Kim Kardashian has opened up about her previous 'obsession' with fame in the September issue of Vogue Australia, interviewed by none other than her husband; Kanye West.

Dressed by Thierry Mugler, Kim looks beyond breathtaking in the latest Vogue cover, but fans were surprised at her honesty in conversation with Kanye;

"I do agree that fame can be addictive and it took me a long time to recognise how lost you can become when you put too much focus on it. Before, I was obsessed with fame, like, embarrassingly obsessed, but my focus has shifted."

Vogue Arabia Editor-in-Chief Manuel Arnaut says that the shoot and interview both "reveal a side to Kim Kardashian that many have never seen before":

“Her interview with Kanye West is both real and raw, as she talks personally about her career and family life. It was inspiring to assemble this unique level of talent," he adds.

Her cover was shot in the Los Angeles desert by photographer Txema Yeste, and her one-on-one interview with her Grammy award-winning husband dispels many of the misconceptions she has faced.

The reality star was previously underestimated, but is currently studying law and successfully working US government on criminal justice issues;

“There is a misconception that I don’t actually have to study and that I’ve bought my way into getting a law degree – that’s absolutely not true… Being underestimated and over-delivering is my vibe.”

On lessons she wishes to share with her fans; “I try to be a good person and to take my mistakes and make them into a better experience — to learn and grow from them and move on.”

When speaking about her first real date with Kanye, she says; “I was like, ‘Damn, why did I waste so much time and energy? Why didn’t I do this sooner?"

She also gets candid about the idea of herself as an inspiration, and the pressure she's under to be a decent role model to young people as one of the most followed people on social media;

“I never felt the responsibility of being a role model until I had kids,” she said. "Even in my darkest of times I don’t regret putting myself out there for the world to see.

"People have shared with me over the years how much it has helped them to feel less alone when dealing with their own adversity. I love having a voice and I appreciate the platform that I have been given, even though I do wish I could have more privacy at times.”

West later asks Kim to choose her favourite sister, controversially: “It changes, just like friends or relationships go in and out. I think this year has been a really strong Kim and Khloé year,” she reveals.

“I’m obviously so close with Kendall and Kylie too but I’ve spent so much more time on this earth with Kourtney and Khloé – 16 and 17 years longer with them. We have more history, have been through so much together, and we have more friends in common. Kourtney and I will always be really close, but this year, Khloé and I really bonded.”

This might have been as a result of Khloé's drama with baby daddy and cheating ex Tristan Thompson, who kissed Kylie Jenner's long-time 21-year-old best friend Jordyn Woods.

Jameela Jamil has stepped in to defend Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle against the cruel treatment by the British press regarding her usage of private planes to go on holiday last week.

Celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Pink, Elton John, and Meghan's best friend, Jessica Mulroney, have all blasted the media for degrading the Duchess consistently and unfairly.

The Good Place actress and activist Jameela Jamil has now had her say, pointing out that the reason why the royals take private planes is because of their assassination risk.

"Ugh. Dear England and English press, just say you hate her because she’s black, and him for marrying a black woman and be done with it God dammit," she wrote on Twitter.

"Your bullying is so embarrassing and obvious. You’ve all lost your marbles. It’s 2019. Grow up.

"I will never forget reading an English sh*t rag, writing the words, “Meghan’s exotic DNA shall certainly THICKEN the royal blue blood line…” (bangs head against table and throws up in own mouth.)" Jamil added.

"I too used to not understand that in this day and age there’s still such a distinct hatred/disrespect towards black women in the world, because I grew up sheltered and without personally feeling any negative way towards any race. But we have to open our eyes. It so prevalent," she tweeted.

"ALSO, it’s not safe for us to be on the same planes as royals or presidents you absolute muppets. They are prime targets for kidnap and sometimes assassination. It’s in the interest of us civilians to not be endangered by proximity to people in such powerful positions."

The iWeigh founder and activist was featured as part of Meghan Markle's Vogue UK September issue, entitled 'Faces for Change'.

Hopefully the media and general public realise the inequality which Prince Harry's wife faces as a result of her race, and checks their privilege.

Fair play to Jameela for saying it like it is.

Ariana Grande has had a whirlwind few years, and is currently in the midst of her most successful career chapter to date following massive trauma in her personal life.

