Pink is not here to listen to haters, and she has never balked at speaking her mind.
When a troll decided to claim that she looks distractingly old, Pink roasted that troll on Twitter.
But, interestingly, just weeks after being named most beautiful woman in the world, she doesn’t necessarily disagree with the person’s opinion. Take a look:
Someone on the interwebs decided to diss the 38-year-old singer in a tweet … and, in the process, appeared in Pink’s Twitter mentions.
"Wow Pink looks so old that she should be named Purple instead."
That’s one of those lines that feels like a sick burn unless you think about it … at all.
(Why is purple somehow older than pink? What does this person know about colors that we do not?)
Pink saw this and decided to call out the hater with a tweet of her own.
"You must be from la," she writes.
Los Angeles has a reputation for an intense preoccupation with certain beauty ideals, including youth and fitness. It’s not just Hollywood, either.
"Well, there are a few people left in the world that choose to age naturally."
To be clear, natural aging can be fast or slow, depending upon factors like childhood, genetics, sun exposure, becoming a parent, and facial expressions.
Pink continues to roast her hater, writing:
"And I’ve earned every f–king minute of my 38 years."
She has led and continues to lead a very full life.
Then, she turns the tables.
"How you lookin though?"
She points out that it is easy to ridicule and attack famous people — and that her hater is nothing of the sort.
"Cause I never heard of ya til you put my name in your mouth."
She decides on a name for the person who decided to ridicule her looks in her own mentions.
"I shall call you little purple troll."
Pink put up a follow-up tweet for her followers, speaking much more generally.
"I am of the mindset that it’s a blessing to grow old."
Well … I personally would agree that it is a blessing to live a long time. Forever, ideally.
But Pink says that the physical signs of aging are a badge of pride.
"That if your face has lines around your eyes and mouth it means you’ve laughed a lot."
It certainly does. In fact, some actors find that their faces age prematurely because they spend every day at work making facial expressions on camera instead of staring into a screen with resting b–chface.
Pink says that she eagerly anticipates new signs of aging.
"I pray I look older in 10 years."
That sounds like an odd statement coming from anyone over the age of 15, but Pink’s next line may jar your sense of perspective.
"’Cause that will mean I’m alive."
Fans cheered her on, with one writing.
"Cant wait to see you when you’re 80."
They hope that she’ll still be doing shows as an octegenarian in the year 2060.
"And if you’re still doing aerial stunts, all the better."
Pink responded, delighted.
"You know I will!"
She even has a name in mind.
"I’ll call it ‘the wrinkles and rolls tour.’"
Obviously, a lot of people have a lot of opinions about the hideous and agonizing process of aging, with many seeing it as a disease that impacts all humans that, they hope, will one day be cured.
But this story is not really about your stance on wrinkles or other cruel failures of the flesh.
This is a story about not being f–king rude to celebrities on Twitter.
Especially when your tweet will show up in their mentions.
Oh, and especially when it’s Pink, who never hesitates to own pathetic trolls on Twitter.
