Pink’s ‘thanks For Sharing’ Role Marks A Period Of Transition For The Formerly Wild Singer
“I have a really, really shy side, and when I don’t know what I’m doing necessarily, I’m not this scary, aggressive, intimidating person that people think I am. So my biggest challenge is getting out of my own way.” In music, Billboard’s Woman of the Year knows exactly what she’s doing: Touring through December to support her double-platinum album, “The Truth About Love,” which features the hit song (and video) “Blow Me (One Last Kiss).” But with “Thanks for Sharing,” which opens Friday, “it’s not mine and I don’t know how to critique myself,” she said. “I’m trying not to tear myself apart is basically where I’m at. I was relieved when people didn’t rip me to shreds.” Moore said she drew on real emotions for her acting debut “Like what part of this is breaking my heart? That’s where I went with it.” Working with her co-star Josh Gad only sweetened the experience. “He was so funny that once I was with him I didn’t really have a lot of chance to be nervous or freaked out at all because I was just trying not to laugh,” she said. Ultimately, she’s happy she tried acting: “It was like my first skydive: I’m just glad I got it done. I’m glad I did it.” She’d even do it again “if the right thing comes along and I thought it would do some good in the world, then yeah. Maybe.” Pink is set to wrap her tour in Montreal on Dec. 3. (On the Pink/Alecia Moore distinction, she said: “Pink is what people call me referring to music… Outside of that, I’m Alecia or mom.”) She’ll accept the Billboard honors the following week. “To get that nod and say, `We see you,’ makes me feel really happy,” she said.

A little more about a pink salmons life history: A pink salmon migrates to saltwater shortly after it emerges from the gravel as a fry salmon. They quickly make their way through Puget Sound to ocean waters. They live only two years, returning to spawn in odd-numbered years. By comparison, the four other species of Pacific Northwest native salmon chinook, coho, sockeye and chum live three years or more in fresh and salt water. So pink salmon live the simplest of lives less time exposed to pollution, predators and harvesters. And they eat pretty low on the food chain. Their diets consist of things like zooplankton and small, abundant marine crustaceans, said tribal salmon-enhancement manager Bill St. Jean. So while marine scientists puzzle about why the more prized salmon such as coho and chinook experience disturbingly low survival rates in Puget Sound, the pink salmon seem to be growing in abundance and geographic reach. Their ocean survival has been phenomenal, but their simple life history may be playing a role in the increase, Nisqually tribal natural resources manager David Troutt said. Meanwhile the more complex species in Puget Sound are struggling. Its a potential indicator that Puget Sound is becoming a simpler ecosystem, which should be a source of concern. While Nisqually sport and tribal fishers are taking a small share of the large pink run, the vast majority of the fish are being passed upstream to spawn. A tribal fish weir was installed in the river primarily to sort through chinook salmon to keep hatchery chinook from swimming upstream to interfere with naturally spawning chinook. But it has been dominated by pink salmon the past two weeks.
