Pink Says Marriage Is Daily Work; Admits She Needs A Swear Jar

Singer and celebrity mom Pink opened up to Glamour magazine for their June issue, addressing everything from how tough marriage really is, to how stressful motherhood can be – and even dishing on her date with Joey Fatone back in the day! 

 

 

GLAMOUR: You’ve got lots of sex songs on this last album. There’s “Slut Like You” and “Walk of Shame.”

PINK: Oh,yeah. I’m a reformed slut.

 

GLAMOUR:Slut is a big word in the Pink glossary.

PINK: It’s my very unsophisticated way of taking the power back. I’ve always had an issue with [the idea that]: “OK, we’ve both decided to do this. Why am I a slut and you’re the player? You didn’t get anything from me that I didn’t get from you.”

 

GLAMOUR: Let’s talk about your early days, when you were on the road with *NSYNC and 98 Degrees. How wild did that get?

PINK: It was Beatlemania for those boys. I got in trouble for toilet-papering 98 Degrees’ bus.

 

GLAMOUR: Did you get along with Justin and the guys?

PINK: Joey Fatone was in love with me. He took me to Friendly’s on a date, and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart. He asked my dad’s permission.

 

GLAMOUR: Tell me about the name Willow Sage.

PINK: I love the idea that a willow tree cannot be snapped or broken. And we burn sage all the time. It clears bad energy.

 

GLAMOUR: After all the breakups and separations, is it hard to accept that things are good with Carey?

PINK: Accept that it’s good? Are things ever good? I don’t believe that exists. Long-term relationships are an everyday choice. It’s harder to be in a marriage than it is to bounce from one relationship to the next. We’re good because wecommunicate and we’ve grown up together, not because we don’t fight.

 

GLAMOUR: What’s the last thing you fought about?

PINK: [She yells to the next room.] Carey! What was the last thing we fought about? Oh, I know! You not getting me flowers and being a douchebag. That was it.

 

GLAMOUR: Flowers? Really? A badass like you wanted flowers?

PINK: He needed to get me flowers after I had a big show. Hear that, Carey? I’m throwing you to 17 million wolves right now, buddy.

 

GLAMOUR: OK, Mama Bear. Every new parent has bad days. What was your worst so far?

PINK: When I was at iHeartRadio [music festival] in Vegas. Carey was at a truck race or something. Willow and I were at the pool, and I was taking her to nap time. She was walking just a foot in front of me. And she trips and falls and gets a concussion. She passed out. Cut to an ambulance and fire truck. And a CAT scan. She was about a year old. That was the worst day of my life. And what do they say? “Kids fall.” Welcome to parenthood. I thought, I can’t handle this. I’m fitting her for a bubble.

 

GLAMOUR: It’s surprising to hear you talking about fear, because your persona is so fearless.

PINK: Every time she bounces on the bed, I see stitches. Being a parent is a Jedi mind f–k. It’s also the raddest thing ever.

 

GLAMOUR: You know, you cuss a lot. How do you deal around her? Are you worried?

PINK: Willow said, “F–kin’ hi,” the other day. I’m like, “F–k!”

 

GLAMOUR: So the goal here is not to cuss, right?

PINK: Yes. We’re gonna get a jar. Have to.
