Adele, Taylor, Alicia, Pink, J-Lo & More Make People Mag’s “Most Beautiful 2013″ List
Some of music’s biggest names are also among the most attractive folks in the world, according to People magazine. Adele, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Pink, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Usher and Carrie Underwood have all made the “A-List” in the magazine’s Most Beautiful 2013 issue, on stands Friday.
Each of the “A-List” beauties were asked to reveal what they’ve learned to love about themselves. “Other than my ears? I finally grew into them,” says Justin Timberlake. Beyonce also focused on that body part, saying, “My ears. I think they’re pretty well-proportioned, but for a long time they weren’t.”
Taylor Swift, meanwhile, has learned to love her complexion. “I’m pretty pale,” she tells People. “In high school, I was insecure and thought it’d be cool to go to a tanning bed. Now, I just let it look the way it looks.” Alicia Keys says she’s embraced her entire body, telling People, “I’ve learned to love my curves, my womanliness. I used to hide it, downlplay it…but now I revel in it.”
Pink says she’s learned to accept something about her personality: “My insatiable thirst for finding the truth.” Similarly, Usher says he’s finally embraced his “persistent nature,” adding, “I refuse to allow my passion for artistic expression, living a full life or finding the spark in other people, to ever die.”
Other music stars are scattered throughout the issue’s many “Most Beautiful” features. For example, Demi Lovato and Kelly Rowland have posed makeup-free for the “No Makeup” feature, along with actresses Jordana Brewster, Olivia Munn and Famke Jannsen.
“When I don’t have makeup on, I feel confident,” Demi tells the magazine. “When I’m not working, I wear as minimal makeup as possible. Sometimes I just go without, for sure. I, like, forgot how to do nighttime makeup!”
In the Beautiful at Every Age section, which lists beauties in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s, Jordin Sparks and Selena Gomez show up in the 20s section, while Shakira pops up in the 30s section.
Sheryl Crow, meanwhile, is featured in the “Half Their Age” section, spotlighting stars who look younger than their years. Sheryl tells the magazine that she still rocks the same look she did when she was younger, jeans, boots and a jacket — and tries to stay away from anything that’s too young for her, like mini skirts. She also says she wishes she could give some fashion advice to her younger self.
“I would say, ‘Even though once you become well known, all the stylists and all the designers wanna give you clothes, make sure you stick with what is really you, instead of just putting on things that are high fashion,’” Sheryl laughs. “‘Because I have worn some crazy outfits in my day!”
