Pink (born Alecia Beth Moore, 8.9.1979) 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.
Pink will always regret lashing out Prince at the beginning of her pop career when he was trying to help her mastermind her success.
The Trouble singer reveals she asked the Purple Rain hitmaker, who died last week (21Apr16), to record with her - and she wasn't happy with his response.
Recalling the encounter during a radio interview with Nova FM's Fitzy & Wippa on Thursday morning (28Apr16), Pink said, "I actually had an argument with Prince once... It was about owning your own masters (original recordings).
"I asked him to collaborate with me (and) he asked if I owned my masters. I told him, 'No, I didn't', because I had just actually got a record deal, so it was a little early for me to be demanding my masters back. He told me to call him when I did. I told him he was a rude f**k, then I went on stage.

Pink has reworked the Jefferson Airplane classic for the upcoming sequel, which sees Alice return to Wonderland.
Singer Pink is preparing to venture down the rabbit hole, for the soundtrack to sequel Alice: Through the Looking Glass, which hits theatres on May 27th. The film’s soundtrack promises to be just as quirky and fun as the movie itself, with Pink not only contributing an original song, but also covering one of pop’s most trippy 60's classics.
Pink features on the soundtrack to Alice Through The Looking Glass.
On the Alice: Through The Looking Glass soundtrack, Pink reworks Jefferson Airplane’s 1967 hit ‘White Rabbit’. The psychedelic track takes it’s inspiration from both Lewis Carroll’s tales of Alice and the fantastical world of Wonderland and fits perfectly with Tim Burton’s hyper-surreal vision of Carroll’s classic work.
With the passing of each decade, the music industry is constantly set alight by the most recent saviour of pop and Connor4Real is the latest major record label cash cow but behind every great talent there's a whole host of people working behind the scenes to create the finished Connor4Real package.
Rose has called Kardashian’s selfie ‘beautiful’ and said the criticism she received was unfair.
Amber Rose is the latest celebrity to weigh in on Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie debate, offering her support for her former rival. In January the pair appeared to bury the hatchet when they posed for a selfie together, just days after Amber had fired back at Kanye West on twitter, over comments he’d made about her past as a stripper.
Moretz is standing firm after Kardashian threw some serious shade at her via Twitter after the nude selfie incident.
“I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” 19 year old Moretz had tweeted on Tuesday (March 9th). 35 year old Kardashian brushed this off by replying “Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. Your nylon cover is cute boo.”

Model Amber Rose is criticising Pink for hitting out at women who flaunt their bodies for attention and money.
The Missundazstood star made the comments in a post on Twitter.com (08Mar16) in recognition of International Women's Day, in what many believe to be a thinly veiled dig at Kim Kardashian, who had caused an uproar on social media this week by posting a nude, barely censored, selfie.
"Shout out to all of the women, across the world, using their brains, their strength, their work ethic, their talent, their 'magic' that they were born with, that only they possess", the 36-year-old singer tweeted.
"It may not ever bring you as much 'attention' or bank notes as using your body, your sex, your t**s and a**es, but women like you don't need that kind of 'attention'," she added.

Pink talks about recording songs for the new Alice In Wonderland movie. The new film Alice Through The Looking Glass is once again based on the works of Lewis Carol and sees Alice face one of her biggest enemies - Time.
Directed by James Bobin, the Tim Burton produced film is set for release in May and will reunite a number of the cast from the 2010 film as well as some additional characters including Sacha Baron Cohen as Time.

Pop star Pink narrowly escaped injury on Thursday (04Feb16) after getting silly during a treadmill workout.

He captioned the clip, "#TreadmillFootWork #LateNightWorkout #Turnt (sic)".
Pink decided to have a go herself, but the singer wasn't so smooth and almost slipped up as she showed off a quick dance move on the moving treadmill.
