Pink Is The NEWER Blog

Hey y’all, what’s new? Oh yeah … THIS ENTIRE BLOG is new … well newer, at least. Yes, the big secret project that I’ve been hinting at for months now is finally ready for publication. For the past year, almost, a talented team of developers have been working on this new redesign of the site. The plan was to go live with the redesign right around the time that Shannon started writing for the site but with an overabundance of caution, we decided to make sure that everything on the technical inside of the site was working properly. A day has dawned for Pink is the new Blog, welcome aboard! More »

Katherine Jackson Finally Speaks Out On Family Drama In An ABC News Exclusive

I was beginning to think we’d never hear from the woman herself, but Katherine Jackson, the matriarch of The Jackson family has finally broken her silence about the recent, troubling goings-on in her family. Yesterday we saw video surveillance footage of a dispute between Janet Jackson and her niece Paris, and we also learned that Katherine Jackson‘s guardianship over her grandchildren (Paris, Prince and Blanket) was revoked.

Rita Ora Covers ‘Complex’ Magazine

UK sensation and RocNation recording artist Rita Ora has been compared to Rihanna for plenty of good reasons. Stylistically they’re similar, and they both draw on an eclectic mix of pop, rock, hip-hop, and R&B in their music. But for me, the comparison comes in my reaction to their photos. They both have the ability to render me completely jealous, like, to an unhealthy point. Ya’ll have seen me go through it with RiRi‘s twit pics, and now here I am trying to figure out how Rita made the totally cliche, overdone schoolgirl look cool again. I guess booty shorts, red lipstick, and blonde hair never do get old. Check out Rita doing her thang for Complex Magazine‘s August cover shoot (hers is the alternate cover, alongside G.O.O.D. Music‘s), inside. Oh– and she’s dating Rob Kardashian???

A British Hotel Replaced The Bible With ’50 Shades Of Grey’

Ugh. I’m so annoyed that this news falls under today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day! Because otherwise the sub-heading was totally going to be “The British Are Coming.” Which is so much funnier than “That-Ish-Cray Of The Day“! But I gotta follow protocol, even when I have the greatest pun/overtly sexual American Revolutionary War reference ever. Speaking of Americans, apparently a lot of them are pissed off at The Damson Dene Hotel in England. This hotel’s owner committed the blasphemy to end all blasphemies when he decided to replace hotel nightstand staple The Gideon Bible, with that new ish, 50 Shades Of Grey. Deets inside!

Watch: ‘Brokeback Mountain’ Director Releases A Trailer For His New Film, ‘Life Of Pi’

Ang Lee (Oscar-winning director of Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Sense and Sensibility) is determined to change our lives… again. The new trailer for Life Of Pi is beautiful and intense and moving, all in about two minutes worth of shots with no dialogue. It’s as fantastic as the Oz, The Great And Powerful trailer, but moves the viewer with images reminiscent of Beasts Of The Southern Wild. Also got a Noah‘s ark vibe as well. Real, live, epic poetry in motion, inside.

‘Leave Robsten Alone!’ And Other Over-The-Top Reactions To The Kristen Stewart Cheating Scandal

Don’t act like you haven’t been scouring the internet looking for latest on the MADNESS that was yesterday’s Confessions Part III courtesy of Kristen Stewart. Yeah. Usher doesn’t have ish on her. I’m pretty sure there’s nothing worse than having somebody tell the world that they cheated on you. Oh and that they’re really sorry. Oh, and they love you sooo much. Lol, okay. Here’s my own confession: I have “issues” with people “cheating” because I may or may not have been a “cheater” for quite some time until the day I got “cheated on” and since then I’ve been especially hard on “cheaters” mainly to deal with my own emotional “issues” surrounding the “topic.” I used lots of air quotes so you wouldn’t know which part I was being sarcastic about or not. Totally worked, right? There. Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, let’s deal with this tragedy in the only way I know how to deal with tragedies of this magnitude: humor. Very funny, over-the-top, somewhat frightening reactions to Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders‘s scandal heard ’round the world, inside.

The 38-year old actress (who will star in the forthcoming comic book adaptation Dredd) cited “irreconcilable difference” when she filed the documents last week at the L.A. County Superior Court.

Martin Scorsese And Siri Team Up In The New iPhone Ad

Last year he brought us Hugo, and this year he stars in the newest ad for the Apple iPhone 4S. Martin Scorsese can do whatever he wants and whatever he does, I will watch. Inlcuding this ad, over and over for no reason other than that it’s Martin Scorsese and seeing him helps me (sort of) believe that he’s a real person, and not a demigod. This ad renders him totally human– he’s just like me, in a NYC taxi, trying to figure out the fastest way downtown. Oh– and he’s got a meeting at 2 pm. I always have a meeting at 2 pm. Just like Marty… I call him “Marty” sometimes. And apparently, so does Siri. Check out the new ad featuring the greatest director of our time (sorry Wes, sorry Spike, sorry James, sorry Quentin, sorry Woody, sorry Madonna), inside.
