Listen, I’ve never thought of Pink (binomial: P!nk) as a particularly well-dressed person, but this is a new low nonetheless. On the bright side, I like her pastel quiff! Seriously though, am I overreacting or is this actually one of the most unseemly dresses ever created? You decide.
Hey! Guess what? Pink is too edgy for a bra in a video message to announce her forthcoming album The Truth About Love. Duct tape X’s are more her style. Hey! Quit looking at her nipples and look at her lovely face, would you? And yeah, buy her new album. It’s out September 18. We’ve rounded up a few more celebs who’ve done the duct tape on nipple thing.

I never thought I’d say this, but Jessica Alba might just be my celebrity style icon at the moment. She’s does casual so well. She manages to look super cool and comfortable without dressing like a total schlub. Here, in a polka-dotted shirt, pink pants, and cute little mules, she is the epitome of Chic Mom. Which makes sense, since she is one.
Dusty pink is such a beautiful, romantic color. It’s much quieter than its loud cousin hot pink, more complex than its simple sister light pink, and–surprise!–it actually works on a variety of skin tones. Here are seven dusty pink dresses we’re currently lusting after. Click through to check ‘em out!
Chris Brown still has a lot of fans … but Pink and Carey Hart aren’t two of them. The couple was tweeting up a storm while watching the Billboard Music Awards together on Sunday night, and when Brown came on to “sing” ”Turn Up the Music,” they didn’t hold back.
“One day if i lipsync, i hope i do it as well as him…” Pink tweeted, referencing the fact that Brown was clearly not singing live during his performance.
Hart jumped in as well, adding “Im pretty sure i saw my wife did that same performance, but she was 3 months pregnant and actually sang the song.” Read more…
Let’s do the Time Warp, yeaaaah!
Amelia has gone back in time and unearthed a video of Baby Jessica Wakeman (real name: Riley), who is just as opinionated as she is in adult form. Riley is seen shopping in a toy store, with a man I presume is her father, when she goes off on a rant about how pink is not just for girls. You tell ‘em, Riley! And in another 15 years, there is an internship waiting for you at The Frisky. [YouTube] Keep reading »
Bangkok, Thailand has taken a pretty non-traditional approach to curbing police corruption. Of late, they’ve been punishing officers who act out of line by requiring that they wear pink Hello Kitty armbands on their uniforms. “This new twist is expected to make them feel guilt and shame and prevent them from repeating the offense, no matter how minor,” said Pongpat Chayaphan, acting chief of the Crime Suppression Division in Bangkok. “Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It’s not something macho police officers want covering their biceps.”
Hmm, okay, so we get it. Pink Hello Kitty armbands are juvenile and girly. But God, there are so many things wrong with this idea. First off, does anybody remember the last time “violators” were identified using armbands? I’ll give you a hint: It stars with H and ends with OLOCAUST.
