Rolling Stone cover


Sinead O’Connor is the latest person to speak out about her unhappiness that Kim Kardashian featured on this month’s cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

As we previously reported, a lot of people were deeply disappointed that the legendary magazine chose to give their most iconic and coveted spot to the reality TV star.

But it would appear that Ms O’Connor is the most displeased of the bunch.

Taking to Facebook once again, the Irish singer asked, “What is this c*** doing on the cover of Rolling Stone?”

“Music has officially died,” she stated.

Similarly to the cover itself, Sinead’s post has garnered mixed reviews. While many seem to agree with her that Rolling Stone have let themselves and their fans down by putting Kimmy K on the cover, others don’t find it that surprising and think that the magazine regularly do features on people like her.

One Facebook user wrote, “It’s a pop magazine, I love you Sinead but Rolling Stone does not define good music or taste. Don’t give them so much credit. Every now and then they do something good, but in general, it’s always been what’s popular.”



As we have all seen by now, Kim Kardashian was the latest celeb to grace the cover of the iconic Rolling Stone magazine.

But, as with just about everything Kimmy K does, it has come under huge scrutiny.

Not just because the cover is largely taken up by a shot of her prominent boobs (after all Rolling Stone has seen many of the world’s most influential people getting undressed for the prolific cover) but because she is on it at all. 

As the magazine has profiled everyone from Pope Francis, to Barack Obama and Meryl Streep, fans of the publication seem truly offended that Kim has been allowed to share the honour.

Other readers seemed baffled by the stylist's choice of costume for Kim:

But why shouldn’t the world’s most famous woman be entitled to share her story with a magazine of this calibre – and to wear what she wants while doing so?

After all, she has proved she is a savvy businesswoman, a loving mother, and for better or worse, has managed to hold firm her place in the public eye for nearly a decade. The 34-year-old has even just given a talk organized by the prestigious Commonwealth Club of California, an accolade previously awarded to Franklin D Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr.

Throughout the talk Kim referred to the fact that she has taken control of her image in the media and any objectifying that occurs is a result of the way she objectifies herself and is on her own terms.  As Kim said in her Rolling Stone interview, “I believe that I am so much smarter than I’m portrayed.”
