Can We Just...

...sit back and admire for a second? True Blood stars Alexander Skarsgård and real-life married couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer get bloodied up and bothered for the latest issue. (Anna needs to move that leg!)


Rolling Stone has always upped the ante when it comes to controversial covers, two of the most famous ones being the John Lennon and Yoko Ono cover and the Janet Jackson cover--both of which are relatively demure now. Funny how our definition of "controversy" changes over the decades.

John and Yoko, Jan 1981 issue shot by Annie Leibovitz on the day Lennon was killed; Janet Jackson with the hands of then-unknown husband René Elizondo, Jr., Sept 1993 issue shot by Patrick Demarchelier.

Of recent Rolling Stone covers, my favorite has been the Leighton Meester and Blake Lively April 2009 issue, shot by Terry Richardson.

Simple, raw and rife with sexual innuendo as we can always expect from Richardson. But this latest vampire sandwich cover trumps ALL.
