P!nk's Diary:



Diary Übersetzung:

Hey ihr Jungs und Mädels da draußen!
Da bin ich wieder - mit besserer Musik. Ich bin echt froh, dass meine Page wieder online ist und ich euch nun endlich wieder sagen kann, was bei mir so los war. Ich weiß, dass das letzte Mal eine Zeit lang her ist.
I MISS YOU ALL!

So, laßt uns mal schaun. In den letzten 5 Monate habe ich meine ganze Energie, mein ganzes Herz und meine Seele in mein neues Album gesteckt. Das war die Zeit, auf die ich wie ein kleines Mädchen gewartet habe.
Ich hab weder geschlafen, noch gegessen, habe viel geweint und noch mehr gelacht - sorry an meine eltern, dass ich zu ehrlich und direkt war - und ich hab' eine Menge geraucht. Es war so eine verrückte Zeit, aber auch so schön.

Als mir meine Plattenfirma sagte, dass sie über mein neues Album nachdenken, bin ich noch in der selben Woche aufgesprungen und wie wild rumgerannt... dann fand ich die Telefonnummer eines meiner Idole. Ich stolperte im Telefonbuch meines Make-Up-Artists (thx 2 Billy BO) darüber. Also meisterte ich die Situation so, wie ich es für richtig hielt. Ich schnappte mir die Nummer und rief sie* an. Ich glaube fest daran, dass alles aus einem bestimmten Grund passiert.


* eine kleine Fußnote zum Verständniss:
4 Non Blonde's "BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER, MORE!" war eines meiner Lieblingsalben - ich saß ab und zu mit meinen Freunden, die Gitarre spielten, in Daylestown ab und wir sangen "What's up", "Drifting" und "Spaceman". Manchmal wurden wir von den Cops bedrängt - einmal wurden wir sogar verhaftet. Ich hab nie so richtig dieses "die Ruhe stören"-Ding verstanden.
Die Sängerin dieser Band hieß LINDA PERRY und genau diese Frau rief ich an.

Jedenfalls hinterließ ich eine wirklich lange Message auf ihrer Mailbox, wo ich ihr erzählte, dass sie mit mir arbeiten muß und sie rief mich zurück und sagte: "Du bist total verrückt. Komm vorbei!" - Ich sprang in meinen Truck und fuhr zu ihrem Haus und wir schrieben 15 Songs in 1,5 Monaten.

Der erste Tag war lustig, denn sie wußte nicht so richtig, was sie von mir halten sollte. Sie dachte ich sei so eine Hardcore-Rapperin, von dem was sie im Fernsehen sah. Aber ich glaube sie merkte, dass in mir noch viele andere Feuer brannten, die nach draußen wollten. In den letzten Wochen habe ich oft gehört (das ist dieses missverstanden werden), dass einige Leute denken ich sei ein Jungskiller, oder total verwirrt. Was das ethnische betrifft: Ich bin einfach Pink, Mann! Wenn jeder an dieses Kreidekastenprinzip glaubt, wo jeder eine Farbe zu sein hat, dann sollte ich pink bekommen, oder nicht?!

So nun aber. Sorry für das Abschweifen - aber da gibt es noch sooo viel, worüber man reden sollte.

Das war also der Start zum neuen Album. Wir nahmen mehr als 20 Songs in ihrem Haus auf dieser pelzigen Wolldecke auf. Ich wünschte ihr könntet auch alle die Songs hören, die es nicht auf's Album geschafft haben. Sie sind alle so schön.

Ich arbeitete dann mit Scott Storch weiter. Er ist ein Schatz aus meiner Heimatstadt, Philadelphia. Er hat auch schon viele meiner Lieblingslieder aufgenommen: The Roots & Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blidge "FAMILY AFFAIR", Eve & Gwen Stefani etc.

Das Lied, was er für mich aufnahm war "FAMILY PORTRAIT". Dieser Song steht mir am nahsten (wobei mir die anderen auch nah standen). Meine Mutter weinte 4 Tage lang, als sie es hörte. Es geht um die Zeit als dieses große Loch durch den Trotz in meiner Familie war - wegen dieser ganzen Scheidungssache. Ich denke einigen von euch ging's genauso. Ich beschloss darüber zu reden und in Form eines Liedes, war der beste Weg, den ich kannte.

Während einer Moulin Rouge Probe traf ich den Produzenten Damon Elliote, der mich zurück zu diesem "Schicksal-Ding" brachte. Er war mit Mya unterwegs. Wir zogen zusammen los und beschlossen gemeinsam Musik zu machen. (Du wirst ihn vielleicht im Video zu "GET THE PARTY STARTED" wiedererkennen. Er ist dieser knuddelige Bär von Mann, der einen Deppen in einer Tanzszene spielt.) Nunja, mittlerweile ist er wie ein Bruder für mich und er war verantwortlich für meine harten Beats. Außerdem hatte ich ne menge spaß ihn im pool fertig zu machen.


