She's long been pop's punky wildcard, with rumors of her sexuality oft-swirling about her public persona. But for Pink, a 38-year-old mother of two, labels aren't important.

Speaking to The GuardianPink said, "I think people like Miley [Cyrus]... I feel like people are just less inclined to be labelled now, which I really like. That’s where I was always coming from. Just, leave it alone. I just wanna live my life. I don’t need you to put me in a box or to figure me out or to figure out what I am. Cos I don’t know yet. And I never say never...”

Though she's been married to her husband, Carey Hart, for 11 years, Pink's long been a symbol of sexual and gender fluidity.

Speaking at the MTV VMAs earlier this year, where she received the Video Vanguard award, Pink recounted a story of her six-year-old daughter coming home from school and saying she felt ugly and that she looked like a boy with long hair. Pink made a powerpoint presentation for her daughter in response, showing images of androgynous legends like Prince, Freddie Mercury, and Janis Joplin. “We don’t change," Pink told her daughter. "We help other people to change, so they can see more kinds of beauty.”
