I have a dirty little secret: My gossip loving fingers haven’t touched the glossy print of a tabloid magazine since I picked up my first iPhone. With a plethora of celebrity gossip-focused apps in the iTunes App Store, there is no reason to shell out $5 for a print magazine that becomes dated as fast as you can say “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
Granted, the mugs of Angelina Jolie and her multicultural tribe bear down on me as I check out at the grocery store every Sunday, but I happily resist the urge to indulge by knowing my iPhone can bring me the same guilty pleasure of stalking my favorite celebrities.
