Rihanna covers Vogue Magazine, talks about Chris Brown: “They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view.”

Rihanna covers the November issue of Vogue Magazine, and inside the mag, the singer promotes her new album, ‘Unapologetic’. The new album is Rihanna’s sixth album, in seven years.

Annie Leibovitz photographed Rihanna for the magazine, and the pictures are beautiful!

The interview was conducted on the evening of the MTV Video Music Awards, shortly after Rihanna debuted her newly cropped hairdo. Rihanna talks about Chris Brown quite a bit, and it’s obvious that at the time the two were working towards a reconciliation. The two are now officially together again.

Here are some excerpts from the interview:

On her new hair: “Spur of the moment. My hair was supposed to be down to my ass tonight.”

On the Robert Pattinson texting rumors: “The most bullsh-t ever.”

On time and space: Rihanna says she found herself one morning in a hotel room in Tokyo and had no idea where she was. “Jen, my assistant, was waking me up, and I was like, ‘Whose room am I in? Why am I in this room?’ I never know what day it is. Never, ever, ever.” What day is today? Rihanna pauses. Her lips curl, and she begins to make an “S” sound. “Ooh, I went to say Saturday.” She laughs and corrects herself. “It’s Wednesday. Wednesday.”

She [was] single: “I have not been on a date in forever. Like two years. Haven’t gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero. I would love to go on a date,” she says. “You don’t think that? I’m a woman. A young woman, vibrant, and I love to have fun. And I have too many vaginas around me at this point. Seriously, all I want is a guy to take me out and make me laugh for a good hour and take my ass back home. He doesn’t even have to come up. All I want is a conversation for an hour. No one asks. Trust me on that. I’m waiting for the man who’s ballsy enough to deal with me. I’m going to wait, though. You always find the wrong sh-t when you go looking.”

She never wanted to tweet: “I just thought, Who cares? Do I say, ‘Getting in thecar. Getting on the plane’? I was so distraught by the whole idea.”

Jay-Z on Rihanna’s tweeting: “It’s the rawest form of freedom of expression, right? She has the right to express herself, and I know she’s being playful. I know when she’s being serious and when she’s just having fun. What were you doing when you were 24? I mean, you’ve got to have fun. She’s having fun. She’s having so much fun.”

Will she talk about Chris Brown forever? “To the world, I feel like there’s no closure. There’s some obsession that’s continued even throughout when we weren’t friends or couldn’t be friends at all. Hated each other. The world hasn’t let go. They haven’t seen any progress in our friendship, because they don’t see anything, really, besides the song.”

The “Birthday Cake remix was her idea: “I didn’t think it could be anything detrimental to my career. I was on a tour bus ride between two cities, listening to my album, thinking, Oooh, maybe I should make this into a duet. And I started coming up with a bunch of people, and his name crossed my mind. I thought, We haven’t made a song in so long together . . . it could be a little shocking. So now it’s a bit of a fascination, I guess. I don’t know if people will stop soon, but I feel like as soon as they have closure to it, they will. But they’re not on the inside. They can’t see what I see, unless they’re sitting in my point of view. I guess I’ll learn to accept that.”

Riding on her private jet: “Every time we come on one of these things, it’s unreal. I’m in a positive space, but I do have my days. Everybody has their days.”

Keira Knightly: “Would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No.”

Keira Knightley lands the October cover of Vogue magazine. Mario Testino photographed the shoot, and the pictures turned out amazing! In the interview, Keira opened up about her engagement to James Righton, and opens up rather candidly about motherhood.

Keira’s cover and interview are to promote her upcoming role in Anna Karenina.  Here’s more from the interview via Celebitchy:

On her engagement to James Righton: The questions and musings come thick and fast. It’s no longer “I,” she acknowledges, “but that big old ‘we.’ ” Where, for example, will she and Righton spend their first Christmas as a married couple? “I have no idea; it’s a massive question,” she says with semi-seriousness. “My family was just four”—Keira has an older brother, Caleb—“and very simple. Now all of a sudden it’s breaking into different parts. I cannot imagine my mother letting us go.”

Feminism, work and motherhood: And then there are the really big decisions to wrestle with, such as motherhood and work. The feminist debate reignited earlier this year by former State Department director of policy planning Anne-Marie Slaughter, who announced that she was putting the needs of her family ahead of her own career, has obviously struck a nerve with Keira. “I’m glad that the subject is coming up again,” she says. “I remember doing interviews, and people would ask, as if it was a joke, ‘So you mean you are a feminist?’ As though feminism couldn’t be discussed unless we were making fun of it. I don’t want to deny my femininity,” she continues. “But would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.”

Taking a break from work: Looking back on her decision to take nine months off, Keira searches for the right words. “I literally had no life outside of acting, and I just wanted to go off and not be ‘on’ all the time, not be photographed, not. . . . ” She pauses, then remembers, laughing. “I once went to the Glastonbury music festival”—practically a rite of passage for every English teenager—“and was completely surrounded by packs of paparazzi the entire time, so I ended up sitting in a trailer, unable to go out.”

