Featured Article: Missy Elliott for Marie Claire US August 2019


Missy Elliot is the cover star of Marie Claire US’s August issue (on newsstands July 23rd).

Elliot is a pioneer of the music industry, having redefined hip-hop vocally and physically, and lifting up other artists along the way adding to her superstar legacy. Here for MC, Elliot opens up about her long-awaited seventh studio album, breaking barriers for women of color, surviving the music industry, and much more.

On how she wants her new music to be received: “There’s no one like Missy. No one.

On breaking barriers for women of color: “I am a champion for my brown, dark women. I want them to be seen. Because we are beautiful. If we knew how special we were, we would be unstoppable.”

On inspiring the next generation of music artists: “I do want to make the generation behind feel like, don’t be afraid, because we are in a time where so many people can be artists. … Now you can just post up, and if it gets to the right person, then it’s just viral. I want to be able to encourage those who don’t go viral… A lot of people that have 452 or 100 followers may be talented. I want them to not feel like they have to do what everybody else is doing to gain that attention. Just be you. It’s going to catch hold somewhere.”

On gender equality in the music industry: “We need more women out there, singing and just for being. Just for balance. Just a great balance.”

On taking success in stride: “I was just going, going, going. It wasn’t resonating what was happening. I was in the car with Michelle Obama [for ‘Carpool Karaoke’ in 2016], and they [my friends] called me like, ‘Girl, we got to celebrate that’s huge!’ And I’m like, ‘I’m watching a movie on Netflix.’

On surviving the music industry: “One thing I always say, you will always get respect, but you won’t be hot forever…You have to mentally be prepared for those ups and downs.”. (source)

Featured Article: Miley Cyrus for Elle US August 2019


Miley Cyrus covers the August issue of ELLE US, on newsstands July 23rd, and talks about her marriage, still being sexually attracted to women, the inspiration for her new album She is Miley Cyrus, climate change and refusing to hand down “a piece-of-sh*t planet” to her child.

Miley on her marriage, still being sexually attracted to women and not fitting into a stereotypical wife role: “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a f**king apron cooking dinner? I’m in a hetero relationship, but I still am very sexually attracted to women. I made a partner decision. This is the person I feel has my back the most. I definitely don’t fit into a stereotypical wife role. I don’t even like that word.”

On the Woolsey fire, climate change and refusing to hand down “a piece-of-s**t planet” to her child: “With natural disasters, you don’t get a choice. You surrender. And nature’s female. When she’s angry, don’t f*** with her. That’s the way that I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry. We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women. We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece-of-sh*t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.”

Miley on the inspiration and meaning behind her new album She Is Miley Cyrus: “My record is called She Is Miley Cyrus. ‘She’ does not represent a gender. She is not just a woman. ‘She’ doesn’t refer to a vagina. She is a force of nature. She is power. She can be anything you want to be, therefore, she is everything. She is the super she. She is the she-ro. She is the She-E-O.” (source)

Irina Shayk for BAZAAR.com Summer 2019 Digital Cover


In her first feature since her split from long-time partner, Bradley Cooper, the notoriously private model Irina Shayk “gets real” for BAZAAR.com‘s Summer 2019 digital cover.

On perfection and natural beauty: “I’m not perfect. I have bad skin days and bad hair days. Sometimes I don’t look like a model. I’m just a real human being… If somebody wants to inject their lips because they feel bad, God bless them. I don’t judge anyone. But I always promote natural beauty because I think we live in this perfect world where everyone wants to be perfect. But I’m not perfect. Sometimes I have a double chin. Perfection doesn’t exist. I’m going to have wrinkles and I have wrinkles. You just have to accept the idea of aging and of bodies at every stage, and just celebrate it. In life we have to let it go and understand it’s a human process not to be perfect.”

On the public’s obsession with her private life: “I think it’s just human beings: if you cannot have it, you want to have it. There’s a curtain there, you want to open the curtain. It’s curiosity I guess.”

On marriage: “Do I believe in marriage? Yes, of course. I’m not the kind of person who is against it.”

On motherhood and remaining authentic to oneself: “You have to be really truly yourself for your kids, otherwise you’re living in a lie. Tell me one reason why, just because you’re a mother, that you need to wear a longer skirt. No! I don’t believe in that. I really don’t… Why should you have to change who you are and how you feel just because you become a mother? I’m like, tell me why. Tell me one reason! I don’t believe in that… I really believe if you love something, you can prioritize your time. [Motherhood] is just an addition to your life.” (source)
