Pink is a changed woman, but that hasn’t prevented her from staying true to her rocker angst. After all, anyone who can drop a four-letter word three times in the chorus of a hit song that radio is more than happy to play has obviously fought the system and come out on top.
Since being named the new face of Cover Girl and becoming a mother to beautiful daughter Willow, Pink has had to make some adjustments.
“I felt like I was in this video and I collected all the gold coins and talismans you could collect — I had to either move to the next level or quit,” she said to Billboard. “There’s this whole techno takeover going on right now that just does my head in, and I knew if I didn’t want to do that. I’d rather dance around and sing goofy songs.”
That doesn’t mean she suffered writer’s block: “I was calling it an experiment until it wasn’t an experiment. I had 40 songs and it worked out. I’m like a faucet — there’s nothing going on in my head when I’m off. I write in a journal and that’s it. But that first day in the studio just opened up the faucet.”
You can hear the results when Pink’s new album “The Truth About Love” is released on September 18.
