A Bathing Ape

I can't ... believe ... my eyes ... have I stared too long a pictures of Kimberly Stewart that my vision has been severely damaged? Have I fallen into a parallel universe? Is the world coming to a speedy end? What in the name of all things good and holy could cause such a momentous event such as ... the cleaning of Kevin Federline?!?


These pictures, courtesy of US Weekly magazine, are from K-Fed's upcoming appearance in Item magazine which is due to hit newsstands on June 5th. In the magazine Kevin waxes philosophical on fame and fatherhood: On his kids: "It's completely unfair when a child is brought into this world an now he's already looked at like a prince. My kids are going to have to learn what a real job is, what life is. You don't have it easy with me. Period....My kids are going to work at Taco Bell, dammit." On his media conspiracy theory: "The same day Dick Cheney shoots someone, they've got me on the cover of MSN [Web site]. It's life they're diverting attention from what's really going on." On the public: "I should just put a bulls-eye on my back. If I stay home and take care of my wife and my kids, then I'm a loafer, not a good father. If I try to have a career, nobody thinks I am caring for my family. I can't win." Yep, that sounds about right ... Sean Preston is destined to work at Taco Bell, Kevin is (unfortch) more important than Dick Cheney and we, the public, will prolly never believe that he is a hard working husband and father.

But none of his blathering is at all relevant ... did you see these pictures?! Homeskillet is really trying to pull a fast one on us. Don't think for a moment that The Federline has retired his baggy shorts and wife-beater t-shirts. He may clean up and *gasp* shave for a magazine photo shoot but it takes more than a new suit and a dorky haircut to change this tiger's stripes. [Source, thanks Molly]

Britney ... don't be fooled ... stay on course with Perry the hot manny. We got your back, girl!

Wedding Belles

I know many of you missed seeing Brit Brit on the blog yesterday but I figured she and her new man Perry (the manny) needed a day off so that they could spend some quality time alone. It looks like things are progressing very nicely ... Brit and Perry have been seen out and about almost every day since she returned home from NYC. What's even better is that she has yet to be seen with Kevin Federline ... at all ... since her return from the East Coast. Here are new pictures of Brit, Sean and the manny out for a nice stroll:


See? See that? She finally got a stroller for Sean Preston (altho, she's not using it -- she still insists on carrying that baby) It looks like she's listening to us ... she's finally wisening up ... a new stroller ... a new man ... a new pair of shoes. It appears that our prayers are finally being answered! Thank you, Xenu! [Source]

Here are more pictures from the set of Spider-Man 3. Yesterday we got our first look at Bryce Dallas Howard as Gwen Stacy and today we have our first look at Topher Grace as Eddie Brock:




Eddie Brock, as you may know, starts out as Peter Parker's reporter rival and eventually becomes the villain Venom. Eddie has always been portrayed in the comics as a huge muscular dude ... not exactly the way that I would describe Topher Grace. At any rate, these pictures are really cool. I can't believe we're gonna hafta wait an entire year to see this movie. [Source]

Mariah Carey has been in NYC promoting her upcoming tour, her new Pepsi ringtone campaign and picking up awards along the way. Here are pictures of Mimi on her way into The Today Show (brown outfit) and on her way into Radio City Music Hall (blue outfit):


Mariah chatted with Katie Couric and Matt Lauer about her The Adventures of Mimi tour. Mimi brought along her baby Jack to Radio City Music Hall to pick up her BEST LEGS award from Gillette Venus. [Source, Source]

Here is a picture of Mariah standing next to a huge-ass replica of her award-winning set of gams:


