2011 is definitely shaping up to be Adele’s year. If you don’t know who I’m talking about, I suggest you just crawl back to the rock you were hiding under. Her single ‘Someone Like You’ shot straight to number 1 on the Billboard chart after last week’s MTV Video Music Award performance. Her album ’21′, has sold 10 million copies worldwide, since it’s release in the UK in January and US in February and is on track to sell more than 13 million by the end of the year.
The British singer has managed to capture the hearts of many with her soulful and elegant voice and her album ’21′ has single-handedly dominated the charts for most of the year. She covered Rolling Stone’s Best of Rock issue earlier this year. Now, in the October 2011 issue of Vogue UK magazine she speaks about the music industry’s weight obsession, her unusual ritual before she hits the stage and why she prefers being single:
On getting pre-show jitters:
“I puke quite a lot before going on stage. Though never actually on stage. But then, I sh*t myself before everything … the bigger the freak-out, the more I enjoy the show!” (more…)
Tanzanian born Canadian model, Herieth Paul, is on the July 2011 issue of Elle Canada. In her interview she talks about her transition from living in Dar es Salaam, her feature in the CK One campaign, closing the show for Lacoste and wanting to be famous for 30 years like Naomi Campbell.
Paul moved to Canada with her diplomat mother in 2007. At the age of 14, the modeling rookie walked into an open-call casting in her hometown of Ottawa, and got herself signed on the spot. Now, the 16-year-old is represented by Women Direct, under the watchful eye of nineties “It” model turned model booker Jenny Shimizu. Check out an excerpt from the interview and more pics of this gorgeous young lady after the break. (more…)
Women, we seriously need to step our game up. There’s a man on FHM’s list of sexiest women! I already told you how Andrej Pejic was taking over the catwalk. Now, FHM readers have voted him as the 98th sexiest woman in the annual round-up of the 100 Sexiest Women in the World. I want to know which men these were that voted for Pejic. I’m all for equality but this is getting to be a bit much, don’t you think?
People are also taking issue with the language FHM used in Pejic’s profile. I have to admit that the copy was quite harsh. FHM went ahead and removed Pejic’s profile with the offending copy from the online edition, but it remains in the print edition. In the profile, the writer refers to Pejic as a ‘thing’.
Check out a snapshot of the offending profile after the break. (more…)
I miss the days when magazines had iconic people on their covers. Nowadays even groupies get on the covers. I mean, what has Amber Rose really done, apart from shagging Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa? It makes no sense at all. So the double covers for the next issue of Vibe magazine will be Rick Ross and Amber Rose. Check out the “quotes” from Amber:
AMBER ON LIFE POST-KANYE:
“What am I supposed to do? Crawl up in a corner and die ‘cause I’m not with Kanye anymore? Am I supposed to go back to the strip club and not take these opportunities that I have?”
