Naked Eye Magazine was a Canadian entertainment and lifestyle publication distributed by Brand U Media on a quarterly basis and then biannual basis.[1]


Naked Eye magazine's publicly stated primary mandate was to "celebrate Canadian culture by covering national talent with a global perspective". The magazine focused on both Canadian and international celebrities and trends.[2]

The magazine originally launched in Montreal, Quebec, under XMMA promoter and publisher (and then editor) Burton Rice in 1999 but folded in under a year. It was relaunched as a quarterly in 2007.

Previously featured celebrities[edit]

Naked Eye was unique in that it only featured Canadian celebrities on its cover. [3]

Originally cover subjects were limited to actors and musicians, though towards the last issues this expanded to subjects including an ultimate fighter and a latex fetish model.
