Pink opens up about ‘several miscarriages’ that she had as a teenager. The singer revealed the reason behind some of her sadder songs on Hurts 2B Human.
Pink opened up to USA Today about the song Happy from her new album Hurts 2B Human, saying, “Since I was 17, I’ve always hated my body / and it feels like my body’s hated me. 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.”
She added, “But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do”. She also said she has had “several miscarriages since” and believes it’s “important to talk about what you’re ashamed of, who you really are.”
Addressing the importance of therapy and humor, Pink also 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.”
During an interview with Ellen last week, Pink said, “I like to share my family. It’s my proudest moment in my whole life. I’m prouder of my kids than anything I’ve ever done. I won’t share them anymore. I won’t do it. I’m not posting pictures of them anymore.”
Pink has two kids with husband Carey Hart named Willow and Jameson. The two have been married since 2001.
