Alphanista Moment: Pink’s Upside Down Performance
By Guest Blogger Mila
My absolute favorite performance at the Grammy’s last week was by Pink.
Talk about a spectacular show! She was amazing, hanging from silks, performing acrobatics, and singing her new song “Glitter in the Air”. A gymnast for 8 years, Pink learned acrobatics for the tour of her new album, Funhouse. Her tour dazzled audiences all over the globe, and her Grammy performance received a standing ovation.
Pink is a strong woman known for her bold personality. In contrast with her past albums, her new album is humble with insights on love and relationships. Recently back together with her husband (did you know she proposed to him, after she turned him down twice?), Pink said to Oprah in an interview last week that she spent 6 years trying to make her husband perfect. Then she realized she herself wasn’t perfect. Instead, she learned to be flexible and humble in her relationship. If you remember the rebellious song, “So What”, about her breakup you’ll find that Pink’s new songs are very different. I think the one that best exemplifies her new attitude is called “I Don’t Believe You”.
Pink also admitted to Oprah that the best advice she ever received was- If you’re looking for someone with 20 characteristics, make sure you have all of them first. Then you realize no one is perfect, including yourself. She said that the hardest thing was realizing this and admitting she was wrong. Pink’s performance at the Grammy’s was a tribute to her new outlook. She said that after she stopped spinning in the air and the dizziness subsided, she told herself, “Well done,” as she acknowledged the cheering audience. It was an inspirational Alphanista moment.
