Beyonce Talks about Future Children and Jersey Shore

Beyonce has been entertaining audiences for over a decade and now the singer says that all her hard work throughout her teenage years and early 20s will pay off for her future as a wife, and possibly, as a mother.

“I sacrificed so much as a kid and as a teenager,” Beyonce told InStyle. “I have no regrets because my job kept me focused. When you’re young—18 or 19—you have the energy and drive. That’s the time to work as hard as you can,” she added. “Now I'm a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.”

She told the magazine that when she is not on stage, she is mostly a homebody.

“In my free time I prefer to do nothing but sit on the couch and watch TV,” she said. “I have to confess that my guilty pleasure is Jersey Shore.”

Justin Bieber Urges Fans Not To Text And Drive!

Justin urged everyone to text responsibly as it is six times likelier to crash while texting than it is while intoxicated.

Justin Bieber held two campaigns which promoted responsible text messaging through a new app, which disables texting, emailing, and keyboard functions if you’re driving faster than 10 miles per hour!

In his campaign, Justin worked alongside the Remember Alex Brown Foundation, which was organized by the family of Alex Brown, a teenager who died tragically because she was texting while driving.

Here’s what Justin had to say about his campaign:

“As a 17-year-old driver, I am aware of the countless distractions that we teenagers face on the road, and texting is one that is preventable. There are too many young people, like Alex Brown, whom we’ve lost because of texting while driving, and it is my hope that, through this partnership with PhoneGuard, we will raise awareness of this issue and create safer conditions for everyone on the road.”

Emma Stone: Confidence Is the Key to Beauty

Emma Stone looks totally gorgeous when she’s ruling the red carpet, but playing determined writer Skeeter Phelan in The Help gave the actress a new perspective on the importance of inner beauty.

In an exclusive interview with YouBeauty.com, Stone explains her character’s evolution. “I think at the beginning, understandably, she is deeply affected by her appearance and her mother’s disapproval of it,” she says. But she “is lucky enough to have [her maid] Constantine, who reminds her that she is beautiful and smart and could choose her life.”

And although Skeeter’s self-esteem begins to flourish as she changes her look, at the end of the day, Stone says it’s not outer beauty that makes the difference. “Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’—not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves,” she says. “I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.”
