England defender turns his hand to editing a new digital magazine.
England defender Rio Ferdinand recently launched his own online digital magazine, including a variety of exclusive interviews and features on a variety of topics of which fans of all the different arts can simply browse by and have a read.
#5 Magazine is totally free too and covers areas such as sport, music, film, personality and style. The launch issue is available now and includes interviews with 50 Cent, Cristiano Ronaldo, Mickey Rourke and Duffy.
Editor-at-large Ferdinand is delighted with the product and explains: “It's my number, but it’s everyone’s magazine.
“#5 Magazine is a chance to not only get closer to the football players and myself, but the people we interview.
“You’ll also see that we talk about different subject matters and don’t follow the same rules. With 50 Cent, we wanted to find out what he thought about President Obama. It was really interesting to hear his thoughts.
“I’ve met 50 Cent a few times and we were lucky that we were able to fit the interview in around his schedule. I didn’t want to talk about his upbringing though, or the number of times he’s been shot. Instead, we asked him about politics, success and his recent film Dead Man Running.”
With further issues in the pipeline, it certainly promises to be an interesting read and Ferdinand is already lining up more varied and interesting subjects.
“If I could interview anyone for the next issue, it would be Paul Scholes,” he revealed.
“Scholesy never does interviews and it would be great to sit him down and talk football.”You can read the first issue now, so click here now to check out Ronaldo and the freestylers showing off their tricks and a video on Rio’s hero – Diego Maradona.
