Pink wrote about how music saved her life in a column for Us Weekly. “I stopped using about 1996 when I started burying friends,” she said. “Four died – three from overdoses, one from drunk driving. By then, I had a goal. I loved to sing, and I knew that I was going to make it one day as a singer. Everyone thought I was nuts, but a lot of my friends who are gone now didn’t have anything to believe in, and that’s why they are no longer here. I was lucky; I had a purpose. And in no time, I was being flown to Atlanta to meet with LA Reid, who signed me to LaFace Records.” She added, “Ten years ago, no one could keep up with me. I’m still an angry youth, but I don’t party the way I used to. I want to get ‘domesticated’ tattooed on my forehead. Sometimes, I like to just make it a Blockbuster night.”
