Oprah Winfrey shows off her real hair for the first time!

For the first time ever, Oprah is gracing the cover of her magazine, O, with her hair in it’s natural state. In September’s “Makeover Issue”, Winfrey opens up in her column, “What I Know For Sure”, about her hair and the major role it plays in the expression of “self”.

Winfrey writes that wearing her hair naturally – as she often does on weekends and on vacation – makes her feel unencumbered and that she once wanted to just cut it all off. “I wanted to wear it close-cropped a la Camille Cosby but her husband Bill convinced me otherwise. ‘Don’t do it,’ he said. ‘You’ve got the wrong head shape and you’ll disappoint yourself.’ I took his advice.” Although, never one to shy away from a style update, Winfrey is a firm believer that changing your hairstyle can change what we see and feel is possible. “I even notice a change in my dogs when they get their summer cuts: they’re friskier and livelier, feeling more themselves once the weight of the hair is released.”

After all of makeovers that she’s done in the magazine and on TV, Oprah stands firm that the only makeovers that are maintained are “those in which something inside the receiver clicks, aligning with that which is being received. The only way to real transformation is through the mind.”

Miranda Kerr’s Vogue cover: Good or Bad?

I found Miranda Kerr’s new cover of Turkey’s Vogue, and my immediate thought was ‘meh, she’s looked better’. Huffington Post took it a bit further, and really went off on how bad she looks. What do you think? Is it really that bad?

On a scale from one to never, how often does Miranda Kerr look bad?

Yet we may have found one rare moment where the Aussie model appears less than perfect. (It’s probably because of the strange angle and odd lighting, but still.) Kerr posed for the August 2012 issue of Vogue Turkey, sporting dramatic wide-legged pants and a deeply cut top on the cover.

Lensed by Sofia & Mauro, the cover shot is one of Miranda’s odder ones: instead of admiring her lovely face, we’re given a perfect view straight up her nose. Her linebacker shoulders aren’t helping the matter.

It’s not our least favorite Miranda cover — that honor goes to her Haute Muse coverfrom December 2011 — but we generally prefer when we can see the model’s face… not just the underside of her chin.

Katy Perry reveals how she stays slim on the road!

Katy Perry has one of Hollywood’s hottest bodies! How does the singer stay in such great shape – even while on the road, touring?

“When I was on the road, I liked to have a light soup, a piece of grilled chicken and some quinoa with grilled asparagus for dinner,” the “Teenage Dream” singer, 27, tells PEOPLE. “I always need my daily vitamins and I loved fresh-pressed juices and coconut water. I also love snacks, but pick healthier options like veggies and hummus, tangerines or Popchips.”

Speaking of Popchips, Perry has just been named the spokesperson for the healthy snack, shortly after she Tweeted about the product and was approached by the brand.

“They taste great and don’t make me feel guilty about them afterwards,” she says, adding that BBQ is her favorite flavor.

“Eating healthy is so important because I can’t afford to get sick,” Perry says. “When I was on the road, it was very important to eat a balanced meal and to make sure my energy was up for every two-hour show.”

Aside from eating right, the pop star says she feels the best about her body when she gets into “a routine of waking up early, starting my day with a workout, meditating and getting fresh air.”

As for those workouts, Perry doesn’t hit the gym.

“I love being outdoors,” she says. “I prefer to go on hikes or ride my bike.”

I love Popchips (except the jalapeno ones – those are nasty!), BBQ is my favorite.
