Pink is reportedly proud of her muscly body and knows she will never pull off the "princess look".
The pop star recently came under fire after holiday photos were published showing her looking super-ripped while on holiday in Miami.
The tight abs and toned legs flaunted by the star while frolicking in the sea with her 19-month-old daughter would make many moms envious.
However the 33-year-old received abuse from internet trolls who branded her "manly".
The singer apparently isn't bothered by the comments, as she prefers to look this way.
"Pink loves looking ripped," a source revealed to British magazine Heat. "She wants to be tough and strong - it's her ideal and even though she knows the criticism is out there, she doesn't care. She can't pull off the pop princess look and she doesn't put pressure on herself to try."
The reason behind her athletic physique is the time spent between the ages of four and 12 training to be a gymnast.
Pink has previously explained that a strong and lean body is the ideal shape for her.
"Gymnasts are short, stocky, muscly powerhouses," she admitted.
Pink gained a significant amount of weight during her pregnancy. She was able to shed the pounds by working out with The Biggest Loser's trainer Jillian Michaels.
