And I don't know about you, but I miss the acrobatics-loving, badass pop star in my life.
So when we caught up with the "Try" singer at the BMI Pop Awards, where she was honored with the President’s Award for her career in songwriting, we had to ask what is going on with her seventh album.
"I don't know what I'm doing," she said. "I'm doing stuff, but I don't know what it is."
Pink, who has a 3-year-old daughter, Willow, with husband Carey Hart, went on to say she hasn't changed much as an artist over the past couple years, but she has "changed as a pre-school mom" -- "I volunteer a lot. That's fun" -- and has become inspired by one particular woman.
"I'm super inspired by Martha Stewart," she said. "Dude, I'm all over the place. I'm writing songs, riding horses, making bake sale cookies. I'm kind of all over the place."
As fans of Pink know, she hasn't been totally absent from the music scene. Using her real name, Alecia Moore, the singer teamed up with singer/songwriter Dallas Green to create the duo, You+Me, and released an album of down-tempo folk-pop.
"I don't think it's a new side of me if you have listened to my albums. If you're listening to singles, then it's definitely 'Woah,'" Pink said of the project with Dallas. "But I've always been an acoustic person. My dad and I did one of his songs a couple records ago. There's always an acoustic section of my shows. I live for that. I live for Dallas. That was a fun record to make. I'm just a mixed bag of emotions."
When it's time to release her next solo project, she will do it under the name Pink, not Alecia, and is hoping to secure a very special dream collaboration.
"I've worked with so many rad people, but I'm still holding out for Lauryn Hill someday," she said. "I mean holding out, not very hopeful, just holding out."
