You’ve gotta hand it to Billboard magazine. Not only do they keep us up to date on the music industry’s hitmakers, but they provide an always interesting commentary on popular culture as we know it. Case in point is their current Green Issue (on stands this week), complete with a list of the top 10 green artists, who over the past 12 months have done good by the environment and are encouraging others to follow suit.
Did your favorites make the cut? Here’s a brief summary:
1) Jack Johnson
Super tanned and health radiating, Jack Johnson is as easy on the eye as he is on the environment. The Live Earth veteran has kitted his Brushfire Records recording studio on Larchmont Boulevard (ooh, that’s where I do yoga…I must stalk — I mean, look him up) with denim walls and solar panels. The avid surfer also tours green and makes girls scream. The latter’s not so green, unless you count the green paper it generates for Jack.
