Perhaps it’s my general love of slightly salty women (Courtney Love and Amy Winehouse would certainly fall into this category), but I LOVE Pink (or P!nk, or whatever she’s called). Not only is she in possession of a truly great singing voice, but there’s a sense of authenticity in her music that’s not present in the music of most of her pop peers.

Hard to believe, but she’s about to release her fifth album this fall. It will be the follow-up to the Platinum-plus “I’m Not Dead”, an album I got right away but it took the general public a little more time to appreciate. The first single, “So What?”. finds her a little feister than usual and being more candid than usual about her personal life, directly referencing her recent divorce from motocross star Carey Hart (no, not the “Sunglasses at Night” guy. That’s COREY Hart). Although it’s slightly reminiscent of “Dead”‘s breakthrough hit “U + Ur Hand” (with a little “Stupid Girls” thrown in…witness the sideways jab at Jessica Simpson), it’s still more awesome than the average retread. Check it out for yourself.
