Singer, songwriter. Born Alecia Beth Moore on September 8, 1979, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Pink, as she's otherwise known, gets her name from the movie Reservoir Dogs, a film she saw as a teenager and whose character Mr. Pink is someone her friends all agreed she resembled.
Pink was the second child born to Jim and Judy Moore. She experienced a largely typical middle-class life in a suburb of Doylestown, Philadelphia. Her parents' tense relationship, however, caused the couple to divorce when Pink was 3. Their split and the subsequent demise of the marriage sparked, in part, a rebellious attitude from Pink. "I was never allowed to go over to any of my friends' houses when I was little, because I was a bad influence," she said of her early life. "None of their parents liked me and my own parents were scared to death of me— and for me."
Instead, Pink found solace in music, and as early as the age of 13 she was navigating the complicated Philly club scene. By the time she was 14, she was already an experienced vocalist and dancer, and started to write her own songs. She also had a regular singing gig every Friday night at a Philly nightclub. But it proved to be a hard life for her to manage, as she was swallowed by a world of drugs (she nearly overdosed at the age of 15) and petty crime. She eventually dropped out of high school before returning to earn her G.E.D. in 1998.
Pinks Personal Life...
Away from the record studio, Pink's life was also evolving. She married her boyfriend, Motocross star Carey Hart, in Costa Rica, after proposing to him during one of his races. But like her parents marriage, Pink's union with Hart proved to be tumultuous, and just two years after they exchanged vows, the couple separated. Her fifth album, Funhouse (2008), drew from the raw emotions she was feeling from her recent divorce. It also proved to be a huge commercial success, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard chart, and inspiring a wild, worldwide tour that featured the artist performing blindfolded and—in some instances—singing upside-down on a trapeze.As always, music helped Pink to heal, and the reflection on her crumbling relationship with Hart helped the couple reunite. After much speculation, Pink revealed in a February 2010 interview withOprah Winfrey that she and her husband were back together. The singer told Winfrey that her separation from Hart taught her valuable lessons about herself, and how to better function in a marriage. The couple now resides in Malibu, California.Despite her tough girl image, Pink has also shown a softer side to the public. An outspoken advocate for the better treatment of animals, Pink has put her celebrity behind campaigns sponsored by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animlas (PETA). In February 2009, Pink also donated a considerable sum of money toward a fund to help Australians affected by a large brush fire that swept through Victoria.

The star confessed in September that she was eager to add to her brood. “I’m ready,” she told Access Hollywood, adding that if she wasn’t about to go on tour she’d “be barefoot and pregnant in my garden”.But while it looks like Pink has sped up her concert schedule, Australian fans shouldn’t worry about her cancelling The Truth About Love tour, kicking off in Perth this week. After all, this is the rocker who performed her single Raise Your Glass at the American Music Awards when she was four months pregnant with Willow.Tackk about that bike you have for sale.
