All the top-voted comments underneath Sinead’s post have been supportive of her opinion

Rolling Stone hasn’t been about the music for a long while now.
I seriously have NO respect for Rolling Stone here on out….
The worst choice for a cover in rolling stone history….

With some saying that the magazine has always chosen what is popular

It’s a pop magazine. I love you Sinead but Rolling Stone does not define good music or taste. Don’t give them so much credit. Every now and then they do something good, but in general, it’s always been what’s popular.
