Selena Gomez & Petra Collins Talk 'Raw' Portrayal of Women in 'Fetish' Music Video

Selena Gomez is explaining why she really wanted her “Fetish” music video to be directed by a woman.

The 25-year-old entertainer asked her BFF and creative collaborator Petra Collins to direct the video because they agreed on the importance of showing the “weird” and “raw” side of women and expressing love.

“If a guy shot ‘Fetish,’ I bet it would look way more sexual,” Selena told Dazed magazine. “That’s what I love about how you [Petra] captured my breakdown moments – it’s shown to the viewer as creepy and I honestly think that there are some guys out there who would make those moments more sexy than it was or should be.”

“I’m not saying I’ve ever done something similar to the kitchen scene in real life, but I can say right now, I do weird shit all the time when I’m alone in my house,” Selena continued. “It’s how I express myself! Honestly, what you [Petra] do with women is so inspiring to me. Your pictures can be sexy, but you aren’t sexualizing women. You capture the raw part of it all.”

“The energy we were giving back and forth was insane, it was like me screaming while you are just giving the performance of a lifetime,” Petra added.

Watch the music video, featuring Gucci Mane, if you missed it.

Miranda Lambert Explains Why She Doesn't Use Her Platform to Voice Personal Political Opinions

Miranda Lambert is looking good on the cover of Billboard‘s new issue!

Here’s what the 33-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On not taking pain for granted: “I’m more known for my fiery personality and my confidence, but that’s not me all the time. I won’t look at things ever again in the same light, because different things in your life bring you to a deeper level with yourself. I won’t take pain for granted anymore.”

On not preaching her opinions on stage: “I am a 100 percent believer in not ever using the platform that I’ve built for anything other than music, because music to me is an escape from your own reality. I don’t want to go to a show and hear somebody preach about their opinions.”

On not speaking out about politics: “It’s so divided [in politics], you can’t win anyway — and what are you winning? For someone to agree with you, and now you’ve spoken your piece and pissed off many other people, just for one person to go, ‘She’s right’? It doesn’t do any good.”

Matt Bomer Speaks About Landing Roles in Hollywood After Coming Out

Matt Bomer is looking so suave in this new feature for Mr Porter‘s The Journal.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On if he’s faced discrimination in Hollywood after coming out: “I’ve had some rough experiences, but I’ve also been blessed with generosity of spirit and artistic openness that maybe some people won’t ever get to experience because of who I am, so I can’t complain. The artists that I want to work with don’t have stigmas anyway.”

On labels in Hollywood: “I think labels are a dangerous thing. As an artist, the last thing you want is one label to identify you. You want to be able to have complete freedom over your identity.”

On his kids: “I so desperately want to be friends with my kids. We have a lot of fun together, but there are times when I need to set a boundary. They’re all different, their levels of affection are different, what they need is different. They come into the world as their own people and you’re just trying to give them the structure to be their best selves and to find their way in the world.”

Angelina Jolie Reveals What She's Doing While Taking a Break From Work

Angelina Jolie has been keeping a low key lately, and apart from promoting new movie First They Killed My Father, which she directed, she’s taking a break from work.

“I’m just wanting to make the proper breakfast and keep the house,” Angelina said in her revealing Vanity Fair cover story. “That’s my passion. At the request of my kids, I’m taking cooking classes. As I go to sleep at night, I think, Did I do a great job as a mom or was that an average day? I’ve been trying for nine months to be really good at just being a homemaker and picking up dog poop and cleaning dishes and reading bedtime stories. And I’m getting better at all three. But now I need to get my boots on and go hang, take a trip.”

Angelina also spoke about her split from Brad Pitt, a surprising health diagnosis, and more with the mag. Be sure to check it out!

Angelina Jolie Gets Candid About Split From Brad Pitt, Bell's Palsy Diagnosis & More in 'Vanity Fair'

Angelina Jolie looks stunning on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s September 2017 issue.

Here’s what the actress, director, and humanitarian had to share…

On her split from Brad Pitt: “It’s just been the hardest time, and we’re just kind of coming up for air. [This house] is a big jump forward for us, and we’re all trying to do our best to heal as our family….things got bad…I don’t want to use that word…Things became ‘difficult.’”

On her kids: “[Our lifestyle] was not in any way a negative. That was not the problem. That is and will remain one of the wonderful opportunities we are able to give our children…They’re six very strong-minded, thoughtful, worldly individuals. I’m very proud of them. [They're] very brave…in times they needed to be. We’re all just healing from the events that led to the filing…They’re not healing from the divorce. They’re healing from some…from life, from things in life.”

On developing hypertension and Bell’s palsy: “I can’t tell if it’s menopause or if it’s just been the year I’ve had. Sometimes women in families put themselves last until it manifests itself in their own health. I actually feel like more of a woman because I’m being smart about my choices, and I’m putting my family first, and I’m in charge of my life and my health. I think that’s what makes a woman complete.” FYI: Bell’s Palsy is characterized as sudden weakness in the muscles on one half of the face. Angelina credits acupuncture with helping her make a full recovery. Hypertension is a condition in which the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high.

On something Knox said to her: “He said, ‘Who wants to be normal? We’re not normal. Let’s never be normal.’ Thank you—yes! We’re not normal. Let’s embrace being not normal.”

FYI: Angelina is wearing Saint Laurent by Anthony Vaccarello on the cover.