(*Er wird versuchen dir zu erzählen, dass er mich geschlagen hätte, aber glaub ihm nicht! Er lügt! ;))

Ich traf Dallas Austin (aka Dallas Awesome) das letzte Mal 1996, als ich bei LaFace als 16 Jahre alter Punk, der aus den Clubs Phillys kam, unterschrieb. Ich dachte immer, dass er sehr künstlerisch und kreativ sei, obwohk ich glaube, dass er in mir einen kleinen Troublemaker mit grellen Haaren und einem miesen Verhalten sah. Wir stießen wieder in Atlanta aufeinander und ich wollte immer nur arbeiten, aber so richtig hat das nicht geklappt - der Flow fehlte.

Mittlerweile weiß ich, dass es einfach nicht die richtige Zeit für uns war - wir beide haben zu sehr in unseren eigenen Künsten gelebt. Zu dieser Zeit standen die Sterne günstig für uns. Wir hingen dann also in Miami rum und schrieben ein paar Rocksongs. Wir witzelten eine Menge rum und ich sagte immer zu ihm, dass wir musikalisch aus "der Homosexualität kamen".

Mein Augenmerk lag zu dieser Zeit darauf, mich nicht nur auf einen musikalischen Aspekt von mir zu konzentrieren. (Ich bin immer noch funky und ich liebe immer noch HipHop) aber ich wollte alles von mir zeigen - Gutes und Schlechtes.

Ich liebe gute Musik und in meinen Augen beschränkte sich gute Musik nicht nur auf eine Richtung. Das war meine Motivation - das Leben war meine Inspirtation - und alles andere fiel mir einfach zu.

Ich nannte das Album also "MISSUNDAZTOOD" und schrieb es absichtlich falsch um meine Lehrer zu ärgern. Es ist berühigend, dass das ganze 5 Jahre her ist (Schule) und ich mich immer noch drüber ärgere.


* Album Titel Notiz:
Ich denke wir alle fühlen uns missverstanden und unser wichtigstes Ziel im Leben ist es als das geschätzt zu werden, was wir sind. Die meiste Zeit verstehen wir uns ja nichtmal selbst - ein dieser Mysterien im Leben - deswegen der Titel meines Albums: "MISSUNDAZTOOD"

Also, danke nochmal an euch da draußen für eure Unterstützung und fürs zuhören - für eure Offenheit - für die Liebe zur Musik - dafür dass ihr euch traut anders zu sein. Ich traf so viele coole Leute in meinem Leben - ihr da draußen treibt mich an! Ich hoffe ihr mögt mein neues Album. Ich kann's kaum erwarten euch bei meinen Auftritten zu sehen - um mal kurz das Leben zu vergessen - einfach nur um Spaß zu haben und unsere Freiheit zu genießen und Rocken zu können.

Zurückliegende Ereignisse haben mich daran erinnert wie kostbar und kurz unser Leben ist und wie sinnlos die vielen kleinen Dinge sind, über die wir uns aufregen.

Manchmal braucht es eine Tragödie um uns zusammenzubringen. Manchmal braucht es nur MUSIK.

See you out there.
Love & Blessings to everybody.
PEACE
Pink

P!NK against Chris n' Brit

 

 Pink rocker a role model  

SHE has a dog with a rude name that sounds like Mucker, she is covered in tattoos and she is America’s biggest-selling female star this year.
In pop terms she’s no Britney — but teachers and parents are deciding wild child Pink is a great role model for their kids.
A rebel with a cause, her frequent brushes with the law helped the singer quickly become an inspiration to millions of disaffected teenagers around the world.
But amazingly it is the people she rebels against who are now giving her the most praise.
On the back of her multi-million album sales she has become the acceptable face of tearaway youth.
As I catch up with self-proclaimed shock-popper Pink in Barcelona, she says: “I’m a real tomboy and I hate authority. I’m against it and that was difficult being a child.
“I got kicked out of everything for having a bad attitude. Now it inspires people.
“I was expelled from school a couple of times. Teachers didn’t like me — but they do now, they love me.
“They kicked me out but now they want me back to give talks to kids. I love it and I kindly remind them, ‘Weren’t you the one who said I was most likely to be behind bars in ten years?’”
And it’s not just the figures of authority who are sitting up to take note — kids across the planet see her as a huge inspiration.
She says: “I think I’ve helped a lot of girls let go of the need to dress in a ... well I don’t want to say slutty way, but I reckon you can be comfortable and still be sexy. You can be whatever you want to be.
“I don’t know what the hell I’ve done, I just wrote songs but that seems to have had an effect.
“I know my music affects them because that’s what they write in letters, that’s awesome. I’m filling a gap for all the social workers out there who suck and don’t do their job, like the ones I had. I’m making every guidance counsellor’s job a lot easier.
“Nobody could tell me anything when I was younger, I wasn’t hearing anything. If some older girl came up to me and told me, ‘This is what you should do’, I would have told her to kiss my ass
“My advice now is to take three deep breaths, do what the hell you want and try to make it to 21. Then you can decide what you want to do with the rest of your life. 

