Britney Spears Leaves Her Mark On Hollywood At Grauman’s Chinese Theater

Yesterday was a very nice but very bizzy day for me. I had a fairly early flight out of Detroit yesterday so that I could be back home here in LA in time to attend the world premiere of The X Factor at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA yesterday evening. As you can see below Britney Spears was asked to leave her handprints and autograph in cement for display in front of the theater alongside other iconic Hollywood legends like Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne and more. Oh yeah, the other X Factor judges (Simon Cowell, LA Reid and Demi Lovato) were also asked to leave their handprints in cement but really … it was all about Britney. After the ceremony, we were treated to the season 2 premiere episode of The X Factor (which airs on Fox tonight) and then a short Q&A with fans afterward. I was able to be fairly close to the action all night long so, yeah, I had a great time. Check out the photos below and see for yourselves. More »

Christina Aguilera Reveals That She Is Leaving ‘The Voice’ Next Year

The new season of The Voice just debuted this week (to lower numbers than last season’s premiere, I must add) but today we are hearing about the forthcoming exit of one of the show’s judges. Christina Aguilera, the sole female judge on The Voice, has revealed to Billboard magazine that she will be leaving the show at the end of the Spring 2013 season so that she can focus on her own music career. As you may know, Xtina is readying the release of a new album so it’s possible that she is planning a tour next year … which means she wouldn’t have time to be a judge on The Voice.

Today is September 11 and it is the one day out of the year that Pink is the new Blog does not publish the frivolity of pop culture and celebrity fun so that we can, I hope, take the time instead to focus on remembering and honoring the lives lost on September 11, 2001. It has been 11 years since terrorists attacked the US but the pain of loss is as palpable today as it was all those years ago. I hope you will take the time that you would normally spend reading fun, gossy stories here on PITNB and will, instead, read thru the far too long list of names listed below. As the new One World Trade Center continues to grow taller and taller with each passing year, we are reminded of the American spirit that will not be quelled by those who would attack us in an attempt to hurt us. The new WTC building grows higher above the National September 11 Memorial which stands in constant tribute to the many lives lost in the 9/11 attacks. I hope you will take the time to see the photos of both the One World Trade Center building and of the National September 11 Memorial below to see how far we’ve come from that terrible day 11 years ago. Then, I hope you will read through the names of the lives lost on that day and … remember. We must never forget. More »
