The talented artist confessed she was surprised to learn that she was being named 2018’s Most Beautiful Woman. Pink was on Ellen DeGeneres’ show today via satellite, as she is currently touring, and opened up about the title People magazine attributed to her.
As fans may be aware, the singer is on the recently renamed Beautiful Issue’s cover alongside her two children, Jameson, 1 and 6-year-old Willow.
About getting the call that informed her of this, Pink told Ellen that: ‘I laughed out loud. I immediately turned to who was in the room and said, ‘Did you ever think this is as good as it gets?’ I think it is honestly Jameson and Willow that secured that deal for me.’
Pink went on to joke about the baby’s open mouth picture on the cover, saying: ‘I am wondering if in 20 years Jameson’s going to be upset about his first cover.’
‘Grammy Winner @Pink Graces the Cover of PEOPLE’s Beautiful Issue with Her Two Kids. #TheBeautifulIssue,’ the magazine’s official Twitter wrote in the caption of the cover’s reveal.

But although Pink admits she was shocked she was named the most beautiful of 2018, the singer revealed how happy she is that beauty standards are starting to change.
‘I do not think my 13-year-old self would’ve listened. I love the way things are currently changing and love how our perception of beauty has been knocked on its head completely.
‘And there is nothing wrong with beautiful – and there is nothing wrong with beautiful on the inside, beautiful on the outside – it is all different shades, it is all different sizes, it means whatever it may mean to you, and I believe on one hand my sense of humor is the very best part of all of it, and on the other hand, it is a wonderful time that we are celebrating all different kinds of people.’
