Inside a $25,000-a-night escort service...

...Oh, wait, get your head out of the gutter. I'm just reading what the caption says about the girls from "The Hills." Wrong caption, you say? So why in the heck is a reality TV show featured in a music magazine?

Don't get me wrong, I love the show with all its fakeness and pettiness and peroxideness, but I don't think it deserves a cover story on Rolling Stone. These girls, while we all know them from watching their every move for the last 3 years, are by no means talents. They are pretty people with connections to dream jobs and fantasy homes and vacations, with links to the latest trendy bars, cars, and boys. They are Barbie in reality, but I don't see them as more deserving than a lot of other artists who are truly talented, have worked on their craft, and are able to deliver more than silly drama.

I think RS is just trying to cash out with putting the arch-rivals on their cover, which I'm sure was a huge feat considering the people involved, but it's almost like a "so what?" The people subscribing to RS definitely weren't sitting around waiting for this cover story, and the people who normally care about these people buy gossip rags. Anyhow, I'm sure that the photos will be very nice, etc., but honestly, I don't think they deserve such an honor for what they've done so far.
