Who says print media is out? 2014 proved to be quite the year for magazines, with many of music’s biggest acts appearing on the covers of several well-known glossies. From Bloomberg Businessweek’s November cover with Taylor Swift to XXL’s cover featuring music tech pioneers Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine (+ Eminem), 2014 music publications had many firsts…and lasts.
And let’s not forget about scandals. No trouble-making celebrity made headlines last year quite like Justin Bieber, and Rolling Stone summed up his bad boy antics perfectly with its March cover starring the singer. We’d like to point out that RS’ cover line, “Why Justin Bieber Just Won’t Behave” hasn’t been answered.
