Not just any photographer can coax rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs to sit in a gilded throne, cloaked in king's garb, in the middle of Times Square, to personify the social class musings from Thorstein Veblen's 1899 book "The Theory of the Leisure Class." Or to get Johnny Cash to pose with his back facing the camera. Or to shoot Mick Fleetwood in a wedding dress alongside John McVie, the members of Nirvana in Brooks Brothers suits, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers au naturel.

Put it out there The story of the fledgling On the Speakers sounds like a treatment for a reality TV show. A frontman from a busted band and a guitar player meet after bashing bumpers in a fender bender. They meet a drummer on the street while he's banging on a bucket, a bassist signs on and now all four live in a house together, rehearse and write songs. High jinks ensue.

In a year that has seen a veritable logjam of movie musicals, rockumentaries and biopics about famous singers -- and at a time when more such films are being green-lighted every month -- it was bound to come along: a magazine dedicated to the intersection of pop music and moviemaking. Enter Movies Rock, a custom publishing supplement that will be mailed to about 16 million subscribers of 14 Conde Nast magazines -- such as Vanity Fair, Vogue and GQ -- beginning Nov. 1.

Left to right on the newsstand, the gallery looks like this: Julianna Margulies, of NBC's "ER," reaches behind to unfasten (or possibly to fasten) her bra, on the August issue of Esquire. Renee Zellweger, who appeared opposite Tom Cruise in "Jerry Maguire," spills out of her Prada dress on the September cover of Vanity Fair. The increasingly exposed (no pun intended) Mira Sorvino amply fills her black camisole, bra straps in plain view, to lure readers to the August issue of GQ.

Ever since she first appeared with her band 10,000 Maniacs, spinning madly in opening slots with R.E.M., there's been a compelling mystery to Natalie Merchant. The poet and vocalist from Jamestown, N.Y., was the focal point of the Maniacs through its six albums, which began to seep into the public consciousness with singles such as "Like the Weather," "Trouble Me" and "These Are Days." Yet Merchant played against the rules of female rock stardom.

Girls will be boys . . . Girding their loins for legal war . . . Battling over Brad in babe garb. Some films create buzz. Others, litigation. "Boys Don't Cry" already is stirring up a bit of both. The film about the 1993 rape and murder of Teena Brandon (aka Brandon Teena) is winning critical raves in limited release. And it has inspired two lawsuits--one by a real-life character, the other by the author of a book about the dark tale of gender-bending and murder. In a lawsuit filed in U.S.

Rock 'n' roll was never just about music. It was also about the way Jimi Hendrix held a guitar and the look in his eyes when he set it ablaze onstage in 1967. Its essence could be found in the swirl of a mosh pit, in the epic pompadour of James Brown, in the provocative finery of Madonna and KISS. For this, fans have depended on the permanent record captured by generations of rock photography, from the gorgeous black-and-white reportage by Alfred Wertheimer of a young Elvis Presley on the road in 1956 to the vivid portraits of Kurt Cobain and Katy Perry by Mark Seliger for the cover of Rolling Stone.
