Nicki Minaj On Motherhood, Best Advice To All Women


Pop superstar Nicki Minaj, 32, covers the July issue of Cosmopolitan and opens up about her hopes for kids one day, and her best advice to all the women out there.

On where she sees herself in ten years: “Ten years from now, I will have two children, unless my husband wants three. I will be into my fitness a lot more, I will stop yo-yo dieting, and I’ll be a housewife with careers that I can run from home. I want to be able to cook for my children, bake cookies for them, and watch them grow up. I just want to be Mommy. Take them to school, go to the parent-teacher conference, help them with their homework, and put their work on the refrigerator.”

On being open about discussing money: “Women are uncomfortable talking about money. I know it’s taboo to discuss it at work. Technically, you shouldn’t, but you need to know what people around you are making. Otherwise, you’re not going to know what you’re worth. You have to ask questions. ‘What is this person getting?’ Do your research. I’ve always been pretty competitive in terms of my pay.”

On her advice to all the women out there: “I demand that I climax. I think women should demand that. I have a friend who’s never had an orgasm in her life. In her life! That hurts my heart. It’s cuckoo to me. We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff. We’ll straddle each other, saying, ‘You gotta get on him like that and do it like this.’ She says she’s a pleaser. I’m a pleaser, but it’s 50/50.”

Savannah Guthrie: “Try To Be Gentle On Yourself”


Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie covers the May issue of New York Family and opens up about family life with husband, public relations and communications consultant Michael Feldman, and their 8-month-old daughter Vale.

On motherhood: “In my mind, of course, I always thought and hoped and wanted to have kids, but I never knew what it would be like to actually be a mom. I came home yesterday and she put her hands up and was jumping up and down in her highchair, just so excited to see me—I was like, ‘I feel like a celebrity because Vale recognizes me and knows me!’”

On being pregnant on TV: “Of course, it’s not easy, necessarily, as your body is changing, and you’re getting bigger and bigger, and you’re in the eighth month of pregnancy, and you’re like: ‘What am I going to wear today?’ And you’re doing that on national TV—so there were some days that were better than others, but mostly it added a real something special to the whole experience.”

On her best advice to new moms: “Just try to be gentle on yourself. Especially in New York, we have a lot of working moms and moms who have been successful in careers. We’re used to understanding a problem and executing a strategy at work. And then you’re at home with this little baby, and it’s just a whole new area and you know nothing about it, and you feel so helpless and you wish you could reason your way out of this situation—and you can’t! You just have to trust that you know as much about this, and about your baby, as anybody else. Don’t worry so much—that would be my best advice. I’d like to take it, too!”

Tom Selleck Has Not Named His Mustache (But We Don’t Think He’d Mind If You Have)

09/26/2014 at 01:42 PM ET

Tom Selleck may have one of the most famous mustaches in Hollywood (we’d say he’s tied with this guy for tops), but he doesn’t really take his facial hair that seriously. The 69-year-old actor (yep, Magnum P.I. is pushing 70 and still looking amazing) is featured in GQ magazine’s debut Age Issue and opens up about his iconic mustache.

First, things first: He’s never nicknamed the ‘stache (we know you’ve always wondered). “It’s coming back again, isn’t it? It was out,” the star muses of his distinctive facial hair style, adding that he doesn’t mind being viewed as the “godfather” of mustaches.

His advice for young men trying to grow one? “Go through puberty. Very important,” he jokes. “I don’t know, I know guys… Ashton Kutcher told me — I did a movie with him, I played his father-in-law — and he was joking; he said, ‘I can’t grow one.’ Part of that’s genetic. You either got it or you don’t.”

As for his milestone 70th birthday, the Blue Bloods star said it’s made him reflect more on his career.

“Yeah, 50 is one of those numbers. As is 60, as is 70,” he shares. “Well, I think the danger is, you can’t do it all. People say, ‘I don’t want to have any regrets.’ I don’t have. I’ve had bad breaks, and it was pretty tough getting to a level where I actually made a living in the business. It was pretty tough getting taken seriously. In the era I was growing up, a six-foot-four guy who looked like an old-fashioned leading man wasn’t getting any work. But I have a hunch it was tough for Dustin Hoffman, so there are crosses to bear.”

Do you think Selleck has one of the most iconic staches of all time? What do you think of his outlook on aging? Read more from his GQ interview, and share your thoughts below.
