Rolling Stone Put Miley Cyrus on Front Cover Over Nirvana and Pearl Jam
Despite featuring stories about 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final record "In Utero" and grunge veterans Pearl Jam, Rolling Stone editorial decided to give Miley Cyrus the advantage and place the controversial young pop star on the front cover of upcoming issue, Alternative Nation reports. The Nirvana feature piece consists of an interview with the band's former drummer Dave Grohl and his memories of final conversation with late frontman Kurt Cobain, while the Pearl Jam article revolves around vocalist Eddie Vedder and the group's upcoming tenth studio effort "Lightning Bolt," due out on October 15. Ever since this year's MTV Awards ceremony, Miley's been in the public limelight, with even some of the prominent rock figures touching on the matter of VMAs. Dave Grohl gave his opinion regarding "rock is dead" comments in one of the ceremony reports, while Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme took a quick jab at Cyrus, announcing a "twerk-free" show at the same venue. The same source also included footage of Miley's 2011 "Smells Like Teen Spirit" live performance along with a snarky question: "Could she be an early candidate to front Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?" So did the magazine disrespect the icons or should young stars get the advantage? Let us know in the comments.
