Pop sensation Pink is glad she experimented with drugs as a child, because it put her off them for life.

The American singer lead a wild childhood in her native Philadelphia - but is glad she got the temptation out of her system.

Pink - real name ALECIA MOORE - says, "I was an experimental kid, put it that way.

"I went through it young and I never have to go through it again. It made me aware of what things can do, and how much fun and how much disaster you can have in your life at the same time."
