Is she off somewhere writing more songs about being a "freak" and a "rebel" and rallying calls for teenage losers to 'raise their glass' and such?
Yeah I like her, but she's a little long in the tooth for the outcast anthems aimed at unpopular high school chubby girls she sings to.
Will she come back with something new and better to spotlight her singing voice, or just more hard-pop anthems?
One of the funniest things I ever read on this site was the suggestion that we form a flash mob at Betty Ford's funeral to "Raise Your Glass."
Those awful anthems tend to be her worst songs. There were many good tracks on her last album, but I don't think any of them were singles. R1, that's hilarious.
" Hey all the loser kids rally around
Raise yer hands in the air, make a huge rockin' sound!
We're the freaks and the geeks and we like to party too
So raise ya beer in the air if yer too school for cool!
Yeah yeah, cause I said it's a freak generation, let yer freak flags fly!! yeah yeah yeah! CHOSE LIFE! "
PINK!'s soon-to-be album cover song.
She had a baby not too long ago
Who cares? That faux-punk rocker shit was irritating as hell.
Aw, I like Alecia.
She just had a baby and is taking time off I guess.
I don't love all her stuff but I do think she can sing. Maybe she'll tone it down and do something a little more sophisticated. I hope so.
[quote]Aw, I like Alecia.
Aw, who gives a fuck?
It's P!NK. Can't you fucking spell?
I give a fuck, R8. I do. I like her too. She's fucking hilarious, a great singer, and she can put on a kick-ass live show.
Take your negativity and get the fuck out. The world has no need for it.
I used to work with her aunt who was so humorless that even the nuns at the hospital thought she should lighten up. I totally got what Pink was rebelling against if the rest of her family was as uptight as her aunt.
Really R6/R8, what's your damage?
She's about due for a new album.
She's not going anywhere soon, either. She's big in the States, but huge in Europe.
She posted a letter on her website:
A Letter To My Fans...
People of The World!!!
How the hell are you? I trust you are all well.....
I AM CRANKING ALONG!!!!
Things are going swimmingly, in the studio, as a mommy. My goodness gracious, how life has changed!!!!!!
Studio sessions used to go well into the night... I can vaguely remember having keys confiscated, passing out on Butch Walker's couch a couple of times using a packing blanket as a cover...... These days "bottle service" is more like "bottle warmer"..... but where I used to excel in my drinking capabilities, this time I'm excelling in productivity and vocals... and boobs. boobs boobs everywhere. That little girl can eat. TMI
I am soo soo soo excited for all of you to hear what we've been working on...
I think it's good. I really do- but who cares what I think, right? What matters most is how you feel about it.....
I'm putting my heart and soul into every song and there's a lot of that these days. This little girl has expanded me and what I am capable of feeling as a human. Let's hope it shows:)
Really looking forward to seeing all of you again, dusting off the old dancing shoes and learning some new tricks :)
Thanks again for all the "I Miss You's" and all the constant love. My heart is full. Thank you.
And I love that fan dork dance video. I'm gonna have to seriously step up my geek game- or put Willow to work....
all my lovin' xxx
saw her with her baby daddy and baby at the omelette parlous in venice. She was totally lowkey and down to earth, being a good mom to the kid, relaxed and laughing and looking suprisingly pretty. Not a drop of makeup and amazing luminous skin. Shes much lovlier in real life
When is she ditching the merkin?
R14 = R16 = Sad fangurl.
I keep trying to post a link to her new video but it gets rejected. Please look for it - for the song Try. Omg the dancer and the choreography is smokin' hot.
She has a couple of hits out again. Her career is doing just fine.
R18 you need to put the link in the URL: box, not in the message body.
Here it is. Thanks R20!
The song is so/so in me humble opinion but damn this video is hot!
[quote]Pink is also trying to look like Miley Cyrus with that awful haircut and white color
Oh please. P!nk was wearing that style before Miley even knew what a Hannah Montana was.
I don't know the first thing about Pink other than she has a lot of tattoos, but the letter to her fans at R14 really made me like her. Hopefully, she's like that IRL and she's put those drinking days behind her.
Sorry R24 but she looks like Miley Cyrus with that hair. They're both cunts so I guess it's fine in the end.
She's doing commercials for Cover Girl cosmetics.
The song Blow Me One Last Kiss was a huge hit recently.
This isn't a chicken and egg type of question. Pink in that kind of a hairstyle preceded Miley Cyrus and her haircut by at least a decade. It would be accurate to say that Miley Cyrus looks like Pink.
She can't sing live and never has either. And that song and dance with the Miley Cyrus hair is just....vomit inducing. AUTOTUNE yuck!
Pinks albums are actually decent, but the girl is way too full of herself. I remember an interview once where she described herself as the first female Rock star and that she opened doors for all the new up and coming female rockers.
She seems to be clueless that she's a pop star that wants to be rock.
Wow, OP is kind of a hateful prick.
[quote]And that song and dance with the Miley Cyrus hair
What are all you bitches, 15 or something? P!nk had the cropped platinum hair way before Miley Fucking Cyrus.
The Truth About Love album is really good. Very grown up songs on there.
Whoever said she can't sing live, what in the hell are you talking about? She is one of the rare pop stars who sound BETTER live than on their recorded music.
Stink's songs blow. Overproduced, autotuned, cliched garbage. Why can't she just go away?
I don't like her. She tries so hard to come off as a rocker, but all of her music is polished, radio-friendly, generic pop music with typical Top 40 guitar riffs thrown in. I also get sick of her pro-PETA shit.
