Beyonce channels Marilyn Monroe for OUT Magazine

1396959512_beyonce-article

Beyonce covers the latest issue of OUT Magazine, and on the cover, the singer channels Marilyn Monroe. Probably on purpose, considering she talked about sex quite a bit in the interview.

How her latest album is about empowering women with their sexuality:

I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.

[It was] much freer than anything I’d done in the past. We really just tried to trust our instincts, embrace the moment, and keep it fun.” As an illustration she singled out the video for “Drunk in Love,” a fan favorite. “We were in Miami for Jay’s concert, and it was just the two of us, on the beach, amazing weather, and one outfit! It’s beautiful in its simplicity. If you want something to feel real and urgent, you can’t overthink it.

Miley Cyrus covers the Women in Music issue for Elle Magazine

ELLE’s May issue is devoted to women in music, so who better than the Bangerz girl herself for the cover? Miley Cyrus looked very natural and absolutely stunning while shooting the issue, one could say she is quite comfortable in her own skin.

Hair Look:
Wella Professionals Celebrity Stylist, Andy LeCompte created a texturized style for Miley’s platinum pixie. It looked remarkable with the minimal makeup and her sparkly Marc Jacobs jumpsuit.

Feeling motivated to join in the Hollywood pixie trend? Here are some tips on how Andy achieved the severely chic short-haired style.

Andy LeCompte created lightweight style by starting with a strong base for hair using Wella Professionals Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner for color-treated hair. He primed Miley’s wet hair with Wella Professionals Oil Reflections to increase shine to overall end look. Then, blowing hair dry in all directions, he roughly used his hands and a small ceramic brush to tousle locks. Andy finished by spraying leave in conditioner onto his hands and ran through Miley’s hair, giving moisture as well as that much desired texture seen on the cover.

Katy Perry has Spring fever!

The singer, who’s dyed her hair many different colors over the years, has gone green!

She showed off her new ‘do on Instagram, saying “SLIME GREEN FOR SPRING by my bb’s @neeenaboo & @brantmayfield at the @mcmillansalon.”

Katy recently told E! News that she was planning the hair change.

“I’ve wanted to go slime green for a long time,” she said at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles’ 35th Anniversary Gala presented by Louis Vuitton. “It’s spring time and I think it’s time to freshen up my look.”

“I’m really excited about slime green, but I hope my hair doesn’t fall out,” she said. As for a new style, Katy added, “I kind of cut my bangs in haste and now I want them gone.”

What do you think of her new green locks?
