I seriously don’t know the relationship status between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. I thought they were back together but I just can’t assume these things anymore. Last month Selena’s on/off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber landed a double cover of Teen Vogue, and now it’s her turn to grace the newsstands with her cover of InStyle.
But Selena’s won’t be the only face you see on the magazine shelves, here are June’s other cover stars:
Selena’s former BFF gets on the magazine action too as she cover’s the June issue of Company.
However, when it comes to former Disney child actresses none can compare to Miley Cyrus. She is this month’s cover megastar! Not only did she land a double cover for Elle UK but she also got three covers for V Magazine. It’s safe to say that we’ve all moved on from Cyrus’ Hannah Montana days as she is a bona fide high fashion darling.

If my parents let me, I would’ve put pink highlights in my hair after watching my first P!nk video. At a time when there was Britney Spears and people trying to be Britney Spears, P!nk brought (and still brings) a welcome rock bite to bubblegum pop. The “Just Give Me A Reason” singer always had a wild streak, and we’ve got the old school pics and clips to show it.
She knew she’d be famous
Alecia Beth Moore was born on September 8, 1979 outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to her dad, she loved singing around the house non-stop. He told Biography that when he’d ask her to be quiet, she said “Dad, I’m practicing. I’m gonna be a star some day!”
She was always tough
Don’t let that innocent smile fool you — by the time P!nk was 13 in 1992, she already started sneaking into clubs, had her first tattoo and her signature tongue piercing! Thanks to her military vet dad, she also knew how to break wrists if she had to.
She got her first gig by herself
When P!nk started writing songs at 14, she knew that wowing the crowd had to come next. She boldly made her own spotlight by walking up to the DJ at Philly’s Club Fever and asking him if she could belt between his set breaks. She blew everyone’s minds (duh) and got a regular gig on Friday nights.
She was in an R&B trio
In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. It’s time to catch up with our favourite starlets, drama queens and wannabees. This week, J-biebs shares the love on Valentine’s Day, One direction teases us with a new video and surprise, surprise, Kevin Federline may be in trouble.
HIT: One Direction goes Global with their new charity Single.
Okay Directioners, you’ve been waiting patiently and today, you can finally see the video for their new single, “One Way or Another (teenage Kicks)”. Last week, our favourite British boys teased us with a preview of their latest project. In this super cute music video, the boys find themselves monkeying around with kids from around the world. Adorable! All of the proceeds from the track will go to U.K. charity, Comic Relief’s annual fundraiser, Red Nose Day.
MISS: Chris Brown is caught hanging out with ex Karreuche Tran.
While RiRi was off in London for Fashion Week, the always charming Chris Brown may have had a little fun without her. According to Perez Hilton, Breezy and his ex, Karreuche Tran, arrived at last weekend’s NBA All Star weekend, but may have had a not-so-secret rendez-vous at the mansion Chris rented out! Karrueche supposedly Instagrammed a pic while at the mansion but later deleted it. Interesting….
P!nk’s definitely got bikini bod ready to go. In her ”The Truth About Love” tour, the singer shows off her sexy physic in a long-sleeved crop top and bedazled black pants. But seriously this picture makes me want to throw out the tubs of Ben & Jerry’s I’ve stashed in my freezer. Nah, maybe next week…
MISS: K-Fed joins the Tax Lien Club
Uncle Sam wants you, Federline. The D-list rapper,who has as much street cred as my Bubbie, apparently owes the IRS big! Brit-Brit’s baby daddy is just the latest celeb to join the Tax Lien Club! According to TMZ, The lien is for over $57,000 in tax payments Kevin missed in 2009 and 2010! I wonder if he’ll be releasing any more “chart topping” singles to help pay this off? Well there’s always K-Mart, K-Fed.
HIT: J-Biebs spreads the love on Valentine’s Day.
This Canadian heart-throb had plenty of love to share on cupid’s holiday. “The As Long As You Love Me” singer tweeted: “U should know you are beautiful. Happy Valentine’s Day.” Awwh thanks Biebs!! But who are we kidding, this tweet was clearly directed to ex Selena Gomez. If you were my boyfriend, Bieber, I’d never let you go! LOL!
MISS: Oscar Pistorius hits the courtroom
The paralympian appeared before a judge in Pretoria, South Africa after he allegedly murdered his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Save the waterworks, Pistorius. After he was charged with one count of murder, all he did was cry. Pistorius claims that he shot the supermodel because he thought she was an intruder. Police aren’t buying it because the athlete’s been charged with “previous allegations of a domestic nature.”