I loved her during her urban/LA Reid phase too. She didn't become all "rocker chick" until her second album. "Most Girls" is one of the many jams from her first, R&B-laced album.
There was also that interview she gave about the Lady Marmalade cover.
She tries to call out Christina and her Management for being douchebags and says that Christina's Manager came into the meeting, didn't acknowledge anyone and said, "Which is the high part and the longest part, Christina will be taking those."
Pink says she stood up, introduced herself, and effectively said, "and no Christina will NOT be taking those parts."
I always thought it was a stupid story to tell since... I don't know, Christina did in fact take those parts, so Pink should just shut the fuck up.
What's with all the faux-angst songs? This bitch has been rich and famous since she was 19, so what's she so angry about? Bitch, please! She needs to grow up.
P!nk was also a bit sore about how Christina latched on to Linda Perry as a producer after P!nk had already had so much success with Linda on her "Missundaztood" album.
R23: Wow. I clicked out of curiosity (I'm not a strong Pink fan) and that performance is stunning in its beauty. One of the best Grammy moments ever. Thanks for sharing it.
[quote]I loved her during her urban/LA Reid phase too. She didn't become all "rocker chick" until her second album. "Most Girls" is one of the many jams from her first, R&B-laced album.
I like that album of hers too (the only album of hers I liked). And like most white performers, she used the black audience and black sound to get famous, and then dropped her black audience and R&B as soon as she got famous enough to do what she wanted to do in the first place. So typical.
Yeah, I remember that. Pink needs to grow up. She felt "betrayed" by Perry since Perry went to work with Aguilera. Grow up, Pink, is Perry only supposed to work with you?
She likes to pretend she's this big rebel but then she works with the same producers all the other pop tarts work with. Real rebellious there, Pink.
Well, R45, to be hones, Linda Perry was just that chick from 4 Non Blondes that nobody remembered before she produced P!nk's second album (the massive hit "Get This Party Started", etc.). Linda's success from that album made her the in-producer du jour.
P!nk once told the story about how, during her rebellious teenaged years, she stood outside her parents' bedroom window screaming the lyrics to 4 Non Blonde's "What's Up?"
R46, I think Perry is the exception. Pink has worked with Babyface, Max Martin, Dr. Luke, and Blow Me One Last Kiss was produced by the same guy who did Kelly Clarkson's Stronger.
P!nk has a brother who is never talked about in her bios or in her Behind The Music video. They show pics of them as little kids together, but then they never followup with any info about him, like what he is doing and if he is still close with the family. I wonder what is up with that?
Overall Pink's had a much more consistently successful career than Christina so she got the last laugh.
I'm not a big fan of her music but I respect that she can actually sing and stands for something more meaningful than taking off her clothes and getting fucked (looking at you Ri Ri).
I love the idea of Pink. I think of all current celebrities, she's the one I'd most like to party with. She very gay friendly. And she's funny in interviews.
But. I HATE her songs. They're so trite and overproduced, and her voice is always straining - in Blow Me One Last Kiss, the part where she sings "just when it can't get worse" is like screeching. Ugh.
Doesn't anybody care about how hot the dancer is in the video I posted? Who cares about her hair?!
He is VERY hot, R51. So hot that I don't see how she couldn't forget about her very hot husaband Cary Hart husband for however long it took to film it.
r21, his body is nice but face is meh.
LMAO! OP's take on P!NK (or however the fuck she writes her name) is so spot on.
He music is bubblegum pop but she markets it as edgy "chick rock" and it seems to work for her.
I like her but it's true, she's really long in the tooth to keep trying to pull off the edgy, rebellious outsider shtick. Plus she's rich and can no longer relate.
She needs a new act soon or she's going to fade away. Most of her original key fanbase have moved on, become educated, had babies, etc. etc.
I would have liked to have seen her front an actual rock band.
She had relevance in the beginning of her career as the anti-Britney-Xtina but after that the songs are pretty generic and interchangeable with Kelly Clarkson.
Grammy performance was great though.
If she wants to market herself to teen and tween girls who's she hurting? As another poster said, she doesn't take the slutty low road in her music or her marketing.
Her "rebellious" lyrics are mostly about having self-respect, a message that is very positive for young girls in this f'ed up world.
[quote] Her "rebellious" lyrics are mostly about having self-respect, a message that is very positive for young girls in this f'ed up world.
No, fanfrau, they're not.
I love her and her music. I have seen her life and she was fantastic. Will be seeing her again on her UK tour in April. Looking forward to it.
Like another poster said she is gay friendly and that's genuine. Her best friend is gay. She's not the type to pretend to be gay friendly to get the pink pound like Madonna and Lady Gaga.
I'm not really a fan but her new record is doing way better than new records from Xtina, No Doubt, and other "nostalgia" acts. She'll probably do another huge tour that includes her now signature aerial work. At least she's giving her fans a show for their money.
Yay for her for being gay friendly. But it still doesn't explain why she keeps trying to play herself off as an angst-ridden, rebellious teen.
[quote]Her "rebellious" lyrics are mostly about having self-respect,
You're joking, right? Songs like "PLEASE PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME" are somehow empowering to teen girls?
She has a great voice, I hope she begins using it for grown up music.
So "Give Me Just a Reason" is another #1 hit for her. No idea how that awful tuneless mess of a song got to #1; even the fans thought the album was crap.
R61 I liked her when she first came out, but after all these years, the whole "teen angst" lyrics are getting really tiresome. She's in her 30's now and needs to try growing up. And all of her songs sound the same lately.
Because Clear Channel rigs the charts, R61
I heard that Pink's grandma is Tabitha from the hairdressing world of reality tv. Is this true?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
