The articles are always challenging and thought-provoking, but it’s their bold and often-controversial covers that are forever burned into our memory.

From outlandish illustrations to stark portraits, these images comment on sensitive subjects like presidential elections, terrorism, drugs, and (of course) nudity. They’ve put the nails on the “good girl” coffins of stars like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Miley Cyrus.

It’s safe to say that aging hits some folks harder than others, and people definitely change as they grow older. But sometimes Mother Nature gets a little help!

Bach & Roll: 10 Modern Songs Written By Classical Composers

If you’re one of those people who swears that they hate classical music, you may want to sit down because you’ve probably been listening to classical music this whole time without knowing it.
