Art work from Pink’s latest album ‘The Truth About Love’
Pink has always been a friend to the LGBT community, most recently voicing her support for equal marriage on the GaydarRadio breakfast show last month. She’s been married to motocross racer Carey Hart since 2006, but has always had a – how shall we put it? – a ‘rapport’ with the ladies.
In a recent interview with The Advocate, she opened up about her own sexuality: “When I first moved to Los Angeles, I was an honorary lesbian of Los Angeles. I wasn’t gay, but all my girlfriends were,” she said.
The singer added that she was uncomfortable when The News Of The World reported she was bisexual: “That wasn’t my truth, and I like truth. I like absolute truth.” She said: “Honestly, I’ve never defined myself. I’ve never felt the need to. I still don’t. It’s just like how everyone’s like, ‘Well, what kind of music do you do?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t. I just do it.’ And fuck it, if you can’t understand it, I’m a mystery bag.”
Pink also discussed her feelings about her LGBT fans: “They’ve been the most loyal part of what I do. They’ve been my most loyal friends, to be honest. I’ve had a lot of my gay boys around, but my gay girls are my rootstalk. They’re my honesty in an ocean of bullshit.”
She added: “I should be gay by the way that I look and the way that I am. I just happen to not be. But it just makes perfect and complete sense.” In September Pink told GaydarRadio: “I think that the best day will be when we no longer talk about being gay or straight – it’s not a ‘gay wedding’ it’s just a ‘wedding’, it’s not a ‘gay marriage’ it’s just ‘a marriage’.”
