Jada Pinkett Smith lands half the cover of Redbook Magazine!

Anyone else find it odd that Jada Pinkett Smith is having to share the cover with all this other random stuff? She couldn’t get her own cover? Looks like they’re just squeezing her on there!

In the interview she talks about Will Smith again. I understand she probably gets asked in every interview about him – but I’m getting tired of hearing her talk about how great her marriage is. Anyhoo, here are some clips from the interview:

On why she would ever leave her husband, Will Smith:
“What is the thing that Will could do to make me not love him? That would make me abandon him? I can’t think of one. I’m sorry. Except if he did something bad to the kids – now we’ve got a problem.”

On how they find special moments in everyday life:
“We tend to find magic in the mundane. Picking Willow up from her girlfriend’s house at 9:30PM, and enjoying that ride together, then stopping at 7-Eleven to get some ice cream as a family.”

On not being interested in reality shows and tabloids:
“I have been affected by gossip and I know people who have been too. I’ve seen marriages destroyed by gossip. It is cruel. At the end of the day, all that matters is: Do you love what you see when you look in the mirror? That is it, baby.”

On producing The Queen Latifah Show (premiering Sept 16th on CBS):
“It will be a cross between Oprah and Ellen – not serious but heartfelt…to help execute this idea for such an amazing artist is really pleasing. I’m able to be creative on a whole different level.”

Amy Adams lands the cover of Elle UK, looks amazing!

Amy Adams lands the Elle UK cover, and I think she looks gorgeous. Different, but beautiful, nonetheless. Amy is promoting her new role in ‘Man of Steel.’ The actress takes on the role of Lois Lane opposite Henry Cavill’s Superman.

Anyway, in the new issue of Elle, Amy opens up about her insecurities, being an actress and Superman!

After filming Catch Me If You Can: “I choked. I felt this pressure to suddenly be this level of actress that I wasn’t confident enough to be. I did a series of really bad auditions, I let the nerves get the best of me. And the couple of years after that it was, ‘I can’t do this. I’m not strong enough to continue with this level of rejection’. It was, ‘What am I going to do with my life?’ I was staring down 30. I was lost, confused.”

Insecurities: “Being an actress hasn’t made me insecure. I was insecure long before I declared I was an actress. I like not being noticed. It has been a struggle because I love performing, but if I’m in a group of people and someone has a bigger personality I’m like ‘Go ahead, and have fun!’ It looks like a lotta work.” CONTINUE READING….

Check out Taylor Swift’s NEW fragrance!

In the celebrity fragrance world (who DOESN’T have their own fragrance?), Taylor Swift is a rather huge success, believe it or not. She has two popular fragrances already under her belt, ‘Wonderstruck,’ and ‘Wonderstruck Enchanted.’ Apparently she’s releasing another fragrance, this one is called ‘Taylor by Taylor Swift.’ Original. The bottle comes complete with it’s own pearl necklace. Awwwww yeah.

Between the world tours, Keds partnership, awards show sweeps and Instagramming her cat, we don’t know how Taylor Swift finds time to come out with new fragrances.

And yet, she does. The singer follows up her Wonderstruck and Wonderstruck Enchanted scents with Taylor by Taylor Swift, a scent which Swift calls “a mix of a lot of things: It’s sweet, it’s sophisticated, it draws you in. It’s really my way of translating classic, yet modern, into a perfume.”

Swift says that each of her fragrances has reflected a time in her life, so this one is a little more grown up. “My first two fragrances were more about fairytales,” she says, “but this fragrance is more about my own style, so I wanted the name to be more personal.” CONTINUE READING >> MORE!

Check out Gwyneth Patlrow’s new Hugo Boss ads!

Gwyneth Paltrow was interviewed last week to promote the new Hugo Boss fragrance, Boss Jour Pour Femme, which she represents. Hugo Boss loves them some Gwyneth. They were quoted as saying “Gwyneth Paltrow embodies hard work, femininity and sophistication. She is a woman that has so many different roles, each and every day. From being an actor to being a mother, a writer and a businesswoman.” Wow. Who knew?

Anyway, here’s what Gwyneth had to say about Boss:

“I have had a really good experience working for Boss, and I always say this, but it really is such a perfect job when you have kids. I can only really do one film a year now because of my family and how it all works out, so it’s so nice for me to be able to work for a great company and, you know, I’m going to Spain next week for two days so I still get to travel and meet really interesting people and have a work interaction. But it’s not like I am out of the house for three months,” added Paltrow at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel here ahead of the official launch in Valencia, Spain, this week.

Paltrow added that she is something of a collector of fragrances. “I am one of those people who have a whole closet full of perfume. I love it; I have always loved it and have always had a wardrobe full of scent,” she said, admitting to having at least a hundred in her possession.

“I think that Jour is the perfect name for it — it’s very uplifting,” she said of the new scent. And uplifting may be just what she needs given her regular morning routine. “I wake up at 7 a.m., I get [the kids] fed, and I get them dressed in their uniforms, any bits of homework are finished,” Paltrow explained. “I take them to school. She [Apple, now 9] gets dropped off at 8:25 a.m., and he [Moses, now 7] gets dropped off at 8:45 a.m., so we have a croissant together in his school dining room and we do reading together. Then I go home and I work for one hour on all the e-mails that come in overnight from L.A. Then I exercise from about 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Then I work on Goop [the digital media and e-commerce company she founded] pretty much the rest of the day until I pick up my kids and then they have various activities.”

Oh Gwen.
