Pink: Billy Joel Is Too Talented To Work With

By Aaron

Billy Joel is basically Pink's idol, so she was stoked when she got him to agree to write a song with her earlier this year. Despite all of her excitement though, their first attempt was a disaster, and Pink totally blames herself.


"The problem is he's too good for me. I clammed up. But we're gonna keep trying. He goes, 'Do me a favor: Go home, pick out the best poem you've ever written and send it to me, and I'll make you a song.' I got home and was like, 'All my poems are the worst pieces of trash I've ever seen in my life.'" 

Pink adds, quote, "Billy Joel is, in my opinion, one of the best songwriters that's ever lived. I walked down the aisle to 'She's Always a Woman'. I grew up listening to him with my dad. He was the first concert I ever went to at 2 years old." 

Speaking of collaborations, Pink hit the stage with GUNS N' ROSES in Madison Square Garden Wednesday night to sing "Patience" with AXL. Watch the video below. Pink comes out at 4:28:
