Pink hits back at weight critics

Pink has told people not to be "concerned" about her figure.

The 35-year-old singer and her husband Carey Hart attended the John Wayne 2015 Odyssey Ball in Beverly Hills on Saturday, where she wore a striking black dress with a daringly low neckline.

While she clearly oozed confidence on the red carpet, it didn't stop internet trolls from sending hateful messages regarding her weight.

Luckily Pink has taken the mean comments in her stride and took to Twitter to share a long response to her critics.

“I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight. You’re referring to the pictures of me from last night’s cancer benefit that I attended to support my dead friend Dr. Maggie DiNome. She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer,” the star wrote, adding that her weight seems to have become more important to people than the cause of the event.

“While I admit that the dress didn’t photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty. In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don’t worry about my. I’m not worried about me. And I’m not worried about you either:)…I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off. Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake. (sic)"

Luckily Pink and Carey had plenty of fun at the event. To accompany a cute black and white photo of them from the event, in which they're sat at their table beaming at the camera, Pink joked about Carey's outlook.

"and my hubby says "it's just more to love baby" (and then I smack his hand off my booty cause we're in a supermarket) (sic)" she wrote.

Pink added that she's "happy" in her own skin, along with sharing a sweet comment made by her daughter Willow, who asked why her mother is so "squishy".
