Musician Spotlight: Pink

with 5 comments


With today’s bubble-gum pop music, it seems rare that a musician in this genre is authentic. When Alecia Moore, aka Pink, came on the map on her own terms in 2001 with the album Missundaztood, it was the start of something new.

Pink is known for having soulful vocals similar to that of Christina Aguilera. However, Pink’s music is different from Christina’s in that it focuses on things that are personal or things that she observed around her.

For instance, Missundazstood was mostly a personal album that focused on Pink’s experiences with her parents’ divorce, the angst and loneliness that came with it, and what she did to numb herself from her personal pain. At the same time, it is also about celebrating and being proud about doing her music the way she wanted to.

Songs from the album:


I’m Not Dead, another album by Pink, is the album that starts her social/political observations of the world in addition to being personal.

Song from the album:

 

Today, Pink is still releasing songs that are personal and relatable to others. For that, she is a true pop star.

  1. I love a bit of Pink! Her song Just Like A Pill still sounds excellent even now. I love her recent song Perfect as well, you can always tell that she’s so genuine when she sings.

    • My favorite songs are Perfect and Raise Your Glass. My favorite videos are “Stupid Girls”, “Perfect”, and “Raise Your Glass”. I liked Pink’s black-pink hair in the “Just Like a Pill” video and Pink’s red hair in the “U + Ur Hand” video though; she looked awesome in them!

      Have you heard Pink’s newest song “Bridge of Light”? It’s from the movie Happy Feet 2, where she also played the voice of Gloria the penguin. I haven’t seen it yet though, but I want to 🙂

  3. Me too, I like Pink. She is underated for folks try to put her to a specific genre when she has fallen into several.

    • I know, right? I made a station for Pink on lastfm radio and Pink’s music got put with Katy Perry and Britney Spears and other pop stars whose music doesn’t even match with Pink’s sound.
