Pink (real name Alisha Moore) was born on September 8, 1979 in Philadelphia, USA, to a family of a Vietnam War veteran who separated from the mother of the future star when the girl was not even seven years old.
She began her musical career as a pop and R&B singer. But, working on her second album, Pink opted for a slightly different role. The album "Missundaztood" covers not only pop and R&B, but also hip-hop, disco, and blues-rock. The singer managed to involve to the work on the album her former idol and the former lead singer of "Non Blondes" Linda Perry, together they wrote six songs and the author of two songs was Perry herself. The album was released on November 20, 2001.
Commercially "Missundaztood" was much more successful than "Can't Take Me Home". The single "Get the Party Started", written and produced by Perry, rose to number five on the charts in the United States, and topped the charts in many other countries.
Other singles from the album, including "Don't Let Me Get Me," "Just Like a Pill" and "Family Portrait," also ranked in the top 20. The single "Just Like a Pill" was a success in the U.K., where the song topped the country charts for several weeks. "Missundaztood" went platinum five times in the U.S., and total sales worldwide were 16 million copies. In the U.K., it was the second best-selling album in 2002.
In summer 2003, Pink released the single "Feel Good Time" which became the soundtrack to the movie Charlie's Angels: Full Frontal. The singer also played a cameo in the film. The single was produced by electronic music specialist William Orbit. The song was based on the '60s song "Fresh Garbage" by Spirit. "Feel Good Time" reached the 60th place in the top 100 singles chart of "Billboard" magazine.
Pink's third album, Try This, was released on November 11, 2003. Eight of the thirteen tracks were co-written with Tim Armstrong of the punk band Rancid. Linda Perry also took part in the creation of the album as a lyricist and composer. The album went straight to the Top 10 in Canada, the UK, Australia, and the US. In the latter it received platinum status.
All three singles from the album, "Trouble," "God Is A DJ," and "Last to Know," did not have much success in the U.S. but hit the Top 10 in other countries, especially in the UK and Australia. The song "Trouble" earned Pink her second Grammy Award in 2003 for Best Female Rock Vocal.

"This decision was made by best friends out of a pure heart and respect for each other," Schweitzer said. The music video for her 2008 hit "So What," in which Hart appeared, shows her breakup and pending divorce.
