musician PINK goes fashionably girly
PINK is looking girly these days, especially now that she’s on an upcoming fashion mag cover. It’s a “new Top 40 landscape these days,” and Pennsylvania-born Alecia Moore, known to us as Pink changed the game since her debut in 2000 with her tough-chick music. With a two-year old toddler Willow Sage, an on-again marriage with motocross racer Carey Hart, a major beauty contract, and massive Top 40 success, is it possible Pink has left the whole bad-girl routine behind? No. No, it is not. Pink tells Glamour a fits bit for her June cover. Check out her mighty gorgeousness, captured by Ellen von Unwerth, and some PINK quotes from her interview.
G: And now you’re a “f–kin’ rock star.”
PINK: I believe there’s 31 flavors to be tasted.… I’m just living my life. I don’t want to be your kind of good.“
On the word Slut.. a big word in the Pink glossary.
PINK: It’s my very unsophisticated way of taking the power back. I’ve always had an issue with [the idea that]: “OK, we’ve both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you’re the player? You didn’t get anything from me that I didn’t get from you.”
G: Going back further, you’ve said you started singing to distract your parents from fighting. What songs would you sing?
PINK: Shifting the focus, yeah. I sang “Wind Beneath My Wings,” and “Hero” by Mariah. And “Oh Father” by Madonna. That was my first win at a talent show. A lot of Annie too…[Singing] “The sun’ll come out tomorrow.…”
on the the name Willow Sage.
PINK: I love the idea that a willow tree cannot be snapped or broken. And we burn sage all the time. It clears bad energy.
G: What’s the last thing you fought about? (with Carey)
PINK: [She yells to the next room.] Carey! What was the last thing we fought about? Oh, I know! You not getting me flowers and being a douchebag. That was it.
G: Flowers? Really? A badass like you wanted flowers?
PINK: He needed to get me flowers after I had a big show. Hear that, Carey? I’m throwing you to 17 million wolves [Glamour readers] right now, buddy.
