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

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.

On This Day in Pink History… 3rd July 2012, Blow Me (One Last Kiss) was released

On This Day in Pink History… 3rd July 2012, Blow Me (One Last Kiss) was released

In summer 2012, Pink was back with her new single, Blow Me (One Last Kiss), from her up-coming album, The Truth About Love. Written by Pink, Greg Kurstin, Dann Gallucci, Eric Judy and Isaac Brock, and produced by Kurstin, the song was critically acclaimed and named as “classic Pink”.

Speaking to Billboard Magazine in August 2012, Greg Kurstin revealed that he and the singer had trouble coming up with a name for the track.The producer had been working with Pink on an intense nine-day songwriting session that yielded six songs. One particular track, an empowering breakup anthem in the vein of “So What,” seemed like it might be written and recorded within a day-it just needed a title. “She kept coming back to ‘Let’s throw in the towel,’ and it was one of those things where we had to say, ‘Is that line really the song?'” Kurstin recalled. “So then I came back with ‘Blow me … one last kiss’ and we got really excited. Most of the time with Pink she’s so strong writing lyrics I don’t really interfere. I let her do her thing. That could’ve been the only time I did that.”

Blow Me (One Last Kiss) first appeared on the Australian Singles Chart in mid July 2012, debuting at number 1. The song peaked at number 8 on the New Zealand Top 40 chart. It also debuted at number 13 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart. In Ireland, the song debuted at number 23 on the Irish Singles Chart. In the United Kingdom, the song debuted at number 3 with sales over 70,000 in September 2012 behind Ne-Yo’s Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself) and The Script’s Hall of Fame. Despite of not reaching No.1 in the Singles Chart it did reach No.1 In the UK iTunes Chart, it debuted at number one in Scotland.

In the United States, the song debuted at number 58 on the BillboardHot 100 and peaked at number 5. As of August 2013, Pink is placed joint-third with Lady Gaga (12) behind Rihanna (24) and Beyoncé (14) for most top ten hits for a female artist since 2000. The song also topped the German Airplay Chart, becoming Pink’s tenth consecutive single to do so and increasing her (previously broken) record for the most consecutive number 1 singles in Germany. The song also appeared on the South African Airplay Chart, reaching a peak position of number 2. On Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, it gave Pink her fourth number-one single on this chart. It has sold 2,164,000 copies in the US as of July 2013.

There are two versions of the music video for Blow Me (One Last Kiss). The original version is black & white with splashes of colour. The second version is the same, except that it is in colour. The video features opening titles in French and 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.

MTV’s James Montgomery assured Pink’s fans that she hasn’t changed, while crediting the video for its angry and funny nature, saying “While your heroine might be saying she’s a changed woman, the ‘Blow Me’ video proves that she’s not. It’s just as angry as her previous clips, and nearly as funny too.”

The single also came with a b-side, The King is Dead but the Queen is Alive.
