P!NK

Share

Real name Alecia Beth Moore, P!nk was born on September 8th, 1979, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. With a willingness and talent to embrace many musical genres, P!nk's influence on all generations also stretches to animal rights, women's rights, and her feelings about the Iraq War, and George W. Bush in particular, are only to clear on the beautiful 'Dear Mr President'. P!nk may be a tabloid darling, but there's a lot more substance to her than outrageous clothes and a pretty face.

P!nk first made her name in 2000 as an R&B artist, on LaFace Records, and her debut album, 'Can't Take Me Home', was released in April of that year. It went double platinum in the US, and has sold around three million copies. P!nk's first hit singles were taken from 'Can't Take Me Home' - 'There You Go' and 'Most Girls'. Both were top 10 singles both sides of the Atlantic.

'M!ssundaztood' in 2001 really underlined P!nk as a major artist, and the album has sold 15 million copies to date. P!nk achieved her first number one US and UK single in this year, with a cover of Patti LaBelle's 1975 hit, 'Lady Marmalade', together with Lil' Kim, Mya, and Christina Aguilera. The four also appeared in a raunchy video, and the song being featured in the moving 'Moulin Rouge' movie helped its success. The song gave P!nk her first Grammy Award - for Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals. P!nk was also on the rise as a solo artist, achieving her highest singles chart placings in the US and UK. 'Get the Party Started' reached number two in the US in 2001, and 'Just Like a Pill', both from 'M!ssundaztood', became P!nk's first UK number one in 2002. That year P!nk had more record sales than any other female artist in the world.

P!nk - 'I'm Not Dead'

P!nk has flourished as a singer/songwriter since her first album, taking more control of her own material from 'M!ssundaztood' onwards. Her third album, 'Try This', released in 2003, included the Grammy award winning single 'Trouble', and again went platinum. P!nk also picked up her first Brit Award in 2003 - for Best International Female Artist.

'I'm Not Dead', P!nk's fourth album, released in April 2006, upset some, especially tracks 'Stupid Girls', which was about, well, stupid girls, and 'Dear Mr President' may well be looked back on as a classic. Look out for newsreels in the future, featuring the song, when a dejected George W. Bush is seen leaving the White House for the final time. That day can't come soon enough...

In 2008, P!nk's single 'So What', from her fifth album, 'Funhouse', became her first US number one.
