imageDemi Lovato showed us that she is not afraid to bare it all with her new shoot for Complex Magazine. The “Confident” singer appears topless, shocked and sitting on a banana. In the interview with the magazine she discusses her journey from Disney kid to global sensation, but the road hasn’t always been easy for the young starlet.

Demi opened up about why she doesn’t have tons of celebrities in her Instagram photos, her relationship with Selena Gomez, whether she wanted Justin Bieber deported or not, her friendship with Iggy, her support system and of course she mentioned her longtime boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. She also mentioned that if he proposed to her that she would say yes! Check out the full interview here!

While the photos of Demi look stunning she really decided to open up about her body image issues in her latest shoot. Demi is photographed completely nude, with no makeup and no retouching for “Vanity Fair” magazine. The 23-year-old singer explains in an interview that this is her way of showing she is confident because a few years ago she wouldn’t have had the courage to do so.

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past day, it’s that life is too short. I’m about to launch an album that finally represents who I truly am. How do I embrace this new chapter in my life? How do I really walk the walk? What does it mean to be confident? It means letting go, being authentic, saying I don’t give a fuck and this is who I am. I want to show the side of me that’s real, that’s liberated, that’s free. What if we do a photo shoot where it’s totally raw? Super-sexy, but no makeup, no fancy lighting, no retouching, and no clothing. Let’s do it here, let’s do it now,” Demi said to Vanity Fair photographer Patrick Ecclesine.

Sunday Paper June 7, 2015

Check out this week’s top stories in pop-culture and entertainement news in this week’s edition of your Sunday Paper!

The story that has had the media and tabloids buzzing this week was none other than the revealing of the new “Vanity Fair” cover. “Vanity Fair” revealed the upcoming issue’s cover featuring former olympian Bruce Jenner who is now going by Caitlyn Jenner after her transition. A couple of week’s back Bruce Jenner revealed in an interview with Diane Sawyer that “for all intents and purposes I am now a woman.” He went on to say that when the cover of Vanity Fair is revealed “I am free.”

The cover featured Caitlyn with ivory lingerie, wind-blown hair, a sassy red lip stain and the caption “Call Me Caitlyn.” Tons of celebrities, LGBT members and allies showed their support on Twitter with the hashtags #IamCaitlyn, #CallMeCaitlyn and #CaitlynJenner.

With all the positivity unfortunately came negativity and Chris Brown and Drake Bell were of the two that had backlash from transgender-supporters. Chris Brown known for being outspoken re-posted one of Snoop Dogg’s Instagram pictures calling Caitlyn a “science project.” Kylie Jenner, Caitlyn’s youngest daughter, who is close to Brown immediately fired back commenting on the post, “Not very nice to say about your friends dad.” She then took to twitter to tweet, “State what you want about the world without bashing others. Leave a positive impact.”

Drake Bell from the Nickelodeon television show “Drake & Josh” also received backlash after refusing to recognize Caitlyn in a tweet. He has since apologized for his tweet for being “thoughtless” and “insensitive”.

Overall there has been so much support and visibility in the trans-community. Caitlyn Jenner is finally living her truth and inspiring lots of others to do the same. Go Caitlyn!

Last weeks post covered the Duggar family scandal which involved their oldest son Josh Duggar who molested five underage girls when he was a teenager, four of whom are his sisters. The Duggar parents Jim Bob and Michelle had an exclusive interview with Fox New’s Megyn Kelly on her show “The Kelly File” that aired last Wednesday.

Jim Bob and Michelle where both teary-eyed and looked to each other throughout the interview to find support. Both parents were adamant about protecting their son’s reputation and minimizing his behavior. They said they did the best they could do in their circumstances, sought out counseling for Josh and had him speak to authorities about he had done.

“He was still a kid. He was still a juvenile. He wasn’t an adult. This was not rape or anything like that. This was touching someone over their clothes.” Jim Bob said in the interview.

The Duggars decided to go forth with the television show despite the molestation because they did not see a reason not to.

“When they asked us to do that reality TV show, all of this had been taken care of five years before, and we had a clean bill of health from the state,” Jim Bob said.

Jim Bob went on to say they were fine before the show and would be fine without it. Lots of big name advertisers have already started pulling their ads from the show or at least started taking steps toward doing so.

The family and TLC network have both been receiving backlash from the media and viewers to cancel the show or lend their two cents in the matter. Extra’s very own Mario Lopez took to Twitter to pay his as well.

The “Saved by the Bell” star tweeted back to back tweets calling out the Duggars for their Fox News interview. The tweets have both received over 3,000 retweets and 5,000 favorites. I guess he said what we were all thinking.

Host Billy Eichner also tweeted support to Caitlyn, but added a twist of humor to it. He took this opportunity to remind us that during a concert, Enrique Iglesias was severely injured by a drone. His hand got caught in the propeller and he required immediate medical attention. The concert was paused for about a half hour, but after getting patched up, Enrique came right back out and finished performing. Now that’s an artist!

Welcome home, Caitlyn Jenner

The moment we have all been waiting for, well, truthfully – the moment Bruce Jenner has been waiting for has FINALLY arrived. Caitlyn, formerly, Bruce Jenner has made her first official appearance as a woman.

Caitlyn’s transformation journey has been published in Vanity Fair (on shelves tomorrow, Tuesday, June 2nd), and we are here to give you a wrap up of the 22-page feature story.

While she has just begun to reveal her story, it is clear that this has been a lifelong journey of secrets, emptiness, and now bravery and triumph.  During a comparison between winning an Olympic Gold medal to her first photo shoot as a woman, Jenner admitted to Buzz Bissinger (author of VF article) that this moment was much better. “This shoot was about my life and who I am as a person.”

Although Jenner has been waiting for this moment for several years, she suffered panic attacks immediately after her facial feminization surgery (she has not had genital surgery). Jenner had regretful thoughts, “what did I just do to myself,” – but those feelings quickly went away once she realized she had become the person she has always wanted to be. Jenner tells Bissinger that if she had never revealed her true self, she would have lied on her deathbed thinking, ‘you just blew your whole life.’

Jenner reflects on memories of wearing a bra and pantyhose underneath her suit during public speaking events, thinking to herself, ‘they know nothing about me.’ She explains her time as Bruce as a life filled with lies – lying from sun up until sun down, but now, Caitlyn doesn’t have any lies.

Caitlyn talks about her family and the mistakes she made as Bruce saying, “I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that.”

Caitlyn’s family showed nothing but love and support today after the release of the Vanity Fair cover.

Here are some of their social media posts:

Let us all take Caitlyn’s bravery as a message to always stay true to ourselves, no matter how scary that may be.

“Soon as the Vanity Fair comes out, I’m free.”

Yes, you are Caitlyn and welcome home.
