Sideshow: Pink on beauty, joy, and a slit neck

Posted: February 06, 2013

Someday Doylestown will be renamed Pinklestown after her finest daughter, Pink ( Alecia Beth Moore), who has moved more than 40 mil LPs since her 2000 debut, Can't Take Me Home. Independent to the end, Pink, 33, says she's no slave to the concept of beauty.

"I was always considered butch. Feeling beautiful to me is when I feel good in my leather pants and my husband grabs my [derriere]," she tells Redbook. "Or when . . . my daughter runs to me with complete joy. Beautiful has never been my goal. Joy is my goal."

Pink tells the mag she worked hard to win back her hub, motocross racer Carey Hart, after nearly losing him to divorce in '08.

"I had made him a photo album of all the . . . photos of our entire relationship. I spent months on [it]," she says. "On the last page, I pasted a photo of me from a really bad movie . . . with my neck slit and blood everywhere. Next to it I wrote, 'This is me without you.' "

Oceans of trouble for Chris

The Chris Brown/ Frank Ocean fracas gets weirder! On Jan. 27, the two had a fight over a parking space in West Hollywood; Frank says Chris punched him and made gay slurs. Now Frank's saying Chris threatened to shoot him. Whaaaa . . .? Prosecutors want to revoke Chris' probation on, yep, his conviction for beating singer Rihanna in 2009. (They seem to be back dating.) And this report is part of their motion. Frank says Chris threatened to "bust" (as in "bust a cap in") Frank. Chris might revisit the hoosegow anyway, for shirking the 180 days of community service in his probation terms.


Super and not-so-super ads

Regarding the Super Bowl ads:

(1) That hurl-worthy ad, in which gutbucklingly gorgeous Bar Refaeli deeply and reciprocally and orally mouth-massages supra-geek Jesse Heiman, is immoral, unbelievable, unconscionable - and took 60 takes!! Get that image out of our heads!!!

(2) How great is it that radio guy Paul Harvey, who punched his time card in 2009 at age 90, had the most-talked-about ad, for Dodge Ram trucks? Art photos of farm work fronted a compressed version of Paul's 1978 "So God Made a Farmer" speech to the Future Farmers of America Convention. Schmaltz, yes, but moving. It rocketed #PaulHarvey near the top of Twitter's trending topics. A very similar ad, for, has been on YouTube since 2011.

Celebrity book notes

Time for Renée Zellweger to dust off her impressive English accent: Bridget Jones' creator, Helen Fielding, will resurrect her neurotic heroine for a third book. No title; no word on a film version or if Renée would star in it.

The first book for Johnny Depp's new imprint, Infinitum Nihil (cheerful, that), is a previously unpublished novel by the great, late folksinger Woody Guthrie titled House of Earth, USA Today says.
