She was so witty and charming and intelligent, but she also battled an ugly-duckling syndrome. I would love to play her in a movie." Of Madonna she stated "I'd seen artists change styles and fail miserably, but I've also seen artists change and continue to do well. That's why Madonna has always been an inspiration for me." Additionally, Pink said "I wanted to do it my way with my career, and I had this arrogant notion that people weren't just interested in my music but me as a person. That was my bit of arrogance, I guess. That's something I learned from Madonna. I was a fan right from the first time I heard 'Holiday.'" Pink also won her first talent show singing Madonna's "Oh Father". As a child, she admired the leader of 4 Non Blondes, Linda Perry who she would later track down and form a close relationship on her second album. She said: "Literally this woman spoke to me.

Jon O'Brien of AllMusic stated that Pink's music provided "the benchmark for the careers of Kelly Clarkson and Katy Perry, to name just two." "Although never quite achieving the cultural impact (and infamy) of contemporaries such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, she's proved surprisingly durable and influential (would there be any Katy Perry or Ke$ha without Pink?)", wrote John Murphy of musicOMH in his review of The Truth About Love. In a 2012 cover story on Pink, The Advocate wrote: "The singer has changed the sound of modern pop music irrevocably paving the path for many of today's most popular modern female artists, including Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Rihanna."
