Pink defends weight gain

Pink "feels beautiful" and isn't worried about her weight.

The 35-year-old singer attracted some unwelcome comments about her weight after donning a black dress for the John Wayne 30th Annual Odyssey Ball in Beverly Hills on Saturday (11.04.15) but she insists she isn't concerned about her size and is "perfectly fine and happy".

She tweeted last night (12.04.15): "I can see that some of you are concerned about me from your comments about my weight. You're referring to the pictures of me from last night's (Saturday) cancer benefit that I attended to support my dead friend Dr. Maggie DiNome. She was given the Duke Award for her tireless efforts and stellar contributions to the eradication of cancer. But unfortunately, my weight seems much more important to some of you.

"While I will admit that the dress didn't photograph as well as it did in my kitchen, I will also admit that I felt very pretty.

"In fact, I feel beautiful. So, my good and concerned peoples, please don't worry about me. I'm not worried about me. And I'm not worried about you either.

"I am perfectly fine, perfectly happy, and my healthy, voluptuous and crazy strong body is having some much deserved time off.

"Thanks for your concern. Love, cheesecake.(sic)"

The 'Perfect' singer's husband Carey Hart is a big fan of her more voluptuous figure, while their three-year-old daughter, Willow, is interested to know why her mother feels "so squishy".

She tweeted: "Willow said to me the other day whilst grabbing my belly -- 'mama-why r u so squishy?' And I said..'b/cuz I'm happy baby.'

"And my hubby says 'it's just more to love baby' (and then I smack his hand off my booty cause we're in a supermarket).(sic)"
