Lea Michele covers Marie Claire, and talks about Cory, “he is the best person I know.”

This story is a sad one. Lea Michele covers the August issue of Marie Claire Mexico. She looks incredibly hot on the cover, wearing a blazer and black undies. This is the last interview she gave before her boyfriend Cory Monteith died from a drug overdose less than two weeks ago. Sources at the magazine say Cory accompanied Lea to the shoot which took place on June 7, and during the interview she gushed about him. The editor of this magazine released a statement expressing her sadness for Lea. She said that they were so in love when they came to the shoot. She said Lea was a complete professional, and when Cory showed up she was so happy about seeing him.

Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America Editor-in-Chief Ariadne Grant said, “Lea Michele arrived early with her beauty team and her agent and was always professional, dedicated and her experience was obvious on the photo shoot but showed another side of her personality, softer and more innocent, on the interview when she got all excited with some questions, she said she loved Mexico so much. That side was even more evident when Cory showed up almost at the end of the session, she was very happy about him being there.”

Grant added, “Cory showed up in great spirits and was very nice to everybody there; he even took pictures with whoever asked for it. He just asked for a Coke and stayed there watching the shooting until it was done. They were both very nice and obviously happy and in love, we are very disrupted by the unfortunate and untimely events. Our thoughts are with Lea.”

During her interview for the magazine, Lea Michele touched on her relationship with Monteith, saying, “It’s more interesting having a relationship with someone you work with because we get more attention because we play boyfriend and girlfriend on the show and we are also in real life. But he is the best person I know, he has made my life so incredible and I am so thankful for him and not only to have him as a partner but also as a coworker.”

The young actress continued to say that in a relationship, “It is important to have someone that supports you and encourage you, someone that makes you feel that you are unstoppable, that you can do anything in the world because you have him.”

The more you hear about the two of them, the sadder it gets. They really truly seemed to be so in love. I think they just adored each other. It’s incredibly sad that Cory’s demons got the better of him. From what her friends say, the two of them were talking marriage when he died. I can’t imagine the grief she’s going through.

Nicki Minaj gives advice to young girls in the new Marie Claire: “Don’t chase any man, put your school first!”

Nicki Minaj lands the August cover of Marie Claire, and she looks pretty good, no? Looks like the craziness is toned down and she looks much more down-to-earth.

In the interview inside, Nicki opens up about her fans (in case you were wondering, she calls them her “Barbz”), her short-lived job as judge on ‘American Idol,’ and speaks openly to girls about boys.

She calls her fans her “Barbz”: “I’m very aware that millions of people on Twitter have no idea what we’re talking about. That’s because we kind of have our own language. I used to think it was just a Queens language or a New York language or an East Coast language, but now it’s a Barb Nation language. I have South African Barbz, Japanese, German, Saudi Arabian. You can be a Barb wherever you live.”

On American Idol: “The perception that people had of me completely changed because there are no cue cards, there’s no script, it wasn’t be performing a song. It was, ‘Let’s see you real personality.’ My core is a genuine human being who roots for other people. I didn’t want to blow smoke up their ass. I wanted every contestant to leave with something that they could remember.”

She wants to try acting at some point: “I at least want to do three more albums. If I can do that, I’ll feel complete…One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know…I’ve kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects.”

In another life she wanted to be a lawyer: “I just loved the thought of going into a courtroom with mostly men and defending someone — just being able to persuade people with your words. It seems glamorous in a way. Very inspiring and ballsy.”

Her “ah-ha” moment came last year: “I was on a world tour, a big feat for a female rapper. For the first time, I allowed myself to feel proud of where music had gotten me, and I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude. You feel the need to pay it forward, which starts with analyzing yourself with a true desire to grow. I was praying every day, ‘You know what, Lord? I want to be a mom one day, and I want to start becoming the woman who I want to parent my child.’ I wanted all of the feelings of entitlement to leave me, because some people have this life for a year or five or 10 — and a lot of them lose it. I didn’t want to become a person who wasn’t enjoying the moment.”

Her advice for girls: “Don’t chase any man. Put your school first. Men love independent women. You don’t have to be a bitch, but there’s nothing wrong with it at times. And: Men are kids at heart. They want to be nourished and pet like a dog.”

I think it’s hilarious – her advice for girls. And it’s not exactly far off, either. I wonder how many girls would actually TAKE the advice, though. When you’re you’re a young girl you don’t think of much else besides boys. I know some girls keep their nose to their books, but it’s hard! I remember the days where focusing on my crushes was more important than focusing on work!

Carrie Underwood lands the June cover of Marie Claire, proclaims, “I’m not a mushy person at all.”

Carrie Underwood lands the US cover of Marie Claire (earlier today we saw Miranda Kerr’s racy Australia cover). I think she looks absolutely gorgeous on the cover, and in the picture inside. It’s not a typical magazine cover, and I think I kind of like that. She looks very beautiful.

In the interview, she talks about how she’s perceived by the public, and how she can’t help her personality. It’s obviously gotten her where she is today, so who’s complaining?

Here are some highlights:

On her personality: “I’m not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family. Technically I have siblings but they are quite a bit older than me – I was the accident – so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean…I’m not a sociopath.”

On anxiety: “At the beginning of my career, I used to have panic attacks. People were touching me, screaming – it made me really nervous. In public, I just get nervous. It’s a physical reaction, feeling like the walls are closing in. The fans are great. It’s not their fault. I don’t ever want to come across as ungrateful. But on my end, it is hard for me to process. Because I am still just me.”

On awkward moments: “My husband calls me the queen of awkward moments. Anything that can be made awkward, I will make it awkward.”

What she wrote in her high school yearbook: “You were supposed to say what you would be doing in 10 years, and I said, ‘I will be rich, famous, and married to a hot guy.’ I guess I should have added a few more things.”

On having kids: “I don’t feel old enough to have kids. I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?”

The gorgeous Mila Kunis lands the April cover of Marie Claire UK

Mila Kunis lands the April issue of Marie Claire UK, and she looks absolutely gorgeous! Mila is promoting her new movie, ‘OZ the Great and Powerful.’

The magazine hasn’t released much yet, as far as the interview goes, just a few clips. She does talk about wanting to cut back on work at some point. Maybe when she and Ashton start making babies.

On fame: “To say my life hasn’t changed would be a lie. It has changed, I don’t really know how. I can’t complain, not that I am complaining, but I can’t leave my house as freely as I used to. But I’ve also travelled a lot for work, so that’s changed. I have been very lucky.”

On recovering from near blindness: “I have [one] glass lens. It’s very dramatic. I had it fixed. I did it three years ago maybe four. It’s not that big a deal.”

Does she censor herself? “Lately, more. More. But I’ve always said that it is much easier to be honest than to be caught up in a bunch of lies. At least this way, you know who you are.”

Looking towards the future: “I don’t think I can do this three-movies-a-year thing. It’s too much. There comes a point in your life where you want to be….home. I want to explore other parts of this industry to see what aspects of it I can get myself into, so that I can… work out of home maybe. Like producing. Then I can have, like, a life, in one location.”

I love the pictures that go with this interview. The one below with the rose is beautiful. Her eyes are so beautiful!
