Pink Is The Latest Celebrity With A Positive Message To Shut Down Fat-Shamers

Pink is body positive for My Kind of Life

Pink has never cared what you think. She’s never cared what anyone thinks. She’s as famous for her “So What” attitude as she is for her singing or her powerhouse of a body.

Sick of Britney and Christina’s “pretty” pop, I remember listening to Pink when I wanted to jump on a couch and let out all my frustrations with the world. “Stupid Girls” really resonated with me, with this chorus:

Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
Porno Paparazzi girl, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl
Baby if I act like that, flipping my blond hair back
Push up my bra like that, I don’t wanna be a stupid girl.

Looking back, I realize what a progressive, feminist popstar she was — and clearly still is.

Over the weekend, the 35-year-old singer attended a cancer benefit to support a friend, Dr. Maggie DiNome, who posted this picture of the two of them:

After the photo went up, she saw that some social media users criticizing her weight. So, in typical Pink fashion, she found a way to flip ’em off, responding on Twitter with this message:

I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight. You’re referring to the pictures of me from last night’s cancer benefit that I attended to support my [dear] friend Dr. Maggie DiNome. She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you. While I admit that the dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don’t worry about [me]. I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you either … I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake.

She may have gotten hitched and had a child, but she certainly hasn’t lost her edge.

So, of course, she didn’t stop there. Pink followed her initial post with few reminders of what’s really important: being present, healthy, and able for her family (daughter Willow and husband Carey Hart).

The singer then expanded her campaign to include all mothers who face unwarranted criticism of their post-baby bodies.

We applaud Pink for using social media — which is so commonly a breeding ground for negativity — to spread such a positive message. She may not care what you think of her body, but she’ll never just sit back, defenseless. She knows she can use her loud voice to protect herself, her family, and all of us from the ugliness on the Internet.
