Pink revealed that she had a miscarriage at age 17 and has had several since then.
It all started when the 39-year-old singer released her new song, “Happy,” with the lyric, “Since I was 17, I’ve always hated my body / And it feels like my body’s hated me.”
USA Today asked Pink about that lyric and she was very open with her response.
“The reason I said (that) is because I’ve always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17 I had a miscarriage,” Pink said. “And I was going to have that child. But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it’s not doing what it’s supposed to do. I’ve had several miscarriages since, so I think it’s important to talk about what you’re ashamed of, who you really are and the painful (expletive). I’ve always written that way.”
