Pink’s daughter, Willow, 6, is the complete opposite. “Willow won’t cry ever, and it annoys me to no end,” the 3-time Grammy winner admitted.The musician then recalled a conversation she had with the first grader outside the little girl’s school. “I knew she was upset and she wouldn’t talk to me. I sat down on the pavement and I was like, ‘I’m not moving until you tell me about your feelings, because this is going to be a lifelong conversation for you and me and you have to learn to let me in,’” Pink told the magazine. “Without batting an eye, she goes, ‘I promise to tell you more about my feelings if you promise to tell me less about yours.’”
The chart-topping artist was taken aback by Willow’s snarky response. “In my head I was like, ‘Holy s—t!’ But I said, ‘Not going to happen. People pay me for my feelings,'” quipped Pink, who has earned $110 million since 2000, according to Business Insider. “She processes differently than I do, and it’s teaching me a lot about how to deal with people. I process out loud. She does it inside and it scares me a little, but I have to let her go through her process.”
Pink shares Willow and 17-month-old Jameson with husband of 12 years, Carey Hart. The family is accompanying Pink on her Beautiful Trauma tour, which kicked off in March and ends in September.
“I’ve never juggled so many damn plates in my life, but it’s because I want to. I enjoy it,” Pink told Redbook. “If I had nannies raising my kids and just wanted to be a rock star and party all the time, I wouldn’t be successful and I wouldn’t be happy.”
If the children start to miss their normal life back home, Pink said she will stop touring. “They are by far the priority,” she explained. “But I think it’s cool that they get to see their mom be the boss and work really freaking hard to realize a dream. I’d say it’s 95 percent positive.”
