Pink: Bring me halloumi!

Published 11/09/2015


Pink refuses to restrict her diet after working out for nearly five hours a day.

The 36-year-old Please Don’t Leave Me singer is known for her strong, athletic physique.

And although she is committed to maintaining her impressive form, the star will never agree to removing a certain cheese from her diet.

“I'm obsessed with halloumi,” she told Food & Wine magazine. “I grill it for salads with truffle oil and dandelion greens—the more exotic the greens, the better. I don't care if people think halloumi's squeaky; they're wrong.”

Pink is not a fan of restricting her diet in any way.

In fact, when she works more, she consumes more.

“I eat a lot [on tour], because I work out four and a half hours a day: a two-hour show, plus yoga, cardio and a rig check with the flying apparatuses,” she explained. “But here's the issue: I don't change my eating when I get home. So everyone always asks me, ‘What are you going to do after?’ And I say, ‘Get really fat and happy.’”

Pink first became a semi-vegetarian as a young adult.

But she doesn’t always eat super healthy and allows herself the time to gorge every now and again.

“I haven't eaten anything four-legged or cute since I was 15. I had also stopped eating chicken, but when my daughter, Willow, was in my belly, she just demanded chicken wings and fingers,” Pink recalled, noting her first job was in fast food. “It was important to my family that I make my own money. I was a drive-through girl at McDonald's. I had a Janet Jackson microphone—I had power.”
