Jennifer Lopez Does ‘Glamour’ Magazine

"I like to maintain a certain sense of fantasy in my life."

Jennifer Lopez, La Diva Latina herself who is rumored to be one of the new judges on the upcoming season of American Idol, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Glamour magazine. In her coverstory interview, J. Lo talks about the level of glam she enjoys in her life even when she’s not in front of the camera … her accompanying photospread also highlights the sexy glamor in her life featuring Jenny from the Block in sexy animal print — meow! Here is our first look at J. Lo‘s new Glamour magazine coverphoto and some excerpts from her coverstory:

Jennifer Lopez has lived through everything from dress scandals to the reviews for “Gigli,” but she doesn’t regret a minute of it. Of course, as she told Glamour magazine in their September issue, she’s had some “ups and downs” like everyone else, including “super highs and some really low lows.” But she added, “I’ve been so blessed that I could never say, ‘I wish this didn’t happen.’ It’s part of who I am. There’s nothing in my life that’s so ‘ugh.’” Of course, there are some memories that may make her cringe, “but not where I’m worried about [Max and Emme] finding out,” she said. “I’ll tell them myself. No secrets from them.” Lopez, 41, had twins Max and Emme in 2008 with husband Marc Anthony, whom she married in 2004. Anthony, she said, is “a passionate person, and he’s the same way with his kids, and I love it. When it comes to all his kids, he’s mush, whatever they want.” He’s probably mush when it comes to what Lopez wants as well – the actress said she doesn’t slack off in the glamour department just because she happens to be at home. “I like to maintain a certain sense of fantasy in my life,” Lopez said, adding that yes, she is a bit like the high-fashion photo shoots readers see in magazines. “Do I have the full hair and makeup? No. But I might have the nice dress on.” It’s all about maintaining a certain state of mind, Lopez told Glamour – and the same theory applies to how to handle feelings of doubt. “If you feel in your mind you can do it, you can do it. You cannot doubt yourself. Doubt is a killer,” she said. ” You just have to know who you are and what you stand for. You can have a great mentor, a great partner, a great love in your life who gives you confidence and makes you feel great about yourself. And that’s all wonderful, but at the end of the day, if you don’t believe it, all of that means nothing.” Well, we guess we know how she feels about her qualifications to be an “Idol” judge…

Glamour got really lucky with the timing of this magazine cover, now that everyone is buzzing about the rumor that J. Lo will join American Idol as a judge, there is a lot of interest to read anything Lopez-related. I still contend that J. Lo on Idol will be a good fit … she’s just as qualified to judge the competition as Paula Abdul was and I’m certain she’ll be more lucid. But, Fox has made NO official announcement about the new judges on AI so we’re still not 100% sure that J. Lo will be on the show … what we do know is that she looks fantastic in her Glamour photospread. After the jump, check out a few photos of J. Lo in the September issue of GlamourMore »

Lindsay Lohan Does ‘Maxim’ Magazine

"This too shall pass."

Lindsay Lohan, who spent her time in jail writing a new book, is enjoying day 2 of her 90 day rehab stint at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center where she has been admitted to the Neuropsychiatric Hospital of the medical center. While Lindsay cleans up her act in rehab, the world outside continues to turn … and exploit her notoriety. A few weeks ago we learned that Lindsay Lohan posed for the cover of Vanity Fair magazine in the days leading up to the start of her jail sentence on July 20 and it was assumed that VF was the last magazine that Lindsay posed for and spoke with before going to jail. Today we learn that that is not the case … Lindsay made some time to pose for and speak with Maxim magazine as well. Here is our first look at Lindsay on the cover of Maxim and some excerpts from her coverstory interview:

Hope she looks this good after rehab! Sexy ex-con Lindsay Lohan scampered out of jail in the middle of the night yesterday and sneaked into her new home for the next three months — a locked-down rehab center in West LA. Just before going to jail two weeks ago, the troubled “Mean Girls” star posed for some sizzling snapshots for Maxim magazine, showing exactly why she’s still such a desirable commodity. Lohan told the lad mag she plans to re-devote herself to work in the next year, while mixing in some international travel. The plan is “to focus on myself and my work and to move all press on me to focus on the work I do,” Lohan said, in editions that hit newsstands a week from today. “Also, I’d like to do more work in India and travel to Malawi.”

