Magazine cover deja vu: The new Entertainment Weekly cover looks kind of familiar...

If the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly looks a little familiar, there's a reason.

This week's issue -- which features "American Idol" team members Randy Jackson, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Seacrest chilling in the back of what appears to be a limo -- looks similar to a certain September Rolling Stone magazine cover.

See what I mean after the jump.

Yes, it's the "Mad Men" cover, that "controversial" one that prompted a healthy dose of outrage over bad photoshopping from the good people at Jezebel.

It too features a quartet chilling in the back of what appears to be a limo. The "Mad Men" cast members, like the "Idol" pack, also stare directly into camera, daring readers to challenge their effortlessly glam attitude. Seacrest is even wearing almost the same suit as Jon Hamm, although fortunately for the "Idol" host, he looks less constipated than Don Draper.

No conspiracy theory here, really. Just a funny little coincidence. I look forward to seeing Andrew Lincoln and a trio of zombies chilling out in the back of an Escalade on the cover of Esquire when "Walking Dead" returns to television.

Speaking of eerily similar photos, did anyone else see Jared Lee Loughner's smiling mug shot and get reminded of Eva Quaid? Creepy....