We were all rooting for you, Pistorius! Why did you have to let us down? RIP Reeva
“Scenic Cold” (Katy Perry x Beirut) – Rostam
My favourite mashups are the ones you would never expect. Jay-Z and Linkin Park, Gotye and Avicii, and now pop princess Katy Perry and indie folk band Beirut. Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, who occasionally produces his own projects on the side under the name ROSTAM, mashed Katy Perry’s “Hot n’ Cold” and Beirut’s “Scenic World” together, which (as weird as the two choices are,) blends perfectly together.
“Here With Me” – The Killers
Will we ever get tired of The Killers foraying deeper into the world of darker imagery and eerie videos? NO. So here is their new video, directed by non other than Mr. Tim Burton himself! Strap yourselves in, ladies and gentlemen, you’re in for a ride. Pretty much, a young boy falls in love with a beautiful actress (played with Winona Ryder), steals a lifesize doll of her, takes the doll places with him as his girlfriend, and then in the end the doll becomes real and the boy and Winona eat dinner together with their heads on fire. Classic Tim Burton.
What she’ wearing: Pink wore a stunning bronze/taupe sleeveless leather and chiffon Catherine Deane gown at the American Music Awards.
Why we love it: What a great night for Pink, not only did she score major points with the dress, but her performance of “Try” wins all the awards! (Now would be a perfect time to go watch her performance, just make sure to come back to this page when you’re done.) The leather fabric adds some shine to the bodice giving it a cool metallic effect, plus the detailed cutouts create a stunning pattern that gives this look an edge. The feminine full-length pleated chiffon skirt contrasts the edgy top and elongates Pink’s body. All-in-all a standout look from many of the red carpet styles at the AMAs.*
Takeaway: Leather fabrics can come in multiple colours so try to choose one that’s the most versatile and compatible with your wardrobe, since leather can be quite expensive.
*As you probably know the American Music Awards happened this past weekend and there was a plethora of really well dressed celebrities in attendance. So as to not make this list dominated by AMA attendees I chose to highlight only one look, but here are two of my other favs from the night: Taylor Swift and The Wanted.
What she’s wearing: Stone was photographed wearing Burberry Prorsum, consisting of a belted navy peplum bustier top paired with a green sequin pencil skirt, at the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in N.Y.C.
Why we love it: Stone looks festive in sparkles and it’s hard not to notice her in this outfit. It feels refreshing to see a sequined skirt and not a top. The two fabrics (sequin and satin) seem to compliment each other when paired together plus navy and emerald green are a colour combo not often seen on the red carpet. The black waistband provides some contrast while accentuating Stone’s waist and creating that popular peplum effect.
Takeaway: Sequins can be fun but can be hard to incorporate into your everyday wardrobe. Save sequins for nights out or special events as opposed to daywear since little girls and fairy princesses tend to enjoy sequins all day round.

Inspiration: First Lady Michelle Obama, Emma Stone, Ann Romney
You know a trend has found its roots when the wives of two presidential candidates are both wearing pink and it wasn’t even a Wednesday. AND just a day before, current it girl, Emma Stone, was wearing a bright pink dress at Elle’s Women in Hollywood party. If THAT wasn’t enough for you, when Jessica Biel got hitched to Justin Timberlake, she wore a blushing pink wedding dress.
So, how do we even wear such a bright hue? My best advice is: wear it with confidence. It only looks ridiculous if you think it does. Unfortunately, confidence is sometimes hard to come by. In order to build this confidence, treat pink like any other neon colour: start small by matching pink accessories to whatever you wear. Most importantly, pink is an exciting colour so remember to HAVE FUN!
TREND: polka dots
Inspiration: Taylor Swift on The View
Last summer, I had a bit of a shocking revelation when I was riding the bus back home after a trip to Ikea. I realized that the boxes I just bought, my skirt and my nails were covered in polka dots. Since then, I’ve been trying to cool it with the dots because, let’s face it, I’m not Zooey Deschanel.
Unfortunately, it’s been really hard to get off this kick. Between Marc Jacobs’ fragrance Dot and The Sartorialist‘s polka dot street style shots, I can’t stop myself but want more dotted pieces. So, you know what? Let me at ‘em! They’re fun, they’re flirty and most of all, they are (this week’s theme) F. U. N. Fun!
WTF: Chanel’s Hula Hoop bag
Imagination plays a huge part in fashion, and as a result, there are a number of outstanding collections that are more art pieces than ready-to-wear clothes. What kills me, though, when designers try to sell insanely bizarre objects as the world’s most practical accessory. Case in point: Chanel’s hula hoop bag. According to designer Karl Lagerfeld, it would be the perfect beach bag because you can drape everything on it. It might’ve been useful if I couldn’t picture myself tripping over it, or crying because the white fabric got all dirt stained. Not to mention, it’s just a tad ridiculous and a little too over-the-top for the beach.
