Jonathan Van Ness just made history by covering Cosmopolitan U.K

“First non-female cover star in 35 years,” the Queer Eye star tweeted on Monday. “Thanks for having me @CosmopolitanUK showing more variations of beauty for young LGBTQ+ people YAS QUEEN.”

As fans will recall, Boy George covered the magazine in 1984. One Direction‘s Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson also graced the front of the publication in 2012.

Van Ness, who identifies as non-binary and prefers he/him pronouns, wore a Christian Siriano gown and Nike sneakers for the January issue. Of course, the grooming guru’s co-stars were thrilled about the major milestone.

“THIS IS SO AWESOME, JACKAAAAAYYY!!!” fashion expert Tan France wrote on Instagram. “I’M OVER THE MOON FOR YOU, AND YOU LOOK AMAZING!”

“LOOK AT OUR LITTLE BABY!!!” home design head Bobby Berk added. 

In the cover story, the Netflix celeb covered a number of topics. 

For instance, he spoke about how he handles pressure and how he avoids burnout.

“I also now say no to a lot of s–t,” Van Ness told the magazine in regards to the latter. “I mean, stuff I really want to say yes to. The other day, Taylor [Swift] and I were making soup and she asked me to go to a Madonna concert with her. That was the day before my 5:00 a.m. flight to London to come here for this shoot and my tour. I knew it would be an amazing experience. But also…my nervous system. I was a full-time hairdresser and small-business owner, like, 19 months ago. But I hate saying no. I love my friends. I get FOMO. But I have to prioritize self-care. Because if I don’t then my candle will burn out.”

He also spoke about living with HIV. Van Ness shared his diagnosis in his memoir Over the Top, which was released in September.

“This is only the beginning,” Van Ness said. “I’m quickly realizing that there is still so much misunderstanding, so much sensationalizing of living with HIV. The stigma and the difficulty around the process of getting treatment is creating that. My work has only really just begun.”

Billie Eilish Talks About Career in Variety’s Hitmaker Issue

Published

By


Billie Eilish has had a triumphant year thanks to the release of her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, and a slew of award show wins. Her rise to stardom has not only been sudden, but impactful, which is something she recently spoke about in Variety‘s Hitmaker of the Year issue. The 17-year-old singer — who was crowned as 2019’s hitmaker — admitted that she initially wasn’t ready to be catapulted into the limelight. “I was not prepared for it. I just liked music,” she said. “It was a really weird thing to be put on me when I was 15 years old.”

Her fast-growing appeal might have something to do with the subject matter of her music. Since her early teens, the “Bad Guy” songstress has touched on a handful of significant and often difficult topics such as mental health, failed romances, and low self-esteem.

“I didn’t realize that I was saying and touching on aspects in life that were deeper than the average song,” Billie continued. “I didn’t try to do that — I just did it. When I was starting out, one of the only things I heard was that the music was too dark, too sad, too depressing, that it wasn’t happy enough. There was this period where all I was hearing was, ‘Smile! Talk about how much you love yourself!’ — and I was literally at a time when I didn’t love myself. Now I can, but then, I was a little 14-year-old. I didn’t know anything about self-love or self-care. All I knew was the stuff that I knew, and a lot of it was bad and negative. That’s what I wanted to write about, and that’s why people relate to it. I mean, even The Beatles have songs that are just like, ‘I’m miserable!'”

It’s exactly that stick-to-it-iveness that kept Billie on a self-paved path and furnished her take-the-lead mentality. So it should come as no surprise that she enjoys being a leader. “I love it,” she said. “With my friend groups and things I did, I was always the one in charge, the alpha. I’ve always wanted to do my own sh*t, be my own person — not controlling people, but controlling what I’m doing.”

And apparently, Billie has inspired fans to embrace their own inner bosses, which she discovered this past Halloween when she saw people dressed as her. “I went trick-or-treating and I walked by many Billies,” she revealed to Variety. “It was very weird.”

Still, the young talent is getting used to the recognition and wants even more for herself. “I worked really hard for a long time, and I’ve gotten to where I don’t have to work as hard anymore,” she said. “I don’t even need to talk about how bad it was because I’m so happy in it now — it’s actually, like, great and I’ve been enjoying the sh*t out of it, and I just want it to get bigger.”

Read Variety‘s full interview to learn more about Billie’s journey into the spotlight, including her relationship with fans, how she handles criticism, and, of course, her unparalleled love for The Office.
