Los Angeles Scene
By Jerry Hopkins, pp 11-15

This is interesting because even in a heavy, non-teenybopper magazine like Rolling Stone at the height of the Monkees success, Peter Tork was listed as an “influential personality” in the Los Angeles music scene. Even back then the Monkees had more cred than we think they did.

According to Rolling Stone, these are the influential Los Angeles Personalities of 1968: David Crosby, Mama Cass, Terry Melcher, David Anderle, Lou Adler, Peter Tork, Frank Zappa, Brian Wilson, Jim Morrison, Barry McGuire, and Phil Spector.

Britney Spears by David LaChapelle | RS 810, April 15, 1999

Britney was just 17 when she posed for her first cover, but she was already game to take risks. “I said to her, ‘You don’t want to be buttoned up,’” David LaChapelle said in 2006. Spears invited LaChapelle to her bedroom in Kentwood, Louisiana. At one point, her manager, Larry Rudolph, walked in and saw her posing in her bra. “Britney said, ‘Yeah, I don’t feel comfortable,’” said the photographer. “At first I felt betrayed. But as soon as Larry walked out, Britney said, ‘Lock the door,’ and unbuttoned her shirt wide open.” Years later, Spears was happy with the result. “Holy Roller religious people made such a big deal about that photo,” she said in 2006. “I thought [it] was a good representation of who I really am.”

Herb Ritts flew to Tokyo in 1987 with a plan to snap photos of Madonna all over town. But the pulsating mob of screaming fans that followed her everywhere she went on the Japanese leg of the “Who’s That Girl” tour made that impossible. Ritts called the Rolling Stone office in a panic, and the decision was made to simply shoot the pop star in the bed of her hotel room. No one remembers where the Minnie Mouse hat came from, but the shoot, born from desperation, resulted in the perfect mix of lighthearted glamour. “Of all the pictures taken of Madonna, that’s probably the most innocent one,” said former Rolling Stone photo director Laurie Kratochvil. “It shows another side of her – goofy, cute and self-effacing. People could just relate.”
