Done looking for the critics, ’cause they’re everywhere! After her headline-making takedown of body-shamers back in April, Pink is once again standing up for herself — and everyone else who’s ever been the butt of a joke.
“I don’t take well to bullying,” the “Try” singer, 35, told Entertainment Tonight at the BMI Pop Awards on Tuesday, May 12. “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.”
That’s something she hopes to pass on to her daughter, Willow, who will turn 4 in June. “I’m raising a girl. I am a girl,” the star (real name: Alecia Moore) told ET. “I have feelings. People think I take no s–t and I’m tough, tougher than nails, but I’m a human being.”

She went on to question her body-shamers’ own humanity, wondering what gave them the idea that it’s okay to make nasty comments about someone they don’t even know.
“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?” she said. “So I thought it was important for me to remind them that I don’t care. 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 all right in the Hart household.”
Indeed, as the “Just Give Me a Reason” performer tweeted last month, she’s “perfectly happy” with how she looks, critics be damned.
“I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight,” she wrote after attending a cancer benefit in a black ankle-length gown. “While I admit that that dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I felt beautiful.”
She continued: “So, my good and concerned peoples, please don’t worry about me. I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you either…I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous, and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern.”
