The American singer-songwriter and actress was born on September 8, 1979 in Abington Township, Pennsylvania, United States. During her early age her father played guitar that inspired Pink to be a pop star.
As a teenager, she wrote lyrics as an outlet for her feelings, and her mother commented, “Her initial writings were always very introspective. Some of it was very black, and very deep, almost worrisome.
The 34-year-old Pink already achieved a lot in the field of music industry. Some of her fans really owed with her talent and the moment that she entered the stage, she gathered a lot of applause from the crowd. Pink considered as the most successful artists of her generation, having sold over 100 million records worldwide as of 2013. Her career accolades include three Grammy Awards, a Brit Award and six MTV Video Music Awards.
Pink has had 19 top-twenty hits on the Billboard Hot 100. Billboard also made the following statement: “When the 2013 mid-year numbers were released, she had the top-selling album and song for a woman, and a blockbuster, sold-out, international arena tour,” the magazine’s editorial director Bill Werde said in a statement.
Pop singer Pink has been named Billboard’s Woman of the Year after scoring her first ever No. 1 album this year, the music industry trade magazine. Pink will be honored with the award at Billboard’s annual Women in Music event in New York in December.
“It’s been an incredible year and I feel so grateful to radio for sticking by me, and to the fans and friends and all of the incredible talent that I was fortunate enough to work with for this album,” Pink said in a statement.
