I'd really really love if she worked with David LaChapelle at this point in her career. It's like she erased all sex appeal she had for this wholesome all-American mom thing. :deadbanana4:

 

And even more if she landed on Rolling Stone again. It's a shame she doesn't have a cover but it's probably never happening. :dancehall3:

Bloodflowers.

if P!nk were a judge on American Idol, I'd sign up just so I could sing either Fingers or You Make Me Sick to her :jonny2:

I think that a greatest hits goes really well with a documentary about her career, don't you guys agree? 

 

Hope she can see it too

Or an album with recorded acoustic/stripped down versions of some of her biggest hits. I’d be down for that too. Maybe alongside another GH album?

It would be one amazing way of making a Greatest Hits album relevant in the streaming era. Making it acoustic/different versions, because otherwise, it will be just a playlist for those streaming

^ that way maybe we will hear her sing JLAP in full acoustically. That tiny little moment on TV Total back in the day was already glorious ♥️

Yes!!! Let’s do a track list for an acoustic GH album.... (no particular order honestly)

 

1. Just Like A Pill

2. Who Knew

3. Raise Your Glass

4. Just Give Me A Reason (ft. Dallas Green)
5. Don’t Let Me Get Me

6. Me & Bobby McGee

7. There You Go

8. Perfect
9. Walk Me Home

10. Sober

11. What About Us *piano version*

12. *new track*

13. *new track*

14. Cover Me In Sunshine (ft. Willow)

15. You and Me

 

I thought replacing Nate with Dallas on JGMAR would be better for an acoustic version, and it could help promote You+Me for a possible second album. Which is why I also added You and Me on as well.

I really hope the doc shows more of her as a musician, how she prepares for the insane tour stunts and don't focus on the whole soccer mom m.o. she adopted since TTAL.

I mean, look at the poster. It will be all about Willow and Jamo, and if we're lucky, we'll get the complete show, and not everything choped

I think we're getting more of a doc than a concert so we're screwed regardless lol. It would be cool to see her working on H2BH while doing the tour, deciding to make it an album instead of an ep but that's a long period to cover and yes, those kids and Carey will also be front and center.

 

Just want to see more of that badass musician from the first part of her career.

When i heard the title, I definitely thought the doc was to be based around more how she balances touring with family. Like how Adele asked Pink how she does it, I think she will explore this and then will be able to show that “badass” side when she puts the kids to bed and then swings.

P!nk Forever

I just ran through the Internet Archive and discovered her first biography. 

I guess she had a lot of n00bs running her site cause it all looks amateurish.:gaycat5:

 

Quote

Pink, at only 19, is a young woman with the experience of many lifetimes, Iím a very extreme person.  I went through a lot of phases growing up, and for every one, I was extreme, confides Pink, the latest R&B/pop artist to emerge from the hugely successful, LaFace Records camp. From skateboarder to hip-hopper to rave child to lead singer of a rock band Ė I did it all, and all at the same time.

 

Looking at Pink, itís easy to believe that she skillfully mastered each of her extremes.  With a shock of pink hair, sharply focused blue eyes hinting of a rebellious streak and an abundance of self-confidence, but she is also a bewildered girl who is just now finding her place on this planet, a strong person with a million lessons to teach and even more to learn.  Sheís seen a lot, done a lot, and she now stands on the fault line between the angst of adolescence and the knowledge of adulthood.

And thus, Pink is filled with self-discovery, having written over half of the dozen songs on her self-titled album herself Pink offers insight into her tumultuous world where life is not always flowers and chocolate.

 

I decided at 15 that I didnít want to be one of those artists that gets up and sings love songs they donít mean, Pink explains of the songs that appear on her debut album.  I decided that I was going to be me to the fullest extent, that my songs were going to reflect  relationships Iíve had, things Iíve been through, and even the stuff Iím embarrassed about.

 

My dad always played guitar and taught me songs by Dylan and McLean, Pink recalls.  But his love of music left an indelible mark on Pink.  Ever since I can remember, I think before I could talk, I sang she continues.  I just ran around the house making up my own fantasy world. 

 

By the time she was barely a teen, Pink had navigated the precarious waters of the Philly club scene.  Any time not spent testing authority at high school was spent tearing up the dance floor, and eventually, the stage.

 

I met this guy named Skratch, who was the best dancer in Philly, she says of her thirteenth year.  I started dancing with him and eventually I was singing hooks in the background for his rap group, Schools of Thought.  I wrote some of my own stuff, about the way it was growing up in Philly.  We would just get up on the stage at clubs, and hang out in studios hoping to get some songs down on tape.  At the time, making music was medicine.

 

Calling upon Mary, Janis Joplin, the Supremes, Shirley Murdock, Donna Hathaway and Madonna for inspiration, Pink laid down her first self-written song at fourteen.  But she really got her groove on not in the studio, but in clubs.  I went regularly on Friday nights to Club Fever, where the DJ gave me a guest spotlight, Pink laughs.  My little five minutes on Friday night was all I wanted out of life.  I loved the thrill of being on stage.  It was the only place that I felt like, okay, Iím cool now. Being heckled only boosted Pinkís ambitions.

 

One late Friday night, a rep from MCA came round the club, looking for a singer to fill out her new R&B group.  She liked Pinkís sound, and asked her to audition for a group called Basic Instinct.  She got the gig practically on the spot, but the group fizzled quickly.  I didnít fit in, quips Pink. But I didnít care.  You have to laugh at stuff like that.  And anyway, I donít see myself as belonging to any group.

 

Nonetheless, another group instantly snapped up Pink as one of three female leads.  This one, named Choice, made a ten-cent demo and was immediately signed to LaFace.  The group didnít last Ė one wanted to sing Broadway tunes, the other wanted to make alternative records and Pink wanted to do it all Ė but Pinkís place in the LaFace stable was solidified. In fact, it was during studio time with Choice in Atlanta that Pink rediscovered her writing abilities and hooked up Darryl Simmons.  He asked me to write the bridge for ĎJust to be Loving Youí I thought that was so cool, because no one had even asked me if I wrote.  So I just closed my eyes and out it came.  I wrote that, and it was the beginning of my career.

 

It was also the emergence of Pinkís powerful soprano, which is capable of taking sharp dives and hairpin turns through multiple octaves.  I had gotten really good at emulating other peopleís sounds, from singing at the clubs, she says.  But the day we recorded ĎJust to Be Loving Youí for Choice in the studio, that song was so beautiful, I just sang.  I didnít care what I sounded like.  It just came out and shocked me

 

Pink began writing songs to display her vocal ability and love of the pop side of R&B at a feverish pace.  When she approached L.A. Reid with her songs, he was floored.  I kept playing him my songs and going, What about this one?  What about these?  she remembers.  And he was like, yeah, I like that one, yeah thatís a single. He looked at me as a self-contained unit, which he thought was interesting.  Itís always been really cool with him.  Reid signed Pink up as a solo artist and hooked her up with various writing partners Ė from Sheí kspeare to, Babyface and 112.

There U Go the debut single, which displays the versatility of her voice and the wickedness of her plume, will undoubtedly place Pink on the map.

 

If this is just the surface, we canít wait to see what mysteries lurk below.
