#NickJonas and #DemiLovato : Billboard Magazine Buddies

From their Disney beginnings to their current US tour, Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato have always shared a special bond.

In their cover story for the July 30th, 2016 issue of Billboard magazine, the “Cool For Summer” chick and the “Jealous” hunk discuss how they support each other when they’re having a bad day on the road.

Nick explains, “My first instinct is to be like, let's get out of the sh*t, let's pull ourselves out of the rough. Demi can sit there a little longer,” and Demi replies, “Women are more emotional and sometimes I just want to be heard. So to have him listen is very helpful.”

Furthermore, states Jonas, “I'm in a bizarre time in my life where I'm single, but that has been tricky. And she likes drama, so I'm able to talk about my dating shit without feeling bad.” And Lovato clarifies, “He's a guy in his 20s and he's famous and he likes to have a lot of fun. Listen, even when he was in a relationship, I was like, ‘Get out of that. You could f-- anybody that you want right now, so have fun and do that.’”

#KendallJenner Talks #Kardashian Fame & Caitlyn In Vogue's September 2016 Issue

Having transcended childhood TV infamy to become a breakout model of her generation, Kendall Jenner was picked to adorn the September 2016 issue of Vogue magazine.

The 20-year-old beauty posed in a skin-baring Gucci frock for the front page shot while changing into dresses from the likes of Proenza Schouler and Maison Margiela for the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot spread.

Set to hit newsstands on August 23rd, highlights from Miss Jenner's accompanying interview with Jonathan Van Meter are below!

On liking to get dirty, working with her hands and figuring stuff out:
“We had ATVs and go-carts, and I grew up riding them all the time, which is why I’m a good driver,” Kendall says. “It’s super-ironic to think about now, but it’s something I can thank my dad for: how much of a tomboy I was. That’s why I think the whole thing— her transition— was really hard for me, because I was like ‘But you taught me everything tomboy!’” It has gotten easier. “I knew it was going to have its rough phase,” she says. “But it’s all supernormal now. It’s not weird at all. Sometimes I look at a picture of my dad when she was a guy, and it makes me a little sad— I get emotional. You have to get past it— you’ve got a new person to love. It’s kind of a blessing in disguise— if that’s not the wrong way to say it."

On mention that the name Kardashian has turned into an oft unkind adjective:
“Oh my God, I toadually get what you’re saying,” she says. “People say a lot of what they think, and it’s not always positive. And we never say anything. We just take it. And then when people meet us, they’re pleasantly surprised. Because we aren’t what people think. One of the best lessons I ever learned from my sisters is not to take everything so seriously. Just leave it alone— it will pass in a week. That’s how I grew up. My sisters are so f**king strong, and they taught me and my little sister to just toughen up and not let it affect us. You know whats real.”

On the impact and experience her transgender father has had on her:
“We’re very accepting of people and being different and being who you are. We’re not judgemental. But obviously it’s strange to having your dad, who was so male, completely reverse. It is definitely a gnarly experience. But my whole life we would, like, catch her, and we would be like, What is going on here? I think we know, but do we? At one point, Kylie and I thought he was cheating on my mom, because he had makeup and nail polish. One time we found those squishy boob things. We found wigs. And then one time I actually ran into her. In this house. She had no idea. She would wake up really early just so she could dress up and move around the house and get that little kick for the morning, and then go back to being Bruce— take us to school, totally normal. So one morning I woke up at 4:00 A.M. so thirsty, came downstairs into the kitchen, and grabbed a bottle of water. And as I was coming back out, my dad was coming down the stairs in, like, a wig and makeup and shoes—the full nine. And she didn’t see me. I literally froze. Please don’t turn left. Because she could either turn left or right. Thank God she turned right and— to this day!— has no idea that happened. That was the first time I had ever seen her.” She pauses for a moment. “My mom knew. She knew since their third date."

#MirandaKerr 's Swimsuit Sexy Harper’s BAZAAR September 2016 Shoot

Adding to her list of high profile features, the lovely Miranda Kerr opened up the doors to her new, eco-conscious Malibu home for Harper’s BAZAAR’s September 2016 issue.

For the fashion publication, set to hit newsstands August 16, the devoted model mommy donned attire including Hermès and La Perla swimsuits, as well as a Carolina Herrera gown paired with Jimmy Choo sandals, for the Douglas Friedman shot spread.

As for the location, Miss Kerr selected a charming ranch style abode near the beach with ocean views and eco-friendly touches that she now happily calls home - with highlights from her accompanying interview below!

On her decision to move from New York to Malibu (when she was with former husband Orlando Bloom):
“Orlando and I were living in New York, and we loved it there, but we were considering what the best options were for our son [Flynn]… We thought it would be a better lifestyle for Flynn. He could be outside playing year-round, playing in the sand. We could have a garden.”

On love at first sight for her new home:
“I knew that this house was it at first sight. It needed a lot of work, but it had a great view. It wasn’t right on the water, so it was protected from the wind and very private. I could just see the potential. It felt so right. In some ways it felt like a tree house. That was another thing that I loved. It’s all open, and the view of the ocean makes it feel more spacious.”

