Nura Hassan 10 chestnuts How effective are the 2 articles on meeting the purpose And satisfying the audience? Looking at the studied articles "Lohan behold" by 'sugar' magazine featuring Lindsay Lohan and "I don't need to take care of a man to be happy" by 'cosmopolitan' featuring Jennifer Lopez we see the main purpose of the 2 articles are to sell the celebrities lives, and meeting the purpose by entertaining their audience. The title in 'sugar';"Lohan behold" is automatically promotes herself , it is in a rough, somewhat untamed font and cuts through the picture this may suggest that this is a reflection of Lohan being wild, untamed and has no control because she is new to the celebrity world.
