Maroon 5 Album Has Nothing To Do With Men’s Rights Activists              

Maroon 5 wants fans to know that their new album has nothing to do with Men’s Rights activists.

 The band recently announced that their new record “Red Pill Blues” would be dropping November 3rd. The title seems to be referring to the concept introduced in “The Matrix,” in which the red pill gives a person knowledge and freedom and the blue keeps them blissfully ignorant.  Well, it turns out Men’s Rights Activists started using the “red pill” phrase to describe the moment they realized the truth, that feminism is wrong, and that men, not women, are treated worse in society, and some wondered whether the Maroon 5 title had anything to do with that.

Well, in case you missed it, Maroon 5 are firmly denying any association with the MRA . “This title does not have any relation to the term you reference,” a rep tells Jezebel. “FYI...The album title is a reference to ‘taking the red pill’... which is a common phrase used to describe ‘seeing things as the really are’ ...such as like in ‘The Matrix’ where Neo takes the red pill.”

Pink Is More Than Just The Tough Chick              

Pink may come across as being a pretty tough gal, but she tells “CBS Sunday Morning” that’s not completely true.

“In a box of crayons, that's probably one color," she says. "'Cause some people think I'm a tough chick; some people think I'm the gooiest, most sensitive little delicate bird they've ever met in their life. So it just depends on the day." She adds, “The truth is, it's all true! And then some! It's a very large box of crayons!"

While Pink, whose new album “Beautiful Trauma” comes out Friday, does seem like she’s fearless, that’s not the case when it comes to raising her children, six-year-old Willow and nine-month-old Jameson.

“The worry was the part I wasn't prepared for. That's the part they don't tell you about,” she says. “I admire the parents that don't worry and that are just like, 'It was only ten stairs.'" While that may seem odd for someone who flies above crowds during performances, Pink notes, “but I know what I'm doing. And it's me. But I can't have her hurt herself. She's my little bean. And now he's my little meatball." 

As for her husband Cary Hart, Pink admits he’s a “wonderful man and wonderful dad, but sometimes a terrible boyfriend,” but at the end of the day she says, “I love him,” adding, “we just have a story that we’re writing together and we’re just never done.”
