The new Rolling Stone

WTF? Hot, Ready, & Legal? Just when I think RS can't suck any more, they stop, take a breath, and put more in their mouth. Remember music anyone?

The magazine is run by middle-aged men in the midst of a mid-life crisis. "Forget about music, what barely-legal, half-naked girl can we put on the cover?"

What's really sad is I used to visit their message boards and I met some really cool people there. Then they closed them down two months ago claiming they were going to improve them, but they are STILL down. They probably got sick of so many of us complaining on the message boards about how much the magazine sucks now.

Oops. I quoted myself. I meant to edit my post and add that other comment. I have to stop visiting Interference late at night.

They are nothing but ghosts of their former selves IMO.

Ya know, I don't think Lindsay Lohan is all that cute. I'd much rather appreciate a Scarlett Johansson cover

I remember RS in its hey day when it was
only 50 cents, and printed on real newspaper stock.
That mag has sucked for years.
Only time I pick it up is when U2 are on the cover too.

That article is actually kind of interesting in regards to celebritydumb and such things. (at least seemed that way when I was skimming it to see if there were more pictures.. I mean.. I read it all)

Although I will admit I don't tend to see anything much about music in it.

I let my subscription lapse 5 or 6 yrs ago after more than a dozen years as a subscriber and have by no means regretted that decision.
Without reading the Lindsay Lohan article, I'm sure there'll be some point where she says something along the lines of how "its gross that these old men think of me in sexual terms" yet she poses for a cover like this with the caption "Hot, Ready and Legal"...just like Alicia Silverstone complained about perverted men in a magazine where she was on the cover in ruffly pink panties years ago.
I'm sure Hilary Duff and all her (musical) talents will be adorning a cover in the coming months.

The word 'legal' is really quite disturbing for a magazine of such standing.

I don't get Lindsay Lohan. If I was a 45 year old man with a boob fetish, then maybe I would.

As a lifetime lover of RS, I don't have a problem with the latest cover. This is their Hot List issue, not their Hot Music List issue. Like any publication, they have to stoop in the Internet age to sell more copies, and as Lindsay Lohan is mega-popular, I could care less - the music industry coverage and political exposes are just as good, no matter who is on the cover. RS isn't just about Music, it has become about all aspects of the entertainment industry. Hell, I don't even like some of the musicians (when they feature them) they put on the cover -- but the mag, in my opinion is just as good - even if this is a special "Hot" issue.
