Pink has opened up about certain rules for her 11-year-old daughter Willow, admitting that she’s keeping her daughter off of social media.
Now, Pink is not a woman to be messed with. Born Alecia Beth Moore in Doylestown, Pennsylvania in 1979, the forty-three-year-old has become one of the best-known feminist music icons of our decade.
The singer first rose to fame in the girl-group Choice in 1995, when she was just sixteen.
But record producers quickly saw her potential for solo stardom and they wasted no time in snatching her right up.
And from then on she was a pop icon…
The album, titled Can’t Take Me Home, was certified double-platinum in the U.S. It included 2 top-ten hits, There You Go and Most Girls.
Since then, she has gone on to achieve huge career successes. Pink has sold over ninety million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling musical acts of all time.
And she is pretty head strong…
She isn’t one to sit quietly if she disagrees with something, as has been overtly critical of issues such as celebrity culture, misogyny, animal cruelty, and homophobia.
Her numerous hairstyles and outfit choices over the years have certainly outlined her daring attitude. She first captured press attention as a result of her wild and wacky outfits, including her eponymous “pink” hair.
She’s made some bold choices throughout her career, and even though some of them were rather questionable, Pink totally owned it.
But now it seems Pink has settled for a more toned-down look, especially now that the singer is a mom to her 2 young children, Willow and Jameson Moon, she seems to have transformed her appearance into something more natural.
Pink has opened up about how she finds being a mom “overwhelming.”
I think we can all agree it gets like that at times.
Pink spoke about parenting while discussing her partnership with the Calm app with People.
She revealed that she gets “overwhelmed all the time” by motherhood and cries “in my closet a lot.”
“Here’s the problem when you don’t have boundaries in your house — I’ll go in the shower and have a full out loud conversation with myself and I’ll turn around and Willow’s been standing there staring at me the entire time.”
Pink joked that she needs “more locks” in her house as she tries “to explain to my children that me going to the bathroom is not an invitation for a family meeting.”
“I get overwhelmed all the time,” Pink continued. “I am an extrovert.”
“I process out loud and my daughter is an introvert and I don’t know what she’s thinking half the time.”
The singer also added that “the community and the village that we have” is something she uses “to check in with her as much as I can.”
“I know that sometimes I’m going to learn more about my daughter from my friend who their daughter plays together and that’s okay.”
She also opened up during a recent appearance on KTU 103.5 FM, about her kids.
“My kids don’t have a phone,” Pink revealed.
“And my daughter is the only 11-year-old in her class that doesn’t have one!”
“It’s hard. A lot of my friends have their kids on TikTok, and I don’t.”
“I told Willow, ‘That just doesn’t move my needle. They’re not my kids. You’re my kid.’”
“I told her, point blank, ‘If you can produce literature from a reputable source that tells me that social media is good for you, then you can be on it. Otherwise, good luck’,” she said.
Pink added: “She could be a lawyer, she could literally pass the bar. She’s always right.”
