Wait, wait, wait.... Pink is still around? I guess this shows my complete and utter lack of interest in the radio.

Pink is massive in Australia, she did something like 59 shows here on her last tour. I don't understand the attraction.

When I went to the Syndey shows, I asked some Aussies for an explanation regarding Pink's popularity in the Land Down Under.

They simply replied "Who's going to all these concerts?"

I met some Toriphiles who knew people who went to every show

I don't know enough about her fan base to comment on the leaving your roots or fans falling off issues. But they are ones that every musician and artist comes across at some point, I think. Plus, I don't understand how reaching #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 would constitute "What The Hell" as not catching on. I actually hear it all the time on my local Top 40 station (which is in a pretty large market).

Considering that, I'd imagine overall album sales are the reason for the world tour not coming through. I think I did read somewhere that her album was selling lower than expected. If everyone's just downloading the single and not getting the album, stuff like that can be expected.

Recently I was in a record shop and the clerk was playing a Pink greatest hits. I thought 'Dag! Pink actually strung together a pretty decent run of pop songs.' I'd say she has one of the best pop careers of the last decade, possibly only second to Beyonce.

She gets a lot of hate around here, but she's been a good pop act for the last however many years. I thought both Try This and I'm Not Dead were really solid pop albums. I'm not crazy about her latest one, but that Raise Your Glass song on her new hits album is some darned fine pop.

I only give her crap because I don't know who the hell she's become over the last three or so years. And the newest material she's offering is just all kinds of a shit sandwich.
