I Don't Like Mondays

Blah! Where the hell did the summer go? It's already the last day of July ... um, doesn't it feel like we just started the summer and now we're entering into the final month :( It didn't really hit me until I noted the day's date ... for me, the end of July always signals the beginning of the end of the summer.

Ah well, it's a whole new week ... let's get to it ...

Jamie Lynn Spears made an appearance at the Hollywood premiere of the animated movie Barnyard yesterday afternoon ... here are a few pictures of Miss JL lookin' pretty in pink on the red carpet:

You know what isn't quite so pretty is that wound on her lower lip ... I really hope it's not what I fear it is. Obviously, Jamie Lynn wasn't invited out to Vegas to party with Spederline at K-Fed's video shoot and was relegated to partaking in more innocent fare back home ... and that's just fine by me. Stay fresh, stay clean Jamie Lynn. [Source]

Mariah Carey performed her little US pre-tour show for Pepsi Cola Saturday night at the Kodak Theater here in Hollywood, CA. Here are a few pictures from her Pepsi Smash show courtesy of Mariah fan Aztlanstar and

Mimi kicks off the US leg of her world tour on August 5th in Miami, FL but a few lucky fans got to see a preview of her tour last night at the Pepsi Smash concert. The show looks hot ... click HERE to see more pictures from Saturday night's concert and visit Mariah Daily for MP3s from the show. [Source]

Ashley Olsen has taken her ridiculous love of ridiculously large purses to a new extreme ...

Hahhahahahah ... this bag is as long as the top half of her body. What am I missing ... why is carrying a bag this huge cool and fashionable? I can appreciate a hot bag but this is waaaay too ludicrous. What the hell could she possibly be carrying in there? [Source]

Awww ... check out these cute pictures of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner taking in a Red Sox vs. Angels baseball game over the weekend:

These two have been married, what ... 45 years now? Looks like the spark is still there. See ... I knew that this Bennifer would stand the test of time. [Source]

Speaking of old couples ... it looks like Paris Hilton and Stavros Niarchos are still on very friendly terms even tho they are no longer together. Check out these new pictures of Parisopolis getting reacquainted at a club in St. Tropez over the weekend:

Okay ... raise your hand if you're at all surprised by this. I, for one, am shocked ... I really thought Stavros had learned his lesson. [thanks Jinky]

There has been a lot of drama in the comments section of this blog over the weekend regarding the DUI arrest of Mel Gibson on Friday. Charges have been thrown around of hatred, hypocrisy, anti-this and that and I think it's time all of those harsh, negative feelings be refocused against a true evil. We shouldn't be fighting one another, we should be aligning ourselves against a common enemy ... the true enemy ... the real threat against our very existence as we know it ...

We must unite as one to bring about the end of this short pants phenomenon. Clam Diggers, Peddle Pushers, Capris, Manpris ... they must be eradicated. Think about the children! Together ... we can do it. [Source]

OY! As if the proliferation of manpris wasn't bad enough ... what the hell do you call this look?

I call it, Hell to the No. How in the world is Mischa Barton OK with this? [Source]

For the most part, Mischa has some semblance of fashion sense ... I may not always agree with what she wears or the fashion risks she takes ... but by and large, she does seem to have a clue in that pretty little head of hers. Check out these new pictures of Mischa Barton from her upcoming ad campaign for Morgan de Toi:

I gotta say (and I really can't believe I'm saying this but,) Mischa looks incredible. I even like the (gasp) stockings in that last pic. I'm not sure what it is that she sees in fashion maven Cisco (he must have a big ... personality) but she could at least give him a few pointers. [Source, Source]

Finally! It looks like Beyonce has hung up her bee hive hairdo and decided to go back to normal ... check out these hot pictures of B from the new issue of Arena magazine:

I much prefer the hoochified Beyonce to the comical one that has been showing up around town lately. [Source]

Nelly Furtado is on the cover of the Portuguese magazine Blitz and unfortunately she looks like the victim of a botched run-in with a botox needle:

What is going on with her face? She deffo looks like she should be starring opposite Cher in the movie Mask. [Source]

Check out these insanely hot pictures from the September issue of the Australian magazine DNA. These photos, taken by famed photographer Lewis Payton, are a great way to start out a bizzy work week:

For obvious reasons, I have been a huge fan of Lewis' work for some time now. His beautiful photographs appear regularly in DNA, which is why I squeal with glee every time a new issue appears in my mailbox. Head on over to Lewis' site or the DNA site to check out more examples of his work. [Source]

Here are a couple pictures of a couple of the girls who will be featured in the new season of Laguna Beach: The Real OC. Say hello to Kyndra and Cami:

It looks like the next gen of LBers already know how to step their game in order to roll with the alums ... [thanks Dominique]

... and speaking of the LB alums, here are a couple pictures of Miss Kirstin Cavallari upping the ante a bit with a promiscuous picture or two of her own:

Wow. KC looks about 2 drinks away from a nudie spread in a skin mag. What happened to the sweet and innocent Kristin? [thanks Emma]

Hmmm ... how good are you at recognizing celebrity feet? Well ... here's your chance to find out ... can you guess who these tootsies belong to?

I'm not sure how many of you are really keen on checkin' out feet this early in the week but hey ... at least they aren't nasty feet. There ain't no bunions or corns or anything gross like that ... just a pair of regular ol' feet. Have fun! [Source]

And finally, Pink reader Eric sends in this awesome picture of his Pink is the new Blog sticker that he proudly displays on his DJ turntable:

Wu Tang and PITNB ... I don't get more fab than that. Loves it! [thanks Eric]

Unfortch, I am well out of PITNB stickers ... but I should have more available soon.

Les News:
Yesterday was my first quiet day alone here in LA. Life is getting settled ... I'm becoming more used to my surroundings. I am loving my apartment ... I'm still a ways from being completely done with it but it will be a work in progress for a while. I gotta admit, it's starting to feel more like home.

And speaking of home, I will be flying back to Detroit at the end of this week for Zakiya's first birthday party on Saturday. I am very excited to see my friends again ... I realize I haven't been gone that long but it'll be great to see them all again. More on that trip later on in the week.

Blah ... it's Monday ... and no one likes Mondays ... I hope you have an OK one. I'm out.

UPDATE: Star Magazine is reporting that Mel Gibson has checked himself into a rehab program of some sort and the LA County Sheriff's Department has released his mugshot:

Mel Gibson has checked himself into a recovery program for alcohol, the troubled actor's rep Alan Nierob, exclusively tells Star. "He is in a program of recovery at this time," Nierob says. Plus, Chris Prentiss, a neighbor of Gibson's and the co-founder of celebrity treatment centre Passages in Malibu, Calif., tells Star: "I understand he has gone into recovery program. The center that I've heard he's checked himself into follows the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step program. And I don't believe that will help him." Prentiss — who refused to name the rehab center he's heard Gibson is in — adds: "I think he needs individual intense therapy by a team of people who know what they are looking for in causes in alcoholism. There are only four causes and it is one or more of those four causes that are causing him to be out of control. CNN is confirming this report, you can read the CNN story HERE. It still remains to be seen what punishment, if any, will come of all of this. Don't shoot the messenger, it's just the news, y'all. [Source]
