Sam Smith is Paranoid and Insecure?

2014 American Music Awards - Arrivals

Sam Smith avoids the more common pratfalls of music success with…keeping busy and staying humble.

GQ interviewed the crooner in their February issue on Smith’s tendency toward being a self-proclaimed “old soul,” his yearning for a lost age of “class and romance,” and his habit of going for “dangerous” men. Here’s a teaser…

On Pop Culture, and How He Feels He’s Different from Other Pop Acts: “I sound awful saying this all the time,” he continued, “because it sounds like I’m slagging off current pop stars, which I’m not, because I love pop culture. But I feel like class and romance have gotten lost. We’ve become a bit lazy, not just in terms of music. … That’s what I’m trying to bring back: that timeless element. I want to create music that people will be listening to in fifty years.”

On Keeping humble: Smith also revealed that his young ambition led him to panic attacks as young as 12 years of age. “I needed to know my life plan,” he told GQ. “There’s always been a hunger in me not necessarily to be successful, but to be an icon…And I’m very paranoid and secure all the time, which really helps me not be an absolute b*tch.”

On Being a diva: “I’d like to be a diva in the sense of having that kind of presence as a singer,” he admitted. “But no. I worry all the time, actually, if I’ve been a bit strict about something, am I being a dickhead? I tell my team all the time: Just tell me if I’m being a dickhead.”

On Dating Dangerous Men: “I felt so much more comfortable wanting what I’m never going to get,” he said. “Like recently, I met two guys. One of them on paper is perfect and ticks all the boxes. The other is dangerous and – well, he ticks boxes actually, too,” he said, before going on to confirm that he chose the “trouble” boyfriend.

Men who are trouble? Yeah, I don’t know what that’s like.  To read the rest of the interview, go HERE!

Drew Barrymore: “I Didn’t Really Have Parents.”

Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style 2012

Bold words, Drew Barrymore! But, you know, we hear ya.

In an interview in More magazine’s February issue, the actress credits her difficult childhood with teaching her to be a better mother. Here are some musings and snippets of the interview, via People Magazine…

On her lack of parenting: “I didn’t really have parents, you know?” Barrymore, 39, says. “And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent. In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it’ll be the biggest asset to my adulthood.”

On working outside of entertainment: “I love the beauty industry because even on a workday I can wake up with my kids, go to work, come home, bedtime — there’s a normal life there,” the founder of Flower cosmetics explains.

On making time to be a good parent: “And it’s exciting when you have to go on a business trip, as opposed to a film where you’re gone for months. I can’t do that right now. As you add more onto your plate, particularly family, things have to fall off, or you won’t be a good parent.”

A s you know, Barrymore is a mom to Olive, 2, and Frankie, 9 months and has made them her priority.  You gotta, when you’re a parent. A GOOD one, anyway…

Kristen Stewart, you sure clean up nice!

When she’s not palling around in her skinny jeans and beanies, Kristen Stewart goes to the Chanel show at Paris Fashion week, and let me tell you, she looks freaking awesome. I love the textured white linen with blue piping on this dress- it’s both sophisticated and avant garde, perfect to preview the Spring/Summer collections of our fave designers and VERY Kristen.

What do you think of KStew’s dress?

Pamela Anderson: “I Never Felt Pretty Enough.”

A Night Of New York Class

If this isn’t proof that we’re all always scrutinizing our looks, I don’t know what is!

Pamela Anderson opened up to Parade Magazine about self-confidence in their latest issue, admitting that while she used to recognize her sex appeal, she never really felt very….pretty.

But now that she’s older and has a new modeling contract, the 47-year-old has learned to embrace her looks.

Pamela explained why it took her so long to get one, saying:

“I’ve just signed with Next Modeling agency for commercials and appearances. That is funny. I’ve never felt pretty enough to be a model. I think I’ve provoked feelings with how I look. But not as a beauty but as a mischievous little rascal! I’ve always been a tomboy. That was never the first thing on my list. My mom always told me beauty comes from within. And I know that’s maybe a cliché, but I do believe that. And I think that’s what lasts forever.”

I know, it’s a cliche, but it’s still important to hear it.  She also talk aging:

“I don’t really feel like I want to chase youth. I want to get old. I want to experience all the seasons of my life. I just don’t want to be afraid of it. And I think in this industry you’re surrounded by a lot of fear of getting older and fear of your looks leaving you. And I thought, ‘Well, I’m lucky then, because I never really felt that great looking.’ I felt like I had fun. I felt like I could be sexy. I could be provocative and I could use my image to get attention for things that I cared about.”

Sometimes Pamela Anderson seems ridiculous, and sometimes she seems super articulate. I call it the Iggy Azalea Effect.  Here, she’s definitely inspiring, and I love how much self-awareness she has.  Get your MODEL on, GIRRRRL.
