Alecia Beth Moore (born on September 8, 1979), known professionally
as Pink (often stylized as P!nk), is an American singer-songwriter
who gained prominence in 2000. She is known for her unorthodox
clothing fashion and harsh, yet soulful, sound.
Pink released her first record, the R&B-influenced Can't Take Me
Home, in 2000. Her pop rock-influenced second studio album,
M!ssundaztood, was released in 2001 and is her biggest seller to
date, producing three top ten hits in the U.S. 2003's Try This, her
third album, failed to match the success of M!ssundaztood. After
taking a break, Pink released her fourth studio album, I'm Not Dead,
in 2006. She has sold over twenty million albums.
Early life and career
Pink was born in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania to Vietnam veteran James
Moore and nurse Judy Kugel. She is of Jewish ancestry on her
mother's side, and is Irish, German and Lithuanian on her father's.
She grew up in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where she attended Central
Bucks West High School. Her father played guitar and sang songs for
her, and from an early age she aspired to be a rock star. Her
parents divorced when she was seven years old. While in high school,
Pink joined her first "official" band, Middle Ground, but the band
never took off. According to Pink, her biggest influences are Janis
Joplin, Steven Tyler, Bad Religion, Mary J. Blige, Bob Marley, Billy
Joel, Indigo Girls, Don McLean, 2Pac, and The Notorious B.I.G.
Pink developed her voice early on in her life. An asthmatic, she
learned to breathe from her lower abdomen instead of her chest on
doctor's advice, and started singing lessons to learn this
technique. She began performing in Philadelphia clubs when she was
fourteen years old. At age sixteen, she joined an R&B Atlanta-based
trio called Choice, which included Chrissy Conway of the Christian
girl group ZOEgirl. The group signed with LaFace Records and
contributed "Key to My Heart" to the soundtrack of the 1996 film
Kazaam. Choice eventually disbanded before having recorded an album;
Moore remained at LaFace as a solo act.
2000–2001: Can't Take Me Home
Pink's debut album,
Can't Take Me Home, was released in April 2000. A substantial
success, it went double platinum in the U.S., sold four million
copies worldwide and produced two U.S. top ten singles: "There You
Go" and "Most Girls". The album's third single, "You Make Me Sick",
was released towards the end of 2000 and became a smaller top forty
hit in early 2001, and was featured in the film Save the Last Dance.
Pink later acknowledged, in regard to Can't Take Me Home, that she
chose to relinquish creative control to her record label and that
she did not like the music she made at this time or her image, which
included bright pink hair.
In the same year she collaborated with pop singer Christina
Aguilera, rapper Lil' Kim and R&B/pop singer Mıa on a cover of
Labelle's 1975 single "Lady Marmalade" recorded for the soundtrack
of the film Moulin Rouge!. Produced by hip-hop producers Rockwilder
and Missy Elliott, the song topped the charts in countries such as
the U.S., the UK and Australia and won a Grammy Award for "Best Pop
Collaboration with Vocals".
Tired of being marketed as another cookie-cutter pop act and eager
to become a more serious songwriter and musician, Pink took her
sound in a new direction and sought more creative control during the
recording of her second album. She recruited former 4 Non Blondes
vocalist Linda Perry, and together they co-wrote and co-produced
most of the tracks on M!ssundaztood, which was released via Arista
Records in November 2001.
Its lead single "Get the Party Started", written and produced by
Perry, went top five in the U.S. and many other countries. The
album's other singles — "Don't Let Me Get Me", the Dallas
Austin-produced "Just like a Pill", and "Family Portrait" — were
also radio and chart successes, with "Just like a Pill" becoming
Pink's first solo UK number-one hit in September 2002. The success
of the singles, which were substantial hits on Adult Top 40 radio,
pushed the album to gold and platinum status in more than twenty
countries, with worldwide sales of twelve million. The tracks "18
Wheeler" and "Eventually" were rumored as fifth singles, but after
sales that exceeded all expectations, Pink took a short hiatus.
M!ssundaztood was the second-best-selling album in the UK during
2002, and Pink was the best-selling female artist globally. The 2002
Faith Hill album Cry features a song co-written by Pink and Perry
called "If You're Gonna Fly".
2003–2004: Try This
In mid-2003 Pink contributed the song "Feel Good Time" to the
soundtrack of the film Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, in which she
had a cameo appearance as a motorcross race ramp owner/promoter.
