"Whatever you believe. Share it. I'm at a point where I'm not going to hold this in."
After successfully enduring a year of criminally bad behavior, Justin Bieber appears to be walking the straight and narrow in an attempt to clean up his image and live his life right … I guess. In a new cover story interview with Complex magazine, JB talks about host of subjects including his feelings on Christianity and religion. According to JB, it is his intent to “live like Jesus” because, he says, Jesus created a “pretty awesome template of how to love people” and, you know, that “he died for our sins” stuff. That’s not to say that The Biebs wants to BE Jesus, cuz “that would be weird”. That’s also not to say that he’s religious because he is really bothered by the “really weird stuff going on at churches” … so to be clear, he says that one can live like Jesus and not be Jesus nor go to church because, he says, “You don’t need to go to church to be a Christian. If you go to Taco Bell, that doesn’t make you a taco.” Got it? Want more? Read on. More »
From 'Anarchy' to Monarchy
Actor Charlie Hunnam is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of VMan magazine to promote his new film Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur and as you can see in the gallery presented here, he is pulling out ALL of the stops to bring us one of his best photospreads ever. With his piercing blue eyes shining through a blood-red painted cross on his face, he looks ready to RULE THE WORLD … or, at least, the hearts of people everywhere who appreciate his hotness. This issue of VMan won’t hit newsstands until September 17 but it’s nice of the magazine to share these photos with us a bit early. Yeah, this issue is deffo one that must be seen in person so I’ll be picking up a copy for sure, will you?
Flaunt magazine is featuring the queen of all things, Beyoncé, on the cover of their annual CALIFUK (California + UK) issue and as you can see in the gallery presented here, she reigns in absolute supremacy (sorry about that, QE, II). The photoshoot looks deceptively simple (just the subject, wearing minimal clothing, and a pool) but each photo is a practical masterpiece. Shot by photographer Robin Harper, Beyoncé shines beautifully in this spread. Click through the gallery to see the photos and head over to Flaunt magazine HERE to read the cover feature article. Bey is so perfect, always, it is really hard to process sometimes. Queen.
Have you all been watching HBO‘s new miniseries Show Me a Hero? If not, please get on that. Now, it may have taken me a minute to come to the conclusion that Oscar Isaac Hernández is hot, but I have now arrived. And damn. I was editing this interview one of our writers at Paste did with him, and I’m not gonna lie—when I read about his nationality (Guatemalan, Cuban and French… Lordt), a lightbulb went off and I was all, “Ohhh, is that what it is?” As in, “Is that why I’ve been trying to figure out where he came from and why I find him so ridiculously attractive, even when he’s playing former Yonkers mayor Nick Wasicsko?” So yes. Please enjoy this gallery of hotness featuring the incredibly hot Oscar Isaac. Who is hot.

Because, of course
Earlier this month, Bobbi Kristina Brown — the only begotten child of Bobby Brown and the late Whitney Houston — was laid to rest after she passed away after months in a coma, which stemmed from injuries she suffered from her bathtub drowning back in January. As you may recall, Bobbi Kristina‘s boyfriend Nick Gordon was not allowed to attend the funeral or the burial because the Brown/Houston family faults him for her death. Today we learn that Nick paid a recent visit to BK‘s gravesite so that he could be photographed by The National Enquirer for a cover story feature … for which he was reportedly paid $40,000. The National Enquirer will feature “10 dramatic photos” in their new issue, two of which are featured on their magazine cover … which you can see below. More »

BTW, Bey is only the THIRD black woman to nab a September cover
So here is a fun fact (just kidding, it’s not that fun)—only 19 black women have been featured on the cover of Vogue solo and Beyoncé just became the third black woman (after Naomi Campbell in 1989 and Halle Berry in 2010) to rock their most important cover of the year—the September issue. Naomi. Halle. Beyoncé. In 123 years of Vogue publications. So yeah, just some food for thought. And then there’s this adorable shot of Blue Ivy and Bey from Beyoncé‘s 2013 cover shoot.

Beyoncé, the queen herself, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vogue magazine … and not just any issue of Vogue but the hallowed September Issue of the world’s fashion Bible. “There is only one September Issue, and there is only one Beyoncé. Moving, morphing, leading, flaunting: such is the power of Beyoncé that just one letter tells us who she is. Margo Jefferson, pulitzer-prize winning cultural critic, explores what it takes to run the world.” Bey‘s cover story feature has yet to be released online but the first images from her spread have been released for our viewing pleasure. Photographed by Mario Testino, Beyoncé commands the cover of Vogue this month.
