Gerard Butler & Jennifer Aniston Do ‘W’ Magazine

'Ex' files

Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston, rumored lovers and co-stars in the upcoming new film Bounty Hunter, are featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of W magazine. Here is our first look at their coverphoto and some deets about the accompanying coverstory:

Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler have laughed off reports that they’re romantically involved, but the “Bounty Hunter” costars sure look cozy on the cover of W magazine’s April issue. Shot on a ranch about 45 minutes outside of Los Angeles in mid-January, the 13-page pictorial featuring Butler and Aniston, both 40, consists of seven photographs by celeb shutterbug Steven Klein. Ironically, Klein also shot W’s infamous July 2005 cover featuring Brad Pitt — who had then-recently separated from Aniston — playing house with Angelina Jolie. For the April cover, on which hunky Scottish actor Butler wraps his arms around Aniston, the actress tapped into her inner fashionista and wore an Alberta Ferretti silk chiffon dress, Carine Gilson Lingerie Couture’s silk bra and silk lace briefs, Stella McCartney garters and Lanvin shoes. Total retail value for her outfit? $3,800! As for the inside pictorial, it’s called “Speed Trap: Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler do a little role playing in the searing heat of the California desert where damsels aren’t always in distress and lawmen sometimes break the rules.” Hmmm … role playing?

Yeah, yeah … they’re just friends. Whatever. And you know … these pics are hot and all but their Bounty Hunter movie still looks terrible. To be honest, I have zero interest in seeing their film. But, I wouldn’t mind checking out one more photo from this W magazine photospread … More »

Adam Lambert Does ‘Flaunt’ Magazine

Shady, Shady

American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert is featured in the new issue of Flaunt magazine modeling various pairs of whacky sunglasses … behold:


I gotta say … I like these photos. While the glasses are quite ridiculous, Glambert wears them well. There’s a nice edge to these photos without his usual need to go overboard. If his photospreads were more like this and less like THIS then I think I’d be more of a fan. He’s on the right path with these photos. What do y’all think?

Sean Hayes Does ‘The Advocate’ Magazine

"I was never in, as they say. Never."

In what will very likely come as a surprise to NO ONE ON EARTH, actor Sean Hayes — known for his flamboyantly gay character Jack McFarland on Will & Grace — has finally come out of the closet (as it were) on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of The Advocate magazine. The Advocate hails Hayes‘s coverstory as “the interview you’ve waited 12 years to read” but I don’t think it’s quite that dramatic. At the very least, I am pleased that Sean Hayes finally feels comfortable with himself to open up about who he is with the rest of the world:

Just Jack just came out. Four years after ending his run as Will & Grace’s scene-stealing sidekick, Sean Hayes has confirmed the long-swirling rumors of his sexuality by proudly taking this month’s cover of The Advocate. “I am who I am,” the 39-year-old Emmy winner told the magazine. “I was never in, as they say. Never.” As for why Hayes waited so long to speak so candidly about his personal life, well, there’s one simple reason: It was—and despite his sudden forthcomingness, remains—nobody’s business. “I believe that nobody owes anything to anybody,” he said. “Nobody owes anything to anybody. You are your authentic self to whom and when you choose to be, and if you don’t know somebody, then why would you explain to them how you live your life?” And despite his previous reluctance to go on record about his personal life, Hayes still rightly feels he has done more than his part for the community. “I feel like I’ve contributed monumentally to the success of the gay movement in America, and if anyone wants to argue that, I’m open to it. You’re welcome, Advocate.”

Tori Amos Does ‘What?!’ Magazine

"If we continue to abuse Earth & her Earth Law she will reject us from her surface"

Musical goddess Tori Amos is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of the UK publication What?! which is edited and published by Tori‘s longtime BFF and stylist Karen Binns. Here is Tori‘s beautiful and very cool coverphoto fro What?! magazine:

On the cover of this issue we have my long-time friend and sista Tori Amos, which I guess speaks for itself. She is one of the most insanely attractive people of our time: singer, songwriter, producer and a true Goddess. Knowing and hanging out with Tori is like flying on a silver carpet with candied apples and red wine. She has been an inspiration to my creative being for the last 17 years. Tori is the true channeler of our times, her success is not from the size of her wardrobe but from the spirit of her blood. Her Goddess is always on tap. She was born with that ‘thing’ you just can’t purchase, manipulate or steal – it’s original without a price. Not forgetting to mention her dedication to her charity/hotline RAINN – Rape, Absue, and Incest National Network (1-800-656-HOPE, rainn.org).

