Pink, one of the OG pop divas herself, has always been known for her honesty and tell-it-like-it-is attitude. So it shouldn't be too surprising that she recently opened up about a very personal experience that happened to her more than 20 years ago. 

Pink is currently the mother of two children, Willow Sage (seven years old) and Jameson Moon (two years old), with husband Carey Hart. However, in a new interview with USA Today, the singer revealed that one of the songs on her new album is about having a miscarriage at the age of 17. 

Pink, who's now 39, shared how going through that experience shaped her, her life, and her career. And as we've come to expect from the star, she didn't hold back whatsoever. 

Pink is pretty much amazing.

Her storied career has spanned nearly two decades. If you grew up listening to her music, odds are that some of your faves include "There You Go," "Don't Let Me Get Me," "You Make Me Sick," Just Like A Pill," and many, many others. Without a doubt, the girl can sing. She's also done a bit of voiceover work, too — anybody else remember her from Happy Feet 2?

And in really exciting news, Pink has released new music!

After what feels like an eternity of patiently waiting, fans at last got to hear what Pink has been working on for a while. Just last week, the singer released her eighth studio album, Hurts 2B Human. The record has a total of 13 tracks, and it includes appearances from Cash Cash, Chris Stapleton, Khalid, and Wrabel. 

I am definitely struggling to contain my excitement about this.

The first single off Hurts 2B Human is called "Walk Me Home."

It was written by Nate Reuss, Scott Harris, and Pink, and produced by Peter Thomas and Kyle Moorman. Pink had previously teased the song when she appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in February to announce her plans to release an upcoming album. That was also around the same time when she received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Now that the album is out, fans have even more Pink tunes to jam out to.

When asked about the inspiration behind Hurts 2B Human, Pink told EW that she can be a bit unpredictable when it comes to the music-making process. 

"I am very much a mystery bag," she said. "I don’t believe in genres. I just believe in music and speaking your heart. I usually go on tour and stop writing altogether but we just never stopped. I just never stopped."

Hurts 2B Human aims to show the many sides of Pink and her personality.

"I laugh more than anybody I know because I like to take the piss out of everything," she told EW. "But I also have this contemplative, serious side, and I know we’re all a little bit anxious now. You can’t help but feel that. But there’s always humor and there’s always dancing. These are songs that are a catalyst to all of us getting together to have group therapy and exorcise those demons."

Motherhood is a big aspect of Pink's identity.

The family that trumpets together ....

She has two children with her husband Carey Hart. Her first, daughter Willow Sage, was born in June 2011. Her son Jameson Moon followed in 2016. 

Unfortunately, Pink has faced quite a bit of mom-shaming on social media. It got so bad that she opted to stop sharing family photos on her accounts altogether, which is definitely a bummer because, well, look at how cute they are!

In a new interview, she revealed something very personal to the public for the first time.

In the song "Happy" off her new EP, Pink sings: "Since I was 17, I’ve always hated my body / and it feels like my body’s hated me." 

She explained the true meaning behind those lyrics to USA Today. "The reason I said (that) is because I've always had this very tomboy, very strong gymnast body, but actually at 17 I had a miscarriage," she told the publication. 

She discussed how that experience shaped both her life and her music.

"And I was going to have that child," Pink said. "But when that happens to a woman or a young girl, you feel like your body hates you and like your body is broken, and it's not doing what it's supposed to do. I've had several miscarriages since, so I think it's important to talk about what you're ashamed of, who you really are and the painful (expletive). I've always written that way."

Going to therapy ultimately helped Pink process the trauma she went through.

"I believe in self-confrontation and just getting things out," Pink told USA Today. "What I love about therapy is that they'll tell you what your blind spots are. Although that's uncomfortable and painful, it gives you something to work with. I think the reason I can go to such uncomfortable places and be so honest is because I have a really healthy sense of humor."

And she continues to be an inspiration for moms and people everywhere.

Pink's ability to be so candid about the ups and downs she's experienced in life is what makes her such an icon. 

"I’ve always been a person who likes to shake hands with the elephant in the room," she explained to EW. "I don’t feel like I’m any different than anybody else but maybe I’m just able to talk about it. I believe in therapy and I think music is therapy."
