She's Ba-aaack!

Admittedly, I wasn't too much of a Pink (P!nk?) fan until her last album, I'm Not Dead. But anytime a broad is on the brink of career flatlining and then works with Max Martin, I'm on board.

Which is why it's classy that Pink had Max produce and co-write her upcoming single "So What" (on iTunes August 18). The video will premiere on FNMTV August 22.

Meanwhile, this is the lead single off her fifth album. Fifth album! Five albums in eight years is a lot these days, isn't it? Well, unless you count vixens like Miley Cyrus, who crank records out like they're turning tricks on a Saturday night.

But how many albums has Whitney Houston put out in eight years? Yeah, one. And you don't see Max Martin returning Whitney's phone calls, now, do you?

Pink's as-yet-untitled album is due October 28.

    I love that Pink CD- in fact, I bought the special edition this week. I have a Pink post in draft now, but look for it. I am sure it will change your life.

    All in all, and taking a look at all your postings from like about the past three months: aren't we by now officially back and safe in pop heaven again?
    Isn't it like 1998 all over again in music?
    We have Rihanna, we have Chris Brown, Max Martin is putting tracks out of his studio like hot cakes once again, he even pairs with Cathy Dennis (thank you, Katy Perry - happy 6th week, are you going for a 7th tomorrow?), and all the new Swedish-school hit-song powerhouses keep spitting marvelous tracks for the Kylies, Leonas, Natashas, Jordins and alikes of the world to swamp charts everywhere, singers who all wait in line at those recording studios' doors begging for a session, and just can't get enough of sticking to an infectious pop groove to make a splash. (and let's not even got to NKTOB, ok?)
    Isn't there a God after all?

    Man, this is sure starting to feel like the promised land. Pink won't forsake us. As long as we don't go back to a place where Michael Bolton and Celine Dion dirges play on Top 40 radio, I'm all about turning back the clock!

    XO, I'm sure I'll be tickled Pink by it.

    Cristian, it does seem to be leaning that way. 2008 has definitely been the best year in a long time for good old-fashioned pop.

    John, a dark secret of mine is that I actually like Michael Bolton's "Said I Loved You But I Lied." Class.
