23: ‘The Only Exception’ by Paramore

Pink didn’t want to fall in love. Pink didn’t believe in love. She knew, it never lasted after observing, what happened to her parents.

She saw Distortion, her father, cry and curse at the wind when she visited him. She never told Dixie, her mother, about these visits. Judging from how Dixie talked about Distortion, Pink knew, she neither would like nor understand, why Pink would want to.

Distortion was heartbroken and knew full well that it was his fault, Dixie had left. But he tried to reassemble his heart as best he could.

Dixie swore she would never let herself forget how he treated her and how that made her feel.

So Pink learned to live alone and swore off love because getting it wasn’t worth the risk of losing it.

Brad turned out to the exception. When he asked her out, they had known each other forever and she could trust to still be there the next day. She still knew, it wouldn’t last, but she simply couldn’t let go of him.

And she was on her way to believing in love.

20: ‘Not Ready To Make Nice’ by Dixie Chicks

Pink’s mother, Dixie, is a singer.

Distortion’s hopping in and out of prison took a toll on her. She chose to love a criminal and now she was paying and would be paying for it forever. They fought a lot over this via letter. He wanted her to get over her hang-ups about his imprisonment because it was never going to change. So she left.

Time was supposed to heal Dixie, but it failed. Pink grew up not actually knowing her father. But Pink loved him so much, that Dixie had to explain her, that she shouldn’t – in fact she ought to hate him. That didn’t exactly make the healing easier.

After Pink dies, Distortion reaches out to Dixie, asking her to forgive and forget.

Forgiveness sounds good. That she could do. Forgetting, however… That she can’t do. She’s still mad as hell and not ready to make it right between them.

And she’ll keep fighting Them and she won’t shut up about what she knows. She has already paid for her silence with her daughter. That too is a price, she’ll keep paying, but now she won’t back down – even at the threat of her own life and even if he thinks, she should.

9: ‘Prison Bound’ by Social Distortion

Pink’s father, Distortion, is going back to prison. He has been in and out of it many times and fully expects to go back there, once he gets out again. He gives word to Pink to inform her of his sentence and tell her, he’ll be out again one day, purposely not specifying when.

The system, personified in a prison guard named Johnny, keeps telling him, that Distortion’s time here will reform him, but Distortion knows better. Whichever lesson they’re trying to teach him will probably never catch on.

The prison lies on the outskirts of town and the railroad goes straight by. Distortion shares a cell with three other men. It’s cold and clammy, but he understands he has to do his time.

8: ‘Formation’ by Beyonce

Pink is a famous, black dancer. This gets a lot of attention, from the paparazzi too. The paparazzi say, she’s Illuminati, but she doesn’t care.

She likes everything about her appearance.

Hitting Steven was just what she needed. She feels strong and confident. She leaves Grey Eyes and gets back with The Old Flame. They live on her money.

Her father is from Alabama. Her mother is from Louisiana.

She leads a dance crew and she believes her fame could lead to other black people getting further in the world.
