Pink Biography

Alecia Beth Moore was born on September 8, 1979, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, to parents Judy and James, and was raised alongside her older brother Jason.

When Alecia was still a child, her parents divorced and decided to alternate custody of Alecia and her brother. When she spent time with her father, she would watch as he played songs on his guitar. It was then that Alecia knew she wanted to become a musician of sorts.

Alecia Moore in Basic Instinct

By age 13, Alecia was already performing songs in Philadelphia dance clubs, as backup for a local rap band called Schools of Thought. Spotted by a record exec, Alecia was recruited by MCA Records to be in a band called Basic Instinct.

After that didn’t work out, it wasn’t long before Alecia would be spotted once again. In 1994, Alecia piqued the interest of LA Reid of LA Face records and was recruited to be part of the R&B band, Choice. Alecia helped write up many of the songs that were to become part of the album for the group.

Alecia Moore becomes Pink

Meanwhile, Reid noticed Alecia’s efforts and instead signed her to a solo deal. Alecia received her GED from high school by then and, although she spent one year attending Moore College of Art & Design, by April 2000, Alecia Moore opted to drop out of school, took the moniker Pink, and released Can’t Take Me Home.

The album had a strong R&B flare and went double platinum, and garnered Pink a Billboard Award for Best New Female Artist. Then, in 2001, Pink teamed up with Lil’ Kim, Mya, Missy Elliott, and Christina Aguilera for the remake of Patti Labelle’s 1975 classic hit, “Lady Maramalade.” Pink and the other ladies won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.

Pink is Missundaztood

Pink, however, felt like she was being boxed into a “pop singer” life and wanted to unleash her true self to the public. Her next album, Missundaztood, released in November 2001, showed a different side of Pink, but still captured audiences with hits like “Don’t Let Me Get Me,” “Like A Pill,” “Get The Party Started,” and “Family Portrait.”

The beginning of 2003 saw Pink making a small appearance as a dirt bike race promoter in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, and releasing a single for the soundtrack entitled “Feel Good Time.”

That same year in November, Pink released her third album, Try This. Although the songs “Trouble” and “God is a DJ” didn’t do as well as her previous efforts in the U.S., Pink won her second Grammy Award for the single “Trouble.” As a result, Pink toured extensively throughout Europe, but didn’t do so in the United States.

Pink marries Carey Hart

On a personal note, although Pink is a self-confessed bisexual, she married her longtime boyfriend and professional motocross driver Carey Hart in January 2006 (whom she met at the 2001 X Games in Las Vegas), and returned from her professional hiatus with a fresh new album entitled I’m Not Dead, which featured the hit single “Stupid Girls.”

The music video for the single caused controversy, as Pink pokes fun at today’s female celebrities including the Olsen twins, Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Simpson.

Pink stars in Catacombs

Although Pink's marriage to Carey Hart officially ended in February 2008, Pink had already begun taking on the big screen in a prominent way, and starred in the 2007 big screen film Catacombs, costarring Shannyn Sossamon.
