Happy Day, 'Liz & Dick' Is Out on DVD!
Last November Lifetime TV premiered the amazing (ly bad) made for TV biopic movie Liz & Dick which starred Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler as Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Today, Entertainment One is releasing Liz & Dick on DVD! This is happy news, I think. Even tho folks seemed to dislike (strongly) Liz & Dick when it was released last Fall, I think people may end up liking it a lot more in retrospect … because it was a pretty bad movie. To promote the DVD release of Liz & Dick, new interview footage of Lindsay on set has been released … click the embed above to watch Lindsay talk about her love of jewelry as well as her almost close-by-not-at-all relationship with Liz Taylor. I don’t know about you but I think I’m gonna hafta pick up a copy of this Liz & Dick DVD. Methinks there is a strong probability that the film might live on and achieve cult classic status. C’mon, admit it … don’t you wish you could give the made for TV movie another watch?

ZZ Talks Growing Up 'Blues' With Pink Is The New Blog
Earlier this year I began falling in love with Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar, and I was lucky enough to have one of our music-savvy readers point me in the direction of a song Kendrick had with ZZ Ward. PITNBR Jess officially put me on to the bluesy, hip-hop, bone-chilling amazingness that is Cryin’ Wolf and voila! Another ZZ Ward fan was immediately born (in me, lol). Since her debut album Til The Casket Drops was released back in October, ZZ‘s been compared to artists like Joss Stone and Duffy, but I can safely say that I’ve never heard anything like her. But I get the comparisons. I mean, it’s sorta like Joss Stone had a baby girl with Adele, and that baby grew up and listened to a lot of Lauryn Hill, and Nas, and Odd Future, and Earth Wind and Fire. And then that baby girl made ‘Til The Casket Drops, lol. Anyway, I love this album and I still cannot believe I actually got to chat with such an amazing talent. Click inside to read our exclusive interview with an artist who truly is the next big thing– ZZ Ward!

Last night I made my way to Central SAPC in Santa Monica, CA to see my girl Hustle Roses perform her first solo concert ever! As you may recall, I was able to preview last night’s show when I went to her rehearsal last Saturday night and at that time, I knew she was ready for her show. What I saw last night just blew me AWAY! I was impressed during rehearsals, I was absolutely wowed during last night’s live performance. I snapped some photos and shot some video, which you can check out below. More »

Yesterday afternoon I made my way back home to LA from Detroit and managed to make the trek without incident. I did get bumped from my first class upgrade because Selma Blair was on my flight and she purchased a second first class seat for her baby Arthur. Yes, I got cock blocked by a baby. As if he knew I was grousing about getting bumped, Selma let Arthur walk up and down the aisle and he stopped at my seat to say Hi to me. Selma seemed very proud that her son was getting to know everyone so, I guess I couldn’t be too mad ;) The flight was on time and I landed in a beautifully sunny and warm LA. More »

VERY Easy On The Eyes And Ears
Something tells me that you woke up today feeling some 90s nostalgia. In fact, it’s Monday, so I know you did. Well, y’all know I always have a cure for the Mondays… and the good news about up-and-coming pop/rock group Broken Anchor is that you can listen to them any day of the week. Today just happens to be the exclusive PITNB debut of their official video (featuring a completely awesome cameo from Rachael Leigh Cook) for their cover of the unforgettable 1997 Harvey Danger hit, Flagpole Sitta. I’ve seriously been listening to this song since the day it was sent over to me, wishing like hell that I could sing… and that I had an acoustic guitar. And that it was 1997 or 1998 (either or). But luckily for us, Harley-Leonard (one half of Broken Anchor) can sing, and his voice is, like, rugged ethereal on this track. It’s glorious. Peep the video above and click inside to learn more about Broken Anchor! Y’all know I love finding and sharing sweet new music and good covers; Broken Anchor definitely fits the bill. How much do you love this cover?! Anybody else crying yet? No? Just me? That’s cool.

Last night David and I made our way downtown to the Staples Center to see Madonna LIVE in concert for her MDNA World Tour. As you may recall, I was able to see the show last weekend in San Jose, CA but last night’s show was David’s first time seeing Maddy this tour. We were able to partake of the food and drink available to us at the pre-show party before we made our way to our seats. We had a great time! I loved the show so much the first time that I knew I’d have a blast. Click below to see some photos from last night’s fun, check out video of Madonna performing Holiday and meet the Pink readers that I got to meet at the show last night. More »

Last night, for the first time ever, I got to see Jakob Dylan‘s band The Wallflowers LIVE in concert here in LA. I’ve been a fan of the band since their debut album came out in 1996 … like many other people, I was seduced by the band’s biggest hit single One Headlight. I can’t say I’ve been the biggest fan of The Wallflowers but I really enjoyed their music … when they were putting it out. After the band broke up and Dylan went solo, I kind of just lost interest. I was very happy to learn that The Wallflowers reunited to make a new album together and KNEW I had to see them in concert when they announced a reunion tour. Their show at The Fonda Theatre last night was exactly what I was hoping it would be … a time capsule back to 1996 :D More »

OMG … let me tell you how freaking AMAZING yesterday was for me. As I mentioned before, my dear friend Emma and I made our way to San Francisco, CA this weekend for the express purpose of seeing Madonna perform live in concert in San Jose, CA. While we have been having a blast her in SF, it was all about the Madonna show last night. After many months of hearing about the show, I finally got to see The MDNA World Tour LIVE in person for myself. I thought I was ready … but I was not. The show BLEW MY MIND. Hands down it is one of Madonna‘s best live shows of all time and is certainly her best live show in years. BUT, I’ll get to all of that later in the post. The rest of my day here in the Bay area was pretty sweet, too. Click below to see some photos from my really fantastic day yesterday. More »

Last night Darion and I couldn’t resist seeing Garbage perform LIVE just one more time after seeing them put on a killer show at the Hollywood Palladium on Tuesday night. Garbage was the musical gust on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and we were able to attend the show’s taping. For the show, Garbage performed two songs (Control and Blood for Poppies), both from their new album Not Your Kind of People. When the camera’s stopped rolling, the band performed 3 more songs (Stupid Girl, Cherry Lips and Only Happy When It Rains) for those of us in attendance last night.
