Pink butch walker dating
Pink, who's break-ups have been much more public than Walker's, supplies perfect backing vocals as a reminder that the end of a relationship always changes both people.
“She’s beautiful, she’s multitalented, and she lives this jet-set lifestyle.And then there’s me: you would picture me out in a field boxing a kangaroo with makeup running down my face, crying about something that happened a week ago.” Post-rehearsal, Pink stands onstage with eight musicians, five dancers, and one aerialist, giving a play-by-play of the previous evening, when the female performers had a girls’ night out.“I thought you were going to wear a skirt and heels so you could come with us,” Pink teases French trapeze artist Sebastien Stella.The walls have been painted hot pink in honor of her historic run of shows.“I have so much shit in my teeth,” she complains, inspecting herself in the mirror. She channels the inner monologue: “Oh my God, you guys, I totally had more than 300 calories today! ” Pink, whose career took off at the same time as Britney’s and Christina’s, has a complicated relationship with the phrase “pop star.” “It could be factual, it could be a compliment, it could be demeaning,” she says.“The consensus was that you don’t have to spit on it before, just go for it,” she says. ” Dancer/choreographer Leo Moctezuma sidles up to me. “But I love her.” Cuckoo, maybe–but she’s also warm, unaffected, charming, and smart.
“We’ll see when I get home–I have a couple of weeks to think about my strategy.” She envisions coming home to her husband: “Carey, get in here! She’s capable of contradicting herself within the space of an hour, but never seems two-faced–it’s just that she genuinely believes the opposite of what she used to. “It says five foot five on my driver’s license, but that was just my fantasy,” she says. And right now I’m weighing in at a very strong, diesel 128 pounds.” After a pre-show dinner (salmon, steamed vegetables), the singer returns to her dressing room.
She celebrates her freedom, but has “the most regimented schedule of anyone I know.” She describes herself as shy, yet she shares intimate details of her life with anybody who turns on the radio: her 2008 album tour, which combines her biggest hits with Cirque du Soleil-style aerial acrobatics, has played for an astonishing 58 arena dates, including 17 in Melbourne alone.
On September 15th, the tour lands in the United States, where Pink has never headlined arena shows before (although she did serve as an opening act for Justin Timberlake in 2007 and impressed early arrivals by performing “Get the Party Started” while twirling high above the stage).
The only thing preventing her from falling and cracking open her skull is the large fishing net that she’s wrapped around her body. The lyrics are about masturbating late at night next to a sleeping lover: “I need more than you are gonna give.” Balancing her torso the way the song balances lust and frustration, Pink snaps her legs shut.
Then she swings around, slingshots herself out the net, and executes an elegant dismount.
Besides making his own music, Walker's written songs for Taylor Swift, Katy Perry and Pink, and produced for Brian Fallon, Fall Out Boy, and Frank Turner. I had been worried I wouldn’t ever write again after that record. It was a dark record and I worried I had nothing left.
