P!nk

Media Title

One of our most commercially successful local heroes has come so damn far, from bouncing around clubs in Philadelphia in her mid-teens to a stuttering but ultimately legit solo deal with L.A. Reid to opening for N’Sync to No. 1 hits. And yet she’s still not a hugely famous pop star when compared to the divas she is so often compared to—Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Of the three, she’s certainly the most unique, punk and emotionally intuitive. With last year’s outstanding The Truth About Love, she confirmed what most fans knew all along: She’s better than everyone else, amassing new followers with each record. She’s multi-faceted and deeper than most pop musicians would even attempt.
The erstwhile Alecia Beth Moore’s been doing us right since 2000’s slightly hood Can’t Take Me Home, featuring the singles “There You Go” and “Most Girls,” songs that are still as tight as ever 13 years later. In 2001 she exploded, due in large part to her appearance on that hilarious time capsule of a moment, “Lady Marmalade,” featuring Mya, Lil’ Kim and XTina. But Missundaztood is so excellent, an underrated pop masterpiece that’s as durable as ever more than a decade later. She’s toured the daylights out of pretty much every record and turns in breathtaking performances at each music-awards ceremony where she’s invited to perform. That intoxicating blend of punk Philly chick, gymnast-trained athleticism, killer pipes and snarling sense of humor is enough to make Pink the now-and-forever Queen of PA Pop. / Bill Chenevert
