Drake Upset at ‘Rolling Stone’ for Choosing Hoffman Cover

Drake Philip Seymour Hoffman on the cover of 'Rolling Stone'

Apparently for Drake, a "stolen" magazine cover is apparently worth more than honoring a recently departed star.

The 27-year-old rapper and actor was set to appear on the upcoming cover for Rolling Stone magazine when the publication informed him that they would be opting instead to highlight actor Philip Seymour Hoffman's death. Although initially ranting on his Twitter about a misquote from him about fellow rapper Kanye West in the article, Drake then wrote, "They [Rolling Stone] also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue."

Kanye West Angry That Kim Didn’t Score ‘Vogue’ Cover

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Rumors,

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKanye West has allegedly confronted Anna Wintour after his fiancee Kim Kardashian was overlooked for the cover of Vogue magazine.

The 36-year-old rapper is reportedly "insulted" that the fashion editor, who he deems a close friend of his, picked filmmaker Lena Dunham over his beau for the cover of February's edition.

A source told RadarOnline that Kanye - who met with Anna at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge - argued that Kim is "just as talented as Lena, if not more so." The source added, "To Kanye it's insulting that his friend Anna is still refusing to even consider putting Kim on the cover of Vogue. He thinks Anna is listening to a bunch of 'know-nothing' corporate haters, as he put it. He's upset that Anna isn't willing to do him this personal favor and put Kim on the cover. Kanye knows that it's always been a huge dream of Kim's to be on the Vogue cover and Kanye wants to make it come true. If nothing else, Kanye is persistent."

Daria Werbowy Returns to Modeling on Her Own Terms

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News,

Daria WerbowyWith the horrid working conditions in the modeling world that still go unregulated, it's no wonder that models like Daria Werbowy decided to go on a hiatus. After taking time off to herself, the Canadian-bred beauty is returning to the industry.

"I took a risk a couple of years ago where I decided to do the minimal amount that I could get away with, because I physically and mentally couldn’t handle it anymore," she told this month's Harper's Bazaar, of which she is on the cover. "It's like, you have everything you want, what you dreamt of is coming true, you can’t buy anything else to make you happy, so then you think, Well, what else is there? And you have to leave."

The 30-year-old, who has been modeling since the age of 14, traveled the world on her time off and finally settled in Cork, Ireland, where she currently lives with her boyfriend. While she was coy when asked about him, Werbowy did admit, "Never in a million years did I think I’d be living there, but I never thought I'd be a successful model either. I never thought I'd fall in love with who I’m in love with."

First Look: Dornan, Johnson as ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Couple

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele

Does Jamie Dornan get into character faster than you can say, "Tie me up," or what?

Less than a month has passed by since Dornan was cast as Charlie Hunnam's replacement for the role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, and Entertainment Weekly is already showcasing him and co-star Dakota Johnson in character (as if the film even needs that much promotional work ahead of its release!).

Dornan is seen giving one of the most intense, sexual stares probably to ever grace an entertainment magazine while Johnson - in her recently darkened locks - looks unsurprisingly innocent, wide-eyed, and Lolita-like. The infamous silver tie featured on the cover of the book also makes an appearance, tied tightly around Dornan's fist.

Despite the apparent rush to begin promotional work for the film, fans will have to wait until February of 2015 to see it hit theaters. Talk about torture!

Kate Hudson “Can’t Afford” Designer Clothes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers,

Kate Hudson on Harper's BazaarKate Hudson claims she "can't afford" designer clothes.

The Bride Wars actress - who has nine-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and two-year-old son Bingham with fiance Matt Bellamy - insists she has to borrow the high-end gowns she wears for the red carpet because they are too pricey for her budget.

"People think we own all these dresses. But we borrow them! I can't afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it's very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I'm not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable," she told Harper's Bazaar.

The 34-year-old beauty - who is worth a reported $38 million - credits her mother, Goldie Hawn, with her frugal ways: "My mom wasn't a big shopper for us. I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle."

Melissa McCarthy Speaks Out About ‘ELLE’ Cover Backlash

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, Health & Beauty,

Melissa McCarthy on the cover of 'ELLE'

Upon the unveiling of Melissa McCarthy's ELLE cover - of which she shares newsstands with other covers featuring Reese Witherspoon and Penelope Cruz for the magazine's Women in Hollywood theme - fans were appalled to see the funny woman covered up in a coat. While thinner stars are styled in much less clothing, it seemed unfair to cover up a woman of a bigger size like McCarthy.

With that said, McCarthy broke her silence on the issue and revealed that sporting the coat was her choice after all: "What I found so bizarre is I picked the coat. I grabbed the coat. I covered up. I had a great black dress on but I thought, it comes out in November... I was so sick of summer. I live in Southern California. I was like, 'Give me a big coat to wear. Give the girl some cashmere!' I picked the coat. They were like, 'The dress is really great,' but I was like, 'Yeah, but look at this.'"

Miley Cyrus Loses Vogue Cover After VMA Performance

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News,

Miley Cyrus at this year's VMAMiley Cyrus' controversial performance at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) has lost her the chance to appear on the cover of Vogue magazine.

The 20-year-old singer's duet with Robin Thicke featured Miley twerking and gyrating up against the R&B singer and using a foam finger in a sexually suggestive way at the ceremony in New York City last month made headlines across the world. One person watching watching who didn't enjoy it was Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, who has decided to drop shots of Miley intended for the cover of the December issue of the fashion bible because of her "distasteful" performance.

"Anna found the whole thing distasteful. She decided, based on Miley's performance, to take the cover in a different direction," a source said.

Miley was seen on stage in a flesh-coloured, latex bikini, wagging her tongue and making sexual facial expressions while she danced up against Robin as they performed his hit "Blurred Lines."


Kimye to Forgo Money for North Photos, Will Unveil Them Online

Kanye West and Kim KardashianIn a not-so-surprising turn of events, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are rumored to be following in the footsteps of their besties Jay-Z and Beyonce.

The new parents of one are rumored to be ditching the lucrative deals thrown at them by the likes of Vanity Fair so that they can post photos of their firstborn, North, through a social media site.

Whether it's because West doesn't want to "pimp out" his child (as UsMagazine reports he said) or because Kimye wants so hard to be like beloved power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce, it's unfair that the supposed $4 million offered to them for North's photos will no longer go towards a charity, as momager Kim Jenner previously stated it would.

I guess we'll just have to keep our eyes peeled and glued to Kanye's and Kim's Twitter accounts to find out their final decision.
