Pink is opening up about her experience with drug use, including an overdose that happened before her music career took off.
“I was on ecstasy, angel dust, crystal, all kinds of things,” Pink admitted on 60 Minutes. “And then I was out. Done. Too Much,”
“I had a chip on my shoulder. Basically, I grew up in a house where every day, my parents were screaming at each other, throwing things. They hated each other. And then I got into drugs. I was selling drugs. And then I was kicked out of the house. I dropped out of high school. I was off the rails.”
Pink also recounted aggressive interactions with her mother, with one resulting in her mother falling down a flight of steps.
She says that her life changed when a DJ offered her a chance to perform.
“‘Come back tomorrow,'” Pink said they told her. “‘I’ll give you a guest spotlight. But you can never touch drugs again.'”
