Happy B-Day P!nk!

Alecia Beth Moore (born on September 8, 1979), known professionally as Pink (often stylized as P!nk), is a two-time Grammy-winning American singer-songwriter.

She’s 29!

Pink released her first record, the R&B-oriented Can’t Take Me Home, in 2000 via LaFace Records. Her pop rock-based second studio album, M!ssundaztood, was released in 2001 and is her biggest seller to date.

 

 

Her third album, 2003’s Try This, failed to match the success of M!ssundaztood. After taking a break, Pink released her fourth studio album, I’m Not Dead (2006), which was successful worldwide. Pink has so far sold over 25 million albums worldwide. Her upcoming album, Funhouse, will be released in October 2008.

Pink was born in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, a very traditional suburban town, to Vietnam veteran Jim Moore and nurse Judy Kugel. She is of German and Irish ancestry on her father’s side, and is Lithuanian-Jewish on her mother’s side.

She grew up in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where she attended Central Bucks West High School. Her high school boyfriend Jamie Stem also attended Central Bucks West, and is the singer of the rock band Sinch. Her father played guitar and sang songs for her, and from an early age she aspired to be a rock star. When in high school, Pink joined her first band called Middleground, which never gained popularity beyond local status.

According to Pink, her biggest influences are Janis Joplin, Steven Tyler, Bad Religion, Mary J. Blige, Bob Marley, Billy Joel, Indigo Girls, Don McLean, 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G.

Personal Life:

 

Pink met Carey Hart at the 2001 X Games in Las Vegas. Pink proposed to the motocross racer in 2005 by doing his pit boarding and then asking him to marry her during one of his races in Mammoth Lakes, California by holding up a sign saying the classic phrase “Will you marry me?”. On the other side was written “I’m Serious!” After Hart read the sign, he almost caused an accident. They married in Costa Rica on January 7, 2006 at sunset.

After months of speculation, Pink’s publicist, Michele Schweitzer, told PEOPLE magazine on February 19, 2008, 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,” Ms Schweitzer said.

Pink is currently single and is living in Los Angeles, California.
