In the latest “Why did she even say that out loud?” celebrity news, apparently Pink supports parents hitting their children, lamenting “I think parents need to beat the crap out of their kids. I think the whole spanking thing and how it’s all gotten PC is for the birds.” For the birds? Apparently using the same parenting style as your grandparents also means using same slang.
The singer’s own parents kicked her out of the house at 15, a move that she looks back on and claims, “I deserved it. I would have kicked me out when I was 8.” So heads up to Pink’s kids: once you hit second grade, you should have your Dora book bag packed and ready to go, just in case.
Of her own father, Pink says “He put me through a wall…it’s the only reason I’m still alive.” And that’s how corporal punishment helped Pink totally avoid drug and alcohol abuse and created the emotionally stable individual her songs describe her to be. Just kidding. Has anyone ever heard Family Portrait? That song is no joke.
Pink explains that she had always felt like an underdog, starting “When I came out of my mom’s vagina.” So for a while now. The singer feels lucky she “did all of the crashing and burning early,” rather than in the public eye like Lindsay Lohan. Pink, we’re glad you feel okay about your parents’ child-rearing choices. But we’re personally going to stick to the ol’ Time Out Chair, if that’s alright with you.
