Rolling Stone magazine is a pop culture icon in itself, with music and entertainment legends regularly appearing on its cover. These tell-all interviews sit alongside harder-hitting political and human interest stories: Rolling Stone is just as likely to cover police shootings and the battle against ISIS as it is to predict the next round of Grammy winners.
Unafraid of controversial editorial choices – they put Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover in 2013 – the Rolling Stone team is also known for the depth and energy of their reporting, often giving 10 or more pages to a single story. Balanced by album reviews, hot lists that chart upcoming artists, and salutes to the greatest entertainers of all time, Rolling Stone readers are kept informed of both critical and pop culture stories.
