Pink Talks Struggles of Monogamy, Collab With Eminem & 'Beautiful Trauma'
P!nk's seventh studio album titled Beautiful Trauma has arrived this morning (Oct. 13), but a new interview with The Guardian sees the singer talking about other matters such as monogamy, pop feuds and Eminem.
The piece is a very personal look -- even referring to P!nk by her real name, Alecia Moore, throughout -- and begins with P!nk's insights into the aftermath of her now-viral MTV VMAs Vanguard Award speech from August in which she told a touching story about her daughter thinking she's ugly.
“I think it’s beautiful, because it was an experience that my daughter and I had, and if it can make somebody else feel better about themselves, then I’m all for it," she told the outlet. "But it’s sad that it resonated with that many people. I hate how much we hate ourselves, and I hate how young it is now. It’s hard to watch.”
Some tracks featured on Beautiful Trauma delve into P!nk's marriage with Carey Hart, whom P!nk has been linked to since 2002. “There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant … he’s like a rock," P!nk gushed. "He’s a good man. He’s a good dad. He’s just the kind of dad I thought he’d be and then some. And then I’ll look at him and go: I’ve never liked you. There’s nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don’t like any of the shit you like. I don’t ever wanna see you again. Then two weeks later I’m like, things are going so good, you guys. Then you’ll go through times when you haven’t had sex in a year. Is this bed death? Is this the end of it? Do I want him? Does he want me? Monogamy is work! But you do the work and it’s good again.”
Another hot topic from Beautiful Trauma is her collaboration with Eminem, "Revenge." P!nk says it's her mom's favorite song off the new album before expressing how much she loves the rapper: “The reason I love Eminem is, number one, I think he’s a lyrical genius, I think he’s one of the best that ever did it. I think he’s funny as shit. I don’t think he believes in any of the shit he says. Otherwise, why would he respect a woman like me? Which he does."
