P!nk has revealed in a new interview that she and husband Carey Hart are raising their infant son and 6 year-old daughter without pushing them to conform to gender roles and heteronormativity.
“We are a very label-less household,” the singer and actress told The Sunday People.
“Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman,” she added. “I was like: ‘Great, can you teach me how to make African food?’”
“And she’s like: ‘Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.’
“I was like ‘what the f***, who are you? Who is paying for this by the way?’”
She also expressed that she is pleased to see that her children aren’t the only ones being raised in progressive environments.
“I was in a school and the bathroom outside the kindergarten said: ‘Gender Neutral – anybody,’ and it was a drawing of many different shapes,” she shared. “I took a picture of it and I wrote: ‘Progress’. I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation.”
P!nk also spoke out earlier this year while accepting an MTV VMA Award in defense of gender nonconformity, sharing a heartfelt story about her daughter, whom she says enjoys sometimes dressing in “masculine” clothing.
P!nk has also said that she is not interested in labeling her own sexuality, a topic of much conversation and debate over the years.
“I feel like people are just less inclined to be labeled now, which I really like,” she said in a recent interview with The Guardian. “That’s where I was always coming from. Just, leave it alone. I just wanna live my life.”
“I don’t need you to put me in a box or to figure me out or to figure out what I am,” she added. “Cos I don’t know yet. And I never say never.”
P!nk also revealed her daughter’s nickname for the president: Donald Duck Trumpet.
“I don’t correct her. And I should, because it’s disrespectful, but it’s like – ‘f*** it’. I feel like we are all in this permanent state of f*** it,” she said. “I can’t imagine being a third-grader and this being the first example of what it means to be President.”
