She can do better...
In an interview with E! News to promote her acting debut in Thanks For Sharing, Pink gave her opinion on Miley Cyrus' MTV Video Music Awards performance.
She said: "Am I into it? No, I think it's tacky. She's really freaking talented. She's beautiful. She can sing her ass off and to go up there and do that? She's cheating herself and she's cheating the rest of us…She can do what she wants. People can like it if they want. I'm not going to buy it. She can do better. I've seen her do better."
Pink's film co-star Josh Gad joked that Pink "twerks on set all the time." She replied: "I twerk all the time like a mofo. There's a place for that and it's not on stage."
Turning the conversation back to a more serious tone, she added: "I'm a performer and I take my craft very, very seriously and I always try to evolve and be better and I never just kind of phone it in, because I believe if people are going to get up and get out of bed and go to work and spend their hard-earned money on me to entertain their family, I'm going to do it well and I'm going to do it interestingly and with class and creativity. I'm not saying I always get there, but that's where I try to get to."
In the film, Pink is billed under her real name Alecia Moore. She plays a sex addict who looks for help in a 12-step program. Gad, Mark Ruffalo and Tim Robbins co-star as other addicts. Gwyneth Paltrow plays Ruffalo's love interest.
Pink continued: "I tell stories. That's what I do, but I write my own stories and I tell my own stories. This was just telling somebody else's, so you just have to figure out what parts you can relate to and go for it. It's not like I was playing an 85-year-old English woman."
Gad said: "She's stupid good. You get on set and you see this girl walking around being like, 'I hope I don't screw this up in front of you guys. I'm so sorry' [and] apologizing profusely. And then she comes at you with a dagger, stabs all of us in the face and steals the scene from everybody. She's the real deal."
