“I’ve never won the popularity contest,” she said over the roasted chicken and vegetables she declared “mostly cooked.” “I was never as big as Britney or Christina. If you look at any paragraph about pop music, I don’t get mentioned — my name doesn’t come up. And yet, here I go again, right under the wave, duck-diving.”

 

“I had the whole sit-down, you know: ‘Just be prepared, they don’t play girls over 35 on Top 40 radio,’” the singer said. “There are exceptions, but they’re songs, not artists — unless you’re Beyoncé.”

Thoughts ?

I never would have thought she would even care about something like that. :toofunny2:

Tea tbh.  “They’re songs, not artists” is so true. I mean a name helps, but they’re not going to play everything you put out like they’d be more inclined to do if you were a younger big name.

Yup. Almost top 10 radio combined. She is still smashing on the radio.

Pop radio doesn’t play Bey. Only urban and rhythmic.

That's what her label warned her when she was kicking off the new era. It's her comeback in 5 years and she's clearly not young anymore.

 

Y'all are so obtuse.

What P!nk said are in double quotes, what P!nk said her label told her are in single quotes. The part relating to Beyoncé was not told to P!nk by her label; at least that's what the article is suggesting. The interviewer may have misunderstood P!nk, though.
