P!nk (real name Alecia Beth Moore, born September 8, 1979) is a female pop SingerSongwriter. She first gained popularity in 2000 as an R&B singer before taking creative control of her career and [[NewSoundAlbum switching]] to a more retro pop/rock sound, though her R&B origins can still be heard from time to time.

Throughout her career, now over a decade long, P!nk has racked up three Grammy Awards, two Brit Awards, and 12 Top 20 hits, including two (solo) number ones: "So What" and "Raise Your Glass". With album sales over 30 million and single sales over 70 million, she has experienced both critical and commercial success. In 2009, Billboard named her the number one pop artist of the decade.

Her latest, ''Beautiful Trauma,'' was released October 13th, 2017, preceded by #1 single "What About Us?"

!!! "The Truth About Tropes":

* AccentOnTheWrongSyllable: "Don't Let Me Get Me" puts the emphasis on the NYE in Music/BritneySpears' name to fit the rhyming scheme.
* ActionGirl: "Trouble", especially in the music video.
* ArtifactAlias: An interesting case. She has said that she got her stage name from Mr. Pink of ''Film/ReservoirDogs,'' but she did [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair have pink hair]] at the start of her career, possibly to explain where the name "Pink" came from. However, right after her first album, she starting going more toward blond with pink highlights, and is now fully blond, and has probably left a few newer fans wondering where the hell the name Pink came from.
* BadassBoast: "Cuz I Can", "18 Wheeler", both songs take a tone of you don't want to mess with me, something she says practically word for word in "U + Ur Hand."
* BathSuicide: Attempted in the "Perfect" music video.
* BikerBabe: Reportedly in real life, as well as in many publicity shots and the video for "Funhouse".
* BlowingARaspberry: Does this at the end of her song "So What".
* {{Bowdlerise}}: Her song "F***in' Perfect." Lyrics changed to "Less Than Perfect" on the radio.
* BreakupSong:
** "So What" and a great part of the''Funhouse'' album.
** Not to mention the lead single, "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" from her sixth album, ''The Truth About Love''. It's much happier and not as bitter as her previous album (which was all about heartbreak) and the title of the song lead you to believe. Though she does say the guy is "full of shit."
* ButNotTooWhite: When Pink first debuted, her deep tan, R&B style, and pairings with black romantic leads in her music videos made many viewers think she was a light-skinned black girl, or at least biracial. But her two white parents would say otherwise.
* TheCameo: She appears in ''Film/CharliesAngelsFullThrottle'' as a motorcross race camp owner. She also provided the theme song, "Feel Good Time."
* CannotSpitItOut: "Hiccup" on her debut discusses this.
* CheckPlease: Spoken aloud in "Slut Like You" after the guy she's attempting to pick up (figuratively) blows it.
* CoolShades: She wears a pair on the ''Can't Take Me Home'' album cover.
* DarkerAndEdgier: The "F*cking Perfect" music video.
* ADateWithRosiePalms:
** "U and Ur Hand" is an unusual variant about a women telling guys who pester her at clubs to go home and jerk off.
** Also "Fingers (W/30 Seconds of Silence)" for a female version.
** Implied in "Centerfold".
** She also performs "I Touch Myself" live at a concert. While stretched out on a sofa. [[MsFanservice Wearing only underwear...]]
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: The entire video of "Please Don't Leave Me" sees Pink's character, who is clearly insane, going to great, near-fatal lengths to stop her boyfriend from leaving her. The Boyfriend is depicted as sympathetic and the abuser gets her comeuppance, but had the roles been reversed, the video would never have seen the light of day.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: ''Can't Take Me Home'''s R&B-focused sound stands out amongst the majority of her music which has pop rock, pop funk, pop country, and other pop elements.
* EthicalSlut: "Slut Like You" seems to be told from the perspective of one, who nonetheless gets a kick out of revealing to the guy she picks up that she's not as innocent as he thought.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: "Glitter In The Air" is this trope.
* ExcitedShowTitle: Humorously inverted with her stage game.
* FanOfUnderdog[=/=]FreakyIsCool[=/=]NerdsAreSexy: "Raise Your Glass"
* {{Fanservice}}: A few of her videos.
* FourMoreMeasures: In "Raise Your Glass", she screws up the timing at the climax: "''So raise your''... aw, fuck."
* GenreRoulette: In her prime, this was a specialty of hers. She's done pure pop, PopPunk, contemporary {{Rock}}, {{Techno}}, {{Soul}}, GlamRock and a more straight-laced SingerSongwriter style, even flirting with CountryMusic at times. Her original style leaned towards RAndB, as heard on ''Can't Take Me Home.''
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" manages to sneak an obvious oral sex joke onto pop radio through the use of parenthesis. It doesn't help that most people refer to the song by its full title, while Pink prefers just calling it "Blow Me".
* GriefSong: "Who Knew".
* ImportantHaircut: The actress in the "F*cking Perfect" video undergoes one.
* IntercourseWithYou: A few of her songs, notably "Oh My God".
