Speaking with ET at the BMI Pop Awards, where the singer was honored with the BMI President's Award, Pink opened up with ET's Angelique Jackson on her epic response to those who criticized her weight.
"I don't take well to bullying. I never have. I'm not a person that will be bullied. I'm not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied," the 35-year-old "So What" singer shared, adding that despite her hard exterior, she's still feel things.
"I am a girl, I have feelings and people think I take no sh*t and I'm tough, tougher than nails, but I'm a human being," Pink added.
She also said the real problem with critics, body shamers and internet haters is that they have too high an opinion of themselves and their comments.
"I think people have gotten it wrong. They think their opinion matters and holds weight and I don't know where or why they're giving themselves so much credit, you know?" Pink explained. "So I thought it was important for me to remind them that I don't care. My life is full, I like food a lot and I really like to cook, I like to live, I find joy in that and were doing alright in the Hart household."
In the end, Pink -- who's married to Carey Hart -- says all the criticism and all the hate just builds character and strength.
"Unless you've been dragged through the dirt then it really doesn't end up being worth it when you get to the top, right?" Pink said of her storied career.
She adds that through the course of her music career she's "exercised a lot of demons."
