She released her first single "There You Go" and first album, the R&B-oriented Can't Take Me Home, in 2000 (16 years ago) via LaFace Records, which garnered commercial success. Her more pop rock-oriented second studio album, Missundaztood, which began a marked shift in the sound of her music, was released in 2001 (15 years ago), and was successful worldwide. Pink released her third album, Try This, in Nov. 2003 (13 years ago), and her fourth in Apr. 2006 (10 years ago), I'm Not Dead.

Early yearsPink was born Alecia Moore in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Judith Moore, a nurse, and James Moore, Jr, a Vietnam veteran. Her father is Catholic and her mother Jewish, and her ancestors immigrated from Ireland, Germany,and Lithuania. Pink grew up in Doylestown, where she attended Kutz Elementary School, Klinger Middle School, and Central Bucks West High School. Her father played guitar and sang songs for her, and from an early age she aspired to be a rock star.
In high school, Pink joined her first band, Middleground, which had an ongoing rivalry with another local band, The Jetsists. Middleground folded upon losing a battle of the bands competition to The Jetsists. According to Pink, her biggest influences are Bette Midler, Janis Joplin, Steven Tyler, Bob Dylan, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Billy Joel, Indigo Girls, Don McLean, 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G.
Pink developed her voice early in life. Although a healthy baby at birth, she quickly developed asthma that plagued her through her early years. When she was a teenager, Pink 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." She began performing in Philadelphia clubs when she was fourteen years old. At sixteen, she joined the R&B Atlanta-based trio Choice, which included Chrissy Conway of the Christian girl group ZOEgirl.
The group signed with LaFace Records and contributed "Key to My Heart" to the soundtrack of the 1996 (20 years ago) movie Kazaam. Choice eventually disbanded after recording an unreleased album; Pink remained at LaFace as a solo act under the stage name Pink.Which was from Steve Buscemi's character in the 1992 (24 years ago) movie Reservoir Dogs. Daryl Simmons took her to recordings where she sang backing vocals for artists such as Diana Ross, 98 Degrees, Kenny Lattimore, and Tevin Campbell.
Pink met professional motocross racer Carey Hart at the 2001 (15 years ago) X Games in Philadelphia. Hart had previously been screened in Pinks early music video clip "Just Like a Pill". In 2005 (11 years ago) Pink proposed to Hart during a Mammoth Lakes, California motocross race by holding up a "Will you marry me?" sign on his pit board. On the other side was written "I'm Serious!". They married in Costa Rica on Jan. 7, 2006 (10 years ago).
After months of speculation, Pink's publicist, Michele Schweitzer, told PEOPLE magazine on Feb. 19, 2008 (8 years ago), that the singer and Carey Hart had separated. "This decision was made by best friends with a huge amount of love and respect for one another", Schweitzer said. The video for her 2008 (8 years ago) hit "So What", in which Hart appears, deals with her separation and pending divorce.
In Mar. 2009 (7 years ago), Carey Hart revealed in an interview for SpeedFreaks that he and Pink were 'dating'. Carey has also confirmed on Jason Ellis' Sirius XM radio show, The Chelsea Lately Show & The Best Damn Sports show that he and Pink are attempting to work things out stating: "Sometimes you have to take a couple of steps back to move forward."[citations needed] Pink has stated that the couple has gone to marriage counseling and have gotten back together and have never been legally divorced.

Pink, a vegetarian, is a prominent campaigner for PETA, contributing her voice toward causes such as protesting against KFC. She sent a letter to Prince William criticizing him for fox hunting and one to Queen Elizabeth II protesting the use of real fur in the bearskins of the Foot Guards and the Honourable Artillery Company. In Nov. 2006 (10 years ago), Pink mentioned in the News of the World that she was disgusted with fellow singer Beyoncé for wearing fur. In conjunction with PETA, she criticized the Australian wool industry over its use of mulesing only after selling out her Australian tour dates. In Jan. 2007 (9 years ago), she stated that she had been misled by PETA about mulesing and that she had not done enough research before lending her name to the campaign. Her campaigning led to a headlining concert in Cardiff, Wales on Aug. 21, 2007 (9 years ago) called PAW (Party for Animals Worldwide). This highlighted her involvement with animal cruelty problems, as well as her unwavering commitment to contributing her voice toward such causes.
Pink is involved with many charities including "Phoenix vert", Human Rights Campaign, ONE Campaign, Prince's Trust, New York Restoration Project, Run For The Cure Foundation, Save the Children, Take Back the Night, UNICEF and World Society for the Protection of Animals. As of May 2008 (8 years ago) Pink has been officially recognized as an advocate for the RSPCA in Australia. On Feb. 16, 2009 (7 years ago), Pink announced she was donating $250,000 to the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal to aid the victims of the bushfires that swept through the Australian state of Victoria earlier that month (a total of 173 people died in the fires, with around 500 injured, and 4000 homes lost). Pink claimed that she wanted to make "a tangible expression of support".
