Pink: My Claws Have Sharpened Since Becoming a Mother
Pink covers the June 2013 issue of Glamour magazine while opening up about her marriage to husband Carey Hart and their 2-year-old daughter Willow Sage.
On the name Willow Sage: “I love the idea that a willow tree cannot be snapped or broken. And we burn sage all the time. It clears bad energy.”
On her mama-bear claws: “Somebody asked Carey how I’ve changed since I had Willow, and he said my claws have sharpened. They got longer too.”
On her marriage to Carey Hart: “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 we communicate and we’ve grown up together, not because we don’t fight.”
Her worst day as a parent so Far: “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. 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.”