Um … what? No. Just … no. I get that Lindsay may think that she needs to fly around the world and do charity work but I contend she needs to settle her ass down and save herself. Before she can even think about doing “more work in India and travel to Malawi” she needs to get her own damn life in order and free herself from the addictions that forced her to go to jail and rehab in the first place. I think it’s best that she keep quiet about all this philanthropy she is planning to do once she gets done with her punishment … for everyone concerned. After the jump, check out a couple photos from Lindsay‘s Maxim photospread — surprisingly, she looks pretty good — and read a few more excerpts from her interview … More »

McFly Does ‘Attitude’ Magazine

Tomfoolery

British boyband McFly are featured on the cover and in the pages of the gay UK magazine Attitude. Now, to my knowledge, none of the boys in McFly are gay but they do seem to be very fond of catering to their gay fans by appearing in gay publications as if it were no big thing. Here is McFly‘s hot new coverphoto for Attitude magazine:


I am really impressed that the boys in McFly are so at ease with themselves that they have no qualms at all about posing in a magazine like Attitude. When some celebs would shy away completely from having any association with gay publications, McFly are happy to do whatever they can for their adoring fans. If that means posing in a hawt shoot in the pages of Attitude mag, then so be it. After the jump, check out some of the photos of McFly in this new issue of AttitudeMore »

Victoria Beckham Does Turkish ‘Vogue’ Magazine

A Toast!

Victoria Beckham is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Turkish Vogue magazine which was photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth (the same woman who photographed Lindsay Lohan recently for German GQ magazine). Here is Vicki B‘s coverphoto for Turkish Vogue mag:


Now, I couldn’t find an English translation of any of the text but, really, isn’t it all about the photos anyways? It’s unclear when these photos were taken but we know that VB got herself a new weave at the end of June so it’s possible the photos are really very recent. After the jump, check out a few photos of Vicki B. in the pages of the August issue of Turkish VogueMore »

Zac Efron Does ‘Parade’ Magazine

"The first thing I do every morning is cannonball into the pool."

Zac Efron, who stars in the new film Charlie St. Cloud, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Parade magazine (which will come bundled with this Sunday’s newspaper here in the US). In his coverstory interview, Zac talks about the things he loves most about the warm Summer months among other softball topics. Here are a few photos from his Parade photospread and some excerpts from his interview:

“As soon as the days get longer and the sun hangs in the sky, I feel more alive,” says Efron, who pushes the boundaries off-camera by biking, surfing, and skateboarding. (“I’ve fallen off just about everything it’s possible to fall off of.”) Among the thrills he’s seeking this summer:

Taking a daily dip “The first thing I do every morning is cannonball into the pool. It’s the best way to wake up.”

Rooting for his favorite team Efron loves to go to L.A. Lakers basketball games, but he grew up going to Giants baseball games and would collect players’ autographs. “My dad would drive me and my brother six hours up to San Francisco, and we’d see back-to-back games.”

Enjoying an American classic “My family used to go to drive-in movies, where we’d put that little speaker inside our car to get the sound. It was always such a fun night.”

Roughing it “I really want to hit a national park this summer. I’m a big fan of Bear Grylls and Man vs. Wild. I like to backpack, filter my own water, make a fire. But I bring packaged food—I’m not setting squirrel traps.”

Making Steve Jobs even richer “I always have music on,” Efron says. “The other day, I found out my biggest expense isn’t electricity or gas—it’s iTunes. I spend way too much on music, movies, apps, and games. I’ve got to get that under control.”

Cheering on his girl “Vanessa [Hudgens] is playing Mimi in Rent at the Hollywood Bowl in August. It’s the role of a lifetime for her. The song ‘Out Tonight’ is Vanessa in a nutshell—she loves to have fun. She’s a good partner in crime.”

