Featured Article: Selena Gomez for Elle US October 2018

On supporting Demi Lovato: “All I’m saying is, I reached out personally. I didn’t do a public thing. I didn’t want to. I…I love her. I’ve known her since I was seven. So…it’s…that’s what I’ll say.”

On turning 26: “It’s peaceful. It’s weird. The moment I turned 26, I felt 26. Right now, I feel very sure of where I am. I don’t feel erratic or emotionally unstable. Or like I can’t handle my emotions, like I used to. It’s kind of understanding myself a little more. By all means I don’t have myself figured out. But it feels good.”

On the meaning behind ‘Flawless,’ a song on her upcoming album: “Meaning through all your imperfections, you’re flawless. You’re not striving. It’s me encouraging a younger version of myself. Even when you’re imperfect, even when you’re feeling worthless, you are flawless. It’s a song I’m going to sing for the rest of my life.” (source)

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: Taylor Swift for Harper’s Bazaar US August 2018


The August 2018 covers of Harper’s Bazaar US with Taylor Swift are photographed by Alexi Lubomirski with styling direction by Joanna Hillman. Hair and makeup by James Rowe and Lisa Eldridge, manicurist Charly Avenell.

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: Bryce Dallas Howard for Redbook May 2018


In the May issue of Redbook magazine, on newsstands April 17, cover star Bryce Dallas Howard (photographed by Yu Tsai), talks about swapping her infamous heels for boots in her upcoming film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the ‘astronomically different’ pay between male and female celebs and how even her dad Ron Howard was shocked by it, and being inspired by #TimesUp, to ask for what she’s worth.

On swapping her infamous heels for boots in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: “The first film for me was so much more challenging, but I didn’t realize it until I had boots on! Claire’s a girl who can totally sprint in heels, but maximum effort in boots is much easier.” As for herself, Bryce says, “I can do it, but do I want to?”

On the ‘astronomically different’ pay between male and female celebs and how even her dad Ron Howard was shocked: “I’m not a spender. I live in a three-bedroom house— in fact, we just downsized. I know that we’re privileged; we don’t have to worry about paying our rent or our medical bills. But I wish people knew that this is what the life of most successful female celebrities is. What we get paid is totally, completely, astronomically different than what male celebrities get paid. And for women of color, it’s a hundred times worse. Even my dad [Director Ron Howard] has been shocked at how expensive it is to be a woman in the industry. You’re told that it’s important to have a manager as well as an agent, and for a guy that’s not as important. That’s 20% out of your paycheck rather than 10%.”

On being inspired by #TimesUp, and asking for what she’s worth: “I’ve been [wimpy] about it in the past. I didn’t want people to think I wasn’t grateful for opportunities. I also get scared off by every threat during a negotiation. They’ll say, ‘We’ll just have to find someone else,’ and I back off. You can’t do that.”
