One of our favorite female voices in music, Pink, has been out of the spotlight for a while because she has been busy with her beautiful baby daughter at home with husband Carey Hart. In a new interview with Cosmopolitan, the singer opens up about how motherhood has changed her.
Willow Sage Hart was born last summer and Pink has been playing mommy full-time ever since. It’s been four years since she dropped her hit-heavy (“So What,” “Sober”) party album Funhouse, and the singer is finally back in studio working on a new album … but the process is a little different this time around.
“I’m used to going into the studio and smoking and drinking until three in the morning. But I can’t drink as much because I’m breastfeeding,” she told the mag.
“See this glass of wine? Before, I’d have, like, four of them. Now, one is good. Oh, and I quit smoking,” she continued. “I’ve exorcised a lot of my demons, but I’m still working on myself. I think I’ll be a work in progress for the rest of my life.”
She’s also coming forward to say that despite the way culture sells it, pregnancy is no picnic. “I thought I’d feel like a goddess. They sell you on that, like you’ll never feel more feminine,” she said. “Really, I just felt like a mess.”
Pink took to Twitter to celebrate her first Mother’s Day (May 13) with her fans, tweeting, “It’s my first mothers day- and I’m just filled to the brim with gratitude. My mama bear love goes out in the form of a mama bear hug to all.”
No word on when we should expect Pink’s new album to drop, but even if it only included her doing a dozen different Guns N’ Roses covers, we would still be satisfied.
