Whether you just love her music, just love her boobs or just hate everything about her -“ there’s no argument that the girl once known as Alicia Moore has style.
From her early days as an angsty parent-baiting alt-rock star for the masses to her current status of stadium goddess for the masses, Pink has sworn, screamed and laughed at her peers all the way to the bank.
She’s also continually flirted with girl-on-girl sex-“ not in a stagy Madonna Sex photo kind of way. Not in a Britney Xteena three-way kind of way. And certainly not in a look-at-me-pashing-this-other-girl Tatu kind of way.
To the dyke celebrity watcher, Pink flirts with GOG like that girl at university kissing that other girl in the corner of the bar. Yes, they’re both straight. Yes, they both know it. And no, they don’t care. Call her gay, straight or bisexual, Pink doesn’t seem to give a shit. In a what were you thinking interview following Pink’s very public pash with Terminator 3‘s Kristanna Loken in The Sydney Morning Herald, Pink said it was more a battle of Monte Carlo wills than a sign of secret sexuality.
It was just the sort of thing where, y’know, she tried to dominate me. We were dancin’ and she kissed me. I wasn’t gonna back down. Fuck that. You may be taller, but I’m stronger.
And she’s a smart-arse too. Reports of her current concert series have her singing Christina Aguilera’s Beautiful to a blow-up version of the real thing. Which she straddles, in a sexually suggestive way.
She’s political. Msnbc.com reported this week that in a survey of rock star’s opinions of gay marriage in US magazine The Advocate, she said: If you happen to be reasonably minded and have fallen in love and wanna marry your soul mate and make a life of it, and you just so happen to be the same sex, then NO! How dare you! You demon creatures! We’d rather you just buy gasoline and support our war and continue to consume and fear in our country so we can make money off you. But do us a favour -“ don’t hold hands in public. Love, Pink.
We love her because she couldn’t act in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, but she still stole the show. We love her because she dresses like a tomboy with her tits out. And we love her because she seems like she’d be a bitch, but a bitch with a really nice girl hiding just under the surface.
And, amazingly, we even love her because she doesn’t answer journalists’ questions, even though they are sent to her by publicists with plenty of time for consideration. Is Pink rock’n’roll? You bet yo’ ass.
