Featured Article: Taylor Swift for Elle US April 2019


Taylor Swift stars on the cover of ELLE US’s April 2019 issue and opens up in a letter entitled “30 Things I Learned Before Turning 30.” Taylor opens up about everything from learning to block out the noise to get to know someone before jumping into a relationship.

On her biggest fear: “After the Manchester Arena bombing and the Vegas concert shooting, I was completely terrified to go on tour this time because I didn’t know how we were going to keep 3 million fans safe over seven months. There was a tremendous amount of planning, expense, and effort put into keeping my fans safe. My fear of violence has continued into my personal life. I carry QuikClot army grade bandage dressing, which is for gunshot or stab wounds. Websites and tabloids have taken it upon themselves to post every home address I’ve ever had online. You get enough stalkers trying to break into your house and you kind of start prepping for bad things. Every day I try to remind myself of the good in the world, the love I’ve witnessed and the faith I have in humanity. We have to live bravely in order to truly feel alive, and that means not being ruled by our greatest fears.”

On overcoming bullying: “I learned that disarming someone’s petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh. In my experience, I’ve come to see that bullies want to be feared and taken seriously. A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet. The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life, but I can’t tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans. It’s the Stadium Tour equivalent of responding to a troll’s hateful Instagram comment with “lol.” It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it.” Images courtesy of ELLE.

Featured Article: Mischa Barton, Whitney Port, Heidi Montag & Audrina Patridge for Cosmopolitan US April 2019


They’re back… and so is the binge-able drama that defined the early aughts—both in fiction (The O.C.) and “reality” (The Hills, Laguna Beach). Back then, Mischa Barton, Whitney Port, Heidi Montag, and Audrina Patridge launched a different kind of celebrity: one who looked like us, talked like us and cried like us. But that was 15 years ago. Times have changed, and so have they. The four are now getting ready to promote The Hills’ long-awaited reboot, a sequel of sorts called The Hills: New Beginnings. The series (returning this summer on MTV) includes this crew and other memorable faces from the previous franchises, like Brody Jenner, Stephanie Pratt, Frankie Delgado, Justin (Bobby) Brescia, and Jason Wahler.

Heidi Pratt on whether The Hills was “real” or not: “Toward the end of The Hills, Spencer and I had a lot of scripted fights and things like that.”

Heidi on her infamous falling out with LC: “Sometimes things happen that will change how you feel about people, and sometimes it’s very permanent. I thought with Lauren and me, we would’ve been friends again.”

Mischa Barton on her decision to join a reality show: “It’s weird because I remember going out with Nicole Richie and people at the time, and we would come by set when they were filming The Hills. She would drag me to the producer van to see what you guys had been up to all day. All these years later…it sounds corny, but it felt like this was supposed to happen.”

The ladies on the challenges of finding nannies who aren’t familiar with The Hills:

Audrina: “I met with a nanny last week… She’s so young, and she was there while we were filming, listening, asking a million questions. She’s a Hills fan too, I guess.”

Whitney: “Maybe you should rethink hiring her then. I have a nanny who’s close to 70. I took a picture of something randomly and she was like, ‘Will that go on social media?’”

Mischa: “If she was a fan of The Hills, it might not be the best.” Images courtesy of COSMOPOLITAN. (source)
