Pink took to her Instagram account on Thursday (30.03.17) to reveal she is back in the studio following the birth of her son Jameson.
They'll be joined by Ellie Goulding, Craig David and Rudimental.
The first bunch of acts for Virgin V Festival 2017 have finally been announced, with Jay-Z and Pink named as headliners for the 22nd edition of the British music event. It marks ten years since Pink first appeared at the festival, way back in 2007, and it's Jay-Z's first ever V appearance.
V Festival comes to Hylands Park, Chelmsford on August 19th and and Weston Park, Staffordshire on August 20th, with the first line-up announcement having been made on Capital and Capital XTRA today (February 27th 2017). Many more acts are yet to be announced in the coming weeks including for the BBC Radio 1 stage.

They welcomed their son, named Jameson Moon Hart, into the world on Monday.
Pop singer Pink has welcomed her second child into the world, a son named Jameson Moon Hart, with her husband Carey Hart.
Taking to Instagram to make the announcement, the 37 year old singer posted a picture of the baby boy in her arms, revealing that she gave birth on Monday (December 26th). Captioning it, she simply wrote: “Jameson Moon Hart 12.26.16”.
The couple already has a five year old daughter, named Willow Sage, who was born in June 2011.

The singer made the surprise announcement on Twitter.
Angelil passed away in January, after a lengthly battle with cancer.
Celine Dion debuted her emotional new song ‘Recovering’ during the annual 'Stand Up To Cancer' televised fundraising event on Friday evening. The powerful ballad was penned for Dion by singer Pink, as a tribute to her late husband Rene Angelil, who passed away from cancer in January.
The song’s heartfelt lyrics read: “Little by little, day by day/ One step at a time/ Shake up the devil, oh/ Take back my peace of mind/ Tell him I love him, yeah/ Take back my peace of mind.” On Friday Dion dedicated her performance to not only her husband, but also her brother and father who she also lost to cancer.
With the passing of each decade, the music industry is constantly set alight by the most recent saviour of pop and Connor4Real is the latest major record label cash cow but behind every great talent there's a whole host of people working behind the scenes to create the finished Connor4Real package.
Rose has called Kardashian’s selfie ‘beautiful’ and said the criticism she received was unfair.
Amber Rose is the latest celebrity to weigh in on Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie debate, offering her support for her former rival. In January the pair appeared to bury the hatchet when they posed for a selfie together, just days after Amber had fired back at Kanye West on twitter, over comments he’d made about her past as a stripper.
Pink talks about recording songs for the new Alice In Wonderland movie. The new film Alice Through The Looking Glass is once again based on the works of Lewis Carol and sees Alice face one of her biggest enemies - Time.
Directed by James Bobin, the Tim Burton produced film is set for release in May and will reunite a number of the cast from the 2010 film as well as some additional characters including Sacha Baron Cohen as Time.
For the movie soundtrack Pink has recorded a version of Jefferson Airplane's psyched out single 'White Rabbit'. The track was originally released in 1967 and featured the now famous powerhouse vocal from Grace Slick.
The veteran rockers may have suffered some turbulence in their ranks, but that hasn't stopped them bringing in the Benjamins
Bon Jovi made over $205m (£125m) collectively over the last twelve months of being on tour; an impressive amount by all means, ensuring they finish 2013 as the highest grossing touring group of the year. Since January, the band have performed 90 sets to over two million fans, according to Billboard's yearly rankings, with each show a sell-out, making them easy victors in this year's rankings.
Bon Jovi performed to millions of people across the globe and made millions back in return
The Michael Jackson-inspired 'Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour' by Cirque Du Soleil came in second and despite not scoring a single sell-out performance, they contortionists still managed to bring in $157m Third and fourth place was decided by a few (hundred) thousand, with Pink edging out Bruce Springsteen for the No. 3 spot. Her 114 shows in 2013, 111 of which sold out, earned the singer $147.9m as she performed to over 1.5 million people across the globe. Springsteen saw his 53 tours sell out in 36 locations, with over 1.3 million people paying a combined $147.6m to see The Boss.

