Sorry guys, still no pictures of her baby … yet.

Lauren London on….

her beauty secrets
I don’t even think I’m all that cute but I maintain a clean face and make sure I have a mani and pedi once a week. I think it’s important for women to take care of their nails, hair, skin and feet. That’s it. I keep it natural and simple … but when I get some sun, I’m all ready. That [tan] would be a beauty secret if I had one.”

her pregnancy
I had a pregnancy that wasn’t private … A lot of people had their opinions about it. They were surprised that I came up pregnant, which was a surprise to me, because I’m a woman and women get pregnant and Lauren comes first before the actress, so having my son was the best thing that ever happened to me,

My hair hasn’t changed, but my outlook on clothes, movies [and] interviews that I do are gonna be different from when I first came out.

Janet Jackson covers A&U magazine


Singer/actress Janet Jackson covers the latest issue of A&U (America’s AIDS Magazine).  In this issue, Jackson talks about her new book,  her views of the disease and more. View some of the snippets from the interview below.


Janet on the importance of talking about AIDS:

“And we should also feel comfortable talking about the disease at home and in our community. It is important that we tell our kids to love themselves enough to protect themselves. It’s all our responsibility.”

Janet on getting tested for HIV:

“Yes I do, and I suggest that everyone who is sexually active do it, too.”

Janet on her new book,” True Y0u” which will be released in 2011:

“I recently wrote a book entitled True You. It’s about my experiences internalizing everything, holding everything in, feeling inadequacy and shame. How I was able to begin to achieve happiness was by having that [one particular] person to open up to.”

Janet on why she cares so much about AIDS/HIV:

“I want to help! This is a horrible disease that affects us all. It doesn’t discriminate. I want to do my part.” She concludes: “I think it’s important for all of us to get involved. This is the only way that we are going to get a hold of this disease, especially with the youth, and in third-world countries. All of us need to help….”

Anyplace where there is warm weather, a beautiful beach, and palm trees.

What’s your favorite city in the whole world?
I don’t have just one. Paris, Rome, Tokyo…There are so many!

Finish this sentence. The one thing about fame I don’t like is…
…lack of privacy.

What do you think happens after we die?
I don’t think we die, just the shell does. The spirit lives on.

Name your favorite film of all time!
Raging Bull, The Last Emperor, Scarface with Al Pacino, The Godfather I & II, Amélie….There are so many.

Do you look up to anyone as a role model?
Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor, just to name two.

Out of the many people you have met, is there one in particular who stands out who impressed you, influenced you, or inspired you the most?
It was a true honor meeting Mandela and spending time with him at his home.

Who would you like to meet that you haven’t yet?
Jesus. There are so many questions I want answers [to].