Pink’s new music video for “Try” is a stunningly choreographed and emotional journey into a passionate relationship. The aggressive contemporary dance only highlights the primal basis of the lyrics. She sings in the chorus: “Where there is desire/ There is gonna be a flame/ Where there is a flame/ Someone’s bound to get burned/ But just because it burns/ Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die/ You’ve gotta get up and try try try.”
I never knew pink was such a strong dancer, though she’s always seemed like a very physical, movement-based singer.
Besides the artistic element of this video, I love Pink’s colourful look. Her blonde hair is highlighted with streaks of blue and yellow, and her sheer dress floats when she moves.
The track is from her new album The Truth About Love, which is available on iTunes now.
Watch it here:
No Doubt had a great surprise last night during a show in Las Vegas.
Playing to a massive crowd at the iHeartRadio Festival, No Doubt’s frontwoman Gwen Stefani invited fellow singer P!nk! on the stage to sing with the band.
Closing their set with the band’s classic hit ”I’m Just a Girl”, P!nk! came out mid-song and playfully did some push-ups as Stefani greeted her with a peck on the cheek. And as the two singers jumped around the stage belting along to the song’s verses, the crowd just knew that they had witnessed something amazing in person.
With No Doubt’s comeback album about to come out on September 25, this just makes me even more excited.
Pink tribute artist Zoe Alexander loves her day job but decided to audition for The X-Factor UK to discover her own sound and identity. Her audition was going pretty well — she was chirpy and the judges loved her style. However, the panel thought her cover of Pink’s “So What” was too close to the original and gave her a second chance to put her own spin on a different song.
Unfortunately, Alexander blew her second song but didn’t take too kindly to the constructive criticism the judges gave her. Although they all voted no, they told her she could become a better artist if she took some time to discover her own sound. That’s when the tantrum started. Alexander was completely unprofessional. She not only fired off a false excuse (“You guys told me to sing Pink”) she abrasively threw her microphone offstage and pushed away a camera crew.
For some reason her dad decided to drag her back on stage (perhaps so she could apologize) but all girl did was swear, swear, swear. If the judges weren’t already confident in their decision I’m pretty sure Alexander’s bad attitude sealed it.
Watch it here:
Pink has never looked happier than at the red carpet with her husband, Carey Hart and 5-month-old daughter, Willow.
US Magazine posted photos of the happy family as they attended the premiere of the animated movie Happy Feet 2, which Pink lends her voice to. It stars a ton of other actors and sings including Elijah Wood, Sofia Vergara of Modern Family, Robin Williams and rapper Common.
At the event, Pink told reporters to help her baby stop crying, she sings her song “So What?”. The 31-year-old mom says she wants to have lots and lots of other babies with her husband.
If you’re a fan of penguins, dancing, and Pink (never really thought it was possible for a movie to showcase all of those at the same time…), then you’d better be heading to the movies on November 18th for the release of Happy Feet 2 in 3D!
The movie not only features star singer Pink in the movie as Gloria, but it even features her vocals on multiple songs from the soundtrack, highlighted by a song of her own, Bridge of Light.
This song works perfectly for a movie because the instrumental aspects of it are very moving with simple lyrics to display emotions. Lyrically, the song isn’t the strongest, but when you take into consideration that it’s part of the soundtrack of Happy Feet 2, it kind of makes sense.
The song talks about how even in the darkest situations all you need is love to build a bridge of light. So if you’re in the kind of mood that only a bridge of light could solve, be sure to give it a listen.
Pink, the pop mega-star, and Dallas Green from City & Colour (R.I.P. Alexisonfire) joined forces at the Orpheum in Los Angeles on Thursday night. It was a collaboration that was inevitable.
Okay, maybe not. But, it’s result is something eargasmic. The two performed a haunting duet of Green’s ‘What Makes A Man’ from his 2008 Bring Me Your Love album.
Pink harmonized perfectly, with just the right amount of raspy deliverance. Green later called the collab “best moment of my life,” on his Twitter. She shared her own Twitter love for City & Colour back in January 2010, after seeing one of his shows.
Looks like Green’s decision to leave Alexisonfire in August to pursue City and Colour full-time wasn’t a bad decision.
Pink has given birth to a baby girl, reports Billboard.
The pop singer had the baby with her husband, motocrosser Carey Hart.
