Pink is a badass. If you disagree, please see me out back (so we can have a heated but mutually respectful discussion about it). The singer took the stage at the VMA's last night and used the platform to respond to a heartbreaking comment made by her adorable 6-year-old daughter, Willow, who said she feels "ugly" because she "looks like a boy."
"Recently I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me 'Mama, I'm the ugliest girl I know,'" Pink said, emotionally, as the camera panned to her daughter in the crowd, watching her mom's speech. She then explains how she made a PowerPoint presentation to show her daughter why there's nothing wrong with being androgynous or gender-fluid. And in fact, not ascribing to clear gender roles puts someone in pretty amazing company with the likes of David Bowie, Annie Lennox and Prince (Pink didn't mention herself, but Pink is def a member of this esteemed club!).
