Rolling Stone Page 1
We hate to throw shade, Miley, but you’re just so generous. In the latest edition of Miley Cyrus wreaking havoc on our brain cells, the twerk queen, covers Rolling Stone and proceeds to address all of the pressing issues: the VMAS, Robin Thicke, her “homie,” Kanye West, Justin Bieber, and her life as a modern day Rapunzel (with a mohawk, of course). And in case it isn’t a total given, Cyrus is also topless, with her tongue out. Don’t worry, Liam, she’s doing just fine!
Ever since Port magazine deemed that the “New Golden Age” of magazines is at the helm of six men, it raised many questions about the gender gap in the publishing world and whether or not women’s magazines engage serious journalism.
At this point, it’s pretty safe to say that any cover story on Rihanna will touch heavily on another, less savory figure: Chris Brown, her 2009 domestic assailant and now on-again boyfriend. The pop star was photographed for the February 14 issue of Rolling Stone by that other gleaming example of morality, Terry Richardson, and inside the glossy she opens up about making mistakes, coping with judgment, and what happens if Brown “f*cks up again.”
Rolling Stone‘s April cover features none other than actress of the moment Jennifer Lawrence. She gives off a girl-next-door vibe in a white burnout tank, jeans, and…no bra?
The latest feather in the cap of the busiest week (month?) of Lady Gaga‘s life is perhaps the most relevant one: the pop superstar is on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone.
In a year when the best advice anyone could give about anything was “Do the best you can with less,” fashion magazines — the smart ones, anyway — seemed to respond in kind. White space, nudity, and faces (and bodies) rather than full-on fashion dominated the best magazine covers of 2010, and we’ve assembled a group of 15 books we think did it best.
After ogling Lady Gaga‘s ethereal Vanity Fair September cover, we couldn’t help but scour the cover archives for some of nudity’s most celebrated moments — forever immortal on the front pages of fashion’s major publications.
This is getting pretty tiresome, but it’s a slow news day so we’ll bite. Katy Perry‘s photo on the cover of Rolling Stone has quite evidently been Photoshopped to death and back, and we want to know why.
Apparently even Terry Richardson can’t get enough of The Jersey Shore cast.
With all the furor and controversy surrounding Michael Hastings‘ profile of General Stanley McChrystal in Rolling Stone, we never thought we’d find an angle that would fall under Styleite’s, um, area of expertise. But you know what they say: behind every good journalist, there’s a family member who works in fashion.
