The fact that Rollingstone interviewed El Chapo is insane to me. I know plenty of high profile criminals and murderers have been interviewed by major publications in the the past, but this is just off-the-wall how it went down — especially the timing. Just days after the drug kingpin was reportedly captured in Mexico, comes this lengthy interview with the guy. It’s really the only one that exists and covers this much ground with El Chapo. Honestly, it even puts fuel in the conspiracy theorist in me. Do they really have the man in custody… or…

It’s even more insane too me that actor Sean Penn and a Mexican actress known for supporting El Chapo were the ones to get this done. In the story, Sean writes about how the feature was months in the making, and that they were most likely being tracked by authorities the whole time. You have to read on, man.

Cosby answered questions from Constand’s attorney, Dolores Troiani.

“Yes,” Cosby replied.
