Pop star Pink has never been afraid to break boundaries – and her brave approach has certainly paid off with worldwide success.
She has sold a staggering 16milllion record sales in the US, but the iconic singer has achieved even greater stardom away from her home country.
Pink, 41, has sold 40million albums and 50million singles worldwide during a stellar career.
And while her bank balance has obviously swelled, the popular hitmaker has been a big supporter of worthwhile charities, has been keen to champion confidence in women and also fights passionately for animal rights.
Here at Daily Star we take a look at the star’s successful 27-year career.

Pink started performing in Philadelphia clubs since she was 14, taking her nickname – aptly – from the character Mr Pink in Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino’s hit movie Reservoir Dogs.
She then auditioned, successfully, for the girl group Basic Instinct, but aged 16 instead opted to join the girl group Choice before she found super-stardom.
She starred alongside two other teenage girls Sharon Flanagan and Chrissy Conway, before LaFace Records quickly snapped up the singer-songwriter when they realised the huge potential she had.

'I hope fur-wearers get bitten in the a**!' Pink poses NAKED for PETA campaign
Not shy of some provocative and eclectic outfits, Pink famously posed nude on the front cover of Australia’s Who Magazine in June 2014.
The hitmaker flaunted her impressive array of body art as the sexy cover girl for the magazine’s Body Issue.
The trademark short-haired beauty, who sports blonde tresses with shaved sides, looked more than comfortable posing in the buff for the shoot, laughing at something off-camera in the simple yet stunning pose.
The singer stressed she wanted her young daughters to grow up with a positive body attitude and said they should be taught more about competing and being stronger in their activities and pursuits rather than worrying about what size they were.
“I'm a person who could always lose a couple here and there, but I would rather be strong than bony,” she told the magazine at the time.
