YMMV: P!nk
  • Australians Love Pink: She is the most sucessful concert act in Australian history, having had 17 sold-out shows in Melbourne, a city of less than 4 million. It's no wonder that her most recent live album was recorded in Australia.
  • Awesome Music:
    • SOBER! One could call it one of the best pop songs of the past ten years and not be inaccurate. Her voice on that track is some of her best work.
    • "Glitter in the Air." Especially her live performance at the 2010 Grammys.
  • Broken Base: There are those who hate her first album but love her rockier sound, and then there are those who only like her first album and hate the rest of them.
    • There are, of course, a good number of fans who like all her albums. But you'll rarely hear her current fans say that "Can't Take Me Home" is their favorite. The fact that P!nk has openly criticized her first album and basically rebelled against everything it stood for with her second doesn't help matters.
    • Her third album, Try This, which is her lowest-selling album to date, with no major hits to its name. It's seen by some as a cool new direction, involving punk and soul elements, while others find it boring and say P!nk tries too hard to come off as edgy and a badass throughout the album.
  • Crazy Awesome: In particular, her increasing inclusion of circus aerial performance in her live concerts.
  • Ear Worm: Quite a few.
  • Funny Moments: Many of her music videos have a comedic element, but "Stupid Girl" takes the cake.
    • In "Raise Your Glass", Pink is seen in bed with a young nun, and is quickly reciting prayers.
  • Heartwarming In Hindsight: "Please Don't Leave Me"
  • Les Yay: "Oh My God" is P!nk and openly bisexual Peaches singing to each other about girl-on-girl bondage. It has lines like "Problem solved/it's dissolved/with the solvent known as spit/Lickity lick not so quick it's a/Slick ride/make my mink slide/'Cause we're all pink inside". Also in the video for "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)", which has P!nk in a triangle with a married couple while being extremely ambiguous about which of them she's actually attached to.
  • Moment Of Awesome: The 2010 Grammy performance. She sang while suspended from the ceiling at least twenty feet above the crowd by little more than ordinary cloth, without a harness. Without messing up one note.
  • Signature Song: "Get the Party Started".
  • Squick: The video for "F**kin Perfect" has a scene with a girl in a blood-filled bathtub who has just cut herself multiple times.
    • That's understating it, she didn't just cut herself, she carved the word "perfect" into her arm, with what look like half inch deep cuts.
    • The milking in "Raise Your Glass". Of course, her being a vegetarian, that was probably the point.
      • Not quite vegetarian - she's pescatarian (the only meat she eats his fish, and she eats animal products other than meat, such as milk). But yeah, that probably WAS the point, since she doesn't eat beef.
  • Nightmare Fuel: The aforementioned bathtub scene in "F**kin' Perfect." Made even worse by the fact that it looks like the girl is dead.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: After a concert in Glasgow at least one newspaper the next day ran a story about outraged parents that had taken their young children to see her some how not knowing that her lyrics can be rather rude.