“I’m proof that things absolutely can happen. Nobody thought that I would get to here but I was very determined to get the hell out, that was what drove me.
“I wanted to get out of my town, I wanted to get out of my life. I was determined to make it, to do something with my life. That was from the age of like seven or eight, I just wanted out.”
Her life is littered with broken relationships, including her parents’ divorce, and general anger and unhappiness.
That’s why I thought she’d be difficult and obstructive but she is fun and full of life — dare I say Pinky is Perky.
She is also a welcome antidote to the plague of faceless conveyor belt stars who have nothing interesting to say.
Not a single question is dodged as she explains the tough upbringing in Philadelphia which inspired her collection of dark and moody pop anthems on the album Missundaztood, which has clocked up SEVEN MILLION sales.
An unlikely pop star, Alicia Moore is her real name. She is the 23-year-old daughter of a Vietnam veteran and a nurse.
Her new single, Family Portrait, reflects on her troubled upbringing. She says: “There’s a lot of anger in my songs. Everything inspires my anger, there’s a lot of reasons why I’m angry. I’m sure my childhood was part of it. That’s when I went downhill.
“I was the perfect kid, I had fun when I was little, I climbed trees, total tomboy. But when I hit the double digits it turned, I just went crazy.
“When I was a juvenile I was behind bars a couple of times but since I turned adult I’ve never been convicted of anything.
“It was for all kinds of stuff, just juvenile crap like shoplifting. I used to run away when my mum would go out of town. But she’d call the cops then leave. They would catch me and keep me until she got back.”

But Pink stresses that her fanbase isn’t just made up of angry teenage girls.
She says: “There was this 65-year-old guy with white hair in the front row the other day going, ‘Yeah!’, with his arm up the whole time.
“That was a trip. It takes all different people.
“I think there weren’t a lot of people out there writing morbid songs. So I filled the morbid gap.”
I tell Pink that I believe her success has inspired “rivals” Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera to change their image.
Since Pink burst on to the scene with tracks that include Just Like A Pill and Let’s Get The Party Started, they have certainly grunged up their looks.
She agrees, saying: “I like pop music — I once went to a New Kids On The Block concert.
“I think Britney in particular is a hard-working lady, honestly.
“I don’t listen to her kind of music, it’s not my thing, but I would never disrespect her because she works damn freaking hard and she’s young and I’m sure she’s stressed.
“Her image, and Christina Aguilera’s, have changed so much over the last few years. I think they are copying me. Whatever works you just follow it, I guess. Some people have their own identity and others don’t.”
Pink lives alone in Los Angeles with her rudely named dog.
But she has met a man she thinks could be Mr Right.
Motorbiker Carey Hart, 26, chatted her up in Las Vegas (brave man) last December and they have been together ever since.

She tells me: “It will be a year in four days — not that I’m counting.
“We see a lot of each other. We make it happen, I make him fly out to me, meet me in weird places like Tokyo.
“He’s a moto-cross rider and he crashed and broke 14 bones five minutes after I met him. Next time I saw him he was just out of hospital.”
I ask her if she always has that effect on men and she giggles. “And then I met him two months later and I was like, ‘Hey you’re that cute boy I met who was on crutches’.
“I asked, ‘Are you riding today?’ He said, ‘No, I’m still hurting’. I replied, ‘Oh yeah, sorry’.
He’s the one right now. This is the longest normal relationship I’ve ever had. The others have been s***.
“I’ve had man trouble but I don’t hate men. My Dad’s my favourite person, he’s a real man.
“He had a heart attack a couple of weeks ago and I just had to cancel everything and go home — it was too much. He’s OK, he had no permanent damage and even drove himself to the hospital.
“As he was having his heart attack, he drives himself to the hospital, that’s that tough airforce spirit. That’s that dumb, stubborn-ass dad I have. He was in the airforce in Vietnam. He told me he was once in a tent and he woke up and there was a guy at his feet with a machete.
“If he hadn’t been a light sleeper his whole camp would have been killed. But he shot the guy and saved everybody.
“My Mum and Dad split up when I was eight or nine.”
With all those millions of albums shifted the money must have started to roll in.
I ask Pink whether she is now a multi-millionaire and she laughs: “F*** no. Excuse me. No, I got jacked by some people on my way to the top and now I’m not even at the top. I’m in the middle, so when I get to the top I’m sure I’ll be a multi-millionaire but that’s not what I really care about.
“I’m not really materialistic — as long as I can pay my way, buy Perrier instead of Evian, I’m cool.
“I’ve got one car — a Cadillac truck — and a scooter and a dirt bike but I spend most of my money on my family. I love to give them things.
“I get them all kinds of stuff except houses. I gotta get myself a proper house first. I gave my brother a motorcycle and my Dad, I gave him a Rolex.
“He’s so happy because his whole life he wanted a Rolex and he had to give his up for child support so I kind of gave it back to him.
“But I work hard — for five or six days I’ve been up until 9o’clock in the morning and I have to get up again at 11.30.
“I’m an insomniac anyway so I’m used to it but I’ve never been this busy. Sometimes I don’t sleep, I just pace up and down and write.

