This week Rolling Stone magazine finally lived like a rock star, albeit an aging one. The seminal rock music magazine has long been tame by comparision to the celebrities it portrays, but this week the publication went on a non stop bender that rivaled any heavy metal comeback rocker on the block.
First the magazine spent a whole day in a heroin den with Pete Doherty who generousy offered smack and ecstasy (although the magazine noted he was stingy on the crack). Then the rag got into a very public fight with blast-from-the-past celebrity Kirstie Alley. The gloves-off battle of word rivaled the brawls of longtime rock star bandmates like Slash and Axl. And now it’s been reported, the magazine will partner with MTV to host an Apprentice-style reality show where interns vie for a one year position at the magazine. Just like Vince Neil and Tommy Lee, the publication has found its audience on reality TV. With a week like this, Rolling Stone will be racing in a plastic bubble on Celebrity Fit Club in no time.
