The calm after the storm

Last month Glee castmembers Dianna Agron, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith created quite a stir with the racy photos they posed for in the pages of GQ magazine. For the most part, all the hoopla over the photos has died down so, GQ has released behind the scenes video from the shoot to remind us that those photos existed in the first place and to mebbe squeeze out a bit more publicity for their mag:

The vid is short but it does feature all of the photos that were published in GQ last month. If you would like another look at the cast of Glee Gone Wild, check out the video after the jump … More »

Benji & Joel Madden Do ‘Inked’ Magazine

"When I was like, 18 I got a horrible, horrible dragon on my leg."

Twin brothers and Good Charlotte bandmates, who just released their latest album Cardiology last week, are featured in the new issue of Inked magazine. In their joint interview, the Madden brothers talk about their close relationship with their fans and, of course, talk about some of the tattoos that they’ve gotten inked on their bodies. Joel professes his love for his “terrible” dragon tattoo … which Benji thinks looks more like a sea horse:

Joel talks about life changes and his newest influence: “My kids. But I don’t know that they’ve changed our music. The family has given me some different things to write about and you can hear it in some songs, and they definitely make me work harder.”

Joel talks about how he feels closer to his fans: “It’s weird how 10 years after our first record, we’re closer to our fans than we’ve ever been because of things like Twitter. WE talk to our fans every day. It’s cool. Our whole career was built off of our relationship with our fans. Back in the day I would write them letters.”

Benji compares the decision to change producers to getting a new tattoo: “If you’re going to get a tattoo and you don’t fucking like the drawing, don’t get that shit. You know? Like, you learn, as you get older. When you get tattooed you kind of learn how it works. I don’t want to laser any tattoos off — I’m not going to. So if you’re going to put a record out, you fucking better back that shit. Once it’s out there, it’s out there. So it is kind of like a tattoo. You got to go with your guy.”

Joel on his favorite tattoo: “I like a lot of my old, shitty ones because they remind me of a really good, innocent time in my life.”

The brothers on Joel’s baddest tattoo:

Joel: “When I was like, 18 I got a horrible, horrible dragon on my leg. It’s terrible but it’s awesome!”
Benji: “You mean the sea horse?”
Joel: “Whenever we’re standing around with new people comparing tattoos I’m like, ‘Oh yeah? Check this one out!’ It’s such a terrible dragon that it’s a really cool tattoo.”
Benji: “It looks like a sea horse.”

LOL! Aren’t they the best? I just love Inked magazine so much, y’all have to pick up this copy. Back in the day, in early 2006, I appeared in Inked magazine alongside the eldest Madden brother Josh.

‘Out’ Magazine Releases ‘The Out 100’ List For 2010

Honoring those who "made significant strides in the gay community" for 2010

In their yearly effort to honor “a diverse group of men and women who made significant strides in the gay community”, Out magazine has released their Out 100 list of men and women who have made meaningful advancement for the GLBT community and have revealed the people they have chosen to grace the cover of The Out 100 issue … behold:

Out, the world’s leading gay fashion and lifestyle brand, today unveiled the cover to its highly anticipated Out 100 special double issue, also the publication’s 200th issue. This year pop star and new father Ricky Martin, MSNBC news anchor Rachel Maddow, Oscar-nominated actress Julianne Moore, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir, and designer and TV star Nate Berkus host an “An Affair to Remember” as the Out 100 cover honorees. Find out who made this year’s Out 100 list at “For this year’s cover, the five honorees all reflect major breakthroughs in the profile of the LGBTQ community, including one of the most successful pop stars of all time, a leading commentator on politics and current affairs, a wildly entertaining Olympic ice skater who captured everyone’s imagination in Vancouver this year, the first openly gay male host of a daytime TV show, and the fabulous LGBT ally Julianne Moore, star of The Kids Are All Right, a boundary-pushing movie that quietly and profoundly lent legitimacy to our relationships and families,” said Aaron Hicklin, Editor in Chief of Out. Divided into three distinct sections, this year’s Out 100 features stunning imagery from photographers Larry Fink, Roger Erickson, and Jason Schmidt. Fink’s interpretation of Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball re-creates a time when gay rubbed shoulders with straight and elegance trumped intolerance. Erickson brings the spirit of the Stonewall riots to life, while Schmidt pays homage to the triumph of fame, talent, and individuality that was Studio 54.

