Pink Opens Up About Miscarriage At 17: 'You Feel Like Your Body Is Broken'
The singer opened up about her past, speaking out on the "several miscarriages" she had when she was just a teenager.
She's never been one to shy away from tacking tough-to-talk about issues, and now, Pink has opened up about some of the heart-wrenching lyrics featured on her latest album 'Hurts 2B Human'.
Speaking to USA Today, the 'So What' songstress got candid on the meaning behind her song 'Happy', revealing that the lyrics "Since I was 17, I've always hated my body / and it feels like my body's hated me" are in reference to the devastating miscarriages she suffered during her teen years.
"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," Pink told the publication.
"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," she continued.
"I've had several miscarriages since, so I think it's important to talk about what you're ashamed of, who you really are and the painful s**t. I've always written that way."
She added that while she used music as an outlet for her feelings, it wasn't until she went to therapy at the age of 22 that she dealt with her issues.
"Although that's uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with," she said of seeing a therapist. "I think the reason I can go to such uncomfortable places and be so honest is because I have a really healthy sense of humour."
Pink now has two children -- Willow, 7, and Jameson, 2, -- who she shares with husband Carey Hart, who have been together since 2001, despite briefly separating in 2003 and 2008.
While she previously shared adorable snaps of her two kids on social media, she has since said she would no longer upload photos of them due to social media trolls.
"I like to share my family. It's my proudest moment in my whole life. I'm prouder of my kids than anything I've ever done," she told Ellen DeGeneres last week. "I won't share them anymore. I won't do it. I'm not posting pictures of them anymore."
