Lady Sings the Pinks

Self-created disco-diva Pinque: If this is camp, it's camp with a guilelessly straight face

According to Pinque, making it isn't everything, and she's happy just being able to sing, and to put out product that she's proud of. Though she's not working now -- spending all her time promoting the hush... project -- she likes record-store work because it keeps her close to music and allows her to keep track of her favorite artists. "Ask me anyone, I can tell you what label they're on," she says, before rattling off a list. She does admit to being a bit obsessive, but not in a harmful way. "I am. I mean, I get addicted to things. I don't drink alcohol, but I'll drink six cokes a day."

But somehow you know she'd be happier having "made it," dominating airwaves and directing boys' choirs, writing music and designing CD covers, cloaking the globe in positive pink energy -- pop music's own Christo.

"I know I'm gonna make it. I mean, I have to think that, or it wouldn't happen."

And finally, I just had to ask: Don't you ever get sick of pink?
"No, never. I just love it."
But really, haven't you ever just shut the blinds and stayed at home in, say, a red dress?

"No," she replies. "I hate red."

Pinque celebrates the release of hush... The drama at Club Hedonism, 2401 San Jacinto, on Thursday, January 27. Call 759-9606 for info.
