Our Dear Britney Spears and co.
For my last Britney Spears post here on Pink is the new Blog, I was really hoping that our dear Britney Spears might drop a surprise album or reunite with an alternate universe Justin Timberlake or something like that but no … there’s nothing quite that grand to blog about. On Sunday, tho, Britney and her older brother Bryan Spears took their children on a family trip to Universal Studios Hollywood for a family Sunday Funday together … and they shared fun photos and video from their visit. Britney brought her sons, Sean Preston & Jayden James, and Bryan brought his daughter Lexie to the amusement park for this fun family outing which, altho isn’t major news, is just the kind of thing I LOVE blogging about here on PITNB.

'Oh No (I'll Never Fall In Love Again)'
Back in March we honored the sad occasion of the 20th anniversary of the murder of Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla-Pérez and today we learn of the existence of a previously unreleased, unheard Selena song. Quintanilla‘s father Abraham gave an interview where he revealed that the unreleased song Oh No (I’ll Never Fall In Love Again) was never professionally recorded but was taped during a rehearsal session for the song and, therefore, isn’t up to par for official release … but after Selena‘s brother A.B. and the Kumbia Kingz recorded music for the track, he decided to release the song online for fans to enjoy. Click below to hear Oh No in full and get a taste of what could’ve been had Selena lived to make more music. More »
You have to see the cute video below!
Our dear Britney Spears threw a joint birthday party for her sons Sean Preston (10) and Jayden James (9) over the weekend and she graciously shared a few photos from the event so that the rest of us could partake in their family fun. As you may know, Britney‘s boys have become quite enamored of skateboarding in the past year so it’s no big surprise that her sons wanted a skateboard-themed party at Skatelab skate park in Simi Valley, CA. Britney shared photos from Sean P. and JJ‘s birthday party on her official Twitter profile and shared THE CUTEST video of the 3 of them riding in the car on her official Facebook profile. Click below to have a look and let’s help Britney celebrate the birth of her precious sons. More »
Reports of her 'AHS' retirement
have been greatly exaggerated are complete b.s.
Back in October of 2013, Jessica Lange revealed to the world her desire to “retire” from acting and give up her lead role on the FX drama American Horror Story. Then, we learned out that her retirement from acting wouldn’t be absolute, that she would take on acting roles that appealed to her from time to time. Then, we found out that Jessica has teamed up with AHS creator Ryan Murphy for a Broadway show. Then, we found out that Jessica has decided to remain open to appearing on AHS again. Today we learn that she will definitely be appearing in the new season of the show, American Horror Story: Hotel. The official Facebook page for the show made the announcement that Lange will be “checking in” this season … which really means that she never really retired from the show after all. More »
They were joined by Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman and others
A couple of weeks ago, we saw photos of actor Chadwick Boseman in character as Black Panther on the set of the forthcoming superhero sequel film Captain America: Civil War. Today we learn that principal filming has wrapped on the production of Civil War as evidenced by a wrap party that was held in Leipzig, Germany this weekend attended by some of the film’s stars. As you can see below, actors Chris Evans (Captain America), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) and Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) partied with some of the members of the film crew — and apparently Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), even tho she isn’t featured in any of the photos. Click below to get a look at how much fun the cast and crew of Civil War had as they celebrated together the end of filming of their new movie. More »
Power in Social Media
Last night I was up late and was saddened to see that after an entire day of peaceful marching and gathering (which I’m sure received little news coverage), the Mike Brown one-year memorial protest ended with an 18 year-old boy getting shot by the police. He’s now in critical condition and has been accused of shooting at the police (you can understand why I’m not ready to report this as truth). Black Twitter has been my go-to for so many of these stories—Sandra Bland, Sam DuBose, Christian Taylor—all stories I learned about first online. The New York Times asked [social] activists DeRay McKesson, Johnetta Elzie and Zellie Imani to read some of their tweets and reflect back on the year since Ferguson.
And this: “Everybody want me to be calm—do you know how them bullets hit my son? What they did to his body as they entered his body?”
"God is on the scene today~don't play with me!"
Last weekend, we learned the disturbing yet not at all surprising news that Bobby Brown‘s sister Leolah Brown was ejected from Bobbi Kristina‘s funeral after she made an outburst and disrupted the service when Pat Houston gave her eulogy. Clearly, Leolah is no fan of Pat and her latest post on Facebook is proof positive. Leolah has posted a few things on FB that are not at all complimentary of Pat Houston in an effort, she says, to refute the “garbage that evidently is being fed” to the media. Click below to read Leolah‘s FB rant against Pat Houston see for yourselves why the Brown family continues to be the absolute worst family ever. More »
"The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.”
Earlier today we learned the sad news that Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only child of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, passed away at the age of 22 as a result of the drowning incident that rendered her comatose back in January. In the wake of the tragic news of her passing, the late Whitney Houston‘s official Facebook page has paid tribute to Bobbi Kristina‘s memory with a sweet photo of Whitney and Bobbi as a child. Additionally, we learn that BK‘s pseudo brother-turned-fiancée Nick Gordon is “devastated” by the news of her death and that an autopsy has been ordered to formally determine her cause of death. Due to the possible criminal investigation that was opened earlier this year into BK‘s accident, the case has now been deemed a homicide investigation. Bobbi Kirstina may be finally at rest but the investigation into her death (and the inevitable drama it will inspire) is just getting started. More »
"Hats off to some intrepid fans who figured out the title"
Earlier this month, director James Gunn shared the first page of the script for the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel but at the time, he did very little to provide any real information about the film. The photo he shared on Twitter cut off the full title of the movie … as a way to keep it a secret. BUT, a number of very astute fans managed to figure out the Guardians sequel title and earlier today, Gunn confirmed that guesswork and formally announced the movie title. The 2nd Guardians of the Galaxy movie is coming … and it will be titled … More »