Despite winning acclaim and producing award-worthy releases, there were a number of notable absentees in the list of Grammy nominees for next year
The 2014 Grammy Awards will take place in January 2014, with the full list of nominees being revealed over the weekend. Jay-Z was the most capped nominee, with nine nods in total, whilst Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar and Daft Punk were also among the list of potential winners, but there were a number of artists who were nowhere to be seen on the list of nominations.
After their shock win in 2011, Arcade Fire have been ignored this time
Despite their last album, The Suburbs, being a runaway success at the 2011 Grammy Awards, Arcade Fire are nowhere to be seen on next year's list. Their fourth album, Reflektor, was met with almost universal praise and some critics noted that it was an improvement form their latest release, but it seems as though the Grammy committee weren't as impressed as everyone else. The Canadian band don't even appear in the Best Alternative categories, however it is pleasing to see Tame Impala and Vampire Weekend among the nominees in this category, especially considering VW released one of the albums of the year with Modern Vampires of the City.
Even if we've never been to a 12-step meeting, an intelligent script and sharp performances help us see ourselves in these characters and situations. The film may sometimes get a little preachy, but writer-turned-director Blumberg (The Kids Are All Right) strikes a terrific balance between comedy and drama.
At the centre is Adam (Ruffalo), who has just passed the five year mark in his battle against sex addiction. His sponsor Mike (Robbins) is proud of him, but he and his wife (Richardson) have their own issues since their ex-addict son (Fugit) has just returned home. Meanwhile, Adam is sponsoring Neil (Gad), who was court-ordered to attend rehab and doesn't take his addiction seriously until he gets to know Dede (Moore aka P!nk), a fellow rebel in the group. Then out in the real world Adam meets Phoebe (Paltrow) and has an instant spark of attraction. But as their relationship develops, he knows he'll have to tell her about his addiction.
The script is very tightly constructed to explore the topic from several angles through a handful of characters and sideplots. But while this may feel a bit tidy, Blumberg keeps everything grounded in honest experience. So the comedy is edgy and surprising, while the dramas avoid the usual cliches, never going quite where we expect them to as Blumberg and the cast explore the deep flaws all of these people have. So we can cheer for their small victories and sympathise with their failures. And each actor is excellent.

The new Gwneth Paltrow/ Mark Ruffalo comedy about sex addiction doesn't quite perform.
Thanks For Sharing made its debut in American cinemas today, having premiered at this month's Toronto International Film Festival where it tested the water with critics.
Gwyneth Paltrow At The Thanks For Sharing Premiere.
Starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo, Thanks For Sharing marks the directorial debut for Stuart Blumberg and addresses a tricky issue we see cropping up more and more in modern films: sex addiction. Last year's Oscar-dazzled Silver Linings Playbook featured Jennifer Lawrence as a recovering sex addict whilst 2011's Shame addressed Michael Fassbender's destructive sex addiction.

P!nk's stratospheric pop career and music industry influence will be recognised by Billboard.
Pop star P!nk is in line to be awarded Woman of the Year trophy at New York's 2013 Billboard Women in Music event on the 10th December this year. Now in its eighth year, the awards ceremony celebrates the "most powerful and talented women in the music business," according to Billboard.
P!nk's Dazzling Career In Pop Has Earned Her Numerous Accolades.
P!nk, AKA Alecia Moore, has had an incredible year, hitting her fourth No.1 single on the Billboard hot 100 with her Nate Ruess duet, 'Just Give Me A Reason.' Her latest and sixth album, The Truth About Love, was released last September and was her first to reach No.1 on the Billboard albums chart, selling 1.7 million copies to date and spawning hit singles 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss),' 'Try,' and 'True Love.'
Dr Luke won't sit on the panel of judges this year.
Forget everything you've heard, hitmaker supreme Dr Luke will not be joining the judge's panel on American Idol, despite earlier news. It was reported that Dr Luke would sit alongside returning panel members Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez on the singing talent contest to judge pop star hopefuls for a 13th season.
Dr Luke [L] Is The Man Behind Many Popstars.
Luke, with a history of writing hits for former American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, as well as P!nk's 'Who Knew' and Katy Perry's 'I Kissed A Girl,' apparently made through the judge's selection process to become one of the last candidates standing after a month's long search for the next discerning talent judge.
Other winners on the night included Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and of course, One Direction
Sunday (25 August) night saw the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York taken over by the biggest names in pop for one night only, as the 29th annual MTV Video Music Awards took the recently-completed venue by storm in an awards show that, like most VMAs, will be long remembered. In all there were eleven different winners in the sixteen different categories, whilst the ceremony itself was an onslaught of musical surprises and memorable performances, as the VMAs continued to live up to it's billing as the 'Oscars for youth.'
Justin was the biggest winner on the night
The biggest winner of the night was pop's returning prince Justin Timberlake, who not only won the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for his services to the music industry, but also took home another three awards for two of his The 20/20 Experience music videos. His comeback single 'Suit & Tie' won Best Direction, whilst the follow-up single 'Mirrors earned the former N*Sync singer the Best Editing and the coveted Video of the Year Award. And speaking of N*Sync, during Timberlake's medley of hits prior to the Video Vanguard handing over, we were finally treated to the long-overdue reunion of N*Sync, who performed their memorable hits 'Girlfriend' and 'Bye Bye Bye.' We would have been more surprised, if it wasn't such a poorly kept secret.
Adam is a nice guy who's willing to be faithful to his girlfriend Phoebe, there's just one problem; he's addicted to sex. Despite Phoebe's initial scepticism and distrust, Adam attends group therapy classes to overcome his clinical neurosis before it destroys his chance of love. There he meets Neil, someone who doesn't actually have sex, but whose addiction stems to getting as close to women as possible and has already lost him his job after his boss caught him filming up her skirt. Neil becomes best buddies with Dede, one of the only women in the therapy group who he puts all his energy into helping recover from her own problem. With everyone banding together to face their demons, beautiful friendships are discovered and waning relationships are healed.

