Andy Warhol's Interview Magazine Has Folded

Founded by Warhol, Village Voice co-founder John Wilcock, and poet/photographer Gerard Malanga in 1969, the fame-focused monthly was best known for its intimate celebrity-on-celebrity interviews accompanied by original portrait photography. Former staffers, like online editor Trey Taylor, broke the news on Twitter this morning and editor Ezra Marcus told CNN Money that the publication "folding both web and print effective immediately" after an all-hands meeting where staffers were informed that the company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

The magazine was owned by Peter Brant, a billionaire art collector, who acquired the magazine in 1989. In a 2016 Q & Andy, Interview reiterated its support for Mariah Carey-the magazine had called her "the world's biggest diva" in a 2007 cover story.

Former creative director Karl Templer, who also resigned in April, was accused by three women of "overstepping the professional line,"in a report from the Boston Globe".

While Interview's history has been tarnished in recent years as a result of these alleged misdeeds, the publication had been celebrated for its cutting edge approach, including a willingness to celebrate queer artists and LGBT allies by placing them on the cover. "Baron claims the magazine owes him "over $500,000 from invoices between 2015 and 2018" and owes Poiblanc "$66,000 as a stylist".

Truman Capote was one of Interview's earliest contributors, and Warhol also conducted many interviews. This is the fourth in a series of lawsuits Brant is facing: Former associate publisher Jane Katz also claims Interview fired her unjustly and owes her unpaid wages of $230,000. He and his then-wife Sandra bought Interview shortly after Warhol's death in 1987.

"Interruptions were allowed and often could take conversations in different directions", she said in a 2004 interview to promote a book about the magazine's early years. Over the years, it featured conversational interviews with celebrities like Liza Minelli and Grace Jones and other features, including Warhol's trademark "15 Questions" interview.

"I always thought it should be for new people", Warhol said of Interview in 1977", but I guess there aren't enough new people to buy it".
