BuzzFeed looked at all tabloid covers for the last year, using Jezebel’s Midweek Madness feature, to see how often certain words showed up. We counted the appearances of a variety of important words (we left out things like “the” and “her” and focused on some major nouns and verbs) to find out what showed up the most. The above is what a cover might look like (this one’s fake!) if it combined ten of the most common ones. And the top ten:
4. 8. Cheating
Cheating was mentioned slightly more often than divorce — 34 times.
11. 1. Baby
“Baby” came in first with 148 mentions, over twice as many as its closest competitor. Tabloids are clearly all about reproduction these days — and more than that, they’re actually fairly conservative. Things like babies, marriage, and weddings beat out sex, cheating, and divorce. Maybe tabloid readers (or at least their editors) secretly want everyone to live happily ever after.
