Iggy Azalea Is Very Into Plastic Surgery

iggy-april-cover-final

Iggy Azalea is back…and just as clueless as ever.

The thing is, I find Iggy’s music to be fun and catchy, but even after her tumultous 2015 it still doesn’t feel like she’s taking any time to REALLY reflect on her choices: the surgeries, the twitter feuds, the black issues, any of it. She was interviewed by Elle Canada on the eve her second album release, Digital Distortion, and the girl kept defending her choices in a way that felt less self-aware than it should.

Anyhow, here are the highlights of the interview:

On managing her own social media: “I’m back. But this time I’ve given myself some rules so I don’t get too sucked in again. For me, what happened, not just on social media but with everything in my career, was like a whirlwind. I started to feel like I was losing control over my own life. And it wasn’t just how people began perceiving me or the stories that were written about me—it was everything. I just felt like I had lost control of the whole thing to the point where it was like being on this rocket and then suddenly realizing you aren’t even driving it anymore. It was really scary.”

On her relationship to the hip hop community: “So many people think that I don’t care about rap music and the community, but I absolutely care about it, to the core of my being. That’s why the Q-Tip incident annoyed me so much: Why do you think I need a history lesson? Because surely if I did know anything about hip hop, I wouldn’t mix pop and rap together? Or I wouldn’t rap in an American accent if I truly understood? I just have a different perspective about rap music. I love learning about hip hop, I love reading about it and I actually love having debates with other people about it.”

On rapping about social issues: “I think it’s important for music to reflect what is going on socially and for there to be those kinds of voices within the industry. But I want to be that person you can listen to for four minutes and not think about that stuff at all, and it’s important to have that too…. I’m not going to suddenly start rapping about political matters; it’s just not what I do. There are other great people who do that, like Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. I’m not here to offer that commentary, but that doesn’t mean I don’t care. I don’t think everyone has to be everything—like, does Katy Perry have to start making songs about politics? I think it’s good to still be able to have a little fun.”

On getting plastic surgery: “I think, in 2016, people should be more accepting of the fact that both famous and non-famous women are having cosmetic procedures. That’s just the reality. And I think more people need to admit that shit so it doesn’t have to be so taboo—because we’re all doing it anyway…Everyone tells you that you should love your body the way it is, but then it is bad to say that you want to change something about yourself not because you want to look like someone else, just because you want to? What’s wrong with that?”

I’m not anti-plastic surgery, I just think we should examine (especially if you’re in your early 20’s and getting multiple procedures) WHY we get plastic surgery, and for WHOM. And WHY we’re making music, and for WHOM. To me, it doesn’t quite feel like the 25 year old is there yet.

Ashton Kutcher Wants His Relationship To Be Above All, PRIVATE.

Ashton Kutcher is interviewed in this month’s Elle Magazine, and he has some very interesting things to say on his love life, his career and his alleged mistresses.  To be honest, what’s most interesting is what Kutcher DOESN’T say!

On how people think he’s stupid: People fill in the blanks really fast. They go, ‘Oh my God, he’s on a show and [plays] stupid, so he must be stupid.’ I can’t control that, nor do I try to, nor do I want to. There’s something advantageous about having people underestimate your intellect, insomuch as a lot of things are revealed to you. They assume you don’t know what you’re talking about, then all of a sudden, you do. And the next thing you know, you have information you wouldn’t normally have.

Admits he’s in films for the money: There was a point in time where I was doing movies to be able to afford to live in a certain way. You know, I didn’t really go the starving-artist route. I kind of went and did massive, commercial things. [Two and a Half Men] is a very commercial show. But it’s very fun to do. I’m surrounded by an amazing group of people. And I can be home for dinner.

On privacy: You know, I’ve learned the hard way how valuable privacy is. And I’ve learned that there are a lot of things in your life that really benefit from being private. And relationships are one of them. And I am going to do everything in my power to have this relationship be private.

