Well, I guess it was bound to happen. On Friday, March 11th, Rolling Stone will release its March cover with reality star Nicole Polizzi, more commonly known as “Snooki.” If you don’t already know, Snooki is part of MTV’s cast of Jersey Shore, a show thats about partying, eating, and “guidos.” When Rolling Stone released the cover, artists such as Ne-Yo were not impressed. he posted on Twitter account, “No disrespect to Snooki, I don’t know her, but damn Rolling Stone?”
The magazine, which focuses mainly on on music, took a different approach by having a reality star on the front cover. Dedicated readers may or may not enjoy this month’s cover. However, putting the hit reality star on the cover can draw in new readers to the magazine.
Another star that was upset with the cover was hit artist Pink. She also posted on her Facebook status, “ “Dear Rolling Stone, Really?”
Snooki herself was surprised she was asked to pose on the cover, wear she is wearing cowboys boots and twirling a lasso.
My guess: Jersey Shore viewers are going to love it. Rolling Stone readers: not so much.