The 26-year-old has opened up to Vogue magazine about her five-month relationship with SNL comic Pete Davidson and how she dealt with the grief of losing ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

The rapper died of an overdose in September 2018, and the Thank U, Next singer later began dating Davidson. Drama ensued after the couple got engaged after just one month of dating, and later broke up.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Vogue (@voguemagazine) on

Grande described her romance with the comedian as “insane” and “highly unrealistic”, but praised him as “an amazing distraction” in the wake of her breakup with Miller.

“It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic,” she said, adding: “I loved him, and I didn’t know him. I’m like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist. I still don’t trust myself with the life stuff.”

The young musician described the the loss of Miller as “pretty all-consuming”.

“By no means was what we had perfect,” she said of their two-year-long relationship, “but, like, f***. He was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Mac Miller (@macmillerdivine) on

She added; "I was the glue for such a long time, and I found myself becoming… less and less sticky. The pieces just started to float away.”

Grande recently said her relationship with Miller was “toxic” after a fan harshly criticised her for “dumping him for another dude”.

“How absurd that you minimise female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them,” she replied on Twitter, claiming the song Cinderella on his last album was about her.

“I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be,” Grande continued, emphasising that she had “tried to support his sobriety” for many years.

Grande told Vogue: “People don’t see any of the real stuff that happens, so they are loud about what they think happened. They didn’t see the years of work and fighting and trying, or the love and exhaustion.”

The singer said that her tweet “came from a place of complete defeat”; “You have no idea so you’re not allowed to pull that card, because you don’t f***ing know,” she continued. “That’s where that came from.”

Ariana also explained that she doesn't remember the months after Miller's death "because I was so drunk" and "sad", understandably.

"You have no idea how many times I warned him that that would happen and fought that fight, for how many years of our friendship, of our relationship."

For Ariana, Thank U, Next was also a time of "self-realisation" about being "boo'd up my entire adult life": "It was this scary moment of 'Wow, you have to face all this stuff now. No more distractions."

Appearing in the coveted Vogue magazine is one of the most lucrative gigs in the media and fashion business, and it looks like Meghan Markle will be involved in the September issue.

The Duchess of Sussex will reportedly invite photographers into her Frogmore Cottage home for a photoshoot, but without Prince Harry and her newborn baby Archie.

According to the Sun, the new mum will be guest editing for the issue and will write about important topics which she holds dear to her. She will not appear on the cover, however.

The royal, philanthropist and global style icon will be joining British editor-in-chief Edward Enninful to create the most important issue of the entire year.

Enninful has been forward in his intentions to diversify the magazine, which is perhaps why Meghan arranged the collaboration directly with him rather than US Vogue boss Anna Wintour.

The British editor has been a long-standing fan of the Duchess. In an interview with The Evening Standard, he previously expressed his hope of her appearance in the magazine: 

"Meghan is an example of how far we've all come. I'd love for her to be on the cover of Vogue."

An insider Vogue source told the Sun : "Meghan is going to write a piece on causes such as female empowerment and women’s education.

"Edward has been courting her since day one. Anna is massively miffed that she’s missed out. This is nothing to do with Archie, or family, or home life. It’s purely on women’s empowerment."

Meghan's editorial debut will also include an opinion piece and a list of female 'change-makers', who will pen personal essays within the iconic pages also.

The former actress appeared on Vanity Fair's infamous cover after her relationship with now-husband Prince Harry became known.

The Duchess of Cambridge previously appeared on the cover of Vogue UK for it's 100th edition, in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery.

We'll have to wait and see if Meghan's collaboration will resemble Kate Middleton's in any way. The new mum was recently named one of Vogue's 25 Most Influential Women of 2019.

Multiple sources are reporting that Kendall Jenner and her 22-year-old basketball player boyfriend have called it quits on their relationship.

Page Six are claiming that the pair, who haven't been spotted together since March, have called time on their romance, while People allege that the couple are 'on a break',

The news comes only days after Kendall's Vogue Australia interview was released, where she hinted that marriage could be on the cards in the future. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by ben&kendall (@simmon.jenner) on

The 23-year-old model spoke about why she likes to keep her relationship private after seeing the intense level of scrutiny her siblings were subjected to.

Kim, Kylie, Khloe and Kourtney's love lives are constantly in the spotlight, with ruthless vitriol consistently being thrown their way for their choices. 

“I got a glimpse of how my sisters dealt with the attention and it’s cool to learn from that," she started. "For me, a lot of things are very special and very sacred, like my friends and relationships, and I personally think that bringing things into the public makes everything so much messier."

