DEMI LOVATO GRACES COSMOPOLITAN FOR LATINAS

Image
From pop music to politics, Latinas have been at the center of a fierce wave of change in 2014. The Summer 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas names the 12 most important headline makers and industry shakers, including the unstoppable Demi Lovato, named Fun, Fearless Latina of the Year! CFL was given back-stage access to Demi’s Neon Lights tour, where she’s currently rocking South American audiences with the summer’s hottest act. She opens up to the magazine about inspiring young girls, her music, and how she keeps her bipolar disorder in check.


On inspiring young girls:

“When I was younger, I needed someone in the spotlight to idolize, who stood for positivity and light and happiness, and wanted to change the world. And because I didn’t have that, I realized, I want to do that, if only for my 12-year-old little sister.”


On keeping her bipolar disorder in check:

“It’s a daily thing. I treat it with medication. Not everybody does that, but for me it works. That’s what works for me …

**** THE GLORIOUS CORNER
Story By: G. H. HARDING ****



HUMAN CANCELLED --- According to Deadline Hollywood, “Fox has opted not to pick up a second season of Almost Human. The futuristic drama starring Karl Urban and Michael Ealy got off to a dodgy start in November but held enough ground to at least earn renewal consideration, often finishing on par with its Monday companion (the already-renewed drama The Following).”


Almost Human‘s chances started to slip once Fox’s drama pilots started to come in. All three of them — Gotham, The Red Band Society and Empire – are considered strong contenders for a series pickup. That didn't bode well for Almost Human.


Almost Human, about a cop (Urban) paired with a lifelike combat-model android (Ealy), comes from the Fringe -team of JJ Abrams and J.H. Wyman and while the first few episodes were a bit hard to process, once it got up and running, it was great. Urban’s sardonic-nature and Ealy’s android-ness worked rather well together. The writing got …

BETTY WHITE TALKS GAY RIGHTS WITH LARRY KING

Image
Age is only a number for the unstoppable Betty White! Using her unrivaled wit, the beloved 92 year old charms Larry King with tales from the Golden Girls era, comments on today’s troubled young stars and even gets a visit from the Kings' pooch, Biscuit.

During her "Larry King Now" interview, the "Hot in Cleveland" star expressed her opinions on gay rights:

“I don’t care whom you sleep with. It’s what kind of a human being are you [that's what matters to me]. I don’t understand [why people are anti-gay]. It’s such a personal private business and it’s none of mine.”

"You're so right," Larry King said in reply.

Betty White is the latest celebrity to speak out on the issue.

She also shared that she is infuriated by "ungrateful" young stars like Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber, and Chris Brown because of their selfish actions.

“I get furious, if you must know," she explained to Larry King. "Do you know the millions of people o…

SUPERMODEL CHRISSY TEIGEN GRACES COSMOPOLITAN

Model Chrissy Teigen looks fun and fearless on the cover of June Cosmopolitan, on newsstands nationwide May 6th. She wows on not one but three covers this month, and takes it all off in her spread, dipping her famous curves in a soapy bathtub as she comes clean about her romance with hubby John Legend. In her interview, she opens up about their first night together, the craziest place they’ve ever had sex, and taking her career to the next level.



On hooking up with John Legend on the set of his hit 2009 single “Stereo,” and building their relationship:


“I’m not going to lie. We hooked up. [When he went on tour] I left him be himself for a while. The worst thing you can do is try to lock someone like that down early on, then have them think, There’s so much more out there. I played it cool for a long time. Never once did I ask, ‘What are we?’ Marriage was never my goal, because I’ve never been very traditional. I was just happy to be with him.”


On PDA with her husband:


“We’re by no mean…

DOMINIQUE ANSEL BAKERY VISITS WENDY WILLIAMS

Dominique Ansel On Wendy Williams


French chef, Dominique Ansel, visited The Wendy Williams Show to exclusively reveal the latest creation to emerge from his New York-based bakery today. The 'Waffogato' is an elaborate waffle-shaped ice cream concoction, over which coffee with maple syrup is poured to release tapioca pearls as it melts together.

Dominique described his creation, "There is Belgian waffles inside, tapioca pearls and sea salt. And then we pour maple syrup and coffee on top. As you pour the hot liquid, you will see the tapioca pearls coming out. And this we will be serving at the bakery for the next week and we will serve it tonight for Taste of the Nation."

Opened in 2011, Dominique Ansel Bakery has since produced the Cronut, named by Time Magazine as one of the 25 best inventions of 2013; the Cookie Shot, which launched at SXSW and is only available daily after 3pm; and it's signature DKA, a twist on a traditional Breton pastry.

REMARKABLE TALENTS IDINA MENZEL & ANTHONY RAPP

**** THE GLORIOUS CORNER
Story By: G.H. Harding ****



IF/THEN – There’s certainly no question at all that Idina Menzel and Anthony Rapp are huge, huge talents. Menzel, for her exemplary work in Wicked; on the TV show Glee and her song “Let It Go” from Disney’s biggest animated movie of all time, Frozen; Rapp, for his outstanding work in Rent; which has really got to be in my Top 2 Best Plays of all time. That said, I walked into Menzel’s headlining stint in the current Broadway-paly If/Then, really wanting it to blow me away and it did … sort of.


The play, loosely based in the 1998 movie Sliding Doors starring Gywneth Paltrow and John Hannah, is about a girl (Elizabeth) Menzel, who reflects on how her life would have gone if she had made other choices than she has. At first it’s a bit dodgy figuring out which Elizabeth is doing which thing; whether it’s meeting ex-soldier Josh (a strong James Snyder); or, whether she’ll be co-habiting with best friend Lucas (Rapp). There’s no question tha…
