Lorde graces the cover of Billboard‘s November 8th issue.
The 18-year-old singer/songwriter opened up to the mag about taking over control of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, not being the best phone caller and more. Check it:
On approaching other artists for the soundtrack: “I’m the worst person ever at talking to people I don’t know on the phone — I can’t even order pizza. I would put off calling him [Kayne West]. I’d say, it’s 12:57, I’ll do it at 1.”
On taking creative control of the album: “It would’ve been selfish for me to make ambient house music. With a film like that, everyone likes it, not just people like me. I knew this was right for me as an artist and I felt it would be cool for my career. People that see me as having a couple of hits and performing on an awards show would see that, between records, I’d committed to a pretty serious body of work.”
Taylor Swift on Lorde: “She brings an intelligence, an edge and a wit that we haven’t seen in mainstream pop music in a very long time. We play each other new music we’re working on. We cheer each other on. I’m so lucky to have her in my life.”

Taylor Swift lets it snow on the December 2014 cover of British Cosmopolitan, on newsstands and Apple Newsstand November 4.
The 24-year-old singer/songwriter’s shoot is being used across 23 international editions, and she opened up to the glossy about love, friendship, and more. Check it:
On feminism: “My girlfriends and I talk a lot about feminism and the inequality between the way men and women are talked about. The kind of things we say are, ‘Why is it mischievous, fun and sexy if a guy has a string of lovers that he’s cast aside; loved and left? Yet if a woman dates three or four people in an eight-year period she is a serial dater and it gives some 12-year-old the idea to call her a ‘slut’ on the internet?’ It’s not the same for boys, it just isn’t and that’s a fact.”
On dating: “People will say, let me set you up with someone, and I’m just sitting there saying, ‘That’s not what I’m doing. I’m not lonely; I’m not looking.’ They just don’t get it. I’ve learned that just because someone is cute and wants to date you, that’s not a reason to sacrifice your independence and allow everyone to say whatever they want about you. I’m not doing that anymore.”
On being happy without love: “It’d take someone really special for me to undergo the circumstances I have to go through to experience a date. I don’t know how I would ever have another person in my world trying to have a relationship with me, or a family. The best answer I can come up with now is ‘go at it alone. Life can be romantic without having a romance. I’m very attracted to how happy I am now.”

Bianca Santos takes over the new cover for Cliche Magazine.
The MTV actress opened up about her new show, Happyland, and about her newest movie, The DUFF. Check it:
On working at theme parks on Happyland: “I think shooting in a ‘theme park world’ makes everything seem more fun and exciting. There were a couple of times we even got to go on rides! It’s a mix, really. I think it’s always in my mind to make my job the most enjoyable that I can. That doesn’t take away from the fact that a lot of work and preparation needs to go into it beforehand. But when you come to set prepared, that’s where you can let it all go and have fun!”
On her character, Lucy: “I think when you see things occur over and over again or you have a front seat to what’s behind the curtain, it certainly would make anyone cynical. I think Lucy sees her mom as a prime example. She’s someone who got stuck working the park life, single, alone, and struggling to pay bills. It’s the opposite of where Lucy wants to go. Some may call it cynical, but others may call it smart.”
On The Duff: “The DUFF is a teen comedy based on the book with the same title. D.U.F.F. stands for the designated ugly fat friend. It’s not like anything you’d expect it to be! It’s a female-heavy cast that will have you rethink the way society makes women (and men!) feel. It’ll be as controversial as Easy A was but as witty as Mean Girls.”
FYI: Bianca is wearing a Cici Hot ensemble on the cover.
Nick Jonas carries a giant stuffed turtle on his head in this new shot from the November 2014 issue of Nylon mag.
The 22-year-old musician/actor opened up to the glossy about heading back into music, saying, “I’m in a season of my life where I feel really fortunate to have had a whole career, and now I almost get to start over.”
Nick added, “It will be great just to get my feet back under me and learn how to perform again…I’ve opened my mind up to some different inspirations.”
“Everyone deals with it,” he explained about his first single, “Jealous”. “There are moments when you just get it in your head—jealousy is a universal feeling, and the best way to deal with it is to listen to this song and have fun, dance, or do whatever.”
Emma Watson looks absolutely lovely while posing for the cover of Elle UK‘s December 2014 issue, which was dubbed to be the Feminism issue.
Here is what the 24-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On giving her speech at the UN Summit: “I was very nervous. It wasn’t an easy thing for me to do. It felt like: ‘Am I going to have lunch with these people, or am I going to be eaten? Am I the lunch?’”
On her decision to be an activist on behalf of women: “Fame is not something I have always felt comfortable with; I have really grappled with it emotionally. And, in a funny way, doing this is my way of making sense of the fame, of using it. I have found a way to channel it towards something else, which makes it so much more manageable for me. And this is something I really believe in.”
On how feminism can mean different things to all people: “Feminism is not here to dictate to you. It’s not prescriptive, it’s not dogmatic. All we are here to do is give you a choice. If you want to run for President, you can. If you don’t, that’s wonderful, too. I’m lucky I was raised to believe that my opinion at the dinner table was valuable. My mum and I spoke as loudly as my brothers.”

Rita Ora gets seductive on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine’s December 2014 issue, on newsstands November 4.
Here’s what the 23-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:
On her recent breakup with DJ/producer Calvin Harris: “It was the right guy at the wrong time. I was about to start a tour, and he was also all over the place. There’s only so much you can do when you don’t see each other. I really admire people who have long-distance relationships. It’s an incredible achievement. I couldn’t do it.”
On loving her body: “You have to come to terms with loving your body.”
On Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow”: “As soon as I heard it, I was like, ‘This is the fucking song.’ Katy Perry cowrote it – it felt nice to have all women involved.”

Abigail Breslin‘s stunning beauty is reflective in this brand new feature for Stylecaster.com!
The 18-year-old actress opened up to the site about her relationships and some of her favorite things. Check it:
On the best dating advice: “Never stalk a guy’s profile or any of his exes’ profiles, it just gives you so much anxiety. Before you know it, you’ll be lurking her cousin’s best friend’s husband’s daughter’s dog and you’re like, why am I here? How did this happen?”
On her obsession with Dance Moms: “I love it so much, I get so addicted to every single episode, and have to sit there, think about what is actually happening, and I cry. One episode gave me so much anxiety that I actually threw up. That is probably over-sharing, but it really gave me a lot of anxiety. The mom drama is probably my favorite part.”
On her love for Tumblr: “I love Tumblr just because it speaks to my 18-year-old angsty heart. I Tumblr—I don’t know what the proper grammar is for that—I Tumbl, usually blogs about feelings and boys. And I re-blog a lot of Christmas countdowns and kittens ’cause I’m lame.”
