Justin Bieber: From the minute I met Justin, I knew this kid possessed a certain confidence that only a star could have. He was born a star. He knew what he wanted to accomplish; all he had to do was get everyone else to believe it. Now, looking back at his incredible run, the reality of who he is and what he’s accomplished far exceeds anybody’s expectations of him. What’s interesting and will keep the world watching is that at the same time he’s having this incredible success, he’s like any other kid living a normal life. It’s like our vocal coach “Mama” Jan Smith tells us: You gave up normality a long time ago for spectacular — not many people can be that, so enjoy it. And you know what? Stay tuned, because his story will get even better.
Blake Lively: Every now and then, an actor or actress manages to somehow channel the vitality of youth — that indefinable, natural, unprocessed glamour full of possibility and filled with anticipation for an endless future. I’ve known Blake the actress, and I’ve known Blake the person, who would surprise many with her down-to-earth coolness. She makes you feel that she, and life, are going to go on forever.
Chris Colfer: Chris has wanted to be an actor, as he says, “since I was an embryo,” which gave him the determination to say, “Yes, I can,” despite the many who had said no. Chris, 20, lives by extreme truth, speaking out against the epidemic of bullying that he, too, faced in high school. The honesty that he infuses into his Glee character, Kurt, leaves you reeling. Our cast is blessed to hear things like “Your character has helped me through this, or helped me do that,” but none more so than Chris. To witness the power he gives to his audience firsthand? It’s wonderful.
Looking lovely in a fitted black dress, actress Blake Lively was all smiles as she attended the premiere of her new movie The Town at Fenway Park in Boston last night (September 14th). Blake joined co-stars for the premiere of the crime movie after promoting it over the weekend at the Toronto Film Festival.
Blake’s hit television series Gossip Girl has also just returned with a brand new season which airs Mondays on the CW.
In the issue, Blake talks about her daring new role in her upcoming movie The Town (out September 17th) which also stars Ben Affleck.
“‘I’m on a very commercial show, so the last thing I want to do is a commercial movie,” Blake says. “‘I wanna take risks, I don’t wanna play it safe. I mean, I could probably make more money if I did more commercial projects. It would be nice to buy an apartment but I’m 22 and I don’t need to yet.”
Blake also talked about her fashion, “I’ve always loved fashion, That’s why I don’t use a stylist. Number one, it’s such an expression of self.”
“I was speaking with Anna Wintour,” Blake continued, “‘and we were just talking about different fashion houses and I said, ‘I love Chanel’, and she said, ‘You should come with me to the show’. I also said I loved Dior. She said ‘OK, well I’ll take you to the Chanel and Dior shows and we’ll meet with Karl and John afterwards’. Insane!”