On the gift from fiancé Spiegel for her new home—a machine made by Island Sky which draws moisture from the humidity in the air and produces enough water for the entire house:
“This property was a dust bowl when I bought it and now it’s so green. Obviously I’m aware of the drought problem in California. This [Skywater 300] system really just pulls water out of the sky. It was a very thoughtful present because he knows how much I love a garden.”

On adding elements of her childhood into her home:
“When I was a child, I spent a lot of time at my grandma’s house. People were coming in and out. She was always in the kitchen making something. There was always food and snacks. She would play the piano, and we would sing and dance. So those were my two priorities. I wanted to have a piano and a great kitchen, which is always the heart of the home.”

10 Makeup Tricks Every Woman Needs to Know

We all put on makeup (at least some of the time), but is your technique yielding the best possible results? Here, Kimberly Soane, the director of artistry at Bobbi Brown, offers up some simple pointers to make sure we're using everything from concealer to bronzer to mascara right.
Never put concealer or foundation on your eyelids as a base, it will cause your eye makeup to crease.

Use your fingers to apply your foundation if you want sheer coverage and a brush if you more polished, medium to full coverage.

Always apply powder where you are shiniest first, which it usually your T-zone, with a very light dusting everywhere else.

You should put bronzer on your neck, face, and chest to even out your skin tone. Be sure to take a step back and make sure everything is the same color.

When applying blush, first smile, then start on the apple of the cheek, blend the blush back towards the top of the ear, then down toward the jawline.

Always apply your brow pencil or powder to the upper portion of the eyebrow to lift your face up.

You want to make sure your lipstick is not too defined at your cupid's bow (the top of your lip), and that it goes all the way out to the inner corners of your mouth. Be sure to press down hard as you apply.

Always start with a base shadow without any shimmer that matches the lightest skin tone on your face and apply all over your lid up to the brow. You should use this base shadow to make sure the darker shadows used on your lid up to the crease are properly blended 
Instead of looking straight ahead at the mirror, get as close to it as possible, stick your head up and bring your chin toward the mirror. You want to look down as you apply, starting at the inner corner and making sure to go all the way out to the fold on the outside of the eye.
You don't want to do quick soft motions when you apply mascara. Instead, jam the wand into the root of the lash and do zigzag motions as you go up.

Hillary Clinton: 7 Ways She's Just Like Daenerys Targaryen

Hillary Clinton is the mother of Chelsea Clinton.

But did you also know that Hillary Clinton is very similar to The Mother of Dragons?

We refer, of course, to the beloved Game of Thrones character played by Emilia Clarke.

It's true! The Democratic nominee for President is really just like Daenerys Targaryen is many ways. We count them below...

1. Hillary vs. Daenerys

Hillary vs. Daenerys
We can start with the fact that both are often referred to by their nicknames. The "Breaker of Chains," is one name given to Khaleesi; while "Crooked" is often attached to Hillary by her opponents.

2. Both are Backed by Fan Favorites 

Both are Backed by Fan Favorites
President Obama has Hillary's back; while Tyrion is fully on Team Dany after Season 6.

3. Both Come from Families with Scandalous Backgrounds 

Both Come from Families with Scandalous Backgrounds
The Clintons will do anything to get their way, some argue. This was most definitely true of The Mad King, as well.

4. Both Fight for the Underdog 

Both Fight for the Underdog

Dany is all about freeing slaves from their shackles. Hillary wants to help the middle class.

5. Women Love Them Both 

Women Love Them Both
In different ways, mind you. But still. Both have totally locked down the female vote.

6. Both Make Passionate Speeches 

Both Make Passionate Speeches

From the stage of the DNC or from stop a dragon. Whatever. It's all the same, really.

7. Both Love to Ride Animals 

Both Love to Ride Animals

Some might call Bill Clinton more of a dog than a dragon, but you get the point

Michael Fassbender And ALicia VIkander Met On The Dancefloor

Michael Fassbender first met his girlfriend Alicia Vikander when she showed him up on the dancefloor.

The X-Men actor began dating the Swedish actress in 2014 while they were filming upcoming drama The Light Between Oceans. While it has been reported they met on the set, they actually first encountered each other on the dancefloor following film events, when Alicia, who trained to be a ballerina, put his dancing skills to shame.

"We had met at Toronto Film Festival and the BAFTAs, just on the dance floor," Alicia explains to ETOnline.com. Continuing the interview, reporter Carly Steel says to Michael that she's seen him grooving and he's a good dancer, to which the star replies, "I thought that too until she started dancing and then I felt like I had two left feet."

The pair met properly for rehearsals for the film and Michael, 39, admits they didn't have to work hard to achieve the chemistry needed to play a couple because "it was sort of there from the beginning".

The film, about a couple who discover an abandoned child and informally adopt her, appears to be an emotionally intense drama fit for awards season, but the cast kept the tone light by dancing to keep themselves warm and playing with BB guns inside the make-up shed.

"We had the headshots of everybody on the wall and we were shooting them," Michael adds. "And we had a lot of good music dancing in the morning."

The couple are notoriously private and rarely discuss their relationship or appear together at red carpet events. However, Alicia, 27, kissed him during the 2016 Oscars in March (16) when she was named winner of the Best Supporting Actress prize for The Danish Girl.

The Light Between Oceans is released in the U.S. on 2 September (16) but doesn't reach U.K. theatres until November (16).