Angelina Jolie Does ‘Vogue’ Magazine

"I'm not the best cook. Pax is a better cook than me."

Angelina Jolie, who is hard at work these days in Hungary directing her first feature film, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vogue magazine. In her accompanying interview, Ange confesses that contrary to popular belief she is NOT a superwoman capable of doing superhuman feats … in fact, there are some fairly simple things that she just can’t do well … like cook. Here is our first look at Angelina on the cover of the December issue of Vogue and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:

That Angelina Jolie is one busy working mom cannot be denied. But what about making dinner for her family of six kids and partner Brad Pitt? Does the star of the upcoming The Tourist and the UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador ever toil over a hot stove? “Sometimes,” she tells Vogue magazine for its December issue, while also admitting she’s “getting better at bacon.” But “I’m not the best cook. Pax [who turns 7 Nov. 29] is a better cook than me. Pax likes to cook. But I try to when I can. Any house that we’re in, we all chip in. But the kids are very sweet … so enthusiastic anytime I cook,” says Jolie, 35. “Especially [9-year-old"] Maddox, he’s just this little man that’s very supportive of me – it’s like he’s raised me a bit. So I cooked them all breakfast before school this morning, and he has that kind of ‘Thanks, Mom! Good job!’ ” At the dinner table: Pitt and those six little faces – and some great tales. Daughters Zahara, Shiloh and Vivienne “did some body painting,” says their mom, which explains why they’re covered in colors. And while a bulldog named Jacques is also part of the family, Jolie mentions that “someone found a lizard yesterday.” The menagerie apparently doesn’t stop there. As recounted by Jolie: “Shiloh found a dead bird, so she came in and said, ‘Can I have a dead pet?’ And I’m . . . ‘Uh-uh, I don’t think it’s healthy, honey. I think they have to put him in a box,’ and I had to run out to find, like, a taxidermy bird.” Said the proud mom: “I just worked it out for her.”

What a cute interview (click HERE to read the full online version of this interview). You just had to know that Angelina Jolie was imperfect in some way … you know, I bet Superman is a bad cook, as well. I have to say … I really love when Ange talks about her life with the kids. The dead bird story is kinda cute … if a bit creepy. It’s funny, back in Angelina‘s pre-Brad Pitt days when she was all goth she prolly would’ve advised her young daughter to wear the dead bird around her neck as an accessory. Ah, how people change over the years. After the jump, check out a few photos shot by photographer Mario Testino for Angelina‘s Vogue photospread … More »

Iman Does ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Magazine

"My secret to glamour is wigs, wigs and more wigs."

Iconic supermodel Iman, who plays host on the second season of Bravo TV‘s The Fashion Show: Ultimate Collection (which premiered last night), is featured in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Here are a couple of Iman‘s fabulous photos from her Bazaar photospread and some excerpts from her accompanying interview:

On glamour: “I believe in glamour. I am in favor of a little vanity. I don’t rely on just my genes. Looking good is a commitment to yourself and to others. Wigs, killer heels, Pilates, even fillers—whatever works for you, honey.”

On her marriage with David Bowie: “David doesn’t fight. He is English, so he just stays quiet. I’m the screamer. Then he always makes me laugh. It’s like cabaret. I keep him entertained too. I still fancy him—totally!—after all these years.” “I vowed to myself when I got married that I would cook every night. I find it very therapeutic.”

On her favorite young designer: “Alexander Wang is one of my favorites. But he is like my daughter. He is like 12.”

On whether she considers herself a New Yorker or a Somali: “Absolutely a New Yorker. I can tell you exactly when I switched. We moved downtown when Lexi was born. When 9/11 happened, 12 of our neighborhood firemen were killed. I looked around at the country that had adopted me and I became an American.”

I cannot think of another celeb on EARTH who can pose so effortlessly with an ostrich and make the dang bird look so fabulous. Iman is a legend. Truth be told, The Fashion Show was a disaster when Kelly Rowland hosted the show last year … it’s only marginally better this year and that is due to Iman‘s fabulosity. I will watch The Fashion Show all season long … if only to hear the fierce quips that will come out of Iman‘s gorgeous lips.