It's a film about sex addicts - so sort of like 'Shame' - but funny, apparently.
Apparently being voted as the sexiest woman alive has given Gwyneth Paltrow just the confidence she needed, because the actress is now stripping down in a trailer for her new movie Thanks for Sharing, USA Today reports. Well, don’t get too excited – Paltrow strips down to some fancy lingerie and of course, everything is kept PG.
Check out the Thanks for Sharing trailer.
Gwyneth Paltrow's underwear will be the most talked about moment from the 'Thanks for Sharing' trailer - though the film could turn out to be pretty decent.
Ok so this happened. Gywneth's Paltrow's underwear, well, lingerie, is on full show in the trailer for her new movie 'Thanks for Sharing,' about three people who undergo a 12-step treatment to cure sex addiction. The 40-year-old wife of Coldplay's Chris Martin strips down to her smalls in the new clip which rolled out online on Wednesday (June 26, 2013).

Obviously you may have better things to do than watching Paltrow parading about in lingerie, but just in case you don't, the trailer's below. The comedy-drama also stars Tim Robbins (Shawshank Redemption), Josh Gad (Book of Mormon), Mark Ruffalo (Zodiac) Joely Richardson (Nip/Tuck), Carol Kane (Annie Hall) and the pop-star Pink.
Star will be better in time for London shows
It’s always the provincial shows that seem to bear the brunt of a performer’s illness. The pop star Pink has been forced to pull out of a date in Birmingham, but – surprise, surprise – has assured fans that she’ll be fit and ready to go again when she gets down to London’s O2 Arena tomorrow night (April 24, 2013).
Pink performing on the first night of her aborted Birmingham residency
“With deepest regrets I had to cancel my first show of the tour tonight in Birmingham,” she wrote on her Twitter, going on to explain “I have an ear and respiratory infection. I am not a person that takes cancellations lightly and I apologize to anyone who was inconvenienced by my illness. Thanks to all my genuine people out there sending love.” A statement was also published on the 33 year-old singer’s website, which read: “It is with great regret that P!nk has been forced to postpone her concert tonight at Birmingham's LG Arena. After seeking medical advice this afternoon she has been advised that she cannot perform tonight. The promoters have asked ticket holders for tonight's show to retain their tickets. Further announcements regarding a replacement date will follow. All other UK dates on The Truth About Love Tour will not be affected.”

Faith Hill has ended her six-year spell on Sunday Night Football.
Faith Hill will no longer feature on the opening theme for NBC's primetime Sunday Night Football show after announcing she is leaving after six years. Hill has sung the opening theme for the show - a reworked version of Joan Jett's I Hate Myself For Loving You - since 2007, when she replaced Pink.
However, Hill has opted to stand down from her role and the hunt for her replacement is underway. "Faith Hill is family to all of us at Sunday Night Football. For the last six seasons and two Super Bowls, her opening performance of 'Waiting All Day' set the tone for SNF and became a television staple," Sunday Night Football producer Fred Gaudelli said in a statement to the Hollwood Reporter, "We will always be grateful for her performances and friendship. We wish Faith nothing but continued success."
Hill announced the news on Twitter early on Monday, tweeting, "Amazing 2 have been part of SNF -- an honor. I've just let everyone there know it's time 2 let someone else rock the open," adding that it was a "difficult decision, kinda emotional."

