Pink fans have a lot to get excited about in the coming months. There’s her brand-new single “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” currently climbing the charts, her Video Music Awards performance on Thursday, September 6, and now her “VH1 Storytellers” session, which will air November 13.Pink explains why performing at the VMAs is “extra special” for her!
MTV News was lucky enough to be in the audience for Pink’s “Storytellers” taping Monday, and we’re very excited to share with you a few reasons why you should make sure to set your DVR to record her amazing set:
By the time the “Storytellers” session rolls around, Pink’s highly anticipated new album, The Truth About Love, will have been released (it drops September 18), so the songs from the album won’t be brand-new, but her performances will be! Keep your ears tuned in for unforgettable renditions of “Just Give Me a Reason,” “True Love” and “How Come You’re Not Here.”
As we get closer and closer to her album-release date, Pink has started to reveal more details about some special guests we can look forward to. And what better way to make your “Storytellers” session memorable than by inviting those special guests to perform with you (and later tweeting about it)? Get excited to see and hear the vocal stylings of Lily Allen, Nate Ruess of fun. and Butch Walker. Their talents as individual performers are noteworthy in and of themselves, but when combined with Pink on the “Storytellers” stage, they made for three magical musical moments to remember.
They don’t call the show “Storytellers” for nothin’. Pink held nothing back with her vivid descriptions of how each and every one of her selected songs like “So What,” “Sober,” “Dear Mr. President” and “Family Portrait” came to be. No topic was off-limits or taboo. At one point during the session, Pink asked the show’s producer if she was going too far with her behind-the-music-style storytelling. “Is this too dark for VH1?” she asked. “You told me to be honest!” And she was. There were laughs, chills, thrills and only a few tears.
