On This Day in Pink History… 11th August 2008 So What was released

So What is a song recorded by Pink for her fifth studio album, Funhouse in 2008. The song was written by Pink, Max Martin and Shellback while production was handled by Martin. So What was released as the albums debut single through LaFace and Jive Records. The lyrics are based on Pink’s separation from Carey Hart, which occurred six months prior to the released.

So What received generally positive reviews from contemporary music critics; many praised it for its aggressive and empowering nature while others deemed it childish and bratty. The song was also successful commercially, topping the charts in several countries across Europe and Oceania and peaking within the top five worldwide. In the United States, the song reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming her first number one hit on the chart as a solo artist and her second overall. So What also became her highest selling single in the United States, with sales of over four million downloads. The two-track single release also included the b-side Could’ve Had Everything.

Pink performed “So What” on MTV Europe Music Awards 2008 on November 6, 2008. The song was nominated for several awards, eventually winning the MTV Europe Music Award for the Most Addictive Track. So What is included in most setlists, including Funhouse Tour, Summer Carnival Tour and the Truth About Love Tour.

On This Day in Pink History… 6th August 2012, Pink was announced as the new face of Covergirl

On This Day in Pink History… 6th August 2012, Pink was announced as the new face of Covergirl

Covergirl makeup has found its latest spokeswoman in an unlikely pop star — P!nk.

The fearless musician, who has defied traditional beauty standards in the past, is set to bring a different look to the makeup company, which has typically stuck to All-American spokeswomen for their brand. For example, P!nk’s fellow Covergirls include Taylor Swift, Ellen DeGeneres and Drew Barrymore, who are all noticably less risque than the “Stupid Girls” singer. But, that’s exactly what P!nk has joined Covergirl to do. Her campaign is set to celebrate “beauty with an edge.”

“P!nk is a powerful and provocative role model, who has always been an advocate of individualism and making no apologies for who you are. That combination of irreverence and integrity is exactly what the Covergirl brand loves about her and identifies with,” Esi Eggleston Bracey, VP and General Manager of Covergirl, said in a statement.

P!nk’s first print ad for a new Covergirl mascara has already been shot. The campaign is set to debut in fall of this year.

On This Day in Pink History… 3rd August 2009, Funhouse single was released

On This Day in Pink History… 3rd August 2009, Funhouse single was released

Funhouse is the fifth single from Pink’s fifth studio album of the same name. The track was written by P!nk, Jimmy Harry and Tony Kanal who also produced the song. It holds the title of the album and, just like most of the album’s tracks, the song speaks about P!nk’s split with motocrossrider Carey Hart.

Funhouse received acclaim from critics, being regarded as one of the musical and lyrical highlights of the album. There’s More Where That Came From’ gave the song an A- stating, “‘Funhouse’ has the energy of ‘So What’ but surpasses it half-way through, when the song breaks into true rocker mode. Something we haven’t seen from Pink since ‘Trouble’ back in 2003!” Billboard also gave the song a very positive review, saying “Pink again displays her versatility on this complex number, which calls for blues, funk and rock vocal stylings that few other pop stars could pull off. The singer delivers with full force, colliding with lively guitar licks and hints of synth” and giving it an 81% approval.

Funhouse became Pink’s 16th Top 10 single in Australia, climbing to a chart peak of number six. The song also became Pink’s 5th consecutive #1 single on the Australian Airplay Chart, with all 4 previous singles from Funhouse peaking at #1 too. In New Zealand, the song debuted at number 18, becoming Pink’s fifth consecutive top twenty hit from the Funhouse album. It has since peaked at number 15. It also made its chart debut on the Turkey Top 20 Chart at number twenty-five. Funhouse first appeared on the UK Singles Chart in July, 2009 at number 155. It climbed 30 spots to 125 a week later. It currently peaks at twenty-nine. Also in the UK, the song has been added to the B List of the Radio 1 Playlist. It is expected to climb in the following weeks due to the physical release of the single. In August 2009, Funhouse debuted at the Dutch Top 40 at number 31, making this her 19th entry on the chart. Funhouse debuted on the Canadian Hot 100 at #80 and has risen to a peak of #21. The song was released in later August, 2009 in the U.S., and in October, the song debuted at number 23 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. The following week, the song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #97 and peaked at #44.

