Pink: All I Know So Far – Film Review

Pink: All I Know So Far

I love pop music, pop documentaries and basically any form of behind-the-scenes footage so Pink: All I Know So Far, her upcoming concert doc, is very much up my street.

The documentary, directed by The Greatest Showman’s Michael Gracey, follows Pink, real name Alecia Moore, as she embarks on the European leg of the Beautiful Trauma World Tour with her husband Carey Hart and young children Willow and Jameson in tow. In particular, the documentary focuses on the 20 days between the European Tour opener in Amsterdam in June 2019 and her concert at London’s Wembley Stadium, after which Willow and Carey flew home for a 12-day break.

This film feels different from other concert documentaries like Katy Perry‘s Part of Me – the gold standard – and pop star documentaries like Taylor Swift‘s Miss Americana and Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry because its primary focus is on Pink as a mum and how she balances being a performer responsible for hundreds of jobs on the tour and putting on a high-energy entertaining show every night and looking after Willow and Jameson – who were eight and two, respectively, at the time of filming. Both roles are equally demanding and exhausting and hats off to her for managing to have the stamina and energy to do it all.

The film is comprised of concert footage from that tour, although you don’t get many songs the full way through, as well as footage of Pink rehearsing, sightseeing with her family, and looking after the kids back at the hotel. She offers up some interesting insights but there are no big revelations or super candid chats. It also contains surprisingly little of her backstory and history up until that point and chooses to focus on the present of that tour.

This is unlikely to appeal to anyone who is not already a fan of Pink. As a huge fan of her music, I sang along to the concert footage and loved watching her dance and do her insane aerial gymnastics (how can she sing at the same time?!) and immediately wanted to go and listen to her back catalogue.

All in all, Pink: All I Know So Far is an endearing and entertaining film, even if it isn’t particularly deep and revealing.

On Amazon Prime Video from Friday 21st May

Rating: 3 out of 5.

& Juliet: Theatre Review

I don’t write theatre reviews for everything I see but I felt compelled to write one about & Juliet because a new, original West End musical doesn’t open very often and because I want to urge you all to see it too.

Katy Perry needs to stop talking about the Taylor Swift feud now

I love a juicy celebrity feud as much as anybody and the Taylor Swift vs Katy Perry one was the perfect example of the tabloid fodder I love. That changed this weekend when Katy spoke about it AGAIN. She cannot stop talking about it and that has made it less exciting and I am over it.

I take back what I said about Camila Cabello’s solo career

When Camila Cabello announced she was leaving Fifth Harmony in December, I wrote a post in which I said she basically made a mistake and left the group way too soon, because they weren’t big enough yet and she should have stuck with them for a bit longer as it would have been a better launchpad for her solo career. Turns out I was wrong and her solo stuff is amazing.

Met Gala 2017: Best & Worst Dressed

In case you have been hiding under a rock, it was fashion’s BIG event last night – the Met Gala. Unlike the Oscars etc, where the red carpet looks are just a bonus, the Met Gala is ALL about the red carpet fashion. Here are were my favourites:

Grammys 2017: Best & Worst Dressed

Last night it was the Grammys awards, which is one of my favourite red carpet events because celebs dress bolder. The dress code doesn’t seem to be as serious and formal as the Oscars for example and celebs tend to have more fun – and there were certainly some interesting choices!

Music comebacks I’m excited for in 2017

With the exception of The Weeknd and Little Mix there weren’t any impending music releases I was that excited about in 2016 and I hope that changes in 2017. There are quite a few pop stars we haven’t heard from in ages and I reckon this year is when they drop the much-awaited new material.

My Top Ten: Zoolander 2 cameos

Zoolander 2 has been out for a couple of weeks now but I have only just managed to see it. I generally agree with the reviews – it is not as good as the original one and at times it isn’t funny at all – but I think we can all agree the celebrity cameos were the most impressive thing about it (plus all the original cast returning).
