When Pink accepted the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, she delivered a tremendously moving speech and shared a story about Willow. "Recently, I was driving my daughter to school and she said to me, out of the blue, 'Mama, I'm the ugliest girl I know,'" Pink explained. "She was like, 'Yeah, I look like a boy with long hair.' And my brain went to, 'Oh my God, you're 6. Where is this coming from? Who said this? Can I kick a 6-year-old's a**?'"
"Her eyes glazed over," Pink joked. "But then I said, 'I really want to know why you feel this way about yourself.'"
Willow repeated, "I look like a boy." But when Pink asked, "What do you think I look like?" Willow responded, "You're beautiful."
Pink continued on, recalling the words she said to Willow at the time, and then concluded her speech with a heartwarming message to her daughter.
"So, baby girl," she said, "We don't change. We take gravel in a shell and we make a pearl, and we help other people to change. ... You, my darling girl, are beautiful and I love you."
As serious as it was, Willow reacted in a hilarious way, opening her eyes wide and tapping her teeth. We can't wait for her to rewatch the footage of this some day when she's older. #Memories!
