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.

Biography

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".

2001–2002: M!ssundaztood

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 better received.

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 FutureSex/LoveShow Tour.

In 2006 Pink recorded a song in Switzerland with Scottish singer Annie Lennox, slated to be released a single in 2007.[10] 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 Feet.

Acting career

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 overdose.

Personal life

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.[13] 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.
