Here’s a few highlights from her cover story:

“I worked so hard during my childhood to meet this goal: By the time I was 30 years old, I could do what I want,” she says. “I’ve reached that. I feel very fortunate to be in that position. But I’ve sacrificed a lot of things, and I’ve worked harder than probably anyone I know, at least in the music industry. So I just have to remind myself that I deserve it.”
On how her career compares to a professional athlete’s

“One of the reasons I connect to the Super Bowl is that I approach my shows like an athlete,” she says now. “You know how they sit down and watch whoever they’re going to play and study themselves? That’s how I treat this. I watch my performances, and I wish I could just enjoy them, but I see the light that was late. I see, ‘Oh God, that hair did not work.’ Or ‘I should never do that again.’ I try to perfect myself. I want to grow, and I’m always eager for new information.”

On how performing gives her life
“I love my job, but it’s more than that: I need it.  Because before I gave birth, it was the only time in my life, all throughout my life, that I was lost.” She means this in a good way: When her brain turns off, it is, frankly, a relief. After drilling herself, repeating every move so many times, locking them in, she can then afford not to think. “It’s like a blackout. When I’m onstage, I don’t know what the crap happens. I am gone.”

Talking to herself during a revealing video clip

“Stop pretending that I have it all together.  If I’m scared, be scared, allow it, release it, move on. I think I need to go listen to ‘Make Love to Me’ and make love to my husband.”

Solange on her sister’s perfectionist ways

“I have very, very early-on memories of her rehearsing on her own in her room. I specifically remember her taking a line out of a song or a routine and just doing it over and over and over again until it was perfect and it was strong. At age 10, when everybody else was ready to say, ‘Okay, I’m tired, let’s take a break,’ she wanted to continue—to ace it and overcome it.”

Beyonce on the inequalities of money between men and women

“You know, equality is a myth, and for some reason, everyone accepts the fact that women don’t make as much money as men do. I don’t understand that. Why do we have to take a backseat?” she says in her film, which begins with her 2011 decision to sever her business relationship with her father. “I truly believe that women should be financially independent from their men. And let’s face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define value. They define what’s sexy. And men define what’s feminine. It’s ridiculous.”

On channeling anger to perform
“I used to like when people made me mad, “I’m like, ‘Please piss me off before the performance.’ I used to use everything.”

Beyonce Covers GQ Magazine

Guess who’s back?

The year 2013 definitely belongs to Beyonce. Not only did she snag the cover of the February issue of men’s GQ magazine, her adorable angel Blue Ivy just turned 1, she’ll be singing the national anthem at the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, she’s set to perform during the 2013 Super Bowl halftime show, has an album in the works and many more.

beyBeyonce paraded her killer curves in a leopard print underwear and a cropped baseball tee for the racy cover. She may have welcomed Blue Ivy only a year ago but she is proving to be hotter than ever!

Displaying not even the merest hint of a mum tum, the superstar completed her cover girl look with a touch of bling in the form of a chunky gold necklace and a dangling navel adornment.

Positively smouldering as she pulled her most seductive post towards the camera, Beyonce ran her hands through her hair, which fell in loose, tumbling waves around her shoulders.

On leaving American Idol

I’m not a judge for a living,” she explains. “I’m a singer. I’m a dancer. I’m a performer. I’m an actress. That’s what I’m supposed to be doing. It makes me a better parent, a better person.” As for the demented schedule, “I think I can just handle more than the average bear, you know?”

On turning 40

When I turned 40, I was like, huh. I accept myself more now. It wa

s much more comforting.” She characterizes her mental age as “16 to 18. That’s when I became the person that I am. Even though I didn’t realize the whole journey I would go on, I still feel all that youthfulness.”

3On the love of her life

When it comes to Smart, her personable dancer-choreographer beau, who is balancing Max on his lap, she says, “He’s fantastic; he’s like my best friend. I can tell him everything, when I’m feeling down, when I’m feeling good. He gives moral support, endless love and support.”

Marlo Hampton Covers DENIM Magazine

1The most fashionable (former) Real Housewives Of Atlanta cast member Ms Marlo Hampton is flaunting her fashion sense in the Winter Holiday Issue of DENIM Magazine.

