We know her as the multi-awarded singer who topped many charts worldwide. This year, she has been named most beautiful woman by People magazine.
Goalcast tells the story of Pink and how she has blazed a trail to become one of the world’s most influential pop icons.
Her childhood wasn’t easy. She battled a fatal breathing disorder. Her parents divorced, and her dad walked out.
Devastated, Pink used poetry as an outlet to deal with her feelings.
She found solace in music. She joined an R&B group twice but the band never took off. Until one producer gave her an ultimatum: Go solo or go home.
Determined to make a name for herself and finally release a record, Pink got back into the studio. Unlike before, she wrote songs she wanted to hear, not songs people expected her to sing.
Her first album, “Can’t Take Me Home,” was a mega hit and went double platinum. Soon everyone knew her name while she toured with popular boy band N’ Sync.
But not everyone loved her. She had haters.
“They say I look like a boy or I’m too masculine or I have too many opinions, my body is too strong,” Pink tells Goalcast.
But this did not stop her from continuing to embrace herself and her voice, turning her childhood poem about her parent’s divorce into a heartfelt song.
“I went into the studio and I didn’t know what I was going to sing and 20 minutes later I was crying,” Pink recalls.
“Family Portrait” peaked in the Top 20 and resonated with millions of fans worldwide.
Both her parents cried when they heard the song after realizing how their divorce had affected her.
“We opened up communications as a family,” she says. “And now, when we sit at the dinner table, we really ask each other how we are.”
Pink teamed up with Christina Aguilera to release “Lady Marmalade,” winning the MTV award for Video of the Year and bagging her very first Grammy.
Her marriage was something she had to work on.
After proposing to her boyfriend by holding up a sign during one of his races, they separated two years later.
Just like in her childhood, Pink turned to music to heal herself releasing her smash hit album, “Funhouse.” Working on the album forced Pink to reflect on her marriage and where they went wrong. After talking out their problems, the couple reunited a year later and became stronger than ever.
She continues to make music for others to find love even in the darkest of times.
“For me, there is only love and fear,” she concludes.
Named this year's most beautiful woman by People magazine and praised as "one of the most beloved and fascinating entertainers on the planet," P!nk blazed a trail to become one of the world's most influential pop icons. Twenty years later, she has yet to give up her throne. This is her incredible true story.
