Check out Jessica Biel, who recently started showing off her engagement ring from Justin Timberlake in public, on the cover of April’s Wmagazine!
Jessica told the magazine she’s tired of her tomboy-ish athletic image. “I think I need to destroy my reputation. This whole I’m outdoorsy, I’m really healthy—it’s too squeaky-clean. That’s going to be my new thing: Go dark and unhealthy. It’s time to be very, very bad.”
Bruno Mars can add a new accomplishment to his bio: The 10th man to appear on the cover of Playboy in its 58-year history.
He’ll appear in the April Sex and Music issue of Playboy, on sale Friday,in a pictorial shot by Tony Kelly.
Some snippets from the interview:
On the musicians he looked up to growing up: “Growing up in the showbiz world, I looked up to those guys: Frank Sinatra and of course Elvis Presley. My dad was into the 1950s doo-wop era. If you look at those groups, or at James Brown, Jackie Wilson and the Temptations in the 1960s, you’ll see you had to be sharp onstage.”
On the musician he’d most like to work with if he could: “Jimi Hendrix. I think he’s the greatest guitar player in the world, and I would want to see him do his thing in person. He’s the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place.”
On his music: “My album is called Doo-Wops & Hooligans, but it’s not a 1950s ‘Earth Angel’ sound like you hear in Grease-type movies. I could sing you a thousand and one doo-wop songs. I love the simplicity in that music. It’s not superpoetic, it’s just from the heart.”

A pleasant change from all the tabloid covers about Whitney Houston is this week’s issue of Rolling Stone.
Music journalist David Browne reports about Whitney’s life and career — as well as her darker moments.
But it was her dark side that confused her friends and colleagues. Gerry Griffith, who introduced Whitney to Clive Davis, told Rolling Stone, “A lot of us talked about that, and no one could come up with an answer… “Where is that rebellion coming from? It didn’t come out for a while.”
