Man, I love Pink. She’s one of those pop stars that’s completely low key, seemingly down-to-earth and effortlessly cool in the face of so many contrived wannabes. Oh, and she makes some pretty solid pop tunes that are emotionally raw, quirky and sometimes downright funny. Bottom line: Pink is great and always will be.
In a new interview with Redbook, the singer discussed her unconventional path to stardom, as well as her less than mainstream looks, which she’s refused to let hold her back regardless of what industry standards might say:
“A ‘girl like me’ is someone who doesn’t rest on her looks, who has had people tell me from day one, ‘You’re never going to get magazine covers because you are not pretty enough.’ I’m totally comfortable with that.
“I know my strong points: I work hard, I have talent, I’m funny and I’m a good person. Beautiful has never been my goal,” she says. “Joy is my goal – to feel healthy and strong and powerful and useful and engaged and intelligent and in love. It’s about joy. And there’s such joy now.”

This is Pink, performing at the Jingle Bell Ball last night at the O2 arena in London, and all I have to say is “damn.” And not “damn” in a “that is one hot ass” way, because while the ass in question is probably perfectly lovely, being squished into a harness and dangled like a side of beef is never an attractive look, and especially when it makes the ass in question look like Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ass, circa whatever:
Nope, not a good look at all. I mean, honestly. In what universe is that ^^ considered hot? Oh, the Mr. Universe competition? Well OK, that’s fine. But unless Pink is hoping to clench—I mean, clinch—a spot as a multinational bodybuilder extraordinaire, then maybe, just maybe, she’ll lay off the harnesses and all of the protein shakes. Girl’s got such a delightful figure as it is—there’s no reason to get all musclehead on us.

We just talked about Emma Stone’s big life-changing event at the age of fourteen, and now we’re moving on to what Pink was doing between the ages of twelve and fourteen, too. From a recent interview, Pink talking about how she overdosed at fourteen, which stopped her drug use altogether:
“I understand addiction. I was a hardcore partier from 12 to 15. [I was] on all the club drugs [and] selling Ecstasy and crystal meth and Special K. I overdosed in ’95, and then I never took drugs again, ever.”
Man. I just cannot even wrap my head around this. Yeah, I knew of people around that age that were into drugs and what not, but back then, it was like it wasn’t even real. It was the stuff of movies, and of Johnny Depp “This is your brain on drugs” commercials. Granted, you could ask all of my childhood friends, most of which I’m still pretty close with—growing up in my family was like growing up with the Brady Bunch, no lie. And for that, I consider myself terribly, terribly lucky and blessed, because there could have been horrible, awful things that I could have endured (like what Emma Stone went through, or, much, much worse, what Pink went through), but I didn’t. And maybe that’s why I still kind of can’t even fathom things like this happening. Maybe I had my rose-colored glasses on ’til I hit eighteen, and anything prior to that was just a veritable garden of good-natured wholesomeness.
So, so glad that Pink was able to turn her life around and make a successful go at living, because there’s so many sad cases in which that just doesn’t happen.
Good on you, girl.

Hey, did you hear? Pink is the new face ambassador for Cover Girl! That’s right, Pink (real name: Alecia Beth Moore, homegrown from the Philadelphia area, not far from where I grew up myself) is joining the ranks of chicks like Tyra Banks, Molly Sims, Faith Hill, Queen Latifah, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Drew Barrymore, just to name a few. And what prestige! Do you guys remember this commercial? Even a little bit, maybe?:
Because come on! Cover Girl’s been on the scene for ages! And now Pink’s their timely representative! Yeah, girl!
The best part about it is that Pink is just looking amazing, and confident, and she knows it. Here’s another shot in case you didn’t already think that Pink is just f-cking amazing-looking:
I mean, yeah. Her music’s not all that wonderful (it’s, at the very least, not my cup of tea), but she’s got a massive personality to make up for that fact. Plus, her sweet little family and adorable little baby. Girl is working it these days.
What do you guys think about Pink’s look?

Guess who’s still a total darling! Well, if the headline was any indication, you’d probably be thinking, “Ooh, ooh, I know; it’s Pink!” and I’m here to tell you that you’d be a thousand percent right!
Pink sat down with Philadelphia’s Q102 radio station the other day and talked about leaving whiskey and cigarettes behind in order to party with her new daughter, Willow Sage. Pink talks about how, when she tours, the family stays all together in a hotel room (which is probably the most darling thing of all—that Pink and Carey Hart bring their daughter on tour stops and take care of her themselves, not leaving the daunting task up to any damn old nannies), and how motherhood has changed the sound of her music. From Q102, the most charming video you’ll see today:
If you couldn’t check the video out, here’s a nice little summary, courtesy of People:
Explaining that it’s “so much cooler” adding daughter Willow Sage to her and hubby Carey Hart‘s travel group, the pop singer, 32,told Philadelphia’s Q102 radio station on Wednesday, “We wake up and dance. [We] party naked in the hotel room.”
But she goes on to say that late nights with her little one in tow aren’t quite the same as the ones had when it was just with Hart, 36.
“It’s a different kind of partying,” Pink says, of what now consists of “diapers and underwear.”
Dropping her raging rituals included kicking her vices to the curb.
“It used to be whiskey, tears and cigarettes,” she says. “Now it’s [my baby's] kind of tears, no cigarettes and the color of poop. Pure joy. I miss the whiskey, not the cigarettes.”
The “Raise Your Glass” singer’s new upbeat, healthier outlook on life will be reflected in her new album, The Truth About Love, slated to drop in September.
“I do a lot of dancing now with [Willow] and I’m just happier,” she says. “This album is a lot of rock and roll but it reflects that there’s a dance party in our house … Your career goes up and down, but … at the end of the day, if I didn’t do another thing, I’m blessed. I like myself more than I used to.”
Come on. Adorable, right? Doesn’t Pink seem like one of the sweetest, most down-to-earth moms in Hollywood ever?

Of course you want to see the puppy, don’t be ridiculous. Look at its little face! Those ears! Those big puppy paws!
This is Stella, one of the most adorable puppies ever. If you’ll remember, yesterday I told you about her and about how Pink paid the $5,000 it took to get this puppy surgery that saved her life. And honestly, after hearing that awful story and seeing that precious face, how could you not help this puppy if you had the means to do so?
Enjoy the puppy pictures, and feel free to post other pictures of cute animals as you see fit!
