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 month, Kylie Minogue released a music video for her new single Flower which is taken from her forthcoming new album The Abbey Road Sessions. As you may know, The Abbey Road Sessions is an album of Kylie songs that have been re-imagined and re-arranged with an orchestra. We’re gonna hafta wait until November 6 to hear the album in full but check out the video above to hear short snippets of all 16 songs included on The Abbey Road Sessions. Based on the snippets, I think the new version of Better the Devil You Know is my fave. I cannot WAIT to hear the album in full :D
Last month we got to see the first movie poster release for the forthcoming big screen adaptation of Les Misérables. Today, we get to see the first of the character posters for the film. Hugh Jackman stars as Jean Valjean in this new version of Les Miz and as you can see below, he is the only featured character on this new poster. Check it out. More »
Jack White‘s videos are always an experience and this new one for I’m Shakin’ doesn’t disappoint. During the summer I fell in luuuurve with his Freedom At 21 video and the video went on to win the coveted PITNB Pinkie for Best Visual Re-Introduction To Jack White For A Hip-Hop Head. I’m Shakin is another crazy fun song; it has a rockin’ 60s vibe and the concept for the video is really cool. Jack White is up against… Jack White in a battle of the bands like no other. I know we have a few Jack White fans on PITNB; what do y’all think of the new visuals? I kind of love everything he does (newbie fan that I am)! I’m Shakin’ is the latest single off Jack‘s critically-acclaimed debut solo effort, Blunderbuss.

Late last month Rihanna released the single Diamonds, the first from her then-untitled 7th album (due out next month). Today, Rihanna finally reveals the title of her new album along with the cover artwork for the album. Rihanna announced today on her official Twitter profile that her new album is titled Unapologetic … which, I gotta say, seems like a very aptly titled album (considering the questionable choices she’s been making lately). As you can see below, the album art features a topless Rihanna covered in only the titles of the songs featured on her new album. Check out the cover art below and see what you think. More »

A little while back we had an interesting discussion about the fashion industry, supermodels, photoshopping and body image. Karlie Kloss was the focus of our conversation, but PITNBR PeaButNutter was kind enough to point us all in the direction of the incomparable Robyn Lawley. Robyn graced the cover of Vogue in one of my favorite fashion shoots of all time, and I was so excited to see Robyn getting all sandy and sexified for this Cosmopolitan Australia swimsuit spread. Robyn was photographed for their November issue in the gorgeous Cook Islands’ Aitutaki Lagoon, and she’s rocking some amazing pieces that will make you long for summer… or a life on the Blue Lagoon. Or both. Peep the gallery for more! How ridiculously good does this woman look?
Newly-married actress Anne Hathaway has been bringing her general awesomeness to the big screen for a while now. And she clearly plans to keep that up, which means more happy times for us at the movies! After her brilliant performance as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, we got to see the amazing trailer for Les Misérables along with some behind-the-scenes footage. And now we’re getting reports about an upcoming movie written by Mindy Kaling who is kind of a genius when it comes writing scripts (see The Office and The Mindy Project). Mindy and Anne are easily two of my fave people in Hollyweird so this is just awesome news! Click inside to learn more!
The Lifetime channel is gearing up for the premiere of their new reality show The Houstons On Our Own, and the show will follow members of Whitney Houston‘s family as they grieve, cope, and live their lives following the death of the singer and mother. In a new trailer, exclusively released to E! Bobbi Kristina is the central focus and she announces her engagement to Nick Gordon. The last time we heard from Bobbi and Nick they were professing their lurve on Twitter, and now it seems the two are headed for the altar. Maybe. Click inside to learn more.
In spite of all the fighting that was going on backstage, the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards actually brought me much pleasure. First of all Missy effing Elliot performed!!! And the cyphers brought back some of my favorite rappers of all time and by ‘some of my favorite rappers of all time’ I mean DMX. Sigh. And shouts-out to PITNBR Erica Croce. We may have shared a few good laughs at DMX recently (lmao) but he actually was in rare form, and sounded like a good rapper who is totally not struggling with drug problems, so that was a relief. DMX and E-V-E rounded out the so-called Ruff Ryders reunion (really, they were the only two Ruff Ryders there) and I was so, so excited to hear from Eve! Soon after the awards aired Eve released this new single She Bad Bad, and although it’s not her best work (lyrics are a bit lackluster, though the hook is awesome), I’m just reveling in the fact that Eve is back! Now if we can just get her back in the studio with Missy, the rap game might get some of that feminine fire back. No beef with Nicki, but we need some options here! Check out the song above. You likey? If not, you likey the return of Eve?
