Tim McGraw and wife Faith Hill collectively cover the December issue of VEGAS.
Despite the rumors, Hill and McGraw are still going strong as a couple. In this joint interview, the pair discuss their kids, working together, going on tour and much more.
Check out some snippets from their Vegas interview below.
On their careers:
“It’s not like, ‘Well, now we’ve gotten to a point in our career where we’re not touring anymore and we’re not gonna make records and we’re not gonna do this or that, so we’re gonna go to Vegas and play.’ Everything that we want to do in our careers is available. So we can pick and choose and do the things that we want to do, and line ’em up in a way that works for our lives.”
On stadium vs. theaters tours:
“The big difference is in between songs and when you’re talking to the audience. You can talk to everybody, and in a lot of cases you can hear people [respond]. And that’s when it becomes fun and it becomes sort of [spontaneous]. And it also becomes a relationship in a different way than it is in a big arena. In this theater you really feel like you get to know the audience in a different way. And I feel like they get you to know you in a different way.”
On their relationship painted in songs:
“Being exposed like [‘I Need You’] in a song relationship-wise, especially for us and our 17 years together and our family, that just puts an exclamation mark on what the evening’s all about, really. There’s music and there’s us performing together and there’s us performing each other’s songs and all those sorts of things. But at the end of the day, the show, Soul2Soul is about us and our relationship. And I think that the song sort of encapsulates all of that in one moment.”
On working with Tim M.:
“We’ve not worked together since we went on our last tour in, I guess, 2007, the big Soul2Soul tour. Our kids were much younger then, and it was easier to kind of load ’em up and bring the entire circus on the road. So when the Venetian approached us with the possibility of doing a few weekends for them, one of the first things that they offered was that they would work within our schedule parameters. The Venetian was so brilliant in how they accommodated us in such a way that it was one of the greatest experiences that we have ever had playing live together. I mean, this beautiful 1,800-seat theater, working around our children’s sports schedules and proms and all this kind of stuff that goes on once you get kids in high school, not to mention artistically. We were able to bring basically the design of a stadium-style show and put it into a theater.”
On their children visiting while they’re on tour:
“Well, our oldest daughter saw one show and only because a friend of hers came. I think she left early. But our two youngest daughters, no, have actually not seen it,but they’ve accompanied us [to Vegas]. They love being there and were sad when it ended last time. They’re kids, so they definitely find things to occupy [themselves]. They’ve seen most shows that are age-appropriate for them. Of course, they love Topshop. And they also enjoy just the behind-the-stage, you know, hanging out with the band. And the dressing room. It’s fun for them. The Venetian took really great care of us, so they were a little bits spoiled.”

Their singles might be selling like hotcakes, but Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber are not highly favored.
Cyrus is No. 6 on GQ’s list of the 25 Least Influential People of 2013.
Dennis Rodman took the No.1 spot for his odd friendship with the dictator of North Korea. Paula Deen comes in at No.2 for her admitted use of the N-word and Justin Bieber is somewhere in the top 25.
Even President Barack Obama is on the list at No. 17, because under his direction, “nothing gets done.”
Jodi Arias, Dr. Cornel West, Tim Tebow, Mike Jeffries, Ryan Reynolds, Lady Gaga, Will Smith and his family, and Prince George also made the list.
Michael Douglas has been named ‘Diva of the Year’ by GQ magazine. The actor is one of the few men featured in the magazine’s Men of the Year issue.
GQ magazine sat down with the actor to discuss his marriage,playing Liberace, his son’s imprisonment and much more.
Check out some of his GQ interview highlights below.
On playing Liberace in Behind the Candelabra:
“I’m actually taking sort of joy, a revengeful joy, in the fact that all the studios turned [the film] down. To me it was just a reflection of how constipated and conservative the studios have become.”
On his critic’s reaction to his performance:
“Well, I’ve always felt a little underestimated, personally. I’ve got a pretty good batting average over forty years.Sometimes maybe it looked easy.”
On his separation from Catherine Zeta-Jones:
“I hope to resolve my marriage in a positive fashion.”
On his son Cameron being in prison:
“I’m really turning my anger on the system, because I’m realizing just how unfair it is for so many nonviolent drug-involved criminals. While in jail, my son, initially sentenced to five years, was caught with drugs. They gave him an additional four and a half year to his sentence and put him in solitary for eleven months, and no family visits for two years. [His extra sentence for such a ‘slip’ is] the longest by far in the history of the United States penal system.”
James Gandolfini is gone, but not forgotten. GQ magazine has composed a touching cover and feature, honoring the late actor who died in June 2013.
Gandolfini’s longtime friend, German watchmaker Michael Kobold, shared stories about the actor and his own feelings about Gandolfini as well.
Check out what he had to say about Gandolfini below.
On James’ mercurial temperament:
“I’d been scanning ‘The New York Times’ for hours when Jim shuffled out, grumbled at me, and sat down to red the ‘New York Post.’ For five minutes or so, we had a one-sided conversation… Jim’s grip on the paper began to tighten until he was practically crumpling it. ‘So help me God, if you ask me one more f***ing question, I will get you deported, you f***ing German!’ he yelled. Jim’s temper could run hot, but it also passed quickly. Ten minutes later, after some coffee, he smiled at me. ‘I’m sorry, Kobold, but you can be so f***ing annoying in the morning.’ ‘I’ll try to be less happy tomorrow,’ I told him. ‘No, don’t do that. Just don’t direct your happiness towards me.'”
On Michael’s difficulties to bring James’ body home from Italy:
“The initial news in Rome wasn’t good: Paticia Hill, the U.S. vice consul at the embassy told me it would be as long as a week before the body could be cleared. Jim had passed on Wednesday night and was already at the morgue by the time I got to Rome the next morning. After an autopsy, he would be held until we could get his remains repatriated. But in the near term, progress was looking grim.”
On Michael addressing James’ death:
“The minute that door opened, it was like stepping into a movie scene: There were probably ten TV cameras, twenty still photographers, and so many journalists that every seat in the small meeting room was filled. The spillover was standing along the walls. If you watch the tape, I seem cold and wooden – the prototypical German! – but I was basically frozen with fear, capable only of reading a prepared statement. ‘Today, we received the results of the autopsy, which stated he died of a heart attack, of natural causes.’ I read. ‘Once we have the clearance, we will put him on a flight to America. It is up to the Italian authorities to decide how quickly.’ I took no questions. And then I had to do it again the next day and the one after.”
