Pink: "I'm A Reformed Slut"

In a new interview with Glamour magazine, Pink explains why she chose to include tunes like "Slut Like You" and "Walk of Shame" on her most recent album, 2012's "The Truth About Love."

"Oh, yeah. I'm a reformed slut," Pink states in the magazine's June issue, explaining: "It's my very unsophisticated way of taking the power back. I've always had an issue with (the idea that) "OK, we've both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you're the player? You didn't get anything from me that I didn't get from you.""

Pink reveals she once was the object of a certain boy bander's affection back when she opened for *NSYNC during the group's summer 2000 concert tour. "Joey Fatone was in love with me," Pink is quoted as saying. "He took me to Friendly's on a date, and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart. He asked my dad's permission."

These days, Pink is married with Motocross racer Carey Hart and has a
2-year-old daughter, Willow. When asked if it's tough to accept that things are eventually "good" between her and Hart, considering the pair has been through many splits, including a marital separation, she points out that they still argue and that commitment is not easy.

"Are things ever good? I don't believe that exists," Pink responds. "Long-term relationships are an everyday choice. It's harder to be in a marriage than it is to bounce from one relationship to the next. We're good because we communicate and we've grown up together, not because we don't fight."

Pink also mentions how motherhood has changed her. "Somebody asked Carey how I've changed since I had Willow, and he said my claws have sharpened. They got longer too," Pink explains, sharing a story about how little Willow once fell and wound up with concussion, which, in turn, nearly gave her mother a heart attack.

"Welcome to parenthood. I thought, I can't handle this, I'm fitting her for a bubble," she states. "Every time she bounces on the bed, I see stitches. Being a parent is a Jedi mind f**k. It's also the raddest thing ever."

Pink honestly admits she is trying hard with the cursing, but she has a way to go. "Willow said: "F**kin' hi," the other day. I'm like: "F**k!""

The June issue of Glamour hits newsstands on Tuesday, May 7.

Tom Sizemore Drug Abuse Detailed In New Memoir

Tom Sizemore's drug abuse has been detailed in his new memoir "By Some Miracle I Made It Out of There."  
Sizemore, best known for "Natural Born Killers" and "Saving Private Ryan" details how he rose to Hollywood fame and fortune - only to succumb to the ravages of addiction and lose it all.

In the book, Sizemore, 51, explains drugs led to a lengthy downfall and the loss of all the trappings of a remarkable career on screen.

In the autobiography, Sizemore calls himself a "spoiled movie star" and an "arrogant fool," and writes:

"I was a guy who'd come from very little and risen to the top... I'd had the multimillion-dollar house, the Porsche, the restaurant I partially owned with Robert De Niro. And now I had absolutely nothing."

And while his adventures (including a flirtation with Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss, ending in a legal battle) may sound like fun, Sizemore admits:

"I've led an interesting life, but I can't tell you what I'd give to be the guy you didn't know anything about."

Sizemore details a relationship with Juliette Lewis during the filming of "Natural Born Killers" (which he states consisted mainly of porn and drugs binges) and says:

"Here's how I feel at this point: I'd never hire me. If I weren't me, I wouldn't hire Tom Sizemore to make coffee or throw confetti on himself."

Tom Sizemore's drug reflections were also part of a recent book release interview with Access Hollywood, in which he talks about his relationship with Celebrity Rehab's Dr. Drew. He also mentions Mindy McCready, an alum who recently took her own life after the loss of her partner:

"It's the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, getting a sponsor, going to meetings, getting a commitment, doing the steps, telling it to another person, that's what you do. That's a prescription. Everybody's got the same prescription. Now, I filled mine and I used it. Mindy, on some level, I guess she didn't."

As the memoir drops, Tom Sizemore reveals he has been clean from drugs for three years.

Carolyn Moos On Ex Fiance Jason Collins: "I Had No Idea He Was Gay"

Carolyn Moos, the woman who was once engaged to NBA star Jason Collins revealed to celebrity website TMZ she had not a sigle clue he was gay at the time of their affair! The irony is that she discovered the truth about his sexual orientation last weekend!

Carolyn Moos (who played a few seasons in the WNBA) dated Collins for seven years and was engaged to him until they went their separate ways in 2009 after Collins postponed their wedding.

Carolyn told TMZ, she never once suspected he was gay, so the news is shocking. She stated Collins ultimately revealed everything last weekend - just days before his big announcement - and explained that his homosexuality was the real reason he ended things with her.

