Pink: 'I Was Always Considered Butch'

Pink: 'I Was Always Considered Butch'

Pink takes the cover of Redbook magazine’s March 2013 issue, on newsstands February 12.

Here’s what the 33-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On what makes her feel beautiful: “Well, I was always considered butch. Feeling beautiful to me is when I feel good in my leather pants and my husband grabs my as*. Or when I’m sitting on a mat and my daughter runs to me with complete joy. Beautiful has never been my goal. Joy is my goal—to feel healthy and strong and powerful and useful and engaged and intelligent and in love. It’s about joy. And there’s such joy now.”

On reconciling with husband Carey Hart in 2008: “Eleven months after we broke up, he asked me to fly to Las Vegas to perform on New Year’s Eve at his club. I wanted to see him. And I looked hot. There’s something about breaking up with someone—you just look hotter than you ever did before. I will never look as good as I did those six months after we broke up. Never! [Laughs] Anyway, after sound check I told him that he needed to come to my room. I had made him a photo album of all the cards he had ever given me, of all the photos of our entire relationship. I spent months on this album. On the last page, I pasted a photo of me from a really bad movie I made years ago with my neck slit and blood everywhere. Next to it I wrote, ‘This is me without you.’ On the next page, there was a picture of a baby. And I wrote: ‘The rest is unwritten’ The divorce papers that we never signed were behind that page. I was like, ‘The rest is up to you.’ And I did all of this in his favorite bra and panties.”

On her daughter Willow: “That first night in the hospital, she was having a complete meltdown, and Carey was out of it. But this nurse came in and she helped me through the whole thing. We sat up and talked all night with my baby in my arms, and it was like my whole life made sense, for the first time, ever.”

True or not I like her answers. The idea of the photo album was very original and nice. I couldn’t imagine she would be a good mom and her daughter is prettier than her.

# 2

I love this interview and I love Pink,she’s a great entertainer,her songs are amazing,and she also seems like a great person.
What she did to save her marriage is something celebrities could learn from,even real people..these days people rush into divorce or breaking up after a harsh time,they should try and work it out at least,not jump into divorce.
Her daughter is lucky to have her as a mother.

Pink looks good with this hair cut. Unlike Miley Cyrus who can’t pull this look off at all. Pink really is a great mother and adores her little girl.

I like Pink. She’s a grounded lady. Yes, she’s a bit butch, but clearly she’s got ger feminine side.

I like her, she seems so real unlike many celebrities.

I love her interviews. She seems like the most normal person. She’s pretty and really talented.

Fu++ people who are only worried about looks. This beautiful woman is amazing

I’m confused, was this how she told Carey Hart that she was expecting?

That’s the thing about her being “butch.” Like, since when do women have to be super feminine and men have to be super masculine. Like, why does everyone have to lose it when someone doesn’t fit the mold? That’s why I like P!nk: she’s one of the few people I feel IS their own person and doesn’t care much for what people think.

ugh. this so called lady had an affair with tommy lee, to make carey jealous. great move to do so. with a known woman beater who passed his disease to his then wife, without telling her, that he has this disease. but this is all cool because pink is sooo rock’n roll. would this have been someone else, she would get called all names in the book. #hypocrites.
