Sitting snuggly at number 9 is the alternative music sensation Pink, who has never let being a woman hold her back from doing anything she has set her eyes on.
Alecia Beth Moore (born September 8, 1979), better known by her stage name, Pink (stylized as P!nk), is an American singer-songwriter and musician. She released her first single “There You Go”, on her first album, the R&B-oriented Can’t Take Me Home, in 2000 via LaFace Records, which garnered commercial success. Her more pop rock-oriented second studio album, Missundaztood, which began a marked shift in the sound of her music, was released in 2001 and was a huge success worldwide.
Pink released her third album, Try This, in November 2003, which although less successful commercially than her previous release, still managed to sell around 3 million copies and earned her a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance for the single “Trouble”.
Her fourth album, I’m Not Dead, was released in April 2006. The album generated several hit singles, including “Stupid Girls”, “U + Ur Hand” and “Who Knew”. Both “U + Ur Hand” and “Who Knew” went to #1 on the pop chart. Her fifth album, Funhouse, was released in late October 2008 and was preceded by her first solo number one on the Billboard Hot 100, “So What”. The album notched three other Top 20 hits: “Sober”, “Please Don’t Leave Me” and “Glitter in the Air”. On November 15, 2010, she released her first compilation, Greatest Hits… So Far!!!.
According to Billboard, Pink was rated #13 on the list of Artists of the Decade and #1 Pop Song Artist of the Decade (2000–2009). She has also scored ten Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 US hits, including eight as a solo artist, and has won two Grammy Awards, 5 MTV Video Music Awards and 2 Brit Awards. The People’s Chart, announced through BBC Radio 1, declared Pink as the 11th Most Played Artist on UK Radio of the decade 2000 to 2009.
Pink has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide. Forbes Magazine in 2010 named Pink the 27th most powerful celebrity, with $44 million earned between June 2009 and June 2010.
Not resting on her success, Pink has also usd her popularity for causes that she believes in, one of them being an activist for PETA.
Pink is a prominent campaigner for PETA, contributing her voice toward causes such as protesting against KFC. She sent a letter to Prince William criticizing him for fox hunting, and one to Queen Elizabeth II protesting the use of real fur in the bearskins of the Foot Guards and the Honourable Artillery Company. In conjunction with PETA, she criticized the Australian wool industry over its use of mulesing.
In January 2007, she stated that she had been misled by PETA about mulesing and that she had not done enough research before lending her name to the campaign. Her campaigning led to a headlining concert in Cardiff, Wales, UK, on August 21, 2007 called PAW (Party for Animals Worldwide).
