Pink Reveals Food Indulgences and Her Plan to ‘Get Really Fat and Happy’

Pink loves good food  and she’s not ashamed to say she eats a lot.

Especially while she’s on tour and ends up working out for four and a half hours a day: “a two-hour show, plus yoga, cardio and a rig check with the flying apparatuses,” Pink tells Food & Wine‘s editor in chief Dana Cowin in a new interview. “But here’s the issue: I don’t change my eating when I get home. So everyone always asks me, ‘What are you going to do after?’ And I say, ‘Get really fat and happy.'”

Pink’s current food obsession is halloumi cheese, which offers further proof that she is our spirit animal.

“I grill it for salads with truffle oil and dandelion greens — the more exotic the greens, the better,” she says. “I don’t care if people think halloumi’s squeaky; they’re wrong.” (Agreed, girl. Agreed.)

Willow, Pink’s 4-year-old daughter, has clearly inherited her mother’s excellent taste.

“My daughter went through a clam phase. She loved them because the shells are like Pac-Man!” the singer says.

Then there was Willow’s chicken phase … which began even before she was born.

“I haven’t eaten anything four-legged or cute since I was 15. I had also stopped eating chicken, but when my daughter, Willow, was in my belly, she just demanded chicken wings and fingers,” Pink says.

While now the singer sips on Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine and takes cooking classes in France, she doesn’t forget her humble origins: running the show at McDonald’s.

“It was important to my family that I make my own money. I was a drive-through girl at McDonald’s. I had a Janet Jackson microphone — I had power.”

Love her, and her voice. P!nk and Kelly Clarkson two of the most real people, and hands down two of the most talented singers out there.

A true talent and her husband’s cute too!!!

Must be brain dead feeding clams to a 4 year old. Ridden with bacteria. If you want to eat clams and oysters as an adult, it’s your business, but spare the kids.

I really doubt someone really fat is happy…

Come back to us, Pink. We can be fat and happy together.

I Luv Pink’s music and Halloumi cheese.

Megan, I think she means she’ll gain 5-10 lbs and relax and enjoy herself. We all deserve that from time to time then you get back on track. I don’t think she has obesity in mind 😒

Linda on

Pink is so real,’ smart and living a real life and motherhood. Doesn’t live by the b.s rules others try to impose! Wish there were more women and artists like her.
