Honest, We’re Just Going to Buy It For the Music Stories
It would seem that the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition would have lost all of its luster in this overstimulated age of porno-at-a-click. Why see a teasing come-hither photo when you can dial up anything your libido desires (minus the swimsuit) on-line? Perhaps that’s why, this year, SI is combining its swimsuit issue with its “music issue.” Beyonce made the cover, the first non-athlete/non-model to do so. The inside features music stars like Gnarls Barkley, Kanye West, Panic! At the Disco and Aerosmith cavorting with scantily clad young ladies. Pity the poor model who pulled the “Aerosmith” straw!
Anyway, this should warm some of you up on this frigid day:
