Travis Barker Is Back Up & Around

Spends time with his daughter in SoCal

Yesterday we got to see new photos of DJ Adam AM Goldstein back to work at his weekly DJ gig in Las Vegas, NV and today we get to see new photos of Travis Barker out and about spending time with his daughter Alabama Luella. You may recall that both men survived a deadly plane crash in South Carolina last month and each underwent extensive surgeries in their recovery processes. It’s a happy day seeing these new pics of Travis back on his feet and lookin’ so well so soon after his tragic accident:


I still find it very amazing that not only are both DJ AM and Travis Barker already out of the hospital but that they are both back up and around as well! Yesterday we saw pics of AM back to doing what he loves to do and today we get to see Travis enjoying time with someone that he loves so much. I am just thrilled that both men are doing so well. I wish them both a quick road to full recovery … heal well, guys!

Michael Jackson Surfaces For A Day Of Shopping

A-spending he will go

Everyone’s favorite self-proclaimed King of Pop Michael Jackson surfaced here in LA yesterday afternoon where he was snapped enjoying a pretty full day of shopping around town. Jacko left the kiddies at home this time so that they wouldn’t get in the way of his retail jaunts in pursuit of cosmetics, antiques and toys … natch. Here are a few pics from Jackson’s day yesterday:


Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, stopped at a Robertson Boulevard boutique to shop, but for what? And if you want to know where else Jacko spent his day, read on … He was at Off the Wall, the West Hollywood antique store that bears the same name as his 1979 album. An inside source tells E! News that the rarely seen star bought a Pan Am aluminum cast model airplane. The source says Michael was looking around at other items but only purchased the plane. “It was a little difficult because people were pounding on doors and windows…so he was in and out pretty quick,” an eyewitness tells E! News. “The paparazzi were in hot pursuit of him.” Despite the chaos going on outside, the source said Michael didn’t seem worried. “He was great,” says the source.

Jacko may be an odd bird but I have no doubt that he relishes the attention that he is still able to garner from the media. I understand that he even took the time to crack the window of his car so that he could shake fingers with fans that pressed up against his vehicle. I dunno why anyone would want to do that but … there you have it. In other Jackson news, it was reported earlier this week that he has angered some folks in Las Vegas, NV by buying a new home directly across the street from an elementary school. Is he just interested in making sure that his own kids won’t have to walk for to attend school or is there really cause for concern?

The star, 50, reportedly lives just metres from the school which takes pupils aged four to 13. Jackson was cleared of child abuse in 2005 but, despite this, parents of the 600 children at the school have complained about his choice of residence. One parent told The Sun newspaper: “Some parents say they don’t want their children near Jacko. They say he can see the kids getting on the school bus from his house.” Jackson moved back to Las Vegas last year with his children Prince Michael, 11, Paris, 10, and Prince Michael II, 6. According to the newspaper, Jackson is being put up by casino owner Steve Wynn who is trying to persuade the shy star to appear in a comeback show. Those who live in the area say that the superstar has not been to the school and keeps a low profile, surrounded by a team of bodyguards. Since the star moved, fans have been congregating outside the gates of his Spanish-style villa. A school spokesman refused to comment.

I mean … Jacko is kinda supercreepy but I really don’t know that there is any cause for concern. I dunno … I guess I can see how some parents might be worried. What do y’all think? Would you have a problem with Michael Jackson living in a home directly across the street from a school where your children attended?

Guy Ritchie’s Night Out With The Boys

Pals around with RDJ and the Jude'stache

Guy Ritchie may be going thru a rough patch right now since it was announced that he and soon-to-be ex-wife Madonna have decided to divorce after 7 1/2 years of marriage … but you wouldn’t know it to look at him out on the town last night. Guy stepped out for a guys night of fun with his friends Robert Downey, Jr. and Jude Law (who star as Sherlock Holmes and Watson respectively in Ritchie‘s new Sherlock Holmes movie) and the men looked like they were itchin’ to have some fun and mebbe get into a little trubs together:


Newly single Guy Ritchie was all smiles last night as he enjoyed his first night out since his split from Madonna. Director Ritchie, 40, was joined by actors Jude law and Robert Downey Jr for a trip to a private viewing of artist friend Sam Taylor Wood’s new exhibition at the White Cube gallery in London. The three had spent the day filming on location in London for Ritchie’s latest movie Sherlock Holmes, in which Law and Downey star. After a meeting at Ritchie’s London offices they then headed straight out to the gallery … And while his divorce has sparked a media frenzy Ritchie appeared to simply want to relax last night, refusing to comment on rumours surrounding the split.