Performer and Songwriter Mariah Carey Receives First "Celebrity Legs of a Goddess" Title and Announces Fourth Annual Search for Best Legs in America. Gillette Venus [PG], a recognized authority on women's legs, today named Mariah Carey the first "Celebrity Legs of a Goddess." The superstar, who captured three GRAMMY Awards for her celebrated six-times platinum album The Emancipation of Mimi, was immortalized with a 16-foot high likeness of her perfect legs. Ms. Carey unveiled the replica during a ceremony at New York's legendary Radio City Music Hall, home to some of the most famous legs in the world. As the official 2006 "Celebrity Legs of a Goddess," Ms. Carey kicked off Venus' nationwide search for the woman with the most beautiful legs in the U.S. "Legs of a Goddess" contests will be held at select venues during Ms. Carey's highly anticipated concert tour, The Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, The Hits, The Tour. "Mariah Carey was our hands-down choice for the first Venus 'Celebrity Legs of a Goddess' title," said Peter Clay, Vice President Premium Systems, Gillette Global Grooming. "She has gorgeous legs, and she radiates the inner beauty and confidence that embodies the Venus brand." I think Mariah looks amazing ... the legs statue is really freaky but hey, an award is an award. [Source]

Some said that it couldn't be done ... some said there was no way America's First Next Top Model was gonna talk Peter Brady into getting married but it happened ... Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight finally tied the knot Monday in Joliet, IL:


VH1's My Fair Brady stars Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight were married Monday evening, PEOPLE has confirmed. The couple exchanged vows in front of 250 friends and family during a traditional ceremony at the Christ Episcopal Church in Curry's hometown of Joliet, Ill ... In attendance at their wedding were former Brady Bunch stars Barry Williams (Greg Brady), Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) and Mike Lookinland (Bobby Brady), as well as VH1's The Surreal Life co-star Joannie "Chyna" Laurer. "About 14 days after I met him, I bought a bridal magazine," Curry told PEOPLE in March, about meeting Knight. "I started researching." Boy -- ain't that the truth. Adrianne practically jumped the poor guy's bones the moment she laid eyes on him on their season of The Surreal Life. Honestly, I never believed that they would ever get married ... here's hoping they made the right decision and live happily ever after -- well, at the very least I hope they make it to Xmas. [Source]

Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal were in the Hamptons over the weekend to attend and participate in a friend's wedding. Here are a few pictures of the Gyllenhaals being all matrimonial with their friends:


It looks like a very pregs Maggie actually participated in the wedding ceremony. It looks like Jake was on hand to just stand around and look good. Ever the sportsman, Jakey poo and his boys spent some time playing some b-ball before they had to get all dolled up for the wedding. Woot!

Hmmm ... these pictures of Reese Witherspoon with her little girl Ava sure seem to support the rumors that Reese is, indeed, pregs with, what would be, her third child:


Altho, the rumors about her "third pregnancy" have been going around since December '05. It does look she's got a little tummy going on, don't it? Ryan Phillippe, meanwhile, used his growing pecs and beefy calves to pick up some food for his happy little family. I have to say, I think it'd be great if Witherppe had a third child -- we all know that Ryan and Reese make the cutest babies. [Source]

It looks like Ashlee Simpson isn't merely content with a new nose ... apparently she got herself a new pair of lips to go along with her new, cute nose:


All she needs now is a pair of breasts and she will complete her transformation into her sister Jessica Simpson. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! [Source]

Check out these pictures of Dita von Teese performing for Hugh Hefner at one of his many, many 80th birthday parties:


I love these pictures of Dita ... she is so beautiful. I'm kinda over Hugh's 80th birthday but these pix of Dita's performance just couldn't be passed up. [Source]

What is it about a man on a horse that is so strangely appealing? Hmmm ... it must be that Brokeback thing. Anyways, check out this picture of Prince Harry at the Hurtwood Park Polo Club in Surrey, England over the weekend:


The hawt prince was participating in the polo event which was held to raise money for his charity Sentebale, which assists children orphaned by AIDS in Lesotho, Africa. So lemme get this straight ... not only is Prince Harry working to raise money for AIDS orphans in Africa but he's also looking hot while doing so? Le Sigh! [Source]

Blaurgh! Even tho Heather Locklear claims she's no longer with David Spade here is a new picture of the pair lookin' pretty cozy on a beach in Malibu over the weekend:


