Sean Lennon Recreates His Parents “John & Yoko” Famous Rolling Stone Cover Photo

For the Fall 2009 issue of Purple Magazine, Sean Lennon and his girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl recreated the famous Rolling Stone cover photo of his parents Yoko Ono and John Lennon. The original photo was taken by Annie Leibovitz on December 8, 1980 the day Lennon was murdered.

Sean Lennon caught a lot of flak for the photo.  When asked about it he said…

“Basically what happened was, we were in bed.  We kind of thought that it would be funny if she rolled over and did that shot.  It was not set up at all.  I didn’t want them to put it out necessarily.  It wasn’t like, “Oh, let’s do this shot!”  It wasn’t set up.  And then they just put it out.  It was just a snapshot and I really didn’t think anyone would care.  I didn’t even remember it until I started getting vehement hate mail.”

Here’s the full-size photo…

    Haha!! Of COURSE it wasn't planned…. And it's just 'happened' that Sean decided to reverse the role in the original Rolling Stones photo?
