Taylor Swift has been named the highest earning musician – raking in a whopping million dollars per day! Get it girl!
Reportedly, Tay-Tay has brought in a total of $205 million since January 2015… Holy monkey, that’s insane.
She told the magazine with regard to her popularity, “Things are good right now but I’m never going to be stupid, foolish or ignorant enough to think I have control over the public.”
Swift also talked about her squad. She said, “My friendship group is one of my favorite things about my life right now. Our friends really have each others’ back. It’s the first time in my life that I’ve had anything strong like that in the friendship department.”
If you’re curious how to become part of her inner circle, she gave a tidbit on that as well. She added, “A lot of the time I’ll reach out to people to tell them they’re great, and a friendship will come out of them. Ella and I – Lorde – we met on our own because her album came out and I sent her flowers and told her it was great and now she’s one of my best friends.”

Angelina Jolie is featured on the cover of the latest issue of “Vogue” magazine and inside she talks about how she and husband Brad Pitt have their issues.
She and Pitt filmed their new movie “By The Sea” following their August 2014 wedding and despite it being about a couple whose marriage is on the rocks, she says that it’s not about her and her husband. She revealed, “It’s not autobiographical. Brad and I have our issues. But if the characters were even remotely close to our problems we couldn’t have made the film. As artists we wanted something that took us out of our comfort zones just being raw actors. It’s not the safest idea. But life is short.”
Angelina also talked about menopause and how she is excited to turn fifty-years-old and having a mastectomy. She said, “I wish my mom had been able to make those choices. They are not easy surgeries. The ovaries are an easy surgery, but the hormone changes – interesting. We just joke that I had my Monday edit. Tuesday surgery. Wednesday go into menopause. Thursday come back to edit, a little funky with my steps.”
Her mother Marcheline Bertrand passed away in 2007 after battling breast and ovarian cancer for almost eight years. She said, “I feel grounded as a woman. I know others do too. Both of the women in my family, my mother and my grandmother started dying in their ’40s. I’m 40. I can’t wait to hit 50 and know I made it.”

Lupita Nyong’o is the October Vogue cover girl, and man does she look amazing in all these GORGEOUS dresses. The star knows how to wear couture but more than that- she doesn’t let the couture wear her. Here are some snaps from the shoot and some snippets from her interview:
On fashion in Kenya: “salons were a big feature in my life. We would go every two weeks to get our hair braided, washed, or treated. That’s where I read American, British, and a few African magazines.Then I would design my own clothes. In Kenya it’s much cheaper to get clothes made than to buy them. We would have everything run up by a tailor, or my aunt Kitty, who is very creative, would sew things for me.”
On her father’s political career/tragedy: “I was definitely exposed to some extreme situations. Tragedy is something that I have known and that I have tried to accept as part of life. But I don’t dwell on it. . . . OK! I need to powder my nose!”
On winning her Oscar: “In Africa there is a nationalism that comes with things like winning an Oscar. It’s traditional to be welcomed and celebrated. Praise songs, which are the highest honor in Kenya, were sung for me, and they included lines from my Oscar speech.”

Sienna Miller is confirming what we all knew: being an actress and a mom is TOUGH AS HELLLL.
Clearly, last year has been one of extremes for the girl- ending her four year-long relationship with boyfriend Tom Sturridge and working hard all year on four different movies. And she lets Vogue know what that shizzz is alll about:
On the year: “Everything’s shifting,” she explained to the mag. “It’s actually been the s–ttiest year, and amazing. It’s always yin and yang. I feel like if you’re excelling in one area, it’s hard to manage both and I do feel like the work is going really well.”
On being a mom: “Obviously when you have a baby it’s the most incredible experience but your life is also catapulted into this chaos and you are exhausted,” Miller told Vogue. “I could literally get on this table and fall asleep.”
On “the curse of motherhood”: “I’d like to be better at managing things; I’d like to be more super — although we’re never going to feel it, even if we are. That’s the curse of motherhood — we just run ourselves ragged. I’m just trying to get a sense of what that guilt is. I sometimes feel like it’s a totally invented emotion. It’s strange to be punishing ourselves this way. It’s not healthy.”
Sounds pretty honest to me. Sienna- hang in there. Maybe 2016 is the year of chill?
