The outspoken singer is fed up with the scrutiny from photographers when she is out in public. After Alyssa Milano expressed her displeasure at intrusion from photographers on Twitter, Pink backed her up.
‘ wish paparazzi would leave me alone at yoga class and that bloggers would stop buying the photos,’ Alyssa wrote. ‘That is my wish on this Sunday morning.’
Pink later tweeted in reply: ‘ pray you get your wish. My wish is all of their families are stalked and followed much like they do ours. Soon maybe.’
It’s not the first time Pink has spoken out against the paparazzi. She once warned that ‘something tragic’ would happen if they continued to chase celebrities.
‘ feel like something tragic is going to have to happen for people to wake up and see how vulturous and poisonous it’s all gotten,’ she said in 2008. “Before it was kind of silly, how stupid everyone was. Now it’s just kind of sad and dark; it’s all gone to a totally different place.”
The ‘Raise Your Glass’ singer ‘ whose real name is Alecia Moore – revealed her and motocross racer husband Carey Hart are “ecstatic” with the arrival of their new daughter last night, and she took to her twitter account this morning (03.06.11) to announce her joy.
She tweeted: “We are ecstatic to welcome our new beautiful healthy happy baby girl, Willow Sage Hart. She’s gorgeous, just like her daddy. beyondblessed.”
The 31-year-old singer was thought to have been admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles last night and preparing to give birth via caesarean section after reports the baby was breech, meaning the little one had entered the birth canal feet or buttocks first, rather than the usual head first way.
A source said: “Pink’s baby was breech, so they were going to schedule a Caesarean section if the baby didn’t correct its position.
“Her last check-up was on May 12 and she was expected to give birth three weeks from then, so today is perfect timing!”
Pink hinted yesterday her baby could have arrived when she tweeted: “New Moon in Gemini today a good time to start something new . Also called the Honey Moon.”
The ‘So What’ singer confirmed she was pregnant in November last year, but admitted she was “nervous” about disclosing the news after previously suffering a miscarriage.
She said: “I didn’t want to talk about it because I was just really nervous and I have had a miscarriage before. I worked for it. It was not an, ‘Oops!’ “
The ‘Stupid Girls’ hitmaker – who is supporter and campaigner for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) – hit out at the 18-year-old singer after she was spotted filming a clip for her new video ‘I Love You Like A Love Song’ on a Malibu beach with several brightly-painted creatures.
Writing on her twitter page, Pink said: “If there are any animal activists around Malibu- at Leo Cabrillo State Beach, there are horses being painted for a stupid music video. Shame.
“Artists should be more aware and responsible for their actions.
“whether u r a fan of mine or whomevers, i won’t stop speaking out about animal cruelty.i’ve taken responsibility in the past,so should she.”
However, a representative for Selena’s record company has insisted no animals were harmed during the filming of the video.
The singer’s spokesperson said in a statement to People magazine: “It was important to the Production Company, Record Label and Ms. Gomez that no animals were harmed and all proper precautions were taken.
“A non toxic, vegetable based powder paint was applied via an airbrush and removed with water. An official from the Humane Society was on set supervising.”
The 31-year-old singer is expecting her first child with spouse Carey Hart and the pair have been attending birthing classes together.
And the pop star admits she has been intrigued by some of the lessons.
She wrote on her twitter page: ‘what i learned tonight in baby class: the most helpful thing my man can do in early labor, is feed his partner. i like it already…
Pink ‘ who announced she was pregnant last November ‘ is starting to experience some difficulties as her baby bump gets bigger.
She revealed in another tweet: ‘if someone would please help me with my pedicure, I can’t reach my toes!!!!!!
Last month, Pink revealed she had been struggling to keep her balance as she reaches the final stages of her pregnancy.
She tweeted: “i am the clumsiest i have ever been in my life. fell AGAIN today! i feel like my 92 yr old grammom in a shower with oil on my feet. #dumb.
The teen pop sensation has created a public service announcement with the animal rights organisation to encourage people to give a home to an animal from their local shelter rather than buy a companion from a breeder or pet store. In the video, which has been posted online, he says: ‘t’s really important that people adopt. I really encourage going out to an animal shelter or a place where you can get a dog that has been abandoned or doesn’t have a home . A lot of animals are getting abused in different homes … and I think it’s really important we just stay aware about these different situations.’ Justin ‘ who was born and spent his early life in London, Ontario, Canada, before moving to Stratford, Ontario – also reveals he adopted a dog from an animal shelter, a cute papillon breed called Sam. He explained in the video message: ‘ have a dog, his name is Sam. He’s actually a papillon. We moved to a city where we didn’t really know anybody, so I wanted a friend and Sam was kind of like that friend. “My dad and I used to just go visit the different animals and stuff.’ The 16-year-old singer also posed for two print adverts to raise awareness of the campaign which include the tag lines “My World Includes Passion for Animals, Yours Should Too,” and “Animals Can Make U Smile, Adopt From Your Local Shelter”. Justin is the latest in a long line of celebrities to lend their support to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). Other stars who have appeared in campaigns or acted as spokespeople include Pamela Anderson, Pink, Leona Lewis, Sir Paul McCartney and Eva Mendes. According to PETA, between 6 to 8 million abandoned or stray dogs and cats enter animal shelters every year and around half of them have to be euthanized because they can’t be found a home.
Katy Perry is looking forward to creating her own Christmas traditions. The ‘Firework’ hitmaker already has some festive rituals she is planning to share with husband Russell Brand ‘ who she married in October ‘ but is hopeful the couple can come up with new things to do over the season. She said: ‘There will be me and Russ and a pink Christmas tree and a tofu-urky. We’ll open one present the night before because that’s the tradition in my family. And we’ll do something new. We’ll start our own new tradition because we are a family now.’ As well as creating new festive traditions with her husband, Katy is also excited about starting a family with Russell. he told Grazia magazine: ‘ don’t want to miss out on any experience. I want lots of children. It’s all very possible.’ The brunette beauty also explained why she and Russell have not made their wedding pictures public, insisting the couple want to keep their romance private. She added: ‘We never wanted it to be a public event which is why we didn’t sell pictures, so we had some privacy. This relationship is real, it’s not a photo opportunity, it’s two people who have found what they want.’
