SELENA GOMEZ,” – SPRING 2020
At just 27 years old, Selena Gomez is, in no particular order, a global pop-star with three number-one albums, the fifth-most followed person on Instagram, an actor since the age of 7, an executive producer of documentaries and television, a tabloid fixation, a philanthropist, a mental health advocate, and, most recently, the founder of an inclusive beauty line. She can now add two-time Interview cover star to her resume. In our new Spring 2020 issue, Gomez connects with her close friend Amy Schumer to reassure her—and us—that despite all the strife, she’s doing better than fine. Elsewhere in the issue, Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright makes an urgent case for the power of democracy to her friend and admirer Amy Poehler, and mogul-in-the-making Issa Rae sounds off on everything from dating apps to fashion week. Meanwhile, the boxing phenom Ryan Garcia has some fighting words for his mentor, the legendary pugilist Oscar De La Hoya, while Ashton Sanders reveals to his fellow actor Tessa Thompson why Hollywood can be “a little sus.”
Ahead of the release of her third novel, Death in Her Hands, acclaimed author Otessa Moshfegh tells the artist Alex Israel why her year has been neither restful nor relaxing. The iconic actor Michael Caine schools his co-star Aubrey Plaza on the art of being famous, and the viral rap sensation Lil Tecca gets real with fellow hip-hip misfit Rico Nast about high school, haters, and some naked cats. In an editorial photographed by Pierre-Ange Carlotti and styled by Interview’s Mel Ottenberg, the supermodel Irina Shayk makes solitude chic, The Booker Prize-winning author Julian Barnes gets paid a visit by his friend, the artist Rachel Whiteread, to discuss his new book on the dawn of the dandy, while the filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga takes Miranda July through the highs and lows of making a James Bond movie. All that, and so much more.
