People magazine’s annual ‘Most Beautiful‘ issue just got a facelift
P!nk appears on the cover of the magazine’s 2018 ‘Beautiful’ issue with her daughter Willow, 6, and son Jameson, 1, for a feature more focused on parenting and self-love than just the singer’s looks.
“I tell my daughter the truth,” Pink says in the story, which hits newsstands Friday, via excerpts provided to NBC’s Today. “I let her be six, but I want her to know about fairness and kindness and that you have to fight for your rights, and that sometimes girls aren’t paid as much as boys for the same job, and girls aren’t treated the same, and that they have to work harder for everything.”
Appearing on Wednesday’s Ellen, April 17, to celebrate the magazine cover, the singer joked that she “laughed out loud” when she found out she would be on the cover.
For this list, we’re taking a look at the most insane, incredible Pink performances ever! We’ve included performances at the Billboard Music Awards, Grammy Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Festival and the American Music Awards!
P!nk took the grand stage at Super Bowl LII to sing the national anthem just before kickoff where she paid homage to her “idol,” Whitney Houston.
This Super Bowl holds a special significance to the Grammy-winning artist as she is a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan, having spent the lead-up to the game posting snaps of her children and family rooting for the team.
Pink Nails the National Anthem Before Super Bowl LII, Despite the Flu
Despite a well-publicized battle with the flu in the days before Super Bowl LII, Philadelphia-area native Pink positively nailed the National Anthem.
Clad in a satiny white outfit and with bright blonde hair, the three-time Grammy winner was true to her badass image, removing a throat lozenge just before she began singing (and setting off a torrest of Internet memes in the process).
She played loose with the song’s timing, occasionally hitting a note just inside the tempo set by the accompanying orchestra, but hit every note with ease, at times breaking up a note or toying with the phrasing, possibly in an effort to sidestep the challenges of singing with the flu, but her voice was strong and on-point and she had little trouble holding notes.
Let it never be said that P!nk doesn’t continue to challenge herself
As impressive as previous award-show aerial displays of hers may have been, it’s hard to compare them to what she did Sunday night, November 19, at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles.
P!nk brought her usual anti-gravity ballet to the award show, but this time it came from the JW Marriott Hotel in Los Angeles – many, many stories above the ground, all while performing her latest single, “Beautiful Trauma.”
Along with several dancers, the singer performed hanging by high wire while walking along the side of the the skyscraper, giving off a perspective making it look like they were gravity bound to it, while in reality they were suspended in midair hundreds of feet above the ground.
P!NK Collaborates With BANDALOOP
BANDALOOP friends who tuned in to the American Music Awards last night in the US spotted the global pioneers of vertical dance. Members of the dance company made a surprise appearance on the side of a downtown Los Angeles skyscraper with an iconic singer:
Grammy Award-winner P!NK.
Teams quietly convened from around the US at a guarded location in Los Angeles to bring a daring idea to fruition: coach a brand new Bandalooper to dance on the side of a building with the company for a performance being broadcast to millions in less than a week.
The result: fearless grace and beauty. P!NK and BANDALOOP dazzled with perspective changing dance, opening the hearts and minds of the audience – while P!NK sang her newest single “Beautiful Trauma” from the sky in a duet with BANDALOOP Associate Artistic Director Melecio Estrella.
“What About Us” is a song by American singer and songwriter Pink. It was written by P!nk, Steve Mac and Johnny McDaid, with production handled by Mac. The song was released through RCA Records on August 10, 2017, as the lead single from P!nk’s upcoming seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma (2017).
“What About Us” is described as an emotional club ballad and dance floor anthem with pounding drums and an array of synthesizers. The song has also been described as a protest song.

P!nk took viewers on a trip through her long, hit-laden song history on Sunday night during MTV’s Video Music Awards. It was a wild, impressive ride. From the classic 2001 hit “Get The Party Started” to her emotional new single “What About Us,” the star singer managed to fit many of her most memorable tracks into an ambitious, old-school – and fun – medley.
Introduced by Ellen DeGeneres, P!nk took home the night’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for her decades-spanning career in the spotlight.
“Recently I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me ‘Mama, I’m the ugliest girl I know,'”
“I know I don’t have a lot of time, but if I may tell you a quick story. Recently, I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me, out of the blue, ‘Mama?’ I said, ‘Yes, baby?’ She said, ‘I’m the ugliest girl I know.’ And I said, ‘Huh?’ And she was like, ‘Yeah, I look like a boy with long hair.’ And my brain went to, ‘Oh my god, you’re six. Why? Where is this coming from? Who said this? Can I kick a 6-year-old’s ass, like what?’
But I didn’t say anything.
Instead I went home and I made a Powerpoint presentation for her. And in that presentation were androgynous rockstars and artists that live their truth, are probably made fun of every day of their life, and carry on, wave their flag and inspire the rest of us. And these are artists like Michael Jackson and David Bowie and Freddie Mercury and Annie Lennox and Prince and Janis Joplin and George Michael, Elton John, so many artists – her eyes glazed over. But then I said, ‘You know, I really want to know why you feel this way about yourself.’ And she said, ‘Well I look like a boy,’ and I said, ‘Well what do you think I look like?’ And she said, ‘Well you’re beautiful.’ And I was like, ‘Well, thanks. But when people make fun of me, that’s what they use. They say I look like a boy or I’m too masculine or I have too many opinions, my body is too strong.’
And I said to her, ‘Do you see me growing my hair?’ She said, ‘No, mama.’ I said, ‘Do you see me changing my body?’ ‘No, mama.’ ‘Do you see me changing the way I present myself to the world?’ ‘No, mama.’ ‘Do you see me selling out arenas all over the world?’ ‘Yes, Mama.’
‘OK! So, baby girl. We don’t change. We take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so they can see more kinds of beauty.’
And to all the artists here, I’m so inspired by all of you. Thank you for being your true selves and for lighting the way for us. I’m so inspired by you guys. There’s so much rad shit happening in music. And keep doing it. Keep shining for the rest of us to see.
And you, my darling girl, are beautiful, and I love you. Thank you, MTV. This is a really special night. Thank you, Ellen. I couldn’t love you more.
Céline Dion performed her new song “Recovering” during the 2016 Stand Up To Cancer benefit on Friday night, September 9.
The celebrity fundraiser aired live from the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, where dozens of A-list stars gathered to raise money for cancer research.
The hour-long, commercial-free telecast featured several musical performances and special guests, but Dion’s emotional tribute to her late husband, René Angelil, was one of the night’s bittersweet highlights.
René Angelil died in January following a lengthy battle with throat cancer. Just two days later, Dion’s brother Daniel tragically passed away from a combination of brain, throat and tongue cancer.
“Recovering,” which was written specifically for Dion by fellow singer P!nk, will be included on Dion’s upcoming album.
