Singer Pink was criticized for her figure Monday after it looked like she put on some weight when photos from a cancer benefit surfaced. Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, swiftly responded to the "fat shamers" Sunday. Though husband Carey Hart didn’t answer the naysayers, he did have something to say about attending the John Wayne 2015 Odyssey Ball in Los Angeles Saturday.
The retired motorcycle racer, 39, took to his Twitter account and Instagram page. He talked about the benefit, his friend who received an award and then added that he looked a little out of place.
“Wifey and I last night at the #JohnWayneCancerInstitute event to see our friend Maggie receive the duke award. Great event w/ a lot of amazing people doing great things to try to find a cure for cancer. Must note that me in a suit w/ a shaved head and neck tattoos, looks like I’m going to court,” he wrote.
Though he might have felt uncomfortable in his suit, Hart had positive things to say about Pink: "Wife was looking great though!!!!” That’s right, "fat shamers," he thought she looked amazing and even added four exclamation points to make his argument.
Hart has been active on social media since the controversy about Pink’s weight erupted, but he hasn’t commented directly. It could be because he knows the “So What” singer can handle herself.
Pink didn’t shy away from her critics and defended her curvier figure. "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.” And to make sure everyone knew they hadn’t gotten the best of her, Pink signed the virtual letter with a tongue-in-cheek signature. “Love, cheesecake,” she concluded.
Pink isn’t the only singer to be attacked for her size lately. Kelly Clarkson was criticized for not losing the baby weight she put on while pregnant with daughter River Rose. Like Pink, Clarkson didn’t let the hurtful comments get to her. “I’m such a creative person that I yoyo. So sometimes I’m more fit and I get into kickboxing hardcore. And then sometimes I don’t and I’m, like, ... I’d rather have wine,” Clarkson said on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
