Pink Is The NEW Blogger

For the past week, as I’m sure y’all are well aware, a new writer named Melissa has been publishing blogposts here on Pink is the new Blog. For the most part, many of you have posted in the comments very nice and very supportive messages of welcome to Melissa … others have posted, well, less than nice and supportive comments. Because the addition of Melissa as a new voice to the blog is a big change, I expected commenters to be vocal about their opinions. And as with any change, a lot of knee jerk reaction has been “I hate it”. I wanted to give Melissa the benefit of a week of writing before I chimed in and blogged about her addition to the site. I am really excited to have her on board because I know that we are going to make a great team and I know we are going to achieve our goal of making Pink is the new Blog a more rounded, more enjoyable reading experience for all.

Christina Aguilera Covers ‘Marie Claire’ Magazine

I think it’s safe to say that 2010 was not a great year for popstar-turned-actress Christina Aguilera … not only did her marriage to Jordan Bratman come to an end but her professional career didn’t fare much better. Her album Bionic was deemed a flop and her film debut Burlesque wasn’t well received by critics and audiences. BUT, despite her arrest for public intoxication last year, 2011 turned out to be a better year for Xtina. Her hosting gig on The Voice managed to mute all of the previous year’s negativity and make her a star again. Xtina is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Marie Claire magazine and in her coverstory interview, she talks about her lows … and her highs and lets us know that she is now in a really great place in her life. Check out Xtina‘s coverphoto and read some excerpts from her Marie Claire feature below. More »

What’s Your Number is on DVD starting today

It’s time to relive the quirky love affair in What’s Your Number?, where Anna Faris struggles not to increase her “number” (you know exactly what that means) until she meets The One.

Which means swearing off sex until she meets the man of her dreams, which is tough to do when your neighbor is Chris Evans‘ smokin’ hot bod and sexy apple eating abilities. So go grab the DVD — for Anna’s Borat impression, for Joel McHale‘s flirting, or just so you can hit “pause” on Chris Evans’ 11,000 nekkid scenes. More »
