Pink has a lot to say, and whatever she’s talking about at the time, my ears are perked up.
The 33-year-old singer, who is getting ready to kick off her U.S. tour this Wednesday (Feb. 13), sat down with People to chat about the Grammys (she’s was nominated for the “best pop vocal” category, but lost to Kelly Clarkson), her song process, and her husband Carey Hart.
When asked how she goes about recording Grammy nominated hit albums (“The Truth About Love”), she says:
“When I start a record, I’m like, ‘God, I wonder if I can even sing.’ But I write poetry and keep a journal, then the first day I go into the studio, I’m like, ‘Here we go, I’m turning the faucet on!’ I bottle it up for so long that the inspiration is always there.”
When asked how she got Eminem to appear on “Here Comes The Weekend”:
“He wanted me to be on his last record (2010′s Recovery), so I said, ‘Yeah, let’s swap.’ I’m a die-hard Eminem fan. I think he’s awesome.”
Pointing out how Pink vents about the relationship she has with her husband Carey Hart, and asked how he feels about that?
“He’s like, ‘Look, I know you, we have a good sense of humor, and I know what I signed up for. I only listen to half of what you say anyway!’ When he starts listening to me too much, we have problems!”
Asked what her darling 20-month-old daughter Willow thinks of mama’s music?
“The first time she heard my music, she kind of looked at me and got the weirdest expression on her face. I wondered, ‘God, what’s going on in there for her?’”
When asked what her best hangover cure is she says:
“Drink a beer as soon as possible! I used to be able to drink a bottle of wine and not get a hangover. Now, after two glasses I have a headache.”
I love it all! But I have to point out, the ‘hair of the dog’ hangover cure doesn’t always work for me. I swear by coconut water. It’s a lifesaver for a hangover!