What designers can you not live without?
“I think this may be sort of obvious, and a little birdie might have let you know… all things CHANEL. I am very partial to their clothes because CoCo Chanel was an Orphan. I can relate to that. She didn’t have parents to raise her, but look at what she’s overcome. Her story reminds me of mine. She had humble beginnings but Chanel is the Queen of Fashion, all of their pieces are classy and timeless!

What designer would you want to collaborate with on a collection? Would it be high end or price friendly?

“I would love to work with the designers of J. Crew. Their pieces are simply stunning and they have a good mix of everything. Our collection would be what I call “Fashion Affordable.” Nice pieces, for an affordable price, with great style, trend but quality material. There would be something for everyone. We all deserve a piece of Marlo.”

So what or who made you love fashion as a teen?

“As a teen I was in and out of foster care; so having the best fashion was something that seemed unattainable. I didn’t win Best Dressed, but I understood at an early age I couldn’t afford certain kinds of clothing when I was growing up. But, what I do remember about my mother was that she loved nice things. At times, when we did get clothes; we would get them from a second hand store. And she always kept us clean and extremely polished.

How many handbags do you have?

“Now that is a tough question. I haven’t counted, but I do know too many for sure … actually, I take that back; a girl can never have too many bags”!

What is the most you have ever spent on a bag or was gifted?

“I am always working on my etiquette, lol and a lady never tells prices unless you want to buy one yourself. However, my crocodile Hermes Birkin is my most expensive handbag”!

What fashion accessories does a women need to be fabulous?

“The one accessory that EVERY women needs to be Fabulous is CONFIDENCE. it’s the one accessory that’s Priceless. Money can’t buy it and as long as you wear that; nothing else matters”!

Would you ever give your daughter or son a Birkin bag?

“I would absolutely gift my daughter one under one condition, that it was EARNED! A Birkin is way too expensive just to “give” so if she earned a college degree, was getting married, or achieved a milestone in her life worthy of such a nice bag”

Every woman deserves at least one nice bag whether it’s a Birkin or another bag of their choice.

Like most other women around the world is Vogue magazine your second bible?

“Hmmm, while Vogue is an amazing magazine which I read monthly, I would have to say it’s a fair toss-up between Harper’s Bazaar and Elle. Let’s just consider each publication as a different book in the fashion bible.”

What was your first high-end buy?

“My first high-end buy would probably have to be a Gucci bag in college. It was very special at the time because I worked for it, saved my money and bought it!

Since we are in your closet right now give me one fashion secret that you can’t live without?

“ELECTRICAL TAPE. It’s an instant breast lift without surgery. Makes your Breasts look real nice and perky”!

Bar Refaeli covers Maxim Magazine

Super hot Bar Refaeli takes the cover of Maxim magazine’s September 2012 issue. 27-year-old babe shows her incredible body on cover page wearing hot black bikini.

Check out some excerpts from her interview with mag:

On being voted to number one: “It doesn’t feel real, because I still can’t believe it. I feel like someone’s going to call and tell me there’s been a mistake.”

On not getting asked out much: “It’s true, and I think part of the reason is that I’m not out much. I’m usually at a photo shoot or going to sleep early. I don’t really have a chance to meet people other than businessmen on planes. They’re all married and much older, though.”

On her favorite body part: “My stomach is hard, and I’m very proud of it. I still eat, though. To me that’s one of the best things in life.”

On how guys should approach her: “If someone is funny, he should say something funny. If someone is sweet and gentle, he should talk that way. Just be yourself. I don’t like when guys act too cool for school. Like, the other day I was the airport, and there was a cute guy who I saw notice me. But instead of coming up to me, he put his head down and started texting to appear like, ‘Oh, I didn’t even see you!’ I was like, ‘If you really were cool, you’d just be yourself and talk to me.’”

On the most important thing men should know about the opposite sex: “If you can’t understand them, just give them a hug. That always works.”

On Twitter: “I love to tweet. I’m in a battle with myself to get more followers. I even make bets with myself on when I’m going to reach what number. I tweet in English and Hebrew because I’ll get lots of messages saying, ‘Yo, start talking Hebrew! Talk to us in our own language!’”
