Home Is Where The <3 Is

Wassup, wassup?! I am back home in Detroit Rock City and let me tell you ... it's nice to be back in town. Sure, I've only been away for little over 3 weeks but I guess I did miss it more than I thought. Let's get to the day's goss ...

Here are a few more pictures from Kevin Federline's video shoot in Las Vegas last weekend. As you may recall, Spederline packed up their car and drove out to Vegas to shoot K-Fed's first video for his song Lose Yourself. Check out these totally dope pics of The Federline doing his thang:

LOL! Just when I thought that aging porn star Ron Jeremy couldn't sink any lower he goes and shows up in a Kevin Federline video. Ah ... the deep, dark pit of desperation takes another soul. At any rate, it should come as no surprise that I am very anxious to see how this video turns out. I am also very anxious to see K-Fed perform in public as he is scheduled to do later on this month at the Teen Choice Awards. Something tells me that Kevin's rap skillz are gonna be less like Calvin Broadus and more like Robert Van Winkle. [Source]

Maggie Gyllenhaal and her baby daddy Peter Sarsgaard were on hand for the premiere of the new Oliver Stone movie World Trade Center in NYC yesterday ... here are a couple pictures of the soon-to-be parents on the red carpet:

Maggie looks like she's glowing ... and by that I mean she looks like she's ready to explode that baby all over the place. Isn't she due by September? Anyways, I have to admit that while I had zero interest in seeing the movie United 93, I am very intrigued by World Trade Center. I'm not even a huge Nicolas Cage fan (well, other than National Treasure [don't ask why], I really don't like any of his movies) but there is something about this movie that has me interested. Maybe I'm just a sucker for their new marketing campaign? Who knows ... but this is one movie I plan to check out. [Source]

Yay! Victoria Beckham heard my prayers! Her new short haircut is a thing of the past again ... Posh decided to get new extensions put back in:

I really think the longer hair is a much better look for her. Now we won't be distracted by her protruding neck bones and we can focus on other parts of her emaciated anatomy to comment on. [Source]

Speaking of the lady Beckham, her hubby David Beckham is hard at work training for the next soccer season with his team mates in Real Madrid ... let's peek in on the lads to see how things are coming along:

So precious. If this much lurve is happening on the field in plain sight can you imagine all the shenanigans that take place behind closed locker room doors? Le sigh. [Source]

BOO! Ashlee Simpson is reverting back to her old, fugly ways. It's like, she looks good for about 15 minutes and then has to go back to lookin' gross again ... I wonder what's up with that? Here are new pictures of Ashlee's new look:

Who dresses her? They must hate her or something. Ashlee is turning into Mischa Barton more and more each day. She needs to go back to her Jessica Simpson look before she starts looking any worse. [Source, Source]

Hmmm ... Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn haven't been seen together in quite some time ... I wonder if there is something amiss with those two? Perhaps they aren't spending time together because Jennifer has a new love in her life?

Jen was spotted hugging up on this new love on her balcony recently. Has she finally found true love? [Source]

Awww ... check out these really cute pictures of Evangeline Lilly and Dominic Monaghan spending a little vacation time with one another in Seville, Spain:

While they make a really cute couple, it's still weird to see Lost's Kate and Charlie lovin' up on each other. I might've had something snarky to say about Dom's Member's Only jacket but I find that I'm a little distracted by his nip slip. Monalilly look so happy and content ... shouldn't they be married, divorced and reconciled by now? [Source, Source]

Avril Lavigne is such a big girl now ... she no longer has to steal her mother's make-up in order to play dress-up ... now she can afford her own cosmetics. Here are a few pictures of Avril playing with her new stuff from Chanel:

Despite the fact that Avril is an old married millionairess, she still looks like a perpetual child to me. I can't wait until this kid is knocked up with a kid of her own ... then maybe she'll look a little more mature ... like a pregnant teenager. [Source]

Jenna Jameson and her voluptuous boobs have been immortalized in wax at Madam Tussaud's Wax Museum in Las Vegas (of course). She is the first porn star to be made into a wax statue by Madam Tussaud's ... here is a cute picture of Jenna and her topless doppelganger:

Jenna Jameson, the adult film superstar and pop culture icon, was immortalized in wax today at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. Ms. Jameson, a Las Vegas native, unveiled her life-sized wax figure during a special ceremony at Madame Tussauds on the Las Vegas Strip. The partially nude, interactive figure portrays Ms. Jameson kneeling on a bearskin rug and displays all of her well-known tattoos. She also wears her original "Jenna" black leather belt with her name in rhinestones. "This is an awesome honor," Ms. Jameson said after the unveiling, "especially since I'm making history as the first personality from the adult world to have an attraction at Madame Tussauds, and it is happening in Las Vegas, my hometown. I was so excited when asked to be part of Madame Tussauds incredible collection and even more excited to see my figure .... it looks so real!" Like all Madame Tussauds interactive figures, visitors can pose for photographs with Ms. Jameson and when you tickle the tattoo on her right ankle, she whispers a personal message. The likeness is pretty striking. I understand the real Jenna Jameson is pretty interactive as well. Altho, you have to tickle her somewhere else BESIDES the tattoo on her ankle to get interactive with her. [thanks Perrie]

Jared Leto has taken his rockstar persona to new heights ... and has managed to cultivate a huge following ...

... you just know that Keanu Reeves and his band Dogstar are really super jealous. [Source]

Melanie Griffith thinks she is a cool mom ...

... and she is very wrong. In fact, these pictures of her, not only smoking with but lighting up her daughter Dakota Johnson's cigarette, prove that she is a moron. [Source]

Here are a few sketches of the tour costumes that Mariah Carey will be wearing on the upcoming US leg of her Adventures of Mimi tour:

These sleek costumes look great in these sketches ... but we all know that Mariah is a wee bit more curvy than these sketches portray her. I can't wait to see how these outfits look in real life. [Source]

I've said it before and I'll say it again ... I love Dolce & Gabbana ads ... here are a few pictures from their new fall campaign:

Looks like they're jumping on the Marie Antoinette bandwagon early so they can capitalize on the Sofia Coppola movie that is due out at the end of this year. Shiny nekkid men can be sexy. [Source]

Are y'all ready for this Sunday night's premiere of the second season of Flavor of Love on VH1? For some strange reason, the winner of the first season of FOV, Miss Hoopz, opted out of a romance with Flava Flav so he has gathered together a new bunch of chicks to vie for his affections:

If THIS preview video is any indication of what's in store for this new season, I know I'm gonna be watching each and every week! [Source]

And finally, Pink reader Jennifer sends in these pictures of her wearing her Pink is the new Blog t-shirt in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam:

I am utterly amazed at where the PITNB t-shirts show up in the world. Thank you so much Jennifer for sending in the pictures! XO [thanks Jennifer]

The News:
Yay! I'm back home for the weekend and I'm really excited to see my friends again. I know I've only been away for a few weeks but arriving at my parent's house was comforting. I had a hard time falling asleep because I'm on Pacific Time still but as I laid in my bed, it felt as if I had never left. Anyways, my flight was fairly uneventful ... but I am reading the new book The Ruins by Scott Smith (author of A Simple Plan) and am really loving it. The book promises to be really scary and I can totally see where it's going ... to a bad, bad place. I can't help but think about the new horror flick The Descent as I read this book. They're not really similar at all but the characters keep getting deeper and deeper into trouble and you just know things aren't going to end well. I'm reading a couple new books and am listening to new music as well ... I'll have to update my links on the sidebar someday soon.

David is flying into Detroit in a couple of hours so I need to get ready and pick him up.

It's great to be home, y'all! I'm out.
