Mini Bio (1)

Alecia "Pink" Moore was born in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and later raised in Philadelphia. Her parents, James Jim Moore and Judy Judith Moore, divorced when she was very young. As a child, all Pink wanted out of life was to become a singer, and she was driven by the music of Madonna, Mary J. Blige, 4 Non Blondes, Janis Joplin, Billy Joel and Whitney Houston. Pink was a very unique teenager, and went through phases as a skateboarder, hip-hopper and gymnast. She spent several years as part of the club scene in Philadelphia, singing guest spots and performing for talent shows. At the age of 13, she was asked by a local DJ to sing back-up for his rap group, Schools of Thought. A short time later, she was discovered by a record executive and joined a female R&B group, Choice. When that didn't work out, she signed with LaFace Records and began her solo career. In spring 2000, she released her debut, "Can't Take Me Home". She co-wrote many songs and watched it go multi-platinum by the year's end. Her debut included the Top 10 hit, "There You Go", which was certified a gold single.

It has been frequently, but incorrectly, reported that Alecia is the cousin of Mandy Moore.
Alecia Moore is not the first Pennsylvania-born celebrity to go by the nickname Pink. The same sobriquet was briefly used by Elizabeth Cochrane (or Cochran, 1864-1922), who later became known as Nellie Bly. Cochran(e)/Bly famously broke gender barriers as a whistle-blowing journalist, travel writer, industrialist, war correspondent, and philanthropist in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She is best known for her world-circumnavigating voyage in the winter of 1889-90, wherein she became the first person to prove the plausibility of the Jules Verne novel 80 Days Around the World, i.e. that someone could make such a journey in such a time span.

When I was in seventh grade my mom caught me smoking cigarettes and punished me by making me smoke the entire carton. All it did was piss me off because I was out of cigarettes.
I appreciate being a girl more now than ever. There's a struggle involved in it, but it's so rewarding when you prove to all men that you might have something up on 'em.
I have to speak for myself. As far as videos go--casting, the artwork, everything--I'm completely hands-on. You have to be if you want your points across.

Just read that I'm bisexual. So 1991. Good thing people write articles about me so I can get my facts straight. Can't wait for the day when people stop talking about sexual preference or that a woman is a CEO and actually start making the world liveable.
