PINK had always loved her name; but after the birth of her daughter, Willow Sage Hart (proud dad is PINK's hubby Carey Hart, a motocross racer), she decided a change was warranted.
"It's been nothing but pink baby outfits, pink cards, and pink flowers since my daughter was born," she's reported. And she's also grown tired of old sayings like pretty in pink, think pink, etc. You get the idea. Finally, when she had had enough, she called a halt to all things pink, saying, "Oy! Time for a change."
She was thinking of taking the name BLUE but figured if she ever had a son in the future, she'd be back once again to a color-saturation issue. Y'know, blue, blue, and more blue. Green seemed like a good way to avoid the blues.
The name change wasn't made lightly. Before implementing her decision, she checked with two old friends. Kermit the Frog advised her not to do it. "It isn't easy being green," he cautioned. On the other hand, Green Lantern had the opposite advice. "Go for it," he said.
Chatting with a reporter, GREEN, the artist formerly known as PINK, confided, "Green is the new pink; I just love my new name," Then with a laugh, she ended the conversation with the title of her first single: "There You Go."
