One of the Leading Magazines of Australia - OK! Magazine

103 5
The magazine tends to feature special interviews and personal experiences of celebrities which includes engagements and pregnancies.
In 2005, celebrity pregnancies which were covered were those of Peter and Jordan, Alex Curran and Steven Gerrard.
Stars like Liberty X singer, Andy Scott-Lee and Michelle Heaton announced their engagement with special deals with OK! magazine.
The magazine has a common policy of publishing only optimistic celebrity profiles, but in a 2007 interview with Britney Spears, Spears' actions were so erratic that OK! decided to break this rule.
Along with Britney, OK! also talked to her mother, Lynne Spears and her younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, on the subject of Jamie Lynn's pregnancy.
This was the best selling copy of 2007.
Just recently, in August 2008, Britney Spears did an interview with OK! at her residence and it was observed that Britney's old unpredictable behaviour was behind her, and she conversed during the interview that she is 'happy, healthy and eager for the future'.
The interview also had pictures which showed Britney and her children.
OK! is most well-known for its reporting of celebrity nuptials.
OK! is also one of the most liked magazines with details that talk about the most recent celebrity gossips.
Its largest scoops were Catherine Michael Douglas and Zeta-Jones, Jordan and Peter André, David and Victoria Beckham, Britney Spears and Kevin Federline and Ashley and Cheryl Cole.
Recently, OK! was honoured with £1,033,156 in a court case.
OK! had special rights to the wedding of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas, but its opponent Hello! magazine printed pictures as well, which led OK! to sue its competitor.
In October 2005, three superstar weddings toOK! place on the very same day-Jordan and Peter, Samia Ghadie and property developer Matthew Smith, and Kate Garraway and Derek Draper.
OK! covered them all over separate issues.
The biggest wedding of the three (which was of Jordan and Peter) was covered over two profuse issues.
The same occurred for the wedding of Ashley and Cheryl Cole and also for Christina Aguilera's wedding.
OK! also published an issue with photos of Eva Longoria's wedding to Tony Parker.
Jade Goody was a well-liked celebrity for the magazine from 2002-2009 with many interviews and photo shoots, including her fight with cancer shown often in 2008.
She holds the record for being on the cover for all the weeks throughout 2009 with subjects of her wedding, her christening and a compliment special, plus a special issue after her death and then again with her widow on the front cover.
Prior to Jade Goody's death in March 2009, OK! flashed controversy by issuing an 'Official Tribute Issue' with front-page slogans stating 'In Loving Memory' and '1981-2009', even as Goody was alive at the time.
Several months later in June 2009, OK! again caused indignation by running another tribute issue, this time for Michael Jackson exhibiting a front cover image which the magazine insiders claim was 'his lifeless body'; additional images inside showed scenes of his attempted recovery, with Jackson's mouth covered by an oxygen mask and impoverished to a hospital stretcher.
