Pink met Hart, 35, in 2001 at the X-Games. Following a brief separation in 2003, Pink proposed to her motocross beau in June 2005. 

The two married in January 2006 and then separated in February 2008. But after marriage counseling and working through their issues, Pink confirmed in February 2010 that she and Hart were back together.

In November, Pink told Access Hollywood about the unusual name she and Hart were considering at the time. "My dad's name is James, and my brother's name is Jason… Carey's middle name is Jason, [and] Jameson–we like whiskey. That's a no brainer."

In November, she released her Greatest Hits…So Far!!! album, which included a new song dedicated to her unborn child. She wrote on her blog the significance behind the track, "Fucking Perfect," saying: "I have a life inside of me, and I want her or him to know that I will accept him or her with open and loving and welcoming arms. And though I will prepare this little munchkin for a sometimes cruel world, I will also equip this kid to see all the beauty in it as well."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
