Interview Magazine, the publication started by Andy Warhol in 1969, has published its last issue. According to a report in The Guardian today, the magazine has had a tumultuous year, "including staff being locked out as part of rent dispute, a lawsuit brought by a former editorial director over back pay and the resignation of a fashion director accused of sexual misconduct."

Aside from Warhol's active involvement until his death in 1987, Interview was primarily noteworthy for its fantastic cover designs, the serious attention it paid to LGBTQ culture in art and fashion, and for giving rise to the writing career of the great Fran Lebowitz.
