It’s the first of the month so that means I gotta invoice all my clients, which also means I don’t have all day to write a long blog for you. And what else is there to say about this subject? Well, I’ll find out…which is another reason I don’t have all day to blog about it.
In addition to drawing a cartoon today, writing this blog, creating another video, and invoicing all my clients, I gotta get ready for a trip.
Where am I going? It’s a short trip. I’m leaving tomorrow (Sunday) and will be back Wednesday night. I’m going to watch something historic and while I’m there, I’ll document it for you.
And let me just say “thank you” again to everyone who supports me financially because without you, I wouldn’t be able to do crazy stuff like jumping on a train on short notice to watch the…
The superstar performer opened up the show with a truly incredible acrobatic performance of “TRUSTFALL,” from her album of the same name. As she belted out the hopeful lyrics about taking a chance, the performers in the back repeatedly bounced around onstage on giant trampolines in front of colorful changing background visuals.
Keeping up with the theme of the upbeat song, she even performed a trust fall of her very own, wowing the crowd as she dropped backwards from a platform into the waiting arms of her backup dancers.

P!nk Acceptance Speech – Icon Award – 2023 iHeartRadio Music Award
“As human beings, we are vulnerable from the time we are born until the time we die and most of us spend our entire lives running from that. Vulnerability means the ability to be wounded. I have decided to make vulnerability my life’s work and for those of you around the world that have joined me on this adventure, I thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she added.
“I’m grateful to be alive. I’m grateful that I get to do this with my one precious life. Most of all, Willow and Jameson, I’m grateful to be your momma.”
“I oscillate between hope and despair, love and rage, and many kinds of tears these days,” she said in a press release.
“I see us all living and breathing and struggling. I taste your fear because it is my own. But no matter what or how or why, I will dance with you through all of it.”
P!nk accepted the Icon Award in a massive way during the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards ceremony on Monday. The singer celebrated the distinction onstage by duetting with Kelly Clarkson, before accepting the award from her fellow powerhouse vocalist, and highlighting the power of being vulnerable.
“I usually do try to joke or be self-deprecating in these moments, but I want to be a better friend to myself tonight. I would like to try and say something honest. Every room I walk into, my heart walks in first. Every lyric that I write is my heart crying, raging, hoping, screaming, pleading,” she said. “You have watched me do this: Sifting through life’s messiness for almost 25 years. And some of you find what I do annoying and some of you find it brave and I just find it necessary.”
