When Nasa's InSight lander touched down on Mars in November it upset a rock, sending it tumbling over the Martian surface. Now that rock has been named 'Rolling Stone Rock' in honour of The Rolling Stones. The announcement was made by actor Robert Downey Jr ahead of the band taking to the stage at Pasadena's Rose Bowl Stadium in California, the home of Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, (JPL) "Cross-pollinating science and a legendary rock band is always a good thing..." said Downey Jr before the 'Stones No Filter' concert. Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger said: "Nasa has given us something we've always dreamed of, our own rock on Mars. "I can't believe it, I want to bring it back and put... … [Read more...] about Nasa names Mars rock after Rolling Stones as Mick Jagger says : ‘I want to put it on the mantelpiece’

Harry Styles appears on Rolling Stone‘s September cover. Writer Rob Sheffield traversed Los Angeles and London with the former One Direction member for an in-depth interview about sex, drugs and rock & roll. Here’s a few highlights from the story that shouldn’t be missed. He’s putting the finishing touches on his second solo album. Styles made his mark as a solo artist over two years ago with his rootsy, rock-leaning self-titled debut album. After nearly a year of touring theaters, then arenas, and a few deserved months off, he holed up in Malibu for six weeks to record his sophomore LP at Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La studios with producers Jeff Bhasker and Tyler Johnson as well as friends and collaborators like guitarist Mitch Rowland, drummer Sarah Jones and Kid Harpoon (a.k.a. Tom Hull). In Styles’ own words, his new album is “all about having sex and feeling sad.” While recording, it seems like he has unleashed his inner rock … [Read more...] about 10 Things We Learned From Harry Styles’ Rolling Stone Cover Story
On the latest cover of Rolling Stone, Howard Stern poses with two black foster kittens named Trick and Treat. They were brought to the photoshoot by his wife Beth, who fosters cats in partnership with North Shore Animal League America. It was Stern’s idea to have her husband hold the kittens. “I knew at the moment it was so killer and awesome,” she says of the cover. Stern began working with the Animal League fifteen years ago, when she was working as a model and was asked if she could do a runway show at the organization’s annual luncheon. She didn’t leave until every puppy was adopted. “They recognized my passion for it, and I started volunteering and going to the shelter,” she says. “And then came out that I was Howard Stern’s girlfriend at the time.” From there, she began doing television appearances and became the organization’s spokesperson. Howard Stern photographed in New York on April 19th, 2019, by Alexei Hay. … [Read more...] about Beth Stern on Landing Her Foster Kittens on the Cover of ‘Rolling Stone’
Hours after he was roused from his Florida home in a pre-dawn raid by armed federal agents, Roger Stone, President Trump’s longtime friend and former political adviser, appeared on Fox News to announce that the charges against him were “thin indeed.” But Stone’s indictment may not be the last word from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. In fact, it may only be the opening move. A small note stamped on Stone’s indictment suggests that more charges may be forthcoming — possibly involving Russian collusion. That note states that there is a “related case” involving Stone, the 66-year-old self-described “dirty trickster” who has Nixon’s face tattooed on his back. That “related case” is likely a much bigger criminal conspiracy involving a dozen Russian intelligence officers accused of hacking the Clinton campaign. More from the Roger Stone docket: Stone's case is related to the indictment of 12 GRU officers for … [Read more...] about Is There a Secret Hiding in Roger Stone’s Indictment?
Photo: Jason Merritt/Getty Images Is there anyone or anything better than Stan Rizzo and his beard so far on this season of Mad Men? Snickering. Flipping the bird. Joking with Peggy. Being generally stoned while working on great ads. (“Pass the HEINZ” shoulda nailed it.) Amid Don’s sad spiraling, Stan is — at least so far — sweet, sweet comic relief. To think that Stan was originally only supposed to have lasted four or five episodes. “I got the call on the hiatus after season four that they were making me a regular,” says Jay R. Ferguson, who got his start on The Outsiders and Evening Shade and has since worked steadily on TV series including Burn Notice, Castle, Weeds, and Sleeper Cell. “It was just the best phone call I ever got.” He spoke with Vulture about the highs and lows of maintaining his tremendous facial hair, where things are with Stan and Peggy, and why polyester has changed his life. We’re a little obsessed … [Read more...] about ’s Jay R. Ferguson on Stan and Peggy, Playing Stoned, and His Tremendous Beard
