"It gave me on-camera experience, so by the time I auditioned for MTV, I was able to get that job," she said. "And through the numerous covers I did after that or the specials that I would host with Hef, I'll never forget."

Pink Shares Story About Her Daughter, Celebrates Individuality in Moving VMAs Speech

Pink accepting the Video Vanguard award at the VMAs: MTV/YouTube

Pink used her VMAs platform to recount an interaction she’d had recently with her six-year-old daughter. Accepting the Video Vanguard award last night — which recognizes an artist’s career achievements — the pop star revealed that her daughter described herself as “the ugliest girl I know.” Her daughter said, “I look like a boy with long hair.”

Her mother’s first instinct was to find out if someone was bullying her kid. “Who said this? Can I kick a six-year-old’s ass?” Pink joked as she told the story. Instead, she put together a slideshow of androgynous musical artists like Annie Lennox, Janis Joplin, and David Bowie to show her daughter. These are artists who “live their truth,” Pink said, and “are probably made fun of every day of their lives and carry on and wave their flag; and inspire the rest of us.”

Pink then admitted to her daughter that her own looks and behavior have been mocked as too masculine — but she hasn’t let that stop her from doing what she wants. “I said to her, ‘Do you see me growing my hair?’ She said ‘No, Mama.’ I said, ‘Do you see me changing my body?’ She said, ‘No, Mama.’ ‘Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?’ ‘No, Mama.’ ‘Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?’ ‘Yes, Mama.’”

With that, Pink concluded her story. “Ok baby girl,” she recalled saying. “We don’t change. We take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so that they can see more kinds of beauty.”

Pink is a three-time Grammy award winner. The artist has also acted in projects like mockumentary “Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping” and rom-com “Thanks for Sharing.” Her next album, “Beautiful Trauma,” will be released in October.

Check out Pink’s entire VMAs speech below.

‘To The Bone’ Works Hard To Do Justice To The Realities Of Anorexia [Review]

Addiction has long been one of Hollywood’s favorite muses. It makes for empowering, emotionally charged films about one of life’s most trying personal battles. Of course, the success and believability of these sorts of movies vary wildly: for every “Half Nelson” and “Trainspotting” there’s a “Thanks For Sharing” or “Flight” (which was fuelled by a fine performance, but in the end was little more than histrionics).

Interview: Hell Town Writer/Director Steve Balderson

I love horror as much as the next fright fanatic, but sometimes I need a breather and a few laughs help me get through my day. Hell Town really shakes things up (review) by providing a genre bending experience with a compilation of episodes from a lost TV soap opera surrounding a town that falls victim to a serial killer amidst relationship drama. The bodies pile up as the panties drop and Hell Town delivers a sexy escape that’ll keep you smiling. Writer/Director Steve Balderson took some time to chat about his latest film, while delivering some insight as what served as inspiration.

I really dug Hell Town. I thought it was super funny and actually kind of erotic in its own not so subtle ways. I wasn’t sure if it was due to my own personal tastes, but it felt like there was a higher emphasis

Krisha and The Art of Filming Self-Destruction

A movie that approaches and separates itself from a familiar storyline.

Self-destruction has been a popular cinematic theme since the silent era. One of the first examples being Charlie Chaplin’s The Cure from 1917, a film about a drunk who goes to a spa hoping to cure his addiction. Almost 100 years later, the most recent contribution to this popular narrative is Krisha, Trey Edward Shults’s first feature film. The film stems from Shults’s short film released the year prior titled Krisha, and, spanning over a single day, tells the story of a woman returning home after having disappeared for a number of years.

Krisha isn’t the first film to screen addiction, as stated above. To name a few movies of this genre: Miles Ahead (2016), Trainwreck (2015), Thanks for Sharing (2012), Shame (2011), Requiem for a Dream (2000), Man With a Golden Arm (1955), The Lost Weekend (1945), and Sadie McKee (1934). Yet since its festival circuit and (limited) release as of

Amy Schumer Lashes Out at Glamour for Putting Her in 'Plus Size' Issue

Amy Schumer picked up a copy of Glamour and saw she was in the magazine -- which may sound good in theory, but it was apparently dedicated to "plus size" women, and she was not happy to be included. Why? Because of her own size, and the message she feels it sends to other women and girls.

The "Trainwreck" and Comedy Central star shared an Instagram post on the subject, which was met with some interesting comments, some agreeing with her point and others challenging it.

Here's what she wrote, with a photo of the magazine cover:

"I think there's nothing wrong with being plus size. Beautiful healthy women. Plus size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. @glamourmag put me in their plus size only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn't feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body

After the comedian slammed Glamour magazine for including her in their "plus size" bonus issue sponsored by Lane Bryant, she tweeted that qualifying women with labels is pointless.

Sleeping With Other People – The Review

Sleeping With Other People is a forgettable, by-the-numbers romantic comedy that relies on tiresome clichés and unfunny sex jokes. The newest from writer/director Leslye Headland opens at Columbia University in 2002 where students Jake (Jason Sudeikis) and Lainey (Alison Brie) lose their virginity to each other one night. Jump ahead 13 years and horndog Jake is reintroduced having an angry confrontation with his current girlfriend over his serial inability to stay committed. Meanwhile, Lainey is having an affair with Matt Sovochek (Adam Scott), now a gynecologist married to pregnant Emma (Katherine Waterston). After over a decade of not having contact with one another, Jake and Lainey reconnect at a sex addiction support group meetings. They suddenly become platonic best friends, venting their frustrations over their sexual and romantic lives while falling for each other in the process.

I suppose the audience is expected to laugh at the assumed outrageousness of all the explicit dialog about sex,
