Pink Hits Back At Mom-Shamers After Criticism Over Zoo Visit

People can't seem to leave Pink alone. After she vowed to never share pictures of her children on Instagram because she was constantly being mommy shamed, she decided to change her mind and post a photo of herself at a zoo in Germany with her son Jameson. Innocent enough, right? WRONG! People started to comment on her post and write things like, "I’m surprised you go to zoos. Animals shouldn’t be in captivity. If it was a sanctuary, that’d be different.” Pink shot back immediately though, writing, "I believe in capturing a child’s interest and love for an animal before teaching them about things like captivity. But thank you, the world needed your wisdom today." She also wrote, "I don’t remember asking you for your opinion or for your help in raising my child. This isn’t the place for a debate. Call CNN or call the zoo.” So fans started to argue amongst themselves. Thankfully, most fans were in support of Pink. She wasn't done there though. After that, Pink decided to post a few more photos of her kids. Under a picture of her daughter and a friend running through sprinklers, Pink wrote, "Here’s a picture of my child running through water. It wasn’t even filtered. What a waste of water. And no helmet? I hope she had sunscreen."

Hamburg show tonight!!!!!!! Thanks for a wonderful visit! #hamburgzoo #strandpauli

Ariana Grande Calls Pete Davidson Engagement An 'Amazing Distraction'

Ariana Grande is opening up about her short-lived engagement to Pete Davidson. If you don't remember, she got engaged to Pete Davidson less than a month after dating. Their breakup atually came weeks after the death of Ariana Grande’s former boyfriend Mac Miller, who died from an accidental drug overdose. In a new interview, Ariana Grande explained, "I met Pete, and it was an amazing distraction. It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him... I’m like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist... I still don’t trust myself with the life stuff.” I appreciate her honesty but OUCH! I'm sure Pete Davidson isn't going to like waking up to see he was called an "amazing distraction."
