Pink Inspires with Health Victory Following COVID-19 Setback
Grammy Award-winning singer Pink has recently hit the headlines with her frank discussion on what led to her significant weight gain during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how she managed to shed the pounds before heading out on tour.
“Having breaks is good for my voice. Not so good for the body,” Pink, 43, told Variety in an interview published this week, adding “I gained 36 lbs. All I did was make sourdough and then eat the sourdough.”
The artist’s husband Carey Hart, a professional motocyclist, also faced health scares earlier this month, when he needed a catheter installed in his chest to fight an infection.
Pink, who is currently gearing up for a world tour following the release of her ninth studio album, Trustfall, revealed that despite her setback, she has managed to lose the 36 pounds she gained due to COVID, and is ready to hit the road.
“Now I’m the bionic woman. I’ve lost those 36 pounds, and I am stronger than I’ve ever been in my life. And I’m ready to go, and I’m ready to get the hell out of here. I’ve been home way too long,” Pink explained.
The singer-songwriter, who has pulled inspiration from obstacles she’s faced over the last few years, has been praised for her candid nature – especially when it comes to motherhood. When her daughter Willow called herself “the ugliest girl I know,” Pink’s response was to make a PowerPoint presentation for her daughter featuring androgynous rock stars and artists that live their truth and “wave their flag and inspire the rest of us.”
Pink’s inspiring story of starting on a low point but powering through to come out a victor serves as example of strength and resilience.
