P!nk once expertly shut down a troll who claimed the singer looked ‘so old’, insisting that she’s happy to ‘age naturally’.
However, the no-nonsense singer wasn’t about to let him have the last word and quickly fired a response.
Posting the tweet back in 2018, the troll wrote: “Wow Pink looks so old that [she] should be named Purple instead.” Which doesn’t even really make sense, if you think about it.
Hitting back P!nk replied: “You must be from LA. Well, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally. And I’ve earned every f**king minute of my 38 years. How you lookin though? Cause I never heard of ya til you put my name in your mouth. I shall call you little purple troll.” Nicely done.
In a follow up tweet, she added: “I am of the mindset that it’s a blessing to grow old. That if your face has lines around your eyes and mouth it means you’ve laughed a lot. I pray I look older in 10 years, cause that will mean I’m alive.”
A couple of years later in 2020, P!nk wrote a letter to herself on Twitter, in which she was still getting used to ‘this new reality’ of her aging self but was resisting the temptation to have cosmetic procedures.
"Letter to self; Dear Me, you’re getting older,” she wrote.
“I see lines. Especially when you smile. Your nose is getting bigger ... You look (and feel) weird as you get used to this new reality. But your nose looks like your kids, and your face wrinkles where you laugh. And yeah you idiot ... u smoked.
“Every once in a while you consider altering your face, and then you watch a show where you want to see what the person is feeling... and their face doesn’t move. I cannot get behind it. I just can’t.
“I want my children to know what I look like when I’m angry.
“I’m fortunate because I’ve never really depended on my looks. I’ve decided that my talent and my individuality is far more important than my face. So get on board cause I am about to AGE THE OL FASHIONED WAY (in a tutu ruling s**t at 30 mph 100 ft in the air over 40) yasssssssss.”