Following the success of Pink's 6th album 'The Truth About Love', it's no surprise that her greatest hits collection has been re-released. While it doesn't feature any material recorded after 2010, it's a surprisingly comprehensive overview of Alecia Moore throughout her twenties. At this point I should reveal that I don't own any Pink records, neither am I likely to, but it's for that reason that 'Greatest Hits.So Far!!!' seems to work so well. In many ways, it resembles Madonna's 'Immaculate Collection'; while you may not realise it beforehand, you'll know many more of her songs than you thought. To be honest, that familiarity is why this collection feels justified rather than existing as a cynical cash in on her chart success.
It's not perfect and, while useful for the uninitiated, the roughly chronological track listing could be mixed up a little to make the album feel more cohesive. But despite minor gripes, 'Greatest Hits.So Far!!!' does exactly what it sets out to. It paints Pink as a multi skilled artist, who's straddled the pop charts without sacrificing artistic credibility. There are very few other current artists that sound as comfortable singing a political protest song ('Dear Mr President') as they do a party song ('Raise Your Glass'). Along the way she's more than happy to poke fun at her contemporaries ('Stupid Girls') and deal with divorce ('So What'). In most cases, it's her punky and sassy attitude that makes her songs endearing. It's refreshing to hear someone who isn't afraid to write about her own life with a certain amount of venom. But, as this collection shows, that hasn't always been the case.
The first three tracks demonstrate the very standard R 'n' B and pop format that Pink was initially known for. 'Get The Party Started' has a certain amount of charm, but it hasn't dated that well. Neither has the Destiny's Child-lite vibe of 'There You Go'. It's only when 'Don't Let Me Get Me' starts that you realise that Pink has really found her feet and begins to hit her stride. Thankfully, the team up single for the movie Moulin Rouge ('Lady Marmalade') is missing here, although that song did firmly push Pink into the spotlight, allowing her to take a little more artistic control of her career.

Pink loses 55 pounds? Did she really need to? Anyway, she has, and the pop superstar is telling everyone exactly how she did it. The 33-year-old wanted to shift the baby weight following the birth of her baby daughter earlier this year.
Pink, who covers this month's Shape magazine, explained, "I ate a lot of cheesecake during those nine months..Also anything sour, Sour Skittles, Sour Patch Kids, Key Lime Pie." So how did she lose 55 pounds in next to no time? Well, she began working out with celebrity trainers Jillian Michaels and Jeanette Jenkins of course! The 'One Last Kiss' hit-maker did cardio exercises every day, along with power yoga, kickboxing and strength training. She also opted for a mostly vegan diet. Sounds horrific. Pink and her motocross racer husband Carey Hart welcomed their first child, daughter Willow, on June 2, 2011.
As for more children, Pink told OTRC.com at the Happy Feet 2 premiere last year that she wants "a basketball team," adding, "I'll take other people's children at this point."
Actress Elizabeth Hurley makes a speech at the Empire State Building before the Building is illuminated in Pink for breast cancer awareness in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Estee Lauder's Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. 'Twelve years ago we started the global illumination programme and the very first building we lit pink was here the Empire State Building', she explained, wearing a pink dress in honour of the occasion, before thanking the various people involved with the event.

While the Emperor penguins of Antarctica find their mate by singing their 'heartsong', Mumble is different. Instead of singing, he has a talent for tap-dancing and it was this that won the affections of his old friend Gloria. His unique gift also helped ban overfishing in Antarctica which saved the fish population from extinction.

Naturally, Victoria gets separated and spends the next hour-plus running around in the catacombs in her boots (has Sossamon ever appeared in a movie in heels? just wondering), being chased by, you guessed it, a dude in a goat-head mask. He doesn't stop, no matter how injured Victoria gets or how many people she encounters get killed... until the end, when one of cinema's most absurd twist endings of all time gets sprung on you.

Kenneth Williams' famous quip "Infamy! Infamy! They've all got in for me!" has been named as the funniest line in movie history.
He uttered the words as Julius Caesar in the 1964 film Carry On Cleo.
Coming second in the poll for Sky Movies Comedy, which quizzed 1,000 film fans and critics, is the line "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy" from the Monty Python film The Life of Brian.
And apparently the third funniest words uttered in a film are the exchange between Robert Hays (Ted Striker) and Leslie Nielsen (Dr Rumack) in the 1980 hit Airplane! After Hays said "Surely you can't be serious" Nielsen quipped back "I am seriousand don't call me Shirley".
Other films with one-liners making it into the poll's top ten are lines from the slapstick comedy films Dumb and Dumber, There's Something About Mary and The Naked Gun.
Top ten comedy lines
1) "Infamy! Infamy! They've all got it in for me!" Kenneth Williams as Julius Caesar Carry on Cleo (1964)
2) "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy." Terry Jones as Brian's mother - Life Of Brian (1979)
3) "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley." Leslie Nielsen as Dr Rumack - Airplane! (1980)
4) "Remember you're fighting for this woman's honour, which is probably more than she ever did." Groucho Marx as Rufus T Firefly - Duck Soup (1933)
5) "Don't knock masturbation. It's sex with someone I love." Woody Allen as Alvy Singer - Annie Hall (1977)
6) "Do you have a licence for your minkey?" Peter Sellers as Inspector Clouseau - The Return of the Pink Panther (1975)
7) "Is that, is that hair gel?" Cameron Diaz as Mary Jensen - There's Something About Mary (1998)
8) "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here. This is the War Room." Peter Sellers as President Merkin Muffley - Dr Strangelove (1963)
