Kendall Jenner has hinted she plans to quit her family's reality TV series in the near future.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who appears in the June edition of French Vogue, admits she wants to focus on her modeling career.
When asked about her success on the catwalk, the 18-year-old brunette beauty told E! News, "I get more and more comfortable with everything. It's fun though, it's the world I wanna be living in, so it's awesome."
Kendall found out she would be appearing in the fashion bible during Paris Fashion Week in March. "I remember hearing about it and I freaked out. I was so excited. It's a dream, it's incredible, so it's amazing. You don't know how to react, it's so surreal," she added.
The model also opened up about her relationship with US Vogue editor Anna Wintour: "She's always been very kind to me. She's really awesome."
Demi Lovato is pulling a J.Lo.
The singer-actress is rumored to be leaving her judging stint at The X Factor after having served on the panel for two seasons alongside the likes of Britney Spears, Kelly Rowland, and Paulina Rubio. A source close to the former Disney star claims that she wants to focus on her music career (sound familiar?), adding, "She had a great run and a good time."
The move to quit the reality show may be wise considering her upcoming tour schedule, which runs from February to March 2014.
When asked last year why she remained on the judging panel for another season (as fellow panelists Britney Spears and L.A. Reid exited), Demi stated that she wanted to expand her fan base: "When you have the opportunity to be in front of America every single week several times a week, that's a very incredible opportunity, not only because your fans get to know you better, but… I was on the Disney Channel forever, and was waiting for that right job that would help me cross over to the mainstream world... I was not only in front of my fans every week, but I was also in front of adults. I never used to get recognized by adults, and now when I'm at the airport or the grocery store, the guy behind the register will be like, 'I love you on X Factor!'"
Now that Bradley Cooper is an Oscar-nominated actor who commands top billing in critically-acclaimed films, he's open to talking about his struggles as an actor in Hollywood before he was a household name.
In the January issue of GQ, Cooper recalls his time working on the J.J. Abrams show Alias, which stars Jennifer Garner as Sydney Bristow. Despite having a recurring role as Bristow's best friend Will Tippin, Cooper was unhappy with his lack of screen time: “I would only work three days a week... And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, ‘Ugh.’ And then next thing you know, I was like, ‘I want to f*****g kill myself.’"
With his growing frustration over his lack of work on Alias, Cooper then asked Abrams to write his character off. “J.J. was like, ‘OK,’ He probably would’ve fired me, anyway," Cooper quipped. He even considered quitting his acting career altogether: "At some point, you have to come to terms with 'The business just doesn’t want you,' you know what I mean?"

Elton John says that reality TV stars should be assassinated.
The 66-year-old singer thinks these kinds of shows - which he has been a vocal critic of - attract "nightmare people" who are just hungry for fame. "With reality television, you get all these nightmare people who want to be successful, when you really want them to be assassinated," Elton said, speaking on BBC World satellite radio.
The "Home Again" hitmaker - whose 31st studio album The Diving Board deals with issues surrounding entertainers finding fame young - thinks there are many talented individuals who end up spiralling out of control because they would "do anything" for fame. "It's about someone who's attracted to fame no matter what. They want fame whatever the consequences, and they'll do anything to get there," he said when quizzed about his album.
He thinks Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan - who has been to rehab on a number of occasions to combat substance abuse problems, most recently she underwent 90-days of court ordered treatment at the Betty Ford Clinic and then the Cliffside Malibu center - was a "victim of success." He added, "Lindsay Lohan, unfortunately, who had a great career as an actress and as a recording artist, she had a hit album... Suddenly, everything has fallen to bits because of the drugs. Her parents were a nightmare. She has become a victim of success and she wants success, no matter how much [it costs].''
Kerry Washington thinks her success is a "miracle."
The Scandal star, who is expecting her first child with her NFL star husband of four months, Nnamdi Asomugha, was terrified of becoming famous but she decided to become an actress because she loves telling stories.
"It's a miracle to even work in this industry. I didn't become an actress to be on the cover of magazines. That was always a little scary to me. What I love about acting is the craft of becoming different people and telling a story," the 36-year-old beauty told the December/January issue of Lucky magazine.
