The latest celebrity to be affected by the current global pandemic? Bad-girl turned great-mom, pop singer Pink. The songstress (whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore) has revealed all about her diagnosis on Twitter.
And P!nk’s latest social media announcement has confirmed just how prevalent this virus truly is.
She was born Alecia Beth Moore in Doylestown, Pennsylvania in 1979.
She first rose to fame in the girl-group Choice in 1995, when she was just sixteen. Record producers quickly saw her potential for solo stardom.
The album, titled Can’t Take Me Home, was certified double-platinum in the US. It included two top-ten hits, “There You Go” and “Most Girls.” Not bad for the tender age of twenty-one!
She’s sold over 90 million records worldwide, making her one of the best selling musical acts of all time.
She often uses a slightly strained, husky tone to convey the feeling of her music. She’s also known for being an amazingly energetic live performer.
She isn’t one to sit quietly if she disagrees with something, as has been overtly critical of issues such as celebrity culture, misogyny, animal cruelty and homophobia.
The lyrics and accompanying video parodied the biggest celebrities of the age, including Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson, and Paris Hilton.
Many of her song lyrics reference childhood trauma she faced. Her parents struggled with their mental health, and their divorce in Pink’s youth obviously affected her.
You may remember her iconic 2001 collaboration hit “Lady Marmalade,” from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. Alongside Pink, the track featured Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya and Missy Elliott.
Her big vocals on her ballads, such as “Try,” “Don’t Let Me Get Me,” and “Just Like A Pill,” make for perfect singing-along music.
She first captured press attention as a result of her wild and wacky outfits, including her eponymous “pink” hair. This incredible style was for the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards, and certainly turned heads.
She’s shared a roller-coaster of a relationship with professional motor-cross racer, Carey Hart.
The pair met in 2001, and became engaged in 2005, holding up a sign during a motor-cross race asking, “Will you marry me? I’m serious!” Pretty rock ‘n’ roll, if you ask us.
The pair separated in 2008, which provided the inspiration for her hit single, “So What?” Hart actually appeared in the song’s video.
After seeking marriage counselling, the pair announced they were back together in 2010.
Her daughter, Willow Sage Hart, was born in 2011. Pink has been a vocal supporter of attachment parenting, and brought baby Willow along to the 2011 Happy Feet premiere. Cute!
Here she is with the now 7-year-old Willow at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards last month, looking absolutely glowing.
Pink’s second kid was a boy, who she named Jameson Moon Hart. Here they are together in 2019.
And with two absolutely adorable kids, too, it seems Pink has found happiness and stability in her personal life.
Pink has five MTV Music Video Awards, a Brit, and three Grammy Awards. She’s sold over 40 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide, making her one of the world’s best-selling musical artists. Phew!
An incredible career, marriage to her soulmate, and a beautiful family.
But now the star has made a heartbreaking announcement.
She’s the latest celebrity to be hit by the current pandemic.
But she has offered a silver lining – in the form of a generous donation.
And she’s not the only star reaching into her pockets …
