The gorgeous Kerry Washington is on the cover of Elle Magazine in the US. Most black women struggle to be on the covers of the high-end glossies and for someone like Kerry it is long overdue. Her hit show The Fixer is back on our screens next Monday on M-Net at 20:30, cannot wait! Here’s what she had to say:
On her success:
“I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now. To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie I don’t get to ask for more.”
On a career she thought she’d have:
“I imagined I’d be a clinical psychologist, with a focus on how performance shapes identity. I’d figure out ways to use role-playing in the healing of people.”
On getting ready for the red carpet:
“I found out I enjoy the process. All these people show up at my house, they all have kits, someone has dresses. And it’s like, let’s have fun. It’s not all about me. We’re able to create stories on the red carpet.”
Jessica Simpson and her baby bump are on the cover of US Elle Magazine and in it she reveals the sex of her baby and it’s a girl! Jessica recently gave birth to baby Maxwell and was surprised at being pregnant so soon again.
Here’s what she had to say about having a girl and the day she found out she was preggers:
“Ah swear, ah will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins! Eric is so athletic. We’re gonna have this ath-a-letic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping.”
“We were goin’ to have an all-day drinking binge. Gonna ride our bikes, hang out…do naughty things. But I started feeling this overwhelming guilt. Why would I feel guilt at the idea of going out and having cocktails with my friends?”
“I’m still standin’. I grew up very strong! You know, my father used to be an adolescent therapist. I remember sitting at his office, watching the girls walkin’ in and out. Kids doin’ coke at 16…heroin. Pregnant at 14. I could see what I didn’t want to be.”
Solange Knowles released an EP (Extended Play, larger than a single shorter than a full album) in November and has released the first single titled Losing You. She shot the music video for the song in Cape Town when she was here last year to shoot the cover for Elle Magazine. I love the video, it’s so retro and Solange’s sound is definitely miles apart from her sister Beyonce’s sound. I think she is finally finding her voice. I love the song and have been playing it over and over in my car. Enjoy!
