“The Hunger Games” star Amandla Stenberg,14,  poses for V Magazine’s upcoming “Youthquake” issue. The young actress was among the many stars to be photographed by legendary megastar Drew Barrymore for the fun magazine spread.

In the issue, Amandla talks about landing a role in film The Hunger Games. “When my agent called to tell me I was going to play Rue, I literally started running around the room and hyperventilating. I kept shouting, ‘I’m Rue, I’m Rue!’” she says. “My mother had to get me a glass of water and tell me to take deep breaths. We have it all on tape. It’s funny to watch.”

Also featured in the issue is Victoria Justice, Nicole Laliberte, Isabelle Fuhrman, Maika Monroe, Taissa Farmiga, and Haley Bennett.

Usher Raymond wants to be the father that he never had. He recently told Robin Roberts of ABC News that “a father is important in a child’s life. No one knows your child like you do. And it is taking the time to actively be there. It’s a day in, day out process. I’m actively doing it every day that I possibly can, and being the father to them that my father was unable to be to me,” said the singer.

Although he is currently in a custody battle with ex-wife Tameka Raymond, Usher believes that having full guardianship over his children will allow him to mold them into positive society contributors. “To have the time that I’ve had with them has made them the young men that they are,” says Raymond. “I want to raise them to be responsible future adults.”

When not singing or spending time with his kids, the R&B crooner mentors troubled teens through his New Look Foundation.

“Why it’s so important for me to serve and why I have so much fun,” Harris said, “is because I know what service did for me. And I know and recognize that I would not be where I am today without someone reaching back their hand to me.”

Usher and Tameka are parents to Naviyd,3, and Usher V,4. The couple divorced in 2009 after two years of marriage.
