Pink’s daughter wants to marry an African woman when she grows up – and she’s delighted about it
Singer Pink has said that she doesn’t want her children to be defined by their gender and that she herself feels like a boy.
She is a staunch defender of gender neutrality and has revealed that her six-year-old daughter Willow has said she wants to marry an African woman when she grows up.
“I was in a school and the bathroom outside the kindergarten said: ‘Gender Neutral – anybody’, and it was a drawing of many different shapes.
“I took a picture of it and I wrote: ‘Progress’. I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation,” said Pink.
She stated that she doesn’t want traditional gender roles imposed on Willow or her 11-month-old son Jameson, both of which she shares with motorcycle racer Carey Hart.
“We are a very label-less household. Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: ‘Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’
“And she’s like: ‘Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.’
“I was like ‘what the f***, who are you? Who is paying for this by the way?’”
Pink also shared that her daughter has a nickname for the current US president, Donald Duck Trumpet.
“I don’t correct her. And I should, because it’s disrespectful, but it’s like – ‘f*** it’. I feel like we are all in this permanent state of f*** it. I can’t imagine being a third-grader and this being the first example of what it means to be President.
“I throw my hands up in the air every day. It’s unbelievable. It’s not funny at all. It’s un-f***ing-believable. I want to skip ahead to the part that it’s over and we start the clean-up process.”
She went on to say that she sees herself as a pre-teen boy but loves being a mother.
“I’m much more mum than I am anything else. Absolutely 100%. They are my everything. It’s the two best decisions I ever made.
“Every decision I make is a choice because it affects my family.
“I do bake sales and lemonade stands. I take my kid to school and try to get there on time.
“I’m a f***ing grown up now, it’s so weird. I’m still a 12-year-old boy.”
Her newest album Beautiful Trauma has been topping the charts worldwide.
“I’m super grateful and I’m shocked it’s done this well, because I’ve never been in this situation where it’s done this well.
“I had Missundaztood but I was so young and wasn’t paying attention, I didn’t experience it. I was just doing s***. I didn’t really know. But this time I’m not young and I am present.”
