As teen fodder through most of 1966, Sonny & Cher featured in Tiger Beat, Teen Screen and most prominetly in 16.

Somewhat the unconventional outsider who posed no threat because she was "married", Cher's modish beauty appealed to female fans who may not necessarily buy her records.

Via the pen of 16 maven Gloria Stavers, Cher - and later Sonny - featured monthly as agony aunt (and uncle) for the insecure and acne-ridden fans to whom image was just as important as music.
