Funky, loud, the pop star with edge! That's how I've always perceived P!nk (whose real name is Alecia Moore.) Pink was a hardcore gymnast for eight years. Her first dream was to become an Olympic gymnast, but having a musically talented father she was swayed into a different direction. From PA, she started playing at clubs in Philly at the age of fourteen. She was in a couple girl bands, but the most known was the group Choice. The girls recorded the song "Key to my Heart" that was featured in the Shaq film Kazaam. In 1997 at a holiday party, P!nk spoke with record producer L.A. Reid. He gave her an ultimatum- go solo or go home.
That jumpstarted Pink's solo career and her first (and only R&B) album was released in the spring of '98. I was twelve when Can't Take Me Home came out. I remember wanting to buy it solely based on the album cover -woman with pink hair and cool dark sunglasses- she represented the "tough girl" within and I needed that record! Even though "There You Go" gained Pink commercial success, my favorite was always "Split Personality."
Pink has done tons with her career since the first album. She's toured the world 6 times, received Grammy awards, and released 5 other studio albums!
Pink will be accepting the "Woman of the Year Award" at the 2013 Billboard Women in Music event Dec. 10th. Go Pink! She's putting out a concert documentary titled Pink: The Truth About Love Tour and it looks crazy good! Check out the trailer for it below!