Naked Miranda Kerr Bares Her Baby Bump In ‘W’ Magazine

Bump Watch

Miranda Kerr, who is pregs with her first child with hubby Orlando Bloom, is featured in the new Family Issue of W magazine. In her pictorial, 6-months pregs Miranda poses completely in the nude baring more than her baby bump for all the world to see:

“For me, family is life,” says model Miranda Kerr, 27. “The decision to start one wasn’t complex at all.” Kerr, whose stealth wedding to actor Orlando Bloom this past July caught even the paparazzi off guard, was in Paris shooting a Jil Sander campaign when she found out she was pregnant. “I was wondering why I’d been so sick.” Kerr and Bloom have opted not to be told their child’s sex. “We’re keeping it a surprise,” she says. Though her modeling stock has risen (she’s currently fronting campaigns for Jil Sander, Prada, and Victoria’s Secret), Kerr has no issues with putting her professional ambitions on hold. “My career has been wonderful, but it’s not my life. I don’t feel pressure to get back to work.” As for the long-term future, the Aussie native has conceived a rustic plan for domestic bliss: “My goal involves a hammock, a vegetable patch, and a solar-powered house. And I hope to eventually get there.”

Pregnant women are so beautiful, there is no question, so you gotta love that Miranda seems to have no qualms about posing in a completely natural (yet, certainly airbrushed) way for this issue of W magazine. This Family Issue is devoted to the wide range of different family configurations … from single parents like Usher to adoptive parents like Katherine Heigl to totally unshy parents-to-be like Miranda Kerr. Click HERE to see the uncensored NSFW image of Miranda‘s nekkidness in this issue of W magazine to see what’s hidden behind the PITNB star.

Eminem Does ‘Rolling Stone’ Magazine

"I’m just now finding my footing."

Eminem, Detroit’s own maestro of Hip Hop, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine. In his coverstory interview, Em talks about how difficult it was for him to successfully battle his demons and opens up a bit about his past and the things he endured during the darkest parts of his life. Here is our first look at Em‘s RS coverphoto and some excerpts from his accompanying coverstory interview:

Contributing editor Josh Eells sits down with Eminem at his Detroit recording studio for a revealing interview about the rapper’s long battle with prescription drugs, his difficulties with women and the pain of being abandoned by his father at six months old, as well as his incredible musical comeback and his quest to score the highest score in the history of Donkey Kong. Here’s an excerpt from the extensive interview.

Do you think it’s hard for you to trust women?
I have trust issues. With women, friends, whatever. You always wonder what their real motives are. I’ve got a small circle of friends, and it’s a lot of the same friends I’ve known forever. Right now, that works for me. I came out of some difficult things these past couple of years. I kind of feel like I’m just now finding my footing. So I want to make sure that’s secure before I go out and do anything else. I need to keep working on myself for a while.

What about your love life? Do you date?
Not really. As far as going out, like dinner and a movie—I just can’t. Going out in public is just too crazy. I mean, I’d like to be in a relationship again someday. Who doesn’t? It’s just hard to meet new people, in my position.

Ugh … as you can see, Rolling Stone hasn’t made much of the interview available for preview before this issue hits newsstands. I have to say, I’m very curious to read the whole thing … primarily because I have to hear the Donkey Kong story from Eminem himself. RS has made available one of the photos from Eminem‘s photospread. Check out one of those photos, after the jump … More »

David & Victoria Beckham Do ‘Hello!’ Magazine

“Sometimes people throw shit at us but we get through it."

Happily marrieds David and Victoria Beckham are featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Hello! magazine … and in the couple’s joint-interview, they open up about about their unfailing love for one another in an attempt to fight back against claims of marital problems between them. Here is our first look at Les Beckhams on the cover of the new issue of Hello! magazine along with some excerpts from their coverstory interview:

In a world exclusive joint interview with HELLO! magazine, David and Victoria Beckham have hit back at the critics who questioned their relationship after an escort girl made false claims against them. “We’re soul mates,” Victoria said. “Sometimes people throw shit at us but we get through it. You deal with it, or you don’t. You go into a marriage knowing there are going to be ups and downs. We’re in the public eye so we have more to deal with than most. We accepted that years ago. It’s just about us and the family.” The couple also tell HELLO! how they keep their romance alive. “We always make time for each other,” David said. “We have a ‘date night’ every Wednesday.” Victoria adds: “We catch up on what we’ve missed on the TV. We watch Keeping up with the Kardashians, and we love Melanie B’s new reality show.” The Beckhams also talked about how they love their life in their adopted homeland of Los Angeles, and reveal how their three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, are settling in – even learning sign language so they can communicate with a deaf friend. However, they immediately ask to be taught some rather inappropriate words! “Of course the first thing Cruz, who is five, wanted to learn was how to say ‘I have wind’ and the ‘s’ word,” Victoria reveals. “He also wanted to know what other swear words were!” Romeo, meanwhile, has just received his first mobile phone – and has been using it to send messages at inappropriate times. “We got a message from Tana Ramsay saying ‘We don’t mind but Romeo’s been phoning the house in the middle of the night asking to speak to our kids,” Victoria explains. In addition, David and Victoria reveal the nicknames they have for their three children and how they tease their dad about his English accent. Victoria also talks about her style icons, and explains how she deals with the celebrity clients who are queuing up to wear her fashion designs.

