Description

US PUB Date: July 11, 2023

Pink: Raise Your Glass is a celebration of one of pop’s longest reigning rebels. Beautifully illustrated with essential images, this book is a fitting tribute to an undeniably, remarkable pop artist.

Pink is one of the most trailblazing artists of our time. Her breakthrough album, Missundaztood, was released to critical acclaim in 2001 and showcased her unique, powerhouse pop vocals, as well as her rebellious style. In the two decades since, she has remained firmly in pop’s upper echelons, despite her refusal to conform.

She consistently out-sings her contemporaries with hit songs such as, “Get the Party Started,” “Just Like a Pill,” “So What,” “What About Us,” and “Beautiful Trauma,” while her willingness to speak frankly about difficult topics has made her a relatable role model. She is an outspoken animal rights activist, and has been vocal about women’s rights, LGBT rights, and her support of same-sex marriage.

Away from the studio, Pink’s live shows are nothing short of phenomenal; her jaw-dropping acrobatics mark her out as a truly spectacular performer.

Loved by fans and revered by the music industry, Pink continues to enjoy global success and substantial airplay. Her accolades are numerous and include, three Grammys, a Daytime Emmy Award, and seven MTV Video Music Awards―the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award among them. In 2019, she was honoured with the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award at the Brit Awards, and in 2021 she accepted the Icon Award at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards.

“There is power in believing in yourself. You may not be the best that ever did it, you may not be the prettiest, or the tallest, or the funniest, or the most talented — if you’re stubborn and you don’t give up and you work really hard — no one else can ever be you.”—Pink

I didn’t know much about Pink (Alecia Beth Moore), but I love biographies, so I was intrigued when I saw this ARC on NetGalley. I’m so glad I requested and was approved for an early review.
The biography is journalistic/research style based on published stories and a new interview. The book is packed with photos of her performances over the years.
I walked away with a huge appreciation for Pink’s talent, artistry, determination and straight forwardness.
For over 20 years, Pink has entertained fans, and Pink: Raise Your Glass takes readers through those years and more.
We learn about her young life and family, her career and passions, and her family today. And every step of the way we see her music develop. There’s a reason she won Billboard’s Icon award in 2021.
I thoroughly enjoyed Pink: Raise Your Glass.

Thank you, NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of the book.

I’m a huge fan of Pink, her music tells a story and her life story is just as fascinating! Well done Annie Zaleski for this amazing book.
I love Pink’s rise to fame, her emotions are always on display and she owns it!
The family growth mixed with the evolution of the songwriting is admirable and inspiring.
Pink is a strong feisty woman who loves fiercely and, with the support of those around her, lives a full life!

Pink Raise Your Glass is a fun visual biography of Pink. Lots of colorful pictures and tidbits of information. You can literally see the evolution of her just with the pictures. Really fun to watch. I think this is best enjoyed in a physical format. I had on my phone as while I enjoyed it, I think that it was lacking. Not to mention it would look great on a shelf. Author did her research on Pink and I learned lots of facts I didn't know before. Like she was previously in a girl group and thinks she was kicked out because she wasn't black. Book is a wealth of knowledge about her albums and family too. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Now I want to go to a concert now. Great book, definitely recommend.

I can tell you that the moment I opened this book I had Pink songs filling my head and they have persisted all day long. I can already tell they will still be playing when I try to fall asleep 🎶

This book contains a run through from the beginning of her career to now, with plenty of photos, quotes and information.

My favourite thing is how the pink of the book perfectly matches her pink hair 🩷

A great book for P!nk fans!

I remember jamming out to songs written and performed by Pink and knew early on that she was an artist to be reckoned with. Her start was not as easy as she hoped though but it did not take long before she was singing number one songs which some are still popular 20 years after their release. This book does not get into the intimate side of pink but allows the reader to focus on her accolades.This book is an amazing story about the awards and emmys that she has won during her reign as the best pop artist ever….….ok that was my statement not anyone’s in the book. Pink did however overcome obstacles and trials to get to the top. If you are a Pink fan this is for you.


5 out of 5 stars

How can any book about Pink not be a 5 star read when it includes bright and colorful, professional photographs, highlights intimate details, shares interesting information, and is offered on NetGalley by the publisher, Palazzo Editions, and author Annie Zaleski.

Pink's new book will be out on July 11, 2023 so get ready for it! It includes personal deets about her crushes and inspirations, including Billy Joel to Bon Jovi to NKOTB (who are back on tour this summer). I found it fascinating that Pink knew since childhood that she would be someone really famous someday. The details about her love of music wasn't surprising as well as her view about her sharing her own non-conformance due to not fitting into a square peg when you're many different shapes and sizes.

The details about her love of music wasn't surprising, as well as her view about her own non-conformance due to not fitting into a square peg when you're many different shapes and sizes. Personally, I love her solo music, as much as her duets. Her voice is so resonant and clear and joyful. If you haven't listened to her song/duet with her daughter Willow...."Cover Me in Sunshine"...you absolutely should. Delightful.

Pink has a huge heart as an animal rights advocate to LGBTQ rights, and acceptance of differences of all kinds. She is a strong woman, advocate, loving mother, legendary singer and performer, and she's a winemaker!! I'm really jealous about the winemaking part - lol. I can't wait to see her in concert and hope it's this summer. Let's raise your glass to that!

Here's a quote of her's: "There is no demographic for me. It's young, old, moms, daughters, every color of the rainbow, from every part of life. Everyone can relate to me. It's cool." And so is Pink.

Pink - Raise Your Glass is a comprehensive biography of superstar powerhouse performer Pink, from her troubled childhood and teen years to the megastar she is now.

Much of the content is referenced from interviews and articles Pink has given throughout her lengthy career, and it explores both the highs and lows of the journey. Her genre-defying style has led her to working with some of the greats within the music industry and her acumen has ensured she has remained ahead of the trends.

Each chapter is an analysis of her albums and the singles she has released from each. There is discussion about the controversies surrounding particular tracks and reflections from Pink herself as to how she could have approached things with the benefit of hindsight. The later section of the book explores Pink's relationships off the stage, her family life, and her collaborations.

This is an attractively presented book filled with glossy photos of her performances, media appearances and behind-the-scenes stills that will look stunning as a hardcover coffee table book. This is a celebration of a phenomenal career - and an incredible life.

A must for Pink fans.

Pink is one of my all time favourite artists, so I was delighted to get the opportunity to review this book, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The author takes us from her very beginning in the music industry, right the way through to now.
The book is filled with fabulous pictures and talks about what was happening in her life, including how each album came along and who she collaborated with.
Dotted throughout the book are some great quotes that are either by Pink or about her by other people.
This is a great book and I would highly recommend it to any Pink fans.
My thanks to the author, the publisher and to NetGalley for allowing me to read this book. I am leaving this review of my own volition.
