Miranda Lambert: 'Blake Shelton Pulls Me Out of My Darkness'

Miranda Lambert relaxes by the pool for the cover of Marie Claire‘s January 2015 issue, on newsstands December 16.

Here is what the 31-year-old country singer had to share with the mag:

On writing and singing her own songs: “Early on, an artist told me, ‘Don’t be yourself. Perform and be someone else. And I thought, ‘That seems like exactly the opposite of what I should be doing.’ Then I had people wanting me to adjust my lyrics to be more appealing to the masses or whatever. I said, ‘No, that’s bullshit.’ I’d rather sell four copies of something that’s real than 4 million copies of something that’s fake.”

On marriage: “I’m not sunshine and roses. Blake’s the happiest person on the planet. He pulls me out of my darkness… Literally everything is the best about being married.”

On her 20-pound weight loss: “When you have to walk out there in front of thousands of people, it does feel good to know that your shit’s not jiggling. I’m just like anybody else, insecure and scared of looking bad or being criticized. But everybody’s making this big, giant thing about it. It’s way too much focus on women’s bikini photos, and I hate it. Why do we care? I want women to love themselves whatever they’ve got going on.”

Here’s what the Interstellar actress had to share with the mag:

On filming The Tree of Life after being told ‘no one would ever cast an unknown opposite Brad Pitt: “I knew the second Brad signed on it was a game changer for my career. Then I was just scared I was going to get fired. It wasn’t until after a week of shooting that I started to relax.”

On not dating actors: “I made sure when I started that I was known for my work, not for whom I was dating. Acting is all about being open to another person, and to date an actor, it just confuses it, because how do you even know if it’s real?”

Taylor Swift Doesn't Want Friends Who Will Fawn Over Her

Taylor Swift takes the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue as the mag’s Woman of the Year, on newsstands December 8.

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

On ​being “perfectly happy” being single: “I, however, am 24, perfectly happy being alone, and one of the reasons I’m perfectly happy being alone is that no one gets hurt this way.”

On having genuine friendships: “I feel uncomfortable being the No. 1 priority in my friends’ lives — I want to be there to make their lives more fun, if they need to talk, to be there for spontaneous and exciting adventures, but I don’t want friends who don’t have a life outside of me… They have me in their life because they want me in their life, not because they gain from it.”

On many celebrity relationships: “You’ll notice a lot of celebrity-type people tend to surround themselves with people whose lives revolve around them. You’ll have a posse of these exciting and fashionable cling-ons, and it’s because those celebrities need to be fawned over.”

On pushback on changing her sound from pop to country: “Everyone, in and out of the music business, kept telling me that my opinion and my viewpoint was naive and overly optimistic — even my own label. But when we got those first-day numbers in, all of a sudden, I didn’t look so naive anymore.”

FYI: Taylor is wearing a Pamella Roland dress in the second photo.

Channing Tatum Felt Like a Failure After Dropping Out of College

Channing Tatum gets serious with fellow actors Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ethan Hawke, Michael Keaton, and Timothy Spall for THR‘s new 2014 Actor Roundtable issue.

The 34-year-old actor opened up about his experience getting into acting and why it made sense for him.

“The pressure of what school is projected as, when you’re growing up — that going to college is the answer, and to me it wasn’t,” Channing said. “I went and I didn’t get it. And I failed at it miserably. And I felt like a failure for it. And so I went and tried to find another door.”

Michael chimed in, “That’s not a failure at all. To me, that’s a victory. He said, ‘I’m going to do what’s me.’”

Also pictured below: Channing leaves a dance studio on Thursday (December 4) in Los Angeles.

FYI: Channing is wearing a Tommy Bahama cardigan and a 7 For All Mankind denim shirt in the candids.

Jessica Chastain & Mark Ruffalo Get to Know Each Other More For 'Variety'

Jessica Chastain flashes a smile while catching a flight out of LAX Airport on Tuesday (December 2) in Los Angeles.

Check out the Oscar-nominated actress and Mark Ruffalo sharing the cover for Variety‘s latest issue, where they chatted about how powerful it is to rehearse as a tool for improvisation.

“Sometimes it’s great when the first time you say the lines with the other person is caught on camera. For me, rehearsal isn’t about going over the scene over and over again; it’s about going through the script as who I am — not as the character — and saying, what does this line mean and how long have we known each other?… Fleshing out as much as you can that’s not on the page, and building the relationship with the other actor,” Jessica shared to Mark.

Lana Del Rey's Beauty Is Captured By Boyfriend Francesco Carrozzini on 'Galore' Cover!

Lana Del Rey shows off her glamorous side while posing for photographer and beau Francesco Carrozzini for the cover of Galore‘s Special Collector’s issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 29-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On what she is currently working on: “Yeah, I just wrote two songs for Tim Burton and Harvey Weinstein’s film called Big Eyes and I’m working on a new record. I’m also always writing small pieces for independent films etc. Dan Heath and Rick Nowels are two of my dearest friends and producers and we are always up to something.”

On living in New York for eight years: “I loved New York. When I was there it was almost my sole source of inspiration, more than any other man, writer or rapper, but it’s harder for me to get around now. I used to take late night walks over the Williamsburg Bridge, go to all the 24 hour diners with $5 and beg the waiters to let me stay all night in exchange for the purchase of one giant slice of chocolate cake. I would sit for hours and read about interesting people like Karl Lagerfeld and listen to books on tape by Tony Robins to keep me company. I would take the D train to Coney Island, take the D train back to the Bronx where I lived on Hughes Avenue.”

On why people give her a hard time: “I choose to write about what I know. I choose not to discuss those stories any further than my music. It doesn’t make things easy for me publicly or in interviews and I do interviews because I believe the music is good enough for me to support it as best I can. Sometimes when the things you say and the way you look don’t add up- people are quick to label you as an impersonator or feel like you’re not entitled to the life experiences you’ve really lived. They’re not deep enough to intuit.”
