I am just stunned by what Pink is the new Blog has become in just 2 short years. You can read the first Pink posts from its first day of existence HERE (believe me, they're embarrassing and not very interesting to read) to see how far this blog has come.
Interestingly enough, it was the beginning of June 2004 when I contend that Britney Spears began her downward spiral from pop superstardom to the depths of trashy insanity. It has only been recently that we've begun to see little tiny glimmers of hope that Britney might be on her way to recovery. But, it was back on June 9, 2004 that Britney began her fall from grace. On June 9th, she began filming the video for Outrageous (which was to be the 4th single from her In The Zone album, with a cameo by Snoop Dogg and which was going to be the theme song to the movie Catwoman) and showed the world how amazing she looked in her trenchcoat and her underwear (do y'all even remember that she used to be hot all the time?) ... tragically, Brit severely hurt her knee during a dance routine while filming the video ... it was this moment that changed the course of her life forever:
Because Britney critically injured her knee she was forced to cancel plans for the video (thereby ensuring that she would not enjoy a summer pop hit that year) and cancel her world tour (which was, essentially, the entire second leg of her tour). It was also during this fragile time when she found herself in a very vulnerable position ... so much so that she fell under the sway of a down-and-out back up dancer who happened to be in her life at the perfect time ... for him ... for Kevin Federline. While she nursed her damaged knee (fearing she may never get to dance again), K-Fed was there to nurture her and worm his way into her life. The rest, ladies and gentlemen, is history. We all know what came of their relationship (a marriage, a baby and countless trashy misadventures) because we've spent the last 2 years chronicling the ramifications that sprung from that one incident back in June of 2004.
If only she didn't hurt her knee ... if only she were still with Justin Timberlake when the accident occurred ... if only K-Fed's parents believed in birth control ... well, who knows how her life might've turned out.
What a crazy 2 years it's been, y'all ... I can't wait to see what the future holds from here on out.
And so, for today, I'm sending out lots of Birthday Lurve to all the Pink is the new Blog readers out there!! XOXO
I'm sure y'all are still enjoying those pictures of Kevin Federline, all gussied up and tryin' to look purdy, for the June issue of Item magazine that I posted yesterday afternoon. Today we have our first look at K-Fed on the cover of that magazine:
I still don't understand the logic behind dressing up The Federline to look like a smarmy used car salesman in order to promote his debut rap album. Item reports that his joint (titled Playing With Fire) is set to drop in August and the one thing that Kevin wants more than anything is to talk about it: "I wish people would ask me about my career. Usually it's, 'How's the wife and kids?' Not that I mind; that's my pride and joy. But it would be nice for people to look at me like an artist. The day they judge me as an artist, a CEO, as somebody, not Britney Spears' husband, that's the day I am looking forward to." Dude, that's the day that hell freezes over ... or that Kimberly Stewart gets hot. [Source, thanks Lindsay]
Here is your first look at Gwen Stefani since she gave birth to her first child Kingston James McGregor:
This picture of a happy-looking Gwen was taken just a couple of days ago. Hubby and proud daddy Gavin Rossdale posted a message on the Institute messageboard thanking all the fans for their love and support: "Thanks. I just got back from the hospital. Thanks for all your good words. He's something else. All is good. Kingston is good, so's his mum (mom). Life stood still for us today. Now we're really on our way. Al the best. I'll be back soon. Watch this space. But give us a minute. Have a weekend of fireworks. Gavin X" Yay! Now all we need is a picture of little Kingston ... hopefully, we won't have to wait very long. [Source]
It appears that pictures from the Spider-Man 3 set are coming out every day ... well, for this week at least -- here are a few more pictures of Spider-Man in action:
For the Spider-Man-challenged, the New York Post provides a handy guide to the upcoming Spider-Man 3. I know I have this deep-seated-hatred-thing about spandex (especially when it is worn so horribly by Jake Gyllenhaal) but I tend to overlook those feelings when it comes to bulge-enhancing superhero costumes. No wonder I loved Batman Begins and X-Men: The Last Stand so much ... and why I'm so much looking forward to Superman Returns. What do you suppose that says about me? [Source]
Speaking of spandex, here is a picture of Carson Daly sportin' the skin tight stuff while out for a bike ride along Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway earlier this week:
I still don't like it but he is wearing it better than Jakey poo did ... UGH! What am I saying? I must be missing my David something awful! [Source]
Jude Law and Sienna Miller are spending every waking moment they have gettin' all cozy and lovey dovey. Here are pictures of the pair trying to sneak off to a resort together in the hopes that they can continue the rekindling of their romance without being spied upon:
Nice try ... but they're not fooling anyone. [Source]
Beach season is surely upon us all ... well, in California anyways ... here are pictures of Nicole Richie's latest visit to the beach to show off her new bikini:
She sure looks happy to be showing off her new hips. She looks great! Woot! [Source]
Pink reader Jen noticed something very interesting ... check out these pictures of Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton wearing the same shirt on different days earlier this week:
Even tho the girls have revealed that they hate one another it appears that they still have the same taste in clothing ... bad taste, that is. [Source, Source]
Adam Brody and his band Big Japan played a set at the 2006 Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington earlier this week ... check out this pic of Adam on the drums:
Hmmm ... normally I'm not a fan of actors who think they're rockstars (I'm talking to YOU Russell Crowe) but there is something about Adam behind that drum kit that is very appealing. Click HERE to check out Big Japan's My Space profile. [Source]
Even tho Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen are locked in a bitter divorce dispute it appears that both parents are doing their best to spend as much quality time with their children as they can. Check out these pictures of Denise and Charlie each spending some alone-time with their daughter Sam:
I feel so bad for little Sam and Lola (who turns 1 years old today). I know I joke about celebrity break-ups all the time but it is really sad when there are children involved. Here's hoping the Richards-Sheen children don't get all screwed up because of the bitter feud between their parents. [Source, Source]
Josh Holloway is on the cover of this month's issue of Details magazine. Here are a few pictures from his photoshoot for the mag:
I think there must be a clause in his contract that insists he be photographed wet at least once in every photospread. Hey, I don't mind ... I'm a new Team Sawyer convert! Woot! [Source]
We're just a few short weeks away from the release of Superman Returns, here are a few international posters from the UK, China and Germany:
Don't ya just love a man in uniform? Wee! [Source]
Here is the official photo for Mariah Carey's upcoming tour:
Only a diva like Mimi would give her tour a name like Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, The Hits, The Tour. LOL! Not even Queen Madonna is that pretentious (having simply dubbed her tour The Confessions Tour). I may just have to see what Mariah has in store for her fans this time around. [Source]
And finally, here are few more screencaptures from the MTV2 animated series Where My Dogs At? which feature one of our favorite Hollywood "It" Girls, Lindsay Lohan:
I am so excited for this show ... from what I've been able to preview, it looks ridiculously hilarious. Where My Dogs At? debuts after the season premiere of Celebrity Deathmatch on MTV2 beginning June 10 at 12pm. [Source]
