Miley Cyrus lands the June cover of Elle!

First of all – can you believe we’re already looking at the JUNE 2013 issue of anything? Half the year gone?? I mean, I know it’s still technically April, but c’mon now. Time is flying by so much quicker these days (and by these days, I mean these days as an almost-36-year-old).

Anyhoo…. Miley Cyrus, 20,  lands the June cover of Elle UK, and inside the magazine she opens up about her engagement to fiance Liam Hemsworth.  I’m not sure when Elle UK sat down with Miley for the interview, but I’m thinking it was long before the two had reportedly split. Rumor has it Liam was caught cheating with January Jones. Even though the two were caught sneaking out of Chateau Marmont together, I’m surprised how much attention it’s getting. Meaning – I’m starting to think they actually DID cheat. That January Jones. Seriously.

Being engaged to Liam: “We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed. But we keep our relationship low-key and don’t talk about it any more.”

On being private: “We were too nice to the world and gave them too much insight — into my life and my puppies and my house –- and I just don’t feel they get that privilege any more. Like on my Twitter, I’m much more . . . not conservative, but you don’t see a picture of my dogs. You don’t get that personal stuff any more.”

There’s more to her than good looks: “A star is someone who doesn’t have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power. Sex does sell, but you have to find a way that’s not just showing your tits. I don’t want to be a glorified model. They just walk on stage and it’s all about their clothes — or lack of clothes.”

Hollyweird: “This isn’t like any other place. Everything is meant to be attractive, from the people on the sidewalks to the gold fire hydrants in Beverly Hills.”

On fame: “I feel like Rapunzel. Rapunzel with a mohawk!”

The beautiful Adele covers the May issue of ELLE Magazine!

UK singer-superstar Adele covers the May 2013 issue of Elle US for their Women In Music issue, which also features Alicia Keys and Rita Ora.

The music issue includes a tribute to Adele and the thoughts of fellow musicians – including Katy Perry, Britney Spears, John Mayer and legend Barbra Streisand – on her meteoric rise to fame.

Adele talks to Elle about taking her time with her third album, the highest point of her career, the worst show she ever performed and the song which always gets her on the dance floor.

On her third album: “I’m writing the songs now, and then I’ll want to rehearse them for a while. As much as I love my first album, there are still things that I wish I had done differently. So I don’t want to rush anything. You’re only as good as your last record, so if I put out something that’s shit, nobody’s going to buy it. If it’s crap, people will be like, “Why was she ever such a big deal?” So I have to take my time. I mean, if it takes me three years, I imagine people will start getting a bit nervy… but I’ll do my best to avoid that.”

The gorgeous Kate Hudson lands the May cover of Elle Magazine!

Kate Hudson lands the May cover of Elle UK, and the actress looks more beautiful than ever!

Kate opened up about her fiance, Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, and their “old-fashioned” relationship. Kate admits that while they started off with a traditional relationship, things changed when she became pregnant eight weeks into their romance.

“It was all very old-fashioned and proper and we went on lovely dates, but two months later I was pregnant. Well, yes I was shocked, but I also thought: “This is going to be interesting.”‘

Kate thought her relationship would suffer after she got pregnant so quickly, but was pleasantly surprised when Matt stepped up to the plate.

“I knew it would take a strong man to deal with it. You know that with a relationship things can go either way when you have a child. When you get pregnant everything changes; you, your body. Everything becomes a big decision, but he was there and that was that. Now it’s three wonderful years later. Things happen for a reason.”

Kate plans on marrying Matt, eventually….. but her nine-year-old son from her first marriage hopes that it will happen sooner than later.

“We will get married. I do think it’s important but we have no plans. Ryder wants a party. For me it’s not the legal part that is important, it’s what it means to the family.”

Nicki Minaj gets a make-under for the April issue of Elle Magazine!

Nicki Minaj covers the April issue of ELLE magazine, on newsstands nationwide 3/26. She opens up to the magazine about facing childhood bullies, her advice for women in business, and her plans for world domination. A dramatic make-under for Nicki, the shots were done with minimal makeup and no over-the-top wigs. I think you’ll agree- she really shines.

On her dramatic make-under for her ELLE photo shoot:

“When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a… like, I’m so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it’s hard. I feel that it’s become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes- you know, nothing – I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.”

On experiencing bullying in school as a child:

“I went through a lot of bullying early on. Girls made my life a living hell. We had come to America from a different country. My brother and I had accents. It was very tough. So I’ve always put up this wall – it was a self-defense mechanism growing up – because I was almost expecting people to attack me. And I still have it. It’s sad.”

Her advice for women on how to command respect:

“My advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want- and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, Okay, I can’t play games with her. I have to do right by this woman. That’s what it’s all about.”

On her plans for world domination:

“My goal in the beginning was to buy my mother a house. Now I realize, Okay, if I really focus and become a key player in business, then I can build an empire. I’m thinking of a legacy that I can be proud of and wealth that my grandchildren can use to go to college. So world domination- in terms of providing for my family – is absolutely my goal.”
