Grammy Award-winning and top artist Pink has become popular after the debut of her first solo album, Can't Take Me Home, in 2000. Even if you're just a casual fan, chances are you know at least one of her hit singles by heart.

In addition to her music career, Pink has made headlines for her outspoken views on marriage and parenting. But even if you are a superfan, you may not know everything about this pop star.

Her real name is Alecia Beth Moore

You don't have to be a devoted fan to know that Pink is just a stage name. Born Alecia Beth Moore, the singer says she got the nickname Pink for many reasons, one of which is related to the movie Reservoir Dogs, which features a character named Mr. Pink. She spoke about the origin of her surname on Good Morning America.

Overcoming a difficult past

Before becoming a global superstar, Pink faced a difficult upbringing. She dropped out of school and started singing in nightclubs. "The problem was that I was labeled as a troublemaker, so I said, "Trouble? I'll show you trouble. If you want trouble, here it is!" she told Faiz about her teenage image.

She began abusing drugs and alcohol. At one point Pink almost died of an overdose. Her friend Stacey Coffey unfortunately did not survive. Pink's path to success is a testament not only to her talent but also to her resilience.

Pink worked at McDonald's

Long before she became famous, Pink worked a regular job, including at McDonald's. She once said that flipping burgers gave her financial independence, "It was important to my family that I earned my own money. I worked at McDonald's, flipping burgers. I had a Janet Jackson microphone. I had power." This experience grounded her and taught her the value of hard work.

Lots of tattoos

Pink is known for her distinctive style with an extensive tattoo collection. She boasts more than 20 tattoos, each with its own unique meaning. The memorials to her late dogs, Sir Corky Moore and Elvis, which demonstrate her deep love for her furry companions, are among them.

An avid motocross enthusiast

While this fact may not come as a surprise, given that her husband Carey Hart is a former motocross star, Pink has immersed herself in the world of motocross. She and her husband have turned this adrenaline-pumping sport into a family affair. Their shared passion for motocross not only strengthened their bond but also added an adventurous dimension to their lives.

These lesser-known aspects of Pink's life and her rise to fame emphasize the depth and complexity of this iconic pop star. From her humble beginnings to her resilience in the face of adversity, Pink's story is as inspiring as her energizing music.
