Pink Candidly Discusses Her Hits and Misses in an Interview with the Los Angeles Times. In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Pink openly shared her thoughts on her music career, specifically delving into what she considers her best and worst singles. When asked about her “best and worst singles,” the pop-rocker didn’t hold back.
When it came to naming her worst single, Pink hesitated but ultimately mentioned “True Love,” a song from 2012 featuring English singer Lily Allen. She cited the song’s somewhat harsh lyrics, like “You’re an asshole, but I love you,” as the reason for her choice. Interestingly, her husband, former motocross star Carey Hart, appeared in the music video for the track, and Pink explained, “Carey’s got thick skin, but I owe him a love song.”
But Pink wasn’t finished with her self-critique. She jokingly added another contender for her worst single, referring to a 2009 track she did for Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants, titled “We’ve Got Scurvy.” While her tone wasn’t specified in the transcription, it’s safe to assume she was kidding, given the whimsical nature of the project.
When it came to her best singles, the Grammy winner proudly mentioned two tracks: “Get the Party Started” from 2001 and “So What” from 2008. Interestingly, “So What” was a song about a temporary separation from her husband, Carey Hart. Notably, this song played a role in bringing them back together. Pink revealed that reaching out to Hart to ask him to appear in the music video for “So What” helped reconcile their relationship. She fondly recalled, “‘So What’ was fun from start to finish — writing it, singing it, performing it, the video. It was part of what got Carey and I back together.”
In her candid interview, Pink shared both her musical triumphs and moments of self-deprecating humor, providing a glimpse into her journey as a celebrated artist.
