The Duffster Opens Up About Reinventing Herself And Her Brand!

hilary-duff-wants-to-make-another-record

Hilary Duff may have gotten her start as a Disney princess, starring on Lizzie McGuire, but the actress has since expanded well into the music, book, and fashion worlds, and recently opened up about how, as a recently married young woman, she's ready for the world to view her in a more adult context professionally, and is plotting her moves to achieve that!

Check out some HIGHlights from a recent interview:

On being a brand:

“People aren’t just actors, singers or whatever these days. I like being a brand. I worked really hard for my brand and have gotten to do amazing things, go to amazing places because of it.”

On challenging herself with different movie roles:

"For a long time, I worried about my reputation and how people perceived me. One thing I did when I was younger was not concern myself with the project I was picking. I was just having fun. The characters seem all the same because they kind of were — a very relatable girl. That worked for me at that time. But now that I’m older, and if not exactly struggling, at least trying to prove myself by taking on different roles, I have to pay much more attention to that and do things that are a departure from each other. I worry about getting stuck doing one thing again. I liked that ‘Renee’ project very much. But I had done ‘Greta’ a couple of years ago, a very similar story…a girl who doesn’t fit in anywhere. Similar enough that I had to say I don’t want to go back to repeating myself."

On her new film, Bloodworth:

"I don’t know much about Southern Gothic, but I read this script and the book, ‘Provinces of the Night’ that it’s based on and knew I wanted to try it, to be a part of this amazing cast. It’s about trust and betrayal and growing up in the worst circumstances. My character basically grew up in a brothel. I just put on those cowboy boots and those clothes and became Raven. One thing I knew this would do is help people view me in a different way."

On going back to music:

"When I finished the last tour, I won’t say I fired everyone, but I took a step back from music. I wanted to focus more on my personal life, which I hadn’t done since I was a little kid — 10 ten years or more. But now I’ve got the itch again. So we’re just starting to get a new team together. With all of it, I’m taking my time more, these days, trying to make the best decisions possible."

Wow. We're so impressed with what an articulate, smart, business-savvy young woman she's turned out to be!

She's certainly accomplished so much during her time in the limelight, and remained pretty classy and low-key throughout it, so hopefully she can continue down this road and accomplish all of the goals she seems to have set for herself!

Well done, gurl!

We're looking forward to seeing where your career takes you!

Madonna's Publicist On GaGa!

We know she's trying to be funny, but STILL!

Madonna's publicist, Liz Rosenberg, recently took a tiny jab at Lady GaGa in Entertainment Weekly when she she said:

"Of course, the natural instinct is to wonder: Where does she take it from here? She's taken it pretty far on the fashion front and seems to be having fun with it. The next step might be a nice pastel sweater set with pearls and sensible shoes. That would be REALLY shocking."

Sometimes, saying nothing is the best route!

Thoughts??

The Reinvention Of Lindsay! Taking Tips From Brit Brit!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanBritney Spears

Back from the brink of Lindsanity, Miz Lohan is getting involved with the people responsible for Britney Spears' life transformation.

LOLhan has turned over her finances to Nashville businesswoman Lou Taylor and Britney's manager, Larry Rudolph, is interesting in rehabilitating her music career.

And she's playing it smart! Lindsay has turned down $150,000 offers to host pAArties at clubs and casinos.

"It doesn't seem right — Lindsay just got out of rehab and prison, and certain casino owners are offering a ton of money for her to host a party and be around alcohol when she has specifically been told not to," claims a source.

Another insider said:

"Lindsay knows she has to stay home and behave, she knows one wrong move could land her back in jail. She has support from her mom, Dina, and Lou Taylor, who is a strong influence and a deeply religious and principled woman.

Lou has been working on fashion deals for Lindsay including the Marc Ecko ads and a deal with a Russian fashion company. Larry Rudolph was like a father figure to Britney, and Lou is referring some business to him."

Miz Taylor began helping Lindsay at the beginning of this year when she wired her a $10,000 bail bond after she returned from Cannes.

Let's just hope this works!
