Girlfriend Australia Spring 2019

Girlfriend is Australia's best teen girls magazine. It is independent, smart, a little bit naughty and pretty damn cool. It is familiar, comfortable and trusted like a good friend but it also likes to shock you with its honesty, surprise you with its innovation, engage you with its quality and impress you with its creativity. Girlfriend is confident, fun, loud, and pretty. She's the leader, the trouble-maker, she tells it like it is, she's the one that can make anything happen. She's the kind of girl that everyone teenager wants to be.

I’m about to make myself sound really old, but I have a confession to make... I am totally obsessed with the Spice Girls. *cue the blank stares from those of you born after 2001* The British girl band dominated my teen years with their songs about girl power – and I loved everything from their platform heels to their colour-coordinated outfits. So needless to say I lost my mind when they announced they were re-forming to tour the UK for the first time in decades. It was allllllmost as good as if I’d heard 1D were ending their hiatus (I haven’t given up hope!). So just after we sent the winter issue of GF to print, I jetted off with my sister Beth to see them perform in Scotland. And lemme tell you, it DID.…

CELEB ZONE One of the coolest things about working for GF is getting to meet some of the biggest names in the music industry. Dep Ed Emma was lucky enough to travel to the Gold Coast to hang out with the Why Don’t We boys and has been raving about them ever since (check out her exclusive interview on page 12). Back in Sydney, pop superstar Charli XCX was in town and we’re happy to confirm that she’s an absolute kween. Head to page 108 to read our interview, where Charli spills the tea on new music and shares the best advice she’d give her 17-year-old self. BEAUTY BOSS Here at GF, we could all pretty much talk about beauty all day long. But what’s even better is when we get to do…

THE BAND WE STAN Australia has 5SOS, South Korea has BTS and the UK had One Direction (we’re still hopeful for a reunion!). But in America, no boy band has inspired the same level of super-standom since NSYNC back in the early ’00s. Well, until now! A force of global domination has arrived and they’re called Why Don’t We. Even if you don’t know WDW by name (yet!) we’re willing to bet you’ve heard their chart-topping hits, like ‘I Don’t Belong In This Club’. It’s time to get to know the five talented boys behind the tunes. Why Don’t We have all the makings of the kind of megaband that sells out massive stadiums. There’s the vocal chops, the catchy choruses, the perfectly choreographed dance routines and the swoon-worthy style. Oh yeah,…

ZACH HERRON What’s the best thing about working, travelling and living with your friends? It’s fun because we’re all just goons! If I was doing it by myself, I would have the hardest time because first of all, we’re away from our families. It’s just so cool to have four other guys who are experiencing the same thing and afterwards, just watching a movie together. And when we get off stage, it’s like, “Yo, did you see that?” because we’ve all just experienced the same thing. What’s the hardest part of the job? Having to be energised, even when you’re not. Because sometimes we’re working so hard and at the end of the day it’s hard to be ‘on’ and be super nice, but that’s our job. But obviously, we’re still so thankful for…
