Yesterday (Friday), Katy Perry was honored at an event in New York with the title of Billboard Woman of the Year for 2012.

As you can see, Perry looks stunning as she graces the cover of the December issue of Billboard. In an interview with the magazine, Perry explains how she was totally caught off guard by this and how grateful she is. “I’d thought my year was over, that it was time to pass the baton. But I guess I get to hold onto it until the end of the year. It’s truly a lovely compliment.” I think she was a great choice for this honor, considering her record-breaking success coupled with her ability to inspire and remain so down to earth.

At last night’s event, she explained, “I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women.” She added, “I don’t really like to call myself a role model for my fans. I hope that I am an inspiration for them, especially young women. My mantra, especially for the [‘Part Of Me’] film, was: If you believe in yourself, you can be anything.”

I have to say I was a little surprised with Entertainment Weekly’s choice of Entertainer of the Year. There’s no denying Ben Affleck’s political thriller Argo is fantastic, but to earn the EW’s top spot… I’m not so sure. Helping his cause somewhat is probably his rise after making a series of flops including Gigli and Jersey Girl. Holllywood loves a comeback. His directing effort will undoubtedly bring him back to the Academy Awards- 15 years after a fresh-faced Affleck won for Good Will Hunting.

In the issue, Affleck is given praise by Argo producer George Clooney. The silver fox isn’t the only one giving an All-Star Tribute. Jamie Foxx showers Kerry Washington with love, while Jimmy Fallon talks up the awesomeness that is Anne Hathaway. Here are a few other tributes:

Charlize Theron on Jennifer Lawrence

“How is it that she can just stand there, not saying a word, and make us feel so much? Her talent is undeniable, and she is a force to be reckoned with.”

Aziz Ansari on Showtime’s Homeland

“The turns are unexpectedly sharp, and the season’s plot has been aggressively paced in the best way. To put it bluntly, crazy s— just keeps happening.”

Nathan Fillion on Avenger’s director Josh Whedon

“He does what he does for the right reasons: this guy loves telling stories…. There are millions of people who’ve known of his talent for years, thanks to Buffy, Angel, and Firefly. Now it seems like everybody knows.”

What is a Hollywood Maverick in the eyes of Details magazine? They are innovators, risk-takers and big thinkers changing the face of entertainment. “Writers are becoming directors, directors are becoming moguls, actors are becoming all of the above instead of lying around praying for a spin-off.” The publication decided to honor these individuals for their December 2012 issue.

Leonardo DiCaprio received the big honor of gracing the cover, but he’s not the only one being recognized for his big ideas. Chris Colfer for his work as a writer, director and executive producer on Struck By Lightning is being hailed a Career Opportunist. His initiative for writing his next project rather than waiting on the sidelines is the reason why he’s being singled out.

Zachary Quinto is featured in the Creative Collectives category alongside his fellow Margin Call filmmakers. The New Normal’s Andrew Rannells made the Survivors list with Chris Messina for making it big after years of casting calls. Details named John Krasinski as the Idea Man, while Pitch Perfect’s Rebel Wilson is being hailed as The Next Big Thing. Check out their photos snapped by Doug Inglish below.

GORGEOUS. That’s all I kept thinking as I looked through Marion Cotillard’s spread in W Magazine. The 37-year-old star is beyond red hot in the editorial. Wearing a black blob, the Rust and Bone actress resembles an edgy sophisticated version of Katy Perry with an S&M twist.

Snapped by photographer Tim Walker, Cotillard poses with a model dressed up as a toy solider in a couple of shots. It’s a creepy interpretation of Babes in Toyland. The shots with hands grabbing her from cloth walls are intoxicating as well. For the accompanying interview, Marion sits down with Lynn Hirschberg and discusses her childhood, acting inspiration and her Oscar experience. Check out several photos and quotes from her W issue below.

On Her Childhood

“I always wanted to express myself by being someone other than myself. I needed to experience the human soul—something more than just my soul. I wasn’t enough! When I was 10 or 11, I played an angry housekeeper in a play at camp. I was yelling at everyone. I remember the feeling I had when it was over. I really loved it.”

