Who knew Alicia Beth Moore, otherwise known as Pink, used drugs from the age of twelve to age fifteen.

The singer, songwriter, entertainer, and up and coming actress, did not just experiment with drugs and alcohol, she was a self-proclaimed, hard-core party girl.

During her three year period of drugs and partying, Pink not only managed to consume all types of party drugs, she also distributed Special K, Crystal Methamphetamine, and Ecstasy.

The 32 year old will appear as a sex addict in the film, “Thanks For Sharing”.

Thanks For Sharing, directed by Stuart Blumberg, and starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo, chronicles the lives three sex addicts, who utilize a twelve step program to manage their addiction. It has been classified as a dramedy, as it is a combination of comedy and drama.

Recently, when Entertainment Weekly interviewed, the wife and new mother, of a now one year old daughter, named Willow, Pink stated that she wanted to play the role of a sex addict in Thanks For Sharing because she knows what it is like to be an addict.

In fact, as stated earlier, Pink heavily used drugs for approximately three years, and actually overdosed in 1995.

Pink stated that the overdose was a wake-up call for her to put drugs behind her.

Today, not only is Pink clean, having not used drugs since her overdose, she is set to release her sixth studio album, The Truth About Love.

The first single from the album, Blow Me [One Last Kiss] was released July 9, 2012.

Additionally, the busy mogul in the making was recently selected as the new face of CoverGirl Cosmetics.