I suppose the pair could be "just friends" ... and I sincerely hope that is the case. The thought of David Spade having sex with anyone is just kind of nauseating. [Source]

Speaking of nauseating, here are newish pictures of Kimberly Stewart enjoying a lovely lunch with friends:


I hope she enjoyed her lunch cuz I doubt I'm going to enjoy mine. [Source]

Pink reader Tacha discovered that Kimberly Stewart has been signed to ... get this ... a modeling agency. After I finished LOLing my ass off I checked out the website for Nous Model Management and found her model card page:


Kim looks more like a severely flat-chested Samantha Fox than her usual fug self ... which is prolly why she got hired ... OR ... maybe she pays them to employ her ... which does make more sense. [Source, thanks Tacha]

And finally, here are few outtake pictures of Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn from their photoshoot for Entertainment Weekly magazine:


The Break-Up opens this Friday ... here's hoping it at least makes the Top 10 at the box office. [Source, thanks Peri]

Les News:
I got to spend some time hanging out with Tracey and Zakiya last night at Tracey's place. When I got there, Zakiya was all decked out in her hot pink polka dot bathing suit ready to pose for pictures:


Couldn't you just die?! She just learned how to kiss (she's puckering up for the camera in the 4th and 5th pics) and is now standing up on her own ... she should be walking in mere moments.

Trace picked up a new computer so after my haircut this afternoon I'm going over to help her set it up ... then Sarah and I are hanging out. I predict we'll be planted in front of the TV for the premiere of The Hills.

That is all ... I'm out! Lates!

Tingling

Hot Damn! Summer is finally upon us! Not only has this summer's blockbuster season gotten off to a BIG BANG! but so has filming for next summer's blockbuster season. We've already seen pictures of Tobey Maguire (wearing the black Spider-Man suit) filming some scenes for Spider-Man 3 and here are even more pictures from the set of Spider-Man 3. Check out these pictures of Tobey, Bryce Dallas Howard and a random stunt Spider-Man:


No, Bryce Dallas Howard isn't playing Xtina Aguilera in the third Spider-Man film (altho, with that cheap fake hair and too powdery make-up I can see how there might be some confusion) she's actually playing Gwen Stacy -- Peter Parker's "first true love" before he met, fell in love with and married Mary Jane. It's interesting that they are only just introducing Gwen's character since they've already played up the Peter Parker/Mary Jane relationship. At any rate, these pictures are really cool. I hope we get to track the movie's progress as filming continues over the next few months. [Source]

Sarah Michelle Gellar is also hard at work on her new movie The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing in NYC ... check out these cute pictures of SMG getting all cozy with some dude in a horse drawn carriage:


It is really great having SMG back at work ... she looks great. [Source]

Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn (tho, not pictured together) were both on hand for the Chicago premiere of The Break-Up last night, here are a couple of pictures of a solo Jennifer on the red carpet:


I really don't get why Jennifer and Vince refuse to be photographed together at their new movie premieres. They co-star in The Break-Up ... we all know they're together -- at the very least they're good friends who like to spend time together and yet ... they won't be photographed together. I don't think this bodes well for the movie's promotion. [Source]

Here are pictures of Vinnifer hanging out at the Chicago Cubs baseball game yesterday afternoon (before they split up for the premiere) ... shock of shocks ... they were actually sitting right next to one another:


After months of hype, one of the most anticipated movies ever shot in Chicago premieres here Monday night. "The Break Up" stars, Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston, are in town for the event. The pair took in a Cubs game before the movie premiered at the Music Box on Southport. Vaughn led Cubs fans in "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch. Well, even tho Jen won't be seen with her "unofficial boyfriend" Vince on the red carpet it's cool that she has no problem hanging out with him at a ball game. They really are becoming the toast of Chicago, aren't they? [Source]

While Vince was asked to throw out the first pitch for the Cubs, Julia Stiles was asked to throw out the first pitch for the New York Mets in their game against Arizona last night:


Who knew that pitching was so ... exciting ... or was it just cold at the Shea Stadium ... whatever the case may be, Julia's headlights sure are beaming. [Source]

Check out this picture of the Olsen twins looking boisterous and happy ... yes, the Olsen twins ... actually happy. What could make the usually woebegone and disconsolate Mary Kate and Ashley so giddy?


