Katy Perry Covers Rolling Stone Magazine [Summer Issue]

Gwyneth Paltrow Covers SELF Magazine

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow covers the latest issue of Self magazine. Don’t expect to hear about her music career in this issue. though.  Paltrow tells Self that her butt is one of her problem areas, who knew? She also touches on what she eats and her fitness secret.  Rea soem snippets from the feature below.

On her challenge areas:
“My butt! My butt, butt, butt. When Tracy met me, she said that I had a long, square butt that she was going to redesign, and I was, like, “Yeah? Good luck.” The amazing thing is, she was right! And it’s still changing!”

How she stays sane about her body:
“I’ve found what works for me. I know if I put in an hour and a half, five days a week, I’m good. If I’m on vacation and, like, “F— it, I’m not working out,” I know what to do when I get back. A lot of women think, “Oh, my God, I could never get there,” but I don’t think that’s true. It’s simply relative to how much you put into it.”

How consistent she stays, foodwise:
“I say I always eat right, but last night, I had fried clams, pasta with duck sausage and two glasses of red wine. When I want to lose, I eat less pasta, bread and potatoes. Before last year’s Iron Man 2 premiere, I did green juices and salads for three days.”

Gwyneth’s fitness secret:
“I do 45 minutes of cardio five days a week, because I like to eat. I also try for 45 minutes of muscular structure work, which is toning, realigning and lengthening. If I’m prepping for something or I’ve been eating a lot of pie, I do two hours a day, six days a week for two weeks.”

Jennifer Hudson: “I’m not in the Illuminati”

For years, there’s been talk that certain musicians were parts of a secret order called The Illuminati.  Essentially, if you happen to be famous and rich, you got some help from this secret society in order to get there.  Jennifer Hudson spoke openly on the topic and proclaimed that she in fact not a part of the secret society.

“I’m so glad someone brought this Illuminati mess up because only a child of God would address it,” the 29-year-old singer told fans during her Ustream session. “That is the most ignorant thing I have ever heard in my life. And it’s offensive because basically what? The people that are here today don’t deserve to be where they are? What, we didn’t work for it? So I find—and I hate to go there—but I find it’s those that can’t make it that would probably join Illuminati, or whoever that is, to get somewhere.”

Hudson went on to explain that those who believe the Illuminati myth are being foolish. “Don’t listen to that type of stuff, don’t follow that stuff because those people are only luring you in to become a part of some mess like that, so know that you’re only falling victim,” she warned. “That’s their way of gaining [followers]. I’d advise you to stay away from it. Those who are reading it are falling into it. It could not be more untrue.”

Aretha Franklin: “The problem has been resolved”

Aretha Franklin is finally talking about her mystery illness. The singer sat down with Jet Magazine once again to speak about what has been going on with her health-wise.  Franklin knew something was off when she had a very hard pain in her side. 

“I am not one to do a lot of talking about my personal health or business. Not too much, not too much. There are a lot of people who will talk about anything, as long as there is somebody listening. But I am not one of those people. That’s not Aretha.”
Franklin hasn’t addressed the pancreatic cancer rumors because she feels that her health is between her and her doctors solely. And that’s why she says she’s not discussing the news reports and rumors that she is battling pancreatic cancer.

“I am not going to even deal with that,” she states. “I don’t have to talk about my health with anybody other than my doctors. The problem has been resolved.”

The singer strongly encourages people to monitor their health. “If there is anything happening with you that is uncommon and something that you know should not be happening, go to your doctor. Be determined to find out what is going on.”
When Franklin first had the pain, she thought it was due to a colonoscopy she had.
“I had a colonoscopy and it showed nothing was wrong. I associated the pain in my side with the colonoscopy that I had within a day or two before. I got up at 2 o’clock in the morning and called the doctor who did the colonoscopy and told him what was happening. He said, ‘Miss Franklin, whatever it is, it is not from the colonoscopy. You need to come home and have a CAT-scan.’ Thank God he said that because that unfolded everything, what the problem was and everything.”

Finally Aretha reveals why she decided to speak out to her fans, “I know my fans are concerned. Let them know I am feeling great and coming along.”
She sends out a message of gratitude for her fans worldwide. “I want to thank my fans and friends and supporters who have prayed for me and sent me beautiful cards and flowers. Please continue to respect my privacy as I continue to recover.”

Well it  looks like Vivica Fox will be walking down the aisle again. The actress got engaged over the holidays to  boyfriend, Omar “Slim” White.

According to a Page Six, the 27-year-old promoter asked Fox to marry him on Dec. 26 with an eight-karat ring.  Fox, 46, wasn’t bashful about  displaying her ring at LeBron James’ 26th birthday gathering  a few days later.

This engagement might come as a shock to those who thought “Slim” was just using Fox for her fame and fortune.

Here’s  what Fox had to say about having a baby:
“My career has been my baby for such a long time and I’ve done well by that,” she said. “I waited for God to send me a good man, and he’s a good Southern man.”
“I’m very fertile, so I don’t think that I would have a problem.”

Aretha Franklin sat  for the firs time since  her health to speak with Jet magazine.  Although she’s taking it easy, the legendary singer seems to be in  good spirits. Franklin declined to state whether or not reports of her having pancreatic cancer were true.

Here’s some snippets from the interview-

How is Aretha feeling these days:

“I feel great. The doctors say I can do whatever I feel like I am up to do. Of course, that doesn’t mean any concerts or anything like that. But I can do things around the house, and today I am just piddling around the house.”
Aretha on what she’s been doing lately:
“I am putting Aretha together first,” she tells Jet. “This is Aretha time to do whatever it is that I need to do. But I will talk more later.” “It is good to sit up, too,” Franklin added. “I also might make one or two business calls. Not too much, just a teeny bit.”

Franklin told Vibe that even though she has a private nurse, her family and friends are taking goof care of her.
Franklin on Stevie Wonder, Oprah Winfrey, Patti LaBelle and Dionne Warwick sending her well-wishes:

“They know that I am a lot more than the girl in the Pink Cadillac on the Freeway of Love who also sings about Respect,” she said of her pals. “They pray without ceasing for me.” “God has given me the greatest gift already for the holidays,” Franklin gushed of her improved health. “I am so grateful.”