Admittedly, I’m a sucker for year-end lists and just can’t enough of them. So imagine my joy this morning when I learned Out magazine released their Out 100 list. I was like a gay kid in a gay candy store. Oh happy day.

The publication honors the most compelling lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from all walks of life including celebrities, writers, politicians, artists, entrepreneurs and so forth. To celebrate this annual issue, the publication bestowed the honor of gracing the cover to four individuals- Jane Lynch (The Entertainer), Boy George (The Legend), Sharon Needles (The Stylemaker) and Andrew Rannells (The Ingenue). All four covers are fantastic and I can’t decide which one is the best.

A few others that made that made the OUT 100 list include Isis King (ANTM trans model), Michael Urie (Partners), Mika (singer), Elton John & his hubby David Furnish, Patrick Abner & Thomas Roberts (HIV community liaison and MSNBC anchor, newlyweds) and Omar Sharif Jr. (advocate). I also wanted to mention (thank and blame) entrepreneurs Jason Goldberg & Bradford Shellhammer for FAB.com. You don’t even want to know how much I spend over there ;) If you have time, I definitely recommend heading over to OUT.com to check out the pics of each 100 honorees and the story behind them. It’s inspiring and educational. Check out the other covers below.

While Ben Affleck, Channing Tatum and Rihanna each have their own cover for GQ’s Men of the Year annual issue here in North America, Chris Hemsworth stands alone down under and is bestowed with “Man of the Year” accolades. The 29-year-old Aussie native looks dapper on GQ Australia’s cover snapped by photographer Simon Emmett. Inside the issue, the Thor actor talks about his Star Wars obsession, his “overnight” success, and growing up in Australia. Check out a few photos and quotes below. At the end of the post, I also list other Aussie personalities honored in the issue.

On Growing Up Aussie

“It was a different world. There were crocodiles and buffalo. We were isolated, one of two white families. We saw a lot of corroborees and tribal dancing. I have a wider understanding for the Aboriginal situation because of my time there. It’s an insight into that world that most people don’t get.”

It’s hard to compete with a nearly naked Rihanna, but somehow Channing Tatum and Ben Affleck still managed to score their own respective covers for GQ’s annual Men of the Year issue. Theirs just happened to hit the internet the day after the “We Found Love” singer’s cover went viral. The people over at GQ aren’t dummies. They knew RiRi’s would have social media buzzing.

Tatum, the publication’s Movie Star of the Year, fixes his tie on the cover while giving his signature smirk. Given the actor propelled The Vow, Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street over the 100 million mark at the box office, he certainly deserves the title. Word on the street is that the 32-year-old is the frontrunner to take People’s Sexiest Man Alive honors this year. Must be nice to be Channing in 2012.

Meanwhile, Affleck earns Filmmaker of the Year honors from GQ for his work on Argo which is receiving major Oscar buzz. Not too shabby for the guy who gave the world Gigli, Surviving Christmas, Forces of Nature and so on. Ben is certainly having a banner year. He’s also winning our Who’d You Rather poll against his bromance Matt Damon. Check out his cover below.

Keira Knightley & Rihanna Go Naked For December Covers

In: Donovan, Music

Maybe Daniel Craig saw a sneak peek at GQ’s December issue and that’s why he thought Rihanna would make a better Bond Girl than Beyonce. Someone’s obviously thinking with his other ‘head’ ;) Sex sells and that’s what GQ and Allure magazine are banking on with their nearly-nude December 2012 issues with Rihanna and Keira Knightley respectively.

First up is RiRi. The 24-year-old was chosen as the sole female for the publication’s annual Men of the Year issue. Wearing just a cropped leather jacket covering her boobs and arms strategically hiding her “ooh na na”, RiRi oozes sex from every pore. The “Diamonds” singer just announced the the cities for her 777 Tour, which kicks off this Wednesday in Mexico City and ends in New York City on November 20. I’m so jealous I won’t be on the party jet :(

“We are turning this jumbo jet into our tour bus. We’re practically living on this thing for a week: sleeping, partying, all together. Me, my fans, the press…it’s going to be a wild ride. I wanted it to be a rock n’ roll adventure, and I think when it’s over it will be the coolest thing I’ve ever done. I’m that excited about it.” – Rihanna
