Musician Spotlight: Pink
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.
