Pink: “I Have No Idea Why Anyone Likes Me”
Pink is currently barnstorming through Australia, playing show after show, with her husband Carey Hart and daughter Willow in tow. But even though she’s sold 500,000 tickets on this current tour, Pink says she’s baffled as to why so many fans want to come see her.
Asked why she’s so popular in Australia, Pink says, “I have never, ever been able to answer that question. I have no idea why anyone likes me!” She laughs, “I am very polarizing. It’s either absolutely love or absolutely can’t-be-around-for-more-than-three-seconds.”
Pink also opens up about what it’s like touring the world with her two-year-old daughter, which she says is “different” from the way she used to spend her days on the road.
“I used to stay up til 4 o’clock in the morning on the Internet, drinking wine, smoking cigarettes, wake up at noon, roll out of bed, go to the gym,” she explains, “Now it’s foot-on-face here, hot breath…it’s just awesome. It’s exhausting and it’s terrifying and it’s the best thing that has ever happened.”
But when it comes to having more kids, the singer admits that, while she likes the idea of a big family, she doesn’t necessarily want to go through the whole pregnancy thing multiple times.
“I don’t want to do the baby stuff five times, but the idea of, like, a vacation with five kids fighting and me just sitting at the head of the table cracking up, pouring more wine,” Pink says. “I just love that idea. I love the idea of all the chaos.”
