Pink: 'Dance music trend does my head in'

By
Pink has admitted that she is not a fan of the current trend for pop artists to release dance tracks.

The singer insisted that she didn't consider experimenting with the genre on new album The Truth About Love.

"There's this whole techno takeover going on right now that just does my head in," Pink told Billboard.

"I knew I didn't want to do that. I'd rather dance around and sing goofy songs."

Speaking of the fact that it took longer to find success with her singles in the US than elsewhere, she explained that it gave her time to "hone... [her] craft" as she toured the globe.

"I was always on the road in the UK and Australia, and things were really great over there. Then I got to come home and be left alone," she said.

"It gave me lot of time to create my show and to become a performer. I would go on 22-month tours and work my ass off, and it's been the biggest blessing of my life that now I am a touring artist.

"It got me out of the popularity contest that music can be sometimes and gave me time to hone my craft as a stage performer. I'm also grateful... I got to come back and do the Grammys [in 2010]. That was my 'A-ha'."
