In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Seth Rogen talks about how Kanye rapped his entire upcoming album to him in the back of a limo shortly after his parody of the "Bound 2" video. Read it here.
Shortly after his and James Franco's parody of the rapper's "Bound 2" video – "Bound 3," in which the actor played the role of topless Kim Kardashian – West cornered Rogen at a New York hotel and invited him to his limo van for a listening session with a twist. "There's no lyrics, only beats," Rogen said. "So he raps the whole album, and after each song, he stops it, like, 'So what do you think?' We were in the van for two hours!"

Jack White took a few minutes from his show at Fenway Park to fire shots at Foo Fighters and Rolling Stone. You can find the audio from the show in the replies.
I'm officially supposed to stop now because this is becoming a Kanye West-esque rant for Rollingstone.com. Because apparently, nowadays, you aren't allowed to speak to your own fans about anything, lest it be a rant. So forget ISIS, forget the war in the Middle East, forget any problems at home, forget gay marriage, forget everything you ever thought about everything. This not a rant. This is just me saying, hello Cleveland!"

You can read Taylor Swift's Rolling Stone cover story, "The Reinvention of Taylor Swift."
Swift's last album, 2012's Red, straddled the line between country and pop. "But at a certain point," she says, "if you chase two rabbits, you lose them both." So this time, she set out to do full-on "blatant pop music." A casual fan won't notice much difference, but to Swift and her brand, it's a big step. She says she won't be going to country-awards shows or promoting the album on country radio. When she first turned in the record, she says the head of her label, Scott Borchetta, told her, "This is extraordinary – it's the best album you've ever done. Can you just give me three country songs?"

The odd, acrimonious situation in Wu-Tang Clan over their 20th anniversary album A Better Tomorrow continues to escalate. This time, Raekwon took long winded, angry shots at RZA over the situation in a Rolling Stone interview. He says he's "on strike" from Wu-Tang, and says RZA's "like being a coach and you won rings back in the day, but now your team is in ninth place. It’s time for a new fucking game plan." The interview is chock full of insight from Rae on a number of topics and is well worth the read.

Drake has taken to his blog to apologize for his comments regarding Rolling Stone's decision to replace him on cover with the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
After dwelling on it for a few hours or days you will come to the conclusion that you brought it on yourself almost every time. So here I am having that moment. I once again apologize to everybody who took my cover comments the wrong way. I respect Rolling Stone for being willing to give a kid from Toronto a shot at the cover. I guess this is a day to learn and grow.

Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme suggests in the newest issue of Rolling Stone that we won't have to wait very long for the follow-up to June's ...Like Clockwork.
We have more than enough songs. We're booked til September, but after that we plan to jump in the studio and get going...When it's time to make music, that's about getting lost for me. To be a control freak is not half as good as being a freak who's casually in control. You're feeling around in the dark for something that feels good. As long as you're not in an orgy, that can be an amazing moment.

You can also check out the band's recent hour-long performance on "Austin City Limits" over on the PBS website.

Rolling Stone named Cassadee Pope as one of their "Hottest Sex Symbols" this year. I still find judging people by their looks ... odd. Any reason to toss together a page-view-generating slide show though, right?

In response to the outrage towards its recent cover featuring terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Rolling Stone has added an editor's note to its online version of the story. Despite that, stores like Walgreens and CVS have banned the issue from appearing on its newsstands.

Rolling Stone recently made the poor decision to feature terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover of its upcoming issue.

Lil B recently dictated an Op-Ed about the abortion debate in Texas to Rolling Stone.
Wendy Davis matters. She's a woman fighting for what's right. A lot of people aren't agreeing with her; she's doing something that's out of the norm. A lot of people who do agree are scared to speak, or they're not in a position to be heard. So I definitely respect Ms. Davis for planting new seeds for women's rights. I'm trying to do that on my level, too. I think women are going to keep excelling. We're going to have a woman president. We need more women in the workforce, way more women involved in running everything. That's our problem.

Rolling Stone have posted their "100 Greatest Debut Albums of All Time" list.
A note on how we made the list: Albums got docked points if the artist went on to far greater achievements (which is why Please, Please Me and Greetings from Asbury Park, great as they are, didn't made the top ten); conversely, we gave a little extra recognition to great debut albums that the artist never matched (hello, Is This It and Illmatic!). We also skipped solo debuts by artists who were already in well-known bands, which is why you won’t see John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band or Paul Simon. We focused, instead, on debuts that gave you the thrill of an act arriving fully-formed, ready to reinvent the world...

"Like, hip-hop," Mumford says with a grin. "We really want to rap. We've just got so much to say – saying it through a melody doesn't really work for me. We've been talking with Jay-Z about it, you know. It's gonna be a fresh experience for our band." Does the band rap in the practice room? "Yeah," Mumford says. "We're like, 'Motherfucker!'"

John Mayer sat down with Rolling Stone and talked about his voice, a forthcoming return tour, and dating Katy Perry.
I just became more settled in as a person. I would rather not be settled in as a person instead of playing music all the time, to be honest with you. But that wasn't an option. I wasn't going to be able to just visualize myself as a musician. You know, when you visualize yourself as a musician, you can make a lot of apologies for the little weird, interpersonal things you have with people. And when you don't have that, you go, "OK, let's focus in on the fact that the people I see today, I'm going to see tomorrow.

Decked out in a loose-fitting black tank top, tight black jeans and black eye shadow, Grace was in high spirits as she delivered her trademark, throat-shredding screams.
