35 Revelations from 35 Women: Read New York Magazine‘s Cosby Cover Story

bill-cosby-cover

One by one, they came forward. Now, New York Magazine speaks to thirty-five of the forty-six women who have publicly accused Bill Cosby of rape or sexual assault.

The group counts supermodels Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson, waitresses, Playboy bunnies and journalists as members of its unwelcome sisterhood. Each spoke to the magazine individually, but, as the story notes, “the horror is multiplied by the sheer volume of seeing [these accounts] together, reading them together, considering their shared experience.”

10 Brutally Honest Amy Schumer Quotes, from Glamour and GQ

amy-schumer

Everyone’s obsessed with Amy Schumer. She’s on the cover of both Glamour and GQ this month, in two completely different features: GQ photographed her in a tongue-in-cheek Star Wars shoot that nearly broke the internet, while Glamour asked her sister and writing partner, Kim Schumer, to interview the Trainwreck star. But Amy talked to both titles about sex, self-image and life as a female comedian, with an equal level of candor. Here’s five of our favorite quotes from each interview:

Amy Schumer in GQ

 

On whether it’s hard to be funny: “I think it’s different for everybody. It’s not hard for me to be funny. But it’s really hard. I don’t think a lot of people are funny. I meet a lot of people, and most of them aren’t funny.”

“It’s fun to keep being yourself when the room’s demanding otherwise. I’m putting my dirty laundry out there, and I don’t want to be around people who pretend they don’t have any.”

“I truly feel I’m getting a lot of attention right now and it’s just a ticking time bomb. Like, I wonder what the thing is going to be that will make people want to burn me at the stake.”

On Trainwreck: “I would say 30 percent of the movie is probably just straight from my life, and the rest is some sort of exaggeration.”

“I think people only want women to speak for so long. They build you up, and then they’re just ready to tear you down.”

Amy Schumer in Glamour

 

“I don’t try to be feminist. I just am. It’s innately inside me. I have no interest in trying to be the perfect feminist, but I do believe feminists are in good hands with me.”

On being approached by fans: “It’s overwhelming for somebody to come up and want to just be friends right away. People think comics are always funny and on. And we’re not. We’re pretty quiet.”

“I want to make women laugh. I want to make them feel beautiful in their own skin. I want to empower them to use their voice and not apologize. And I want a jet.”

On dealing with sexist comments: “You’ve got to be vocal. You just let people know. Their ego’s a little bruised. Then they adapt.”

On having everyone’s eyes on her: “Oh my God. I’ll cross my legs.”

Sports Illustrated Celebrates The Women’s World Cup: See All 25 Covers

Sports Illustrated has marked the US Women’s World Cup win with a one-of-a-kind photo shoot. 25 different covers – one for each player, plus their head coach Jill Ellis and a group shot – celebrate the squad’s victory.

“The USWNT has plenty of recognizable, even famous names, but we couldn’t think of a group so thoroughly identified with a team as this one,” said Chris Stone, Sports Illustrated managing editor. “We could go two ways: a team shot, which seemed a little conventional here, or something different and fresh: honoring not just one or two players, but all 23 of them with their own cover.”

 

Next Issue subscribers can check out all 25 covers in their app now, and read up on the team’s track record. If you’re not yet a subscriber, start your free trial now to access the story.

Kim Kardashian on Paris Hilton, Caitlyn Jenner and O.J. Simpson

kim-kardashian-rolling-stone

If you thought you knew everything there was to know about Kim Kardashian, you’d be wrong. The most famous woman in the world is on the cover of Rolling Stone’s July issue, which hits the Next Issue app tomorrow, and she’s revealed where she stands with some of the most notorious people in her life.

Kim on Paris Hilton

They “didn’t really talk” when Kim’s sex tape was leaked. “I probably would have thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, let me give her advice,’ but we had no communication. But our friendship had fizzled before that.”

On Caitlyn Jenner

Twelve years before Caitlyn Jenner’s groundbreaking Vanity Fair cover, a 22-year-old Kim found her stepfather wearing women’s clothing in their garage. She told Rolling Stone: “I was shaking. I didn’t know if I’d just found out his deepest, darkest secret, and he was going to come after me.”

Now-husband Kanye West helped her understand Jenner’s transition, especially around the time of their wedding. “I wasn’t sure if Bruce was going to be comfortable walking me down the aisle,” Kim remembers. “He had just had his trachea shaved, so I knew something was going on…[Kanye] obviously moves to his own drum. He lives his life the way he wants, a really authentic life, and he was like, ‘If you can’t be authentic and you can’t live your life, what do you have?’”

On the person who leaked her sex tape

She knows who it was. But “We’re in major confidentiality, so I can’t talk about it.”

On Kanye

She credits him with her high fashion makeover, calling it “amazing,” but thinks that she would have got there on her own eventually. And she understands his decision not to appear on Keeping Up With the Kardashians: “You can’t expect me to jump up onstage and start singing — it’s not what I do.”

On O.J. Simpson

Kim was living with her father Robert Kardashian in 1994, while he was acting as O.J. Simpson’s attorney. Simpson even moved into the house briefly: “It was surreal, with Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro and all these guys having meetings at my dad’s house,” Kim recalls. “I definitely took my dad’s side,” she says, of the resulting tension between her parents (Kris was a close friend of Nicole Brown Simpson). “We just always thought my dad was the smartest person in the world, and he really believed in his friend.”

On Rob Kardashian 

“It’s not that mysterious, what’s happening with Rob… He has gained weight. He feels uncomfortable being on the show, and that’s OK. Do I think he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games with his friends all day long? Yes.”

Kim on Kim herself

“I believe that I am so much smarter than I’m portrayed.”

Don’t Miss Katy Perry on the Cover of Forbes

Katy Perry Forbes CoverKaty Perry is the highest earning female celebrity, and has the Forbes cover to prove it. The star – who came third in the magazine’s annual Celebrity 100 list, beaten only by Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao – Instagrammed the cover to her 23 million followers, explaining why she wasn’t shy to pose for it:

“Before accepting the offer to be on the cover of Forbes, I was told that a lot of women have previously shied away from doing it. I wondered if it was because they thought socially it would look like they were flaunting or bragging or it wasn’t a humble decision. Ladies, there is a difference between being humble and working hard to see the fruits of your labor blossom, and your dreams realized. Hopefully this cover can be an inspiration to women out there that it’s okay to be proud of hard earned success and that there is no shame in being a boss. Also… don’t think that I didn’t celebrate this moment by going straight to Taco Bell and getting my crunch wrap supreme #ontourbreak”

The cover story looks at how Perry raked in $135 million over the last twelve months: by riding the boom in international concert sales, playing 124 concerts in 27 countries. “I am proud of my position as a boss, as a person that runs my own company,” Perry explained to Forbes.  “I’m an entrepreneur… I don’t want to shy away from it. I actually want to kind of grab it by its balls.”

She narrowly beat out One Direction to be the top-grossing musician, with Taylor Swift the only other recording artist to make it into the top 10 (she tied with Robert Downey Jr. for 8th place).

Head to the Forbes website to see the Celebrity 100 list in full, and don’t miss the Katy Perry cover story in your Next Issue app when the magazine comes out on Monday, July 6th. Not yet a Next Issue subscriber? Start your 30 day FREE trial.
