Featured Article: Halsey for Marie Claire US August 2018


Halsey’s had one hell of a year – from her Women’s March moment to her current Hopeless Fountain Kingdom world tour. Weathering the storms of her past, she’s charted an atypical course to stardom. Inside Marie Claire US’s August issue (cover photographed by Mark Seliger), the pop-songstress address her critics who challenge what she stands for, how performing allowing her to cope with her mental illness, the craziest thing she’s ever done, and what the future holds.

On her response to critics who question what she stands for: “In one year, I performed at the Nobel Peace Prize [Concert] in Oslo, donated $100,000 to Planned Parenthood, got my first Grammy nomination, showed my t*ts in Playboy, and did about 150 tequila shots. I did all those things, and it’s because I’m multidimensional.”

On how performing allows her to cope with mental illness: “I release endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine. Like, it’s literally a drug response. I don’t manage my mental illness to keep up with my lifestyle; I manage my lifestyle to keep up with my mental illness.”

On enjoying her new-found success:Payton [her best friend] and me used to live on f*cking Hot Pockets, and now we’ve eaten caviar on three continents.”

On the craziest thing she’s ever done: “Shut down a highway in Mexico City [for a gun battle in the video for ‘Now or Never’].”

On what the future holds: “Once my tour is over, I feel like anything could happen. I could decide I want to move to Italy for a year and write. I could get pregnant. I finally have enough stability in my career where I can take a breath. I feel like I can let life happen.”

Featured Article: Ariana Grande for Elle US August 2018


UPDATED JULY 13TH 2018: Added the subscriber cover. (source)

Singer Ariana Grande stars on ELLE US’s August cover and opens up about her new album and outlook on life.

Grande discusses the aftermath of the devastating attack at her concert in Manchester, performing after the tragic event, using her platform to take a stand, and much more.

On coming home after the Manchester attack: “When I got home from tour, I had really wild dizzy spells, this feeling like I couldn’t breathe. I would be in a good mood, fine and happy, and they would hit me out of nowhere. I’ve always had anxiety, but it had never been physical before. There were a couple of months straight where I felt so upside down.”

On performing after Manchester: “Why would I second-guess getting on a f*cking stage and being there for them? That city, and their response? That changed my life.”

On using her platform to take a stand: “There’s a lot of noise when you say anything about anything. But if I’m not going to say it, what’s the f*cking point of being here? Not everyone is going to agree with you, but that doesn’t mean I’m just going to shut up and sing my songs. I’m also going to be a human being who cares about other human beings; to be an ally and use my privilege to help educate people.”

On her connection to Pattie: “We’re both women whose lives have been deeply influenced by songs and songwriting. I stand on one side of it, and you [Pattie Boyd] on the other.”

On finding moments of inspiration: “There are definitely moments when it’s like this cloud of an idea comes and just lands in front of your face, and you reach up and grab it. A lot of songwriting is things you learn, structure, and cultivating that skill, and knowing how to craft a song. But there are mystical, magical moments, inexplicable moments when an idea that is fully formed just pops into your head. And that’s the purest part of my job. It can get complicated on every other level, but the songwriting is still the same uncomplicated process it was when I was 12 years old writing songs in my room.”

On muses: “I don’t know what it is that makes some people really creatively inspiring. There have been people I’ve spent a lot of time with who I just couldn’t write about… It’s just that some people come into your life and they have this effect on you.”

On how Pattie inspires her future self: “I would love to look back on my life with the same clarity, wisdom, and peace that you [Pattie] seem to have.” (source)

Featured Article: Mila Kunis for Cosmopolitan US August 2018


In the August issue of Cosmopolitan US (photo by Kai Z Feng, styled by Kristen Saladino), 34-year-old actress and producer Mila Kunis dishes to her latest, SNL’s Kate McKinnon, her friend and costar in this month’s big-screen comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, about secret fantasies, career superpowers, and so much more.

On social media—and why she doesn’t participate: “I was so late to that train. I remember at some point my roommate was like, “You know, there’s a thing called Facebook,” and I was like, “What is this Facebook? Who’s gonna poke each other? That’s just weird.” And then Ashton and I reconnected and started talking. He used to be incredibly forward-thinking with social media, when the intent was to connect to people. But it took an ugly turn and became all about who can be the loudest, who can be the angriest and the most negative. Then it’s just not a fun game to play.”

On rumors about herself that run in the tabloids: “I don’t read anything about myself. I genuinely don’t know what’s written about me…other than I know that I’m pregnant about once a year and my husband and I are getting a divorce once a year. I know this because I go down the grocery store aisle, and I see it on the cover of magazines and I’m like, Oh boy, okay!… The only thing that’s upsetting is my parents and my grandparents sometimes get confused… At one point when I was pregnant, [the tabloids] said that I had an emergency and was rushed to the hospital, and my face was on the cover. The amount of stress that caused my family, nobody will understand. Although my dad is always very hopeful that the pregnancies are true. He’s always like, “Is there really another?””

On her ultimate dream as a producer and an actor: “I just sat down three days ago to write out my dream in five years. And I realized very quickly that I didn’t dream big enough. And so I’ve been thinking about it for the past few days, like, What is my grand f**king dream for myself? I just want to be happy. I know that sounds incredibly lame, but I never want to stop learning or being challenged, and I never want to stop challenging my partner.” (source)

Featured Article: Chloë Sevigny for Town & Country August 2018


Photographed by the renowned Tina Barney, actress Chloë Sevigny (styled by Nicoletta Santoro in Valentino dress and Sethi Couture earrings and necklace) opens up to Town & Country magazine for their August 2018 issue about her upcoming film Lizzie – based on the fabled family murder story of Lizzie Borden – the challenges she faced serving as both actress and director for the project, why people don’t take her seriously as an actress, and why she finally joined Instagram.

In preparing for the role, Sevigny stayed in the Borden family home which she considered to be haunted. She says, “…I don’t normally get visited by ghosts, because I have a Catholic force field up all the time, but there was obviously a presence there.” The Borden Family home is currently for sale.

On what she wanted to convey for the infamous murder scene in Lizzie: “She’s so constrained in the whole movie that I really wanted it to be cathartic, for her and the audience. …I was just thinking about all of the rage women have. She’s very much smashing the patriarchy.”

On playing historical New England bag girl characters: “I was born in Massachusetts, and I’ve been drawn to those characters… There’s a whole contemporary interest in witches. I’ve written a short film that I’m going to begin in the next couple of months about these women and the powers they claim to have.”

On the challenges of directing a film: “I had to be the one to ask Kristen Stewart [to be in the movie], and I had to pursue her. That’s what difficult about producing – having to be pushy is hard for me.”

On not being taken seriously as an actress: “People should consider the variety of characters I’ve played, the different roles, and – for lack of a better word – the craft. I don’t think people recognize me as being a good actress. Some of them think I’m just into fashion.” (source)
