In homage to the 30th anniversary of Interview’s 1989 “Los Angeles Special,” our Summer issue takes a detour to La La Land, not quite as a place but as a (sometimes very deranged) state of mind.
For our cover interview, the actress Sarah Paulson takes the mask off the legend Rihanna, and we find that there’s more to the world’s richest female musician than meets the eye. Inside the issue, the iconic couturier Thierry Mugler bares all about his radical body modification with the actress and literal tiger mom Tippi Hedren.
The Queen of Grunge Courtney love answers 20 questions from her very famous friends and shares both of her favorite Liz Taylor stories. In our first ever bilingual interview, the Latin music stars Bad Bunny and Rosalía chat about manicures and finally address the rumors that they themselves might, in their own words, be “bad bunnies.”
In Los Angeles itself, we ask Mayor Eric Garcetti about the new Del Taco logo, check in with the master of crass Paul McCarthy on his new film set, revisit Bruce Springsteen’s debut as a graffiti artist, and watch Netflix in the Malibu bachelor pad of sin city scions Brandon Thomas and Dylan Jagger Lee.
Oh, and PeeWee Herman confirms he did almost collaborate with Purina to make a dog food for human children. All this, and much, much more!
