Pink on the pain of miscarriage: ‘You feel your body is broken’
Pink has opened up in her latest album, Hurts 2B Human, about the pain she felt after having a miscarriage.
One of her songs from the new release contains lyrics, “Since I was 17, I’ve always hated my body / and it feels like my body’s hated me”.
In fact, the 39-year-old singer reveals she was talking about losing a baby at that age.
Pink opens up about the pain she felt after having a miscarriage
Speaking with USA Today, Pink said: “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.
“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.”

The Who Knew singer is now mum to Willow, seven, and Jameson, two, with her husband Carey Hart.
“I’ve had several miscarriages since,” reveals Pink, but she credits her husband for his support. “He’s the biggest part of my village.”
