Pink is opening up about one of her first heartbreaks — one which has repeated itself over the years.
Talking to USA Today about her new album, Hurts2B Human, the singer said one song, “Happy,” is particularly meaningful to her because she wrote it about the time she suffered her first miscarriage at age 17.
“Since I was 17, I’ve always hated my body / and it feels like my body’s hated me” read the lyrics.
“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, 39, told the outlet. “And I was going to have that child.”
RadarOnline.com readers know Pink is now a mother to Willow Sage, 7, and Jameson Moon, 2, but still, the pain of losing an unborn child will never fully disappear.
“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.”
Pink credited her therapy sessions for not only controlling her anxieties and emotions, but also for saving her marriage.
“I believe in self-confrontation and just getting things out. What I love about therapy is that they’ll tell you what your blind spots are,” she said. “Although that’s uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with.”
Pink added that she and husband Carey Hart have been attending therapy apart and together for almost their entire relationship. Though they’ve had many ups and downs, they recently celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary.
