Then add in something like this where we're reminded that there's no sense of ethics in reporting anymore.
It's all about trying to make money, not reporting the news.
One point I heard on the radio that sounded somewhat true is the fact that with print media currently on the decline, this is a ploy for attention. If there's any truth to that, then...it's working.
I think that's part of it. I seldom read the mag. So I would have to read the piece to determine if it's truly journalism.
How is this any different from his face being plastered across the front page of every newspaper across the continent, not to mention the newstations?
This isn't glamourizing anything, IMO. He's not sitting on a throne, wearing shutter sunglasses, surrounded by beautiful women, throwing money in the air, drinking champagne, with #YOLO #SWAG everywhere on the cover. It's a picture...of him.
Of course its glorifying it. Because this is an "entertainment" magazine that's usually using celebrities for their covers. Rolling Stones is known for covering pop culture and music. If you can read, there's even a mention of Jay-Z on the left side.
Then there's the text on the bottom: "How a popular promising student blah blah became a monster" Like aww.. are we supposed to feel sorry for him now? lol. Get that sympathy crap outta here.
I do feel that there is truth to Rolling Stones doing it for attention so they would feel relevant again.
