Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Charli XCX Gives Fierce Face On Cover of Seventeen

CHARLI XCX IS ON THE COVER OF SEVENTEEN’S DECECMBER/JANUARY ISSUE
On newsstands on November 25th!

Who knew Charli XCX could give good face?! Well she does on the cover of Seventeen magazine. She gives a pretty fun interview too. Check out the highlights below.

Via Seventeen magazine:

Charli XCX on what her plans are for her music career:
“I’m going to build an empire. I’m always writing for someone else. I want to be someone who has her fingerprints all over the pop charts.”

On what it means to be ‘cool’:
“When you’re growing up I think there’s this idea that the coolest people are the ones who are really rude and feverish. But I’ve come to realize that isn’t cool. I think the best people are the ones who are just as nice and fun. This is really cheesy, but you only have one life – why spend most of it pretending to be cool?”

On how she defines her style:
“I don’t make punk music—I make pop that’s inspired by elements of punk. For me, as a person, am I punk? In the sense that I do what I want and I enjoy going against the norm, I suppose I am.”

She got her start when club promoters heard her first song, Dinosaur Sex and she started performing at raves:
“My parents knew and would actually come with me. So it was like a weird attempt at rebellion that turned into a family outing. But these were like real, full-on raves and there were lots of drugs and stuff. My mum was kind of freaking out, but they would stand at the back and watch me perform from afar. It was kind of strange, but also cool that they wanted to be a part of it and they were looking out for me.”

Highlights via Seventeen magazine:

On rumors of a Glee spin-off: “Let’s do it. I think it could be Rachel living in New York and working on Broadway!”

On how she plans to follow her passion and find lasting happiness:
· Figure out who you are: “I set out to make a really pop-heavy album that was fun and empowering – I love Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson! But then I found myself picking and writing these songs that were very emotional and dramatic. Louder has songs that express extreme love and some pain. I look at it and think, That was my year. I didn’t record any songs that I didn’t completely relate to.”

· Find true love: “I only have happy memories of Cory. He was not his addiction – unfortunately, it won. But that wasn’t who he was. Cory made me feel like a queen every day. From the minute he said, ‘I’m your boyfriend,’ I loved every day, and I thank him for being the best boyfriend and making me feel so beautiful.”

· Get body confident: “I’m very comfortable with my own body. I come from Broadway – everybody’s naked on Broadway. I like to think of myself as more granola. I’m not going to run around naked or anything like that unless I’m at my own home. Today, I walked into my backyard and was standing out there naked for a while. Don’t tell: My neighbors will freak out!”

On feeling powerful:
“This year is when I really started feeling powerful. I had always been the underdog secretly. I was on Disney when it was Miley [Cyrus], the Jonas Brothers, and Demi [Lovato]. I questioned the way I looked, acted, sang, and wrote. Then I turned 20, went through a really bad breakup, and realized I needed to have ‘Come & Get It’ be amazing. I wanted it all to be me. I’m glad it’s taken me this long to get where I am because now I am ready for it.”

On her fans:
“I don’t feel like I can do enough for my fans. I work a lot, I work hard, and I get tired. But when you walk onstage and see these people who wait hours outside just to see you, it’s the greatest thing in the world.”

On Lorde:
“I recently did an interview and they asked me who I thought was up-and-coming and making a difference. I said, ‘She doesn’t like me, but Lorde.’ I’m going to support her whether she likes me or not because I think she’s doing great things. Some day I will see her and we’ll be cool.”

On never changing for a guy:
“I actually talked to Katy Perry about guys who are intimidated by strong girls. I haven’t found someone yet who could understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it. It’s hard. I do think I might scare some guys, because I’m like, ‘I want to change the world! I have dreams! What do you want to do?’ But I only know how to be me.”

Josh Hutcherson Thinks He’s Pretty Funny, Talks Heartbreak

josh-hutcherson

The November cover of Seventeen magazine features Josh Hutcherson, star of the highly anticipated movie Hunger Games, Catching Fire. Hitting newsstands nationwide on October 22nd, Hutcherson opens up to Seventeen about dating, heartbreak and behind the scenes secrets from the set of the movie.

Check out the highlights from the interview below:

On who is funnier on set, himself or Jennifer Lawrence?

We have this debate all the time—I think it’s me! This sounds mean, but its true, and Jennifer would agree. Her thing is being shocking, goofy, and silly—which is amazing, and it takes a talented person to do that. I like to be more clever and witty. But if you had to go on who gets more laughs, I’d say she’d be the winner.

Have you ever had your heart broken:

I think getting broken up with is worse than breaking up with somebody…For me it hurts more when you’re ready for something to keep going and the other person isn’t.

On whether he’s dated girls with the wrong intentions:

Definitely. I was blind at first by looks, by love, whatever. I’ve been known to fall hard and quick for girls, which I think is better than not falling at all.

I’m a big perfectionist! I’m trying to channel super-confident women like Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Beyonce, because I realized that if you want something, you really have to go for it, just like they do.

ON HER CONFIDENCE FALTERING WHEN SHE WAS FILMING VICTORIOUS:

I worked with someone who told me they’d never like me. But for some reason, I just felt like I needed her approval. So I stared changing myself to please her. It made me stop being social and friendly. I was so unhappy.

Justin Bieber Says All Females Are Princesses and He’s “Serious”!

All together now….”awwwwwww”. More like gag me!

Justin Bieber covers Seventeen magazine’s May 2012 issue. In this issue the Biebs also speaks and while I am impressed (overall) with how well this kid represents himself (he’s actually more intelligent than your average pop star), I have to say when it comes to romance and “impressing” the females, he sounds corny as hell.

Check out the highlights from the interview below:

ON HIS ROLE MODEL:

“Usher is who I look to for guidance. From the beginning, he told me to put family first and you’ll always succeed, because your family will never leave you. He told me to always stay humble and never forget where I came from.”

ON GROWING UP WITH HIS FANS:

“A lot of times, when artists grow older, they lose their younger fans because they’re just trying to get older fans. But if you try to make good music, then you’ll just appease everybody. I just want to make music that’s good for everybody.”

ON BEING ROMANTIC FOR SELENA:

“I’m just trying to make her happy, that’s all. I think it’s important to make all women feel like they’re princesses, because every girl is a princess. I’m serious.”

ON BEING FRUGAL:

“Recently, there were so many things in my rider that went to waste, so I took a lot of things off my rider. Every day we were buying all this stuff and it was just sitting there. I got rid of it, I didn’t want to waste all the food.”

While the highlights are cute and Selena is probably gushing, the kid needs to work more on his wording. If he is getting his idea from rom-coms, he needs to at least choose some better lines. Heck, I’d even be happy if he said that he plays the yaz flute for Selena from time to time. This princess nonsense he is talking about sound corny with a capital “C”. Sure girls do like to be treated like royalty but don’t effing say it. It just makes you sound like you are trying too damn hard. By the way, Seventeen should have photoshopped a princess crown on Bieber’s head on the cover to match the twinkle in his eye.
