Living on the edge, that Miley is. The belle of the ball decided to commemorate the occasion of landing her first Rolling Stone cover by inking the words “Rolling Stone” on the soles of her feet. That way everyone could see it? OK, that shit had to hurt. I’m just not getting why she’d do this. Doesn’t she know that with aprroximately three pedis and that tat is a goner?

On the VMAs: “I wasn’t trying to be sexy. If I was trying to be sexy, I could have been sexy. I can dance a lot better than I was dancing. People are like, ‘Miley thinks she’s a black girl, but she’s got the flattest ass ever.’ I’m like, I’m 108 pounds! I know! Now people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I’ll probably never do that shit again.”
On the allegations that she uses black people as props: “I don’t keep my producers or dancers around ’cause it makes me look cool. Those aren’t my ‘accessories.’ They’re my homies. I’m from one of the wealthiest counties in America. I know what I am. But I also know what I like to listen to. Look at any 20-year-old white girl right now – that’s what they’re listening to at the club. It’s 2013. The gays are getting married, we’re all collaborating. I would never think about the color of my dancers, like, ‘Ooh, that might be controversial.’ What do you mean? Times are changing. I think there’s a generation or two left, and then it’s gonna be a whole new world.”
On Justin Bieber: “He’s trying really hard. People don’t take him seriously, but he really can play the drums, he really can play guitar, he really can sing. I just don’t want to see him fuck that up, to where people think he’s Vanilla Ice. I tell him that. Like, ‘You don’t want to become a joke. When you go out, don’t start shit. Don’t come in shirtless.’ But the thing is, I think boys are, like, seven years behind. So in his head, he’s really, like, 12.”
Earlier today I posted Rolling Stone‘s cover of Boston bomber Jahar Tsarnaev. It has social media and local government up in arms all day and now this stern letter to Jann Wenner, Rolling Stone‘s founder (and my former boss) from Boston Mayor Tom Menino. And this response, in general, from Rolling Stone: “Our hearts go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and our thoughts are always with them and their families. The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone’s long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day. The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens.” (via Huffington Post)
In an excerpt from the recent interview with Johnny Depp in Rolling Stone promoting the actor’s role as Tonto in the new Lone Ranger movie, we came across this sad and disturbing paragraph which perhaps explains why Depp is always wearing eyeglasses of some kind: “His glasses are prescription, and he needs them badly, though they don’t do anything for his left eye. Since birth, he’s been ‘basically blind as a bat’ in that one, in a way that’s impossible to correct. ‘Everything is just very, very blurry,’ he says. ‘I’ve never had proper vision.’ The right eye is simply nearsighted (and lately, far-sighted). So whenever he’s acting – unless he’s lucky enough to be in a scene where his character wears sunglasses – Depp can see only a few inches away from his face.” (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
“Pop’s golden child” has a smoke on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, and it’s funny that seeing someone smoking is SO SHOCKING. But it is. I gasped. What do you think? Hot cover? Or is he skeeving you out a little bit? (via MsDramaTV)
Chris Skura followed up and told us that the band came first (1962), five years before the magazine (1967). But that both were named after the song “Rollin’ Stone,” written and recorded by Muddy Waters in 1950.
So where does that leave Bob Dylan’s song “Like a Rolling Stone” that came out in 1965, three years after the band and two years before the magazine? Well, Jann Wenner – founder of Rolling Stone – has reportedly said that he named the magazine after the propular expression “a rolling stone gathers no moss,” and perhaps Dylan had the same expression in his head when writing his breakout hit. Interestingly, the magazine at one point named Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” and ”Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones as the two top rock songs of all time.
And, finally, a note from Wikipedia: The television show MythBusters, over the course of six months, confirmed that a rolling stone does not grow moss.
In the latest issue, the EDM superstar goes on a blistering rant, slamming everyone from David Guetta to Skrillex to Madonna. ”David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks – like, ‘Here’s one with Akon, check it out!’,” he says. “Even Skrillex [a friend of his] isn’t doing anything too technical. He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he’s just playing his shit… People are, thank God, smartening up about who does what – but there’s still button-pushers getting paid half a million. And not to say I’m not a button-pusher. I’m just pushing a lot more buttons.” He then goes on to address his beef with her Madgesty, Madonna, after her appearance at the Ultra Music Festival in March, where she asked the audience, “How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?” – a barely coded reference to Ecstasy. “You want to be ‘hip’ and ‘cool’ and ‘funky grandma’?,” says Deadmau5. “Fine. It’s not my place to say you’re irrelevant. If you’re gonna come into my world, at least do it with a little more dignity. I understand she has millions more fans, and is way more successful than I’ll ever be. But it’s like talking about slavery at a fucking blues concert. It’s inappropriate.”
No earth-shattering spoilers here. Tyrion and his whore have a moment, Ser Jorah seems to be macking on Daenerys, Arya ominously declares “Anyone can be killed,” while Cersei Lannister rightly observes “The more people you love, the weaker you are.” Still very exciting. Oh, and see the cast out of their Westeros drag in the lastest issue of Rolling Stone (below).