“I went to bed last night though. I was just so tired I fell asleep. I’m OK now.”
Home is shared with the aformentioned dog. So what’s the story behind the name?

She explains: “I like being at home with my dog. He’s so cute, he’s perfect. I took him home and I was like, ‘What’s your name?’
“He just looked up at me and started biting at my face and I just said, ‘F***er!’”
Pink’s single Family Portrait is out on December 9.

Dominic Mohan of The Sun spoke with Pink and told the singer he believed her success has inspired Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera to copy her style. "I like pop music — I once went to a New Kids On The Block concert. I think Britney in particular is a hard-working lady, honestly," Pink responded. "I don’t listen to her kind of music, it's not my thing, but I would never disrespect her because she works damn freaking hard and she’s young and I'm sure she’s stressed. Her image, and Christina Aguilera’s, have changed so much over the last few years. I think they are copying me. Whatever works you just follow it, I guess. Some people have their own identity and others don’t." Read more. s.o.

 

P!nk ist schuld

 

AMID last week's cultural atrocity known as the MTV Video Awards, an ugly trend emerged: More than one young female music star boasted - live, on-stage - of being drunk.
Accepting the award for Best Female Video, Pink - the 23-year-old singer - slurred her speech and told all her little girl fans, "I'm too drunk for this."
Wow!
Cutting edge. You go girl. Rock out.
Later, "Viewers Choice" winner Michelle Branch - in an obvious homage to Pink - proclaimed her intoxication, too.
No one over the age of 21 listens to either of these artists. So exactly who are their tough-girl, party-animal comments supposed to impress?
Young girls. And that's a problem.
No doubt, many of Pink's fans wanted to emulate their idol that night. And if not that night, you can bet they'll feel very in-the- 'Pink' some day soon.
Four 18-year-olds from Westchester came to town for the awards. After visiting several area bars with boys they met at the awards - who'd promised they'd introduce them to Eminem - the girls were all raped.
"Drunk pop stars on MTV make drinking appear to youngsters humorous and glamorous," says Susan Foster of The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (known as "CASA"
at Columbia University.
"But it's irresponsible and dangerous."
Girls today seem to be trying to outdo guys. Or at least do everything guys do.
In their quest for equal jobs and equal pay, girls and women seem to be vying for equal party skills. Studies back that up. Yet, girls have a greater chance of getting burned by alcohol.
Does Pink know that girls who begin drinking in their early teens have a greater chance at becoming alcoholics than boys? Or that alcohol is actually more physically damaging to girls' bodies than boys'? Or that consumption of alcohol increases the chances of risky sexual behavior and rape?
According to CASA, there is no longer a gender gap when it comes to teen drinking. Ninth-grade girls and boys have an even shot at drinking - 40.2 percent and 41 percent, respectively. And at binge-drinking (four or more drinks in quick succession) - 21.7 percent and 20.2 percent.
Yet, notes Foster, alcohol "is linked to the top three reasons of death in teens: accidents, suicide and homicide. Drinking hikes up the likelihood of risky sexual behavior (in terms of numbers of partners and frequency of sex), and it can damage young brains, causing mental and social development problems."
Staggering as it may seem, the under-21 set - children - constitute a whole quarter - that's 25 percent - of alcohol consumption in this country.
Since 1975, the age at which children begin drinking has been steadily dropping: The number of kids who begin drinking in eighth grade or earlier has jumped by almost a third, according to CASA.
So it's not like we need phony posers like Pink to encourage young people to drink. She should be ashamed of herself for building her rocker-chick credentials on the backs - or livers - of impressionable young fans.
What ever happened to being a lady? Whatever happened to pitying the drunk girl who makes a fool of herself and passes out?
Meanwhile, by racing to one-up the boys in all ways, girls are starting to lose their last vestiges of femininity. And putting their lives in jeopardy in the process.
