Kim Kardashian West bares all on the tenth anniversary issue of C magazine and the reality star, who is now pregnant with her second child with husband Kanye West, opens up about her first pregnancy and how the criticism changed her.

"It was the worst," the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star reveals. "I couldn't help it, and everyone would say, 'She can't stop eating.' I delivered at 180, and they were like, 'She's 210 pounds. She's getting dumped because she's too fat' and all these ridiculous stories."

"It really took a toll after the fact, when I was losing weight," adds the 33-year-old. "I gained 50 pounds, and it's tough to get it off. I was dedicated, but also, it changed the way I viewed wanting my picture taken. Before I was always smiling, and so into being out and about. After I had the baby, I was like, these are the same people that made fun of me, and posted the stories that were so awful, calling me fat for something I couldn't control. I don't want to smile for them."

"Even if I was more confident, I just didn't feel like being that girl who was going to be smiling for every photo," she tells the publication. "It changed my mood; it changed who I was; it changed my personality a lot." It also changed her priorities and made her realize what is most important. "If I'm working on an individual project, like my fragrance, I will only work on it if I'm 100 percent passionate about it, because that takes me away from my family," she says. "I base my whole schedule around my daughter [North West] and my husband — that's how life is now."

It has been a full week of surprises for country superstar Carrie Underwood with the release of her new single, "Smoke Break", and its accompany video just days later. Now, the 32-year-old mom of Isaiah Michael has unveiled the stunning artwork for 'Storyteller'.

"I feel like a lot of the songs that I wrote and gravitated to ended up being more traditional and 'twangy' than anything I have ever done before. I just went with it! I love the story telling aspect of Country music… It’s one of the reasons I always wanted to be a part of it."

8/20/2015 0

7x-Grammy® winner Carrie Underwood is back with "Smoke Break", the first single from her forthcoming fifth studio album 'Storyteller', due on October 23rd.

Produced by Jay Joyce, the single was written by Underwood with Hillary Lindsey and Chris DeStefano, with whom she wrote her most recent No.1 hit, "Little Toy Gun".

Underwood says that the title isn’t necessarily meant to be literal, saying: "It’s basically an anthem for every hard-working person. We all wear many hats and are spread thin, so we can all relate to being tired and needing a break. This song is about having that moment to be able to escape from whatever it is that’s stressing you out and have some time for yourself."

Kerry Washington is all about moving forward in life!!! After giving birth to her daughter Isabelle last April, she dons sports bra and a leotard for the September issue of Self magazine.

Still, despite looking as fit as she ever has for the photo shoot, she actually would rather not hear that she has her pre-baby body back. "A few weeks ago, my manager asked: 'Do you feel like you're back? I feel like you're back.' She meant it as a total compliment, but we had this great conversation where I was like, 'You know what? I try really hard not to use that language, because it's not about going backward in life,'" the 'Scandal' actress explains.

"I've been really focused on not being 'back' to anything, but being the best version of myself right now," she adds. "My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle." Bravo!!!

After shedding 60 pounds of pregnancy weight, R&B singer Ciara, who is currently dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, shows that she is back in fight form for the September issue of Shape magazine, where she dishes on her dieting tricks. Read excerpts beneath:

On Losing Her Baby Weight: "When I was pregnant with Future, one thing I learned quickly was, don't ever let a pregnant lady be hungry, because when I was, I was like the Tasmanian Devil! I indulged in all the good food the world has to offer. After he was born—when I couldn't exercise yet—I kept eating, and I gained 60 pounds. But as soon as the doctor said I could start training again, I was on the treadmill the very next day. Once I got back into it, I worked out two or three times daily. I would go to Gunnar [Peterson] first for my one-hour training session, then I'd have two more cardio sessions later in the day. That, along with a really clean eating plan, was how I lost 60 pounds in four months. It was a very intense program, and I was extremely focused on it."

On Her Love for Boxing: "Gunnar puts me through an hour-long plyometric cardio circuit that always includes boxing elements. What's amazing is that you're getting three-in-one training: It's hitting your muscles; it's a cardiovascular workout; and it's a mental exercise. You have to be superfocused when you're boxing. After I've done a few rounds, I feel as if I can conquer the world."

On Her Dieting Tricks: "First, I give myself a break. When I'm on a strict eating regimen, at some point I have to have French fries, a cheeseburger, and some pizza. And Oreos and vanilla ice cream! I also believe that drinking tons of water and flushing out your system is crucial for training. It really helped me drop the weight. I tell myself that water is my medicine and that to stay well, I have to drink a gallon of it every day."

On Her Hilarious Dieting Mantra: "'The food isn't going anywhere.' You know those days when you think you have to have a plate of pasta right now? When I'm trying to be good, I take a minute to ask myself, Do you really need to eat all this crazy stuff? It will still be around if you want it later.'"

On Achieving Success: "I truly believe that if you put your goals in writing, speak them out loud, and work for them, they will happen."

All Hail The Queen!!! Landing the most important magazine cover of the year, Beyoncé fronts the September issue of Vogue magazine, becoming only the third African-American woman following Naomi Campbell and Halle Berry to grace the covet issue.

Shot by Mario Testino and slated to hit newsstands on August 25th, another interesting fact about the cover is that the star only appears in photos and declined to be interviewed by the publication. This is unusual for Vogue, but certainly not for Mrs. Carter. Sigh!
