Pink proud to be strong

Pink isn’t interested in being skinny preferring her strong, athletic body over a slimmer physique.

The American hitmaker has been known for her toned body and rock hard abs since bursting on to the music scene in 2000.

The 34-year-old singer is no stranger to showing of her athletic physique and strength during her live performances, which have often included circus and acrobatic tricks.

"Instead of thinking, 'Am I skinny?' I grew up thinking, 'Am I fast enough? How can I use my body?'" Pink mused to Who magazine. "I'm a person who could always lose a couple here and there but I would rather be strong than bony."

Pink is the proud mother of three-year-old daughter Willow with her husband Carey Hart.

She hopes to pass on her healthy body image to the little one, and the pair already have come up with their own off-beat workout routines together.

"She said to me the other day, 'Mama, on Tuesday I think we should get naked and have a naked booby butt dance party.' I was like, I'm in!'" she laughed.

Pink doesn’t buy into the stick thin ideal that Hollywood seems to prefer, instead choosing to hone her muscles and have some meat on her bones.

She attributes her confidence to knowing that she’s in peak physical condition.

"I'm in the best shape of my life," she revealed even though she admits she’s "ten pounds heavier" than she was before her pregnancy.

"I'm so much more patient with myself,” she added.

Despite her buff body, Pink isn’t one to deny herself and often indulges in a glass of wine and her favourite snacks.

"I train five days a week for an hour and a half, plus rehearsals if I'm touring - but I eat a lot too," she revealed to British magazine Closer. "I like my food and I like my wine, so I don't let it stop me from enjoying myself."
