The hit-maker stated that she doesn’t “take well to bullying” and that, even though she is often perceived as tough and fierce, she is still a real person whose feelings can get hurt.
“I don’t take well to bullying. I never have. I’m not a person that will be bullied. I’m not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied,” the star said for Entertainment Tonight at the BMI Pop Awards, and continued:
“I’m raising a girl. I am a girl. People think I take no s**t and I’m tough, tougher than nails, but I’m a human being.” The 35-year-old Pink has a three-year-old daughter named Willow.
I’d rather be Strong than Bony
Namely, it was her fans who suggested that Pink had put on some weight when they saw her attending the John Wayne 30th Annual Odyssey Ball about a month ago. The star replied shortly after with a lengthy Twitter post.
“I think people have gotten it wrong. They think their opinion matters and holds weight, and I don’t know where or why they’re giving themselves so much credit, you know? So I thought it would be important for me to remind them that I don’t care,” Pink wrote on Twitter.
“My life is full. I like food a lot and I really like to cook. I like to live. I find joy in that and we’re doing alright in the Hart household. I’m a person who could always lose a couple (of pounds) here and there. But I’d rather be strong than bony.”
