Pink reveals an ‘annoying’ trait about her 6-year-old daughter
The singer makes a surprising revelation about her daughter and it's driving her crazy.
She’s her own boss on stage and through her music. But Pink recently admitted her daughter has an annoying trait she can’t seem to control.
Disclosing details about her parenting in a recent interview with Redbook, the singer confessed she has a difficult time dealing with her daughter’s inability to cry. She told the publication her eldest daughter Willow, 6, hardly sheds a tear.
This is surprising for the concerned mom who admits she’s “a total crier.”
“I cry at commercials I cry when the wind’s changing directions.”
But Willow, she says, “won’t cry ever” and it completely annoys the 38-year-old performer. Proving how tough her daughter was, Pink recalled an incident that caught her off guard.
“I knew she was upset and she wouldn’t talk to me. I sat down on the pavement and I was like, ‘I’m not moving until you tell me about your feelings, because this is going to be a lifelong conversation for you and me and you have to learn to let me in.’
“Without batting an eye, she goes, ‘I promise to tell you more about my feelings if you promise to tell me less about yours.’”
Shocked at her daughter’s reaction, the singer said,
“In my head I was like, ‘Holy s—t!’ But I said, ‘Not going to happen. People pay me for my feelings.’”
However, Pink later realized her daughter is built differently from her and she has to learn to accept that.
“She processes differently than I do, and it’s teaching me a lot about how to deal with people. I process out loud. She does it inside and it scares me a little, but I have to let her go through her process.”
Pink has been traveling around the country lately for her ‘Beautiful Trauma’ tour and she made sure her family came along with her. Her husband Carey Hart, and her children, Willow and 17-month-old Jameson remain her priority according to the star and she admitted it felt great that her kids get to experience her work.
“I think it’s cool that they get to see their mom be the boss and work really freaking hard to realize a dream. I’d say it’s 95 percent positive.”
But the singer also revealed she’d gladly drop her tour in a heartbeat if her kids decide they want a normal life at home.
Meanwhile, the devoted mother confessed that as much as she’s juggling her career and her family, she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I’ve never juggled so many damn plates in my life, but it’s because I want to. I enjoy it. If I had nannies raising my kids and just wanted to be a rock star and party all the time, I wouldn’t be successful and I wouldn’t be happy.”