"Feel Good Time" was produced by electronic music artist William
Orbit and based on the song "Fresh Garbage" by 60s band Spirit, and
it peaked outside the top forty on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
"Feel Good Time" was included on non-U.S. editions of Pink's third
album Try This, which was released in November 2003. Eight of the
thirteen tracks were co-written with Tim Armstrong of punk band
Rancid, and Linda Perry was featured on the album as a writer and
musician. Though Try This reached the top ten on album charts in the
U.S., Canada, UK and Australia, sales were considerably lower than
those of M!ssundaztood; it sold 709,000 copies in the U.S., and 3.5
million worldwide. The singles "Trouble" and "God Is a DJ" did not
reach the U.S. top forty but went top ten in other countries, and
"Last to Know" was released as a single outside North America.
"Trouble" earned Pink her second Grammy Award (for "Best Female Rock
Vocal Performance") at the 2004 Grammy Awards, and "Feel Good Time"
was nominated in the category of "Best Pop Collaboration with
Vocals". Pink toured extensively through Europe, where the album was
2006–present: I'm Not Dead
Pink's fourth album, I'm Not Dead, was released in April 2006
through LaFace Records. Lead single "Stupid Girls" gave Pink her
biggest U.S. hit since "Just like a Pill" and earned the MTV Video
Music Award for "Best Pop Video", also receiving a Grammy Award
nomination for "Best Female Pop Vocal Performance". Pink worked with
producers Max Martin, billymann, MachoPsycho, Christopher Rojas,
Butch Walker, Lukasz Gottwald, and Josh Abraham on the album, which
charted inside the top ten in sixteen countries.
Subsequent singles "Who Knew" and "U + Ur Hand" were substantial
hits across the world, but only "U + Ur Hand" charted on the U.S.
Hot 100. The fourth single, "Nobody Knows", was only released in
Europe and Australasia. Another track, "Dear Mr. President", is an
open letter to American President George W. Bush. The song topped
the singles chart in Belgium and will be released in the UK as a
double A-side with "Leave Me Alone (I'm Lonely)".
Pink has toured around the world during 2006 and 2007 on her I'm Not
Dead Tour, for which ticket sales in Australia were particularly
high. Her concert on December 4, 2006 in Wembley Arena on the UK leg
of the tour was hosted by London club G-A-Y, and it holds the record
as the UK's biggest indoor gay and lesbian event. A DVD that was
recorded at the December 4, 2006 show is expected on April 20, 2007.
In 2007 she opened for Justin Timberlake on the American leg of his
In 2006 Pink recorded a song in Switzerland with Scottish singer
Annie Lennox, slated to be released a single in 2007. Also in
2006 Pink was chosen to sing the theme song for NBC Sunday Night
Football, "Waiting All Day for Sunday Night", which is a take on "I
Hate Myself for Lovin' You" by Joan Jett. She contributed a cover of
Rufus's "Tell Me Something Good" to the soundtrack of the film Happy
Pink appeared as herself in the films Ski to the Max (2000) and
Rollerball (2002). After her cameo performance in Charlie's Angels:
Full Throttle, Pink looked for another film script and settled on
the horror film Catacombs, which was shot in early 2006 and co-stars
Shannyn Sossamon. "It's pretty intense", Pink said. "It's not only a
sort of slasher type, scary movie; it's also psychological and shows
how mean and cruel siblings can be to one another. I liked that part
of it." Pink was once on the short list of people to play Janis
Joplin in an upcoming biopic titled The Gospel According to Janis,
but she chose not to saying it would be disrespectful to Joplin
because the film makers didn't want to say she died of a heroin
Pink dyes her hair frequently, but she is a natural blond. On The
Ellen Degeneres Show she revealed that there are real diamonds
attached to her teeth. According to her, her dog's name is "Fucker",
which she revealed in a live broadcast for MuchMusic in 2003,
forcing broadcasters to censor the name in subsequent showings. She
later said on Friday Night With Jonathan Ross that her father
adopted this dog and changed its name.
Pink married motocross racer Carey Hart in Costa Rica on January 7,
2006. She proposed to him by holding up a sign for him to see during
one of his races. Before she began her relationship with Hart, she
was rumored to have dated Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
Pink kissed actress Kristanna Loken at the 2003 World Music Awards
in Monte Carlo and said she had a girlfriend at age thirteen.
Pink doesn't identify as gay, but she says most of her friends are
gay and that she's "had her moments." She has worked with the gay
rights group Human Rights Campaign.
Pink is also a prominent campaigner for PETA, contributing her voice
towards causes such as KFC's alleged poor treatment of chicken
before slaughter. She sent a letter to Prince William, criticizing
the Royal Family's guards' usage of bearskin for their headwear. In
November 2006 Pink mentioned in the News of the World that she is
disgusted with fellow singer Beyoncé for wearing animal fur. Pink
has most recently taken on the Australian wool industry over its
practice of mulesing, lending her face and fame to the PETA. In
January 2007 Pink conceded that she had been misled by PETA over the
issue and that she had not done enough research of her own before
lending her name to the campaign.
