Lauren Conrad sounds off on paparazzi, ex boyfriends, and her new book, The Fame Game, in Glamour's Swimsuit Issue, on newsstands now. (P.S. We are loving that the Laguna Beach native is on the cover because not only does she have great style, but she always has the cutest bathing suits. The girl practically grew up in a bathing suit!) Here are a few highlights from the article:
On how tough paparazzi can be: On [a recent] vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually, I'm just petrified. A couple of years ago, someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven't worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that.
On being newly single: It's nice to not feel like I'm prioritizing work over someone else... It's terrible, that nagging feeling that you're not paying enough attention to someone. Now I'm just able to focus on everything I'm doing. All of my girlfriends are single right now too, so we've been having fun.
On media reports of Lauren always dating someone new: I wish I dated as much as people thought I did! It's really funny because almost everyone that I'm reportedly "dating" is a friend of mine. About half of my friends are guys, and I've always gotten along really well with guys. You just have to laugh at it.
On staying grounded: For me, the best way to stay grounded is to surround myself with friends and family who knew me way back when. There's nothing like cleaning my mom's dishes or taking out the trash to remind me that I'm no different than anyone else.
