It appears that Justin Timberlake didn’t get the memo about Russia’s anti-gay stance. Given the fact he spent the better part of his youth with the homosexual that is Lance Bass, you’d think he would’ve declined appearing on the cover of a Russian publication. Both Andy Cohen and Wentworth Miller have canceled appearances due to the country’s “gay propaganda” law.
I’m willing to give the “Mirrors” singer the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps, he agreed and posed for the cover try and inside editorial before Putin’s disgusting law came into effect. I will say though, that the 32-year-old looks pretty fly on the cover. Check out more photos below.
There hasn’t been a day this entire week on the site without a Lady Gaga post. Might as well keep the streak alive with another one about the “Applause” singer.
Last year, Gaga graced the cover of Vogue’s coveted September issue. This September, she finds herself on another publication’s cover, or should I say covers. V Magazine tapped Miss Germanotta for four covers. Whether she’s serving Chrissie Hynde fierceness in a sequined bolero or wearing a Versace paperclip dress, girlfriend is givin’ it. Gaga once again enlisted the dynamic photographing duo of Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin to snap her in looks styled by her new fashion director Brandon Maxwell.
It’s definitely been a busy week for Mother Monster. From dealing with the leak of her new single, to hitting gay hotspots in West Hollywood to film the lyric video or just hitting the town in her clown makeup, the 27-year-old has been one busy drag queen ;) Check out all the covers below and weigh in on which one is your favorite.
As hot as all these guys are with their shirts off, I couldn’t justify dedicating a separate post for each. So, you’re getting two (or should I say four) for the price of one.
To promote his new film Kick-Ass 2, Aaron Taylor-Johnson shows off his kick-ass abs for Men’s Health UK. The 23-year-old English actor talks about his brutal training to get in tip top shape for his role. Job well done. Dude looks hot as hell as a result of all the sweat and grunt work.
On Being A Gym Virgin
“Only recently have I been introduced to the gym and heavy weightlifting and things like that. Before that, when I grew up I just did a lot of gymnastics and dance. I had more of an athletic background but nothing where I was in the gym or using any kind of weights.”
Moving on… If you’re not a teen girl or a fan of X Factor, you probably don’t know who Emblem3 is. Luckily for you, I’m both a teen girl and a viewer of the FOX show. To kick off their first tour, opening for Selena Gomez’s Stars Dance Tour, the trio channeled Justin Bieber in their Vancouver hotel. They posed naked with only musical instruments covering their naughty bits. Check out both photos below.
With a couple of movies to promote, James Marsden is on the studio-mandated publicity tour. One of the stops include opening up to OUT magazine about his career and good looks. Yup, his looks. The 39-year-old actor (can you believe he turns 40 next month) knows he has a handsome model exterior but maintains there lies a “drama nerd with a clever plan” underneath. I’m sorry… I don’t attend pity parties ;)
Let’s call a spade, a spade. Cam and Mitchell weren’t enamored by his nerdy side when Marsden guest starred on Modern Family. It was his abs and smoldering bedrooms eyes for sure. His cheekbones were probably also the reason why he was cast as John F. Kennedy in The Butler. Can you imagine him as Richard Nixon? NOT!!!
Inside the September 2013 issue, on sale August 20, Marsden shows off his rugged hotness in clothes styled by Grant Woolhead. Check out his editorial snapped by Matthias Vriens-McGrath below, along with a few memorable quotes from the accompanying interview, including his thoughts on why he turned down Magic Mike.
“I know I have a face like a model. But I’m actually just a goofy drama nerd underneath.”
You’d think with Rush hitting theaters on September 20, the talk would center more about the car racing flick than playing Thor. After all, the Marvel Comics sequel doesn’t open til November. There’s plenty of time to promote that film. I suppose though, since Chris Hemsworth and Thor are more synonymous, Esquire magazine is hoping that’ll sell more copies. They’re probably right. Check out Hemsworth’s interview below, along with photos snapped by Matthias Vriens-McGrath.
“You talk to the comic-book fans, people who’ve been there since the beginning—you know, since the sixties—and you realize the religious significance of this thing. And there is a kind of work that follows. You do your research. You listen and learn what you can. But then you let go. Eventually you’re down to it. You gotta make this guy your own.”
Before we get to the whole Paula Deen debacle, can we just take a moment to acknowledge how great Oprah Winfrey looks on the cover of O magazine this month. The 59-year-old is beyond fierce and from what I read, it wasn’t an easy task. Reportedly, that wig weighed in at 3.5 lbs. All in the name for fashion, I suppose. Anna Wintour would be proud.
While promoting her new film The Butler, Winfrey, not surprisingly, has been questioned about the Paula Deen controversy. The media mogul opened up about her disgraced friend as well as her experience in regards to racism to Entertainment Tonight on Monday. Here’s what she said.
“In the very first days I tried to reach her and then I decided to stay out of it as I saw it blowing up. In time she will be fine. For me, it all just felt kind of sad,” Winfrey revealed. She said, “I think Paula Deen was sort of used as a symbol, but I think lots of people use the [N-word] inappropriately all the time.” She explained she wanted to have a sitdown with Deen, saying, “I just really want to know what happened.”
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
