P!nk has been around for more than two decades, banging out hits that have stayed on the charts for months on end.
She’s sold more than 90 million records, won three Grammys, a Brit, an Emmy, a MTV Video Music Award and been named Pop Artist of the Decade by Billboard.
So it should be no surprise that she’s been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
She was joined by her two children and husband Carey Hart during the ceremony in Los Angeles.
The 39-year-old said, according to Billboard: “This is surreal. It has been a trip lately thinking back over the course of this career I’ve somehow managed to have. I signed my first record deal 23 years ago.
“I have achieved exactly what I wanted to achieve.
“Because I always knew what my strong points were. I don’t sell sex, I don’t sell perfume, I’m not the prettiest, I’m not the best. I’m fucking hard-looking and I have enough talent and I work on my fucking craft and I put my head down and I win.
“And I charge and I charge and I charge. And I don’t give up. So when I wasn’t selling records, I was still selling out arenas. I didn’t need to win any popularity contests; I wanted to be a fucking touring artist and I wanted to be great at what I did.

“And at almost 40 years old, I can say I’m great at what I do.”
And while we’re at it, don’t call P!nk old, she’ll shut you down very quickly.
She did so with a Twitter user who said that she looked ‘so old’ that she should be ‘called Purple instead’, whatever that means.
When you’re a millionaire popstar with an armful of awards and a legion of fans across the world, it’s probably quite easy to just ignore the inane comments of idiots online, but it’s also probably more fun to pull them on their words, so that’s what she did.
Responding to the troll she pointed that there are still ‘people left in the world that choose to age naturally’, adding that she’s ‘earned every fucking minute’ of her 39 years.
She went on to tell him/her that she was more than happy to look older in 10 years time, because that means she’ll be alive.
Her responses were flooded with comments from fans calling her inspirational and heaping praise on the singer for growing old naturally; others wrote that growing old is a privilege, while calling her ‘beautiful’.
