If so, why? If not, why not? Curious to see what people think of these nowadays.

No, they're infantilising, or harmful.

No, but I did read Top Gear magazine when I was a teenager. Thought teen magazines were cringe, doubt it's different now.

As others have said, they're pretty cringeworthy... I'm an adult, but pretty sure teen me thought much the same, but really just means I geeked out on better stuff,

The answer is no. I am a matured adult and reading magazines for my age.

No, largely because I'm not a teen anymore Also because who reads print media anymore?

When I was that age I did read some things probably skewed towards those in that age group but they weren't exclusively for it - mostly stuff focused on video games or TCGs.

I remember getting some teen athletic magazines years ago which I enjoyed. No idea what it was called.

Never been into the general teen magazines, though.

Teen magazines which are writing about young celebrities are pointless in any case.
