Beyonce covers the May issue of Vogue UK, boasts “I am a modern-day feminist”

Beyonce covers the May issue of Vogue UK, and today we’re getting our first look at the pictures! I like the cover (enough), but the other two pictures are really rather boring for Vogue, aren’t they?

In the interview, Beyonce opens up about being a feminist, Mrs. Carter and a mother. Here are some clips:

Beyonce a feminist? “That word can be very extreme… But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I’m just a woman and I love being a woman. If you’re attractive then you can’t be sexy, and you can’t be intelligent? What is all of that?…”

On being called Mrs. Carter: “I do believe in equality and that we have a way to go and it’s something that’s pushed aside and something that we have been conditioned to accept. But I’m happily married. I love my husband. I feel like Mrs Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been. It comes from knowing my purpose and really meeting myself once I saw my child. I was like, ‘OK, this is what you were born to do.’ The purpose of my body became completely different.”

On motherhood: “I definitely want my daughter to have goals and drive and passion – it has to be a balance. I hope she figures it out. Whatever makes her happy, I’m there. I do feel like I’m going to be honest with my daughter.”

I think Beyonce comes off as a super feminist. Doesn’t she? I mean I don’t think that’s necessarily a horrible thing, but what’s different about a modern-day feminist vs. a plain ol’ feminist? Food for thought.

Jada Pinkett Smith speaks out in support of Justin Bieber, who’s “simply trying to build a life”

Jada Pinkett Smith looks absolutely gorgeous! The 41-year-old actress stepped out today making an appearance on ‘Good Morning America.’

Jada wore two gorgeous outfits while out today. She is just getting more beautiful with age!

While appearing on GMA, Jada talked about an essay she wrote on Facebook about bullying.

“It’s been interesting because I started with the idea of bullying but, I tell you something, I’ve actually expanded my ideas on that after seeing all the press on this particular subject. I think we have to be very careful that we’re not creating prejudiced attitudes….that you can justify treating a person lesser than because of certain qualities,” she explained.

Last month Jada went off on bullies attacking young stars, such as Justin Bieber. The singer, who is a good friend of her son Jaden, received criticism after a string of altercations with paparazzi and a brief hospitalization.

In an open letter on her Facebook page, she asked “How can we ask for our young stars to have a high level of responsibility if we are not demonstrating that same level of responsibility towards them? Do we feel as though we can say and do what we please without demonstrating any responsibility simply because they are famous?”

“Is it okay to continually attack and criticise a famous 19 year old who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about as he carries the weight of supporting his family as well as providing the pay checks to others who depend on him to work so they can feed their families as well? Does that render being called a c*** by an adult male photographer as you try to return to your hotel after leaving the hospital? (sic)”

What do you think – does Jada have a point?

Kim Kardashian has gained 65 pounds by scarfing down fried chicken and waffles.

Kim Kardashian, 32, and Kanye West, 35, were spotted this afternoon arriving at an airport in Paris, where they’ll catch a flight home to Los Angeles.

What did Kim do while she was in Paris? Well ATE, according to RadarOnline. They are reporting that Kim has already gained 65 pounds – and she’s doing so by binging on high calorie foods.

The reality star, who recently went on a media blitz slamming her pregnancy weight haters claiming that she hasn’t put on that many pounds and is eating a super healthy and wholesome diet, has actually gained 65 pounds, the new issue of In Touch claims, due to her eating her feelings and binging on fattening foods – and has the details.

“She’s eating her feelings,” an insider tells the magazine about Kim, who is upset that her boyfriend and baby daddy Kanye West is in Paris during her pregnancy, leaving her alone in Los Angeles. (Even though she’s obviously in Paris with him?)

“She’s hungry all the time and getting bigger and bigger,” a close friend adds. “She hasn’t just gained 20 pounds like she claims. She’d already gained 45 to 50 when she still had four months to go! This is a time when she needs Kanye the most, and he’s not there.”

“She’s lonely and feels fat,” says another family insider. “She’s terrified she’ll never get her body back.”

Where is all this weight coming from?

While in Atlanta, she was spotting “scarfing down” greasy chicken and waffles, smashed bliss potatoes and waffles, collard greens and mac and cheese. The chicken and waffles alone are estimated to contain 1,100 calories.

Kim has hit Beverly Hills Italian spot Il Pastaio on more than one occasion, indulging in loads of carbs.

“Kim ate the same dish both times – creamy mushroom risotto,” a spy told the magazine about the dish, which contains 1,300 calories. “She also ate bread with olive oil, and the second time she came in she also shared the arancini [fried rice balls] appetizers.”

Kim has also indulged at In-N-Out, even sharing a photo on Instagram, where a burger and cheese fries contain 1,055 calories and 40 grams of fat.

The more she eats, however, the worse she feels about her body.

“Kim is over being pregnant and hates her new curves,” a source concludes. “She feels like she can’t be herself and wear fabulous clothes and be sexy. Her very identity has been stripped away – and it’s driving her insane.”

Ah leave the girl alone. Who cares what she’s doing. I read somewhere that Kim was fattening up on purpose in order to secure a Weight Watchers deal – ala Jessica Simpson. I’m sure before baby is born she’ll have SOME deal signed regarding her weight loss. Mark my words…

Selena Gomez is still torturing Justin Bieber. Allegedly.

Justin Bieber has been out of control lately, but it’s not because he’s trying to “act like an adult,” but rather because he’s suffering his first heartbreak…and it’s all Selena Gomez’s fault.

According to TMZ, Justin was “torn apart” when Selena broke up with him in December. Rumor has it she walked out on him in the middle of their Mexico vacation.

Apparently Justin feels “tortured,” because Selena hasn’t made a clean break. She is still regularly calling him, and confusing him with mixed messages – which is messing with his head.

According to TMZ Justin was spotted leaving Selena’s L.A. home last week.

Our sources say … the pot smoking in Newport Beach, the reckless driving and the fighting has all occurred after the split, and they say it’s very clear that Bieber is holding a lot of anger that he’s releasing … often inappropriately.

Aw….. young love. Ain’t it grand.
