Kate Upton does double duty for the Spring 2014 issue of V magazine.
The model is featured both clothed and in a swimsuit for the covers.
In this issue, Upton reveals that she was hurt when Victoria’s Secret casting director Sophia Neophitou said “we would never use” her for a photo shoot in 2012.
She told V Magazine, “I had just gotten my cover of Sports Illustrated that day. I wasn’t used to that kind of media swirl.”
“I had never met her, so it really came out of nowhere. It was my introduction to being in the spotlight and having people you’ve never met have an opinion of you.”
Are you loving Upton’s covers?
Despite the recent controversy surrounding her relationship with fiance Dwyane Wade, actress Gabriel Union is in-love and there’s nothing anyone can do about it.
The Being Mary Jane actress chatted with Glamour about love and relationships. She even has some tips for the ladies out there come Valentine’s Day.
DO forget your “type.”
“It worked for me. When I met Dwyane, his ‘résumé’ looked like crap: athlete, going through a divorce, nine years younger than me. None of that screamed, ‘Let’s have a lasting relationship.’ Then, after I had a heart-crushing breaking with yet another immature jerk, I thought, it can’t be any worse if I date a fetus. Let’s just see what happens. Turned out he’d been on his own since he was 15. He had wisdom that comes with facing an insane amount of adversity. He’s sweet, funny, honest about his shortcomings. When I put my preconceived notions to the side, I found someone cool.”
DON’T put up with a friend-versus-boyfriend tug-of-war.
“Some friends act possessive and say, ‘You’re not spending enough time with me.’ Huh? Remember when we made our vision boards and the dude was in the middle? You’re sup- posed to be happy for me. Thankfully, my girls are like, ‘High-five!’ And D likes to be around them too. If there’s weirdness, either something’s wrong with the friends—or the boy. Investigate. And sift accordingly.”
DO show him your feelings. Daily.
“Dwyane generally gets up before I do to go to the gym, and he’s never left without kissing me and telling me he loves me. As for me, I am complimentary to the point where I am almost a little Chester the Molester-y. I think he’s so delicious. Watching him get out of the shower never gets old. Never. It’s not like he ever wonders what I’m thinking, but usually he’s thinking, She needs a cold shower!”
DON’T write off an ex (or get back together) without really thinking it through.
“When you’re debating whether to go backward or forward, you have to look at the original issue. [When Dwyane and I broke up briefly in 2013], it was because of distance and scheduling. I finished filming the show, then I flew to Vegas right away to start shooting Think Like a Man Too. I couldn’t take time off, and I missed some quality togetherness we desperately needed. Over the summer, I reassessed priorities. I’d always wanted an awesome career with back-to-back projects, but I realized I wasn’t willing to sacrifice my relationship for it. Moving forward, I decided my work schedule has to make sense for our family. Bottom line: If an issue’s a deal breaker, it’s a deal breaker. If your relationship isn’t something you’re willing to give up and you can compromise, do so.”

It’s been almost five years since Jordin Sparks has released an album and the frustration has gotten to the starlet. During a recent interview with Huff Post Live, Sparks revealed that she has completed a full album, but she still hasn’t been able to release it.
When asked how long does it take to release an album, Sparks responded, “Thank you! Ask them,” and motioned off-screen to some unidentified people. “How long does it take?”
She even hinted at possibly releasing her music independently.
“I think I have a really amazing door that just opened up with hopefully being able to get an album out working with a person I really trust, and getting it out on my own,”
Though understandably frustrated, Sparks did keep her composure and offered some kind words about her label, RCA.
“They’ve done so many amazing things for me, so I don’t want this to come off like, I hate them, because I don’t,” she said. “It’s just — I’m a little bit frustrated because I really want to put this music out for my fans, and it’s really good.”
Check out Sparks’ sit-down below.

Katy Perry covers the new issue of Marie Claire Australia.
Katy Perry is standing up for her fellow musician, Miley Cyrus. In the new issue of Marie Claire Australia, Perry supports Cyrus’ decision to live her life the way she sees fit.
“I think it’s just for anyone who feels a little bit down in the dumps, like they don’t have any strength. Sometimes I write these anthems because I need that boost too. I wrote [it] when I felt like I was going inward with my problems. Sometimes your biggest bully in life can be yourself – can be the person standing in the way of your success, and sometimes you have to give yourself a boost. That was what ‘Roar’ was about. It is me, as I would imagine, an uptight New York girl who crashed in the jungle, and over the course of the music video she finds her strength and makes friends with the animals she was scared of at first.”
On Miley Cyrus:
“You know what – she’s so young and she’s trying to figure it out, too. She’s just finding her bearing right now – and, God you really don’t know how much pressure and insane scrutiny there is in this world until you’re in their shoes. I think that everyone just deserves in [that] type of position because it’s a really hard level to play at.”
On her album, Prism:
“I started PRISM in November 2012 and I was in a darker place in my life. There was a song called ‘By the Grace of God’.. Which paints a picture about how low I was… Feeling like I wasn’t enough, it wasn’t possible for me to be loved. From a lot of search for help… through a lot of changing how I think about myself… On this record, there’s a song called ‘Love Me’ which is a song about loving yourself first in order to be loved properly.”
