Grace VanderWaal Is Still Figuring Out Her Exact Sound

Grace VanderWaal has landed her first ever magazine cover with Girls’ Life!

The 14-year-old musician, who won season 12 of America’s Got Talent, opened up in the June/July 2018 issue about social media, not feeling the word “famous”, and how she’s still figuring it all out one day at a time.

“I don’t think I really know my exact style or my sound yet,” she shared. “I want my music to evolve to become more me.”

Grace adds, “But I don’t know. I think I’m going to keep writing and just see where it goes.”

Later this month, Grace will be hitting the road with Imagine Dragons on their tour, something she’s really excited for.

“I’m used to the small venues I usually play, but this is going to be stadiums and arenas, which is so cool,” she shared.

Ariana Grande Opens Up About Manchester Attack & Naming Her New Album 'Sweetener'

Ariana Grande Opens Up About Manchester Attack & Naming Her New Album 'Sweetener'

Ariana Grande is reflecting on life after the tragic terrorist attack at her May 2017 concert in Manchester, England.

The “No Tears Left To Cry” crooner and her manager Scooter Braun shared their thoughts in the latest issue of Time magazine. Here’s what they had to say:

Scooter on visiting Ariana at her grandmother’s home in Boca Raton, Fla., after the bombing, when he asked her to do something he knew at the time was unfair: “I said, ‘We need to get a concert and get back out there.’ She looked at me like I was insane. She said, ‘I can never sing these songs again. I can’t put on these outfits. Don’t put me in this position.’”

Two days later, Ariana texted him, “Call me. I need to speak to you. … If I don’t do something, these people died in vain.” That’s when they decided to put on the One Love Manchester benefit concert.

Ariana on processing the events: “There are so many people who have suffered such loss and pain. The processing part is going to take forever. I don’t want to give [the attack] that much power. Something so negative. It’s the absolute worst of humanity. That’s why I did my best to react the way I did. The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won.”

“Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world. I think that’s why it’s still so heavy on my heart every single day. I wish there was more that I could fix. You think with time it’ll become easier to talk about. Or you’ll make peace with it. But every day I wait for that peace to come and it’s still very painful.”

On naming her new album Sweetener: “When you’re handed a challenge, instead of sitting there and complaining about it, why not try to make something beautiful?”

Katherine McNamara Would Love To Branch Out Into Directing One Day

Katherine McNamara Would Love To Branch Out Into Directing One Day

Katherine McNamara is so stunning in her new feature story for INLOVE magazine!

Photographed by Ryan Jerome and styled by Elena Vasilevsky, the 22-year-old actress opens up about how acting lured her away from pursuing her dream of developmental economics.

If you remember, Katherine is a super smartie and graduated at just 17 from Drexel University – and now she’s in the literature program at Johns Hopkins!

“That was my original idea before I discovered what acting was,” Katherine says of her developmental economics plan. “I just always found it fascinating and it’s something I’ve always been passionate about.”

But, don’t worry, because she’s not giving up acting at all.

Katherine adds, “I’m not planning on straying [from acting]. I am looking to branch out though. I am learning so much on different projects about directing and producing. I’d like to branch out into directing at some point.”

Check out her full feature below!

Joey King Opens Up About How She Prepped for Her 'Kissing Booth' Role

Joey King Opens Up About How She Prepped for Her 'Kissing Booth' Role

Joey King looks amazing in her photo shoot for Schon Magazine‘s new issue!

Here’s what the Ramona and Beezus star had to say to the outlet:

On which role has been her favorite so for and who she’s looking forward to playing in the future: “It is pretty crazy to take a look at what I’ve gotten to be part of. I’m looking forward to EVERYTHING! One thing I loved so much about making Fargo was that I got the chance to play someone who has an accent in the show and I would definitely love to play someone with an accent again. An experience that has been particularly memorable and formative to me was filming Going In Style. I got to work with some of my idols — Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin — which was a life-changing moment for me, all while being directed by one of my closest friends Zach Braff. The whole experience of filming that movie will forever be so special to me. Everyone was so so nice.”

On if she read “The Kissing Booth” book in preparation for her role in the Netflix movie: “To be completely honest, I did not. I have weird superstitions — like I never look up a director before a meeting or audition because I don’t want to psych myself out instead of really focusing on the character. With book adaptations, it’s tricky because I’m supposed to be playing a very specific person, but I also want to make sure the way I’m playing them is unique to me, and I like to have lots of wiggle room with the director so we can make our own version of this beloved character without losing our authenticity or the characters. But trust me, I did my fair share of research on my girl Elle Evans and the amazing ‘Kissing Booth’ fandom.”

On what it was like recording the film in South Africa, where she met her now real-life boyfriend Jacob Elordi: “South Africa is easily my favorite place I’ve ever traveled to. I met the kindest people while filming there and I also got to make a movie that I love so much. And like you said I did meet Jacob Elordi and, of course, Joel Courtney and those two mean the absolute world to me. South Africa was very good to me and I can’t wait to go back and see my beautiful friends that I made there again.”

Bella Hadid Responds to Those Who Think She's a Partier!

Bella Hadid Responds to Those Who Think She's a Partier!

Bella Hadid goes for a masked look on her Harper’s Bazaar‘s June/July issue cover story, which will be hitting newsstands on May 22!

For her cover story, the 21-year-old model chatted with her sis, fellow model Gigi Hadid!

On being perceived as one-dimensional—a non-smiler: “I never go a day without smiling. People always say I have the same facial expressions. But what they don’t realize is that for a long time I looked that way because photographers on set would direct me to look ‘bored’ or ‘very nonchalant.’ But it isn’t necessarily the way I really am.”

On the negativity of social media and being in the public eye: “For a while I fought a lot of battles—with myself, with people online—and it brought me down. When people would say, “Oh, she’s so mean,” I wanted to say, “Maybe I’ve just had a bad day! Or maybe I’ve just been crying.” You never know what people are going through… [People] see such a small piece of our lives, like paparazzi photos of us leaving the house. You know how awkward that is? To walk out of your own home and have 40 people waiting outside. And then you need to smile at random strangers.”

On being a homebody, not the party girl she’s thought to be: “People think I’m such a party girl, but that’s a thing of the past. I can’t wait to just sit on the couch this weekend! Now that our careers have gotten to the heights that they have and our job is to be around people all day and go to parties, the last thing I want to do on a Saturday night is go out. I just want to be around people who love me. Like you and I play video games, watch movies, paint pottery—all the stupid shit we used to do back in our childhood before we became Gigi and Bella.”
