Beauty can be timeless!!! At 50 years old, Sandra Bullock has been chosen as the World's Most Beautiful Woman Of 2015 by People magazine, but even she admits that learning she captured the annual honor made her laugh out loud.

"No, really. I just said, 'That's ridiculous,' " the Oscar winner tells the publication.

In fact, beauty to her doesn't involve a person's physical appearance. "Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it's just so hard not to say, 'Oh, I need to look like that'. No, be a good person, be a good mom, do a good job with the lunch, let someone cut in front of you who looks like they're in a bigger hurry. The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren't trying."

Other beauties featured on the annual list include Ariana Grande, Gabrielle Union, Vanessa Hudgens, Taraji P. Henson, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Laverne Cox, GiGi Hadid and more.

Kanye West Opens Up In 'PAPER'

Kanye West : PAPER (April 2015) photo rs_634x826-150420121652-634-paper-kanye-west.ls.42015.jpg

Months after his wife Kim Kardashian broke the Internet with her sizzling cover, Kanye West fronts the April 2015 issue of PAPER magazine, where he dishes on his fashion choices, the Illuminati rumors, racism and want to inspire the youth. Read some highlights beneath:

On Having No Regrets: "When I look in North’s eyes, I’m happy about every mistake I’ve ever made. I’m happy that I fought to bring some type of reality to this world we choose to stay in right now, driven by brands and corporations."

On His Fashion Choices:
"When you sit down with Riccardo Tisci at the Louvre and he pitches the idea of you wearing a leather kilt, which could be considered by all of your gangbanging friends as some sort of a dress or skirt, at that point you are now a part of the fashion world. You have paid your dues to be an insider. I paid my dues when I had to wear a kilt in Chicago, and friends would say, ‘What’s your boy got on?’ But there are warriors that have killed people in kilts in the past. Who gets to decide what’s hard and what’s not hard? When I saw this kilt, I liked it. I was into it. It looked fresh to me. I felt creative; I didn’t feel limited by some perception."

On the Illuminati Rumors: "I heard a comment—a joke—about the TIDAL press conference being an Illuminati moment. If there was actually an Illuminati, it would be more like the energy companies. Not celebrities that gave their life to music and who are pinpointed as decoys for people who really run the world. I’m tired of people pinpointing musicians as the Illuminati. That’s ridiculous. We don’t run anything; we’re celebrities. We’re the face of brands. We have to compromise what we say in lyrics so we don’t lose money on a contract. Madonna is in her 50s and gave everything she had to go up on an award show and get choked by her cape. She’s judged for who she adopts. Fuck all of this sensationalism. We gave you our lives. We gave you our hearts. We gave you our opinions!"

On Experiencing Racism As A Kid: "When I was 10 years old I lived in China, and at the time they used to come up to me and rub my face to see if the color would rub off. It was really fucked up, but I feel like it was preparing me for a world perspective that a lot of my friends who never got a chance to travel didn’t get. Now my perspective, a lot of times, is so much wider than someone who’s limited to the concept of any particular so-called world that’s not the real world."

On Wanting To Inspire Young Artists: "I think it’s so important for me, as an artist, to give Drake as much information as I can, A$AP, Kendrick, Taylor Swift, any of these younger artists as much information as I can to make better music in the future. We should all be trying to make something that’s better."

On Wanting To Be A Voice & Help: "The times that I’ve looked like a crazy person—when I was screaming at an interviewer or screaming from the stage—all I was screaming was, ‘Help me to help more! I’ve given all I’ve got. I’ve gone into fucking debt. It’s all I’ve got to give. But if I had a little bit more opportunity, I could give so much more.’ That’s what I was screaming for. Help me to help more."

Kylie Jenner Stuns On 'Teen Vogue'

Kylie Jenner : Teen Vogue (May 2015) photo kylie-jenner-teen-vogue-1-1429215486.jpg

'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star Kylie Jenner covers the May 2015 issue of Teen Vogue and she looks stunning as usual, but in the publication, she reveals that she really puts in the time to make sure she looks as perfect as possible.

"I never really wear makeup unless I need to, because when I do my makeup I like to really do my makeup. So I’m never going to spend just 20 minutes, you know?"

"A good night out is, like, two and a half hours for full makeup, curling hair, whatever. I love false lashes - individuals, strips, extensions." Whatever she is doing is working, because people are going out of their way to duplicate her look and those lips. (See: The Kylie Jenner Challenge)

In the issue, the rapper dishes on his larger than life ego, saying: "Everytime I say something that’s extremely truthful out loud, it literally breaks the Internet. I don’t care about having a legacy, I don’t care about being remembered. The most important thing to me is while I’m here, what can we do for each other to make life easier, make life doper for our kids as they grow?"

