LCteenvoguenov.jpgLauren Conrad graces the cover of Teen Vogue’s November 2010 issue, and while we love her pretty pictures, she comes off as a bit grumpy and ungrateful in the interview!

On making a name for herself as a designer, LC says, “I’ve sacrificed and worked very hard to get where I am now. So whereas someone just getting out of fashion school may have to struggle for years to have the opportunity to start a clothing line, I’ve been working every single day since I was seventeen toward this. I’m also faced with different challenges. I go into meetings, and people have this preconceived notion of me that I didn’t work hard to get where I am.”

So what about the fame she's gotten from being a reality television star? Lauren complains about photographers, grumbling, "They literally zoom in on your cellulite. It's brutal. I have a beach at home in Laguna that's private, so that’s my bikini time." Lauren continued, "I watch a little reality now, and while I know it's been partially ruined for me because I've been through the process, I think the format has become too beautiful and perfect. It doesn't look or feel real anymore."

How will her new reality show be any different from The Hills? "One of the inspirations for this show is The September Issue. It's going to be filmed more like a documentary ... It’s going to be very different. I’m doing it on my own terms now. I get final editing approval. That was the only way I would agree to do it.”

When asked about leaving The Hills, Lauren said, "I left right before I went crazy," and even weighed in on Heidi Montag’s plastic surgery and Jason Wahler’s decision to join Celebrity Rehab. “They’ve moved on to a different life now," she says. "Being on a show like that is a lot more than people think. You’re thrust into the spotlight. There’s all this pressure to act a certain way. It’s hard to adjust. You have to decide early on whether or not you’re willing to do that.”

Oh Lauren, your life sounds SO difficult.