In all honesty, I think I’m going to have to take a pass on seeing Charlie St. Cloud. From the trailers I’ve seen, it looks way too schmaltzy for my taste. I’m all for movies that feature dead characters like Charlie‘s deceased little bro, but I prefer for them to be running thru the streets in search of brains to eat rather than playing catch in the woods. Ah well. In this interview, Zac mentions Vanessa Hudgens‘s involvement in a new production of Rent next month … and that I will be seeing. Not only is Rent one of my all-time fave musicals but I’m excited to see this new production — mainly because it is being directed by Rent Broadway alum Neil Patrick Harris. In any event, it’s a no to Charlie St. Cloud but a YES! to Rent. How about you? Are any of y’all planning to see this film?

Lindsay Lohan Will Grace The Cover Of ‘Vanity Fair’ Magazine

Plus, check out some photos from her 'Complex' magazine photospread

There is a new report going around that claims that Lindsay Lohan, the artist currently known as Inmate #2409752, will be featured on the cover and in the pages of an upcoming issue of Vanity Fair magazine. L. Lo reportedly posed for the VF cover on her birthday (July 2), ahead of her surrender to the court to start serving her 90 14 day jail sentence this week. As you may recall, on Wednesday we got to see her Complex magazine coverphoto and today we get to see a few photos from her Complex photospread:

Gossip Cop can exclusively report that shortly before Lindsay Lohan went to jail she gave Vanity Fair an interview for its October cover. We’re also told Lohan did a photo shoot in L.A. on her birthday (July 2) aboard what was once Judy Garland’s yacht. A source says the shoot by Norman Jean Roy was “amazing,” and comprises “some of the most beautiful photos of Lindsay” ever taken. Lohan was dressed in an evening gown, which covered her SCRAM bracelet, and looks like a glamorous movie star from Hollywood’s Golden Age. Of course, the article was planned some time ago, and was supposed to be tied to the September release of her film, Machete. And while our sources say there were questions after Lohan was sentenced as to whether she would still do the interview, the actress stuck to her word, even as other outlets were reportedly offering her hundreds of thousands of dollars to talk. Gossip Cop hears Lohan spoke candidly about her life, including her current legal predicament. At present, this is the only confirmed sitdown Lohan has conducted since her sentencing.

Okay … firstly, she does look great in these Complex photos. Despite all her troubles, she still manages to take a good picture every once in a while. Secondly, how lucky did Vanity Fair get by scoring a Lindsay interview right before she went to jail. Since the mag won’t be out on newsstands until September, VF will not get to enjoy the massive punch from Lindsay‘s current legal woes … but they do have the distinction of having her last pre-jail interview. Her first post-jail interview is said to be worth $1 million … as of yet, we don’t know who she will be giving that interview to. Not for nothing but, in all honesty, this jail stint has been the best thing to happen to Lindsay Lohan‘s career in ages! She should’ve went to jail a long time ago.

Lindsay Lohan Behaves In Jail, Does ‘Complex’ Magazine & Posts Her Last Tweets

L. Lo Jail Watch: Day 01

Yesterday morning Lindsay Lohan obediently turned herself in to the court so that she could begin serving her 90 day jail sentence (which, it is being reported, is believed to be whittled down to 13-15 days of actual jailtime) but amidst all the hoopla surrounding her surrender to the court, a couple of other things were going on as well. Lindsay, who will NOT be allowed to have access to a mobile phone, a computer or any other electronic device that would keep her connected to the outside world, posted her last tweets on her official Twitter account the night before she was due to surrender and begin her jail sentence. A couple of tweets were directed at her estranged and former jailbird father Michael Lohan:


And, because homegirl has got to earn some money while she’s cooling her heels in the big house, one of her last tweets was a sponsored advertisement:


She also posted some nonsense about being unfamiliar with the “booking” process, despite the fact that she was booked and mugshotted back in 2007 when she got arrested and thrown in jail the first time around. Her final tweet was a Re-Tweet of a post by Ian Somerhalder asking for help about the oil spill. I’m not sure how we will survive without having access to her daily tweet missives but I guess we’re gonna hafta find a way.

Additionally, Lindsay will spend her time in jail as a magazine covermodel. As you may recall, last week we got our first look at Lindsay on the cover of German GQ magazine. Today we get to see that, here in the US, Lindsay is featured on the cover of the new issue of Complex magazine. After the jump, check out her latest magazine cover … More »
