Pink, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys to Star in ‘VH1 Storytellers’
VH1′s ‘Storytellers’ franchise is kicking off its fall season with three of the most successful ladies in pop music. Pink, Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys will perform and tell the stories behind their songs on three consecutive nights, starting with Swift’s episode on Nov. 11.
Keys’ concert airs on Nov. 12, with Pink following a day later, according to Entertainment Weekly. In addition to having dozens of hit singles between them, all three performers have new albums to promote. Pink’s ‘The Truth About Love’ drops in September, Swift’s ‘Red’ arrives in October, and Keys’ ‘Girl on Fire’ is expected to hit stores before the end of the year.
“I have always love ‘Storytellers’ and, as a songwriter, how much fun it is to be able to tell your stories,” Pink told the magazine. But, she added, “Everyone has heard mine before!”
Fans may know the complete stories behind Pink’s songs, but that’s not necessarily the case for Swift’s music, which gives plenty of details but rarely names names. Maybe Taylor will let us know which of her former boyfriends was the inspiration for songs like ‘White Horse,’ ‘Should’ve Said No,’ and her new smash ‘We Are Never Ever Getting back Together.’
EW reports that Swift hasn’t yet decided where she will film her ‘Storytellers’ concert. She has created a website in which high school and college students can nominate their campus. One school will be chosen to host Swift’s performance, while the top five finishers receive $10,000 grants for their music department.
