Rock star singer Pink (real name Alicia Moore) has had her series of ups and downs.  Earlier this year Pink separated from her husband Carey Hart after 3 years of marriage and now she’s talking about her battle with the bottle.

“A few months ago, I went to see a specialist because I thought I was an alcoholic. I have a problem with my vices. I’ve kicked the drugs, but every now and then I have to go out and get completely wasted on alcohol. For me it’s about losing control. I’m such a control freak it’s very hard for me to lose my inhibitions without something chemical inside me. How do you really have fun if there isn’t a little drink in you? I don’t actually know.”

Pink continued to say that she got some help and now she’s not so sure if she has a problem with drinking or not.

“I checked into Canyon Ranch in Tucson, Arizona, in the summer and I went to see a therapist, telling him I was an alcoholic. He asked me when I’d had my last drink and I couldn’t remember – it had been a few weeks previously. I then read the AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) manual cover to cover and we talked. I realised I wasn’t an alcoholic, just someone who likes to get drunk every now and again. I’m trying to work out if that’s a bad thing.”

There aren’t a lot of pictures with Pink getting drunk in public.  Perhaps that’s because she doesn’t have a huge paparazzi crowd waiting for her all the time.  What do you think?
