Man, I love Pink. She’s one of those pop stars that’s completely low key, seemingly down-to-earth and effortlessly cool in the face of so many contrived wannabes. Oh, and she makes some pretty solid pop tunes that are emotionally raw, quirky and sometimes downright funny. Bottom line: Pink is great and always will be.
In a new interview with Redbook, the singer discussed her unconventional path to stardom, as well as her less than mainstream looks, which she’s refused to let hold her back regardless of what industry standards might say:
“A ‘girl like me’ is someone who doesn’t rest on her looks, who has had people tell me from day one, ‘You’re never going to get magazine covers because you are not pretty enough.’ I’m totally comfortable with that.
“I know my strong points: I work hard, I have talent, I’m funny and I’m a good person. Beautiful has never been my goal,” she says. “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.”
