One of her most popular hits, Who Knew, is actually about the loss of two friends to drugs, she revealed.

“I sadly lost several friends to overdoses and the second one was very, very, very close to me and I loved him very much,” she said.

Pink was referred to her friend Sekou Harris, who died of a heroin overdose when they were both just 14 years old.

Who Knew, published in 2006, includes the lyrics: “If in three years someone said / You’d be long gone / I’d get up and beat them all up / Because they’re all wrong… I know better / Because you said forever / And always / Who would have thought?

“What I love about the song now, after all these years, is that I never tire of playing it and it’s taken on so many different meanings over the years,” Pink said.

“It was about my grandmother.

“It was about my dog.

“I’ve lost people, so it’s always kind of fresh in my heart.”

Pink added that music helped her process her feelings, as did many other people.

In the past, Pink has been open about her drug use.

“I was a hardcore partyer from 12 to 15,” she once told Entertainment Weekly.

“I was like a candy raver and I was on all the club drugs.

“I overdosed on Thanksgiving 1995.

“And then I never did drugs again.”

Speaking to Shape Magazine in 2012, she said she wasn’t hospitalized, but it was the wake-up call she needed.

“I remember getting up off the floor in the morning — and that was the last time I ever touched a drug again,” she said.

“It was also the day a DJ offered to let me sing at hip-hop night.

“His only reservation was that I couldn’t do drugs, so I didn’t do it.

“It’s like that for me – once I’ve decided, I’m done.”

In 2000, at the age of 20, Pink signed to a record label and released her first album, Can’t Take Me Home, featuring the hits There You Go and You Make Me Sick.
