In recent months, COVID-19 survivor Pink has pledged a million dollars towards COVID relief, reposted Billie Eilish’s Instagram post in support of Black Lives Matter, memorialized Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and taken a stand with Planned Parenthood urging voters to call their senators and demand they not confirm a new Justice until after the inauguration. and last year she claimed that she told the NFL to kick rocks in support of Colin Kaepernick. It’s an Instagram BINGO for the Democratic ticket, but according to Us Weekly, her husband Carey Hart is a Republican. We know this because he just said so while defending his decision to post pictures of his 9-year-old daughter and 3-year-old son shooting rifles. But don’t worry! He hates Donald Trump almost as much as he loves guns so he’s voting for Joe Biden. Maybe this explains why Pink has been sporting that Kate Gosselin looking Republican mom haircut for so many years.
I don’t know about you, but I had a perfectly good and normal weekend curled up in a fetal position in the shower glugging down a bottle of special occasion “End Times” wine in between racking sobs. Basically, I didn’t do shit. But as Kristian mentioned earlier, quite a few celebrities spent the weekend out in the streets with Black Lives Matter, protesting police brutality, spurred by the recent murders of George Floyd and Breanna Taylor by the police. Some of them didn’t even post about it on social media, they just showed up! But many more took to their notes apps instead to express their solidarity with the BLM movement. Billie Eilish took aim at #AllLivesMatter types telling them to “shut the fuck up.” And Lady Gaga came for Donald Trump, accusing him of “fueling a system that is already rooted in racism.” And the always outspoken Pink!, well she just re-posted Billie’s post. But it’s the thought that counts! #thoughtsandprayers.
Pink took a break from slapping mommy shamers down to tell us that she tested positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago after experiencing symptoms along with her three-year-old son, Jameson. And she is now using the opportunity, via Instagram, to emphasize the importance of social distancing, while simultaneously checking her own privilege for being able to get access to testing. And now I really want to see video of Pink swinging upside down as someone stuck that nasal swab up her nostril.
Dolly Parton is, as always, pure perfection. Her love for all things shiny and tight, makes me miss the CMA red carpets of old. But of course, nostalgia is a big theme in country music, and the red carpet of this year’s CMA Awards is making me nostalgic as hell for a time before Hollywood muscled its way into Nashville and diluted its rugged charm with the likes of Gigi Hadid. WHY WAS SHE THERE?!
Poor Maroon 5. They may be the first choice for customer service on-hold music, but we all know they were never the first choice for the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show. The NFL and CBS really wanted Rihanna, but she turned them down, because she’s firmly on Team Kaep and couldn’t “be a sellout.” We also heard rumors that Cardi B backed out of talks for a halftime show appearance, which was allegedly due to how she felt about the NFL’s stance on anthem-kneeling. Two weeks ago it was revealed that Pink was also given a shot at the halftime show, and now we have her explanation for why she turned it down.
Ellen DeGeneres And Pink Have Joined Elton John In Defending Prince Harry And Duchess Meghan’s Use Of Private Jets
The hottest trend this summer is literal heat (thanks, climate change!). But coming in a close second is the recent trend of analyzing Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s private jet use. On one side are the haters who are side-eyeing their private flights. On the other side are famous people who are sticking up for Harry and Meghan and their right to fly private. Ellen DeGeneres and Pink are the latest famous people to jump on that bandwagon.
