Justin Timberlake Sexy As Always on GQ Men of the Year Issue

Justin Timberlake is looking GOOD on the cover of GQ as one of the five GQ Men of the year! The other men celebrated were Matthew McConaughey, Kendrick Lamar, Will Ferrell and the late James Gandolfini, each of whom will get their own cover on the magazine. But Justin? Too gorgeous.

In the December issue (on sale Nov. 19), JT expressed that his career is always on the go, and he’s good with that. “I don’t see myself as someone who’s ever going to be defined by one moment,” he says. “It’s on to the next.”

Check out some excerpts from the interview below!

On growing up in Memphis and responding to his critics: 

“It’s a struggling city with a defeatist attitude. I’m from this town, and I grew up with a little bit of a chip on my shoulder, so sometimes I find it funny that I’ve been able to acquire the patience it takes to be kind to people in our business. Because sometimes I just want to (expletive) kill everybody.”

On his response to negative reviews of Runner Runner:

“This recognizable face that you work so hard to get — not because you want the recognition but because you know you’re made to do it. …The movie didn’t do well at the box office, so I should quit? Hold on a second. If I was somebody else, you wouldn’t have said that. I have the number one album this week, and I shouldn’t have released it? Come on, man. You sound like a (jerk) … It just shocked me because, like, you’re trade magazines.None of your opinions count. And by the way, none of you can do it.”

On his upcoming role in Coen brothers’ film, Inside Llewyn Davis

“You do a Coens movie and secretly you’re like, ‘All I want to do is make people laugh in this movie. If I can make people laugh in this movie, then I don’t care. Whatever else happens, happens.’ “

What do you think of Justin and the other GQ men of the year? Who would you have liked to see on the cover this year?

Nicki Minaj to Teen Vogue: “People Treat This Business Like High School”

After recently stirring up more drama after coming for Mariah Carey on Twitter, Nicki Minaj has snagged the June cover of Teen Vogue, donning her signature girly girl look. Inside, she opens up about why she refuses to fake about the industry, her parents’ dysfunctional relationship, and why she no longer gives her critics any attention.

On why she refuses to fake about the industry
People treat this business like it’s high school. 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.

On how her parents dysfunctional relationship affected her
Every time my parents fought, my mother would have us move and I would have to go to a new school, which meant I’d have to face the task of making new friends. I dreaded it. I had butterflies in my stomach each time: Are people going to like or hate me? … Sometimes there’d be a fight, sometimes not. I let people know I wasn’t going to be pushed around.

On why she no longer pays attention to the critics
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, I like you, but you have to admit that you’ve added to the drama within the industry, acting a little “high school” yourself. I appreciate that you’re not fake about your feelings, but there’s a difference between being fake and cordial! I like that she talked  about her past, and learning to ignore the critics, though. She has the power to inspire and empower millions worldwide; she just has to use that power a little better. You can read more from Nicki in the June issue of Teen Vogue!

People Names Beyoncé World’s Most Beautiful Woman

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beyonce has been named as PEOPLE Magazine’s world’s most beautiful woman, announced earlier this morning. PEOPLE announced her as the top beauty on their annual list early this morning.

The magazine’s senior editor Alexis Chiu told TODAY’s Matt Lauer and Ann Curry that Beyonce is “flawless, she’s gorgeous, she’s at the top of her game career-wise, she’s this music icon at 30 years old and on top of it she has this glow going on … She’s a new mom.” This is the ninth time that the singer has graced the list.

In an interview with the magazine, Bey gushed over being a new mommy to 4 month old Blue Ivy. She told PEOPLE,

I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth. The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.”

Also included among the mag’s “most beautiful” are Jennifer Aniston, Michelle Obama, Jennifer Hudson, Kristen Wiig, and Selena Gomez. The new  issue, which features an exclusive interview with Bey sharing beauty secrets, how she got rid of that baby weight, and clearing up all of the rumors, will hit the newsstands this Friday, April 27.

I’m so happy for her! Not just for winning the title, but because Beyoncé is really in a good place. She has a gorgeous new baby girl, and is coming back on the music scene with her performance at the Revel Atlantic City on Memorial Day Weekend (and possibly a rumored world tour later in the year!). It’s great as a fan to see her happy! Congrats on the win Bey!
