Nick Jonas and Selena Gomez: The Controversial Photo

July 24, 2008 12:50 PM ET

There's a small controversy brewing over a photo accompanying Rolling Stone's new cover story on the Jonas Brothers. In the piece, Jason Gay writes of a backstage incident where the magazine's photographer snapped a shot of the band that got their publicist quite anxious. The photo in question? A pic of Nick, Joe, Kevin and new Disney Channel star Selena Gomez (i.e. the next Miley Cyrus) with her arm around Nick (who previously dated Cyrus). Today Gomez issued a statement denying she's seeing the youngest Jonas, saying she'd prefer a romance with Shia LaBeouf, but a source tells Us Weekly they've been an item for several months.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
