2012 American Music Awards: Let’s Recap This Pop-splosion

Welp, the 2012 American Music Awards just happened. That was fun, right? No, seriously, we’re asking because our brains have been reduced to quivering puddles of goo and we’re not exactly sure what we just witnessed other than the most whirlwind, overblown three hours in pop music. Did they even leave the nominees’ names onscreen long enough for viewers to read them? Did the songs in the medleys even make it through to the chorus before switching to the next hit? We can’t know for sure.

What we do know is that a few performances cut through the fog. Pink basically stole the show with a daring live re-creation of her impeccably choreographed “Try” video. The performance was as ballsy as it was beautiful and should be the most talked-about moment of the broadcast. And yet, we have a feeling PSY‘s collaboration with MC Hammer may steal her thunder. Then again, if that’s the last time we have to subject ourselves to “Gangnam Style,” then we suppose it’s just about the best way to go out, the viral equivalent of a Viking funeral. More »

Pink Performs “Try” At The 2012 AMAs: Watch

Pink Performs "Try" At The 2012 AMAs
Don't Bother Trying To Compete
Pink‘s video for her latest single “Try” was one of our favorites of the year — emotionally complex, gorgeously shot and executed and featuring some of the most remarkable choreography in recent memory — so it came as a dazzling surprise when she chose to perform that song at the 2012 American Music Awards by recreating the video. What’s even more impressive is how all of the physically demanding choreography was replicated faultlessly during the live show, making it an instant standout. The best moment, though, was when Pink took a moment to take in the  eruption from the crowd — which sounded even more deafening than most of the applause throughout the course of the evening. Watch up top.

2012 American Music Awards: Pink Is Good As Gold On The Red Carpet

Ladies and gentlemen, Pink has arrived! The Truth About Love singer tends to put on some showstopping numbers during her live performances, so expect something impressive later. For now, we’re already blown away by her classy look on the red carpet, which mixes elegance with a touch her trademark edge. (Is it just us, or does this dress give off a bit of a gladiator vibe?)

Pink Enlists Swedish Rockers The Hives For Her Truth About Love Tour

Pink is still a rock star and to prove she’s got her rock moves, she’s bringing Swedish rapscallions The Hives on her The Truth About Love tour in early 2013. The rock band’s live show is critically acclaimed, featuring an impeccable black-and-white suit ensemble (often with top hats), so if anyone can set the tone for a Pink spectacle, it’s these guys. They’ll be supporting the singer on all but three of her North American dates. For her shows in Charlotte, Philadelphia and St. Paul, folk act City and Colour will take the opening slot. Check out all the whole list of her tour dates here.

Behind The Scenes Of Pink’s “Try” Video: Watch

Pink's "Try" Behind The Scenes Video
Pink Tries, And Succeeds
Pink‘s video for “Try” is a mini-masterpiece of violence and sexual tension, and the clip’s dazzling choreography left us wondering how, exactly, Pink and her hunky man-friend pulled off all of those stunts. Fortunately, Pink has just dropped a behind-the-scenes look at the production of “Try.” Less fortunately, it turns out that the secret behind the production is that there is no secret — Pink and her dance partner Colt Prattes are just majestically ripped and talented people capable of extraordinary physical stunts.

Pink’s ‘Shape’ Is Worthy Of A Cover: How The New Mom Dropped 55 Pounds

Hot Pink!
In case you haven’t noticed, Pink‘s bod is pretty unbelievable — it’s not just in shape, it’s on Shape. (See what we did there?) The proud pop-rockin’ mama revealed the truth about her 55-pound (!!!) weight loss to the fitness magazine. After spending nine months of her pregnancy eating “cheesecake” and “anything sour; Sour Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, key lime pie” the “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” singer looked to fitness gurus Jillian Michaels and Jeanette Jenkins to “kick [her] butt”. The 33-year-old explained, “their bodies were all the inspiration I needed to get back into shape,” and she did just that with a regimen of cardio, interval training and yoga paired with a “mostly” vegan diet. (That last detail should come as no surprise to anyone who remembers Pink’s vivid imagery of animal mistreatment in her “Raise Your Glass” music video). More »
