AMAs: Pregnant Pink takes it easy for once

The usually death-defying performer Pink let her back-up dancers do the heavy lifting during her performance of “Raise Your Glass” at the American Music Awards. Surrounded by skateboarders and gymnasts, Pink, wearing a pair of harem pants hiding her burgeoning belly, mostly walked around the busy stage. But can you blame her? The singer just announced her pregnancy! (And acknowledged it again by rubbing her tummy as exiting the stage.) Still, Pink showed off her powerful vocals — and her tendency to include the bizarre in her performances. What was up with that glitter guy?

Did you enjoy Pink without the bells and whistles?

Pink is pregnant: 'I'm eating for two these days'

Ellen-Pink-stomachImage Credit: Warner Bros.Pink has announced that she is pregnant. On tomorrow’s episode of the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the pop superstar, 31, tells the host that she is “eating for two.” Pink reveals that she had been “working” on having a child with husband Carey Hart and that her doctor, “thinks it’s a girl.” The singer also says she had been nervous about announcing she was pregnant because she had previously suffered a miscarriage.

Finally, Pink describes her relationship with Hart as better than ever: “We worked really hard and we had our little meltdowns, a couple of them, and now, we’re honestly, we both needed to do that and come back together. It’s just yummy.”

Hear Pink's newest single, 'F***in' Perfect'

Pink already has a fantastic single, “Raise Your Glass,” out right now. But the pop star has released a second original tune off her Nov. 16 album, Greatest Hits…So Far. The new track is called “F***in’ Perfect” and I think the same could be said for the tune. It’s another great anthem from Pink, showcasing her throaty vocals and rebel punk attitude. I just love this lady! Listen below to (the very NSFW) “F***in’ Perfect”…

What do you think Music Mix-ers? Is this song better than “Raise Your Glass?”

Pink's 'Raise Your Glass' video toasts to fat girls, gay dudes, and Rosie the Riveter

You know that awesome single “Raise Your Glass” that Pink released about a month ago for inclusion on her forthcoming greatest hits album? Well, she’s upped the ante for the song with a provocative, hilarious, winky new video for the rousing single, which debuted today. Pink has said before that she wrote the song for all the underdogs out there—hence inspiring lyrics like “so raise your glass if you are wrong—in all the right ways—all my underdogs”—so it’s no surprise that the clip features several very weird situations featuring people that you might call—how shall we say it?—less fortunate.

Anyway, there’s the fat girl eating lunch between two cardboard cutouts of skinny gals (don’t worry—fat girl gets her moment); Pink singing at a gay wedding (which features two dudes kissing—apparently the thing du jour in pop music videos these days, just see Katy Perry’s recent video for “Firework”); and a dairy farm that features blindfolded women being milked for a baby calf to drink (it’s a rather startling image).

Of course, the supposed-to-be empowering imagery doesn’t stop there! No, no. Pink shows up as a WWII-esque Rosie the Riveter, Pink jabs a bullfighter instead of a bull, and Pink appears possibly being scandalous with different religious figures. It’s a thoughtful, endlessly watchable video, just what we’d all expect from the always-on-her-toes Pink. Watch it for yourself here:

Pink unveils new song for greatest-hits collection, 'Raise Your Glass'

pinkImage Credit: Marc Broussely/Redferns/Getty ImagesPink may be rowdy, but she’s punctual. The cockatiel-coiffed pop star’s official website promised fans a surprise at 6pm EST today, and at 6pm it was duly unveiled–a new track for her upcoming, modestly titled Greatest Hits … So Far!!, due November 16.

“Raise Your Glass,” a raucous NSFW ode to those who are “wrong in all the right ways,” toasts the “dirty little freaks” (with a glass full of … juice? kombucha?); stream it here.

The song already made news today when gossip sites reported a casting call for the upcoming video, which read, in part: “REAL GAY COUPLE Lead Male or Female / 18 to 30 / All Ethnicities Seeking real gay couples. Pink is going to be marrying you!”

Pink taken to the hospital after concert fall, but says 'full steam ahead'

pinkImage Credit: Marc Broussely/Redferns/Getty ImagesWhile performing her hit “So What” at a concert in Germany last night, pop star Pink fell from the elaborate trapeze set-up she was hanging from over the stage. In a YouTube video captured by a fan, Pink appears to start ascending in the trapeze hoist, then falls down, before yelling into her mic, “Oh God. Oh f— that hurt.” According to reports, Pink fell out of the harness she was in and was dragged into a barricade.

The singer later dispatched several missives about the incident on her Twitter feed. First she wrote: “To all my nurnberg fans- I am so so so sorry to end the show that way.I am embarassed and very sorry. I’m in ambulance now but I will b fine.” Then, about an hour later, she assured fans she was alright: “Ok all my lovers out there- nothings broken, no fluid in the lungs, just seriously sore. I made that barricade my b*tch!!!! Thanx nurnberg:(“

Then, about 8:30 a.m. this morning, she wrote: “okay. full steam ahead people.no pain, no gain. or is it no brain, no pain? either way, i will be on that stage, even if i have to crawl:)” And followed that up with a thank you to fans: “and a HUMONGOUS thank you to everyone who sent their love and concern, nikki is also doing fine. i will buy her an ice cream later.” Hark: It does indeed sound like she’s fine. Whew! Calls to her representatives for further comment have not yet been returned.

Eminem and Pink's duet, 'Won't Back Down,' hits the Web

Eminem-pinkImage Credit: Michael Caulfield/WireImage.com; Jamie McCarthy/WireImage.comOne of the more intriguing entries on the recently announced track list for Eminem’s Recovery (due June 22) was “Won’t Back Down,” featuring Pink. What mayhem could two personalities as strong as theirs unleash on a track together? Rap Radar debuted “Won’t Back Down” today, so now we have our answer.

The tone of “Won’t Back Down” is about as different as can be from the zen calm of previous Recovery single “Not Afraid.” Eminem sounds angry as all hell, spewing multisyllabic venom over squalling guitars and drums courtesy of rising producer DJ Khalil. His verbal agility is as impressive as ever, but content-wise this is nothing we haven’t heard from Em before. One clever moment comes a few minutes in, when the track’s volume suddenly drops out mid-rant. “Turn me back up!” Em retorts, still right on beat, and the track complies. “Are you insane? Trying to talk over me in the car? Shut the f— up while my s—‘s playing!” How meta. As for Pink, she discharges her hook-howling duties competently, though frankly I expected something a little less anonymous-sounding from her.

What do you think of “Won’t Back Down”? Does this make you more or less excited for Recovery?