The music video was directed by Dave Meyers and premiered in June, 2009 in the United Kingdom on 4music. Tony Kanal of No Doubt, also the co-writer and the producer of the song, appears in a cameo, playing a piano. The video takes place in a barren lot that is later shown to be what’s left of a house that is still burning. There are ‘evil clowns’ throughout the area who are picking though the rubble and playing the instruments as the band. The video begins as it pans low to the ground showing an “Elvis” grave briefly. Pink emerges from an old empty pool and begins to sing the first verse. She proceeds to kick over a toilet and picks up a framed photo. She throws it behind her. She passes a toaster and now it shows that she is in a burning fun house. She dances past a few ‘evil clowns’. It shows more of the burning remains of the building. She picks up a stick and throws it down. Then an ‘evil clown’ turns around and the camera has a close up of its face. She counts down from 9. (She quickly shows her middle finger on ‘5’ but on most versions of the video that is blurred out.) She moves to a table and takes a sip of some red liquid but becomes disgusted and throws it down. She jumps onto a mattress attached to a chain which two ‘evil clowns’ are pulling. She gets off the mattress and climbs onto the burning fun house. It shows four ‘evil clowns’ (Two are miming with each other, one is playing the guitar and the last is just standing on its own.) She goes over to the guitar playing clown and dances with it. She proceeds to count down from 9 again. She climbs through a doggie door to find Tony Kanal playing the piano. Pink moves to a motorcycle and puts on sunglasses and a leather jacket. In the background a voice is counting down from 9. At one she rides away on the motorcycle as the house explodes. It then shows her riding her motorcycle on a road as the song ends.

On This Day in Pink History… 26th July 2012, Blow Me (One Last Kiss) music video was released

On This Day in Pink History… 26th July 2012, Blow Me (One Last Kiss) music video was released

In Summer 2012, Pink was back with her new single, Blow Me (One Last Kiss). The music video was released on 26th July 2012 on MTV and VEVO. The video was directed by Dave Meyers who has directed many of Pink’s music videos. The video, with opening titles in French, was shot in black and white, but a colour version was leaked online in August.

The video begins with Pink having a picnic with her love interest (Sebastian de la Forza). The two lean in for a kiss, which is interrupted by him taking a phone call. Pink splashes him with red wine, and walks away through the trees. She meets another man on his motorbike (Alexander Ercheverria) and goes home with him. He draws a portrait of her. Pink watches through the window as many female guests arrive for a party the man has organised. During the party, she dances with one of the women until she is interrupted by the man who brought her home. Pink wears a black suit with her hair pushed back and dances with the woman (Mosh). The man gets down on one knee and proposes. Pink accepts by giving him her hand but is disappointed to find out the proposal was meant for her dance partner. During their wedding ceremony, Pink is dressed completely in black, as if she is attending a funeral. A flying bike appears above the guests (Andreas-Holm Hansen), which is carrying a heart-shaped balloon. The balloon pops, and red liquid covers the guests as Pink sings and dances cheerfully. She joins the driver of the flying bike, and they fly away together at the end of this video clip across the countryside, into the sunset, under a bridge, over trees and up close to a big hill on the high flying bicycle with eagle wings.

On This Day in Pink History… 13th July 2005, Pink proposed to Carey Hart

Pink met Carey Hart at the 2001 X Games in Philadelphia. She said she would never date a motocross racer… however four years later on 13th July 2005, Pink asked Carey to marry her during a Mammoth Lakes motocross race. She was assisting the race and wrote “Will you marry me? I’m serious!” on a pit board. He initially didn’t notice and continued on for another lap. When he did notice, he veered off the track and he said YES! But then Pink made him finish the race because she didn’t want to marry a loser!

They married in Costa Rica in early 2006, however, in 2008 Pink confirmed that she and Carey had separated. In April 2009, Pink stated that the couple had gone to marriage counseling and were back together – they were never divorced. In November 2010, the couple announced they were expecting their first child and on 2nd June 2011, Willow Sage Hart was born.

Carey has appeared in several of Pink’s music videos (Just Like a Pill, So What, Just Give Me a Reason and True Love), and has also travelled with her on tours. They have matching ‘Tru Luv’ tattoos, and also Carey has a several tattoos of Pink.
