The latest issue of Rolling Stone goes behind the scenes of The Voice, NBC’s white-hot singing competition featuring Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton. We posted an excerpt of Brian Hiatt’s cover story, in which the four stars speak openly about working together despite having little in common. “Just look at the four of us,” says Levine. “It’s just so wrong and so amazing.”
The Voice will return after the Super Bowl on Sunday. In anticipation of the big game, we put together a gallery of famous New York Giants and New England Patriots fans, and looked back over the best halftime performances in the history of the game.
We also talked to rising star Lana Del Rey about the backlash to her debut album Born to Die, interviewed Leonard Cohen about his latest album Old Ideas, chatted with The Cult’s Ian Astbury about their intense new album Choice of Weapon, discussed the fireHOSE reunion with Mike Watt, investigated troubled Megaupload co-founder Kim Dotcom and reviewed hot concerts by Van Halen and Skrillex in Los Angeles. Plus, we reviewed all the latest albums, analyzed the pop charts and looked back on this week in rock history.