The twins are cheering on their older brother Trent Olsen at his college graduation. Who knew that the Olsen twins could be so emotive? Happy day, indeed! [Source]

It appears that the rumors concerning trouble in the world of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have been greatly exaggerated ... or at the very least, TomKat have decided to keep up the charade of their happy relationship. Here are pictures of Tom and Katie playing a friendly game of baseball:


Picture perfect ... as always. The happy couple frolicking barefoot in the grass playing America's favorite pastime. Sure, we've STILL not seen hide nor hair of their newborn baby girl Suri Holmes-Cruise but the couple appear to be very happy, don't they? Poor Katie ... she really looks whipped -- it's the only explanation for why she didn't make a break for it and run for her life. [Source]

I know I give Nicole Richie some good natured ribbing sometimes but it looks like she really means it when she says she's trying to back to a healthy weight. Check out these pictures of a bikini-clad Nicole over the span of just a few months:


Hanging out with her mates on a Malibu beach, she looked marginally less skinny than when we last saw her in a bikini back in December 2005 ... Although she still looks diddy, her hip bones are a little less sharp and she appears to have more of a curve about the waist than six months ago. She certainly looked happy and confident as she joked with her buddies ... Let's hope she continues in her effort to cover her bones. I completely agree! It's good to see a little curvature on Miss Richie ... here's hoping she continues to add curves to different parts of her body. [Source]

Paris Hilton has finished the first round of filming for her debut music video (and boy, didn't we get a lot of hilarity out of those pictures?) and decided to thank her video co-star by taking him out for a night on the town ... you know, cuz he is such a swell guy:


UGH ... I'm sure he really deserved everything he got from Paris ... you know ... her gratitude, her appreciation ... her immense and limitless sense of humor. [Source]

Pink readers Laura, Beth and Kristin were partying at TAO in Las Vegas Sunday night for Madonna's Vegas tour afterparty ... while they didn't run into Madonna, they did run into Paris Hilton (who was partying with her mother Kathy and her sister Nicky):


Laura also sends in THIS video of Paris performing her song Screwed. Er ... I'm not sure that "performing" is actually the right word ... it sounds like she is definitely lip syncing. I'm not sure that we're really ready for Paris the Pop Star. [thanks Laura, Beth & Kristin]

OUCH! Why do you suppose that Kate Moss is walking around town with a big fat bruise on her cheek? It's interesting ... Kate has ex-boyfriend Pete Doherty over to her place for a little visit, the paparazzi catch Pete leaving her place, Kate goes outside to pummel the paparazzi for photographing Pete and ends up showing off her brand new shiner:


The model is dressed in a light grey trouser suit, white shirt, cream pumps and dark glasses. The Mirror surveys the ensemble and wonders if behind the lenses Kate is hiding a black eye. "There is no swelling. Nothing happened," says a pal of the model. But the Mirror seems unconvinced. It zooms in, circling the area of interest. To our untrained eye, things appear a little puffy, but not black. The Mail takes a look and says that rather than the eye being marked, it is Kate's cheek that might be bruised. "Her right cheek definitely looked much bigger then the other side," says an onlooker. "Both under her sunglasses and around her chin looked swollen." I'm sure she just fell down or maybe bumped her face into the door jamb ... yeah ... I'm sure that's it. Why in the hell does she still hang out with Pete Doherty? I think her life would be a lot more painless without him in her life. [Source]

Kristin Cavallari and Brody Jenner are still happily together ... for this week at least ... here are pictures of our girl Kristin and Brody hanging out in Malibu, CA:


I can't explain why ... I just lurve this girl. [Source]

Additionally, Kristin is the latest "celeb" to join the Until There's A Cure campaign which is dedicated to eradicating HIV/AIDS by raising awareness and funds to combat this pandemic:


