!)
In the process, we're unearthing some of the most unusual--and
exciting--people out there.
for YourMVP's upcoming exclusive interviews with "Psycho
Mike," an independent wrestling star who gives us the inside
scoop on what it's like to get your ass kicked by WWF superstars day
and night. Stay tuned as we get an update from Melanie Thornton, the
voice formerly behind international singing sensations La Bouche, as
she prepares her solo album. Don't go away, or you might miss out on
our big announcement surrounding Melissa Bigham and Teri Byrne, a
couple of former WCW "Nitro Girls"!
personal favorite, though, is our exclusive with Barbie
"Doll" Benson, a former Miss Nude Canada, Internet panty
auctioneer, and total-package. Take a sneak peak at
www.PantyAuction.com . . . or www.BarbieBenson.com. If you're lucky,
maybe you'll catch her nude cooking show! Better yet, find out where
you can meet
her this weekend.
be damned, I love bringing this content to you every week. Reviews,
wrestling stars, celebrities, naked chefs? Now that's entertainment,
folks, and I love it!
