2. Looking at the front page, content pageand the double page I have concluded thatthe target audience of this magazine isyoung aged people who listen to dancemusic. I can tell this by looking at thelanguage which is used. The languageused helps the reader to identify the targetaudience. 3. The target audience for this magazine can beidentified as teenagers or young people of bothgender who look up at celebrities like Tulisa whothey want to idolise. The reader would want to findout as much information as they can about thembecause they would like to know how they gotfamous. This also allows them to find out secretsabout the celebrities they like. You can tell that thismagazine is aimed towards both genders becauseon the double page spread the reader see JLSwho are a very popular boy band. The youngfemale audience would want to buy this to find outas much information about them as possible. 4. By just looking at the front cover of thismagazine it is easy to see who the intendedaudience is. By looking at the man who is ina full body shot you can see that thismagazine is aimed at someone who has longhair and has a bread, they would also wearblack and usually play a guitar because this isthe norm for the audience of Kerrang.Looking at the cover lines the audience cansee that the magazine is telling the readerabout products of this genre of music. 5.
