Ne-YO Not Feeling Snooki's RS Cover So Here Are Five Alternatives

By Erika Ramirez

Were you shocked to see Snooki on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine?

Ne-YO sure was. On March 7th. Ne-YO took to Twitter to express how he felt about the Jersey Shore cast member gracing the cover of Rolling Stone.

“Wow. Snooki is on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Really? I quit. (Just kidding, but almost serious…) Ne-YO tweeted.

“No disrespect to Snooki, I don’t know her, but damn Rolling Stone? REALLY? REALLY! I guess…” Ne-Yo continued. “I feel a rant coming on, but at the sake of sounding like I’m complaining or even hating, I’mma chill. I got y’all. New album on the way. I WILL get the respect I deserve I this business or I won’t be in this business. PERIOD.”

Below are five hip-hop acts, in no particular order, which Ne-YO may attest deserve a Rolling Stone cover as well.

Nicki Minaj

Surprised? Minaj has covered magazines such as Billboard, V, YRB, VIBE, to name a few. Look out for the video premiere of one of Taylor Swift’s favorite off Minaj’s Pink Friday, “Super Bass.”


With an eventful 2010, there’s no doubt that Drake has some tricks up his sleeve for the near future. Say a joint LP with Lil Wayne? Yes, indeed!

N*E*R*D/Pharrell Williams

The masterminds, behind hits of artists as Britney Spears, Madonna, Gwen Stefani to Snoop and Clipse, have been in the game since the early 90s and have branched out as clothing brand co-founders and artists themselves.


After the passing and going of G.O.O.D. music record deal rumors and a messy child support charges with ex-wife Kelis, the Queens rapper needs some good news. As do we!

Ice Cube

West Coast G’s Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre appeared on Rolling Stone’s 666th issue (September 30th, 1993) but Cube has yet. Is it too late?
