Quotes: "My dad raised me with some good advice: 'Always tell the
truth. Always shoot from the hip. You might not have many friends, but you'll never have enemies, because people will always know where you're coming from.'" - Pink.
"I was extreme... from skateboarder to hip-hopper to rave child to lead singer of a rock band - I did it all, and all at the same time" - Pink about her teen years.
"I'm about to make people forget about Madonna" - Pink.
"I decided at 15 that I didn't want to be one of those artists that gets up and sings love songs they don't mean. I decided that I was going to be me to the fullest extent, that my songs
were going to reflect relationships I've had, things I've been through, and even the stuff I'm embarrassed about" - Pink.
