P!nk Opens Up On "Tripping On Acid" At 12 Years Old

P!nk has shared details about her romantic involvement with fellow singer-songwriter Linda Perry.

When P!nk, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore Hart, was only 12 years old, she adored "Drifting," a song by 4 Non Blondes that was written and performed by Linda Perry, the band's lead vocalist, and primary songwriter, in 1992.

Nonetheless, P!nk's admiration for Perry became significantly more intricate when the "Just Give Me A Reason" artist collaborated with the songwriter.

The 43-year-old said: "I used to trip on acid at 12 and 13 years old and sing out of the attic 'Drifting' [one of Perry's songs] at the top of my lungs until the cops were called because her voice, I could feel myself in her and it was the first time I could feel that outside of Janis Joplin."

"And when you find that in someone, that's why people become fans, and crazy fans because that person knows their pain and you have to tell them that, and I had to tell Linda that, and that's why I went and found her and I wouldn't give up."

However, the dynamic between P!nk and Perry became more complicated when Perry went on to collaborate "with everyone else." P!nk acknowledged feeling "betrayed."

She continued: "Because then she became the pop hit maker. And I thought what we had was special. And everyone was like, 'Why the f**k are you looking for Linda Perry' and I was like, 'You don't understand, that woman saved my life'.

"She's so talented and she went on to be all these things and that was the part that hurt, it had nothing to do with Christina, it had to do with all of it."

P!nk mentioned Christina Aguilera in connection to Perry's decision to select the "Lady Marmalade" vocalist to sing "Beautiful," a song written by Perry.

Undoubtedly, "Beautiful," which appeared on Aguilera's fourth studio album, "Stripped," is now widely regarded as one of the singer's most iconic songs and remained on Billboard's Hot 100 chart for an impressive 27 weeks.

However, P!nk resolved: "The great thing about Linda is she will pull perfection out of you. She did that with Christina."

"Christina sounded incredible on that song because Linda will tell you, 'F**k your stupid vibrato'. That's what she used to say to me all the time. I sang Phantom Of The Opera and Les Misérables."

"That song ['Beautiful'] ended up where is was supposed to be."
