Pink Lands on Cover of ‘People’s’ Beautiful Issue
From Beautiful Trauma to just plain beautiful, enduring pop-rock star Pink has landed on the cover of People's annual Beautiful Issue, and said the distinction is simply the result of being herself — unapologetically.
Currently on the road in support of her latest album, the 2018 Billboard Music Awards nominee — mother to six-year-old Willow and one-year-old Jameson — said that parenting is very much a case of trial and error, but noted "fairness and justice" are cornerstones of her household.
“Yeah, I believe in affection,” she said. “I believe in needs being met and faith being implemented, and I believe in letting your kids know they can count on you, and that you’ll be there. My parents obviously did not believe in that and I worked out okay. I always tell Willow, ‘I’m going to teach you the rules so that you’ll know how and when to break them.’ ”
She also said she's raising her children in a mostly gender-neutral household in which girls can be as tough as they want to be and guys can be as sensitive as they want to be.
"[But] I feel like gender-neutral is in itself a label and I’m label-less,” she clarified. “I don’t like labels at all so I believe that a woman and a girl can do anything.”And I believe that a boy can do anything. So I have boys that flip dirt bags and I have boy friends that wear dresses. It’s all okay to me. It’s whatever floats your boat. So that’s the kind of house that we live in.”
