We'd Better Get the Pink Party Started

Article excerpt

Byline: By Gordon Barr

Pop star Pink makes her North East debut later this month, and she's planning to down a few beers while here, as Showbusiness Reporter Gordon Barr finds out

Q. Your first-ever visit to Newcastle. Looking forward to it?

A. It will be good going to Newcastle. I'm looking forward to trying some Newcastle Brown Ale. I'm a beer girl, so that will be fun. I like to try anything new.

Q. What else do you like about the UK?

A. The accent. I always used to copy it when I was younger because I thought it made me sound cooler. There's something in the water over here, I just like being here. Everyone just seems to want to have a good time. And I love the sense of humour. People are too uptight where I'm from. I mean, not everyone, but some people. In the UK everyone likes to go out and have fun.

Q. If you get time to go out and explore when you're on tour, what do you like to do?

A. It's hard when you're on tour because you kind of forget where you are. Things are always so busy and you're moving around from place to place a lot. But I love getting to see new places and I love going to museums. I also like going to local bars that are away from the hotel districts and the tourist parts so I can find out what the city is really like. Usually on tour I also spend a lot of time sitting in my hotel room relaxing and reading books, or sitting on my bus and think about my dogs.

A. When I'm on a tour which is gruelling and long, I have to keep things mellow otherwise I get so tired and I can't perform every night. I sing really hard and it takes a lot of energy, so when everyone else is going out to bars and to parties, I kind of pack it in and take some time out. When I'm just on a promotional tour I can party no problem because I'll only be performing one song and doing interviews all day. I don't think many singers who really let loose and sing in a big way can do it. It's impossible. If you're drinking a lot and smoking and talking loudly and going out to clubs and bars you're going to put on a bad show. And I don't want to do that. …
