Women In Music: Gwen Stefani Graces Elle Magazine Cover 2011

8 Apr


Gwen Stefani On writing hits: “I do! Why wouldn’t you want that many people listening to the songs that you wrote? There’s no way to go back after you have had it. So the intentions of even the solo records were always about trying to write those guilty-pleasure albums that just get in your head and you can’t get out. I’m not cool, I’m not into the B-sides. Prince, who is one of my idols, gave me some advice when I worked with him: “Have you ever just tried writing a hit? Like, don’t just try writing a song, try and write a hit song.” I remember him saying that and me thinking, Yeah, you’re right. Why would you write anything else?”

On her marriage to Gavin Rossdale: “The first time we ever kissed was right around Valentine’s Day—we were in New Orleans on tour. So, yeah, I always think about that because it’s unbelievable that we’ve been able to stay together. I feel so proud of us—it’s one of my biggest achievements.”

On performing while pregnant: “It was horrible. Certain songs would make me want to puke. You feel pretty gross when you are first pregnant. You don’t feel cute, you feel disgusting. You’re getting fat. It was hard. I mean, I’m very vain. That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual.”

On whether Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry have taken a page out of her playbook when it comes to style: “Really? I don’t see myself in those girls. I usually put pants on. I see these girls as more going for the sex-symbol thing. I was more, in the band, like a tomboy. Of course, I think every girl is sexy, so there’s going to be a little of that. But I see a lot of younger artists going more toward the sexy thing.”

On pop music: When we were growing up, some of the hits were legendary ones that you hear your whole life. But certain songs, I don’t know if you’ll ever hear them again. Because that’s what that music is, like a guilty pleasure, it’s right at the moment. It’s like fashion—it’s now, then it’s gone.”

After years of heartfelt ballads and impeccable hair, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have ended heir relationship, E!Online reports.The couple met while filming the first installment of Disney mega-hit ‘High School Musical’ and began their romance shortly thereafter.

A source tells that the split was “amicable,” after the stars recognized that their relationship “wasn’t going to go further.”

Although the couple appeared affectionate toward one another throughout their relationship, there were signs that trouble was brewing.

Earlier this year, while promoting ‘Charlie St. Cloud,’ 23-year-old Efron told Details , “Believe me, I rack my brain thinking, ‘Why am I not out there playing the field?’ One of my buddies was like, ‘You have no idea what’s going on right now.

You’re peaking on Ecstasy and you’re watching TV.’ But it’s not in my heart.”

Summary: Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are extremely young still. As life always deals us cards. Some of those cards are not strong enough to play out. You have to know when to hold ’em, and know when to fold ’em, and know when to walk away! Just like the old song says.

At some point in life we all experience a heartache from a big break up as these two celebrities.

Still rather young and self discovery is so important in life. We all have to branch off and discover who we are as individuals. Although they make a lovely couple it is always sad to see two people who made a fabulous couple, break up.

With the Holidays around the corner. I know has to be a tuff one.

I am sure they both will move on and continue to enjoy their youth! After all life is about finding yourself.

Prince William and Kate Middleton—or “Miss Catherine Middleton,” if you’re feeling formal—just released two photos from their official engagement shoot!

The pictures were shot by fashion photographer Mario Testino, who has shot both Prince William and Prince Harry, as well as their late mother, Princess Diana.

William and Kate had two “looks” during the two-hour session. Let’s assess!

For the formal shot, the prince wore a Turnbull and Asser suit; the princess-to-be opted for a Reiss dress and Links earrings. Per US Weekly, the photo was taken in the historic Council Chamber linked to Clarence House, the official residence of William’s father, Prince Charles.

In the “dressed-down” photo, William chose a Turnbull and Asser shirt and Brunello Cucinelli sweater; Kate wore a Whistles blouse. The second picture was taken in the Cornwall Room of St. James’s Palace.

