Pink and Sisqo Serving Colored Hair Realness: Throwback Thursday

Remember the days when MTV was one of like two channels we loved? And being in the audience at TRL was a goal? And we used to legit have arguments about NSYNC vs. Backstreet Boys (NSYNC always. If you disagree, you’re dead ass wrong). MMHMM. You remember.

That was also when we used to watch Sisqo’s Shakedown and the “Thong Song” had us hyped? 2000 was a good year of awesomely terrible entertainment. I miss it. Wells, I stumbled upon the pic below of Pink and Sisqo on the beach, looking like Y2K happened on their heads and I deep sighed with nostalgic warm and fuzzies.

Cuz you know when Pink came out, she wanted to make sure we never forgot her name so she looked like the bear in Breaking Bad for years. How did they get her hair to be so bright? Them follicles musta been weaker than twigs after all that bleaching. AND we never saw her roots so she was getting touched up ON the regular.

To her right is the man we somehow thought was segzy. I don’t know if good judgment went on vacation but how did we think Sisqo was a heartthrob? Homeboy was rocking silver paint on his head like it was ok and he made it his signature. We cheered him on, in spite of the fact that he looked like a character from a sci-fi flick with a budget of subway sammiches and Walgreens gift cards. We’re not e’em gonna talk about the eyebrow piercing that is almost bigger than his whole face.

And them yellow shorts. That don’t look like cotton. It seems to be table cloth fabric. The type you get at the party store. Except it’s bedazzled for extra fanciness so we can all get our lives.

Bless all our entire hearts. We ain’t know better.

We know Pink is still outchea prospering but what is Sisqo up to nowadays? Does he manage Amil at the local Wendy’s or is he doing something more? I haz questions.

    Luvvie you cannot have me hollerin’ like this at this time of morning! I won’t have NO voice by the time I get ready to leave for work!

    But yeah…I remember those days. I had a thing for that little midget my damn self. I don’t know what it was about him. Dude COULD sang, tho.

    Pink was and always will be that cool ass chick you’d want to be best friends with. I really wish I knew her in real life.

    Sorry for the back to back comments, but I had to add that you now have me running over to YouTube to watch some old Sisqo and Dru Hill videos so I can take a stroll down memory lane. :)

    A few summers a go a went to a concert in Detroit that had Da Brat, Dru Hill, 112, and Jagged Edge. It was EVERYTHING!!! Luvvie, Sisqo is still rocking platinum hair, wearing big dragon belt buckles and has a dragon on his mic. Can’t nobody tell him it’s 2014 and not 2001.

      Not Samantha Mumba, though! But for some odd reason when I’m try to picture Samantha, Rihanna pops up in my head instead.

    He ( Sisqo) was on celebrity wife swap with a woman he had an a calorie count. ( She was okay with it) he looks the same, no growth spurt for him.

    First of all, yes, *NSYNC all the way! What is a backstreet boy? Lowercase for they asses. Ha! Ok, that’s shadeful. I loved them until the first time NSYNC dropped the beat and did that acapella harmonising thing that all the groups do (except BSB, cuz they couldn’t!!) JC was ma BOO, even though the group was engineered for JT to become a megastar. I’ll admit to being butthurt about that, even though JC sabotaged his own solo career with that pathetic song that shall not be named.

    Ennehweighs, P!nk was, is and will always be fricking amazing! Loved her from the first moment I heard her voice and that hot pink hurr was BAWSE. Lol! I still rock out to Can’t Take Me Home whenever I get to feeling old and nostalgic. Sisqo now… Nope, never got into him. Always had better musical taste than to like a song about butt floss. Lol! Liked Dru Hill though. I remember we had a class trip the year that song was hot and being a colonial girls’ school, our teachers didn’t even want us to have music on the bus because to their minds, everything was lewd. We had to beg and plead. When Thong Song came on and some of the girls were losing their minds, the teacher just cut us off completely. If you didn’t have a discman (like myself), you just had to endure the long-ass drive with only the music of your heart (NSYNC plug!!) to comfort you.

      Was Sisqo the wife?

      I never got into BSB or N’Sync (or B2K, 112 etc). I think the last truly great boy group was Boyz II Men.

    Pink dyed her hair because all the new artist were blonde ad she wanted to stand out (Brittany, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore, etc). Loved the color and her album!

    BackStreet Boys!!!! That is the ultimate boy band! Loving them for life…

    Never in my life did I think Sisqo was some heartthrob. He was a cornball to me through and through. Nice voice, though. But cornball central.

    Not gonna lie, I miss this (pink-haired) Pink. But I’m glad she’s still relevant to this day. Her stay powering is legit.

    Finally, BSB >>>> NSync. Always and forever.

    I’m sure Siquo is working with Amil and Petey Pablo is the bouncer at a strip club still trying to get girls to “twirl it like a helicopter”

    and NYSNC ALL DAY! Remember-they’re “crossover” song was Gone and stayed on the Good version of 106&Park (when adults went) countdown for a minute

    N’SYNC 4ever!!! That silver hair is a hot mess!! Bedazzled, yellow, oilcloth shorts are never OK. I can appreciate that Pink didn’t try ‘the lean’ to make her abs look perfect.

    Well, I’m in Baltimore, and in July 2012, Dru Hill along with Sisqo sang the National Anthem at a local 5k race right around their old hood of Park Heights. There were about 70 people registered. Sigh… I felt badly for them. Sisqo hung around and took pictures with my run group so that was fun. He’s very personable!!!!

    These are guys who were at the top of the music charts for a brief time. Oh how the mighty have fallen!

    Pink (or PANK as I like to call her) gets the “Forever Dope” award from me. That hair was everything! And yes, I’ll admit that I had the “Unleash the Dragon” CD. *hangs head* don’t judge me. Thong Song was HOT. At the time ctfu

    They look like yellow bedazzled pleather shorts to me. At least it’s not a short-set with a hat to match #Bmore-styleproblems
