Alecia Beth Moore, known under her stage name 'Pink', is an American singer and songwriter. Born in Pennsylvania to a Vietnam veteran Catholic father and a Jewish mother, Pink had a troubled childhood marred by a strained relationship with her mother. She started writing songs and performing in clubs from a young age, even becoming member of a r'n'b group at 16. Although they received a record deal and recorded a single, the group soon broke up. It was during these years that she received her nickname Pink, due to a character in Tarantino flick Reservoir Dogs. Pink secured a solo deal in 2000 and released her first album, Can't Take Me Home, which was certified double platinum and was hugely r'n'b influenced. Her first worldwide success came with Lady Marmalade, a collaboration between herself, Christina Aguilera, Mya, Lil Kim and Missy Elliott, as part of the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. The single received a Grammy Award and topped the charts in numerous countries. After an image-rethink, she went on to release further albums with a more punk-rock influence, including M!ssundaztood, Try This, I'm Not Dead and Fun House. She has been married to motocross star Carey Hart since 2006, though they briefly broke up in 2008. The couple rekindled their romance in February 2010 and Pink gave birth to the couple's first child, Willow Sage, in June 2011. Pink was named the #1 pop musician of the decade by Billboard in 2009 and in 2013 they honoured her musical career with the Billboard Woman of the Year Award.
