Stuff Love is a satirical fan magazine showcasing a new breed of media darling. Representing the fallout from widespread industrialization, the stars of Stuff Love are born of consumer culture, new life forms mutated from orphaned thrift store objects and mass-produced "stuff." Inspired by popular teen idol publications like Tiger Beat, 16 and Bop, these mutant celebrities are elevated to heartthrob status with autographed pinups and suggested gossip columns. The presentation of these unexpected stars in the glossy pages of Stuff Love speaks to the modern consumer’s infatuation with material goods. The context of the teen magazine is at once innocent and obscene, referencing the questionable phenomenon of pop stars presented as sex symbols to an underage audience. This tension between naïveté and eroticism speaks to the complex desire/guilt relationship contemporary society has with stuff.
