P!nk garners praise from Kelly Clarkson for refreshing take on aging: 'I've never really depended on my looks'
P!nk continues to do things her own way, and fans are here for it.
The "Raise Your Glass" singer took to Twitter on Monday to share an open letter to herself about the aging process, encouraging herself to embrace it and fight back against any pressure or desire she feels around "altering" her face.
"Letter to self; Dear Me, you’re getting older.I see lines.Especially when you smile.Your nose is getting bigger..You look(and feel) weird as you get used to this new reality.But your nose looks like your kids, and your face wrinkles where you laugh.And yeah you idiot..u smoked," she tweeted. "Continued note to self: Every once in a while you consider altering your face, and then you watch a show where you want to see what the person is feeling... and their face doesn’t move. I’m cannot get behind it. I just can’t."
"I want my children to know what I look like when I’m angry," she added. "I’m fortunate because I’ve never really depended on my looks. I’ve decided that my talent and my individuality is far more important than my face. So get on board cause I am about to AGE THE OL FASHIONED WAY (in a tutu ruling shit at 30 mph 100 ft in the air over 40) yasssssssss."
In that last tweet, the 40-year-old pop star was alluding to her famous onstage stunts, which often involve her performing acrobatic acts and swinging through the air while singing.
Fellow singer Kelly Clarkson was one of the people who publicly supported P!nk's tweeting spree, sharing that she relates to her thoughts around being a woman in the public eye who struggles with the pressure to always look young.
"I feel you .... except for, you know, the flying through the air thing," Clarkson responded. "You know what, I’ll keep holding it down on the ground for us and you keep the air safe. I’ve always enjoyed teamwork."
The "American Idol" alum wasn't the only one to send P!nk love after her series of tweets: Fans flooded the singer's mentions with messages of love and support, saying that she is "perfect in every way" the way she is.
