In a year marked by economy-changing concert tours for major pop stars like Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, one artist has flown a little under the radar while also flying high pulling off stunts her peers can only dream of. And this artist is pink.
The three-time Grammy Award winner and notorious open book star sat down with Cecilia Vega 60 minutes Sunday’s episode will talk about things like her childhood, her past struggles with addiction, and her entry into the world of winemaking. She also explained why she doesn’t care that her tour hasn’t gotten the same kind of attention as some of her peers this year, and how the hell she can sing. And Be an acrobat at the same time during the performance.
In support of her album trustPink launched her eighth ever concert tour in London last June under the title Summer Carnival, which is scheduled to end in March 2024 in Australia. CBS She mentioned that the tour has sold $350 million worth of tickets worldwide so far this year, but when asked why it doesn’t win the popularity contest with her peers, Pink doesn’t seem to care either way.
“We’ve sold three million tickets in the last six months, but you don’t hear about it unless you go,” she said. “So, at the end of the day, do I really acknowledge who’s talking about me? As long as the mother and daughter, or the father in the pink shirt, and his daughter and her three friends are having a great time. Or the gay couple who got together and felt completely safe at my show because no one bothered them. And that’s it.” What really matters.”
Unfortunately for Pink, a few bumps in the road have derailed her current tour a bit, after she had to cancel two shows in Tacoma, Washington, due to a “family medical issue,” and then had to cancel at least two more shows in Vancouver at the end of the year. Last week due to a “respiratory infection.”
Pink in the sky
Along with countless hit songs from over 20 years in the music industry, Pink’s tour is highlighted by the fact that she also performs high flying moves while singing and flipping over 100 feet in the air.
The 44-year-old singer, who also suffers from asthma, said she has been using gymnastics lessons since childhood to help her with her stunts, while also working with aerobics coach Drea Weber. Since Pink doesn’t do any lip syncing during her set, she practices to be able to sing upside down or right side up and everything in between. To further demonstrate, Pink asked Weber to stand on her stomach for… 60 minutes cameras while Pink belted out a few lines from the song flawlessly.
“I’m not just a singer. I’m a gymnast. I can do all kinds of things. I’m physical,” Pink said. “This body, like the muscles that scare people – it’s my strength, isn’t it? “It’s like I’m not eating well to look good, I’m eating well to go far, fast and strong.”
If the idea of a performer singing and doing stunts high above the audience sounds like an act tailor-made for Las Vegas, well, Pink is also thinking along those lines when it comes to the next chapter.
“I would love to have the best show Vegas has ever had. And I think I can do it. For an artist like me to have a stage that doesn’t have to travel, oh my gosh, you can,” she said. Do So a lot.”
Delving deeper into what the future holds, Pink said the “hard edge” she has in life and the work she has done as a result has given her a lot to lean on moving forward.
“I never got a record deal because I was nice. I got a record deal because I was fiery,” she said. “I had a lot to say, and I had a voice. So I feel relieved that I don’t have to fall back on some kind of traditional beauty. This doesn’t have to be my thing. And I don’t have to keep doing that either as I get older. I don’t have to be that. “I can be all of this.”
