The best gossip magazines are the top publications that give all the dirt, both real and rumored about our favorite celebrities. A favorite distraction for supermarket check-out lanes everywhere, these gossip rags love a good scoop, an awkward photo or a juicy rumor about the top actors, musicians, politicians and other celebrities.

While many celebrity gossip magazines consistently publish insane stories based on “sources” close to celebrities—National Enquirer, I’m looking at you—some of these gossip mags also consistently put out what could be considered solid stories. “People” magazine has been a leader in the field of entertainment for decades and is regarded as one of the white hats in the business.

On the other side of that coin, other rags like “In Touch” and “Life & Style” may opt more for dramatic headlines over quality journalism. In their defense, American loves drama—reality television is proof of that—and providing juicy details about the personal and private lives of our favorite celebrities does sell magazines.

But it’s not just the U.S. that is obsessed with celebrity gossip and gossip magazines. There are numerous regional magazines from all around the world that give the latest deets on the top celebrities. Which gossip magazines are your favorites? Vote for your picks below, add any not listed or even re-rank this list of the best gossip magazines!
