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 »
(From left to right): Pink’s “Funhouse” tour; Madonna’s “Sticky & Sweet” tour; Britney Spears’ “Circus” tour
Pink surprisingly jumped on the circus-themed concert bandwagon with her “Funhouse” tour costumes. When a wannabe badass like Pink starts jumping on a trend, it’s time to retire it. So, we implore these concert producers to stop with the three-ring, freak show madness. Even Katy Perry refused to do the circus thing for a recent concert, saying, “That’s really being done by a lot of people right now.”

For the most part, men have three color choices when it comes to suits: black, gray, and navy blue. They’ve been able to expand their shirt and tie options from the traditional white, blue, white and blue striped, and white and blue checked over the years, and perhaps the increase in popularity of golf and other country club sports made it more common for men to wear pale pink and purple shirts and ties. Pink has become a much more acceptable color for guys than it was just a few years ago, and it might soon be as acceptable as it was in the early 1900s.
Suits in practically fluorescent shades of pink came down the runways at the Fall 2009 Dolce & Gabbana show, the Spring 2009 Givenchy and Calvin Klein shows. And Refinery 29 spotted men wearing the neon shade on men outside fashion shows, too. Most guys I know probably won’t be suiting up in hot pink for work, but celebs like Kanye West and Pete Wentz would definitely throw one on for a premiere or a party. And I have a feeling we’re going to start seeing men wear this color a whole lot more often, even if only on their socks. Keep reading »
Pink equals girl, blue equals boy. That’s the widespread association with those two colors, but it wasn’t always that way. In the early 1900s, blue was for girls and pink was for boys. Back then, the British magazine Women’s Journal explained: “That pink being a more decided and stronger colour, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.” DressMaker magazine agreed. “The preferred colour to dress young boys in is pink. Blue is reserved for girls as it is considered paler, and the more dainty of the two colours, and pink is thought to be stronger (akin to red).” No one knows when the change took place, but by the time Adolf Hitler was in power, the switch had been made, as he labeled homosexuals with a pink triangle, which associated them with femininity.

“It feels very confusing. It’s bittersweet. It’s funny, it’s empowering, it’s ‘Screw you,’ it’s all of that. It’s amazing to be number one but it’s ironic that it took [Carey Hart and I] breaking-up to get there. It’s a testament to how often people break-up, because everyone can relate to what I’m saying.
