Pink Sick of Politics of Music

Pink is sick of business managers, lawyers and talking to radio disc jockeys, and you definitely won’t find her singing about chocolate. The themes of her current album, “M!ssundaztood,” find Pink fighting against bad relationships in her strident, sorely independent ways.

“To me, it was all about freedom,” she told the Las Vegas Review-Journal of her music. “Life is not always flowers and chocolates, and I figured people could relate to that.”

She’s happy, she says, although she’s sick of the politics of music.

Pink, 22, broke onto radio and MTV in 2000 with the hit “There You Go.” In 2001, she was one of four singers teaming up for the hit remake of “Lady Marmalade.” And in the past few months, she raced up the pop charts with the single “Get the Party Started.”

Now, she is on her first headlining tour, arriving Sunday at the Palms in Las Vegas. She will tour with rocker Lenny Kravitz later in the year, a gig she convinced Kravitz should be hers.

“A couple of months ago, I heard” he was going on tour, she said. “So I called him. I said, ‘You should come down to my rehearsal.’ He’s, like, ‘Why? What are you rehearsing for?’ I said, ‘Your tour.’ “
