Despite dropping jaws with aerial acrobatics and stunts at many of her live showings for the last 7 years, P!nk has had enough of those who’ve complained about her “same old” aerial stunts in her high octane stage shows lately.
Taking to the New York Times to sound off, the pop performer proclaimed:
“How many times do you see the same artist get up and lip-sync and dance?” she countered. “And you’re mad at me for doing something none of them can do? And I sing live!”
Those detractors are certainly not the only ones who’ll take umbrage with the beauty’s bluntness. When quizzed on Kesha and her lengthy legal battle with producer Dr. Luke, P!nk (who teamed with him to helm her hits 2000’s hits ‘U+Ur Hand’ and ‘Who Knew’) minced absolutely no words with her answer. Referring to him as “not a good person,” she went on to tell the newspaper the backlash from his public fallout with Kesha was “his karma.”
Talk about ouch! See what else she said inside:
“I don’t know what happened,” she said of Kesha’s much-publicized claims that Dr. Luke was sexually and verbally abusive. “But I know that regardless of whether or not Dr. Luke did that, this is his karma and he earned it because he’s not a good person.”
“I have told him that to his face and I do not work with him,” she added. “He doesn’t do good business, he’s not a kind person, he doesn’t do the right thing when given ample opportunities to do so, and I don’t really feel that bad for him.”
The singer, now 38, reflected on her storied career and addressed the uphill battle for aging pop stars.
“I had the whole sit-down, you know: ‘Just be prepared, they don’t play girls over 35 on Top 40 radio,’” the singer said. “There are exceptions, but they’re songs, not artists — unless you’re Beyoncé.”
If the top 30 success of ‘What About Us’ – the first single from her new album, ‘Beautiful Trauma,’ is anything to judge by, P!nk will be just fine!