Irregardless of what you think about Kristin, I think it's great that she's using her starpower to help raise awareness and help raise funds for AIDS research. Woot! [Source]

And finally, here is a picture of Pink reader Wendy dressed up as Pink is the new Blog at the San Francisco Bay to Breakers race a couple of weekends ago:


I am very humbled that Wendy would choose to dress up as my blog for the event. As cruiseazy as it may be, I love that she dressed up like PITNB. I also love that she posed with a gaggle of pregnant Britneys. So hot! [thanks Jason & Wendy]

Newstime:
Yesterday was a total lazy day ... I had some vague notion that I would go out at some point to meet up with someone ... or just go out and do something (anything) but that really didn't happen. I ended up staying in my pajamas all day long. I read some (the new Douglas Coupland book is really freakin' good), listened to some music (I *can't believe* how much I like the new Dixie Chicks album) and watched some TV (the new Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat looks like it's gonna be gooooooood -- it's good to have Coral back in play). Overall ... it was a pretty great day.

This evening I'm meeting up with Tracey and Zakiya (I just can't get enough of that precious little princess) so that we can grab a bite to eat and catch up a bit.

Is it hot where you are? It's been so cold in recent weeks and then all of the sudden it's 90 degrees! Love it! Hope you can get out and soak up some sun wherever you are!

I'm out.

Happy Days Are Here Again

It's been a long time since we've seen Britney Spears beaming from ear to ear actually looking ... happy. Check out these pictures of Miss Brit taking her son Sean Preston out for a stroll in the beautiful Malibu, CA sunshine:


Wee! She's got her hot new manny with her ... both Brit Brit and Sean look so happy and content. I'm sure this happy new demeanor has everything to do with the fact that K-Fed has been out of the picture for quite some time now. Yay Britney! I really hope that you've finally wizened up. I can't wait to see the pix of K-Fed moving his shizz out of their manse! [Source]

Here it is ... here is your first look at what baby Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt may look like in about 12 months time:


I don't really think that Shiloh will end up looking so fair-skinned but I suppose it's possible. Until the official pictures of the newborn are released, expect to see many computer generated mock-ups of what baby Shiloh will look like by combining the facial features of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. At least this one ain't so bad. [Source, thanks Maria]

Jude Law and Sienna Miller have been spending quite a lot of time together ... I think it's pretty clear what is going on betwixt these two ... check out these pictures of Jude and Sienna out shopping together over the weekend:


Could it be? After all the tearful confessions and confrontations, have Jude Law and Sienna Miller finally overcome Nannygate? It certainly seemed that way at the Hollywood hot spot Shag on May 22, as Law and Miller got close and cuddly over vodka tonics, PEOPLE reports in its new issue. Lindsay Lohan kept the lovebirds company in their V.I.P. booth, and even volunteered to head outside first at the end of the night, creating a flashbulb frenzy that prevented photographers from catching on to the comely duo. I love it ... L. Lo even stepped in to help the reunited couple try and escape detection. Why do they even try to hide ... we all know what is going on with them. If Sienna can forgive Jude for his indiscretions then we can too -- besides, he's way hotter than Hayden Christensen even if he likes to wear manpris. [Source]

Newlyweds Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott also spent some time over the weekend shopping up a storm in Beverly Hills ... here is the cutest picture of Tori Spelling that I've seen in a long time:


LOL! Tori's never looked so good! Hot! [Source]

Denise Richards is back home in LA after jetting off to meet up with her manfriend Richie Sambora in Italy (she met up with Richie and the rest of Bon Jovi while they had a tour stop in Ravello). Check out this picture of Denise trying to navigate LAX pushing her own luggage:


It's a shame that Richie didn't fly home with her to help with her bags ... I mean, if Denise is going to go thru all the trouble of dating a chubby old dude with an ample beer gut then she should at least be able to count on him to carry her bags for her. What exactly is she getting out of this relationship with Richie exactly? [Source]

Nicole Richie is spending some of her Memorial Day weekend catching some rays on a beach in California ...


