Pink isn't letting the Grammy Awards get her down.

The singer and mother-of-two posted an adorable image to Instagram when she lost out on the Best Pop Vocal Album award to Ariana Grande, and it's TOO PURE.

Her album, Beautiful Trauma, was the 39-year-old's 20th Grammy Award nomination, and despite not actually winning, her daughter made her feel special anyway.

She captioned the image of her adorable seven-year-old daughter Harper holding a tinfoil award;

"Thanks kids, my favourite kind of award."

She later tweeted her gratitude for the accolade honour, saying that she was "honoured" to be included in the category but her kids need her attention a lot more:

“I think it’s kind of rad that I just lost my 20th Grammy nomination,” the mum tweeted, referencing her two-year-old son Jameson's bath-time habit;

“I’m always honoured to be included. Now to get this sick baby in the bathtub. Congrats to all the nominees! Have fun tonight.”

The star has won three Grammy Awards since her first nomination back in 2001.

Pink last won a Grammy in 2010 after winning the award for best pop collaboration with vocals for her cover of the John Lennon classic Imagine with Seal and India Arie.

She also took home the gong for best female rock vocal performance for Trouble in 2003, and earned her inaugural Grammy in 2001 for Lady Marmalade.

The down-to-earth parent has always had a great attitude to balancing fame with her family, and we love her even more for it; She's always a winner in our eyes.

As you have probably heard by now, Kim Kardashian rented out the Staples Centre for hubby Kanye’s birthday on Monday.

A host of celebrity pals joined them to shoot some hoops at the home of the Lakers which cost Kim an astonishing €110,000 to hire out.

Kim stuck to the basketball theme, which Kanye clearly loves, and when he got home from playing ball – she had ANOTHER huge surprise waiting for him.

Part two of Yeezy’s present was his very own basketball court in the back yard of their mansion.

It is reported that Kim had construction crews get to work on the new court while Kanye and friends were distracted in the Staples Centres game.

This new court is said to be a 7,000 sq. m addition to their home

It is clear Kim spared absolutely NO expense for the rapper’s birthday and we can’t wait to see the celebrations he throws in return for her 35th birthday in October. 

All this, just for his 38th. We can’t even imagine what she’s going to pull off for his 40th. 

Kim and Kanye's €17m Hidden Hills California home sits on 3.5 acres of land so there is definitely plenty of room for a basketball court. 

The court is in addition to two pools, two spas, fountains, a rose garden and a vineyard.

Previously owned by Lisa Marie Presely, this mansion is the epitome of luxury. 



Kim has been talking up the occasion of Kanye's birthday on social media for the past few days, and boy did she have the perfect party planned for him. 

To celebrate Kanye West turning 38 on Monday, his wife Kim Kardashian, 34, went all out as she led him blindfolded to the Staples Center in Los Angeles for a star-studded party.


Thank you Staples Center for the most amazing birthday party for Kanye!

Having hired the whole 20,000-seat home of the Los Angeles Lakers, up first, Kanye got to play basketball with his favourite NBA players – and Justin Bieber too. The venue hire was said to cost upwards of €150,000.

Khloe Kardashian was first to Instagram about the news, telling her followers: 'Kim rented out staples b****!!! Him and his boys are going to bal!!!!! Happy birthday Yeezy!!!!'

Eventually, Kim took to Instagram herself to talk about the special day, saying: 'Thank you Staples Center for the most amazing birthday party for Kanye!'

She also posted a picture of Kanye blindfolded in the car en route, with a cheeky Kim sticking her tongue out, saying: 'surprise!'.

The bash saw John Ledgend sing the national anthem and take to the mic to sing Kanye a happy birthday. 

A source told E! News: ''Kim rented out the Staples Centre so Kanye and his boys could play an NBA-style game with real refs and Laker girls!

''John Salley is the announcer. Houston Rockets player James Harden and rapper 2 Chainz are the coaches. John Legend sang the national anthem.''

Kanye's friends – including Justin Bieber, Tyga and Pusha T – as well as his family joined the rapper at the court and NBA legends Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal recorded special messages for the star that showed on the big screen.

Also present was troublemaker Justin Bieber, who Instagrammed a picture of himself with Kanye, before deleting it and posting a slightly different image.

Kim isn't the first celebrity to hire out the 20,000-seat home of the Los Angeles Lakers. Justin Bieber rented the venue in 2011 for a romantic dinner. 

Also present at the party were Kris and Kylie. Kylie took to instagram to show off her red dress and short bob haircut, while posing her sisters.
