Actress/singer Demi Lovato recently declared she hates most of those gossip sites out there that always post the most unflattering pictures of her persona. I totally understand Demi. Sometimes a girl wakes up and does not like what she sees in the mirror… or all over gossip sites!
Demi tweeted, “I love how some gossip sites deliberately post pictures with disgusting angles of me. Hahaha thanks guys… Thaaanks. Ps. I hate you.”
There is no reason for Demi to feel insecure about herself and her body image. The 18 year-old is super talented and absolutely gorgeous. No kidding. I have yet to find an unflattering photograph of Demi because I always think she looks fantastic.
Demi knows the price she has to pay for being famous. Fame is definitely hard to handle, especially when your whole life is being scrutinized and there’s a lot of people, who do not really know you, judging you and fabricating stories.
Demi said, “I love my job, but the negative stuff in the media can bother me. There have even been times when my parents have been worried about it. One time they woke me up in the middle of the night after hearing a rumor that wasn’t even close to true. It can overwhelming and I kinda feel like, ‘What am I doing this for?’ I spend all this time working so hard just for people to bad mouth me. But then I’ll watch a few fan videos that people have taken the time out of their day to make, and that’s what makes it worthwhile.”
At the end of the day Demi must realize it is all worth it because of her family, loyal friends and incredible fans. GossipTeen HEARTS Demi!!

In July, Taylor Swift will hit the store shelves, in comic book form. The country music superstar is set to become illustrated by Bluewater Productions as part of the ‘Fame’ series. The biographical comics have included Kristen Stewart and Lady Gaga. From Bluewater:
SUPERSTAR TAYLOR SWIFT MAKES THE PAGES OF HER OWN COMIC BOOK IN JULY.
To say that Taylor Swift is riding a winning streak is an understatement. The singer/songwriter was named Billboard Magazine’s Artist of the Year in 2009. She began her 2010 by winning the Grammy for Album of the Year for her sophomore album, Fearless. That album has spent more time at number-one on the Billboard charts than has any other album since 2000.
And now, the talented musician is slated to become a comic-book hero. Swift will become the latest celebrity immortalized in sequential form when her biography comic, Fame: Taylor Swift hits comic shops this July.
The comic, by Bluewater Productions, will trace Swift’s rise from young singer/songwriter to mega-selling recording artist. It also chronicles her unwavering commitment to pushing herself. After all, this is a performer who began writing songs at the age of 10. Just one year later, she traveled to Nashville, determined to break into the country music scene.
Swift distributed her demo tape to every label in town, and received no offers. Of course, all that would change quickly. In 2006, she debuted with her self-titled album, and Swift’s life has never been the same.
CW Cooke and PR McCormack teamed up to write the Swift bio comic, while artist Erick Adrian Marquez handled the pencils. The comic features two covers, one by Marquez and a second by JuanMar Studios. This 32-page comic will retail for $3.99.
“Learning about Taylor’s life from the beginning until now made her feel like more than just the next big thing, it made me see the pop icon as a human being.” Said writer CW Cooke.
Artist Marquez said he was impressed while reading the script to Swift’s comic at the dedication the young artist showed even as a child.
“I really appreciate Swift’s – and her parent’s – drive from such a young age to be successful based on her creativity and talent,” Marquez said.
Fame: Taylor Swift is the latest biography comic from Bluewater Productions. Though the independent comic company publishes comics in every genre – superhero, fantasy, adventure and young adult – it has received significant media attention for its biography comics, which have feature such high-profile subjects as Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Colin Powell. The company’s Fame line will feature Lady GaGa, 50 Cent, Robert Pattinson and soccer star David Beckham.
“We’ve found a niche with our bio comics,” said Darren G. Davis, president and founder of Bluewater Productions. “Our success with this comics shows that there is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes or horror. With our bio comics, we strive to bring these new readers evenhanded, well-researched looks at some of their favorite celebrities.”
Readers can advance order Fame: Taylor Swift at Amazon.com or by calling their local comic shop. They can also order Fame: Lady GaGa and Fame: Robert Pattinson, both due out in May, in the same way.

