Rolling Stone has merged two things I enjoy - photographer Terry Richardson and Gossip Girl, and for this I am eternally grateful.
Apparently this is the first cover Terry has shot for Rolling Stone - which I do not believe. The man's provocative, tongue-in-cheek style is perfect for the alternative, and sometimes jaw-dropping, style of a magazine that has had the iconic shot of Britney Spears that made the world question her vow of virginity (and violated a Teletubby's innocence), and a cover with a naked Janet Jackson (with someone else's hands blocking her breasts).
The fact that he's photographed the young stars of TV's guiltiest pleasure is perfect.
