Pink opened up about her struggle with her body image and why she’s comfortable getting candid about it in her music.
“Since I was 17, I’ve always hated my body / and it feels like my body’s hated me,” Pink wrote in her new song. “The reason I said [that] is because I’ve always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17 I had a miscarriage, and I was going to have that child,” Pink revealed to the magazine.
Pink went on to say that having a miscarriage makes you “feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do.”
The “So What” singer revealed she’s had multiple miscarriages since then. (RELATED: Pink Slams Critics After Deleting Photo Of Her Son Without A Diaper On)
“So, I think it’s important to talk about what you’re ashamed of, who you really are and the painful [expletive]. I’ve always written that way,” Pink shared.
It took Pink five years to seek therapy after her first miscarriage and she credits it for her willingness to get candid in her music.
“I believe in self-confrontation and just getting things out,” Pink says. “What I love about therapy is that they’ll tell you what your blind spots are,” she said. “Although that’s uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with. I think the reason I can go to such uncomfortable places and be so honest is because I have a really healthy sense of humor.”