I love that Tori and Karen are working together on this magazine photospread because they truly work very well together. This cover photo looks very cool all negative-like but wait until you see it in positive color along with a couple other photos from this issue of What? magazine — after the jump … More »

Taylor Swift Does ‘Elle’ Magazine

Confesses that she still finds Taylor Lautner "hot"

Taylor Swift, in all her curly hair glory, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Elle magazine … BUT, for the accompanying photospread, Taylor let the fabulous Elle stylists flatten out her hair for a really chic look. In addition to showing off her stylish new look, Taylor also opens up to the mag about what she really thinks about her ex-paramour Taylor Lautner:

Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner are no longer an item – but the country music sensation still thinks her Valentine’s Day costar is something special. In Elle magazine’s April issue, Swift is asked who she thinks is hot, and she’s shy about her answer: “Um, well …Taylor Lautner.” The two Taylors casually dated last year before calling it quits in late December. No word, however, on whether Swift will use their time together as fodder for future songs, though she admits her love life often fuels her writing. “A letdown is worth a few songs,” she says. “A heartbreak is worth a few albums.” Swift, 20, also shares the difficulties that come with her celebrity status. “I’ve had countless opportunities to do some really bad things,” she says. “And then people start combing through everything I do trying to find the next mistake and misperception, which leads to more scrutiny.” The Nashville darling also admits the constant media spotlight creates extra challenges that she has no control over. “Like, if I go to a bar, even if I’m not drinking, who’s to say that a source isn’t going to say that I was doing something I shouldn’t have been doing?” she continues. “So it’s not only about your own moral compass, but the moral compasses of other people that you don’t know.”

Ahhh … you stay a good girl, Taylor Swift … you can do it. Ok … so let’s get to those photos, shall we? After the jump, check out an alternate Elle magazine coverphoto and see some photos from her fabulous photospread … More »

Billy Corgan Talks To ‘Rolling Stone’ About Jessica Simpson & The H1N1 Vaccine

"My goal in life is to love whoever I think is worth loving"

Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan, who has reportedly been canoodling with Jessica Simpson lately, is featured in a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine (which features US Olympic Gold-Medalist Shaun White on the cover) wherein he talks a bit about Jessica, his band and (among other things) his spiritual beliefs. Here are a few preview excerpts from his RS interview:

Here are the first two sentences of Rolling Stone’s first Billy Corgan feature in a decade: Unless you count what he’s done to his career, Billy Corgan has never attempted suicide. Until recently, there were plenty of mornings when he’d wake up to a stark choice: “Go eat breakfast, or go kill yourself.” When Rolling Stone met with Corgan in Los Angeles in early February, the Smashing Pumpkins founder had a lot to say about a very rough 10 years. “There’s a lot of days where you feel forgotten,” Corgan says at one point. In a soul-baring, wide-ranging interview, Corgan discusses the idiosyncratic spiritual beliefs that saved him from suicidal depression (including his association with a vintage hippie cult called Source Family); opens up for the first time about his 2009 split with drummer Jimmy Chamberlin (Corgan says he fired him); reveals his father’s heroin addiction (his dad was arrested two years ago with a needle still in his arm); says that he “loves” Jessica Simpson; and much more.

Corgan on His Critics:
“Do I belong in the conversation about the best artists in the world? My answer is yes, I do,” he says. “I’ve been too productive for too long, and despite what anybody wants to strip away from me, I am influential. I am. So all the Pitchforks in the world can try to strip me of every ounce of dignity, but I belong.”

On the Pumpkins’ Breakup:
“Rather than break up the band, what I should have done is chuck James [Iha] out,” Corgan says. “I should have just said to Jimmy [Chamberlin], ‘You go to rehab, and we’ll continue, and James, get the fuck out of here.’ Instead, I fell on my sword for James, for what I thought was a friend.”

On His Spiritual Beliefs:
Corgan subscribes to the fashionable idea that we’re building to a cataclysm, or at least a major vibrational shift, in 2012; he wonders what was really in the H1N1 vaccine; he fears that the United States is headed toward a Soviet Union-style economic collapse… But when pressed on details, he backs off: “I don’t want to be a dead hero,” he says.

On “Loving” Jessica Simpson:
“If I go, ‘Oh, we’re just friends,’ then it’s like, ‘Did they go out, did he dump her or she dump him, what happened?’ It has nothing to do with any of that. Sometimes people just like being around each other, and good things come out of that. My goal in life is to love whoever I think is worth loving, and I think if people knew her like I knew her, they would love her like I do. It’s really simple.”

Oh man … a bit delusional, totally power-hungry, somewhat paranoid and he prolly really loves Jessica Simpson … yep, sounds like Billy Corgan. I’m curious to read the full text of this interview with Rolling Stone magazine. With Courtney Love back on the scene again, you knew it was only a matter of time before Billy wanted a piece of the limelight. I’m afraid that 2010 is gonna be the new 1996.

Megan Fox Does British ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ Magazine

"I can never have sex with someone that I don't love, ever."

