P!nk is all about empowering other artists! Amidst the promotions of her new album, she spoke about young artists like Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish and SZA who are changing the game. P!nk also spoke at length about how she created a space for herself in the music industry, which is why she has immense respect for younger female artists who are doing the same.
“I put my head down, I perfect my craft, I stay out of everybody else’s lane and I stay in my line. And now I own that lane, that’s my lane,” P!nk said. “For other people: It’s like, don’t worry about if your song is going to fit into radio format — I guess for other singers.”
She added, “It’s like, just find the thing about that is you. It’s like Dr. Seuss: No one else can be you-er than you. Do you. Do you ‘cause no one else can do that. And craft real songs that people aren’t gonna forget.”
“I think that’s what Olivia Rodrigo is doing,” P!nk said. She further revealed that her 11-year old is a big fan and continued, “That’s why I love that Willow loves her so much … She’s writing her own songs, she’s so good at it, she’s fronting an almost all-female band, she’s singing her a– off. She was like what, 17, 18, writing those songs? I’m so proud of the girls out. There’s so many bada– girls out there that are changing the game. Billie Eilish, SZA — changing the game and I love it. I’m here for it.”
P!nk released her ninth studio album ‘Trustfall’ this month.