Here’s the most shocking scoop from the shoot: While Mario’s people were on hand for touch-ups, Kate did her own makeup! Her hair was styled by James Pryce, her usual stylist, from the Richard Ward salon.

Rihanna On Cover Of Marie Claire: Moving Forward And Being Happy Again

10 Dec

Rihanna is featured in the December 2010 issue of Marie Claire UK.

She’s the toast of the music industry and the hottest talent around. Introducing our stunning December cover star, Rihanna. We caught up with the Rude Boy superstar to talk about surviving the bad times, learning to love her imperfections, and how she is happier and stronger than ever.

In the issue Rihanna talks about moving on & being happy again:

“I feel like I smile for real this time. The smiles come from inside, and it exudes in everything I do. People feel my energy is different. When I smile they can tell that it’s pure bliss and not just a cover up.”

She also talks about her wake up call:

“I needed that wake-up call in my life. I needed a turning point, and that’s what God was giving to me. All this terrible stuff they say to you, it breaks you down. [But] once you’re back on your feet – if you ever make it back on your feet – that’s the ultimate achievement.”

Rihanna also talks about her breakup with Chris Brown:

“Eventually, I remember waking up one day and I knew I was over it. One day, I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it.”

Read more from Rihanna’s interview and view photos at MarieClaire.co.uk.

Summary: Rihanna share’s her personal side of what she went through in her relationship with Chris Brown. She gets very personal about herself. As well as share’s where she is right now in the present part of her life.

I absolutely know in life we all grow out of something just to grow right back into being happy again. Life is always throwing curve balls at us. The question is are we willing to face things head on. Or do we just dodge the curve balls. Never learning from our mistakes. Mistakes are nothing more then lessons that allow us to gain maturity as we age. True wisdom comes from being in a bad place in life. Without mistakes how would we learn and grow as individuals you can’t.

Rihanna looks radiant and stunning in her photographs shot with Mikael Jansson for Marie Claire cover and interview spread. I guess being happy and stronger then ever will do that to any person.

Remember when life has dealt you a situation that seems totally impossible to get out of. That’s just life reminding you that you have hit a stage in your life that you grown up and ready to move to something bigger and better. Just we do not look at life’s preview that way.

So check out Rhianna on the cover of Marie Claire Co UK. So go check out your nearest news stands if you haven’t already.  I picked my copy up at the bookstore!

Guest speaker Victoria Beckham attends Day 1 of the International Herald Tribune Heritage Luxury Conference at The Inter Continental  Hotel on November 9, 2010 in London, England.

She was of course wearing a dress from her own Spring 2011 collection.

Summary: Victoria Beckham is known to many for her versatile style and elegance. As well as hair trend setter! I absolutely have been a huge fan of her many fashion’s.

I love the fact that she has fun and she always looks like she enjoys everything that she wears. From her many short hair cut’s that graced many of our favorite hair magazines.

All the way to styling runway clothing to designing many of her own dresses, jeans and accessories.

You can find Victoria at just about every fashion show humanly possible to woman. As she set’s trends from eyeglasses, shoes, to handbag’s as well as clothing.

She always leaves us looking forward to the next best thing she comes across. Making us all wonder what comes next with her.

I myself cut off my long hair just to try a bob that she styled for many years. So she leaves that impression that fashion should be about change but yet fun.

Now that she’s back to styling her long hair again. Which she has been trying to grow it out for sometime now.

Wearing her hair back into buns, ponytails as well as extensions for added length. I myself am trying to do the same thing after two years of wearing a bob.

Fashion is change. Nothing stay’s the same if your a fashion forward type of dresser. So if your looking to grow out your hair after a long time of styling it short.

Quick Tip. Stop off at your neighborhood beauty supply store for your pony tail extensions, or your clip on extensions for wearing the hair down.

What a great way to grow out hair and still look like a princess.

Remember style should embrace who you are and what you dare to feel comfortable in!!!!
