Pink recently took to Twitter after trolls bashed her over her weight.
The singer will not allow anyone to bully her or anyone else, telling Entertainment Tonight that she may appear tough but is still human.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight after the BMI Pop Awards show on Tuesday, Pink says she will not be bullied about her weight. That is one reason why she spoke out to defend herself on Twitter last month when body shamers began to criticize her appearance.
Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, said, “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? 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 were doing alright in the Hart household.”
She said, “I don’t take well to bullying. 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. I’m raising a girl. I am a girl. I have feelings. People think I take no sh*t and I’m tough, tougher than nails, but I’m a human being.”
Photos of Pink wearing a black party dress surfaced online last month and Twitter trolls slammed her for her fuller figure.
Experts believe that everyday people who witness celebrities being fat-shamed can suffer harmful psychological effects as well, especially younger women.
