On This Day in Pink History… 22nd January 2004, God is a DJ music video debuted

The music video for this song features scenes of Pink and others (assumed to be her roommates) getting dressed, having fun on a subway, and going to a nightclub. Pink then continues to bribe the bouncer (dressed in eccentric drag clothing) to enter the nightclub ahead of the queue.

On This Day in Pink History… 7th January 2006, Pink and Carey got married

On This Day in Pink History… 7th January 2006, Pink and Carey got married

Popping the question usually conjures up images of a starry-eyed groom on bended knee against some romantic backdrop. But rebellious pop star Pink’s proposal was fittingly unconventional: the bride-to-be flagged down her motocross champion beau Carey Hart during a bike race by holding up a board that said: “Will you marry me?”. As Carey revved up for a second lap, she held up a second one which simply read: “I’m serious!”.

So when the singer tied the knot last weekend at an intimate beachside ceremony in Costa Rica, the most surprising aspect, perhaps, was just how traditionally romantic the unconventional pair could be.

Having said she planned on “being a girl and wearing a dress” on her special day, the Lady Marmalade vocalist, whose real name is Alecia Moore, was transformed from punk princess to emotional bride for the sunset service, held on the shores of the Four Seasons Resort. “We just love the beach, so we wanted it here,” she told People magazine.

Radiant in a champagne halter-neck gown, complete with fairytale tiered skirt tied with a sash at the waist, the bride made sure she included some individual twists, too, from her barefoot stroll down the aisle to Billy Joel’s She’s Always A Woman, to her platinum blonde hairstyle with bright pink highlights.

More than 100 guests, including singer Lisa Marie Presley, witnessed the nuptials, in which the bride and groom, who began dating in 2001, read heartfelt vows they’d written themselves. According to one report, a teary-eyed Pink told her husband: “I love you because I let you hold my heart and you haven’t broken it.”

“I wanted to see how creative Carey could be, and he’s always so cute when he’s nervous,” the bride explained in the wedding programme. “No, the real reason [we wrote our own vows] is: I didn’t think anyone else’s words could ever have possibly described how far we’ve come or how much we love each other. And I always like to say it my way.”

Carey, meanwhile, had a somewhat cheekier explanation: “Because I didn’t think any vows had been written that would describe how hot her ass is. Just kidding (not really).

“To listen to Alecia express her love for me and us will be heaven to my ears. And, it isn’t everyday that I get to express how I feel about her in a surrounding with all of our closest family and friends,” he concluded.

The couple swapped rings which had been made by close friend Stephen Webster; Pink and Carey had asked him to come up with a “cool and different” design that was “our kind of beautiful”. The result? Rings that say “til death” in platinum and diamonds.

Known for his daredevil motorcycle stunts, the 30-year-old groom, who, like Pink, has a tattoo which reads “Tru Luv”, is no less adventurous when it comes to showing his marital devotion: “Once we get married, I’m going to tattoo her name down my ring finger,” he promised.

For now, the couple are reportedly heading off with their four dogs on a snowboarding honeymoon. But for Carey, at least, that’s just the icing on the cake. “I’m so excited to be married to her,” he said in the run up to the wedding, “I don’t even care about the honeymoon!”

There you go was Pink’s debut single from her debut album Can’t Take Me Home. It was co-written by Pink, Kevin “She’kspere” Briggs and Kandi Burruss. 

The song got many positive reviews and was compare to tracks from Destiny’s Child (Bills Bills Bills) and TLC (No Scrubs). It was described by MTV Asia as having an edgy cut that has all that it takes to top the charts. Rolling Stone commented: “Her debut has one awesome single in ‘There You Go’, whose wronged-woman sass is set to a stop-start groove so bling-bling it redeems a chorus that ends, ‘Sometimes it be’s like that.'”

Music Video

The music video was the first of many to be directed by Dave Meyers. It debuted in late November 1999. 

In the music video , Pink’s ex-boyfriend Mikey calls her asking for a ride, and she reluctantly agrees to give him one. Pink hops on a motorcycle and rides to the top of a parking structure overlooking her ex’s apartment, where she calls him on her cell. She then accelerates her motorcycle, jumps off at the last second, and watches as it soars off the building and crashes into his apartment window before exploding into flames, burning the armchair and the PlayStation (which Mikey was playing on earlier in the video). Pink then jumps into a car driven by a new guy, giving her ex the middle finger as they drive off.
