Pink Gets Candid About Suffering A Miscarriage At Just 17 Years Old!
The singer got candid about suffering ‘several miscarriages,’ including one in her teen years! During an interview for USA Today, Pink opened up about her new album Hurts 2B Human’s more heartbreaking lyrics and explained what they meant.
That being said, about a couple of lines from her song Happy, that go ‘Since I was 17, I've always hated my body / and it feels like my body's hated me,’ Pink told all.
‘The reason I said [that] is because I've always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17 I had a miscarriage. And I was going to have that child. But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it's not doing what it's supposed to do,’ the star explained.
And that feeling must’ve gotten worse at times since she’s had ‘several miscarriages since.’
There is no doubt that this is a very delicate topic to discuss but Pink explained that she believes it’s important to talk about the ‘painful things’ and what ‘you’re ashamed of!’
As for dealing with that sort of heartbreak, Pink obviously uses her music as an outlet but that is not all!
Humor in general, as well as therapy are also big parts of her life that help her cope.
She said, about going to a therapist, that ‘Although that's uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with. I think the reason I can go to such uncomfortable places and be so honest is that I have a really healthy sense of humor.’
Pink and her husband Carey Hart have been together on and off since 2001 and have two kids together – Jameson, 2 and 7 year old Willow.
