Alecia Moore, also known as P!nk, is a massive pop star. Ask any fan for P!nk trivia, and they'll tell you that she's won Grammys, topped the charts, and blown away audiences with her aerial, acrobatic performances. But these aren't the only reasons why listeners adore her. P!nk is a great role-model as well.
P!nk stories prove that she's independent, fearless, kind, and completely hilarious. Who contributes to tons of charities? P!nk. Who started out singing at nightclubs and slinging fries at McDonald's? P!nk. Who challenged beauty conventions with her sometimes pink, sometimes spiky, always memorable hair? Definitely P!nk. She's as devoted a mother as she is a fierce performer, and she somehow makes it all look easy.
If you don't already know why P!nk is great, these stories will clue you in.
P!nk is all about body positivity. She posted this photo to Instagram after giving birth to her second baby, with the caption: "Would you believe I'm 160 pounds and 5'3"? By 'regular standards' that makes me obese. I know I'm not at my goal or anywhere near it after Baby 2 but dammit I don't feel obese. The only thing I'm feeling is myself. Stay off that scale ladies!"
P!nk gets starstruck, too. She told Entertainment Weekly how intimidated she was to ask Eminem to collaborate with her on a track:
"I sneak-attacked him. [Producer] Max [Martin] and I started making ['Revenge'], and I wrote this rap. We were drinking a lot of wine, and then I went home and I thought more wine would be a good idea. I emailed [Eminem]. This is why they call it liquid courage. And I said, ‘You know I love you. I like that you work with a lot of the same people, like Rihanna. She’s hotter than me, but I’m funnier. So I’m going for a rap Grammy, and I’d like to take you along with me.’
It was this long email, and he wrote back right away and just said, ‘Okay.’"
P!nk is an expert in getting spooky. The Hart family has an amazing track record of adorable group Halloween costumes.
P!nk uses her powers for good. She is an official UNICEF ambassador, a PETA spokesperson, and has worked with GLAAD, Greenpeace, the Make A Wish Foundation, and many other nonprofits.
