Lana Del Rey strips down for British GQ!

Lana Del Rey leaves little to the imagination in her raciest photoshoot yet – for British GQ.

The singer, formerly known as Lizzy Grant, stripped down to her birthday suit for the October cover of the men’s magaznie.

The 26-year-old’s eyes hang on the camera, her trademark pout swathed in red lipstick and auburn curls tumbling down her shoulders in the shot, taken by photographer Mariano Vivanco.

Del Rey, accepting the GQ Woman of the Year Award in London last night, told the audience of her experience shooting with Vivanco in Monaco.

Introduced by Boy George, who kindly compared her sultry persona to that of Marilyn Monroe, she took the stage and thanked editors for bestowing her with the title.

Shifting on stage, she hummed, her words hanging with monotone expression: ‘We had a beautiful shoot in Monaco and I had a really interesting interview – for a change – and I was reminded of why I love to sing and why I wanted to become a writer.

‘And also,’ she continued, ‘Paul, the creative director, was very hands on with the shoot.’

As laughter rumbled through the audience, Del Rey made reference presumably to the British magazine’s creative director, Paul Solomons.

‘In fact, if you see in the magazine – in the middle of the spread – you’ll see a hand hoisting up one of my boobs,’ she added.

‘That’s Paul’s hand. Couldn’t have done it without him.’

The Men Of The Year issue of British GQ is out on September 6.

I’m ready for Lana to come out with a new album. I loved her last album, and I can’t wait to see what she does next!

Britney Spears covers the October issue of Elle Magazine, opens up about her inability to “be like Kim Kardashian”

This month, The X Factor judge Britney Spears makes a splash on the cover of ELLE’s October issue, on newsstands nationwide September 18th. In the issue, Spears opens up about dealing with haters, her laid-back sense of style, and even how her relationship with fiancé Jason Trawick began.

Britney Spears will enter our living rooms next week as one of the judges on ‘The X Factor’. I’m really interested to see how she does on live TV.

On dealing with paparazzi scrutiny:
“I guess I’ve been under the microscope so long that I don’t even pay attention to the nonsense anymore. I gave up getting upset about things people make up about me a long time ago.”

On her laid-back style:
“I love my jeans and my sweats- I’m really just a tomboy at heart. So it’s really hard for me to be like Kim Kardashian and be makeup- and hair-ready every time I go out of my house. I’m not a believer in that, you know? On the other hand, when you do wear those sweats, you’re like, Oh God, I should step it up a notch.”

On her relationship with Jason Trawick:
Jason Trawick tells ELLE Britney made the first move in their relationship: “It was kind of one of those things where she moved, like, turned around, so we were face-to-face, and then-” Britney’s response? “Okay, that’s enough information, sweetie. It was sweet, just say that.”

Christina Aguilera opens up about her body: “The challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty”

Christina Aguilera poses on the new cover of Lucky Magazine, under the headline “Perfect Your Shape!” And by perfect your shape, do they mean photoshop your shape? Because that is most certainly NOT Christina’s waist. The girl looks perfectly fine and healthy, but let’s not pretend she looks like that, c’mon now.

Christina opened up in the magazine about her figure, and how even though she’s a bit heavier than she usually is right now, her weight problem typically has been “being too thin.” The Voice judge admits, “Actually, the challenge I’ve always had is being too thin, so I love that now I have a booty, and obviously I love showing my cleavage.”

In one of the pictures inside, the singer wore a black lacy see-through top. “I love the combo of denim and lace. The vest makes the lace more playful and casual,” she tells the magazine about her look.

The star, who got her first taste of proper fame by joining the Mickey Mouse Club in 1993 also discusses her entry into pop stardom in the late 1990s.

‘When you’re young, it’s so easy to get bull-dozed,’ she says. ‘There were these two ladies who worked at the record label who always wanted to come to fittings and dress me up like a Barbie doll. It was disgusting.’

The star will also soon be releasing a new, as yet untitled album later this year.

‘If you love Fighter, you’re going to love my new album,’ she says. ‘As a 30-year-old woman, I’ve been uncovering my independence, and it’s been really fun to explore in the new songs.’

What do you think about Christina’s Lucky cover?


Emma Watson looking gorgeous on the cover of October’s Glamour Magazine!

Emma Watson graces the October cover of Glamour Magazine. The 22-year-old actress has never looked better!

The ‘Harry Potter’ actress says she’s finally come into her own as an actress, thanks to her leading role in the upcoming movie ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’.

“Making this movie was so pivotal for me because I realized I do really want to be an actress, which wasn’t something I fully knew, since ‘Harry Potter’ was such a singular experience,” Watson told the magazine.

After Emma finished filming ‘Harry Potter’, she dramatically cut off her long hair into a short pixie cut. The move shocked most of her fans. “The majority of the boys around me were like, “Why did you do that? That’s such an error,” Watson said. And I was like, “Well, honestly, I don’t really care what you think!”

Emma also opened up about her plans to return to college, after deciding to take a break in 2011. “The entertainment industry is pretty nuts, and having had that experience outside of it and going to university has really made a big difference,” the actress said. “It’s important to me to feel like I have my own life.”

While Watson tries to keep her Providence experience out of the spotlight, she says she has a much harder time doing the same for her love life, recalling when papz caught her locking lips with her beau Will Adamwicz at Coachella in April.

“It’s difficult on my dating life, because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend,” she explained. “So it just makes it look as if I’ve had, like, 6,000 boyfriends!”

Emma is in New York right now, where she’s filming Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming biblical saga ‘Noah’. Her new movie, ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ opens on September 21.

She looks so beautiful in these pictures!
