Pink (born Alecia Beth Moore, 08.09.1979) Pink is an American singer and songwriter who first rose to fame in 2000. She is possibly best known for her hit 'Get the Party Started' which was released in 2001 and later covered by Dame Shirley Bassey.

Childhood: Pink was born and raised in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Her parents are Judy and James Moore. Her mother is a nurse and her father is a Vietnam War veteran.

As a child, Pink attended Kutz Elementary School, Klinger Middle School and Central Bucks West High School. Whilst she was at high school, her father used to write songs for her to sing along to and she formed her first band, Middleground. The band had a rivalry with another local band, The Jetsists. Pink has claimed that Bette Midler and Janis Joplin are among her biggest musical influence.

At the age of 16, Pink joined another band, Choice. Choice signed to LaFace Records and their song 'Key To My Heart'. When the group disbanded, she continued to record for Laface under the stage name Pink. She also worked as a backing vocalist for Dian Ross and Tevin Campbell.

Musical Career: In 2000, Pink released her debut album, Can't Take Me Home. Produced by Babyface and Steve Rhythm, the album was awarded double platinum status. The singles 'There You Go', 'Most Girls' and 'You Make Me Sick' were all released from the album. That year, Pink worked performed as the opening act for 'N Sync's American tour.

In 2001, Pink recorded a single with Christina Aguilera, LIL' KIM, Missy Elliott and Mya. Their cover of Labelle's 'Lady Marmalade' was featured on the soundtrack of Moulin Rouge!, the Baz Luhrmann film that starred Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman.

Pink's second studio album was entitled Missundaztood and was released in 2001. She enlisted the help of Linda Perry as songwriter for the album. Perry was formerly a member of the band 4 Non Blondes. The album was co-produced by Perry, Dallas Austin and Scott Storch. 'Get The Party Started' was the lead single for the album. Other singles to follow were 'Don't Let Me Get Me' and 'Just Like A Pill'. In 2002, Faith Hill used a song written by Pink and Perry for her album Cry. Later that year, Pink was chosen to support Lenny Kravitz on his tour.

In 2003, Pink's song 'Feel Good Time' was chosen for the soundtrack of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. The film starred Drew Barrymore, Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. The song was co-written by Beck and was produced by William Orbit.

Pink's third album, Try This was less financially successful than her previous two full-length releases. Among the songwriters on this album was Tim Armstrong of Rancid. The album featured the singles 'Trouble' and 'God Is a DJ'. Pink won a Best Female Rock Vocal Performance Grammy Award for 'Trouble'.

In 2005, Pink appeared on Lisa Marie Presley's album Now What.

Pink chose a number of new producers to work on her fourth album, including Max Martin, Butch Walker and Christopher Rojas. Entitled I'm Not Dead, the album was released in 2006. 'Stupid Girls' was the lead single from the album and was her biggest hit since 2002. The song makes a mockery of female starlets such as Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson and Lindsay Lohan.

In 2006, Pink toured with Justin Timberlake on his FutureSex/LoveShow tour. She also collaborated with Indigo Girls on their Despite Our Differences album. She later recorded the track 'Sing' with Annie Lennox and 22 other female singers for Lennox's Songs of Mass Destruction.

2007 saw the release of Pink Box, a collection of albums two to four, as well as her Live in Europe DVD.

Pink's next studio album, Funhouse was released in 2008 and featured the singles 'So What', 'Sober' and 'Crystal Ball'.

Personal Life: In 2005, Pink proposed to her partner, the motocross racer Carey Hart. They married in January 2006, in Costa Rica. By February the following year, however, they had separated. In March 2009, it was reported that the pair had attended marriage counseling and were attempting a reconciliation.

The 38 year old singer clapped back at somebody on Twitter who had called her "old".

Pop star Pink proved once again that she’s the queen of clapbacks, entertainingly shutting down a Twitter user who trolled her about her appearance and called her “old”.

Reacting to a newly published picture, one tweeter wrote that the 38 year old singer “looks so old that [she] should be named Purple instead”. It didn’t take Pink long to respond, and when she did so, it was pretty brutal.

“You must be from L.A.,” she wrote. “Well, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally. And I’ve earned every f**king minute of my 38 years. How you lookin' though? Cause I never heard of ya til you put my name in your mouth. I shall call you little purple troll.”

Grammy Awards Sets Up 'Independent Task Force' To Examine Gender Equality Issues

Grammy Awards Lorde Pink

It comes after an awards ceremony that saw just 17 out of 86 awards go to female artists or female-fronted acts, as well as Grammys president Neil Portnow's much-criticised words.

After a turbulent week in the wake of the Grammy Awards ceremony, dogged by accusations of inequality between male and female artists, an independent task force has been set up to examine “the role of gender”.

It comes in the context of Recording Academy president Neil Portnow coming under fire for saying that women in music needed to “step up” when he was quizzed about the relative lack of recognition they received during Sunday’s awards, where female artists or female-fronted bands only received 17 out of the 86 awards and the list of performers included few women.

On Thursday (February 1st), Portnow went back on his statement and said they were a “poor choice of words” and that “gender bias” in the industry needs to be addressed.
