Celebrity Album Review Feature
December 2001
As the music editor at Wired, I wanted to try something different in the reviews section of our December issue. This issue is usually the gift-buying guide, so I wanted to spice up the reviews page with something readers would really pay attention to. We decided on having celebrities review CDs, which seemed easy enough at the time. Executing it, however, was a whole different story; if you think writers are married to their work, try editing reviews by celebrities who are used to getting their way on everything! In the end, it turned out really well and we featured the likes of Gillian Andersen and the Neptunes in this first-ever Wired Celebrity Album Review offering.
