A fan’s moving letter saved Pink from quitting pop

Posted by:

Pink

Pink has vowed never to quit making music, after hearing how her songs helped a young fan get through a harrowing rape ordeal.

The Trouble singer admits she was once so emotionally pained that she came close to turning her back on her music career altogether.

But she was spurred on to continue when she received a letter from a 13-year-old devotee telling the story of how she was sexually abused by her grandfather following the death of her mother.

The fan, who revealed that her grandfather had also frequently raped her mom, wrote to Pink urging her to never turn her back on her music – because her songs gave the girl a reason to live.

Pink recalls, “I remember being in Paris and talking about my childhood, my parents divorcing and I started crying during an interview. I thought I was over music and I couldn’t take any more. But then, not long after, I got a letter from this girl saying her grandfather was raping her. I get chills even talking about it. I have 50 of the most insanely awful letters that remind me that this job isn’t about me.”

And Pink insists she isn’t fazed by critics who blast her for her songs’ subject matters.

She adds: “It’s crazy. Some people may say the new songs are heartache bulls**t but somebody out there is going to get through their pain a little easier, and that makes me feel better.”

Jennifer Lopez remembers her pregnancy with perfect pictures

Posted by:

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez will always have a keepsake of the time she was pregnant with twins Max and Emme – she commissioned a photographer to capture her and husband Marc Anthony as expectant parents.

The singer/actress has put together a book of professional photos taken just two weeks before she became a mum for the first time in February. And she loves her look in the pictures: “I felt very womanly. Marc was in a dream. He loved it (shoot).”

And, in a new interview for Elle magazine, Lopez reveals she insisted on a little ‘me’ time after touring with Anthony while pregnant.

She explains, “We came off tour and I said, ‘I did the superwoman thing, I finished the tour – now I need you to take care of me. I love doing things for you; if I’m not cooking, then I’m picking out a shirt. But this is the first time in my life where I’m just going to be a little bit selfish.’ I said, ‘I don’t know if I’m going to have kids again, so I want it to be a beautiful experience. I don’t want to have any drama. I want to just be smiling every day.’”

Jessica Alba & Cash Warren get political

Posted by:

Jessica Alba & Cash Warren

Jessica Alba and husband, Cash Warren, are notoriously private when it comes to their personal lives. But when the new parents took their first family trip to Denver, Colo., to be part of the democratic national convention, the experience had a moving effect on the couple. In his blog, Mr. Alba shares his experience with the candidates and reveals some sweet details about life with his new baby daughter, Honor Marie.

“This was our first trip as a family,” Cash writes. “As always, we arrived at the airport way too close to our departure time so it was hectic. It’s always nerve wracking for new parents to fly with their child because you never know if you’re going to ruin everyone else’s flight with a screaming baby. (To date, Honor has been a great baby. Rarely crying. Opting to express herself through simple Haikus or interpretive dance instead…Yeah right. My girl’s got opinions. Lol.)”

Cash describes listening to Bill Clinton speak “like seeing a HOF (Hall of Fame) athlete return to their sport.”

Of hearing Barack Obama’s speech, Cash says it made him “remember why I love being part of the world in this day and age. I have been to Superbowls, NBA championships, Academy Awards, etc., but none of them compare to what it was like sitting inside of Invesco Field that day. I will remember this day for the rest of my life.”
