If you’ve ever had an opinion about the way P!nk looks, here’s a newsflash: She doesn’t care. Also, no one cares.

During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the singer talked about the recent criticism she’s faced that’s been geared towards her weight. She said, “I don’t take well to bullying, I never have.”

After addressing body-shamers on Twitter earlier this year, Pink explained that she refuses to put up with being shamed. She said, “I’m not a person that will be bullied. I’m not a person that will stand by and watch other people be bullied…I’m also raising a girl. I am a girl. I have feelings. People think that I take no shit and that I’m tough, I’m tougher than nails. But I’m a human being.”

She went on to say, “I think people have gotten it wrong, they think their opinion matters and holds weight. And I don’t know why they’re giving themselves so much credit. So I thought it was important to remind them that I don’t care. My life is full, I like food a lot — I really like to cook, I like to live. I find joy in that and we’re doing all right in our household.”

Pink ended the interview on a positive note, encouraging others to laugh off any unwarranted criticism they may face, saying, “While you shouldn’t hide your feelings or run from pain or numb yourself down I still think it’s really important to laugh at all of it.”