The cover of the upcoming 40th anniversary edition of Interview Magazine belongs to Kristen Stewart. The Twilight Saga actress has a great rapport with actor Dennis Hopper, who interviews her for the issue. Here is an excerpt about the pressure she’s under to do well in the sequel – ‘New Moon:’
HOPPER: Have you been able to enjoy it? Or do you feel more pressure doing these sequels?
STEWART: I do feel more of a pressurized strain than what is typical for me. Usually, what drives you is your own personal responsibility to the script and the character and the people you are working with. But in this case, I have a responsibility not only to that but to everyone who has personal involvement in the books—and now that spans the world. It’s an insane concept. There are certain things in Twilight . . . As much as I’m proud of that movie and I do like it, I feel like maybe I brought too much of myself to the character. I feel like I really know Bella now. But most readers feel like they know Bella because it’s a first-person narrative. She’s like a little vessel and everyone experiences the story through her. All of these girls who are fans personally feel like they encapsulate that character. So it’s like, “How the hell am I going to do that for all of them? It’s impossible!” But I’ve decided, if you’re just unabashedly honest all of the time, you have nothing to be ashamed of.
The pressure to live up to the hype and be every fan’s idea of Bella must be intimidating. I am glad to see that she is holding her own and continuing to forge ahead and play the character while trying to put the hype behind her.

In the upcoming issue of Mexican Joy Magazine, actor Robert Pattinson spoke openly about his life since landing the role of Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga and his passion for music and a possible song or two for ‘Eclipse.’ He says he’d like to contribute if time allows. We are all waiting to hear more of his music.

Robert is the perfect example of what the media and fame are capable of doing. It’s a huge stroke of luck, brutal and well-aimed that all of a sudden launches you to the highest peak of worldwide attention, away from good and evil. Something very tempting and rare.
“I wasn’t expecting having this much success. It’s something I still can’t understand. The truth is that in certain occasions I feel dizzy and I still don’t know how to handle so much attention” he expresses, in a very shy voice, almost like a whisper, as if he was telling us a secret. His eyes, so clear they’re almost transparent, stare attentively at us and distract us. It’s not easy resisting his charms! His honesty wins us over though, because far from finding a male diva, we discover, little by little a sensitive man. Warm and charming. We don’t hesitate in sharing with him what we really think: luck, yes, it’s fundamental, but if it doesn’t come hand in hand with talent and magic, everything remains just an anecdote. Robert smiles, he likes the idea. For now he knows that in talent he has exceeded expectations but he worries that he might not be up to the hype and the phenomenon that he’s become. It’s clear to us; charisma is authentic. And after this interview, there’s no doubts about it.
Last time we saw you, Twilight was about to be released and you said you didn’t know what to expect of the movie, and that everybody was looking forward to it. After all the success and box office numbers, how do you feel?
It’s very strange. I can say that everything has happened very fast. Like I’m fast-forwarding through life. Like everything around me is happening at 1000 m/p. The way you fast-forward a movie, just like that. I never thought the movie would cause such a stir. Seeing girls screaming around me is so bizarre. Sometimes I can’t believe is all about me. It’s like I’m living inside a movie, but I wake up and it’s all real. I see that it’s real and how much my life has changed. I still don’t know in which ways my life has changed, I’m still figuring that out. And I don’t know why but I think it’s going to take me a long time to figure it out. I guess it’s normal, don’t you think?

Landing the role of Emmett Cullen in The Twilight Saga movies has been a whirlwind experience for Kellan Lutz. The model-turned-actor has found himself in media frenzy for any Twilight morsel the public can get, from waiting paparzzi to fans who’ve booked rooms at the hotels the young actors stay in. Lutz recently spoke to BlackBook Magazine about how he doesn’t envy costar Robert Pattinson’s level of fame:
But what happens when the fans get to a Robert Pattinson-level where it’s just insane?
Well, it’s crazy because with all this attention, all of us are handling it extremely well. We still have our head on our shoulders and our feet on the ground. Rob’s handling it so well. I can’t fathom being in his shoes. I believe I could handle it, but being cooped up in Vancouver and not being able to leave the hotel room or the apartment without having a driver and having to hide out—especially when he was shooting Remember Me, I talked to him a lot in New York and those fans were just crazy. I can’t imagine trying to act when you have all these people yelling your name and you’re doing an emotional scene.
Even with all that intense scrutiny, Kellan says he loves attending conventions and feels it’s a great way to express his gratitude for the support from fans.
New Moon stunt scenes, being a part of the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street, going to the beach is not his thing – lots of good stuff! Read more of Kellan’s great interview here.

Being the lead in a movie must be a challenge in itself. Add to it a super fanatical fan base that rivals any Star Trek movie and well, you can imagine Kristen Stewart being a bit uncomfortable with the fame and attention she is getting from her performance as Bella Swan in Twilight.
She says, “I’m really not good at it. Some people are great at it. It’s like the other side of the job. I can’t believe I have to do it. It makes it easier because I’m really proud of the movie and I’m a fan of the book as well.”
The 18 year old Stewart is a bit knocked back when she does publicity with co-star Robert Pattinson and she sees the teens go crazy over his every little move. Hopefully she adjusts quickly as New Moon is set to go and the fan base will only grow stronger with every movie.
