Singers and celebrates are often a source of inspiration, but things P!nk has said take it to a whole new level. The singer is always unapologetically herself and these P!nk quotes reflect that. She's a true original, combining the catchy choruses of chart-topping pop with edgy lyrics that show she's not afraid to ruffle some feathers. P!nk interview quotes prove she's just as admirable offstage, as she speaks about being a role model as a mom and talks about the ups and downs of marriage.
Even though she is a famous celebrity with millions of adoring fans, P!nk has had her fair share of heartbreak. When she separated from her husband, motocross rider Carey Hart, she took the pain she felt and turned it into the hit 2008 album Funhouse. In her lyrics she seems vulnerable and relatable to fans, which is probably why she has had such a long career. P!nk also faces the scrutiny that any famous woman does, as her appearance is put under the microscope. When she accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2017 MTV VMAs, P!nk told a story about affirming her daughter's worth above and beyond her looks.
From interviews to song lyrics, here are some of the best things P!nk has ever said (or sung).
Baby girl, we don’t change. We take the gravel in the shell and we make a pearl. We help other people to change so that they can see more kinds of beauty.
You're so mean when you talk about yourself, you were wrong. Change the voices in your head, make them like you instead.
You can't move mountains by whispering at them.
Sexy and smart are not oil and water. You don't have to dumb yourself down to be cute.
Embrace the freak that you are.
I'm learning to be brave in my beautiful mistakes.
It's about being alive and feisty and not sitting down and shutting up, even though people would like you to.
Don't lose your passion or the fighter that's inside of you.
My definition of stupid is wasting your opportunity to be yourself – because I think everybody has a uniqueness and everybody's good at something.
Us girls, we forgive but we never forget.
I don't want to live in fear. I don't want to stop fighting. I don't want to retreat to a silent corner
Sometimes I wish I was poetic and subtle. I write very bold and blunt and tell it like it is.
Every album, I'm worried that I'm a dork and a fraud – what if I can't sing anymore? Then I stop thinking and start playing guitar, and I realize that it's OK to suck, and move forward.
There's something about breaking up with someone – you just look hotter than you ever did before.
