Just Legal

Awww yeah ... wassup, wassup ... I have to give a big Happy 18th Birthday to our girl Hilary Duff:

While most regular 18 year olds are happy to be working a part-time job that allows them to fund all the partying they like to do, our dear Hil. D is already a self-made millionairess who globe-trots all over the world making movies or performing on stage. The girl can rock, y'all!

Much pink love and happy, happy birthday!!!


Life On The D(ivorce)-List

So ... we know that Britney Spears and her mother Lynne Spears were photographed walking around in their backyard carrying a bundle of ... something ... yes, the dogs where there but it was unclear as to whether or not the baby was out there as well ... clearly, Lynne is holding a dog (Bit Bit?) in her arms in this first picture ... but what is she holding in the other 2 pictures?

Now, all kidding aside, I do not believe that Britney would carry her baby out in full view of the helicopters that are flying over her home ... but I do think it's hilarious that she can bundle up a loaf of bread (or whatever), carry it around for prolly 10 minutes and then go inside and see the pictures of her baby already on the Internets. Loves it! OK! magazine will be out in a few days ... and then we may finally get our first look at baby Sean Preston ... or whatever his name is.

Yesterday, we saw what amazing style sense Kevin Federline enjoyed as a child ... today we marvel in his stunning scholastically academic accomplishments ... behold, K-Fed's credentials:

Okay, okay ... so a participation soccer certificate (which every kid on the team gets at the end of the season regardless of whether or not they played a single game) and a Little League certificate (from Pizza Hut, no less) do not constitute anything scholastic or academic ... but he did get his High School Equivalency Certificate and that's saying a lot. Sure he prolly ordered it from a 1-800 number on late night TV and sure he is now only qualified to only fill-out applications at a fast food restaurants ... but that didn't stop our dear Kevin. No sir ... he made something of himself ... with one squirt of semen he was able to secure his status as the father of Britney Spears' first-born son. You know what ... they don't even make a certificate for that!

Moving on ... SO while we wait to see if Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are pulling an elaborate PUNK'D prank on the entire world (did they get married ... or what is it all a ruse?) we find out that other celebrity marriages are falling apart faster than the elastic on Janet Jackson's underwear. First up, Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush have called it quits after only 5 months of wedded bliss:

Color me shocked ... nah, I'm just kidding ... but you can color me badd ... I knew that these 2 weren't destined for the long haul. Hello, they met on the set of The WB's One Tree Hill ... didn't any of you see this coming?!

In more upsetting news, we also found out that Kathy Griffin and her husband Matt are also headed for splitsville:

This news is definitely shocking ... Kathy and Matt looked so happy on her reality show on Bravo. This couple really came across as the kind that would last forever. It is sad news ... Kathy is the one who filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. She has requested that Matt be denied spousal support ... it sounds like it's a pretty bitter sitch. I'm sure they are doing what they need to do and I hope they both get thru it all OK.

Well, well, well, well ... who knew that Jake Gyllenhaal was a fan of Maroon 5? Here is our favorite pin-up boy backstage in San Francisco at a Maroon 5 concert:

It is my understanding that Jake is friends with Maroon 5's lead singer, Adam Levine. You may fantasize now. [via ONTD!]

Check out all the Hollywood "It" girl hotties at Club Element in LA earlier this week:

Kirsten Dunst is wearing the worst dress ever ... her boobies look ... wrong (Lindsay Lohan seems to agree). Y'all know that I love me some Hilary Duff but I don't think that I'm feeling those highly-reflective pants of hers. They look like they came from the wardrobe closet at the Michael Jackson Bad video shoot. It's all good ... I still love her. The cute chick with Hilary and Haylie is Hil's best friend Taylor. I got to meet her backstage when I met Hilary last month. She's a rad chick ... and she looks smokin' hot.

Here's another gaggle of celebs hanging out at Koi in LA:

Nicole Richie looks great ... I love how she rocks that scarf. Jesse Metcalfe looks ... well, the same ... but what is going on with Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock? Are they back together? It's so hard to keep up with who Pamela is dating ...

Aww, check out this cute picture of Gwyneth Paltrow and her baby Apple hanging out backstage at the Austin City Limits Festival this past weekend:

I love her pink headphones but little Apple should be enjoying Arcade Fire's set not be shielded from it. Now, at a Coldplay concert I would understand ... [via Achtung! Baby, thanks Juan]

Lindsay Lohan is never one to keep the same hairstyle for long ... it seems like she changes it hourly:

I don't mind the extensions ... I love her long hair look ... but it looks like she went back to blonde again ... NOOOOOO ... red, red, red ... get it in your head, head, head, Linds!

What the hell is Paula Abdul doing with this young man?

Apparently his name is Dante Spencer and he is a model for International Male ... um, is she really pulling a Demi Moore on us?

Here is what D'Angelo's car looked like after his car accident:

I am happy to report that he is doing fine and is ready to get back to work ... Rock on!

Pink has taken the time to hand write a letter for her fans:

She posted the letter on her official website. I'm not a big Pink fan (shocking, ain't it?) but I do like Carey Hart ... so if he's cool with her, I guess I can be too.

Fiona Apple is back on the scene and ready to take on the music world ... again ... we hope. Check out these awesome pictures from Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly magazines:

She looks great ... the pictures are awesome ... I cannot wait to hear how her album turned out ...

Ryan Gosling is a V Man:

I'm not sure what a V Man is exactly but ... I am taking a second look at the lad.

Mandy Moore is on the cover of the new issue of Lucky magazine:

The photoshoot is a bit boring ... but Mandy is cute ...

Charlize Theron is NOT boring in her photoshoot for Harper's Bazaar magazine:

But the clothes are ug-ly. Boo!

Reese Witherspoon looks all angelic and stuff in her recent picture spread in Entertainment Weekly magazine:

She looks pretty good for a dead chick.

Hmm ... now that we know that Laguna Beach's Kristin is way over Stephen ... we have to wonder how Stephen is occupying his time ... we know he ain't never gonna hook up with LC for real ... so I wonder who he's spending time with ...

... yeah, that sounds about right.

And finally, here are some pictures of our favorite faker on Laguna Beach -- Casey:

Did you watch Laguna last night? I wonder what exactly Casey said about Alex M. that caused all the drama ...

Les news:
So yesterday I met up with a Detroit writer, Robert, who was interviewing me for an article in URB magazine. We were supposed to meet up at OSLO to do our interview over sushi ... instead we had to drive out to Waterford so that he could return a pig costume ... yeah ... weird, I know ... we did the interview on the drive out there and then came back to Detroit for an awesome BBQ dinner at Slow's Bar B Q in Corktown (go to the Slow's website to see the pig costume in question). AMAZING food there ... Detroiters, get there ... it's so good. While we were there I was able to meet Pink reader Nancy who happens to be Robert's friend. She was fun ... I also ran into Uncle Grambo from It was really good to see him ... he's chilled out on the blogging lately so it was good to see him out and about.

It was the most bizaare interview that I've done so far ... and it was so fun. I can't wait to see how the story turns out.

Today ... I am packing and preparing for my New York trip ...

That said, while I am in NYC I will be on minimal blogging status. I still plan on blogging each day but the posts will be shorter (obvs) and may come at different times during the day. You may recall that I did this while I was in LA earlier this summer. I will do my best to post where I'll be while in the city ... so maybe some of you can come out and say Hello.

And with that ... I'm out.