I can’t even remember the last time that Posh and Becks gave a joint magazine interview but in light of the recent allegations of infidelity, I can understand why the couple would decide to go on the record together to set things straight. This Hello! magazine interview sounds like a deffo must read … I will DEFFO be picking up this copy of Hello! which is on newsstands now.

Conan O’Brien Talks To ‘Playboy’ Magazine

Sorry, y'all ... no accompanying nekkid pictorial

Conan O’Brien, who will premiere his new TBS late night talk show Conan on Monday November 8, gives the featured interview in the new issue of Playboy magazine. While Conan‘s appearance in Playboy does NOT include any nudie pics of the ginger comic, it does feature quite a bit of that Conan O’Brien charm that has endeared him to millions anxiously awaiting his return to late night TV. Here are a few excerpts from Conan‘s new Playboy magazine interview:

“I’m going for eight months on the air. All I want to do is break my Tonight Show record,” says Conan O’Brien when talking about goals for his new show in Playboy’s December Interview (on newsstands and available HERE on Friday, November 12). “I’m a guy who wants to say I did more push-ups today than I did the day before, and the good news is, I did only one push-up yesterday.” After losing one of the most coveted jobs in comedy when NBC pulled the plug on Late Night, Conan went out with class by thanking the network, along with his staff, friends, family, and fans. It seems that his good spirits and positive attitude bought him many additional inquisitive viewers (ratings skyrocketed during his last few shows), an unofficial Facebook group dedicated to “Coco,” and the greatest prize of all—his new show Conan, premiering Monday, November 8 on TBS. Playboy Contributing Editor Rob Tannenbaum caught up with O’Brien at his Burbank office, so new that it had little more than a desk, a few chairs, and a poster of his sidekick Andy Richter. “When I commented on the lack of décor,” Tannenbaum says, “Conan’s answer was, ‘Everything in this office is designed to come down quickly, in case there’s trouble and we need to get out of here.’” In the Interview, O’Brien talks about the shortcomings of his Irish heritage, paying people to watch his show, his need to please, and his old NBC cohort Jay Leno. Following are select quotes from the Interview:

On his impassionate parting Tonight Show speech, and whether he is bitter after the whole experience: “I wanted to end on an optimistic note. I thought it could end up being the most important moment of my television career. It still could be…I have had too many good things happen in my career to end on any kind of bitter note. I’m just saying this to you; we’re alone in this office, and I don’t have to say this: I am an incredibly fortunate person…And as crazy as this sounds, my career with NBC was overwhelmingly positive until this…The entertainment business has an amazing way of turning really lucky people into bitter, angry, rage-filled, jealous, resentful wretches who can’t believe they got screwed. Some things have worked out great for me, some things haven’t. You keep going…Doing those last Tonight Shows was a high. A lot of people tuned in, and I was really proud of what I was able to make in that situation. So this was good, this was bad, this was ugly, this was beautiful, this was f*cked-up, this was sublime. It was cherry, it was vanilla, it was frogurt, it was mocha chocolate chip.”

On how close his new studio is to Jay Leno’s, and whether or not they bump into each other: “We’re in Burbank, and NBC is not far away…I think if I worked out and had help with hydraulics we could hit it with a tennis ball. [Leno is] a guy you hear coming a long way off. There aren’t many three-cylinder engines in California that run on peat moss. And we hang out in different circles, so I don’t think we’ll be bumping into each other.”

On inviting Jay Leno on his new show as a guest: “He can come as the musical guest, because that I want to see. No one knows he has an operatic range [sings as Jay Leno]. No, there are certain things I will not do, regardless of the price.”
