The Rolling Stone Cover You’ll Hate

Rolling Stone Cover 2013

Right now a lot of you are wondering why the F*** I would post something like this and I have three words for you, BECAUSE I CAN. That’s right, it’s a free country and according to my constitutional rights, I have every right to post this cover if I want to. And I have to say, the same goes for Rolling Stone Magazine. At the end of the day, yes it was in poor taste for them to make this photo their cover, BUT it took MAJOR HUEVOS for the magazine to print this cover. The best part, most people don’t even realize that by giving this cover all the attention in the world, it will just give the magazine more free press. You might say, yea but this is bad press Crystal… I hate to break it to you my loyal readers, there REALLY is NO such thing as bad press. All press is good press. Why you ask? Because it’s FREE. And anything that is FREE in this day and age, is a good thing.

What the “outraged” community has been claiming is that, RS’s cover is meant for Rock Stars. Really!?!? Have you seen some of the recent people on this cover? If being a Rock Star is a requirement, their editor is blind in one eye and can’t see out the other (EX: Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Taylor Lautner). And to clear up another claim, NO ONE said for ONE SECOND that RS was glamorizing this guy. It was people that saw the cover and automatically jumped to conclusions. If you read the fine print they call him a “MONSTER.” Before you get all defensive and pissed at me, I lived in Boston for 4 and a half years and when I saw those bombs go off, I cried realizing that my school was a mere two blocks away. I want this guy to get what’s coming to him and I think that making sure every person in America knowing what he looks like is just a piece of the very large punishment he deserves. He’ll never be safe here… that’s for damn sure.

Musicians = Sexy

So I’m reading through all my alerts today and I stumbled across this wonderful article that basically just reaffirmed the beliefs of every female that has ever been attracted to musicians. According to a study done by researchers at the University of South Brittany, 31% of women are more likely to give their number to a guy carrying a guy versus a guy carrying nothing. What they did to get these numbers is what really put a smile on my face. They hired an actor to approach 300 women first carrying a guitar, then nothing, then a sports bag. Apparently us women aren’t that swallow because out of the three, the biggest turn OFF was the sports bag. Only 9% gave the actor their number.

Last year, the University of Tel Aviv did a similar study with extremely similar if not exactly the same results. The researchers have come to the conclusion that this attraction comes from a “sign that the man is intelligent, can learn, or is willing to learn, new skills and has independent hobbies.” They also attribute these results to mass media that hold musicians in high regard often signifying wealth and status.

Alright Ladies, are they right? Would you give a guy your number just because he had a guitar? I don’t know about you but I probably would. Thank you researchers for just proving what I’ve always thought. Musicians really do = SEXY.