At the time of their split, Carolyn stated Jason gave a bunch of unbeleivable reasons for putting an end and she could never realize what went wrong, until now.

Carolyn was quoted as saying: "It's very emotional for me as a woman to have invested 8 years in my dream to have a husband, soul mate, and best friend in him. So this is all hard to understand."

She added: "I care about (Jason) tremendously and only want the best for him. I want Jason to be happy for a lifetime and stay true to who he really is, inside and out."

Johnny Depp And Amber Heard Hold Hands At Rolling Stones Concert

On Saturday night, Johnny Depp, 49, was pictured holding the hand of Amber Heard, 27, as they made their way through a crowd at a surprise, celebrity-stuffed Rolling Stones show in Los Angeles.

"Amber has been at Johnny to go public since the beginning of the year," a source revealed to the National Enquirer. "When he balked, she walked out on him and went back to (sometime girlfriend) Tasya (van Ree), and Johnny totally freaked out! Amber's become the major organizer of his crazy world, and he couldn't cope without her."

It sounds normal, as does this little tidbit from Us Weekly, which claims as part of the wooing process, Johnny built a bar at his Bahamas estate that's an exact replica of one from "The Rum Diary," the film on which he met Amber.

"The movie's set designer created the plans," explained an insider, adding that Heard was surprised when she first laid eyes on the libation-based romantic gesture during an April getaway to his private island.

This follows other such reported grand gestures by Depp. Word is, he won over the Texas native by sending her several self-penned poems and presenting her with a horse.

"They are so in love," enthuses the Us spy. "He's crazy about her."

The couple were first linked in July of last year, just a month after Depp separated from longtime love Vanessa Paradis, the mother of his two children. Around that same time, Heard reportedly called time on her four-year affair with photographer van Ree.

"I don't label myself one way or another," Heard stated in 2011. "I have had successful relationships with men and now a woman."

Dannii Minogue Quotes

1. The only pop acts still here from when I was around are Kylie and Natalie Imbruglia.

2. I'm not living for when I have a Number One record or when I make a million trillion dollars. I'm not doing this to get somewhere else. I'm doing it because I'm doing it.

3. Being sexy doesn't mean you shouldn't be safe.

4. Her aunt was like a home base for Emma, she was a tearaway and she'd do terrible things and come back to Ailsa and go: "Oh, I've done the wrong thing then, haven't I?" and she'd say: "Yes, and this is what you should do".

5. Everyone has determination - it's a question of how you use it. Hers is based on power and success and conquering; she doesn't care what she has to do or who gets hurt in the process. In that way we're very, very different.

6. I had some great scenes with Nana Coburn who played Vicki, we had some good bitchy fighting scenes together! When I first came into the show, when Emma was a punk, I also had some great scenes with Nicole Dickson.

7. (on Kylie) She's going to be fine. She's really lucky her cancer has been treatable. She's getting better by the day. I can't wait to see her back on her feet. She's inspirational, she's a fighter.

8. I knew at the time that that wasn't the part I would be doing, they just wanted a screentest so they could have a look at it to show to the directors and producers. Then they wrote a part for me or maybe they already had it in mind, I don't know.

9. She is very well aware of the floods of love coming in for her and it's very helpful and supportive.

10. Since I've been in Playboy myself in Australia, I love it, and I think it's really empowering and positive towards women, which is not a view that many women hold.

11. We had a lot of emotional phone calls, with me calling Paris and Kylie calling me in London…But we're really pleased how it turned out. It was a huge moment for our family.

12. So we both went and Kylie ended up with the part! I wasn't upset, maybe I was too young to even know what was going on.

13. It was like a classic thing with Emma. So I walked in and I slammed the door and everything fell off the wall on the set. It was my second or third scene and I was so embarrassed and scared and so nervous about what everyone would say, but everyone just packed up laughing.

14. We must have done five takes before the chairs fell off the table, and when they did they went down like dominoes! They're metal and they make the loudest noise so they couldn't use that take because all you hear is CRASH! I think the sound guy listening to it just blew his eardrums out. 

15. He's been incredible. He makes her so happy. I would love them to marry.

16. It was like cramming for an exam, trying to learn all this stuff about the 60s, but it was fun. I asked Mum and Dad and other friends of theirs and read bits out of books and old magazines and newspapers.