Despite being considered one of the most beautiful and fashion savvy women in Hollywood, the New York-born star insists it takes a lot of work to make her look good and she doesn't compare herself to other actresses: "Even for me, I think it's a real danger to compare yourself to someone on a television show. I know that I am not going to look like [Scandal character] Olivia when I wake up and go to the bathroom at 4 o'clock in the morning. On the set, it's somebody's job to follow me around all day with spackle."
Selena Gomez wishes she was still a Disney star.
The 21-year-old star singer-and-actress found fame on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place - where she played young wizard Alex Russo - and misses her the years of teen acting as she makes a transformation into an adult star. "I miss it. I wish I was still a part of it. I think it was the perfect thing for me at the time I was 14," she said.
The brunette beauty insists she doesn't yet feel as though she has made the transition from teen star to adult artist. Despite starring in Spring Breakers, releasing her debut album Dance Stars and overhauling her style, Selena - who previously dated Justin Bieber - sometimes still feels like she's 15.
Being interviewed by JLS star Marvin Humes on UK TV show Lorraine, she said, "I think everybody has a journey and you feel you have to love at the end of the day. There is not really a formula. I don't really know if I have fully made the transition yet. I feel like half the time I feel like I'm 15 and then I feel like I'm 21 then I feel like I'm 30 when I'm sitting at home by myself on a Friday night watching the same episode of Friends."
Sinead O'Connor holds Simon Cowell responsible for "murdering music."
The Irish singer appeared in an interview this week to address her ongoing feud with Miley Cyrus, but instead let rip at the music mogul and his flagship show The X Factor, blaming him for the death of rock 'n' roll and the exploitation of young female artists' sexuality . The war of words began earlier this week when Sinead warned Miley in an open letter about the dangers of the music industry and projecting an overly-sexual image, and the 20-year-old singer responded by lashing out on Twitter, mocking bipolar disease sufferer Sinead for her mental health issues.
Simon Cowell says the idea of retirement makes him "want to jump off a bridge."
The Britain's Got Talent and X Factor boss also claims that he has never had his heart broken and thinks most people's marriages are boring. The 52-year-old star insists he isn't ready to retire and told the Telegraph newspaper, "I'd rather drop dead doing my job. The idea of getting up in the morning to play golf makes me want to jump off a bridge."
But Simon isn't worried about getting older because he believes there are advantages. "You don't get so insecure or competitive. And if you can grow old gracefully, you're fit and healthy and not bad looking," he explained.
Simon - who called off his engagement to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy in early 2012 - was most recently linked to Carmen Electra and is still close to his ex-girlfriends Jackie Sinclair, Sinitta and Terri Seymour but doesn't think he will ever marry: "Well it worries me because I've seen it destroy people. And I couldn't think of anything worse than being in an unhappy marriage. Actually, being on my own is the best thing in the world."
America Ferrera is planning a return to TV.
The End Of Watch actress - who shot to fame on TV show Ugly Betty - is reportedly planning to star in telenovela project Pedro & Maria, a contemporary adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
"Pedro and Maria are two opposites cut from the same cloth caught in the trap of forbidden love. He is a second generation Dominican from the mean streets of Washington Heights. She is a Puerto Rican whose parents made millions as real estate developers. It's a clash of the haves and the have-nots, of Main St vs. Wall St, set against a volatile cultural backdrop that fiercely believes neither side should mix with the other," the series synopsis states.
Although America found fame as the titular character in Ugly Betty - earning an Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award for her performance - she has previously admitted she nearly quit acting to follow her academic dream until one of her professors gave her some helpful encouragement:
The Office changed John Krasinski's life. The 33-year-old actor was a waiter before he landed the role of Jim Halpert on the NBC show and John - who is married to Emily Blunt - will always be grateful for what it did for him.
"To say this show gave me everything is the biggest understatement. I was a waiter before The Office so to me, this was a winning lottery ticket. Everything about my life has changed," he told Us Weekly.
John admits he is "emotional" about the end of the show, and while he doesn't want to say goodbye, is happy he and his cast mates have the opportunity to bring their storylines to a satisfactory conclusion: "I get so emotional to think that we're ending the show. But I'm unbelievably proud to be a part of one that actually gets to end. Instead of being asked to leave, I actually get a shot at bringing the whole story and all the characters to a close."
