Rolling Stone Cover of the Week

One of the most memorable and talked about R.S. covers ever:

Janet Jackson
on the cover of Rolling Stone with the hands of ex-husband Rene Elizondo Jr cupping her breasts.
This cover coincided with the more mature “Janet” album era. She had sexier songs, sexier lyrics, sexier pictures, which all added up to a more provocative image.
Janet Jackson on Rolling Stone (Sept. 16, 1993)

“Sex has been an important part of me for several years. But it just hasn’t blossomed publicly until now.”

Janet Jackson

      It’s been 17 years and the cover is still unique, fresh, and provocative!
