Pink Says Motherhood Isn‚Äôt As Bad As Waterboading & Names Her Baby Willow After a Tree
Celebrities give their kids stupid names.¬†¬†It's a fact.
--PINK and¬†CAREY HART kind of bucked that trend.¬†¬†They named their daughter Willow Sage, which isn't that outrageous.¬†¬†And the inspiration behind it is actually pretty cool.
--She's basically named after a tree . . . but a really strong tree.¬†¬†Pink says, quote, "The willow is my favorite tree.¬†¬†I grew up near one.¬†It's the most flexible tree in nature and nothing can break it¬†¬†. . . no wind, no elements.
--"It can bend and withstand anything.¬†¬†I love that sentiment.¬†¬†I want that for her."
--She adds, quote, "Sage is cleansing and sacred.¬†¬†And it sounded great together.¬†¬†It doesn't hurt that her last name is Hart . . . flexible cleansed heart."
--Pink also says everything is going smoothly so far . . . despite a little chaos right at the beginning . . . quote, "We had one major meltdown the first night home.¬†¬†Carey couldn't figure out who to comfort first. It was pretty funny, actually.¬†¬†Poor guy.
--"[Willow's] been amazing.¬†¬†Everyone gives you this terrifying picture of no sleep at all, bickering which leads to divorce . . . they made it sound like waterboarding.
--"It's not that bad!¬†¬†I think I've cried more than she has and that's just because I'm emotional and a little nuts."
Comedy Central Will Roast Charlie Sheen . . . on the Same Night as Ashton Kutcher's "Two and a Half Men" Debut
Comedy Central's next roast victim will be¬†CHARLIE SHEEN.¬†¬†The roast will tape September 10th, and will air on September 19th, which just happens to be the same night that¬†ASHTON KUTCHER makes his debut on¬†"Two and a Half Men".
--Obviously, this is NOT a coincidence.
--The prospect of stealing some attention away from the season premiere of the new¬†"Two and a Half Men" MUST have played a role in Charlie's decision to do the roast . . . but at least for now, he isn't admitting to it.
(--Charlie replaces KID ROCK, who was supposed to be Comedy Central's next target.¬†¬†He had to back out because of a scheduling conflict.)
Justin Bieber's "Vanity Fair" Is the Worst-Selling Issue in 12 Years

--Here are some more numbers to chew on:¬†¬†Justin's October 2010 issue of¬†"Teen Vogue" was down 12% from the magazine's average sales last year . . . and an issue of¬†"People" that he covered in April of last year was down 25% from normal.
