Pink: 'I Was an Honorary Lesbian'
By Diego James
Although News of the World published a fabricated story about Pink coming out as bisexual years ago, it didn't seem to faze the fun-loving singer who is currently promoting her latest album, The Truth About Love.
The Advocate recently spent some quality time with Pink for its November cover story, and they discussed her family (she's married to motocross racer Carey Hart and has a baby with him). Even better, Pink didn't shy away from discussing her sexuality.
“Honestly, I’ve never defined myself,” Pink says. “I’ve never felt the need to. I still don’t. It’s just like how everyone’s like, ‘Well, what kind of music do you do?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t. I just do it.’ And fuck it, if you can’t understand it, I’m a mystery bag...
The kind of world I live in and lived in was this sort of very open one. I was like a club kid. I was a little candy raver, and I am the kind of person that sucks the marrow out of the bones of life. Those days were really crazy and lots of all-nighters. And with a bunch of other kids that were trying to find themselves and have a good time doing it and get out from under their parents — and there was a lot of ecstasy. And as far as I’m concerned, when you’re on ecstasy there’s no such thing as definable sexuality. There is just love. There’s only love. That’s all there is, and then, if you like it enough, you’re like, God, they should give this out at the lunch line in school because then I’d really like my teachers and the whole world would make sense. And you know, then you get sober and you’re like, Wow, I wore that? I dressed up as a bumblebee?”
The 33-year-old singer and multi-millionaire is proud to remember those days when she goes to explain: “I loved my little girlfriends and we kissed and we had a great time and we held hands. When I first moved to Los Angeles, I was an honorary lesbian of Los Angeles. I wasn’t gay, but all my girlfriends were. So no, it wasn’t a big deal for me, but when [a tabloid] comes out and says, I just said I was bisexual, it’s like what? That wasn’t my truth, and I like truth. I like absolute truth.”
So now you see why you always loved that energy and honesty of Pink: because it's legit.
