Pink: Everything is a song now

Pink said her life is a lot more fun these days

Pink has revealed her new album reflects that she's having "more fun" these days.

The US star - who is unveiling her new record The Truth About Love - said she used to be "really dark" but hinted that things have changed now that she is mum to 15-month-old daughter Willow.

She said: "Now, I wake up and check her pulse and make sure she's not having a temperature. And then we dance. And we dance, and we dance, and we dance.

"Then, we go on bike rides. And we dance some more. Everything's a song. It's just a lot more fun. I guess that's how the record reflects where I am right now. I'm just having a lot more fun than I ever have."

Pink calls her new album, which features Eminem, Nate Ruess of Fun and Lily Rose Cooper "just kinda all over the place".

"(I was) just having fun. I think that's a new thing for me. I was having a lot more fun than I was having before. I think production-wise it's a lot more interesting," she said. "The musicality, I feel like I raised the bar for myself."

Pink revealed that being a mother helped to lighten her mood while recording, and also changed the process.

She explained: "Studio sessions used to be like, 'OK. I'm gonna start my record. Get the whiskey and some cigarettes, and let's do this (expletive) thing'.

"Now, it's Monday through Friday from 1 to 10pm. She would be there every couple of hours. Everyone I worked with was either a parent or friend, so it was very, very easy."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
