With new ownership. Tiger Beat took on a whole new direction. While John Stamos, Chris Atkins, Matt Dillon, Rob Lowe and Duran Duran were filling the pages, the covers of Tiger Beat were reserved for female models for the middle part of the decade, with an attempt to create a fashion and advice magazine like "Seventeen." The publication changed ownership again, and thankfully, returned to its original format, scoping the rise of Kirk Cameron, Michael J Fox, the "Facts of Life" girls and George Michael. Interestingly, The Monkees made a huge come-back in the 80s, and made a return to the covers for a long stretch towards the end of the decade.