HA! I love it! They look like a band of miscreant troublemakers. I have no doubt that once Guy is totally split with Madge (ie. once the paperwork is signed, sealed and delivered) he is going to get right back on the horse and dive back into the single life. If he keeps hanging around with these guys, I think Mr. Ritchie will have no problems finding new trouble to get into. By utilizing the power of RDJ‘s charms and the sexy prowess of the Jude’stache, this band of brothers could do some serious damage. I’m glad to see that Guy is able to depend on his bros in his time of need. I look forward to hopefully following their coming misadventures. I mean … seriously … can you imagine how much hawt trouble these three could get into? I mean the drunken nights alone together … Woot! ;)

Britney Spears Takes Her Sons Pumpkin Picking

A time honored tradition

Britney Spears, after picking up her sons from pre-school, took her children Sean Preston and Jayden James for an afternoon of fun at the Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in Beverly Hills, CA yesterday to enjoy some family fun together. You may recall that Mr. Bones is ground zero for Hollywood celebs and their children to pick out their annual Halloween pumpkins and yesterday Brit Brit and her boys got in on the action. Here are a few pics of her pre-school pick-up and their visit to the pumpkin patch yesterday, including one photo that was posted on Brit‘s official website:



Britney wanted us to get these exclusive pictures up for you guys right away! She just sent them and they’re amazing pics of Britney with Sean Preston and Jayden James at a pumpkin patch. Britney tells us that the boys jumped on the “jumpin pumpkin” trampoline while she watched and laughed from the doorway. They all had a blast! Of course the paps were everywhere, including one who was hiding in a tree (he looks a lot like the big rabbit on the pumpkin next to him!). After finding the perfect pumpkins, Brit and the boys headed back home — where I am sure they are making some awesome jack-o-lanterns! Thanks for the photos, Britney! They’re so cute!

Awww … so cute! I am really diggin’ these regular updates and photo exclusives from BritneySpears.com. I must admit, I didn’t really believe their claim that they would be offering insider updates on a regular basis because the same promises were made by previous official Britney websites with updates being released very few and far between. Since BritneySpears.com went online last week, we’ve already been treated to some great info (like news that she would be appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and has begun work on a new dance routine for an as-yet unknown live performance or music video) and it looks like the updates will continue to come. Some might scoff that Britney is offering so much insider info (when she should be staying as private as possible) but it appears that she is well aware that her every move is chronicled anyway, so she might as well have control over of how some of the info is released to the public. She just keeps on, keepin’ on … and I’m glad that we’re allowed to be along for the ride.

Carrie Underwood Gets A Wax Job

Cuz the world needs another celebrity wax statue

Carrie Underwood is the latest celeb to have her likeness made into a wax statue for display at Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum … unfortch for Carrie, tho, her statue was not made by the London branch of Madam Tussaud’s (which is known for their expertly flawless recreations) and was instead made by the folks at the Las Vegas, NV branch of the museum … which may explain by Carrie‘s statue looks like it has Céline Dion‘s face … EW!


Carrie was a good sport to show up for the unveiling of her wax likeness but if I were her, I’d sue. Carrie Underwood looks far prettier than her waxen doppelgänger … especially in these pics.

Who Is Sasha Fierce?

