If you want to just read for fun or to kill some time, then US is for you. I enjoy it because I don't have to concentrate. It's mostly superficial 'news' about people who are famous or rich. It focuses somewhat on fashion and what superstars are wearing or not wearing. My favorite feature in each issue is "Who Wore It Best?" This shows 3 or more pictures of famous people wearing the same outfit or item. A panel of judges has voted and it gives you the outcome in percentage. Like I said, pretty mindless topic but entertaining none the less. In all fairness it has a News section too but it's entertainment to me versus information I need to know. An example of news in US would be who caused the biggest, nearly nude scandal on stage since last issue. I read this magazine for fun and if I happen to find something in it I can learn from, well, that will be ok. For a lot of fun and maybe a useful tidbit, read US.
