Check out the Azealia Banks cover that’s been banned in 7 countries! That bad?

British fashion magazine Dazed & Confused just released it’s controversial Azealia Banks cover.

Last week the mag tweeted that the September issue, which the rapper covers, had already been banned in 7 countries. Why?

Well, see for yourself! The magazine features Banks smoking what looks to be a giant pink condom, with the headline “Azealia Banks Blows Up”.

So here’s the question…. is it really that bad?

What do you think?

Vanessa Paradis on plastic surgery: “I don’t work in America, so I don’t feel the pressure.”

Vanessa Paradis covers the French issue of Marie Claire in September. Here is the cover. Vanessa looks beautiful in a lace bodysuit. The actress sat down with the magazine before her split from partner Johnny Depp.

This month, Vanessa also appears in Haper’s Bazaar. The interview was also done prior to her breakup. In the interview, she opens up about love and more.

On the eve of her breakup with Johnny Depp, actress and singer Vanessa Paradis opens up about her new role—in love and work, in an interview for Harper’s Bazaar’s September issue, on newsstands August 21.

On love: “Love is the strongest and most fragile thing we have in life,” says Paradis, 39. “Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn’t work from the beginning, it’s never going to work. Don’t push it.”

“When you meet the love of your life, it’s just obvious and natural and easier,” she says. But, she adds, “you keep learning all the time. Sometimes you could be in an unhappy relationship; you are very much in love with someone, but it’s making you unhappy and you think things can change and you can work it out.”

On fame: “I was for sure not prepared for fame when it happened,” Paradis recalls of her precipitous rise. “But nobody pushed me to do it. I wanted to sing, to dance, to work.”

On aging: She says she doesn’t plan on plastic surgery. “I don’t work in America, so I don’t feel the pressure.”

On dating: “Well, my type is obviously creative,” she says, with a quick smile. “Creative, with burning eyes and a pretty mouth.”

Rumor has it the two are working on a reconciliation. I really hope that’s the case, I loved them together.

Miranda Kerr poses nude in September’s Harper’s Bazaar!

Miranda Kerr poses completely nude in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar (which features Gwen Stefani on the cover). Miranda posed for the magazine wearing only a pair of boots!

Even though the Victoria’s Secret model appears nude in the magazine, she still opened up about her fashion faves. Miranda, who’s married to Orlando Bloom, also opened up about diet and staying balanced.

On her style icons: “I have always admired Audrey Hepburn’s style and my Nan has always been a style icon for me. Growing up I would play in her wardrobe and was very influenced by her. She taught me that you don’t need to have a lot of money to have style. It’s the way you put things together and how you carry yourself.”

On her diet philosophy: “I live by the philosophy that beauty starts from within and I make a conscious effort to fill my body with nutrients through the food I eat. Becoming a mother has made me even more aware and more passionate about nutrition and wellness. So much so that I am now a certified health coach practitioner. I love when we are all together as a family and I can cook really healthy, delicious meals for them. Most of my childhood was spent outdoors climbing trees, swimming in the river, riding dirt bikes and horses and I would like Flynn to experience all of those things.”

On her taste for adventure: “I definitely still love motorbikes; however, since having Flynn I haven’t been riding these days. A lot of my adventures come from chasing Flynn around and watching him grow.”

On staying balanced: “I believe in having a vision for the future but living each day at a time. Time seems to slow down for me when I focus on staying in the moment and that helps me maintain a sense of balance. When I’m with Flynn my phone is switched off and I stay away from my laptop. It means the time I do spend with him is quality time. Life seems to be busy for most people and if you know you are doing the best you can then there really is nothing more you can do than that.”


Bar Refaeli reveals her favorite body part in Maxim Magazine!

Maxim Magazine named Bar Refaeli #1 on their Hot 100 List recently, and now she graces the cover of their September issue.

I’ve always thought she was absolutely stunning, especially in the years she dated Leonardo DiCaprio. She’s looking incredibly beautiful these days, and she looks hot in these pictures!

Here’s some from the interview:

Her favorite body part: “My stomach is hard, and I’m very proud of it. I still eat, though. To me that’s one of the best things in life.”

On Being #1 of the Hot 100: “I think it’s the title I’m going to be most proud of until I die. When I’m older, I’m going to walk around and say, ‘Hey, I’m Bar Refaeli. I was No. 1 Most Beautiful in Maxim!’ It’s an honor you never want to forget.”

Guys are (weirdly) asking her out now: “I’ve started getting letters at myhouse and DVDs of people asking me out. What I mean to say is that guys aren’t actually talking to me.”

But she still doesn’t get dates: “I think part of the reason is that I’m not out much. I’m usually at a photo shoot or going to sleep early. I don’t really have a chance to meet people other than businessmen on planes. They’re all married and much older, though.”

She likes teeth on a guy: “I don’t want to generalize, but let’s just say that with today’s orthodontists, I don’t understand why people wouldn’t fix them. A nice smile with beautiful teeth is the most attractive thing.”

Don’t be too cool: “If someone is funny, he should say something funny. If someone is sweet and gentle, he should talk that way. Just be yourself. Like, the other day, I was at the airport, and there was a cute guy who I saw notice me. But instead of coming up next to me, he put his head down and started texting to appear like, ‘Oh, didn’t even see you!’ I was like, if you really were cool, you’d just be yourself and talk to me.”

I always find it interesting when I hear beautiful women complain about not getting hit on, or asked out. And it’s something you hear often, actually. Imagine how intimidating it must be for a guy to ask out someone like Bar! Who wants to be the guy she dates AFTER Leonardo DiCaprio?
