Justin Bieber Displays New Face Ink

GQ Justin Bieber

The Canadian hitmaker posted a 'selfie' on ahead of his concert in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday (07May16), when he displayed a small black mark next to his right eye.

"Resting up for the show in Philly it's gonna be a good one mark my words," the 22-year-old captioned the shot, not addressing the apparent new ink on his face.

Fans were quick to assume that the mark was a new piece of skin art, and celebrity tattoo artist Jonboy, from New York City shop West 4 Tattoo, seemingly confirmed it was real by sharing a photo of Bieber sporting the dark ink, along with a curiously red and swollen cheek.

Selena Gomez Frustrated By Media's Rehab 'Fixation'

Selena Gomez GQ

The Come and Get It singer/actress hit a personal low in 2014 when she had to cancel a string of dates on her Australian tour, drawing criticism as she claimed she needed to spend some time on herself in order to "be the best person I can be".

She subsequently checked herself in to the Dawn at The Meadows treatment centre in Arizona to seek help, amid rumours she was battling substance abuse problems, but last year (15), she revealed the real reason for her rehab stay as she went public with her lupus diagnosis.

Selena has since bounced back from her health issues, and her career is now going from strength to strength, and she is keen to move the conversation on from her past problems.

Charlize Theron Blasts Ageist Hollywood

Charlize Theron GQ

The Mad Max: Fury Road star celebrated the milestone birthday in August last year (15), but despite her flawless features, she admits to still feeling a pressure to look a certain way.

"We live in a society where women wilt and men age like fine wine," she told Britain's GQ magazine. "And, for a long time, women accepted it. We were waiting for society to change, but now we’re taking leadership. It would be a lie to say there is less worry for women as they get older than there is for men... It feels there’s this unrealistic standard of what a woman is supposed to look like when she’s over 40," she explains.

It isn't the first time the South African beauty has spoken out about ageism, as she confessed to German magazine TV Movie last year she has the same image hang ups as most women.

Justin Bieber Puts Selena Gomez Tattoo In The Shade

Justin Bieber GQ Selena Gomez

The 21-year-old still has his former flame's face inked on his wrist but admits he has attempted to disguise it since the couple split for good in January, 2013.

In a new black and white video, shot while Justin was posing for his new GQ magazine spread, the Baby singer gives a cameraman a tour of his body of art, pointing out the image of his mother Pattie's eye on his forearm and the tattoo of Jesus Christ on his calf.

But when he reaches his wrist and the tattooed likeness of Selena, he explains, "I kind of tried to cover her face up with her shading, but people still know (it's her)."

Oscar Isaac: 'I've Never Thought Of Myself As An Ethnic Actor'

GQ Oscar Isaac

The 36-year-old was born in Guatemala to a Guatemalan mother and Cuban father, but was raised in Miami, Florida, and while his family was part of the Latin community, Oscar was taught from a young age to be his own person.

"For my father, individualism was very important, and he instilled that in me," he explained to the American edition of GQ. "It was way more important to recognise myself as an individual than as part of a group. I wasn't part of the 'Latino community.' I was just a kid in high school with friends, who was into playing music."

As he reached his teenage years, his straight-laced nature meant Oscar avoided the drugs and alcohol many of his peers enjoyed.

Samuel L. Jackson: 'I Have My Dvds On Standby'

Samuel L Jackson GQ

The 66-year-old star is one of the most prolific actors in Hollywood, with eight films he is either shooting or has in post-production at the moment.

As fun as he finds filming flicks watching them back is just as good, with Samuel never turning off the TV if he's on.

"I like watching myself in movies... if I am channel surfing and I pass a movie that I'm in, I'm watching it no matter what," he assured Britain's GQ magazine. "I have a drawer of nothing but my DVDs, so if nothing else, I can just go in and pull one out and put it in."

Karla Souza Refused To Wear Lingerie For Gq Cover

Karla Souza GQ

The How To Get Away With Murder star was offered the chance to feature on the front page of the popular publication, but she didn't see eye to eye with editors with their vision for the shoot.

"They wanted me in a bra and panties but I was like, 'I don't want to do the bra and panties on a bed thing,'" Karla told E! News. "I wanted sophisticated, fancy, nice and beautiful and sexy, but not that. After a year, they were like, 'OK!' Luckily, they said yes to bathing suits and things I felt more comfortable in."

Souza eventually agreed on wearing a bustier and strappy bikini bottoms for the cover, despite the magazine's bosses' wariness over its lack of sex appeal.

Jaden Smith Dreams Of Becoming The Next Banksy

Will Smith GQ

The After Earth star has been planning to disappear from public life in his 30s since he was a teenager, only popping up from time to time to wow the art world.

He tells GQ magazine, "No one will know where I am in 10 years. They'll see me pop up, but they'll be like, 'Where'd you come from?' No one will know where I'm at.

"I've been planning that since I was, like, 13... It'll be kind of like (reclusive artist) Banksy but in a different way. More of a social impact. Helping people. But through art installations."

Bob Geldof Turns On U.k. Politician At Awards Show

Bob Geldof GQ

The veteran pop star attended the ceremony to present the Chancellor of the Exchequer with the magazine's Politician of the Year award, but he used the opportunity to criticise Osborne and the rest of the Conservative government for offering to take in 20,000 refugees from war torn Syria by 2020.

Before handing over the trophy, Geldof told Osborne, "I don't want to ambush you, George, I talked to you on the phone yesterday. But the government's response is inadequate. It can't be a numbers game. I don't know how that works out. It has to be a game of empathy and kindness."

Osborne appeared unperturbed by the outburst and instead went on to praise Geldof for his work tackling humanitarian crises, saying, "If anyone should be getting an award it's this guy... For my generation he is the one that ‎inspired us on international development..."
