“When I met Carey, I was an abused puppy in the corner, ready to bite anyone who put their hand out. He was the first man I was with who allowed me to take a deep breath and close my eyes and fall backwards. [...] My heart was like this clenched fist. And even after he broke my heart, still, I had two bigger halves. I have more capacity to love and be loved.”

Since I’ve always been a blue girl myself, I’ve never gotten the appeal of pink. So I’m kind of intrigued by Pinkstinks, a grassroots group in the U.K. that calls for boycotts on shops selling pink toys and clothes for girls. They say that the “pinkification” begins a narrowing of attitudes for girls—they fear pink may be the beginning of a convention where girls prefer being pretty to being smart. Pinkstinks hopes that by calling for boycotts, girls in the “pink stage” will be more aware of issues like “self esteem and confidence, raise their ambitions and ultimately improve their life chances,” according to the organization’s website. This seems like a bit of a reach, but Pinkstinks feels that forcing pink costumes and princess dresses on girls’ “is leading our daughters up a ‘pink alley.’” Despite that unfortunate phrasing (euphemism for vagina?), I have to admit that sounds plausible. Would I be a heavy metal drummer or a spelunker if I hadn’t been afraid of getting my dress stained or sweaty in my formative years? But then again, can a color really have such influence on anyone? What do you think—worthwhile group or total overreaction? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »
Ben Hill County Jail in Georgia will be undergoing some pretty severe interior decoration soon. So, why do we care? The whole jail will be painted Pepto-Bismol pink on the inside and re-refurbished in the girly hue: pink walls, pink shower curtains, pink bed sheets, pink blankets, even pink handcuffs. I wonder how much that is costing taxpayers.
But why a loud Pepto-Bismol pink, of all colors? Are they trying to torture these prisoners? No, they’re trying to shame them. Because, you know, pink is a feminine color. There is no punishment worse than making a man be the slightest bit feminine, apparently. Keep reading »
Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?
Pink has a fierce new trapeze act in her new show (here in L.A.), and, on one hand, she is simply attempting to rock a trend that is so hot right now: After all, celebs just love to wear pasties! Rihanna does a great job with her Nippies, but as much as we look at the positives here, we’re afraid we just can’t help you out Pink. If you get arrested, don’t come crying to us to bail you out. (Oh wait, here’s another look on the bright side: By outfitting your own breast with a heart shape, you’ve saved us precious minutes in the day so we don’t have to Photoshop one on top of this pic. Thanks!) Keep reading »
I like Pink, but this outfit is freaky, and I don’t mean that in a good way. The whole things just screams: “Look at my camel toe, people! My ace bandaged, glittery camel toe!” That is not a message that I want my clothes to telegraph. But maybe that’s why I’m not on the stage like a rock star, no? It’s kind of Cirque de Soleil meets “The Fifth Element.” It is also totally hideous. If you would like to check out a more up-close-and-personal shot of this business, dare to look after the jump.

Ain’t love grand? Even though Pink wrote an entire album about her split from motorcross bad ass Carey Hart, and even dissed him to his face in her “So What” video, the pair is now happily back together and even renewed their vows in Australia this week. Pink is on tour promoting Funhouse, i.e. the breakup record. “It’s funny to sing those songs now,” says Pink. “He’s in the audience, so when I sing ‘He’s a tool,’ now that’s my favorite line. I’m like, ‘Hi honey, that’s you!’” Awkward.
Oh, but Pink isn’t the only rock star to totally diss a former lovah in a song, only to take their ex back. It’s as if money, power, readily available groupies, and an entire world cheering their empowerment on isn’t enough. After the jump, the most egregious examples. Keep reading »
