While Pink’s first album, Can’t Take Me Home , was a commercial success, it didn’t quite kill the buzz surrounding her as an artist. Pink had been compared to Christina Aguilera for quite some time before and during the release of Pink’s second studio album. Her sophomore effort titled Missundaztood was released in November 2001. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and became Pink’s first Platinum-selling record in the United States. Missundaztood received generally positive reviews from music critics, most of whom praised Pink’s songwriting and her strong musical compositions. Some referred to Pink as “the Artist Formerly Known as Pink” due to the noticeable musical maturity and lyrical depth Pink showed in Missundaztood . Pink’s music video for her first single “Get the Party Started” featured Pink in a nightclub, where she takes part of a drinking binge, while flipping through channels on the TV to see how other people let loose. MTV censored the video because they thought Pink was promoting underage drinking. Pink received several awards for her musical work, including a Grammy Award in 2003 for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance ( “Get the Party Started”) and a MTV Video Music Award in 2002 (“Don’t Let Me Get Me”), as well as a selection of nominations. Pink was honored by being chosen to perform one of four songs during the NBC’s special “The Concert for World Children’s Day”, which was hosted by Whoopi Goldberg and other musical artists. Pink performed a song she had written and composed, called “I’ve Told You Once.”
