Easy, Breezy, Beautiful Pink: Singer’s Now A CoverGirl

Singer Pink has landed a glamorous new job.

The “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” diva is one of the new faces of CoverGirl cosmetics, the brand has announced, and the timing couldn’t be better for Pink.

I have a lot to celebrate,” the mom of one said in a statement. “I called my new album ‘The Truth About Love,’ and the truth is that I have my beautiful family and baby girl, my new music, and now my partnership with CoverGirl to love.”

Pink joins famous names such as Christie Brinkley, Cheryl Tiegs, Tyra Banks, and Molly Sims – not to mention contemporaries like Taylor Swift, Queen Latifah, Drew Barrymore and Sofia Vergara, – and being among “a group of women who have always inspired me – to laugh out loud, let my guard down, or play around with my beauty look – is such an honor.”

The Vice President and General Manager of CoverGirl Cosmetics, Esi Eggleston Bracey, said in the statement that it’s Pink’s attitude that drew them in.

Pink is a powerful and provocative role model, who has always been an advocate of individualism and making no apologies for who you are,” Bracey said. “That combination of irreverence and integrity is exactly what the COVERGIRL brand loves about her and identifies with. We have admired P!nk’s art and her attitude for years! We love the energy and confidence that she radiates, and the fact that inside and out she’s as cool as she looks. She’s an awesome addition to our COVERGIRL family.”

Pink’s CoverGirl campaign will kick off this fall, around the same time she’s releasing her upcoming album. “The Truth About Love” will arrive September 18.

Taylor Swift Found Dead In Her Home? Nah, Just Another Twitter Casualty

Why does the Internet have to be so mean?

Yep. Taylor Swift is just the latest victim of a celebrity death hoax.

A Twitter account trying to pass itself off as being associated with MTV News claimed the country cutie was found dead in her home over the weekend.

Fortunately, reports say that Swift is indeed alive and well.

A similar hoax reared its ugly head back in 2009 after Kanye West famously interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Word that Swift has lived to see another day is obviously good news for her fans. Not to mention for new beau Conor Kennedy, as well.

The Lorax Tops Weekend Box Office

The big-screen adaptation of Dr. Seuss‘ classic children’s book The Lorax brought in big bucks this weekend at the box office.

Featuring the voices of Zac Efron, Taylor Swift and Danny DeVito in the title role, the animated Lorax netted a massive $70.7 million in receipts in its first weekend in theaters.

Largely aided by a 3D release, the film update of the 1971 Seuss classic easily became 2012’s highest-debuting flick.

Earning $17.4 million on Friday alone, The Lorax had the best opening day ever for a Dr. Seuss film, exceeding the day one take of 2000’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas ($15.6 million). If early estimates hold, the film is projected to have the best opening ever for a non-sequel animated film.

The teen party thriller Project X debuted in second place this weekend, earning a $20.8 million take, which far exceeds the $12 million budget for the flick, shot over five weeks in L.A. and presented in home video format.

Rounding out this weekend’s top five movies were Roselyn Sanchez’s Act of Valor ($13.7 million), the Ryan ReynoldsDenzel Washington thriller Safe House ($7.2 million) and Tyler Perry‘s Good Deeds ($7 million).

Taylor Swift Named Billboard’s Woman of the Year

Joining the likes of Beyonce and Fergie, Taylor Swift has been named Billboard’s 2011 Woman of the Year.

The 21-year-old singer – the youngest ever to receive the honor – will accept her award at the Billboard Women in Music event on December 2 in New York City.

The “Mean” singer was also recently nominated for five County Music Awards, including entertainer of the year, which she won in 2009.

Swift’s latest tour wraps up in November – around the same time her “Speak Now World Tour Live CD+DVD” hits stores. And she recently told The New Yorker, via MTV, that her new album is due out in 2012.

She said the songs she’s written so far mimic her recent epiphany: “You’re not always going to be ridiculously happy. … [The songs are] sad, if I’m being honest.”

Hopefully her new award will give her something to smile about.
