Rolling Stone rejecting to cover Jackson in 1979. 
At the time Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough and Rock With You had both recently been released as singles and had charted at number one. 

In 1979, Rolling Stone passed on a cover story about the singer, saying that it didn’t feel Jackson merited front cover status. “I’ve been told over and over again that black people on the covers of magazines don’t sell copies,” an exasperated Jackson told confidantes. “Just wait. Some day those magazines will come begging for an interview.” Jackson, of course, was right (Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner actually sent a self-deprecatory letter acknowledging the oversight in 1984). And during the 1980s, at least, Jackson’s image seemed ubiquitous. Yet over the long haul, Jackson’s initial concern seems legitimate. As shown in the breakdown below, his appearances on the front cover of Rolling Stone, the United States’ most visible music publication, are far fewer than those of white artists: John Lennon: 30 Mick Jagger: 29 Paul McCartney: 26 Bob Dylan: 22 Bono: 22 Bruce Springsteen: 22 Madonna: 20 Britney Spears: 13 Michael Jackson: 8 (two came after he died; one featured Paul McCartney as well) Is it really possible that Michael Jackson, arguably the most influential artist of the 20th century, merited less than half the coverage of Bono, Bruce Springsteen, and Madonna?