Alluding (kinda) to the mistresses who sold him out: When you become well known, you start to have suspicions about people’s intentions that you’re becoming close with. Because I think there’s been an artificial value that’s been put on fame in the world—people don’t want to do something. They just want to be famous. And so I think you develop a natural suspicion of that. And, you know, I have a little bit of naïveté about trusting people—with the notion that if you share and if you give to people, they’ll respect your privacy in turn. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

On if he dated Mila when they were doing That 70s Show: People will fill in the blanks however they want.

On if he’s still friendly with Moore’s daughters: There are some things that are better left private.

On fame: Someone once told me, ‘If anyone wants to be rich and famous, let them be rich first and see if they still want to be famous.’

Okay, so it’s rumored that Ashton wasn’t well liked on set of Jobs, and after all the publicity and crazy of his relationship with ex Demi Moore, it seems like Ashton’s getting a little dose of how hard messing up in public can be, and how important reputation is in Hollywood.  Guess you have some responsibility when you’re a public figure, eh, Ashton?

Again, I’m NOT in support of his relationship with the adorable Mila Kunis, but this interview does paint him as being a little more thoughtful (and perhaps jaded) than a couple years ago.

THOUGHTS?!

Selena Gomez Isn’t A Kid Anymore!

Selena Gomez is the cover of the July issue of Elle magazine, and she wants to show the world she’s no longer a Disney Channel Darling!

The 19-year-old star dishes about her career, romantic life and the pursuit of an adult perception of herself to Elle.

On growing up poor: “I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we’d run out of gas money.” Still her mother, “saved up to take me to concerts. She took me to museums, aquariums, to teach me about the world, about what’s real.”

On filmmaking: “I get offered the teenybopper movies, and I’ve done that. I haven’t done a mega-hundred-billion-dollar ‘Transformers’ movie, but that’s not what I want to do either.”

On Disney: “Disney is a machine, so people automatically assume that you can’t work for the channel unless you act and sing and dance and sign up for all that. That’s absolutely not true…I always did everything the way I wanted to do it.”

On Bieber Renting Out The Staples Center For A Private Titanic Screening: “If I’ll share anything with you, it’s that he is a hopeless romantic…I had just mentioned it in the car — all I said is that I really want to see “Titanic” again, and then…”

ROMANTIC!  Sounds like Selena’s life is exactly the way she wants it. And yes, we are TOTALLY jealous!

UPDATE: Here’s the Elle cover!

Jessica Simpson’s wedding date revealed!

Jessica Simpson welcomed her daughter Maxwell Drew just a couple weeks ago, and now she’s moved into wedding planning! An insider tells Life & Style that the ‘Fashion Star’ host has set her wedding date: December 12, 2012 – 12/12/12.

The couple, who have been engaged since November 2010, reportedly had been planning to wed in Hawaii on Nov. 11 (11/11/11) but put their plans on hold after Jess discovered she’d become pregnant. With a new date set, the couple are still considering a laid-back beachside ceremony. “Jessica and Eric are eyeing the Hawaiian island of Kauai for the reception for around 60 family and friends,” the insider reveals.

But that’s not all the Fashion Star mentor has in the works. “Jessica is busy planning two very important events — Maxwell’s baptism and her wedding to Eric,” a pal reveals to Life & Style.

She’s hired celebrity party planner Mindy Weiss, who planned Jessica’s Charlotte’s Web–themed baby shower, as well as her 2002 wedding to Nick Lachey, to take care of the details for both extravaganzas!

Jess has pretty much been in hiding since she delivered Maxwell. I’m sure she’s tucked away losing her Weight-Watchers-sponsored weight loss. She gained some 80 pounds, according to sources. Good thing she’s being paid millions by Weight Watchers to help her lose weight! Soon we’re going to be bombarded with images of the “new” Jessica – compared to the larger pregnant Jessica.
