In light of this morning’s news that Christina Aguilera was arrested for being too drunk to function, singer Pink took to her Twitter account and typed out the following message: “Out of Myself, Britney, and Christina- didn’t everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker? LOOK MA!!! No CUFFS!!!”
Pink has a decent point: People have been giving her shit since day one. Granted, “troubled and erratic” has always been the image she’s gone for, but she’s definitely not sitting in a jail cell this morning and I doubt she’s going to get that kid she’s pregnant with taken away. Hmm.
On the other hand, Pink was slightly older than Christina and Britney by the time she’d made it big and already had a full past of rabble-rousing before she even landed on our radar. Maybe her story wouldn’t be much different if she’d been thrust into the spotlight as early as Brit and X-Tina were.
I guess one thing we can take from this is that things are rarely as they seem in Hollywood.
Anyway, let’s discuss this. Why do you think it is someone like Pink, whose public image is similar to that of a rabid animal, has been able to stay out of jail while our former pop princesses keep finding themselves in such unfortunate circumstances?
