Pink, the renowned artist who’s been captivating audiences on her Summer Carnival tour, has shared a harrowing chapter from her past.
The 44-year-old singer, who recently had to cancel some tour dates due to health concerns, opened up about a near-death experience that almost claimed her life during her younger years.
Pink’s astonishing admission places this life-altering moment in an unusual context – it occurred just weeks before she was about to sign her very first record deal.
Recounting the incident, she disclosed, “Thanksgiving 1995, I was at a rave, and I overdosed.”
The singer continued, describing the substances involved, “I was on ecstasy, angel dust, crystal, all kinds of things, and then I was out, done, too much.”
During an interview, Pink delved further into the details of her near-death experience, sitting comfortably at her kitchen table, exuding her trademark confidence and style.
The Grammy-winning artist, known legally as Alecia Moore, revisited a dark chapter in her life when she was just 16 years old.
She recounted, “I got into drugs, I was selling drugs, and then I was kicked out of the house. I dropped out of high school. I was off the rails.”
Following her life-altering close call with a drug overdose, Pink made a remarkable transformation.
She revealed that she immediately stopped using drugs, marking a pivotal turning point in her life.
Only weeks after this brush with death, the “Family Portrait” singer signed her first record deal with LaFace Records, becoming part of a girl group she described as the “token white girls on a Black label.”
