FKA Twigs Doesn't Like the Term 'Fan'

FKA twigs is placed under lock and key on the cover of Elle magazine‘s August 2016 issue, on newsstands in select cities on July 12.

Here is what the 28-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On why she puts her work into the world without warning: “People talk too much. Everyone’s always chatting and not delivering. I’m the opposite. I like to just deliver.”

On why she refuses to use the word “fan”: To her, it feels “derogative,” so she opts instead to call them “people who like my music” or “people interested in me as an artist.” “They don’t influence what I make,” she says, “but they have a role in us all coming together and creating something genuine.”

On being in the public eye: “Being in the public eye is so weird. People want to shame you. It’s not a celebration of a talent.”

FYI: Twigs is wearing Prada on the cover.

'Suicide Squad' Characters Highlighted on 'EW' Covers!

Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne and Joel Kinnaman take on two of four separate Entertainment Weekly covers for their film Suicide Squad.

“Two years ago Suicide Squad was a tertiary [DC property]. No one knew anything about it. It was a cool little playground,” director David Ayer told the mag. “Now it’s like the hype bus. All of the attention has swung onto it, and it has to carry a lot more weight than it was ever intended to.”

“You don’t know what the Joker is going to do next; you never do. It was intoxicating to have no rules,” Jared told the publication about his character.

Viola Davis, Jay ­Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-­Agbaje, Adam Beach, Jai Courtney, and more star in the film, in theaters August 5.

Ashley Graham Calls Out Amy Schumer for Her Plus Size Complaint

Ashley Graham puts her bikini body on display in her cover feature for Cosmopolitan magazine’s August 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 28-year-old model had to share with the mag…

On Amy Schumer calling out Glamour for saying she’s “plus size”: “I can see both sides, but Amy talks about being a big girl in the industry. You thrive on being a big girl, but when you’re grouped in with us, you’re not happy about it? That, to me, felt like a double standard.”

On calling herself a model and not a plus size model: “Just because I’m not calling myself plus size doesn’t mean I’m not representing a woman who is… I’m giving curvy women a seat at a table that we’ve never been invited to before—a table with high-end fashion people who have never considered us beautiful.”

On the trolls who remark on her interracial relationship with husband Justin Ervin: “One comment on Instagram was ‘I knew a girl her size could only be with a black guy.’ I think that’s so ugly. But we talk about the fact that I’m white and he’s black all the time. I’ve seen how racist America is. It’s opened my eyes to how ignorant I have been, how white privilege has taken over a lot of my thoughts and actions because it’s just something that I take for granted.”

On a previous relationship with an alcoholic: “He was abusive in more than one way… He threw a couch on me. He came home drunk. I was sitting on it, and he flipped it upside down. I remember my elbow being jammed but thinking, He didn’t hit me; he was just really angry, you know? You hear stories of women who say the exact same thing—I wasn’t showing up with bruises, he wasn’t beating me every day. Looking back, I should’ve left, but I was an insecure woman in a terrible relationship who did not know herself.”

Idris Elba Goes Shirtless for 'Interview,' Talks Working Hard: 'I Don't Ever Stop'

Idris Elba poses shirtless in this brand new cover feature for Interview magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 43-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On constantly working: “…It’s unhealthy to have that much going on. [laughs] I don’t want to sound ungrateful or anything, but I sleep less, I’m constantly thinking, I’m constantly multitasking, and I really don’t know what the effects are going to be when I’m older. I don’t ever stop. Not because I’m greedy or anything, but I’m always creating, debating with the part of my brain that is dormant. Wondering how I can move in and create a bit more space and take a bit more time. But it’s almost like the more I achieve, the more capacity I have to achieve. I do worry sometimes about whether I’m going to burn out. Not burn myself out, but burn my art out, with audiences going, ‘Ah, yeah, I’ve seen enough now, thanks very much.’”

On DJ’ing: “Anyway, what happened was, once I got The Wire, my life changed. I couldn’t DJ as much and I couldn’t take it seriously because my career as an actor was just getting to a place where I was finally making it in America. I wanted to be on American TV so much. I didn’t park DJ’ing; I just sort of ended up becoming more of a studio guy. I had a bit more money and I could buy every little piece of equipment and drum machine that had just come out—I’ve got quite a collection now— and I continued to collect music. Then about five years ago, my career blossomed, but I really missed being out on the road, DJ’ing. So I started picking up gigs here and there, and what occurred to me really quickly was that I was going to water down my passion for DJ’ing, because the type of gigs I was getting were celebrity DJ work, and that just didn’t sit right. So I made a decision about five years ago to really do it properly, to do it at that level I had never done it, but take it seriously and not ride the coattails of being an actor. It took a while because I had to take my time to introduce myself into that world: doing remixes, being taken seriously.”

Margot Robbie Describes Getting Through 'Awkward' Sex Scenes

Margot Robbie shows off her amazing body in a bikini on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s August 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Legend of Tarzan actress had to share:

On if she was worried about getting through her first sex scene in Wolf of Wall Street: “There isn’t an option. It’s just like, This is what you need to do—get on with it. The sooner you do it, the sooner you can stop doing it…. It’s so awkward.”

On her first days in America: “I remember watching American movies and TV shows growing up and thinking, Oh, God, these crazy characters doing these outlandish things, how do the writers come up with it? Then I moved to America and met so many people just like the people in the movies, and I realized, Oh, so this is just real life in America.”

On the stories that she doesn’t want to be famous: “It’s [true] to an extent, but it’s not the thesis of me as a person,” she says. “When you put it as a thesis, it seems like it’s the only question on my mind. But it’s just one of the questions, one of the things I wonder. How would things be different if I’d made different choices?”

Gwen Stefani Discusses Her Divorce & Moving on with Blake Shelton

Gwen Stefani is all smiles for her August 2016 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands July 19.

Here’s what the 46-year-old entertainer shared with the magazine:

On her split from Gavin Rossdale after 11 years of marriage: “It was so insane because not only did my family break up, but then my kids are taken away like half the time, so that was really like, ‘What?! What did I do?’ My dreams were shattered. All I wanted my whole life was to have babies, be married, like what my parents have. Then I remember thinking, ‘There’s gotta be a reason for this.’ Of course you go through the ‘Why me?’ and feel sorry for yourself. But then I was like, ‘No, this happened to me already and I made something good out of it,’ and that was Tragic Kingdom.”

On her relationship with Blake Shelton: “[Backstage on the set of The Voice] Blake was like, ‘Everybody, before we go out there, I want to let everyone know that by the time this airs, I will be divorced.’… it was like being handed this gift of a friend who was going through the exact same thing at the exact same time. And then everything flipped. It went from horrible to, like, hopeful and like, ‘Wow, God, you just don’t know what’s gonna happen next.”

On why she can’t be an open book all the time: “It’s because I have children [Kingston, 10, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2]. As a famous person, you start to think, ‘I can’t say all that because I’ll embarrass them or hurt them in some way.’ And especially now because they can see everything and hear everything. But I’ve done nothing I’m ashamed of… [breaks into laughter] Well, we all have a few things we’re ashamed of.”
