(LOS ANGELES) -- Pink’s been a star since the year 2000, but if things had gone a bit differently, she may not have even lived to see the turn of the millennium.
In the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, Pink is asked why she wanted to play a sex addict in the upcoming movie Thanks for Sharing. She replies, “Because I understand addiction. I was a hardcore partyer from 12 to 15.”
She goes on to say how she was “on all the club drugs,” and “selling Ecstasy and crystal meth and Special K.”
Finally, though, she got a major wake-up call that made her change her life.
“I overdosed in ’95,” she tells EW. “And then I never took drugs again, ever.”
Now Pink says she sticks to safer addictions, like shoes, and buying clothes for her daughter, Willow.
“I’m in so much trouble with [my husband] Carey for the s**t I buy for her,” she tells EW. “Because a one-year-old shouldn’t have Diesel jeans. But it tends to slip my mind when I see them because they’re so cute.”
Pink says she’ll stop buying Willow designer clothes when “she’s old enough to know they’re Diesel jeans.” But until then, she laughs, “She’s going to look f**kin’ awesome.”