Kendall said in her Vogue cover story when asked about marriage, “Maybe. Definitely not now, but maybe one day." It's looking like Ben Simmons won't be there that day after all…

People have claimed that the couple simply fell out of love,according to their source; "They’re on a break. The relationship ran its course. She’s spending time with her friends and back to being in fun mode."

Page Six reported that NBA player Simmons went out partying with his friends and there was "buzz among Ben’s entourage that he and Jenner called it quits last week." They were last seen together at a suburban New Jersey mall in March.

We're guessing Kendall wants to keep the break-up as private as she can.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kendall Jenner News (@kendaljenneeeer) on

She spoke about how, at 23-years-old, it's best to keep things on the down low unless you're certain of the relationship's future.

"A relationship is only meant to be between two people, and the second you make it the world’s business is when it starts messing with the two people mentally. Like once everyone is let in, you’re letting all these opinions into your relationships, and I don’t think that’s fair.”

The pair still follow each other on social media, so perhaps it was amicable?

According to The Sun (take it with a pinch of salt), Victoria's Secret model Irina Shayk unfollowed Lady Gaga before her intimate performance with Bradley Cooper at the Oscars.

The performance of Shallow, which picked up the Best Original Song at the Academy Awards from their film A Star Is Born, has attracted a huge amount of attention from fans claiming the pair are secretly in love.

Some of us think it's just good acting, and a healthy co-star friendship, but others claim a LOT more than that is happening, especially since Lady Gaga is newly single. 

Lady Gaga broke off her engagement to talent manager Christian Carino, despite their awards season PDA, and now more fans are assuming that Gaga and Cooper are in luuuuuurve.

Now Irina Shayk has apparently unfollowed the Enigma singer and actress on Instagram and Twitter as rumours about her beau of four years and Gaga were heating up. 

Their Oscars show was pronounced as "steamy" online by fans, and the 33-year-old model who has a one-year-old daughter Lea with Bradley, stopped following Lady Gaga weeks before the display.

The Sun claims that Irina hit the unfollow button on or before January 30 after getting tired of the romance rumours and "chemistry" claims about her partner with Gaga.

She has been in a relationship with Bradley since 2015, and most likely is getting rather tired of the speculation online. We don't blame her tbh…

She hugged Cooper and Gaga following their performance, and seemed pretty pally with the iconic pop star, so who knows what's true and what's entirely fabricated?

In an Instagram post commenting on the much-discussed duet, Gaga described her co-star  Bradley as a “true friend.” Key word here: FRIEND.

He said: "I didn't really have a chance to find who I was apart from what I did."

The pair tied the knot last September, with people close to them saying that Justin is very happily married: "It's just something else that he struggles with mentally."

"He has good help around him and is receiving some treatment. He seems confident he will feel better soon."

Apparently celibacy was the secret to Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber's love life.

The American couple have given their first interview together on their relationship to Vogue, opening up about how they each saved themselves during their 12-week-courtship until they tied the knot last year.

Bieber got candid about his "legitimate problem with sex", and how his religious and spiritual beliefs led him to abstain in order to dedicate himself to God.

“I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that," he said.

He elaborated on his feeling that God brought Hailey to him as a result of this dedication;

“I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul. And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behaviour.”

The couple met on the Today Show back in 2009 but only developed their friendship after meeting again at a Hillsong church service in Manhattan a few years later. Hillsong is a renowned church based in America which numerous celebrities follow.

Baldwin confessed that she had never been a “crazed” Belieber, but said:

“One day Justin walked into Hillsong and was like, ‘Hey, you got older.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, what’s up?’ Over time he became my best guy friend. I was running around with him as his homie, but we weren’t hanging out romantically.”

Baldwin said the pair went through a “very dramatic excommunication” after Bieber's personal life took a downward spiral, which led him to ignore her and shut Hailey out of his life.

“When I saw her last June, I just forgot how much I loved her and how much I missed her and how much of a positive impact she made on my life,” he said. “I was like, Holy cow, this is what I’ve been looking for.”

Baldwin's uncle, Alec Baldwin, let the cat out of the bag that the famous couple had wed in September 2018 after telling Access: “They just went off and got married and I don't know what the deal is.

Fashion brand Gucci has been forced to apologise after releasing a balaclava-style jumper which resembles 'blackface', according to the Evening Standard.

