Pink beer is the latest product to be feminized for the fairer sex. Molson Coors, a brewery, is pink-ifying a lager called Animée to be less “masculine” with “clear filtered, crisp rosé and zesty lemon flavors,” according to the UK’s Independent.
Pink beer … sounds like wine. It sounds like champagne, actually. And pink champagne is already a thing. Ergo, pink beer is not something that needs to happen, except in La La La Marketing Land where advertisers think anything “pink” appeals to pretty, pretty princesses women. Newsflash, beer advertisers: maybe if every single one of your commercials wasn’t about T&A your products would appeal to us more! Keep reading »
Earlier this week, Pink released the first photo of her daughter, Willow Sage Hart (still such a kickass name, right?). It was and still is super cute, as you can see above, and it melted all our hearts. And then, last night, Pink posted a note on her site explaining why she released the picture, and I thought it was just wonderful, and by far the best response to paparazzi attacks I’ve ever heard.
It’s kind of long, so you can go ahead and jump on through to read the whole thing, but I strongly suggest that you do. If you don’t, just know that she’s donating all the money she gets from that little family portrait up there to charity and that Carey Hart has been pooped on. Do you love it or what?

Selena Gomez sure is stirring up some controversy this week. Yesterday, she smooched suspected beau Justin Bieber at the Billboard Music Awards, making tweenage girls everywhere swell with rage. And on Friday, she shot the video for “Love You Like a Love Song” in Malibu which features … pink horses. Selena’s rep says that no animals were harmed in the making of the video, but Pink was still not pleased. She tweeted, “If there are any animal activists around Malibu—at Leo Cabrillo State Beach—there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame.” Personally, I am way more concerned by the fact that her love interest in the video has way too long hair and is wearing fringed pants. Check him out after the jump. Keep reading »
‘s music videos are nothing but provocative — and that’s why I love her. “F**king Perfect” is an angst-ballad about loving and respecting oneself, but the NSFW video, which appeared online yesterday, is all about a young women’s self-hatred. She snorts drugs, shoplifts, and in one gruesome scene, cuts the word “PERFECT” in her arm with a razor blade.
A friend DMed me this morning about Pink’s video, calling it “exploitation disguised as empowerment,” “highly uninformed,” and done for “shock value.” I agree that, standing alone, a woman cutting the word “PERFECT” into her arm with a razor blade is over-the-top and gratuitous. But in this particular video, with this particular song, it works. And I’m willing to forgive it being a little too gratuitous because I think she’s ultimately depicting a very real problem that young women experience. Keep reading »
“I just watched about 20 3 yr olds in their 1st holiday recital. My heart hurts it was so damn adorable. I’m gonna b a soccer mom aren’t I? S**t.”
—Pink, who is currently pregnant, tweets after feeling all maternal at a holiday recital. Yep, we can already picture her behind the wheel of a wood paneled minivan. [People] Keep reading »

There’s good news across the pond for parents who want their little girls to believe they can grow up and be anything they want: A parents group called Pink Stinks, which pressures toy companies and stores to rise above marketing based on traditional gender roles, seems to have been successful in getting the Early Learning Center to change their pink ways — at least a little bit.