Playing Anna Karenina: Keira loved the challenge. “When I reread the book last summer, I went, ‘Oh!’ It’s not a romance at all. I don’t think that Tolstoy is saying this is what you should do for love; quite a lot of the time he is saying the reverse. He hates Anna at certain moments. She is both a villain and a heroine. She can be incredibly vain and manipulative. She is somebody who breaks her own moral code, and yet the shame and disgust she lives with because of that make her fascinating.”

She doesn’t need to play the heroine: “I think a lot of people want to play heroic characters, and that’s it,” she says. “But I don’t find that very compelling. It’s far more interesting to think about characters whose actions don’t always make sense. The fact is, the opposite is always alive in every decision. And if you look at your own life, and the way you’ve behaved and thought, it won’t always make sense either.”

I can’t wait to see Anna Karenina. I have a confession – don’t judge – I’ve never read the book. I know, I know, it’s bad, isn’t it. I just don’t have time in my life for heavy books…. I need light and easy-to-read or I’ll just never pick the thing back up. I’m currently reading ‘The Kitchen House’ – which I’m absolutely LOVING.

Kristen Stewart covers Vogue UK, says of going blonde for her new role “It was like learning an accent!”

Kristen Stewart covers the October issue of Vogue UK, in an interview that was definitely done before Twigate. Since her affair with married director Rupert Sanders became public back in July, Kristen has kept a very low profile. Vogue UK is her first major magazine cover since the fallout.

The 22-year-old actress reveals that living in the public eye is not as easy as people would think. “I know if you haven’t thought about how you want to present a very packaged idea of yourself then it can seem like you lack ambition. But, dude, honestly? I can’t. People expect it to be easy because there you are, out there, doing the thing that you want and making lots of money out of it. But, you know, I’m not that smooth. I can get clumsy around certain people. Like if I were to sit down and think, ‘OK, I’m really famous, how am I going to conduct myself in public?’ I wouldn’t know who that person would be!”

She went on to say “It would be a lot easier if I could, but I can’t.”

The actress had to go blonde for her role in the new film ‘On the Road’, and she reveals she wasn’t comfortable at all going lighter. “I feel like my whole body rejects it, but it was really important for the character. It was like learning an accent!”

In the movie Kristen plays Marylou, a member of the beat generation. The actress admits that it’s a time period that she can relate to. “There is always going to be that seam of people who want things differently to the standardized version. It’s not necessarily a rebellious thing, it’s just who they are. That world back then, it just seems freer to me than anything I could ever touch and I’m fully nostalgic for it, even though I wasn’t even alive then. It’s the loyalty aspect of it all. I love being on the periphery with a group of people who have the same values that I do.”

Kristen added: “People who don’t get off on fame, who just like the process of making movies and thrive.”

Interesting she talked about loyalty, no?


Here it is!! Lady Gaga lands the September issue of Vogue!

Lady Gaga’s cover for Vogue’s September issue has finally arrived!

It was revealed in June that the singer would grace the magazine’s biggest issue of the year. This is Gaga’s second time on the cover of Vogue (you can see her cover from last year here!).

Gaga started teasing fans on Tuesday, letting them know the cover was on it’s way. “Don’t worry I’ve been txting Wintour all morning trying to get that cover queens. next im sending bagels to VOGUE (complex carbohydrate war)”

Gaga posted an image of the cover – plus one more – on Twitter.

Describing the cover image, Lady Gaga wrote, “I’m totally channeling fozzibear.” She’s not so off-base: her hair, blonde this time (not creamy pink) is teased into a majorly furry mess onto the top of her head. The volume on top is matched by volume below in the form of a striking magenta Marc Jacobs dress, billowing at the hips and splaying out with a mermaid hem. Inside the mag, Gaga poses in the buff with a giant Steven Jones hat, also in magenta.

What do you think of Gaga’s cover? I think the cover is okay (boring), but I love the shot below. I think it’s beautiful!

Here are some tidbits from the interview via Celebitchy:

She’s such a rebel: “I’m a complete free spirit, so, even though you don’t see it, I still find time to have sex at night on the beach when no one’s around. Or roll into a bar and get [bleeped] up, and dance with my top off. It’s just that no one ever sees that, because I have great real friends who never let me do it when I would get caught.”

On her artifice: “I hate the truth so much that I would prefer a giant dose of bull[bleep] any day,” she says. Vogue interviewed Gaga in Japan where she says she finds her most ardent fans. “I think . . . it has to do with the obsession with fantasy. I think I sort of just fit right in over here.”

On her perfume: She said yes to Coty’s request on the condition that the company not only conjure scent notes to her specification but figure out how to create a liquid that appears black in the bottle, but when sprayed, becomes clear. (After all, she points out, “The fragrance is called Fame. It must be black. It must be enticing. You must want to lick and touch and feel it, but the look of it must terrify you.”)

That damn meat dress is back: The reinvention of the meat dress is one of thehighlights of the Born This Way Ball). “We were talking about putting the showtogether, and I said, OK, what if I was someone’s grandma and I was going to a concert tonight. How would I know that it was a Gaga show? And we all just sort of looked at each other and said,’The meat dress.’”

Why she makes music: “I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius.’ I’d really like you to order a drink, maybe kiss theperson you came with that evening, or rediscover something about your past that makes you feel even more brave.”

Did they photoshop away all her tattoos?