17. Also, there are seats in the diner that always fall off the table. If you have a scene where you're packing up at the end of the day and putting them on the table, they just slide off.

18. Terry, my manager, spoke to them and they asked if I would come and do an audition, so I auditioned for the part of Marilyn.

19. It was sort of good it happened because it broke the ice with everyone.

20. When things went wrong it was fairly funny. At the time you say to yourself: "I know I'll look back on this and laugh". When we were doing scenes at the beach and it was so windy and freezing and all blotchy and we'd have lines to say like: "What a beautiful day. Let's go for a swim". 

21. I didn't expect to get it at all. I just went along to the audition for the experience.

22. It was like an older but better version of "Young Talent Time" because we had more time to spend on it. There were three guys and three girls and we made thirteen episodes that were sold in the United States and Canada.

23. Mum, who had been a dancer with a small ballet company before she got married, was full of encouragement. She didn't say: "This is really good, you should do this", She just encouraged us to do whatever we liked.

24. It was a non-speaking part. I remember being really excited and taking the day off school to do it. I didn't have a clue what was going on technically, all I knew was that there was a camera there and that was it. 

25. Kylie and I were both taking piano lessons at the time and didn't think of acting. A friend rang mum up and said: "How about bringing Kylie and Danielle in because they might be right for the part?"

26. The funniest thing happened in one of my first scenes. In the beginning Emma was really arrogant and punk and in every scene she would slam the door when she walked in or out.

27. Judy Nunn and Ray Meagher were great. They played Ailsa and Alf, my mum and uncle, and I had most of my first scenes with them. The whole time that I'd been in the show all my big emotional scenes were with Judy.

28. They had asked for me because they wanted a younger girl, but Mum asked if she could bring Kylie along because she didn't want there to be any jealously.

29. I'd been very good friends with this girl since primary school. I distinctly remember going into a white hospital room and seeing her lying there, strapped to the bed. I was just a young teenager and it was so horrendous. I watched my friend nearly die from anorexia. There was no headline that someone could write about me that would make me do that to myself...There were some horrific headlines. Had I not been confident about myself and my body, I would have been in a load of trouble.

30. I always watched the show thinking: "Wouldn't it be great to be a member?", but I never thought it would happen.

31. I can't wait for my new album to be released, it's in the style of hot house disco. It will bring other elements to my sound, but keeping in the groove that I found with Neon Nights. I've been inspired by the pumping tunes of DJs working in Ibiza, Miama and Hot House destinations. I have worked with some of the same producers as "Neon Nights", and some new ones. My main aim is heavy-fat-bass-lines, I love that thumping feeling. Hopefully I have topped "Neon Nights", which was made with lots of love.

32. (When asked what are the top things on her list when looking for the right guy) Gorgeous, available, gotta be single, none of this messing about, good sense of humor, protective, definitely, confident, I mean because loads of guys won't put up with my kind of job.

33. We were great mates. We didn't really go out together because we never really had the time to go out. But we were with each other all the time anyway because we were working all the time. We could sit down and talk for hours, and we still can. We just understood each other.

34. I couldn't sing to save myself. Greg went to John after the audition and said: "She's cute, but she can't sing very well" and he said: "I know. We'll teach her. I just want her on the show".

35. I had a scene where the chair was meant to slide off the table, but do you think it would slide off? No. We were running out of time and we had to get these scenes done urgently.

36. I had an acting coach while I was doing the show and every week I could see my work improving. I really liked working on the show because I was learning new things every day.

Dannii Minogue Nose Job

Australian singer/songwriter, talent show judge, actress, television, radio personality and fashion designer Dannii Minogue (full name: Danielle Jane "Dannii" Minogue) is rumored to have had a nose job to improve her appearance.

Judging by the before and after photos, Dannii's nose is obviously fixed as it was wider before while now it is just the right size and shape. The only problem is that her nose is extremely pinched at the sides and her nostrils have been reduced so much that the inside of her nose is showing. 

Dannii Minogue, 41, is open about her plastic surgeries and has honestly admitted that her several different plastic surgery procedures haven't made her feel happier about herself. 

"There's no right and wrong - it's a personal choice… It didn't make me happier, though. If you link cosmetic surgery into happiness or to be perfect you're never going to be happy. It's not about being perfect - that's where people get it wrong," Minogue was quoted as saying.

Conclusion: Dannii Minogue's nose job is nice, but it is a bit overdone.
