Kim Kardashian Would Like To Be Called A Feminist.

Though you can practically see her areola in this cover photo, Kim Kardashian wants you to know that she thinks she’s much smarter than she’s portrayed…

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the reality star shares 11 revelations that shed light on lots of points of interest- including where she stands on feminism, reality, her brother Rob Kardashian and more!  Here’s a selection of revelations from the interview:

Did you know Kim K dated Michael Jackson’s nephew, TJ in high school? Yep.  And here’s what her dad had to say about it: At the time, her dad, Robert Kardashian, “explained to me that he’s had a lot of interracial friends, and it might not be the easiest relationship. He said I should prepare myself for people to say things to me. . . . When I was in high school, I’d get magazines and see interracial couples and think, ‘They are so cute.’ I’ve always been attracted to a certain kind of look.”

On discovering Bruce Jenner wearing womens’ clothes:“I was shaking,” Kardashian says. “I didn’t know if I’d just found out his deepest, darkest secret, and he was going to come after me.” Jenner called her on the phone a half hour later, and said, “One day, I’ll talk to you about this. Until then, don’t tell a soul.” Eight years later, he said, “Let’s have that talk.”

On O.J. Simpson moving into Robert Kardashian’s house (while Kim lived there!): “It was surreal, with Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro and all these guys having meetings at my dad’s house,” Kim says. Kris was close with Nicole Brown Simpson and believed that O.J. was guilty, creating a massive amount of tension in the family. “I definitely took my dad’s side,” Kim says. “We just always thought my dad was the smartest person in the world, and he really believed in his friend.” As far as what she believes now, she says, “It’s weird. I just try not to think about it.”

On calling Kim a feminist: “I’ve never really been one on labels, and I don’t like to push my view,” Kardashian says. “If I feel something, it’s how I feel. I never say, ‘I feel this way, so you should feel that way.’ Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but I just am who I am. But, yeah.” She smiles. “I think you would call me a feminist.”

Obviously, Kim has lived through a lot of interesting things, and is smart about her career. But I wonder if she’ll ever go deeper in any of these interviews?

Joe Manganiello Talks Addiction

TRUE BLOOD Season 6 Premiere in LA

Sure, Joe Manganiello seems on top of the world- but it’s been a process to get there.

The Magic Mike XXL star says he still struggles to stay sober all the time. After over 10 years, it’s still a thing- and he respects the process.

“I battled with addiction at a young age and got to the other side of that,” he tells Haute Living for its July/August cover story. “That’s an ongoing battle.”

In late 2013, Joe told HuffPo Live that his life was essentially “ruined” for a period in his 20s when he was homeless, jobless and careless. And he hasn’t had a drink since.

Manganiello even touched on his struggles in a book he published (yeah, I know, he published a book. Who knew?) at the time, called Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You’ve Always Wanted.

“I was writing a one-man show at some point, and maybe I’ll pick up with that or turn that into a book; there are some hurdles that were thrown my way in life that I had to get over [that I want to discuss],” he told Haute Living. “I think there’s a story in there somewhere about trying to find my way through that and making it to where I am today.”

I think so too. And I would DEF buy a ticket to see that one-man show. Wouldn’t you?

Amber Heard Doesn’t Want To Be Defined By Her Sexuality

LACMA 2012 Art + Film Gala in LA

Amber Heard was just out and about in London to do press for Magic Mike XXL…but don’t ask her about her love life!

As one of the few female actresses in Magic Mike XXL, digs that the film flips sexuality on its head.

“It’s a film about men seeking sexual attention,” Heard, 29, told The Times of the stripper flick fronted by Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, and Matt Bomer. “My character’s function has nothing to do with her sexuality.”

Heard has always been attracted to roles that don’t pidgeon hole her for her sexuality or gender.

“I don’t want to have to deny my sexuality in order to be me. But I don’t want to have to be defined by it,” the bisexual actress told The Times (via UK’s Independent). “I’m fundamentally opposed to trying to edit myself to be palatable or popular. I don’t give a f–k. I fight, but I shouldn’t have to.”

Heard is the wife of Johnny Depp, but she also dated photographer Tasya van Ree before marrying. And as far as marriage, she doesn’t want THAT to define her, either:

“I have a fiercely independent spirit,” the actress told Elle. “The thing that really scares me is the potential of losing my freedom. I never want for my life to lose the ability to transverse the world, with freedom and ease. The freedom and ease I have worked so hard to acquire for myself.”

(Via Us Weekly)

I’m always surprised that Heard is so well-spoken, but to be honest, it’s like…don’t marry JOHNNY DEPP if you don’t wanna talk about your love life, right? We alll wanna hear about your weird pirate roleplaying.  ALL OF US.

Reese Witherspoon’s Must-Haves!

Reese Witherspoon Out Shopping In Brentwood

Not only is Reese Witherspoon gloriously well-liked and successful, but she also has tons o’ taste!

In a new interview in the July/August issue of Elle Decor magazine, the actress (and lifestyle guru) opens up about her favorite things, from cities to preferred beverages. I know this doesn’t exactly count as news, but who cares?! It’s Reese we’re talking about here!  Here’s a sneak peek of what the actress can’t get enough of!

Nashville: “The city has a sense of ease,” Witherspoon says. “It’s where I grew up, so I am blessed.” This fall, Witherspoon plants to open the first Draper James boutique in her home town. “We are aiming for that mix of traditional and contemporary that says, ‘I love where I am from, but I have also traveled the world,’” she tells Elle Decor. (Her online store, launched in May, is already up and running.)

Cafe Du Monde Coffee: “I like to prepare it in a French press,” Witherspoon says though we’re sure she must have also tasted some of the chicory-flavored coffee at the original, iconic Café du Monde while in New Orleans filming Hot Pursuit.

Magnolia Trees in Bloom:Only in the South,” she clarifies. “Everywhere else they look too skinny.”

Check out more of her faves HERE.  Also, what do you think of her must-haves?
