Pink Stripped Bare: “I’d Rather Be Strong Than Bony”

Pink goes naked for WHO's Body Issue, on sale now

Posing completely nude three years after becoming a mum, “I’m in the best shape of my life,” declares WHO’s cover girl Pink as she leads a host of brave stars stripping down to celebrate positive body image and finding confidence for WHO’s special Body Issue.

Showing off her fit and athletic form in a stunning naked photo series, the “Try” singer says her body confidence stems from “when I know I’m fit” and that despite being “ten pounds [4.5kg] heavier” than she was before her pregnancy, “I’m so much more patient with myself.”

The pop sensation, who was a child gymnast, learnt from an early age that “instead of thinking, ‘Am I skinny?’ I grew up thinking, ‘Am I fast enough? How can I use my body?’”

“I’m a person who could always lose a couple [pounds] here and there, but I would rather be strong than bony.”

It’s this strong sense of self that Pink, who wed motocross star Carey Hart in 2006, hopes to instill in their daughter, three-year-old Willow: “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!’”

And, in keeping with her belief in the power of fostering self-esteem in young people, the honorary Aussie has also thrown her support behind Sydney community group Youth Off The Streets. The three-time Grammy winner has lent her song, "The Great Escape," to the organization’s latest TV campaign: “I want to … give these kids a fighting chance."
