Q285 - Featuring Lady Gaga, 100 Most Shocking Moments in Music, The Last Days of Jimi Hendrix, John Lydon, Rufus Wainwright, John Belushi, Mumford & Sons and much more...
The dildo's a first.
The one that Lady Gaga, the minx , is sporting down her trousers that is. We've not had one on the cover before. In at least one respect, then, we are breaking new ground. The story of how the aforesaid sexual aid and, in the broader sense, Lady Gaga - surely the best pop star in the purest sense of the term to have emerged in the '00s - came to this position is a fascinating one, and you'll find it laid out in full, revealing detail in the new Q Magazine, out February 23 (April 2010 issue).
Also in this month's Q is the list of the 100 Most Shocking Moments in Music - a cornucopia of death, darkness and deviance that also offers revelations aplenty concerning, among others, the late Michael Hutchence (whose demise it seems can be traced back to a loss of taste and smell), The Mamas & Papas' head hippy John Phillips (not for nothing branded The Most Sordid Man in Pop), and more besides on sex tapes, shootings and various rock stars' todgers.
It's all good unclean stuff. And, thematically, not a million miles from Jimi Hendrix's final days (also recalled in detail), and an extended encounter with one man not unfamiliar with the business of outrage - pre-butter salesman gig, that is. Mr John Lydon. Add in much else to get excited about - see the new Gorillaz album, reviewed in-depth), Q Hero John Belushi, Rufus Wainwright taking a grilling from Q Readers in Cash For Questions and, er Jedward.
