P!nk, real name Alecia Moore, was born on this very day 1979. Making the pop-punk princess 34-years-old.
P!nk began her career as a bobbins R&B singer in 2000, and increased her profile the following year by recording a shite cover version of Lady Marmalade with three other commercial pop acts for the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack. In 2002 the feisty fittie teamed up with former 4 Non Blondes singer Linda Perry and managed to convince her management to let her record a far more punky album which was to be her biggest success.
Missundaztood drastically widened P!nk’s audience and scored her a quick succession of top 40 hits, including a number one single in the UK, Just Like a Pill.
