Pop punk Pink has laughed off claims her chart career "was dead" after her 2002 disc TRY THIS was critically mauled, insisting she's very much a part off the music industry future.

The JUST LIKE A PILL singer, 26, was upset when critics lambasted the album, but is now confident her next disc will be a success.

And she refuses to be influenced by reviews.

Pink says, "People wrote me off after the last record, so I decided to call the next one I'M NOT DEAD.

"I really couldn't give a f**k if this one bombs, but I know it won't. I definitely don't suck right now."
