Update on formerly relevant celebrities: Pink


MTV apparently gives Pink a high enough score on the celeb-o-meter to devote a feature article about what an exciting year 2006 looks like it will be for her.

Her new non-ironically titled album I'm Not Dead is going to come out in a couple of months, and will feature a political track expressing her outrage at the state of our nation's foreign policy, titled "Dear Mr. President." With this song, Pink will join the ranks of political singer-songwriters Pete Seeger, Master P, and 4 Non Blondes, who also have released songs called "Dear Mr. President."

Guess how many albums Pink will have released when this new one comes out. FOUR.

And that's not all. Pink will also star in a new Romanian horror movie called Catacombs, along with another one-named actor, "Cain".

I don't know about you, but I totally lost track of Pink sometime shortly after news of her alleged title role in Gospel According to Janis, one of two planned Janis Joplin biopics, faded into nothing.

The other biopic is Piece of My Heart, which is/was to star Renee Zellweger. Considering both movies have planned release dates of 2005 on IMDb, we may never get to see the battle to determine which actress is better at crying and drinking a bottle of Southern Comfort at the same time.

By rule, irrelevance sets in immediately upon one's marriage to a motocross rider. That said, that "Family Portrait" video with the crying little girl always gets to me.

Interestingly (or not), 4 Non Blondes' lead singer Linda Perry (if my memory of her name serves) was also co-writer of a lot of songs on Pink's second album, where she morphed from trying to sound like Destiny's Child to trying to sound like a pop-rock artist. We have Pink to blame for Avril and for Kelly Clarkson getting all hardcore and adding guitars. Thanks, Pink!
