The superstar believes in a less conventional way of raising her kids. That being said, we have learned that Pink has been raising her offspring in a ‘gender neutral’ household.
She has revealed that what made her decide on such a parenting style was the fact that six-year-old daughter Willow once told her she wanted ‘to marry an African woman’ when growing up.
Despite the fact that some may think her approach to gender and gender roles when it comes to her children may be weird, for Pink, it feels like a ‘totally normal’ thing to do.
Pink explained that she did not want her daughter Willow and 11-month-old son Jameson to be defined by any traditional gender roles.
‘We are a label-less household. Last week Willow told me she’s going to marry an African woman. I was like: Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’And she was like: ‘Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.’
In addition, Pink gave, even more, insight into her parenting technique at the MTV VMAs when she gave a touching tribute to her daughter.
She talked about bullying and self-worth, noting that Willow once told her: ‘I am the ugliest girl I know.’
The singer made sure to give the little girl some precious advice and told her how beautiful she really is.
‘When people make fun of me they say I look like a boy or I am too masculine or I am too outspoken. Do you see me growing my hair? Do you see me changing my body? Do you see my selling out arenas all over the world? Baby girl, we do not change. We take the gravel in the shell and make a pearl. We help other people change so that they can see all kinds of beauty,’ Pink wisely said.
