Pink is well aware of what people say about her appearance.

"A 'girl like me' is someone who doesn't rest on her looks, who has had people tell me from day one, 'You're never going to get magazine covers because you are not pretty enough.' I'm totally comfortable with that," the music star tells Redbook for its March issue, on newsstands Feb. 12.

"I know my strong points: I work hard, I have talent, I’m funny and I’m a good person."

The singer, 33, whose The Truth About Love is nominated for Best Pop Vocal album at this year's Grammys, elaborates on just how she feels about her looks in a very superficial industry.

"Beautiful has never been my goal," she says. "Joy is my goal – to feel healthy and strong and powerful and useful and engaged and intelligent and in love. It’s about joy. And there's such joy now."

Much of that joy comes from life with her husband, Carey Hart, and their daughter Willow, who turns 2 in June. One way that Pink feels beautiful? "When I'm sitting on a mat and my daughter runs to me with complete joy," she says.

The first night after delivering Willow, Pink adds, a nurse in the hospital spent time helping her adapt to life with a newborn. "That first night in the hospital, [Willow] was having a complete meltdown, and Carey was out of it. But this nurse came in and she helped me through the whole thing. We sat up and talked all night with my baby in my arms, and it was like my whole life made sense, for the first time, ever."
