Pink is opening up about a painful time in her life.
In a new interview, the 39-year-old singer reveals that she suffered a miscarriage as a teenager and has had more since. The interview follows the release of her latest album, Hurts 2B Human, where in the song "Happy," she croons, "Since I was 17, I've always hated my body / And it feels like my body's hated me."
"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," Pink tells USA Today. "And I was going to have that child. 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 s**t," the mom of two -- she and husband Carey Hart share Jameson, 2, and Willow, 7 -- continues. "I've always written that way."
Additionally in "Happy," Pink opens up about her relationship with Hart, singing, "Since I was 22 / I've been with somebody who loves me / And I've been trying to believe it's true / But my head always messes up my heart, no matter what I do."
"He's the biggest part of my village," Pink says, before adding that her new album is "not as angsty and marital as previous records."
"There's certainly not a place for 'So What' right now," she adds in reference to her 2008 track, which was released during the couple's year-long separation in 2008, following their 2006 nuptials.
Pink also credits the longevity of her relationship to attending therapy.
"I believe in self-confrontation and just getting things out," she says. "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," she continues. "I'm extremely self-deprecating, and when s**t goes bad -- which in any life is inevitable -- you've just got to find the funny. It's because I can laugh that I can cry so hard."
Her comments on therapy come just days after the "Just Give Me a Reason" singer revealed that she and Hart have been in therapy for nearly 17 years.
"Carey and I have been in couple's counseling almost our entire 17 years we've been together. It's the only reason we're still together," she said on Today, before revealing why therapy is so helpful to them.
"... He speaks Polish, I speak Italian and she [our therapist] speaks both. We do not speak the same language," she explained. "...We come from broken families and we had no model of how are we supposed to keep this family together and live this crazy life? And there's no model. There's no book that says, 'Here's how to do this.' So we go to counseling and it works."
