goodbye to ‘game of thrones’

“The amount of journalism happening now is insane. Cat Fancy is breaking huge new stories. Everybody’s in the game.”—SAMANTHA BEE IN THIS ISSUE, we say farewell to what might be the last show everyone watches together. Game of Thrones had a global reach like nothing before it on TV. When you factor in illegal downloads and streams, the previous season was viewed by at least a billion people — meaning one of seven humans on the planet. “It does things you never expected TV to be able to do in terms of dragons flying and burning up entire armies, and zombies storming down a mountain,” says Alan Sepinwall, our chief TV critic, who has never missed an episode. “It’s viscerally thrilling in a way that almost nothing in TV has ever…

+ love letters & advice

“These women are breaking ground for all women. They are hope and action personified. They inspire me to do more for my country and all people.”—Mojo, via the internet The Power of Pelosi For our Women Shaping the Future issue in March, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi posed alongside three congressional freshmen: Jahana Hayes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar. Each of them spoke about how women are changing politics, challenging Trump, and more. Ryan Knight wrote that this issue gave him hope, adding, “These fierce women are moving America forward, and they are doing it together.” Hillary Clinton also commented, sharing this quote from Hayes: “We are at an intersection in history, and 20 years from now, it’s going to be the millennials and the students and the women and the…

the mothership’s final voyage

“IN THE OLD DAYS, you partied all night,” George Clinton says. “You didn’t go to bed till 7 [a.m.], and then you got back up at 10. Back then I had every kind of drug I could get my hands on, illegal or not.” The Funkmaster General changed his hard-partying ways about six or seven years ago — he’s not sure of the precise date. “That wasn’t long ago, but I ain’t trying to count no days either,” he says. Now 77, he spends most of his Parliament-Funkadelic touring days resting in his dressing room, so he can save up energy for his legendarily wild stage act. Clinton, who founded the core bands in the P-Funk collective more than 50 years ago, is boarding the Mothership one more time in May for…

a whole new wrld

LET’S SAY YOU’RE a newly famous teenager, with a single that’s on its way to being one of the year’s biggest and a reported seven-figure major-label advance in the bank, and you want to meet a girl. Where do you look? If you’re Juice WRLD, you go straight to your Twitter messages. “She DM’d me telling me to keep up the good work and that she really liked my music,” the rapper, now 20, says of his girlfriend of almost a year. “It wasn’t flirtatious, it was just a congratulations. Then I don’t know what happened.” Juice WRLD writes almost exclusively about adolescent heartbreak. He’s not worried, though, that his newfound romantic bliss will affect his writing. “I always put myself in a space to make whatever I want to make,” he…

‘BADLANDS’ Released 1978 ‘BORN IN THE U.S.A.’ Released 1984 BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN HAS released more than 300 songs over the past 46 years, and ROLLING STONE senior writer Brian Hiatt tells the story of every one of them in his new book, Bruce Springsteen: The Stories Behind the Songs. It’s the product of more than 55 hours of new interviews with key Springsteen collaborators, including E Street band members Roy Bittan and Max Weinberg, and producers Chuck Plotkin, Brendan O’Brien and Ron Aniello. “I first learned a lot of music history through Bruce’s music,” says Hiatt, who has interviewed Springsteen five times for the magazine. “There really are whole universes inside these songs.” Here’s a sample of some of the hidden inspirations behind classic songs that Hiatt uncovered in his reporting. ‘BORN TO RUN’ Released 1975 ‘TUNNEL OF…
