Pink has revealed that as a 15 year old, she nearly overdosed after years of 'dabbling' with ecstasy, crystal meth and acid.

Speaking to Shape magazine via Digital Spy, the singer said the incident was enough to put her off drugs for good. She said:

"It wasn't to the point of going to the hospital, but I remember getting up off the floor in the morning - and that was the last time I ever touched a drug again."

She added:"It was also the day a DJ offered to let me sing on hip-hop night. His only caveat was that I couldn't do drugs, so I didn't. That's the thing with me - once I make up my mind, I'm done."

The singer later went on to admit however, that she is now "a wino!". She explained: "I'm taking online classes to learn about different grapes. My dream is to own a winery."

Pink recently released 'Try', the second single from her sixth album, 'The Truth About Love'.

A duet between Pink and Eminem 'Here Comes The Weekend', also features on the album. Speaking previously about how she and the rapper arranged the collaboration, Pink said: "He said, 'Do you want to do a song with me?' 'Fuck yeah!' I said, 'Do you want to do a song with me?' and he said, 'Fuck yeah!' Handshake. Nothing signed. Done."

'The Truth About Love' also includes collaborations with Lily Allen and Fun frontman Nate Reuss.
