Latin pop star Thalía, who already has made her mark in the music, fashion and television industries, now can add magazine publishing to her resume.

A three-issue monthly named Thalía was released by the singer yesterday (April 13) during appearances at New York's Grand Central Terminal and at a Kmart. The publication will run two more issues -- in May and June -- then continue based on consumer response, said Stuart Zakim, spokesman for publisher American Media.

The 120-page magazine will be distributed nationally and have an initial target circulation of about 100,000. It will be printed in Spanish, focusing on Thalía's main fan base, Hispanic women aged 18-35, who are largely unserved by print media, Zakim said.

The magazine's editorial content will include a mix of health, beauty, fashion and spiritual tips, celebrity interviews and inspirational stories. Thalía will serve as editorial director.

Thalía also unveiled this week a multi-year sponsorship deal with Hershey Foods Corporation.
