Thought of the Day- Rolling Stone Cover

I've never been big on reading the Rolling Stone, but have always viewed it as a very edgy rock and roll magazine. The Rolling Stone magazine has had some very influential people on the cover such as The Beatles, Janis Joplin, Michael Jackson, and my favourite photographs of John Lennon and Yoko Ono by Annie Leibovitz.


The latest issue features Snooki from the Jersey Shore. It's so crazy to me to see how the entertainment industry has changed over the years. Fame seems to be more important and more celebrated than artists with talent. The outcome is those who have no talent can have the same opportunities as others that have worked their whole lives for the same thing. It seems like anyone famous can be a fashion designer or author. Taking something from your closet, changing the color and making the hem shorter is not designing. Writing a book with tips like "STOP DRINKING IF YOU VOMIT -If you puke it up, don’t put more in" does not make you an author.

And yes, call me a hypocrite because I watch the Jersey Shore, but that doesn't mean I want to be them. Watching Jersey Shore is like watching people who dress up their dogs in different outfits everyday, give them manicures, diamond collars, and leave their life savings to them. I'm simultaneously repulsed yet attracted.
