Reports estimate that the California wildfires are only about 35 to 40% contained, with some evacuees able to return home. The lucky ones get to come home to houses that still look like houses instead of still-smoking charred remains. TMZ says that the Woolsey wildfires forced Pink and her husband Carey Hart out of their Malibu home a few days ago, and they’ve since been able to return. And after returning, Carey has formed a neighborhood militia that will shoot anyone trying to loot his neighborhood.
Pink’s Beautiful Trauma tour was scheduled to perform eight shows in Sydney at the beginning of August, but she’s had to cancel a few of them due to a gastric virus. The only problem is, those same ticket-holders have also been skeptical about Pink’s reason for bailing. Some think Pink has been playing hooky with her kids at the beach.
People’s annual Most Beautiful People issue has been around since 1990, and it’s gone through a couple changes over the years. It began as The 50 Most Beautiful People in the World, and then turned into The 100 Most Beautiful People in 2006, because beautiful people were clearly multiplying like bacteria after James Blunt informed them of their beauty in 2005.
But this year People decided to switch the superficial focus from beautiful faces (sorry, five-time cover girl Julia Roberts) to people who are “gorgeous and inspiring” with their first ever The Beautiful Issue. I can assume this inner-beauty theme won’t apply to the annual Sexiest Man Alive issue; Sexiest Man on the Inside sounds like a magazine you’d find in the waiting room of a colonoscopy clinic.
Much like many people this time of year, Pink has been fighting against the flu for the past few days. But unlike everyone else, Pink was booked to belt out the national anthem at the Super Bowl in Minneapolis last night. Unfortunately Pink wasn’t better by the time she was supposed to hit the field and Star Spangled Banner-ed the house down. So Pink performed sick. And I lost $20, because she didn’t do it while clutching a bottle of Tylenol and an electric blanket.
Grammy chief Neil Portnow, who looks like he has the musical taste of Tuscon, Arizona actuary, made a few girls cry with his mean comments about women needing to “step up” if they wanted to win Grammys and have nice executive jobs in the music industry. Well, he’s sorry, ok?
But of course this could only be Lady Gaga. While others might think, “You know, maybe this year I’ll walk up the red carpet in a piece that makes it looks like I’m trying to cover up all the hair I lost after leaving my at-home highlighting kit on for too long,” Lady Gaga goes out and does it. She tells her stylist to make her look like a 73-year-old balding hippie who refuses to face the music about their hair situation, and she wears it with pride! As for her outfit, well that’s another story all together.
