Queen Latifah covers the October issue of MORE magazine.
The new daytime talk show host chatted with the magazine about reconciling with her father, caring for her ailing mother and confronting things that terrify her.
Check out some snippets below.
On her talk show this time around:
“This is a learning experience. I’m not going to pretend to be Oprah Winfrey. That woman built a 25-year show. I’ve got to get through week one, then month one. I expect to make mistakes and learn and grow.”
On her brother and going to therapy:
“Jada was the ﬁrst person who got me to go to therapy. I was really having problems dealing with the loss. I didn’t feel. It was like I had a circuit breaker. When I felt any emotion too much, whether it was joy, fear, love, it would turn right oﬀ. So that was scar- ing me. I thought I was about to live my life not living my life. I was doing things to numb whatever was left or looking for little rushes of some sort. Going through the motions, doing my job, showing up for work but not feeling.”
Hunky Olympian Louis Smith covers the new issue of Gay Times magazine.
The eligible bachelor chats it up with GT about gay marriage, Will Smith and much more.
Check out some snippets from his interview and his steamy photo shoot with GT below.
On if he had to be gay, who it would be with:
“I got asked this the other day…I said Will Smith. Because he’s very dedicated to his family, he’s very loyal, funny, hard working and talented. So, in the most non-sexual way, it would have to be based on the person.”
On thinking gay people should be allowed to marry too:
“What is ‘natural’? If someone says to you ‘act normal’ – what is ‘normal’? You can’t be defined. If you fall in love with someone you fall in love with someone.”
After the recent announcement that an Independence Day sequel was in the works, many fans wondered if Will Smith would be returning. Sadly, it has now been confirmed that he will not be a part of the sequel.
“[He] can not come back because he’s too expensive, but he’d also be too much of a marquee name,” the film’s director Roland Emmerich said (via Complex Magazine). “It would be too much.”“We’re not doing a total reboot, we’re doing something that’s totally unusual,” he added. “I think some aliens will be back.”
According to Just Jared, the sequel will reportedly be the first of a two part-story with the title ID Forever, Part 1.
Independence Day 2 hits theaters July 2015.
Aliens are headed back to earth, as a sequel to the 1996 film, Independence Day is currently in the works.
Fans can run, not walk, to the theater when Independence Day 2 is released on July 3, 2015.
Last week, Twentieth Century Fox announced the news of the follow-up to the blockbuster action sci-fi film.
It is not known whether or not Will Smith will reprise his role in the film. But his co-star Bill Pullman seems to be coming back for the sequel. He told Crave Online, “The Will Smith part of it may be ongoing but I think there’s strategies for both. I like what I have to do in both of them. I’m not in an old age home in a wheelchair being wheeled out for one more moment. It’s a very interesting conception of what happens to [my character] between then and when it picks back up.”
No other casting new or plot information has been released.
Drake is all-smiles on the cover of the July issue of GQ magazine.

The world loves Sandra Bullock and they just might love her even more as Miss Hannigan.
Bullock is currently in early talks to play the mean, yet witty Miss Hannigan in the remake of Annie, according to THR. The film, which is being put forth by Sony with Will Smith and Jay-Z producing, has already cast Quvenzhane Wallis in the titular role and Jamie Foxx as a modern version of Daddy Warbucks, named Benjamin Stacks.
Carol Burnett portrayed the role of Miss Hannigan in the 1982 musical adaptation of the comic strip. Her performance has lived on in the hearts of many, but Bullock just might be able to pull it off if all goes well.
Will Gluck is directing the film. Additional producers on the project include Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter and Jada Pinkett-Smith with Jay Brown and Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith through Marcy Media.
Sony is aiming to release the film sometime in 2014.
