Maxim Gets Fucked
Seriously, what credibility does Maxim have? They've really fucked themselves over after pulling this kind of shit.
The review in Maxim's March issue gives the Crowes' "Warpaint" a rating of two-and-a-half stars out of five. The band posted an exasperated statement on its Web site last week saying the Maxim writer hadn't heard the entire album because advance copies weren't available. The Crowes' manager, Pete Angelus, said the magazine explained that its review was an "educated guess." [via Yahoo]
RAPPER Nas was shocked when Maxim gave his new album, "Nigger," a 2 1/2-star review - because it isn't even finished yet. "I'm finishing the album now, and it will be out April 22," Nas told Page Six. Maxim has since apologized for the premature review, but Nas doesn't care. "I'd prefer [a review from] Playboy," the rapper said. "That kind of stuff doesn't reach my radar or effect anybody around me. I don't know what a music rating from Maxim is . . . I don't know what it even means really." Maxim also reviewed the Black Crowes' album, "War Paint," without listening to it in its entirety. [via NY Post Page Six]
Well I'm for sure not gonna support these lame-o music writers any longer, the only magazine I'll buy from now on is Nintendo Power, kickin' it old school.