The truth is out there

For a few weeks now, we have seen messages popping up in advertising on posters, billboards and on websites (including right here on Pink is the new Blog) asking the question Who Is Sasha Fierce? Well, at long last, we finally have the answer. [Drum roll, please] It turns out that Sasha Fierce is none other than Beyoncé Knowles herself. Of course, anyone familiar with Beyoncé and her alter-ego nonsense knows that B has been, at times, calling herself Sasha for many months now … but at least now, we know her last name. Here are a couple pics of Beyoncé or Sasha Fierce (not sure which) making her way out of Cipriani restaurant in NYC with her husband Jay-Z last night:


The R&B singer has christened herself “Sasha Fierce” for her new double album, “I Am … Sasha Fierce,” due in stores on Nov. 18, and has released a lengthy justification for the comical moniker. “I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am,” the former Destiny’s Child frontwoman said in a statement. “Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.” Additionally, she has set up a cryptic MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/sashafierce) that gives a “lucky person” the opportunity to receive a personal message and a gift bag valued at $500.

So … lemme get this straight. Beyoncé created an alter-ego to draw attention away to “protect herself” and is now telling anyone who will listen (and offering a cash prize to anyone interested in giving a damn) that the alter-ego is actually her. Clearly, Beyoncé would make an horrrrrrible superhero cuz she just can’t keep a secret. As you may recall, Beyoncé released 2 music videos recently … and one of them features Ms. Sasha Fierce. Methinks Mrs. Jay-Z has got way too much time on her hands.

Guess Who’s Got Some Fugly Shoes

Can you guess which diva chanteuse was spotted rockin’ a pair of hideously overwrought shoes while performing in concert while on world tour in her home country?

’90210’: The T-Shirts

Make way for the merchandising

A few castmembers from the new CW series 90210 made their way out to the Kitson boutique in West Hollywood, CA last night for the red carpet launch of a new line of t-shirts that promote the show. Back in the early ’90′s, Beverly Hills, 90210 spawned a crush of merchandising options (from frisbees to dolls to perfume) and it looks like the new gang at West Beverly High are trying to get in on that action with a new line of stuff of their own. Here are a few pics from the red carpet arrivals at last night’s in-store launch event at Kitson:


I don’t personally think that the new batch of 90210 stuff is gonna be as popular as their predecessor’s merchandise but I can’t blame them for striking while the iron is hot. I think they might want to come up with better shirt slogans than Lacrosse Players Do It Better but the Team Silver and Team Naomi shirts are cute, if not inventive. If YOU are interested in procuring these 90210-themed t-shirts you can pop in to Kitson on Robertson Blvd. or order them online HERE. Never fear old skoolers, they’ve got a couple faux vintage BH, 90210 designs as well.

DJ AM Gets Back To Work

Adam Goldstein seems to be recovering nicely

Superstar DJ Adam AM Goldstein returned to his weekly club residency at Pure nightclub in Las Vegas, NV this week just about a month after surviving a fatal plane crash in South Carolina. As y’all know, DJ AM and Travis Barker were the only survivors of a private plane crash that claimed the lives of 4 people. In the weeks since the accident, both AM and Barker underwent various surgeries and have each been released from the hospital. Clearly, AM is recovering nicely since he is, once again, able to get behind the DJ decks and resume his weekly nightclub residency in Vegas. Here are a few pics of the very happy DJ doing his thang Tuesday night:


ADAM ‘DJ AM’ GOLDSTEIN has returned to the turntables at Las Vegas’ PURE nightclub a month after he was almost burned alive in a plane crash tragedy. The Los Angeles-based music man has a Tuesday night residency at PURE, but he has been unable to make the weekly trip to Sin City since his near-death experience on 19 September, which left four people dead. He returned on Tuesday. Goldstein made a triumphant return to DJ-ing last week when he performed as support to rap mogul Jay-Z at Hollywood’s Palladium.

I gotta tells y’all … it’s a mighty awesome sight seeing DJ AM back behind the decks doing what he does so well. It is really amazing that both he and Travis Barker managed to survive such a horrible experience and I’m sure both men are happy to have a “second chance at life”. I imagine that neither man is interested in taking anything for granted any longer. I’m very happy to see that DJ AM is back to work already so soon after his accident. Welcome back, AM! We’ve missed you :)
