Charli XCX Doesn't Care If People Think She's Fake

Charli XCX is ready for her close-up on the brand new cover of Fader magazine.

Here’s what the 24-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On the more commercial pop sound of her new album: “I’ve always loved pop commercial. I’ve just never committed, I suppose. Instead I’ve always made breakup songs or really emo love songs … But I’ve always been very much the opposite of what I write about. Because I do like to party, and when I go out, I don’t like listening to love songs. Like, I skip them. I like watching DJs, I don’t want to watch bands. I realized that at the end of Sucker, I was like, Uh, what am I doing? If i make a party record, I can go on tour and party every night.”

On her new music potentially being called vapid: “I used to really care about my validity as a writer or as someone who’s going to be received well. And now I don’t. The more I’ve grown up and the more I’ve become secure with myself, I’ve become comfortable with being questioned. I don’t mind if people think I’m a fake. I kind of like that more. It’s like, ‘Oh she doesn’t do anything, she’s vapid, she’s a projection of other people’s ideas.’ I’m playing with that now more than ever. Sometimes it’s like I would rather talk about my boobs and the outfits that I just bought.”

On her goals as a songwriter for other pop stars: “When it comes to songwriting for other people, I’ve become quite ruthless. I see it as a creative outlet whilst I’m creating it, but after the song has been made, I wanna make money. I want the biggest artists to cut these songs, and I want them to be No.1. When it comes to my own record, that sh-t doesn’t happen, so that’s where I think about what I believe to be artistic, what I believe to be beautiful.”

Chris Pratt Talks Braiding Anna Faris' Hair with 'InStyle'

Chris Pratt does a photo shoot as the Man of Style for the September 2016 issue of InStyle magazine.

Here’s what the 37-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On braiding wife Anna Faris‘ hair: “My sister taught me how to braid when we were younger. Then, I would braid Anna’s hair at night … it was a nice little ritual. But her hair started breaking off at the top of the braid because she was sleeping on it. So Anna’s mom thought a French braid might distribute the pressure. She taught me when we were in Hawaii shooting Jurassic World.”

On his style and Anna’s style: “She’s effortlessly stylish. But when we met, I think she appreciated that I was a guy who wore, like, cargo shorts and a T-shirt from Cabela’s. That was my staple wardrobe for a really long time. Now I’m a little more cognizant of my choices. I don’t just passively have stylists put whatever they want on me. I pay attention.”

On his high school fashion: “In high school my parents and I had a deal. They would pay for either my car insurance or my clothes. So I let them cover the insurance and I got my own clothes. I’d shop at the thrift store. There were a lot of loggers and mill workers up in that area, so the stuff that was donated was generally flannels, old boots, and jeans that were all effed up. But I didn’t go the grunge route. I went more for silk Hawaiian T-shirts and bell-bottom jeans.”

Kristen Stewart Talks Robert Pattinson Relationship: 'It Wasn't Real Life Anymore'

Kristen Stewart graces the cover of T magazine’s Fall Women Fashion issue, on newsstands August 21.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her relationship with Robert Pattinson: “People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product. It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me. It’s not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life. It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.”

On talking about relationships: “I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive. I still want to protect my personal life, but I don’t want to seem like I’m protecting the idea, so that does sort of feel like I owe something to people.”

Carrie Underwood & Brad Paisley Cover 'Southern Living' September 2016!

CMA co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley take the cover of Southern Living magazine’s September 2016 issue, on newsstands August 19.

Here’s what the 33-year-old singer and Brad, 43, had to share with the mag:

Brad, on the power of the CMAs (airing November 2): “If you’re an actor, you want to win an Oscar, and if you’re a country music artist, you want to win a CMA Award. You can see the emotion in their acceptance speeches, and the audience recognizes it too. This means something, and it has for 50 years.”

Carrie, on their on-camera relationship: “Brad is willing to make himself the butt of the joke, which you’ve got to respect. We’re both willing to look stupid, but he assumes the role of annoying big brother. And I’m sure he would call me the annoying little sister.”

Jaden Smith, Ansel Elgort & Elle Fanning Cover Variety's Power of Young Hollywood Issue

Jaden Smith, Ansel Elgort and Elle Fanning all cover Variety‘s Power of Young Hollywood issue, on stands now.

Here’s what the young stars had to share with the mag:

Jaden on always knowing he was different: “I’ve always looked at life differently. I always knew no one was going to understand me — since before I could talk — and that’s why I was so quiet. I was very calm, very to myself. I could tell I felt about life differently than other kids; I could tell by the way they treated me.”

Elle on the response to her films: “Some amazing movies have been torn apart in Cannes. But I’d definitely rather have a split response like love/hate than have audiences say, ‘Oh, that was fine.’”

Ansel on breaking out of his previous roles: “Young actors never get that opportunity. Otherwise my big commercial success would have been me being ‘Oh, you’re the brother in Divergent, right?’ There’s like no weight behind that character. I got lucky. And now a studio and a director will be able to say, ‘We can finance a movie with you in it and also you’ll do a good job.’”

Jaden on his clothing line MSFTS: “It’s pronounced ‘misfits.’ I took the ‘i’ out of ‘misfits’ because we’re a team and there is no ‘I’ in team. It’s a place for the lost kids and everyone to go, and something for them to have…the girl that wants to be a tomboy or the boy that wants to wear a skirt, and people try to condemn. We’re here for you. Tell us your stories. If someone at your school’s trying to pick on you, it doesn’t matter because Jaden Smith’s got your back.”

FYI: Elle is wearing Solid & Striped swimwear as a top on the cover.

Mike Colter Tells 'Wired' The Importanance Of Marvel's 'Luke Cage'!

Mike Colter is totally ecstatic on the September 2016 cover of Wired magazine!

Here’s what the 39-year-old Luke Cage star had the share with the mag:

On warming up to Luke Cage: “He doesn’t profess to know everything. He’s a work in progress.”

On the importance of Luke Cage to his fans: “They didn’t have any other character they could relate to, an American black guy from the streets. That became important to me.”

Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker on the first time he saw the trailer for Captain America: Civil War with his twin sons: “It was the first moment they saw Falcon — another African American character – and I looked at how they reacted. I still get emotional about it. When you come from the culture that you see onscreen, it inspires you in different ways. I grew up loving Luke Skywalker and Indiana Jones and Rocky. But they don’t look anything like me. They’re universal, and you get past that, but I can’t imagine what it would be like to be Italian and see Rocky. And when I saw my sons’ reaction to Falcon, that’s when I realized the importance of what we’re doing.”
