Pink Says Motherhood Isn’t 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
JUSTIN BIEBER'S rabid fan base of teenage girls will throw money at almost ANYTHING related to Justin . . . but not EVERYTHING.
--For example, there's Justin's issue of "Vanity Fair", which came out in February.
--According to some new numbers released yesterday, it's on track to sell 246,000 copies, which would make it the worst-selling issue in 12 YEARS. For comparison, "Vanity Fair" has averaged 342,000 in sales per issue this year.
--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.
