Nicki Minaj Covers Teen Vogue


Though her lyrics are hardly teen friendly, hip-pop star Nicki Minaj has still managed to land on the cover of Teen Vogue. Nicki is covering the June/July edition of the magazine and gives a pretty in depth interview about her ‘American Idol’ beef with Mariah Carey (who she mentions by mane) as well as what she calls the “not so pretty side of stardom.”

Excerpts and bonus video below.

Nicki on the high school nature of the business: “It can absolutely feel like one big popularity contest, and you know what? I can’t be bothered. I can’t allow myself to play ridiculous games with grown adults in the industry. I can’t be nice to someone just because they’re hot right now. I can’t do it.”

Nicki on cyber bullying: “I used to read the bad things people said about me, then I asked myself, ‘Why am I reading that when I have millions of people saying great things?’ You cannot give negativity power. I tell teens, if you’re having a problem, there’s nothing wrong with deleting your social media. If people keep taunting you and you keep reading it, it’s poison.”

Nicki on her tough teen years: “I would never want to be a teenager ever again. You know, adults feel like teens don’t have problems. I know firsthand that teenagers aren’t always the nicest people. They can be cruel and tough, and they can isolate you.”

Naomi Campbell for Vogue Brazil

Naomi Campbell’s 25-year reign over the modeling industry shows no signs of slowing down. The 42-year old ‘The Face’ star is gracing the May edition of Vogue Brazil’s anniversary issue. In celebration of their 38th year, the magazine invited Naomi to do an author’s edition, which features the brown skin beauty is EVERY editorial in the magazine.

Naomi naturally donned a variety of looks, including a dirty blonde wig, a dramatically cut bob and wispy bangs.

Naomi styled each editorial herself and also chose the photographers- Tom Munro, JR Duran and Jacques Dequeke.

Naomi called the opportunity to be guest editor of Vogue Brazil’s anniversary issue an “honor” and said she hopes to be around in 25 years to do it again.

Check out all the editorial images below.

Pretty stunning.

FLOTUS Covers Vogue Magazine

Michelle Obama is once again covering the American edition of Vogue magazine. Our fabulous FLOTUS landed the April cover, available now, and looks gorgeous draped in a burgundy and blue Reed Karkoff dress.

Michelle and the president were lensed by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, who chose the red and green rooms of the White House as the backdrop.

Check out the gorgeous pics and excerpts below.

FLOTUS on choosing to spend time with her children, rather than socialize: “Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole. You know, we have small kids; they’re growing every day. But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, Our No. 1 priority is making sure that our family is whole.”

FLOTUS on her mother Marian: “My mother doesn’t do interviews but let me tell you: She is not long on pretense. She’s the first one to remind us who we are. And it’s been very helpful having her living with us. . . We can check reality against her sensibilities.”

FLOTUS on what she’s learned from her husband, President Barack Obama: “Well, patience and calm I’m borrowing. Or trying to mirror. I’ve learned that from my husband, that sort of, you know, ability to not get too high or too low with changes and bumps in the road. . . to do more breathing in and just going with it. I’m learning that every day. And to the extent that I’ve made changes in my life, it’s just sort of stepping back and seeing a change not as something to guard against but as a wonderful addition. . . that can make life fun and unexpected.”

Beyonce Covers Vogue + Agrees to Oprah Interview

Beyonce is covering Vogue Magazine’s March 2013 ‘Power Issue.’ The pop diva touches on a bit of everything… her career, her marriage, and of course, Baby Blue.

The interview is really long. Click here to read it.

In other Bey news, the singer has finally decided to sit down for a one on one with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey. The chat fest takes place next Saturday at 8pm on OWN.

Beyonce’s Latest Vogue Cover

BEYONCE VOGUE COVER LEAKS

Want a preview of what you can expect from Beyonce’s upcoming Vogue photo shoot? Well, look to your left. This image hit Instagram earlier today and has been verified as totally legitimate.

As previously reported, Beyonce is set to cover the March edition of U.S. Vogue, which is set to hit newsstands in late February.

However, just like the singer’s GQ cover leaked in advance, so has the Vogue cover. Though the finishing touches are obviously not there, word is this is the image that will indeed be used.

Vogue has yet to respond with take down notices like GQ did. However, you know they have to be just a lil ticked off.

Oh well. Their pain is the public’s pleasure.

Rihanna’s Vogue Interview + Photo Shoot

Rihanna’s Vogue issue hit newsstands today and it is chockfull of beautiful images shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

It also features an interview with journalist Jason Gay conducted mostly backstage at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

You can check out a few excerpts below as well as the entire photo shoot.

Rihanna on the status of her love life: “I have not been on a date in forever. Like two years. Haven’t gone to the movies, to dinner. Zero. 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.”

Rihanna on the infamous photo of her rolling a joint at the Coachella Music Festival and the accusation that she may have done harder drugs: “They knew what it was. They knew it was marijuana. It was completely clear to them. I just thought it was uncalled for. I don’t do cocaine. I don’t like being associated with anything that’s untrue.”

Rihanna on the public’s fascination with her relationship with Chris Brown: “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” (Birthday Cake Remix).

Rihanna on why she chose to collaborate musically with Chris Brown again: “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.”

Rihanna Covers Vogue… Again

Rihanna is covering the November 2012 issue of Vogue. The 23-year old pop beauty is becoming quite popular with the magazine as I believe this is the third time she has covered it.

The cover was shot last month by Annie Leibovitz and Rihanna is wearing a red cocktail dress from Valentino’s Resort 2012 collection.

I’ll be sure to scan the inside shots whenever my copy arrives.

In other RiRi news, the singer’s latest single ‘Diamonds’ has gotten off to a pretty rocky start on the Hot 100. After debuting last week at #16, the song fell two spots this week to land at #18. Airplay for ‘Diamonds’ is stagnant and digital download sales fell slightly as well.

On the flipside, changes to the way R&B chart position is calculated has caused ‘Diamonds’ to skyrocket to the top of every R&B chart except airplay, where it sits at a dismal #61.

Despite the song’s obvious challenges, this is Rihanna and with a respectable video I am sure the song will eventually hit the top ten.