* TheLadette: "I drink more than you/and I party harder than you/and my car's faster than yours,' the opening lyrics from "Cuz I Can"... and that's just the beginning of it.
* LuckyCharmsTitle: Her "i" is an exclamation point.
* LyricalColdOpen: In "F***n' Perfect".
* MonsterClown: The lyrics and video for "Funhouse".
* NewSoundAlbum: Her first album had a very R&B sound to it. However, for her second album onwards, she switched to a more pop/rock style.
* OdeToSobriety[=/=]OdeToIntoxication: Type 1 deconstruction in "Sober".
* OdeToYouth: "Raise Your Glass"
* ParentalIssues:
** "Family Portrait".
** Mentioned in "F***n' Perfect" too.
* {{Parody}}: The video for "Stupid Girls" includes parodies of Nicole Richie and Music/JessicaSimpson's HoodOrnamentHottie video for "These Boots are Made for Walking", Lindsay Lohan's frequent fender-benders, Mary Kate Olsen's bohemian fashion, and one directed at Paris Hilton's mention of her sex tape and Carl's Jr. commercial, as well as those miniature dogs that some girls use more as accessories than pets.
* PepTalkSong: "Try".
* PrecisionFStrike: "Timebomb," a bonus track from "The Truth about Love." To a lesser extent, the "kissing my ass" line in "Get The Party Started."
* ProtestSong: "Dear Mr. President" aimed at then-President Bush.
* RageAgainstTheReflection: In the video for "Don't Let Me Get Me".
* RealWomenDontWearDresses: Invoked. Although the ''song'' "Stupid Girls" has a point about women are over-sexualized in the media, the music video for that song makes it look like anything feminine is weak and pathetic.
* ReallyGetsAround: "Slut Like You".
* RockStarSong: "So What"
-->"So what\\
I'm still a rock star"
* ScrewYourself: The Music Video for "Sober".
* SelfEmpowermentAnthem: "Raise Your Glass" and "F***n' Perfect"
* SexIsViolence: The video for "Try", inspired by the notorious "apache" dance routines from early-twentieth-century French cabaret, which were supposedly originally intended to depict a fight between a pimp and a hooker.
* ShamingTheMob: During an acoustic set, Pink noticed two guys out of the corner of her eye fighting in the audience. Then she noticed that their fight was frightening a little girl in front of them, told her guitarist to stop and bitched the two guys from the stage without a second though. She then looked at the little girl and offered her a toy she had with her on stage to cheer her up.
* SheCleansUpNicely: "Lady Marmalade" was the first time she got sexy for a music video as opposed to her usual tomboyish look (''Rolling Stone'' joked that Music/LilKim and Music/ChristinaAguilera would wear those outfits to the supermarket, but Pink and Mya needed some convincing). Needless to say, [[MissFanservice it payed off BIG TIME]]!
* TheShowMustGoOn: She was suffering from a sore throat in the days before she was scheduled to sing the national anthem at Super Bowl LII in February 2018, with some worrying that she'd have to bow out. Thankfully, she only needed a cough drop and performed nonetheless.
* SillyLoveSongs: "Love Song" would be one of her best examples of this trope but "I'm Not Dead" plays with this trope, the song is apparently about her relationship with her main collaborator.
* SlapSlapKiss: "You Make Me Sick," both the song and the video. That poor MallSanta...
* SpiritualSuccessor: "U + Ur Hand" is Music/DonnaSummer's "She Works Hard for the Money" after [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]], since, unlike the struggling waitress character in that song, P!nk pretty much conveys that she WILL kick your ass if you mess with her.
* StudioChatter:
** ''Missundazstood''; a good half of the song is pure chatter and mistakes. "This ain't no damn Exlax commercial! This my first single MAN!"
** It's a good bet that "Bad Bad Day" was made when P!nk was just screwing around in the studio.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Rough, tough, strong, and as you'll find out through listening to some of her songs, particularly sensitive to the sadness of others.
* TakeThat: "Stupid Girls"
** TakeThatCritics: From "Don't Let Me Get Me":
-->"Tired of being compared to damn Music/BritneySpears\\
She's so pretty that just ain't me"
** "Don't Let Me Get Me" also has a regular TakeThat to her former producer L.A. Reed.
* ThoseMagnificentFlyingMachines: The video for "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" prominently features a {{Steampunk}} pedal-powered ornithopter.
* TitleTrack: Every album but ''Try This''.
* {{Tsundere}}: "True Love", featuring Music/LilyAllen, probably exemplifies this trope, though she has several other songs about her...''conflicted'' feelings, often based on real-life drama.
* VideoFullOfFilmClips: The video for "Feel Good Time", due to the song being featured on the soundtrack to ''Film/CharliesAngelsFullThrottle''.
* WomanScorned: "There You Go" and some parts of the video for "So What". Ironically, it was her husband (whom she was in the middle of divorcing) appearing in "So What" that got them back together. The divorce was never finalised.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: ''Missundaztood''. Also, "pink" isn't usually spelled with an exclamation point in place of the i.
* {{Yandere}}: Pink acts violently obsessive toward her lover in the music video for "Please Don't Leave Me".
* YouHaveToHaveJews: She's half-Jewish (on her mother's side, which mean's it's "official") and jokingly attributes her strong work ethic to Jewish guilt.
