“Rolling Stone” To Readers: Buy This Magazine Or We’ll Have To Figure Out More Ways To Pander To Non-Music Fans While Subtly Making Fun Of Our Cover Subjects

    Oh, sad, RS! If it’s not another “Best Whatever Ever” issue or a “Jann Panders to the Boomers” issue, it’s a completely wrong cover story like this. Or Zac Efron.

    Ugh @ the word choice under The Roots.

    Everyone’s mad a Vanity Fair, meanwhile there’s a slumber party going on at Rolling Stone…

    Ha! From the comments at the RS page:

    LOVE THE COVER! Hate that someone looks trashy. It really affects the ora of the cover. I wish you could have just done Lauren, Lo and Whitney

    The ‘ora, the ‘ora!

    @NickEddy: “Kiss my ora, Dora…It’s real Angora…”

    their ‘four trampy girls in their underwear matched with a caption about escort services’ joke (if it is a joke) annoys me. much like how i’m annoyed by pictures of kristen bell on the cover of cosmo, matched with a caption for an article called ‘do your boobs look weird?’

    If I hadn’t stopped caring about RS a decade ago, this sure would have done the trick.

    is this sort of like the desperate measures of insightfully pointing out to the world for the first time ever that the Doors really suck?

    That was a doozy.

    I love the combination of the $25K escorts headline, “Hillary’s Bitter Endgame” and the Hills ladies in their underwear. Desperation all around!

    Reminds me so much of when the Spice Girls were on RS’s cover, which was the official moment in my youth in which I wrote off RS. No thanks for the memories, Jann!
