In the current issue of Redbook Magazine, Pink opens up about being told she wasn’t pretty enough for the industry and what makes her feel beautiful. I really admire Pink for her openness on everything, especially things that would make some people uncomfortable to talk about. I think Pink’s attitude towards the negativity she has received is inspiring. Although, from the sound of the article it doesn’t sound like Pink thinks she is beautiful, which is just terrible. She talks about the things that make her feel beautiful and about finding joy in her life, but I wish she would say screw what those people said I’m flawless just the way I am and I don’t have to change for anyone. Everyone is beautiful in their own special way, that’s what makes the world so beautiful.

I know my strong points: I work hard, I have talent, I’m funny, and I’m a good person.” 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 ass. 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.”