Cooper, on the other hand, was just honored to make the cut. "It's a real big thing to be included in anything that has to do with Time magazine let alone the 100 list!"

Ballet dancer Misty Copeland, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Univision news anchor Jorge Ramos also land covers, while West's wife Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, Lee Daniels and President Obama are also among the 100 people on the list.

Monica Goes 'Red' For New Album

Monica : Code Red (Promo) photo 2-Monica-Browns-New-Red-Pixie-Cut.jpg

As she prepares to release her first new music since 2012, R&B veteran Monica debuts a bold new look and talks exclusively with PEOPLE magazine about the inspiration behind the cut, as well as, her upcoming seventh studio album 'Code Red'. See what she had to say beneath:

Monica Debuts A Bold New Hairstyle

These days, a “New hair!” selfie on Instagram (complete with a sassy girl emoji) is de rigueur for announcing a makeover. But Monica just blew the selfie game out of the water — and saved her new hair reveal for a photo shoot honoring her new single.

Back in January, the R&B singer teased fans on Instagram, sharing that her latest record was in the works. Now she’s revealing her new look exclusively with PEOPLE and opening up about her bold style choices.

The Grammy winner ditched her signature, long dark tresses for a fiery red crop to celebrate her seventh studio album, “Code Red,” whose name, she explains, inspired the dye job. As for the style, she channeled a little inspiration from her very first record.

“The cut symbolizes me getting back to the fearlessness and courageous part of myself that I shared with the world in the ’90s when I released my first album ‘Miss Thang,'” Monica shares with PEOPLE. “It’s easy to over-think things and not trust your natural instincts. I let go and let the music be created in my truth.”

Her new look also reflects the place she’s in today. “I love that the cover speaks to how I feel as a woman, artist, mother and wife,” she explains. “I feel strong, encouraged and grateful. I also love that it’s fashion forward.”

Monica’s neon yellow outfit is definitely high-fashion (a Versace jacket, Hervé Léger bathing suit and Guiseppe Zanotti caged heels), a look that’s not surprising for the stylish star, who says she has no fashion regrets. “I embrace my cross color stage just as much as I embrace and appreciate my sophisticated moments,” she says. “It’s been a fun journey and it’s awesome to look back at all of my many style changes over 20 years.”

As for any beauty regrets, she realizes now that she should have embraced her scars and the aspects that make her “unique” sooner in life. We should all probably take a cue from Monica!

Read excerpts from her shoot, which hits newsstands across the U.S. on April 21st, beneath:

On The Success Of "Fancy":
"I think it's particularly badass. It was one of the most culturally impactful songs of last year, and two fucking chicks in their early 20s wrote it."

On Her Body Type:
"I hope women think, Iggy Azalea actually has a body that is relatable to my body… and you should feel fucking good about that."

On Acting Ridiculous:
"I’m a little scrappy for sure, but I like that about myself. Even with paparazzi pictures of me looking like complete shit, and people are like, ‘She should try harder,’ I’m like, no. There’s something to say about not being so contrived all the time. You should hold on to that as long as you can."

Kenya Moore Sizzles On 'Kontrol'



She may bring the drama to 'The Real Housewives Of Atlanta' on a weekly basis, but on the Spring 2015 issue of Kontrol magazine, Kenya Moore sizzles, switches up her look with some help from stylist Julian R. Lark and chats about her latest projects. Read excerpts beneath:

On Moore Hair Care:
If you’ve had hair envy, Kenya is releasing her own hair care line on the interwebs, Moore Hair Care just in time for Mother’s Day and will be in stores in August. With Kenya’s hair being very healthy, defines what healthy hair looks and feels like. "Healthy hair is hair that isn’t dry, damaged, split or frayed. A lot of women are not happy with their hair and they think the only option they have is to wear weave, wigs extensions or clip –ins. Healthy hair has movement and shine."

On Her Portrayal This Season:
"I feel this is one of the best seasons because it shows who I really am. I have people around that genuinely know and love me."

On Phaedra and Apollo:
"I definitely feel redeemed from the feud with Apollo and Phaedra." This was quite evident with the airing of Sunday’s show with Kenya and Phaedra making amends and hopefully slowing working to build a better friendship. Only time will tell.

On Her Friendship With Cynthia:
"How so? We’re both models/beauty queens that love fashion, worked in New York, and know most of the same people.” Now that things have changed between Cynthia and Nene, it’s been a lot easier to develop a deeper friendship. "You no longer have someone constantly telling you who to be friends with and to choose."

On Whether NeNe Will Match Her Donation:
"No, I don’t think so. People can see the type of person she is. She used it to show the world how disgusting and evil she is. Why would you shortchange some kids because you want to be in a pissing contest with someone?"
