They are a few of the most popular singers in the music business, and now Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and Alicia Keys all scored a feature in the May 2013 issue of ELLE magazine.
While rocking sultry poses for the Doug Inglish and Carter Smith photo shoot, the singing trio opened up about everything from what really inspires Taylor’s breakup tunes to Miranda’s true inspiration.
“All these emotions, everything that’s said and all your experiences, that’s what inspires the first flicker of a song,” the “22″ songstress explained. “It’s hard being a human being.”
While discussing how she stays grounded in the spotlight, the “Over You” singer offered her own little advice. “My message is to be your own person, always – whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or a superstar… We all bring something different.”
In regards to her new album “Girl on Fire,” Alicia revealed, “There’s not one thing about ‘Girl on Fire’ that’s like any of my others. I’m in a totally new state of mind.”
“This album is like saying I am who I am, not who you want me to be,” she added.
Taking time to meet-and-greet throngs of faithful fans, Taylor Swift stepped out of her London hotel on Saturday (October 6).
The country crooner wore a green, plaid, half-sleeve shirt and tan pants, while carrying her trusty leather handbag. While in town, the 22-year-old will appear on the UK talk show, “The Jonathan Ross Show.”
Also on her British agenda was lots of shopping. During an antiquing trip in Notting Hill on Wednesday, the singer-songwriter spent a reported £50,000 ($81,000) on Portobello Road.
According to a source at The Sun, “She wandered into Alice’s [an antiques shop] and dropped £30,000, then went up the road and spent another £20,000.”
The camera absolutely loves her, and Taylor Swift was busy on the beach in Malibu, California with a photo shoot yesterday (July 24).
The “Sparks Fly” songstress was in good spirits, sporting a black bandana, white crochet blouse, and red trousers as she worked her posing magic.
And though most American households would welcome a visit from Taylor, Ted Kennedy’s widow Vicki has banned her sons Ted Jr. and Patrick from inviting Swift to stay at the family’s Camelot-by-the-Sea compound in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
An insider told press, “Vicki Kennedy is right to resist demands by the family to use the house. Ted Kennedy put in his will that he wanted his historic, rambling home to become a place of learning for the public, especially young people. I’m pretty sure he didn’t mean Taylor Swift.”
Showing off her beautified self for the world to see, Taylor Swift looks picture perfect in a brand new ad campaign for CoverGirl.
The country cutie is shown rocking darker locks in the shots and video clip which capture her vibrant, hopeful nature.
Miss Swift’s latest effort for CoverGirl focuses on the cosmetic giant’s rollout of four fresh makeup mixes – Country, Glam, Rocker and Clean.
Talking about the importance of choosing the right beauty products in a behind-the-scenes clip, Miss Swift professed, “I think in life we have a bunch of different versions of ourselves and that goes with our personality and how we act around a friend, that’s how we act in a job interview…it’s all very different how we act.”
The 22-year-old added, “I think it’s all equally different the way we choose to dress, the way we choose our makeup. The cool thing about makeup is that it can be so different on any given day.”
With her new movie “The Amazing Spider-Man” having just climbed its way into theaters, Emma Stone garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the August 2012 issue of British Vogue magazine.
The 23-year-old actress looks darling in a MaxMara cap and jumper for the Patrick Demarchelier shot front page while dishing about everything from being thrust in the limelight to her dealings with anxiety.
Highlights from Miss Stone’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to British Vogue!
On worrying about being thrust too far into the limelight:
“That would be? to not walk around would be awful. I don’t think that that would ever actually happen. Like, that is will ever be to the point where I can’t go anywhere. But that idea makes me physically ill.”
On her crippling youth anxiety sticking with her as she’s gotten older:
“I’ve been following Titanic Real Time on Twitter. They’re sinking in three days. I like all disasters. It’s oddly soothing.”
Taylor Swift on Emma:
“I admire how original [Emma] is, just being who she is. She doesn’t do anything to be different from everyone else on the planet. Somehow she just is.”
She struck gold with her Wonderstruck perfume, and now Taylor Swift is hoping lightning will strike twice when she drops her new scent Wonderstruck Enchanted this fall.
The “Should’ve Said No” songstress told press that this time around she’s going for a ‘drunk on love’ vibe with her forthcoming potion.
“Wonderstruck Enchanted is the next chapter in the story of my Wonderstruck fragrance. Wonderstruck is about that moment when you instantly feel a connection to someone, but then there’s that feeling of being completely enamored — enchanted — when you know a little more about that someone and still feel that strong connection.”
Meanwhile, Elizabeth Arden marketing honcho Lori Mariano sees big numbers for the new scent. “Wonderstruck was such a huge success for us — we wanted to carry momentum forward.”
In its various forms, Wonderstruck Enchanted will range in price from $18 to $59.50.
Looking springtime stylish, Taylor Swift was spotted out and about over the Memorial Day holiday weekend on Saturday afternoon (May 26).
The “Mean” singer was decked out in a striped multi-colored dress as she ventured to Joan’s on Third in Los Angeles – with the locale being one of her favorite places to grab lunch.
The midday outing comes shortly after Miss Swift has found herself in the running for more hardware to add to her already impressive collection – as the 22-year-old is among those nominated for the upcoming Teen Choice Awards, which are set to air on Sunday, July 22 on FOX.
As for her bids at Teen Choice glory, Taylor is competing in categories including Female Artist, Female Country Artist, Single by a Female Artist for “Eyes Open” and Country Song for “Sparks Fly”.
Fresh off of being named Woman of the Year at the Billboard Awards, Taylor Swift was looking darling while out in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday (May 24).
The “Mean” singer revealed her thin figure in a mini floral dress with a cardigan over it as she popped into Joan’s on Third for a midday bite to eat.
The outing comes as Miss Swift found herself as the subject of conversation in a new feature from W magazine focusing on fellow country singer Miranda Lambert.
Of Taylor, Miranda dished, “Taylor Swift is a pop singer. But she really helped country music. When she hit, I was thinking, Thank God Taylor’s out there to show people we’re not cheesy.”
“Some people still think that country music is twangy and cheesy, and they pigeonhole us. But I thought if they’re looking for Taylor’s videos or songs, they might see or hear other people they like, Lambert added. “If her fans are watching for her, they might like me too.”
She’s no stranger to big-name events, and Taylor Swift looked right at home on the red carpet at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards tonight (May 20).
