When Alecia Beth Moore, better known as Pink, burst on to the music scene, she refused to be just another manufactured pop star. With her raspy voice and short pink hair that helped create her edgy signature look, Pink was certainly a different kind of "pop star."
Pink found some success with her first single "There You Go," from her debut album Can't Take Me Home in 2000, but it wasn't until her next album that she found true commercial success. Pink's second album, Mizundastood, was certified either gold or platinum in more than 20 countries and boasted four hit singles. After her punkier third album, Try This, flopped, Pink followed with two more studio albums that enjoyed greater popularity.
Pink didn't just have an unorthodox approach to being a pop star. The groundbreaker also went against the grain when it came to her personal life. In 2005, she popped the question to motorcross racer boyfriend Carey Hart. Although Pink and Carey were married in 2006, they split shortly after. Fans were shocked when the newly separated couple appeared in Pink's video together for her song "So What," which was about breaking up and moving on. It suggested that at least the two had an amicable breakup. It proved to be much more than amicable when Pink and Carey confirmed in 2010 that they had reconciled. Within months of that Pink was pregnant with the couple's first child. Their daughter, Willow Sage Hart, was born on June 2, 2011.
In August 2012 Pink was named the new face of CoverGirl.
