Pink: I'd pick cake over fame

Pink says having her daughter has made her fine with the idea of not being famous anymore.

The singer has been in the public eye since releasing the first single from her debut album There You Go in 2000. She has a legion of devoted fans but insists it wouldn't be traumatic if she suddenly lost popularity.

The star and her husband Carey Hart are parents to two-year-old daughter Willow and Pink would love to expand their brood.

"If nothing else happened to me as 'Pink', I would feel really proud of what I've done," she told the Australian edition of GQ magazine.

"And I'd be totally OK and just have more babies, eat lots of cheesecake, ride my bike and give people the middle finger."

The star married Carey in 2006 and despite a later separation they are now happier than ever.

Having Willow had a profound effect on the 33-year-old, who admits always doubting whether she was actually maternal.

"She's the coolest thing that has ever happened to me," Pink gushed. "I didn't want kids. I was terrified. The relationship I had with my mother was really rocky at times.

"Willow's made me realise I'd be OK with letting all this go."

The star also discussed her popularity, which she believes is down to her honesty. She had a difficult time when she was growing up and experimented with drugs. Pink has spoken about that in the past and hopes her experiences help other people realise they can get through trauma.

"I figure the reason people like me is because they're going through the same sh*t or can empathise..." she said.

"Ever since I was a little girl, I've been attracted to minorities, and I think that's part of the connection. I get the struggle.

"I'm sometimes really sad. I watch the news, I have a father who is ill with Agent Orange [used in chemical warfare], I have a grandmother who just passed away and friends who are single moms."
