It’s so funny that Madonna is on the cover of Rolling Stone having been airbrushed into a wrinkle-free teen while complaining about ageism. So. Funny. More
Any article about Taylor Swift is bound to be full of quotes that make you tilt your head and squint in confusion, but since she’s recently become a huge style icon, I knew I could expect a few strange Taylorisms about fashion. I wasn’t disappointed. More
It’s always fun when Rolling Stone publishes a new interview with a big star, because it’s guaranteed that they’re going to say something at least mildly ridiculous. Today, it’s Katy Perry. More
Julia Louis-Dreyfuss is naked on the cover of Rolling Stone, and now we remember why she’s the funniest there is. More
Miley Cyrus continues her massive press tour to alienate the entire world today, with a just-dropped cover of Rolling Stone, upon which she is naked. She is also topless in almost all of the photos inside the magazine. Of course. The accompanying interview is replete with what has now become Cyrus’ rather particular brand of outrageous obliviousness, self-mythologizing and brazen ego. She’s like Lady Gaga smashed together with Kanye West with a sprinkle of twerking!
…Oh, and a shitload of name dropping. In fact, most of the interview is just Cyrus pointing out which famous people really admire her as an artist–and then quoting them. Let’s begin. More
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the accused Boston Marathon Bomber, was arraigned on July 10th, and plead not guilty to the 30 counts against him. This coincides with the July issue of Rolling Stone, which includes an in-depth profile of Tsarnaev and a controversial photo of him on the cover. More
Remember how Jon Hamm‘s allegedly gargantuan penis was allegedly distracting the whole Mad Men set so a staffer allegedly told him to wear some underwear (then reported the alleged incident to a major media outlet)? Well, he had something to say about it in his Rolling Stone interview this week. More
Life is full of surprises, guys! More
Jennifer Lawrence got her big break in moody meth drama Winter’s Bone, which features an intense squirrel-skinning scene. Rolling Stone asked the actress about the scene in her cover feature and 1) apparently it was real and 2) Lawrence has a few words for America’s nastiest rights organization. More
The fallout from Biebergate is pretty much over (phew!), but there’s one piece of it that still stands out in my mind.
Vanessa Grigoriadis, the reporter who interviewed Biebs for “Rolling Stone,” caught some heat for asking him questions about abortion in the first place. She graciously and succinctly replied to her detractors via Twitter, saying that “A 16 year old kid, to be 17 in a couple weeks, who has control over a large population should be asked all questions.” More
While the other girls on Jersey Shore are getting treated like shit by their boyfriends and tanning, JWoww appears to be trying to launch her newfound fame into an actual career. Her website, www.JWoww.com, is pretty good, she’s been interviewed … More
Katy Perry took to the stage on the “Today Show” this morning amidst piles of cotton candy to perform songs from her new album, and all I can think of when I see this photo is slapping her across her unoriginal face.
I have wanted to like Katy Perry, I really have. “I Kissed a Girl,” while vapid, was catchy. Perry herself is adorable, and somehow she landed Russell Brand. But every single thing she does serves to make her more and more annoying, and lately, when she’s just repeatedly revealing how untalented and unoriginal she is, I have to say that she has officially gone down in my book as a Pop Star Whose Fame Is Undeserved.
So, let’s talk about that interview in Rolling Stone, for starters. I kept waiting for her to say something interesting. But honestly, even Vanessa Grigoriadis, the reporter, seemed bored with her. The entire story hinged on the idea that Perry loves attention. Literally. More
“I don’t want a sock around it, that feels ridiculous. If we’re naked in the scene, then I’m naked.” — Alexander Skarsgard in Rolling Stone, on doing nude scenes for “True Blood.” “I guess it was good to break the … More
It’s nothing new to have naked people on the cover of Rolling Stone, their privates obscured by some measly piece of cloth or a strand of hair. But for some reason, this picture of Steven Moyer grabbing Anna Paquin’s boob … More