... I hope the poor dear doesn't get a nasty burn. [Source]

Speaking of Nicole Richie, E! has posted the official website for The Simple Life 4: 'Til Death Do Us Part:


I can't wait to watch Paris and Nicole try their hand at motherhood ... click HERE to gain some insight from the girls on how they might operate as housewives. The final season of The Simple Life debuts on E! on June 4th. [Source]

Neil Gaiman has posted the first official artwork for the new animated movie Coraline (based on his book of the same name) on his blog which will feature the voices of Teri Hatcher and Dakota Fanning:


Hatcher plays both the mother of the title character (voiced by [Dakota] Fanning) and her other mother in a parallel universe. The young Coraline steps into a world that appears to be a much better version of her own reality, but when her artificial parents attempt to keep her there forever, she must escape the dangerous situation and take a brave journey to get back home. The book is really cute. Neil originally wrote the story for his daughter Maddy and ended up publishing it as a gift for her. As much as Dakota Fanning kinda bugs me, I'm sure her starpower (coupled with Teri Hatcher) will help make this movie successful. [Source]

Pink reader Nikita sends in this magazine scan from an Australian gossip tabloid that quotes Pink is the new Blog word for word and calls me a "Hollywood Insider" as well as a "Hollywood Observer":


The magazine is referring to THIS post that includes my comments on Britney and her hot manny. LOL! [thanks Nikita]

Pink reader Sofia also sends in a magazine scan that features PITNB, this time from a Swedish mag called Pause:


Altho I cannot read the text I'm sure it's a very nice shout-out. Much love to all hot Swedes out there! XO [thanks Sofia]

And finally, it is my sad duty to give a Peace the Spork Out to actor Paul Gleason who died Saturday from a rare form of lung cancer. He will forever be remembered as Principal Richard Vernon from the famed 80's movie The Breakfast Club:


Paul Gleason, a veteran of 60 movie roles including the detention-dispensing school principal in 1985's The Breakfast Club, died in a Burbank, Calif., hospital Saturday of mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer linked to asbestos, said his wife, Susan Gleason. He was 67. "Whenever you were with Paul, there was never a dull moment," his wife told the Associated Press. "He was awesome." A native of Miami, Gleason -- who for a time in the 1950s played Triple-A minor league baseball -- also appeared in Trading Places, Die Hard and National Lampoon's Van Wilder. On TV he played David Thornton on ABC's All My Children in the late '70s. In addition to his wife, Susan, daughters Shannon and Kaitlin and a granddaughter survive Gleason. The Breakfast Club is one of my favorite movies (altho, I don't love it as much as Sarah does). Gleason delivers one of my favorite quotes from that movie:

"Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns."

He will be missed :( [Source]

Da News:
Oy! I had a very irritating flight home from NYC yesterday ... not only was the plane delayed by an unruly passenger but the woman next to me spilled her drink onto my leg. As soon as I dropped my stuff off at home I booked it to Sarah's party. I got to play with Zakiya for a bit before she went home to bed:

It was so nice being home with all my peoples ... yes, there were other people at the party but Zakiya kinda steals the show.

... ugh ... I'm trying to get going today but it's very difficult ...

I hope y'all have a great Memorial Day today! I'm out.

PS: Happy Birthday Van! XO

And In Other News ...

What a crazy weekend it's been already ... Finally -- the fruit of Brangelina's loins, née Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, has been brought into the world (and let's not forget that other celebrity baby that was born the day before ... unfortch, thanks to baby Shiloh, that poor little L.A.M.B. will be totally overshadowed). Let's try and enjoy the other celebrity news that is also going on in the world ...