The black piece of attire was being sold as part of their Fall/Winter 2018 campaign, and covers the lower half of the face and red mouth cut-out.

The jumper has now been removed from sale, and the brand has issued an apology after facing massive social media backlash for the offensive material.

Their statement was released by a spokesman for the luxury fashion house, saying that they consider diversity a 'fundamental value' of their company and that the incident would be adapted into a 'powerful learning movement';

"Gucci deeply apologises for the offence caused by the wool balaclava jumper. We can confirm that the item has been immediately removed from our online store and all physical stores."

“We consider diversity to be a fundamental value to be fully upheld, respected, and at the forefront of every decision we make. We are fully committed to increasing diversity throughout our organisation and turning this incident into a powerful learning moment for the Gucci team and beyond," it concluded.

The description for Gucci's item originally read; 

“Inspired by vintage ski masks, multi-coloured knitted balaclavas walked the runway, adding a mysterious feel to this collection. This knit top combines the accessory with the ready-to-wear collection.”

Social media users managed to get screenshots of the $890 jumper before it was pulled, ironically noting that it was Black History Month.

One Twitter user wrote; “Haute Couture Blackface for the millennials?”

Gucci's problems with fashion mishaps is the latest incident in a number of racially-charged mistakes by designer fashion brands. 

Prada removed items last month over products which were also concerning for the public.

It looks like we're FINALLY getting some updates on Bad Gal Riri's forthcoming album, after R&B legend The Dream revealed some details in an all-encompassing interview.

It's been almost three years since her last work, 2016's ANTI, and since then Rihanna has taken on world domination through fashion and cosmetics.

Savage x Fenty and Fenty Beauty have been hugely successful, and we thank her for those gems, but now we need the TUNES to match, mmkay?

Fans have been waiting a long time to hear more music from the iconic singer, and her newest record is "about done", according to The Dream. The singer has worked closely with Rihanna since 2007.

When asked about the versatile artists' newest work, he said; "She’s cooking, she’s about done. She’s about done. Super close." TAKE IT OUT OF THE OVEN.

He flat out refused to give any more details about the Disturbia hitmaker's album, but also teased that Beyoncé is "doing something" in the studio. Praise the Lawd, the Queens are returning to their thrones.

Speaking in an interview with Ebro Darden, he said: “I actually haven’t talked to her about it – I’ve talked to the team about it because it’s kind of just being coordinated. But she’s doing something."

RiRi recently joked to her fans that her internet connection was too poor to answer their questions about her album, though many are saying her ninth studio album is close to being finished.

The singer posted a video to her Instagram Stories which featured her waving a wad of cash, smiling and blowing a kiss to the camera, with the caption, '"Fans: "Where the album?" Me: sorry my connection poor."

Kuk Harrell, who worked with the star on ANTI, and co-wrote songs such as Umbrella and Only Girl (In the World), recently responded to one of the singer’s fans who asked about the album, saying; 

"R9 is great. R9 is amazing. It’s incredible, And that’s all I’m going to say." Obviously it's amazing, but we need it NOW.

There have been zero announcements yet on a release date, but we'll be patient for Bad Gal RiRi.

The Duchess of Sussex is set to follow in the footsteps of Princess Diana and The Duchess of Cambridge by featuring on the cover of one of the most famous magazines.

Rumour has it British Vogue are eager for the mum-to-be to feature on the cover of their magazine and we are hoping the former Suits star says yes to their proposal.

Speaking of their desire to work with Meghan, Editor in Chief Edward Enninful told Express that the younger royals are paving the way for new traditions.

He gushed about how Meghan has breathed new life into the Royal Family: “I am so into the young royals. Meghan is an example of how far we’ve all come.”

Meghan won’t be the first royal to feature on the cover of the magazine. The late Princess Diana featured on the cover of the publication numerous times in 1981, 1991, 1994 and 1997.

The Duchess of Cambridge graced the cover of the 100th-anniversary issue of British Vogue so we are sure Meghan won’t pass up this opportunity.

Enniful even teased a joint cover with both Meghan and Kate. “They are different, it’s all fun and games. I’d love them both to be on the cover of Vogue,” he said.

The most recent royals to feature in the publication were Princess Eugenie and her sister Princess Beatrice. The sisters featured in the magazine last year so there’s no doubt the Royals are huge fans of British Vogue.
