US singer Pink revealed she had a miscarriage as a teenager and that the loss served as inspiration behind some of the most emotional lyrics on her new album.
The pop singer describes feeling insecure about her body in the ballad “Happy”.
Pink, 39, said she’s had “several miscarriages” since then and eventually went to therapy to help her deal with the heartbreak. She said she wanted to be honest about her experiences because it’s important to talk about what you’re ashamed of.
Despite the heartbreak of her first miscarriage, it wasn’t until five years later, at age 22, when Pink first went to therapy, shortly after the release of breakthrough second album “Missundaztood” in 2001. She credits her best friend and former assistant, Laura Wilson, for urging her to go, and says she has been with the same therapist ever since.
The song, “Happy,” a track off the album, “Hurts 2B Human,” released last Friday, also describes her relationship with husband Carey Hart. The couple are parents to daughter Willow, 7, and son Jameson, 2.
Regarding her children, while she’s often shared photos of Willow and Jameson on social media, Pink has said that will likely end because of the mean-spirited comments some people leave on her posts.
