It’s widely known that Harry Styles is a cougar chaser, but does his affinity towards more mature lovers also apply to silver foxes? The One Direction member was caught off guard when British GQ asked about rumors of a romance between UK television host Nick Grimshaw and himself. The 19-year-old singer responded, “Oh, really? I didn’t even know. We’re not dating, no. We’re just friends.” The publication probed even further and flat-out asked him if he was bisexual. Styles answered, “Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so. I’m pretty sure I’m not.”
Styles isn’t the only one opening up to British GQ, Liam, Zayn, Louis and Niall all get in on the action. The boys also receive their own cover for the publication’s September issue. I’m pretty sure these will be flying off the shelves across the pond.
Speaking of September, as anyone knows, it’s one of the, if not, the biggest month for magazines. Just watch Vogue’s fascinating documentary The September Issue to witness the drama and pressure of putting together the issue. It only makes sense editors-in-chief bring out the big guns. 1D isn’t only fronting British GQ in Aug/Sept, but also covering Glamour and Teen Vogue. They’re just not dominating music right now, but newsstands as well. Check out all the covers below.
Lea Michele looks as gorgeous as ever on the cover of Marie Claire Mexico. The 26-year-old Glee actress graces the publication’s August 2013 issue. She took part in the cover shoot and interview one month prior to Cory Monteith’s untimely death due to an overdose of heroin and alcohol in Vancouver, British Columbia.
During her interview for the magazine, which took place at The Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills, Lea Michele touched on her relationship with Monteith. Cory even showed up during the shoot to support his real life leading lady. Read her thoughts about him below, along with Marie Claire Mexico editor-in-chief Ariadne Grant’s account of Cory and Lea on that day.
“It’s more interesting having a relationship with someone you work with because we get more attention because we play boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and we are also in real life. But he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible, and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a co-worker,” Lea told the magazine about Cory, before his death. “It is important to have someone that supports you and encourage you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him.” – Lea Michele
The New Normal may be dunzo but that isn’t stopping Justin Bartha from talking about it. The 34-year-old discusses the challenges on playing a gay character with Da Man magazine. In addition to disclosing how to pretend to prefer penis, Bartha dons designer threads for a stylish editorial snapped by Mitchell Nguyen McCormack. Check out a few quotes and pics below from the issue on newsstands now.
“As a straight man, the only unique challenge is to make the sexuality seem as believable as possible. Every role presents its own unique set of challenges. My own personal pussy preference doesn’t hold me back when pretending to prefer penis. Alliteration of the day.”
With famed photographer Annie Leibovitz helming the shoot, you know the finished product would be nothing but spectacular. In my opinion, this is hands down one of Katy Perry’s best photo series ever. Definitely a great way to celebrate her first Vogue cover. She previously graced an issue of Teen Vogue, but this is the first for the fashion bible.
The 28-year-old evokes old school Hollywood 50s icon Jane Russell in the country-themed spread. The “Fireworks” singer is without a doubt the most glamorous farmhand I’ve ever seen. With Valentino, Prada, Ralph Lauren and Michael Kors designs, it’s hard not to look fabulous. My personal favorite though is the Zac Posen dress she’s wearing where she’s laying in a bed of hay. Stunning.
“He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011. At first when I met him he wanted an equal, and I think a lot of times strong men do want an equal, but then they get that equal and they’re like, I can’t handle the equalness. He didn’t like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting. I felt a lot of responsibility for it ending, but then I found out the real truth, which I can’t necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day. I let go and I was like: This isn’t because of me; this is beyond me. So I have moved on from that.”
Well, isn’t Joe Manganiello one generous fellow. Just last month he showed off his Greek god-like body to Men’s Health UK. He’s once again shirtless but this time it’s for the US version. The 36-year-old covers the publication’s June/July 2013 issue and heads to the beach for the inside editorial.
Clearly, the magazine has a hard-on for Manganiello. Not only is he their cover boy, but he recently ranked as No. 1 pick on their Best Summer Bodies list. I don’t blame them. He’s all that and then some. Side note: Did you catch his hot sex scene on the True Blood season premiere this past Sunday? His butt left me absolutely speechless.
“I’m playing a werewolf. I want to look sinewy. I want to look like an animal when the shirt comes off, but I want it to be a bit misleading when I have the shirt on.”
It’s a good thing Alexander Skarsgård is a vampire on True Blood. Based on these pictures, I’m not sure he could hold his own in the boxing ring. Definitely not flying like a butterfly nor stinging like a bee. The sexy Swede looks a tad busted up. However, he looks somewhat adorable with that band-aid on his beaten nose. Any takers to nurse him back to health? I call sponge bath duties.
The 36-year-old actor graces the cover of M Magazine’s latest issue. He was snapped by photographer Matthew Brookes and styled by Alex Badia for the editorial titled, “Knockout at Fortune Gym.” Check out Alexander a little bloodied, bruised, sweaty but also sexy in the pics below. Be sure to catch the sixth season premiere of True Blood this Sunday, June 16 on HBO. I can’t wait.
Even though Shakira doesn’t have any contestants left on The Voice, her judging stint on the NBC show has proven fruitful. By all accounts, her freshman year has been met with positive reaction, reacquainting her back with North American fans. Elle magazine taps the Colombian singer for its feature editorial in their July 2013 issue. Photographer Carter Smith perfectly captures the 36-year-old singer’s natural beauty and sexiness.
Inside the issue, Shakira talks about her relationship with sexy soccer player Gerard Pique, being a new mother and the direction her music is headed in the future. Check out her spread below where she rocks out threads by Diane von Furstenberg, Versace and many more.
“He has his own world and that’s actually one of the healthiest things about the relationship. I know that he’s the one person who is with me not because of any interest other than the love than unites us. There’s nothing I can offer him beyond my womanhood – does that word exist in English?”
Thank God for Emma Watson. Otherwise, current child stars might think the only option in the future is to become the next Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes. The former Hermoine Granger proves the entertainment industry isn’t to blame for child stars turning to hot messes but bad parenting and not having a solid support system. That’s right Dina Lohan, I’m talking to you.
Even though she has a red hot career on her hands, the 23-year-old revealed in an interview to Rookie Mag that she’s returning to Brown University in the Fall. She attended the Ivy League for her second year, but left to focus on promoting the last chapter of the Harry Potter franchise. There were rumors (which she debunked) that her departure were caused by bullying. Clearly that’s not the case since she’s returning back to Brown to finish off her senior year.
“I really like the fact that [Brown] has a very open curriculum, that there aren’t any requirements. Really, I’ve kind of been in charge of my own education since I started out on ‘Potter’ when I was 9 or 10, and I liked that I could design my own major if I wanted to, and I could take independent studies if I wanted to on subjects that weren’t necessarily in the curriculum. I did an independent study on the psychology and philosophy of how and why we fall in love, which was awesome.” – Emma Watson
It’s so nice to see a young Hollywood starlet that is not only pretty and talented, but who is also intelligent and full of class and grace. Good for her and all the girls who admire her. She is the definition of a good role model, don’t you think? Just in case you missed it, I posted her recent editorial in W Magazine snapped by Michael Thompson. She looks absolutely stunning.
