Keri dished on her rise to stardom,
Before all her hit songs, Hilson worked behind the scenes as a successful songwriter. Stepping out of the background was not as effortless as Hilson, 28, now makes it look. “The transition to being in front of the camera was very, very difficult,” she says. “Everyone has their idea of what you should look like. ‘You need to get into the gym.’ ‘You need to wear less clothes.’ ‘Wear dresses and skirts.’ ‘Put a weave in.’ ‘Cut your hair.’ ‘Color your hair.’ There are so many ways that others tug at you.” To Hilson, posing naked stripped her back down to her real self. “We do a lot of things to seek validation: I have to get more expensive handbags or fake lashes or fake boobs. This shoot was about dropping all that.”
Sweet Ashley is all grown up…
Tisdale brought her mother to her nude shoot. “I’ve always wanted to be sure my parents approve of what I do,” she says. “Even with my tattoos, my mom went with me. The ‘believe’ tattoo is because my mom always told me to believe.” TheÂ High School Musical andHellcats actress does six workouts a week, rotating a boot-camp class, cardio, strength training, and Spinning, but disrobing was actually much less about showing off her hard-earned shape than it was about growing up. “I’m 25, almost 26, but people think of me as much younger because I look young,” she says. “Being in this shoot was me saying, ‘I’m not just the young girl everybody thinks I am. I’m actually a woman.'”
Lauren Conrad is onÂ theÂ May cover of Â Allure looking adorbs!!
On being sexy: “I’m not a sexy person. I’m OK with it,” she said. “I’ve never been the sexy girl. Whenever I’ve had a boyfriend, he’s always been like, ‘Oh, you’re cute.'”
On Being insecure at times: “You have two good angles and a hundred bad ones,” said Conrad. “If I’m shopping and I see paparazzi my [hand]bag goes directly to my thighs.”
On being herself onÂ TV:“I was 17 when I signed on [toÂ Laguna Beach], and that’s a vulnerable age anyway,” Conrad said. “I was still figuring out who I was. To be on television and told a million things that are wrong with you was hard, but I very quickly decided that I just had to be me. I watched people change everything about themselves, and they still weren’t happy.”
