Billboard has named Pink the Woman of the Year and has now posted an interview with her following the honor. Here are highlights:
On being a woman in music: "It's never been a disadvantage for me. I love being a woman. I love women in music—I love the whole idea of it, I love the cycle of it, I love the different decades of it. One of my greatest advantages was just being myself when I first came out. And then being so polar opposite of every other female that was happening at that moment. I think it's incredible women are running sh*t. There's not really any males that are at the level of the Beyoncés and the Katy Perrys, except maybe Justin Timberlake. I can't really think of anybody else."
On "Just Give Me A Reason" being her biggest hit: "It felt awesome, because I wrote that song, I fought for that song, I fought to have Nate do that song, I fought for the entire thing. And it took many, many months to make that song happen. And I just didn't give up. When I f*cking want something I go after it."
On a typical day on tour: "Typical day is wake up, Papa takes Willow to breakfast, then we go to the park. It's basically all about Willow. I go to the gym. Then we play for a little while, then we go to yoga and Willow comes. We do family yoga here with the dancers and some of the band and some of the crew here. And then we do sound check and then we eat. Then I do hair, I get my makeup done. Then I do my vocal warmups, I do my physi warmup, I do my prayer with the band and crew and then we go onstage. Then we get on the bus, go to sleep. Willow gets a bed, I go to the bunk. Then we wake up and do it all over again."