Confirming it on Thursday via Twitter, as all celebs do, Pink shared that she’s given birth to a “happy baby girl.” This is the first child for the couple, who were married in 2006.
“We are ecstatic to welcome our new beautiful healthy happy baby girl, Willow Sage Hart. She’s gorgeous, just like her daddy. #beyondblessed,” Pink tweeted.
Unlike many celebrity baby names, I really like the name Willow. It’s different, but not obscene or obnoxious (I’m talking to you, Apple or Suri.)
Pink confirmed her pregnant last November on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ sharing:
“My mom has always wished me a daughter just like me,” said Pink. “I’m terrified. One of us will go to jail.”
Congrats to the couple, I think Pink is going to be such a cool mom. Can she adopt me?
Pink has slammed 18-year-old pop star Selena Gomez for painting a horse fuchsia during filming of her latest music video, reports CTV.
Pink, who is a huge supporter and campaigner for PETA, lashed out at the young singer after she was spotted filming a clip for her new video ‘I Love You Like A Love Song’ on a Malibu beach with several brightly-painted creatures.
Writing on her twitter feed , Pink said: “If there are any animal activists around Malibu – at Leo Cabrillo State Beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame.”
“Artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions.”
“whether u r a fan of mine or whomEVER’S, i won’t stop speaking out about animal cruelty. i’ve taken responsibility in the past,so should she.(sic)”
However, a representative for Selena’s record company has insisted no animals were harmed during the filming of the video. Gomez’s spokesperson said in a statement: “It was important to the Production Company, Record Label and Ms. Gomez that no animals were harmed and all proper precautions were taken.”
“A non toxic, vegetable based powder paint was applied via an airbrush and removed with water. An official from the Humane Society was on set supervising.”
It’s not so much the physical harm to the horses but the emotional harm – I highly doubt they want to be painted fuchsia. That’s cruelty in itself. I respect Pink for all she does with animal activism – but do you think she went a little overboard with this comment?

The great thing about today’s technology is that it can be combined with charity efforts on a global scale. I think this is a great cause and great concept – iTunes is one of the hottest markets right now, so why not use it for good? I know many young people who don’t exactly have the money to donate, but I’m pretty sure we all have money on our iTunes account, so this little bit can help in a major way.
With P!nk pregnant, she is now thinking about the next steps of motherhood. She took to Twitter while attending a kids Christmas recital to explain she maybe becoming a soccer mom.
“I just watched about 20 3 yr olds in their 1st holiday recital.My heart hurts it was so damn adorable.I’m gonna b a soccer mom aren’t I?shit”
A source tells Us Weekly that Pink and her husband Carey Hart are expecting their first child. “She wanted to do it between tours, when she has some time off,” the insider revealed.
The Us source says, “Pink was determined to make the relationship solid. Now she’s really happy, and she’s excited she got pregnant so fast! She’ll be a brilliant mother.”
Following the big fall Pink took on stage during an aerial stunt on stage in Nuremberg, Germany Thursday night, the singer is determined to perform on Friday, reports People.com.
Pink was flung off the stage and slammed into a steel barrier. Following the fall she got back on stage, apologized to her fans, and was rushed to hospital. Although she didn’t sustain any injuries, according to what her husband, Carey Hart, tweeted she was “super banged up.”
Pink took to Twitter herself to tell her fans that she’ll be performing in Salem, Germany on Friday, tweeting, “Full steam ahead people. no pain, no gain. or is it no brain, no pain? either way, i will be on that stage, even if i have to crawl.”
She also tweeted “a HUMONGOUS thank you to everyone who sent their love and concern.”
The Irish rockers were also the top touring act of the year, selling 1.3 million tickets for the 20 shows on their 360 Degree world tour. The tour – still ongoing – is the most expensive one in history.
According to Perez Hilton, singer Pink made her opinion public on who should be awarded Grammy of the Year and she chose no other than the infamous Lady GaGa. Pink was quoted on Perez Hilton.com speaking only praise and admiration for the pop star.
“I think I’d have to go with Lady Gaga because she really, really just took over this year. She was everywhere. She’s fearless when it comes to fashion and videos and I think a lot of other people play it really safe. I think she’s been a total breath of fresh air. I love her videos. In some ways I think she’s the most interesting without seeming to try to hard since Madonna. I think I’m able to like her because I don’t see any of myself in her. And for a while, I think, after Missundaztood came out, it was like, “Oh, everybody wants to be a rock star now.” But with her, I don’t know, I think she’s marching to the beat of her own drum. And I really, really like that,” said Pink.
