“So What” singer Pink said she would not let anyone bully her, not even “fat-shamers” who criticized her weight gain. The star’s body was mocked online last month after she appeared at a red carpet event, but she quickly shut naysayers down in a cheeky social media post. During the BMI Pop Awards Tuesday, the entertainer explained her reaction.
“I don’t take well to bullying,” she told "Entertainment Tonight" about her critics. “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.”
She said she enjoys her life, food included: “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.”
Though Pink puts on a tough exterior, offensive comments about her weight still can have an effect. “I am a girl, I have feelings and people think I take no s--- and I’m tough, tougher than nails, but I’m a human being,” she said.
In her post where she slammed her haters, she didn’t seem to be too affected. Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, defended her curvier shape. "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," she said in part of her note. "In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don't worry about me. I'm not worried about me.” She even added some humor into the memo and signed it, “Love, Cheesecake.” Before the “fat-shamers” surfaced, and Pink penned her post, husband Carey Hart wrote he thought his wife looked amazing at the April event.
Pink also told "ET" that Internet trolls think they hold power over others with their opinions. “I thought it was important for me to remind them that I don't care. My life is full,” she said.
