Answer

General interest publications, such as People magazine, are not considered academic sources.  As a rule, magazine articles with glossy photos and no references are not academic sources.  Information found on the Web may not be suitable for a research paper.  For tips on evaluating information on the Web, review the information on the following page: http://libraryguides.etown.edu/content.php?pid=287203&sid=2362876.
