It must have been a slow news day yesterday, because the whole world stopped for Justin Bieber’s thoughts on abortion. While driving around with a “Rolling Stone” reporter in Atlanta, sans handlers, the 16-year-old virgin told writer Vanessa Grigoriadis he believes abortion is “killing a baby” and even in the case of a pregnancy that results from rape, “everything happens for a reason.” Minds were blown. Rome fell. S**t got real.
Well, it turns out that was not Bieber‘s full quote. Keep reading »
Justin Bieber: I really don’t believe in abortion. It’s, like, killing a baby?
Rolling Stone: How about in cases of rape?)
JB: Um. Well, I think that’s really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I guess I haven’t been in that position, so I wouldn’t be able to judge that.
Oof. “Everything happens for a reason”? Really? I may not care about your opinions on abortion, but the world’s population of 11-year-old girls sure does. Isn’t this heavy stuff for the “Hannah Montana” crowd?
After the jump, Justin also sounded off to Rolling Stone about the American vs. Canadian health care systems. Keep reading »
When I was a young teen, Britney Spears trotted onto the scene in her braids, schoolgirl skirt and red lipstick, posing for Rolling Stone while sucking lollipops and hugging stuffed animals. At the time, her look was described as “kinderwhore.” Over a decade later, Britney’s most barely-legal moments look tame in comparison to the pop tarts who’ve followed her. Lady Gaga‘s pantless get-ups. Katy Perry‘s latex dress and bra that shoots whipped cream. Miley Cyrus pole-dancing on an ice cream cart. Ke$ha‘s entire existence. A hipster blog called Hipster Runoff has coined a new name for it and none other than Rolling Stone has anointed it a genre (albeit a “fake genre”) in the pages of their magazine. Ladies and gentlemen, we are now riding the “slutwave.” Keep reading »
In honor of the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s death, Rolling Stone has released his final interview, which took place just a few days before he was murdered on December 8, 1980. The interviewer, Jonathan Cott, never transcribed the tapes in the wake of John Lennon’s murder, and they remained in his closet for 30 years, until now. After the jump, some of the best quotes from John Lennon’s final interview—haunting, prolific, and inspiring. Keep reading »
I suppose that after surviving so many near-death experiences, Ozzy Osbourne might not be the worst choice to be a health/diet/life advice columnist. But he certainly can’t be the best choice, either. Given the fact that he’s barely coherent in speaking, perhaps writing is a good route? He’ll be doing just that for Rolling Stone magazine after already getting a deal with the U.K.’s Sunday Times. In his first column, Ozzy told a vertigo sufferer to “go to bed, drink only water, then get up and walk around in circles for a bit. If you’re still dizzy, let me know.” He also added, “I thought I had vertigo… I went to the doctor, and he said, ‘Mr. Osbourne, the problem—as far as I can tell—is simply that you’re very, very drunk.” Yeah, it’s going to be frickin awesome.

In celebration of Ozzy’s new venture, we took a look back at some of the other hilarious celebrity advice columnists after the jump. Keep reading »

How gay is Kurt on “Glee”? He’s so gay that in this dive bar fantasy shot from Rolling Stone he’s surrounded by a bunch of luscious leather daddies. That’s how gay. [Rolling Stone Keep reading »
“Mad Men”‘s Jon Hamm is on the cover of Rolling Stone with three more hot women than his character deserves: January Jones in regal gold, Elisabeth Moss in body-hugging dusty rose, and Christina Hendricks in a little red, five-alarm-fire of a dress. I love how this cover is demure by Rolling Stone standards but it sells S-E-X better than a dozen Jessica Simpsons.
Also, can we talk about the rack on Elisabeth? Girl, where’ve you been hiding those things?! [Rolling Stone] Keep reading »
