Pink Shuts Down Body Criticism: 'My Healthy Body Is Having Some Much Deserved Time Off'

Posted on

When Pink put on a pretty party dress, delicate black headband and sparkling chandelier earrings to head out to an event Saturday night, she felt great about herself, just as we all do when we get dressed to the nines. But, this being the internet, it didn’t take long for some people to post her photo with nasty comments about the singer’s body. And because Pink is as famously outspoken as she is incredibly fit, she took to Twitter to demand some sanity.

In a typed-out screengrab posted on Twitter, Pink wrote:

“I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight. You’re referring to the pictures of me from last night’s cancer benefit that I attended to support my [dear] friend Dr. Maggie DiNome. She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you. While I admit that the dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don’t worry about [me]. I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you either 🙂 … I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake.”

Considering this is the performer who can do this and this without even blinking, we’re with her on all counts above. But to further prove her case, Pink posted a few reminders of what’s really important: Being a present, healthy and able body for her family (daughter Willow and husband Carey Hart) to love.
