Songs can be a powerful way to express emotions, to spread awareness, and to send a message across. Sometimes, it can also be an effective avenue to vent out tragic experience and narrate heartbreaking stories. The recent of which who bared her loss is singer Pink, who is not shying away from her unfortunate narrative when she was just a teen.
The pop star, Alecia Moore (her real name), has never held back and has always been a brave soul in talking about sensitive matters such as politics and marriage. Just as you think that you know everything about her, Pink’s latest album “Hurts 2B Human” may prove that she is the barest in this creation.
A particular song from the bunch called “Happy” deals with her fight against body insecurity and anxiety.
“Happy” may perhaps be the most personal to Pink yet as she revealed in an interview that the first line was about her miscarriage in her teenage years.
The former member of girl group Choice said she revealed the experience because people had always seen her as someone who has a “very strong gymnast body,” but then again, because of the tragic loss, it did take a toll on how one views her body.
The 39-year-old further narrated that as a young woman who wanted to have the baby and then lose it, she started thinking that her body doesn’t love her or that it was broken.
Since then, she had suffered miscarriages and learned that she writes her songs as a way to deal with these types of experience. Pink underlined the importance of talking about these sensitive things and being honest about what you’ve been hiding from yourself.
It was only five years after Pink’s first miscarriage, or after the release of the 2001 album “Missundaztood,” that she sought the help of a therapist, only after her best friend Laura Wilson prodded her to talk to an expert.
The “Just Give Me a Reason” singer further credits therapy for letting her see the blind spots, even though these are painful. Apart from the professional aid, the mom of two said her sense of humor greatly helped her in dire times and which became helpful in moving forward.
This is hardly the first time Pink has revealed personal details about her life. Last month, Pink revealed that she and husband motocross rider Carey Hart have been going to couples’ therapy for almost the entire duration of their relationship, which she admitted was the savior of their marriage.
It became hard for the couple because both of them came from broken families and they didn’t have someone to look at as a model, so she said that therapy really helped their relationship.
