Shawn Mendes Defends Justin Bieber: 'Stop ­Looking At Him in a ­Negative View'

Shawn Mendes Defends Justin Bieber: 'Stop ­Looking At Him in a ­Negative View'

Shawn Mendes chills out on the new cover of Billboard mag, on news stands on September 3rd.

Here’s what the 18-year-old “Treat You Better” singer had to share:

On Justin Bieber: “People thought of him as a type of person. But maybe he was the same person the whole time and you guys just didn’t give him a chance to show you who he was. Stop ­looking at him in a ­negative view and accept him as who he is. We don’t get mad at punk rock bands for doing shit like [he does], because that’s their personality. I just find it very confusing.”

On taking great care of his voice: “I’m very extreme about [caring for my voice]. Did people care about how a singer sounded live back in the day? I don’t really feel like they did. Not ­everything was being filmed. Today, one huge mess-up and millions are seeing it. There’s a lot more on the line nowadays. We’re so cautious and scared of messing up. It adds a lot of stress to a career.”

On being careful with his fans: “You’re one person. You can’t let them take everything from you. Because they will — not in a malicious way. They just love you. You have to be careful.”

On how he hates being alone: “People know me but they have no idea. I can’t be best friends with the entire world, I can’t fall in love with every girl, I can’t be a father figure or older-brother figure to every person. But I hate being alone. I just want someone there — to get out of my own head for a minute.”

Emily Blunt Was 'Completely Sucked Into' Script of 'Girl on the Train'

Emily Blunt stares out a train window in this Entertainment Weekly preview of her upcoming movie The Girl on the Train.

“I read it, and I loved it,” Emily said of the script, which was adapted from the popular book of the same name. “I was completely sucked into it and thrilled by the idea that your protagonist was a blackout drunk. That’s very unusual. Especially in cinema, to have a woman who’s just so messed up at the forefront of the film.”

The Girl on the Train hits theaters on October 7, 2016. Luke Evans, Justin Theroux, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, and more star.

Gina Rodriguez Opens Up About Shaving Her Head

Gina Rodriguez Opens Up About Shaving Her Head

Gina Rodriguez looks totally badass and beautiful on the new September 2016 cover of Latina magazine.

Here’s what the 32-yeaar-old Jane the Virgin star had to share with the mag:

On filming Deepwater Horizon:Peter Berg is a genius. Mark Wahlberg is a badass. John Malkovich, Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson—I learned so much from these people, from this cast, from this family. A lot of movies were offered to me after the Golden Globes—Jane opened so many doors—and when the Deepwater Horizon script came across my iPad, I was like, this is the movie I’m going to fight for. This is the one I want to do.”

On Latinas in Hollywood: “We are definitely helping one another. One thing that I love about Jewish culture is that anthill effect. Every ant brings food to the anthill and everybody eats. Sadly our culture has been living the crab-in-the-barrel effect. We’re so afraid there isn’t enough room for all of us that we fight to get to the top. We don’t need to do that. There’s room for all of us. We’re stronger in numbers. As Latinos, we put Barack [Obama] in office. We could do the same in making sure that Donald Trump doesn’t get in office. We are that strong.”

On shaving her head for a role: “I think it all plays into the idea of being your own hero and not feeling like you have to live up to other people’s expectations. I am not my beauty. Who I am is not my f-cking hair, and to be an actor is to transform. To represent a community is to commit, to give my entire all. So if I’m going to represent Latinos in the industry and in art, if I’m going to represent my little cousins in Chicago, they’re going to know that I went full out. Who are we afraid of? What are we afraid of? The worst thing that can happen is we die. Anything else you can handle.”

“For 17 years, I dedicated my life to the U.S. Women’s National Team and did the job of a pro athlete the only way I knew how — with passion, tenacity, an unrelenting commitment to be the best goalkeeper in the world, not just for my country, but to elevate the sport for the next generation of female athletes,” Hope said on Twitter. “In those commitments, I have never wavered. And with so much more to give, I am saddened by the Federation’s decision to terminate my contract.”
