    Am I alone in thinking U magazine is utterly terrible?
    I buy it most months purely for the fashion pages, but it gives me a laugh to look at the appalling standard of journalism in the rest of the magazine....their 'celeb interviews' are just quotes that have been stolen from other magazines, and their letters pages (I have it on good authority) comprised mostly of made-up letters.

    What say everyone else?

    As I said, I only buy it for the fashion pages, it's handy to know what's in the shops without having to traipse around and look! :)

    Maybe you should write in and complain for making you buy it.

    Its fashion pages are fairly lacklustre in comparison to British Vogue and Elle. If I were to read a fashion magazine, it would be either or both of them.

    ha nothing is worse than nuts for men it is tripe - it had a thing about the sony psp and reviewed in how it would affect your life under the headings: Lager, Birds, Football, Curry
    no joking it used those headings!
    There was also about 100 pictures of english girls called "Charlene" or "Lindsey" modelling football jerseys or short.
    Its such an english lout magazine

    I've come to the conclusion that all English language fashion magazines suck - they assume their readers are all brain dead gimps. French, Italian and German ones are slightly less irritating and have nicer clothes.
