Though musical performer Pink has never been known for being model thin, as a woman in the public eye, her body has been scrutinized heavily. Tabloids used to be very harsh on the singer for not fitting out beauty ideal, she was in too good of shape and mocked for having man-abs. Later she was mocked for gaining 60 pounds while pregnant with her daughter. Not that it matters, but she lost those 60 lbs and even if she hadn’t, she shoved her body in her haters’ faces and twirled it around like a superhero at the Grammys in a much tweeted about and discussed performance to her single “Try.”
Pink (or is it P!nk?) exhibited killer coordination, flexibility, strength and general fitness during her daring acrobatic performance at the Grammy’s. She was flying through the air with the greatest of ease and she was looking damn good while at it. Now everyone wants to know her secrets in hopes of emulating her magic formula for their own bods.
Pink spoke with E! after her impressive spectacle giving the world a glimpse into what she does to get her body to do all those neat tricks.
She works out:
“On tour I work out about five times a week,”
She apparently does about 60 to 90 minutes of exercise a day, combining P90X, running and hot yoga:
“I do an hour of cardio and an hour of yoga with my dancers before almost every show. Sometimes I feel more like an athlete than a singer!”
She doesn’t even need to be preparing to dazzle crowds to work out, she finds motivation inside herself:
“Even when you’re not in the mood, it’s worth motivating yourself to do something,”
Pink was once a vegan, but now eats health proteins like chicken and fish. She follows a healthy diet, but will break her diet occasionally as to not lose her mind:
“If I’m hungry for bread or pasta or a french fry, I eat it,”
What’s her favorite indulgence:
“I cannot resist cheesecake! You can’t be too controlled.”
Her healthy habits extend beyond physical fitness and a healthy diet mindset. Pink is able to recognize her issues with body image without letting it drag her down.
“I’d love to be 10 pounds thinner, but it’s not in the cards for me. And I’m totally OK with that.”
Tyra Banks would be proud.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go do a few feeble cartwheels and somersaults and pretend I’m an acrobat.