Just when you thought that Paris Hilton couldn't get any grosser ... well ... why would you ever think that in the first place? I mean, we are talking about Paris Hilton ... ANYWAYS ... here are MORE pictures of Paris on the set of her debut music video showing off her lovely talents:


It's like the grossness just keeps on going strong. I'm not really surprised that it looks like Paris is going to town on that boy but the picture of her wet crotch is really kinda repulsive. Isn't it a precious sight to enjoy on a beautiful Sunday afternoon? [Source, thanks jemfysh]

Check out these cute pictures of Jake Gyllenhaal sitting on a stoop, with a bouquet of flowers, waiting for a friend? A lover? A ... Natalie Portman?!


Didn't these two used to date a few years ago? I seem to recall that Jake and Nat were an item before he hooked up with Kirsten Dunst ... am I wrong? In any case, it appears that these two are, at the very least, very good friends. They make a cute couple ... as much as I hate to admit it. My guess is that they were just good friends ... but I would be okay with these two being more than friends. You have my permission, Jakey poo -- Natalie is a great girl. [Source]

Jude Law likes to jog. Jude Law likes to wear boxer shorts. Jude Law likes to jog while wearing his boxer shorts:


Any questions? [Source]

Michael Jackson has left the safety of his self-imposed exile in the kingdom of Bahrain to attend the Japanese MTV Video Music Awards this weekend. Here are pictures of Jacko posing with the 2006 Japan MTV Legend Award:


Michael Jackson choked up as he thanked his cheering Japanese fans who gathered to see him accept the Japan MTV Legend Award on Saturday, marking the pop icon's first public appearance since his acquittal last June on child molestation charges in the United States. "I'm honoured to be in Japan again and I'm very happy to be among the Japanese people because I love them very much," Jackson said in his brief appearance at the video music awards ceremony Saturday at Tokyo's Yoyogi Olympic Stadium. "Thank you for your loyalty" ... "I'd like to say to the Japanese people from the bottom of my heart, I love you very much," said Jackson in an emotional message. Responding to fans screaming "I love you," Jackson replied: "I love you more." Then he raised his hands with a V-sign. Aww ... MJ looks really happy to be adored by his fans again ... he's also still very scary-looking but let's let him have his moment. [Source]

US Weekly magazine is celebrating the Hottest Bodies at Any Age and they have chosen to highlight the hot bod belonging to Jessica Simpson:


Yes, she has a great figure but that hair ... why is she wearing that awful wig in this photo? She looks very ... matronly. Boo! [Source]

Pink reader Casey ran into our girl Kristin Cavallari at Rockbar in Miami and sends in these pictures of KC partying her little booty off:


Apparently, Miss Kristin ain't too keen on being photographed all the time (she got a wee bit pissy that so many people were taking pictures of her) ... especially when she ain't all made up with make-up and stuff. Hee hee. [thanks Casey]

Pink readers Melissa and Danley were hanging out in San Francisco at the Bay to Breakers Race last Sunday and they decided to wear their way hot Pink is the new Blog-inspired t-shirts:


Loves it! I would totally rock a t-shirt like this :) Incidentally, the Bay to Breakers Race also has a costume contest component and Pink reader Lauren tells me that someone actually dressed up as "Pink is the new Blog" for the event -- they were wearing all black and a bright pink wig and a sign that said I Love Trent. LOL! [thanks Melissa & Danley]

It's time for the Hot Dude of the Week ... let's take a gander at Adam ... and his pierced nips:


As the temperature rises with each passing day, I can see the appeal in wearing a shirt with a plunging neckline like the one that Adam is wearing. Yes, it is getting hot, isn't it? [Source]

And finally, I have to send out LOTS OF BIRTHDAY LURVE to one of my favorite people ever ... Kylie Minogue turns a beautiful 38 years old today:


Kylie has been thru so much in the past year and she doesn't look any worse for the wear at all ... I hope she has the best birthday ever this year. Happy birthday, Kylie ... we all love and adore you! XOXO

El News:
Yesterday was spent enjoying the city ... walking around in SoHo ... Union Square ... the Village ...

Last night was spent in relative quiet ... I fly home to Detroit this evening to meet up with the entire gang at Sarah's place to party the night away. Adriana is in town ... it's sure to be fun times.

The sunshine beckons, I'm out.