Megan Fox is featured on the cover and in the pages of the British version of Harper’s Bazaar magazine wherein her coverstory interview Megan not only reveals that she has only had sex with 2 men but that she couldn’t dream of having sex unless she was in love with her partner. HMMM. Who knew? Here is Megan‘s Bazaar coverphoto and some excerpts from her interview:

Sex symbol Megan Fox has two lovers. Not two at the same time. The 23-year-old Transformers star says she’s only slept with two different people – ever. So does this mean Fox isn’t the vixen she appears to be? “I’ve only been with two men my entire life, my childhood sweetheart and [current beau] Brian [Austin Green],” she tells Harper’s Bazaar U.K. “I can never have sex with someone that I don’t love, ever. The idea makes me sick.” Fox says she isn’t a fan of casual hook-ups, either. “I’ve never even come close to having a one-night stand,” she tells the magazine. To further perpetuate the image of purity, the actress says she has embraced her role as stepmother to Green’s son Kassius. “I am a stepmother to the fullest extent,” she says. “I have looked after Kassius since he was three and he has no memory of life without me. For some reason, no one wants to look at me that way, but I am responsible [for him] and I’ve never struggled with that, from bedtime stories to the school run.”

To be honest … this is a surprise to me. It’s easy to understand how someone who is as sexy as Megan Fox is (who, incidentally, has made a career out of selling that sexiness) would reveal this information like this. It’s not that I don’t believe her … it’s just that it’s a surprise. It’s also nice to hear that she takes her role as “stepmother” to Brian Austen Green‘s son very seriously. Mebbe she is more mature than I gave her credit for. After the jump, check out a few of Megan‘s photos from this Harper’s Bazzar shoot … More »

Shaun White Does ‘Rolling Stone’ Magazine

The 2-time Olympic Gold Medalist channels his inner Jimi Hendrix

Shaun White, the US Olympian who is lovingly known as The Flying Tomato, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine. As you may recall, White graced the RS cover 4 years ago after he won his first Olympic Gold Medal so it is only natural that RS would want to put him back on the cover this month after having won his second Gold Medal. Here is Shaun‘s Rolling Stone coverphoto along with excerpts from his interview:

Shaun White has revolutionized snowboarding, won the big gold in Vancouver and lit his snowboard aflame, Hendrix-style, on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone, joining an elite club of athletes to appear on our cover not once, but twice. And as the focused, business savvy White tells it, a lot of his recent success on the half-pipe and off can be attributed to a new addition to his life: “Getting into music has changed my personality and my way of doing things,” he reveals to RS writer Vanessa Grigoriadis. “I”m far more open now.” White, who began snowboarding at six and went pro at 13, has recently returned to one of his early loves — skateboarding — but he does more shredding on one of his three Les Pauls. Jimi Hendrix, Guns n’ Roses and Led Zeppelin are in regular rotation; “Whole Lotta Love” is his favorite-ever song. “I think guitar is the best thing in the world,” he says. “It’s the only thing where no matter what I do, I can’t do it all myself.” The 23-year-old White is a bit of a loner, though. He practices his sport solo on a $500,000 private half-pipe Red Bull built him in Colorado and is known to march to the beat of his own disciplined drummer. While fellow competitors gather to watch snowboard or skate videos in their spare time, he opts out (”I’d rather do it, not watch it,” he explains). Olympic teammate Louie Vito even tried to unnerve him a bit by blasting Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the U.S.A.” in the van while White was setting his mental stereo to rock & roll.

This new issue of Rolling Stone should be on newsstands now so all y’all snowboarding fans can rush out and get a copy. I have to say … I like Shaun White. The kid seems so down-to-Earth and there is no question of his talent. I think he does the US proud at the Winter Olympics. After the jump, check out 2 more photos from Shaun White‘s Rolling Stone photoshoot … More »

More Photos From Lindsay Lohan’s ‘Purple Fashion’ Magazine Photoshoot

Holy Moly

Last month we learned that Lindsay Lohan, doing her best Jesus Christ, was featured on the cover of the new issue of Purple Fashion magazine and today, almost a month later, we finally get to see some photos from the mag’s photospread. I’m certain y’all have been waiting on pins and needles, yes? While the photos aren’t anything very revolutionary, they are pretty sexy … er, and somewhat sacrilegious?


Granted, Lindsay seems happy to bare a breast or buttock whenever asked but I don’t hate these photos. Okay, I hate the ever-present cigarette but these aren’t the worst photos ever. The girl is just so erratic … it’s like she doesn’t know what she wants to be. I hope she figures it out soon, for her sake. It’s not like she can make a career out of throwing liquid products at the paparazzi (despite what she may think). Forgetting that this is Lindsay Lohan (and everything that that entails), what do you think of these pics?
